Farm Bureau News General Assembly rules in favor of farming (Continued from page 1) committee meeting to oppose the bill. Poultry farmers argued that the legislation amounted to unnecessary red tape and bureaucracy because most of them have voluntarily implemented nutrient management plans and other conservation techniques. The bill was carried over to the 1999 General Assembly session and a committee will study the issue in 1998. The unity shown by Farm Bureau members and poultry producers was crucial to that decision, said Wilmer Stoneman, VFBF senior assistant director of public affairs. "This will allow the media hype to cool off and let the facts come out," Stoneman said. "Poultry producers have a year to show the What Are The Chances Of Entering A Long Term Care Nursing Facility? ... 40% of people in Virginia over 65 will enter a nursing home facility* ... their stay will cost them between $75,000 to $125,000** jd mjmm Some Benefits of Our Plan Are: > Care or Assist...

Farm Bureau News Piedmont's research focuses on new crops Editor's note: This is the 10th in a continuing series about Virginia's 12 agricultural research and Extension centers operated by Virginia Tech. By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor ORANGE—Green fields of wheat, barley and canola gleamed in the morning sun as Dave Starner drove a truck along a dirt road. The superintendent at the Northern Piedmont Agricultural Research and Extension Center has given tours of the facility to school groups, farmers, non-farmers and agriculture professionals. "Researchers at Virginia Tech try things on a small scale at the center so that farmers don't make big mistakes," he explained as he pulled up to a field of yellow switchgrass. He jJt * got out of the white pickup and walked part way through the switchgrass, which was taller than Starner. Popular in the Midwest for hay, switchgrass has proven so far that it will grow well in Virginia. "Most small farmers can't afford to test things on th...

April 1998 Young farmers plan for the future Young farmers in Madison County may be small in numbers, but their future looks promising. In fact, the Madison County Young Farmers' Committee won the title, "Most Promising New Young Farmers' Committee" for 1997 during the Young Farmers Leadership Conference Jan. 30Feb. 1 in Richmond. Among Madison's dozen committee members are at least three bright stars: president Jerry Carpenter, vice president Ralph Yowell and Rodney Lillard. Yowell won the discussion meet (public speaking competition) during the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 1996 Annual Convention, and Lillard won it at the 1997 convention.

"The typical motorist may not understand what the SMV emblem means," Stone said. "At the same time, farmers haven't done the best job of keeping up their end of the shared responsibility. "We need to understand each other's roles—as farmers and motorists." « That's why the Farm Bureau has launched a public awareness campaign to help educate the public and farmers about SMV signs.

"We went to Richmond and came back with smiles on our faces." Farm Bureau women have played key roles in other legislative campaigns as well. VFBF President C. Wayne Ashworth said, "Farm Bureau women were very instrumental" in helping Virginia become the state to write the most letters for the American Farm Bureau Federation's "Kill the Death Tax" campaign. The VFBF was recognized during the national convention for being the No. I state in the letterwriting campaign.

Farm Bureau Volume 57, Number 4 Poultry producers use natural fertilizer on crops By KATHY DIXON VFBF Communications Specialist Virginia poultry producers are practicing what environmentalists preach: recycling waste. Chicken and turkey growers across the state are using the manure, or litter, from their animals and applying it as a cost-effective, environmentally friendly fertilizer on their crop land. "It's a natural product," said David Moyer, a poultry producer in Powhatan County. "And whenever we can go back on the land with a natural product, it's better than a man-made one." Moyer's son, Vernon, noted that poultry litter holds moisture, which keeps nitrogen and phosphorous on the plant roots instead of running off the field into nearby waterways. In addition, the chicken manure is so rich in nutrients that it takes less commercial fertilizer to produce crops. And, the fields fertilized with poultry litter yield more crops, Moyer said. Freddy Holland, who raises Farm Bureau to...

Farm Bureau News Congressmen meet with farmers in Virginia By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor TAPPAHANNOCK—Congressmen met with Virginia farmers throughout April to discuss such timely subjects as taxes and food safety. The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation organized the meetings with the II representatives. They began with U.S. Rep. Herbert Bateman, R-lst, in Tappahannock on April 2, and ended with U.S. Rep. Rick Boucher, D-9th, in Abingdon on April 27. Since April 15 was the deadline for filing income tax forms, it was timely that farmers asked about ways to make their taxes more equitable. Unpredictable weather and markets make long-term financial planning and tax management difficult for farmers. Without a means to balance the swings in income, farmers end up paying more taxes than individuals with stable incomes. That's because income peaks are taxed at a higher rate than if the same income was spread out over several years. Farmers across America asked Congress to adopt legi...

May 1998 Here's a working solution for an old problem Every parent has faced the Challenge of finding reliable child care. It's even more challenging if you're poor and don't speak English. But a unique partnership in Florida has found a solution to the problem of finding child care for migrant and seasonal farm workers. The Redlands Christian Migrant Association was founded more than 30 years ago by members of the Mennonite church and a group of farmers who wanted to improve living conditions for their workers. "In Florida agriculture, the majority of families —mom and dad—both go to the fields together," said Barbara Mainster, RCMA executive director. Florida fruit and vegetable grower Jim Barfield remembers the time before RCMA existed.

May 1998 Dairy farmers press USDA for better prices ATLANTA—Virginia dairy farmers want better prices for their product and stability in the marketplace. They voiced those concerns here recently at a field hearing with U.S. Department of Agriculture officials, who are considering monumental changes in the nation's milk marketing system. "In return for providing consumers an affordable and reliable milk supply, dairy farm families deserve a market and pricing structure which recognizes regional milk market differences, provides price stability for a perishable commodity and does not unduly benefit producers in one region at the expense of producers in other regions," Martha Moore, director of public affairs for the Virginia Farm Bureau FB to miss friend of ag (Continued from page 1) County.

Farm Bureau News Degradable foam may be fertilizer BLACKSBURG —Foam instead of fertilizer? Researchers at Virginia Tech are studying a biodegradable foam that retains water, increases plant growth, and may become the newest fertilizer alternative. "I think it will have a use in nursery production and vegetables—maybe cotton, and possibly tobacco too," said W. Lee Daniels, a crop and soil environmental sciences professor at Virginia Tech, who is involved in researching the compound. "It looks real promising." While Daniels Is unable to confirm that the foam, which is called AGRICELL, will decrease the amount of nitrogen and phosphorous going into waterways, he said it probably will help. AGRICELL is made with urea-formaldehyde polymers, which are commonly used in slow-release nitrogen fertilizers, Daniels said.

Farm Bureau News Alliances may steer beef toward better prices By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor RICHMOND —Genetics, technology, improved marketing and an increasing world population are changing agriculture in big ways. Some cows are wearing electronic eartags. Ultrasound examinations, once limited to checking unborn babies, are now increasingly used to determine rib-eye scores and the fat content of live cattle. Their weight and measurements are taken and interfaced with computer models to improve breeding. Changes in technology and marketing will affect the price and taste of food that you pull off the grocery store shelf, especially in the meat department. The cattle industry in Virginia and throughout America is undergoing big changes, especially through the formation of alliances, said Bill McKinnon, a Virginia Cooperative Extension specialist in livestock marketing who's based in Blacksburg. Alliances occur when two or more cattle producers form a partnership with each o...
