Farm Bureau Vol. 47, No. 9 VFBF Convention to feature Wilder and Butz By KATHY BUTLER VFBF News Editor RICHMOND—Lt. Gov. L. Douglas Wilder will be keynote speaker at the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention Nov. 28 through Dec. 1 at the Marriott Hotel. He will discuss his observations about agriculture in Virginia and the concerns of the farming community. Another well-known figure, former U.S. secretary of agriculture Earl L. Butz, will be keynote speaker of Commodity Appreciation Day, Nov. 28. Commodity Appreciation Day, a first for the convention, will pay tribute to Virginia producers and kick off the meeting. Butz's topic will be "Our Fabulous Food System: America's Best Kept Secret." Wilder, a gubernatorial candidate, was born in Richmond and educated in Richmond public schools. He received his bachelor's degree at Virginia Union University and his juris doctor degree at Howard University School of Law. He is a lawyer and father of three. A Korean War veteran, he ...

2 Don't be fed a line about food prices The drought of 1988 has caused hardships for many farmers, especially in the nation's breadbasket. Production yields on many commodities are nearing an alltime low. And because of the interaction of supply and demand, some commodity prices, such as soybeans and wheat, are nearing record highs. But let's not talk ourselves into accepting dramatically higher food prices. That just isn't the case. In fact, food prices should remain the same, except in a few isolated cases. That's part of the reasoning behind the stockpiling of commodities in good production years. It's like an insurance policy. When we have poor harvest years, these stockpiles of feed grains and other staples help fill the void to assure that our food industry operates smoothly and efficiently. In addition, most of the costs of food — that is, the trucking, shipping, marketing, processing and storing — are tied to the retail sector, not the farming sector. In reality, it takes bu...

September, 1988 Major provisions Here are some highlights of the compromise health insurance bill: * Hospital — Full coverage for 365 days a year of hospital bills after a once-a-year deductible estimated at $564 in 1989. The deductible is indexed to rising hospital costs. Medicare now charges a deductible for each hospital stay during a year and provided full payment for just 59 days a year. * Doctor bills — Full payment of "reasonable and proper" doctor bills after a $1,370 annual cap is met. Medicare continues to pay 80 percent of charges, after a $75 deductible. Both the initial deductible and the 20 percent patient co-payment will count toward the $1,370 cap. Patient remains responsible for that portion of fees that exceed the amount allowed by Medicare. ♦Drugs — Medicare pays 50 percent Medigap Farm Bureau keeping up Continued from Page 1 Medicare benefits, Farm Bureau members will want to be sure their Medicare supplement insurance, or medigap policy, changes to keep up.

4 Hazardous substances Rules for farmers explained By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer RICHMOND-As of Aug. 8, all Virginia farmers with 11 or more employees are required to comply with the federal Hazardous Communications Act. "This means maintaining material safety data sheets on all applicable chemicals and teaching your employees how to use those chemicals safely," said Jean Guthrie, VFBF assistant director of Public Affairs. The law has four basic provisions, according to Ms. Guthrie: 1. Farmers must collect information from chemical companies about the possible dangers of all hazardous chemicals in use on their farm and post them where they may be read by employees. 2. Farmers must clearly label all containers with hazardous chemicals in them with warning messages and symbols. 3. Farmers must file a plan with government safety officials explaining how they're going to do both the first two steps... and train their workers in how to use any hazardous chemicals safely. 4. Farmers must...

September, 1988 Flue-cured Tobacco prices open low By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer HALlFAX—Opening day on flue-cured tobacco markets statewide was a little disappointing for Virginia farmers, as prices for primings, the lowest parts of the tobacco plant, brought between $1.17 to $1.20 a pound. Primings sold for an average of $1.32 last year. "With the substantial rains we had in late July, the primings probably had a little more dirt or sand on them than normal," said Stan Duffer, tobacco marketing specialist for the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. It appears there was a little less demand for these primings, he added. Duffer said as of Aug. 19, flue-cured growers certainly could use some more rains like the ones in July. All of August High demand 'Safer' cigarette marketed By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer PETERSBURG—Starting this month, the Keeney Tobacco Corp. will be manufacturing cigarettes containing an agent reported to be able to block some of the cance...

6 Farm safety is focus of week CHlCAGO—President Reagan has proclaimed Sept. 18-24 as National Farm Safety Week, the 45th annual observance. "Each year, hundreds of lives and millions of dollars are lost on farms because of preventable accidents and illnesses," said T. C. Gilchrest, president of the Chicago-based National Safety Council, a co-sponsor of the week. "Farming is one of the most dangerous occupations, and the President's proclamation helps to focus attention on farmers' special safety and health needs," he said. Agricultural work accidents resulted in 1,600 deaths and 160,000 disabling injuries in 1987, according to council estimates. Many farm residents also were disabled or killed in home, roadway and recreational accidents. Other farmers and farm workers suffered work-related illnesses, often caused by exposure to sun, dust, noise, toxic gases and chemicals. These illnesses can result in disability and sometimes premature death. Although the 1987 agricultural death ra...

