6 85th Cong. Is Greatest Peacetime Spender Last month a brief summary was presented of Farm Bureau activity in the second session of the 85th Congress which has adjourned. This is a continuation of the story. Farm Bureau policy, which was the basis of the position and testimony of the organization on each issue, is printed in bold face type at the beginning of each topic. PROMOTION OF RED MEATS Farm Bureau policy, 1958: "Support for asound, well-coordinated program without duplication of effort should be increased. The contribution and collection of funds should be handled directly between producers and marketing agencies on a voluntary basis. A voluntary program requires no new legislation." Legislation was introduced in Congress to provide for a checkoff program—very similar to that defeated in 1957—f0r the promotion of red meat. After hearings, H. R. 11330 was favorably reported by the House Agriculture Committee. But no further action was taken. After holding hearings, the Senat...

aTTOBER, 1958 Norfolk -- Princess Anne FBs Are Sponsoring Produce Market; Will Help Small Operators Many changes are occurring in tl, e methods farmers use to sell their commodities. Contract farming a part of the modern agribusiness concept, is being explored. Under this system, farmers have a market before they produce their commodities. Under this form of specialization, farms are getting larger in size and consequently, farmers 1 are becoming smaller in number. Many plans and ideas are expressed on this trend. The Norfolk and Princess Anne Farm Bureaus are taking action which they believe will aid the small producers in that vegetable producing area of the state. Contract type farming has been In existence among larger growers in that area for some time. But the little producers, who were not able to supply buyers with large quantities of produce they needed, were feeling the pinch of lost markets. From this experience, the curb produce markets have grown larger in Norfolk and a...

Dapis, Jr. of Halifax county, has announced that he will not be a candidate for reelection to the office of president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. Davis made the announcement at the October meeting of the Federation's State Board. He told the Board that he has become tired mentally and physically. He said that due to his five or six years of public service in Farm Bureau, as a member of the State ASC committee and in other capacities, he had been away from his farm and home a great deal and that he plans to spend more time there in the future. The officers and Board members expressed their regrets at his decision. Davis has served as president for the last two years and is only the second president since the reorganization in 1950.

4 Charlotte Farm Bureau Offers Unique Services To Members In 1950, the membership of the Charlotte County Farm Bureau was 70 families. Since then it has grown steadily and this year it reached a new all time high of 329. Why? There are many reasons for this growth, but three major ones must occupy a prominent place in the formular for any successful county Farm Bureau. First, Charlotte county has elected good leaders; secondly, the county has had hard workers; and thirdly, the county has worked for projects and services that benefit their members in the county and communities where they live. W. V. (Billy) Nichols, is the present president. He is also president and a member of the State Board of Directors of the Virginia Rural Letter Carriers Association. It takes a good county Farm Bureau Board, a lot of planning and work Billy will tell you, to make a county Farm Bureau mean something to the members. The Charlotte Farm Bureau doesn't meet very often, but when it does meet everythi...

6 Contract Farming Is Not New In Some Sections Of The U. S. Contract farming is an oft-heard phrase these days. But, agricultural economists at VPI point out, it is most talked of as a future development. Little is said of how much agricultural production is now contacted or has been contracted in the past. Contract farming, explains Harold Walker associate economist, may vitally affect the role of farmers in the future agricultural economy. Shifting of managerial decisions, lower capital needs for efficient production units, reduced risk (in some instances), and guarantee of future income are some of the factors influencing an increasing number of farmers to seek "security" by farming with contracts. Many people may not realize that contract farming and other forms of "vertical integration" have existed for a long time in the production of commercial fruits and tree nuts. In California almost all of the citrus is handled by cooperative organizations on a contract basis. In Florida ...

NOVEMBER, 1958 Farm Bureau Urges Vote For New Program Corn Referendum Set in 15 Counties, N0v.25 Corn farmers in the commercial area of the nation will vote Tuesday, November 25, on whether they want more freedom from government regulation of individual farming operations. This will be the third time farmers have voted on acreage allotments in a "cornplanter referendum." This year only about 14 percent of the commercial area's corn production is being grown in compliance with allotments. Now Congress has ordered a third referendum. Every eligible corn farmer should vote. The choice is simple. On the one hand, corn farmers can vote for the present program of acreage allotments, with price support at from 75 to 90 percent of parity for those producers who stay within their allotments (estimated to be 33 million of this year). If the majority of farmers voting choose to continue this old program, which corn farmers generally have refused to comply with, allotments would continue in eff...

DECEMBER. 1958 president Davis' Speech To Earn or Be Given A Living Is Great Agricultural Debate "The great debate in agriculture lodaji is shall the American farmer be given the opportunity to earn prosperity or shall he be given a living in agriculture," Roy B. Davis, Jr., President of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF), told the organization's annual convention Nov. 24. In his annual report to the delegates from the 79 member county organizations, Davis said "If we are to earn prosperity in agriculture we must respond to opportunities as they present themselves, we must produce competitively, produce for the market, expand our market outlets, adjust to changes, and increase our knowhow."- "If we are to be given a living in agriculture," Davis continued, "we must be willing to accept production controls, marketing restrictions, loss of opportunity, and decisions by others far from our fences." "If farmers choose this route they should take steps to decide who will get off ...

4 Annual Report of The Executive Secretary By M. A. Hubbard Once again it is my duty and pleasure to report to you on twelve months of helpful activity on the part of Farm Bureau in behalf of its membership, which in Virginia now totals 19,689 family memberships. This total represents our American Farm Bureau Federation quota, and this is the first year since our reorganization that we have attained it. Here is a very brief sketch of the highlights of Farm Bureau activities this year. This, of course, was a legislative year at the state level. Budget As is the case in nearly every instance when the budget was submitted to the General Assembly, we found that the sums recommended for our agricultural agencies were, in many instances, far from adequate to meet critical and, in many cases, long overdue needs. However, through our combined efforts, the amounts alloted to agriculture were increased by the General Assembly by approximately $1,400,000. 10 for 12 Aside from the budget, there...

DECEMBER, 1958 Organization Department By Cullen Johnson The highlights of your membership and other Farm Bureau activities during 1958 are featured in reports by your organization staff on this page. Due to the efforts of many Farm Bureau officers, board members, committee chairmen, members of committees and other leaders, we are able to report considerable progress. We shall never lose sight of the fact that without this voluntary support of the men and women working in all areas of Farm Bureau activity, a progress report of this kind could not be made. As of October 31, 1958, your membership has reached 18,447. Due to membership work in a number of counties prior to the convention, 1,242 have been reported for 1959. Therefore, to date you have 19,689 families in your organization. One of the major activities promoted by the organization staff this year was "The Standard", developed by county Farm Bureau presidents at their annual Conference last January.

At the Tuesday morning session, Burl S. St. Clair, president of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation, emphasized the importance of the voluntary aspects of farm bureau membership. Voluntary membership, he said, brings with it responsibility for financial support of the organization and for the development and execution of a program. In organizations where membership is not voluntary, Mr. St. Clair said, "we many times find programs which do not suit the members, but become selfish and are not in the public interest." He added: "A great many members, as illustrated by letters sent to the Senate Committee investigating racketeering in labor and other fields, ar...
