Page 17 [Newspaper Page] — Farm Bureau News — 1 December 1987

December, 1987 We are opposed to Virginia being selected as a disposal site for high-level nuclear waste. HERBICIDES AND PESTICIDES We urge the development of state legislation that would absolve farmers against liability that might occur from proper chemical application when used according to labeled instructions. We will oppose any decision that arbitrarily prohibits the sale and use of farm chemicals in animal and crop production. We oppose certain activities of environmental groups who propose reduction in uses of pesticides and fertilizers, reduction in farm sizes and reduction in use of mechanical horsepower. We believe when EPA or other regulatory agency bans an agricultural chemical, they should be required to provide a means of disposal for the left-over chemicals. MINERAL RIGHTS We recommend state coal mining laws be modified to more realistically take into consideration coal encountered while construction is underway on projects other than for coal. We favor legislation t...

Farm Bureau Vol. 47, No. 1 VFB disappointed with Governor's budget plan By NORM HYDE VFB Broadcast Editor RICHMOND—The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation is disappointed with Governor Gerald Babies' lack of support for agricultural programs in the new state budget, and pledges to lobby for more funding during the General Assembly. Farm Bureau President Robert Delano voiced those concerns during a capitol news conference Jan. 18. "We feel that from a farmer or producer's standpoint, well need some amendments to the budget in order to not fully satisfy, but maybe adequately satisfy, the needs of agriculture in Virginia," Delano told reporters. Alternative Soybeans now make the headlines By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor Did you know that the ink used to print this month's Farm Bureau News could have come from Virginia soybeans?

2 Marketing high on legislative agenda Farm Bureau was disappointed with Governor Gerald Baliles' budget address prior to the start of the 1988 General Assembly. Funding of only about 30 percent of our $45 million legislative agenda was covered. That means our lobbyists must work extra hard this year to obtain some amendments to that figure. But with the influence and power of this wonderful grassroots organization, we are confident that more of our needs will be addressed by the end of the 1988 session. Here is a capsule summary of our 11 most important issues for the 1988 General Assembly: Farmers' Market Network Funding of $15.3 million for the proposed Virginia Farmers' Market network, which would include a multi-million dollar shipping point facility in Hanover County. The Hanover market, one of 10 proposed sites, would be the heartbeat of the entire network and would import produce from satellite markets around the state and ship to the northeast U.S. The overall network conce...

February, 1988 Net farm income is on rise across Virginia By NORM HYDE VFB Broadcast Editor RICHMOND—Farm income will be entirely different in 1988 for Virginia farmers, according to the chief economist for the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Dr. Berkwood Farmer says the type of commodities which will bring in the most money this year will flip-flop from 1987, and not just because of last year's drought. "If we look back over the last couple of years, we've had weak cash grain prices and high livestock prices," Farmer said at an official briefing for the Board of Agriculture in December. 'This trend is reversing itself. I'm forecasting that for corn, wheat and soybeans, prices will begin to pick up gradually. But they're still going to be low in relative terms." In addition, Farmer says the poultry sector in Virginia is expected to lose $10 million in income this year compared to last year, mostly due to a drop in prices last fall when an oversupply problem su...

February, 1988 New field sanitation standard takes effect The Virginia Safety and Health Codes Board recently adopted the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Field Sanitation Standard as the state standard. The Field Sanitation Standard which monitors toilet and hand-washing facilities will be amended to require potable water be made available to all workers. The state standard will go into effect Feb. 15. The Field Sanitation Standard recommended that the commissioner of the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry investigate the application of the standard during the winter months. There are no guidelines to interpret handwashing facilities when temperatures drop below freezing. The Field Sanitation Task Force also suggested that materials about the Field Sanitation Standard be distributed to aid employers in explaining the new law to their employees. In addition, the task force also requested that the commissioner look into situations where one or two employ...

6 Yuppies make their mark in agriculture By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor (Editor's note: This is the fifth in a series of articles on diversification exploring the methods farmers around the state have developed to supplement their incomes.) SCOTTSVILLE-"Yuppies" have made their mark in many facets of our society. A person driving a BMW is said to be a yuppy. Designers, such as Calvin Klein, have gone to great lengths to appeal to the preppy crowd with clothing and perfume. One of the latest trends to develop has been in the agriculture industry. If yuppies could name an official farm animal, then it would be the llama. According to Dr. Dale Graham of the Virginia Llama Breeders and Owners Association, citizens of the Commonwealth have become fascinated with llamas. Currently, there are 35 llama farms statewide and 20 of those are serious breeders. "Virginia is a state that has taken off with llamas," she said. Llamas have become especially popular with people who own small parcels...

