" ~/"7 Vol. 47, No. 5 Diesel fight fails FB places blame on collection plan By NORM HYDE VFB Staff Writer WASHINGTON—It was an expensive April Fool's Day joke. Virginia farmers started paying a 15-cent per gallon federal excise tax on diesel fuel April 1, despite overwhelming Congressional support for some sort of exemption. Virginia Farm Bureau Federation President Robert Delano laid the blame for the new tax squarely on last fall s confusing Budget Reconciliation Bill, which changed collection of the tax from the wholesale to the retail level. "It was an effort to raise money," Delano said. "It's not raising that money because it's just paper-shuffling, but it was an attempt to raise money to meet spending guidelines." The sad irony is that farmers do not owe the government one penny of the tax. They're exempt because they use diesel fuel for off-road purposes. But now farmers will have to file with the government to get their money back at the end of the year. That bothers Willia...

2 Land exchange a vision for the future " Where there is no vision, the people perish." -Proverbs 26:18 It has been just over a year since Virginia Tech exchanged one tract of land for another nearly seven times larger. And the old biblical proverb certainly does apply. Neither the institution nor officials at Virginia Tech would perish, but the principle of vision is sure apropos. Had not the leadership at our state's land grant university had visions of the need and necessity for expansion, it would remain cramped into the present acreage with no breathing room. Instead, Virginia Tech officials successfully negotiated a trade which gave up 270 acres of rapidly urbanizing development property for nearly 1,800 acres of some of the best, most productive farmland in the Old Dominion. As Dr. James Nichols, Dean of the College of Agriculture and one of the visionaries, stated: "A College of Agriculture uses farmland as a laboratory. It is indispensable and just as essential as a library...

May, 1988 Institute to aid small farmers By NORM HYDE VFB Staff Writer BLACKSBURG — A group of farm economists at Virginia Tech think the cattle business has been a case of David vs. Goliath for too long. So they've come up with a larger slingshot that will allow small farmers to lock in the same profitable prices that big cattle producers get through advanced marketing techniques. Beginning this month, Virginia farmers with as few as 10 head of feeder cattle to sell will be able to buy a minimum price contract through the Virginia Forward Pricing Institute, Inc. in Blacksburg. Virginia Tech ag economist Dr. Bruce Bainbridge is one pioneer of the program, the first of its kind in the country. He explains that farmers will be offered a minimum price guarantee for cattle delivered to a graded, comingled feeder state cattle sale, sponsored by the Virginia Cattlemen's Association. "Let's say for example he locks in a price of 80 cents a pound on his specific animals," Bainbridge says. "...

This has burned up some Virginia tobacco growers, like Richard Inge of Mecklenburg County, a member of the VFBF Flue-cured Tobacco Commodity Committee. "It takes away one of the pleasures that some people enjoy, like some people enjoy a cocktail or other things. They'll certainly continue to serve those on a plane, but if a fellow enjoys a cigarette they'll say no? Well, I won't be on that plane," Inge says.

6 1988: A very good year RICHMOND—Had the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 1988 lobbying effort on priority issues been a football season, farmers would have come away with a 7-2-2 mark — as in 7 victories, 2 losses and 2 ties. Overall, though, VFBF fared even better. Lobbying efforts helped gain favorable results on at least 27 issues, with only four failures. Included in all of this was more than $21 million in budget appropriations for various agricultural projects across the state. Farm Bureau helped attract $6.4 million in new monies for Virginia Tech programs, $4.9 million for the proposed Farmers' Market network, $5.5 million for soil and water conservation measures, and nearly $3 million for marketing initiatives at the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. 'This influx of new monies will help revitalize the economic base of agriculture and forestry in Virginia," said VFBF president Robert B. Delano. In addition, other non-budgetary policies which appear...

May, 1988 May designated as American pride month While environmentalists and other skeptics sometimes view farmers as contributors of rising pollution problems, let it be known here that farmers are perhaps the most efficient stewards of the land. Farmers, all farmers, have a vested interest in taking care of the environment, specifically the land on which they grow and raise their commodities. Conservation award participants sought The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has been named state sponsor for the 6th Annual National Soil and Water Conservation Awards Program. The awards program, sponsored by the National Endowment for Soil and Water Conservation and funded by the E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., is looking for farmers and ranchers who conserve soil in innovative and cost-effective ways. One farmer or rancher in each state is selected by June 1988 and that family is honored in a variety of statewide events. The state winners are eligible for national honors. "We bel...

10 Food giveaways ending, but Virginia set By NORM HYDE VFB Staff Writer WASHINGTON — Four of seven food commodities the USDA has been donating for distribution to needy families is no longer available. Rice, honey, non-fat dried milk and cheese products will no longer be distributed. Government-surplus butter, flour and cornmeal are still available for states to donate to the poor through social service agencies and volunteer food banks through the Temporary Emergency Food Assistance Program. Gene Vincent, public affairs specialist with the USDA's Food Nutrition Service, said the 1985 Farm Bill has done its work, and there are no more surpluses over the level set for standard government reserves for those products.

But after turning his financial records over to a Virginia Farm Bureau Federation financial consultant, he found out otherwise. In reality, just the opposite was true.

He was an experienced businessman and had survived all sorts of bad weather and low commodity prices over the years. But his experience, his harde...

2 A convention would balance the federal budget America's debt? $2,415 billion and rising. That figure alone should be enough to convince the U.S. Congress that a balanced federal budget is paramount. Apparently, it isn't. So, after more than a decade of debate and pressure from the states, Congress continues to ignore proposals that would balance our national ledger and bring fiscal restraint back to government. Virginia began pushing for a balancing act in 1976 through an amendment resolution that would set up a limited constitutional convention. In Article V of the Constitution, our Founding Fathers gave the states equal power with Congress to amend the Constitution through these means. Today, 32 of the required 34 states have a similar amendment which would bring about such a convention.

June, 1988 Despite rate increase, coverage is still valuable By NORM HYDE VFB Staff Writer There he was, out of work and wondering if his damaged arm would ever allow him to handle the workload on the farm again. How would his family make ends meet after the farm accident? How was he going to pay for all the medical expenses? The answer was simple: through Farm Bureau's Blue Cross and Blue Shield benefits. The Greene County Farm Bureau member said he would be bankrupt and out of business had it not been for Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Fortunately, Blue Cross basically paid to rebuild the farmer's arm. And other similar accidents have occurred to members during the past year. "Very few of us could stand an immediate hospital expense of $10,000, $20,000, or $50,000," noted VFBF president Robert Delano. 'That shows just how valuable a service Blue Cross coverage is to our members." Even despite rate increases. Each winter VFBF's Rural Health Committee wrangles with such questions as, "...

4 County president testifies against EPA ban WASHINGTON—A Virginia Farm Bureau county president was one of dozens to testify recently against a proposed federal Endangered Species Pesticide Labeling program. Stuart Lane, Caroline County Farm Bureau president, testified April 25 at one of eight public hearings held nationwide by the EPA. If the proposed change in the labeling of pesticides is put into effect, farmers in more than 1,000 counties which are the habitat of any endangered species of wildlife or plantlife would be severely limited in which farm chemicals they could use. "I will not presume to know and understand the workings of all federal rules and regulations," Lane told representatives of the EPA. "But it is clear even to this farmer that what we are talking about here is much more significant than a labeling change." Lane testified that he was a young "progressive" farmer who raised his crops in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and is dedicated to wildlife preservation on...