The 26-year-old farmer was named to the five-member Floyd County Board of Supervisors July 15 to serve in a vacated post until the Nov. 8 election. Three years are left in that term, to which Ingram recently decided to seek election. "So far, I enjoy it. It's a challenge," he said in early August. But even before Ingram was appointed to serve temporarily with the governing body, he was watching how the county is growing and changing. So were some other farmers.

8 Warehouse passes on savings and quality Continued from Page 1 Last December, when a shortage of tires was predicted, the warehouse ordered 2,700 rear tractor tires at a discount on a delayed payment plan. They arrived in January and February, and every one was sold, said Diamond. The shortage of tires around the nation resulted from industry's over-reaction to an oversupply in the early 1980s. A number of plants closed since then, he explained. Most of the tires come from Kelly Springfield of Georgia and General Tire of Tennessee. Farm Bureau's product service has a slogan about its premium quality products: "You might buy cheaper, but you won't buy better." Also, it has introduced several product lines for the consumer who doesn't want to buy the very best but wants a good product for a lower price. For instance, he may not need a battery with a longer life than that of the old truck he's temporarily using around the farm. The service is one of few in the industry to still offer ...

September, 1988 FARM BUREAU VIRGINIA You will see this logo cropping up everywhere. New symbol, song unveiled RICHMOND — After more than 30 years with the green diamond serving as a symbol of the organization, the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has a new logo. The new attractive insignia, which will be officially introduced during the 1988 Annual Convention, should emit more of an identity for the organization, according to VFBF president Robert Delano. The large, maroon block with white letters will be easily recognizable and "should leave no questions unanswered as to who we are," Delano added. In addition, as many as 10 Farm Bureaus in southern states have adopted the same logo, with only the state name different in each. "It's simple, it's straightforward and it's easy to read," Delano said. The logo was the brainchild of Ken Juneau & Associates Inc. The Alexandria, La. advertising and public relations agency was hired by Southern Farm Bureau Life Insurance Co., VFB...

14 Coyote hunt tool approved By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer RICHMOND—The board of directors of the Virginia Game and Inland Fisheries Department has approved a two-year trial period for the use of electronic coyote calls by hunters. "It's not an imitation. The call is actually a recording of a young or wounded rabbit or other small animal that the coyote would normally be hunting for, and thus is very effective," said Department Director James Remington. Use of electronic calls will only be allowed on private property with the written permission of the landowner. Remington said it was primarily for the use of hunters trying to destroy coyotes preying on sheep herds, and the department will be watching closely to see whether the use of the calls is abused.

Delano, president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, has resigned to accept a key position with the George Bush presidential campaign. The 64-year-old farmer resigned Sept. 15 after being appointed by the vice president as national honorary chairman and senior advisor of the Rural USA/ Bush '88 campaign. VFBF Vice President C. Wayne Ashworth, a Pittsylvania County tobacco grower and member of the VFBF board of directors, will act as president and administrator until an election during the Annual Convention this fall. At that time, either Ashworth, or at least one of three other board members seeking the position, S. Spottswood Taliaferro Jr. of Essex County, Archie Bailey of Washington County or J.M.

October, 1988 Lawmakers' aides get rural education on tour By GREG HICKS VFBF Director of Communications There is more to Farm Bureau's lobbying effort than attending the Virginia General Assembly each session and visiting Capitol Hill in Washington. It is an ongoing effort that works to educate key lawmakers on agriculture, to make them more aware of the concerns of farmers and rural families That effort brought together 10 Congressional Aides to the Shenandoah Valley recently for a couple informative days down on the farm. The two-day tour Aug. 22-23, sponsored by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Public Affairs Department, was designed to provide more insight into the state's largest industry. The tour wound from Winchester through Frederick, Shenandoah and Rockingham counties and into Harrisonburg, where the Capitol Hill workers were introduced not only to farmers, but to practical information as well.

He has also served on the AFBF rural health committee. "I'd like to see more involvement in our present programs rather than considering new programs at this time because of the cost factor," said Ashworth. He added that he looks forward to the 1988 Annual Convention in Richmond Nov. 28 through Dec. 1. He expects the membership to "come up with some good policies to work on for 1989." The Pittsylvania County native also operates a wholesale flower business. Ashworth has also been active outside Farm Bureau.