February, 1988 Coyotes hound sheep farmers . t • ,i 1 Ann Tf» _ • • _ T~! _ By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor TAZEWELL—In cartoons, coyotes have been portrayed as witless, almost harmless animals whose hunting attempts go awry. In reality, they pose a threat to many sheep farmers in southwestern Virginia. According to Clinton Bell, president of Tazewell County Farm Bureau and a sheep farmer himself, coyotes were responsible for the deaths of 300 lambs in his county in 1987. "Predators are our number one problem," he said, "coyotes being more of a problem than dogs." Coyotes are not indigenous to Virginia, Bell explained. Although no one is sure how they arrived in the state, it is believed that coyotes migrated here from Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee or West Virginia. 'They've been in the Midwest for a long time," he said. "As it got more populated, they got pushed out. It's been a gradual thing. It didn't happen overnight." Winter and spring are the worst times for sheep farmers. Coyote...

February, 1988 Tire salesman a 'big wheel' WOODSTOCK—Noah Hepner is considered a big wheel in Shenandoah County. The 35-year-old Safemark dealer was recently named the state's champion tire salesman by the Virginia Farm Bureau Products Division. Competing with 165 dealers throughout the state, Hepner has been a dealer for eight months. During this time, he add over $35,500 worth of tires and other Safemark products through the Rockingham Farm Bureau Co-op Inc.

T * ' Farm Bureau Vol. 47, No. 2 The bounty is hoped to control the coyote population in Virginia. (Staff Photo) Medical inflation Farm Bureau wants answers from physician community By NORM HYDE VFB Broadcast Editor RICHMOND-Subscribers to Blue Cross and Blue Shield through the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation face at least a 16 percent increase in annual premiums beginning June 1. But before blaming Blue Cross for higher fees, keep in mind that the health insurance company is simply passing along the rising costs of health care, an issue that has Farm Bureau officials very concerned. The question Farm Bureau is asking is why? And then, what can be done? The VFBF, in cooperation with 31 other major corporations in the Richmond area, is arranging informal discussions between health insurance subscribers and health professionals.

2 Trends point to another boom in agriculture After the American farming nightmare of the 1980s, the cyclical nature of the food and fiber industry is again on the upswing. And with a little help from Mother Nature, we will boom into the 19905. The same trends that are currently taking shape were also forming in the late 1960s and early '70s, prior to the boom years of the mid-'7os. Lower interest rates, higher grain prices due to a smaller supply, and the weakened U.S. dollar abroad all point to the impending recovery, much like it did 20 years ago. But the difference between just a recovery and a boom depends on Mother Nature. Ironically, the U.S. agricultural industry won't prosper with plenty of soaking rains which lead to bumper crops in the largest producing states. Quite the contrary. Perhaps sounding a bit callous, we need a worldwide drought to further cut back our overabundance of feed grain supplies. And as the grain market goes, so goes every other commodity. With too mu...

March, 1988 Lobbying efforts worth millions to members By NORM HYDE VFB Broadcast Editor RICHMOND— Lobbying efforts by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation add up to savings for members in many ways. For instance, just last year efforts to increase state taxes on Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Virginia would have cost Farm Bureau members more than $1 million. Although it never made it to the General Assembly, the orignial lawmakers' plan was to tax Blue Cross premiums at a 2.75 percent rate, said Gary Gentilini, VFBF director of program development and assistant to the president. "This was described as a way to 'level the playing field' (between the non-profit Blue Cross and private health insurers) and would have cost our members about $1.3 million dollars more in taxes," Gentilini pointed out. But thanks in part to hard work from Farm Bureau lobbyists, Senate Bill 598 was amended to a lower tax rate of .75 percent. That averaged out to $30.81 per Farm Bureau family participating in ...

4 County FB president receives fellowship The president of the Botetourt County Farm Bureau has been chosen to receive a fellowship from the 1988 Leadership Development Program of the National Center for Food and Agricultural Policy. Michael W. Beahm will take part in a one-month study discussing the interrelationships between food, agricultural and related policies and the policy-making process.

"We are pleased to have Beahm as a participant in this year's program," said John Kornacki. "And we expect that each fellow will not only learn something about policy formation but contribute substantively to the discussion of new policy directions for American agriculture."
