2 Hi Neighbor The Bth annual observation of Farm-City Week is scheduled for the week of November 17-23. We have a golden opportunity to create some good public relations with our non-farm friends. Farmers can explain their way of life, their weak points and their strong points to the city cousin. He can invite the city customer to visit the farm and see the farming process in action. The week provides a good opportunity to have well planned meetings with reputable agricultural speakers, and tours of various types of farming operations. There is, of course, another side to this exchange program. Farmers should see to it that they get into the towns and cities and visit businesses, labor groups, town council meetings and other activities that help create the everyday life of our city neighbors. A good listener sometimes makes a fast friend. It would behoove farmers to realize that our non-farm friends can also have problems which we could help them with. After all, the city dwellers c...

4 Board of Trade Leader Calls Price Fix Programs Harmful WASHINGTON, Oct. 16—If the government's farm price fixing practices of 1961 are continued, the American free agricultural system will be destroyed, Robert C. Liebenow, president of the Chicago Board of Trade, said recently. He declared (1) the U. S. Department of Agriculture by adding 45 cents to the support loan price of soybeans had so stimulated soybean production that a sizeable surplus probably will end up under government control, and (2) the government's sales of surplus corn have weakened corn prices and made that market subservient to government decisions. "The government," he said, "has become the one great price fixer in the corn market, at the same time it is using anti-trust provisions to prosecute price fixers. If this practice is continued, it will destroy current marketing facilities. "Under our capitalistic system, central markets for important commodities are established. Into these markets pour the hopes, fe...

2__ Control Or Bust The Feed-Grain Program that was forced on the farmers this spring by Secretary of Agriculture Freeman and his advisors is fast becoming another "Waterloo" for the American farmer. Mr. Freeman gave this program his blessings and led Congress and the American people to believe that the su-per-program would abolish most of the surpluses of the grain farmer and put more money in his pocket. At the same time this Ingenious program was to cost the taxpayers less money than any preceding program. Well, we are presently reaping some of the harvest of the seed sowed by the FeedGrain Program. Our production of feed grains this year is very little less than last year's production, which was a near record year—a total of 5.3% reduction over last year's production has cost to date, nearly 1 billion dollars. This is in addition to the cost of the regular farm programs. Still we shall add a sizable amount of surplus to the already bursting storage bins. It has become fairly obv...

November, 1961 The Gun At Our Heads 1969 or 1970, and that the final coupe-de-grace would be delivered by 1980. Assuming that this represents an admission that the Communist are running behind schedule, we have about 10 years more than we were given earlier. However, it is a wise fox who runs scared on the assumption that the hounds are closer than his sense of hearing and smelling would indicate. Any thought that the Communists will ever relinquish their goal of world domination is futile. Not only is the goal a part of their basic ideology, it is to them an absolute necessity if they are to implement their unnatural socialistic ideas completely in their own country. An example in point is found in the continuing Russian problem of agricultural production. It is a problem which faced the czars before the Bolshevik revolution, and which has continued to plague the Communists in spite of their great boasts of increasing productivity. The fact of the matter is, the Russians are unable...

2 Away We Grow We welcome two affiliate corporations to the ranks of the growing Virginia Farm Bureau Family. The State Board of Directors operating under directives given them by previous state conventions has established the Virginia Agricultural Marketing Association and the "Early Settlers" affiliate of the Mutual Insurance Company. The Virginia Agricultural Marketing Association (VAMA) is an organization through which farmers can get a seat at the bargaining table when quantity, quality, price, and other terms of trade are discussed. One of the great areas of weakness in agriculture has always been the lack of effective marketing. Farmers have concentrated too long only on the production phase of farming and have paid too little heed to the other half of the operation—namely the selling of their produce. It is the expressed hope of all who are involved in the VAMA that eventually farmers will come to use their own initiative through their organization to help solve the price-co...

December, 1961 Hubbard, Executive Secty, Gives Report If adversity is the mother of progress, then this,has been a good year for Farm Bureau. Certainly we have had our share of adversity. Hardship and reverses make or break people and character is the thing that determines the outcome. This principle also applies to organizations — including the Farm Bureau. If we believe firmly and staunchly defend the ideals and principles for which we stand, adversity can and will make of the Farm Bureau an even greater organization than it has ever been in the past. The outcome depends upon your unshakeable faith in the things for which we stand—in the eternal Tightness of our cause. A part of our business here at this Convention and a very important part it is—is to check the compass and through our resolutions make sure always that we continue on the right track. Every year we must re-earn the tribute paid to us by one of our good Congressman several years ago—"lt is amazing how often you are ...

6 Improving Your Bargaining Power Through Organization Changes in Marketing Changes in agriculture in the past few years have led many people to believe the time has come when FARMERS now can organize and control their own bargaining associations. With the concentration of buying power in the hands of fewer people it has become apparent that farmers must play a more important role in agricultural marketing. Price Problems When farmers have a product to sell that consumers want and need, farmers are in a good bargaining position. On the other hand. If there is a surplus, the chances are that the price farmers receive will be low. Extreme fluctuations in the farm price of some commodities have been ofte nenough to disturb many people. Extreme price spreads on a commodity from year to year makes it difficult for a farmer to plan for a profitable operation. The processor or buyers prefer more uniform prices, so they can maintain a normal volume through their facilities. Prices fluctuati...
