While unpopular with some farm groups, the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation supports the move. "How can a farmer compete with a man where credit problems don't make any difference?" asked VFBF President Wayne Ashworth. "I know it will be hard on some farmers facing repayment or foreclosure, but I think it's fair to ask a farmer to repay his just debt." Some 83,000 delinquency notices were mailed nationwide, representing $8.8 billion in unpaid debt.

SPRINGSTON VFBF News Editor RICHMOND —Since the General Assembly convened Jan. 11, the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's three lobbyists have been boldly plowing for legislation that reflects the needs of VFBF's farmer members and affects all Virginians. But the lobbyists began sharpening the plow in that mission in December, when they held meetings across the state for members and legislators to discuss the issues. Many legislators attending those 16 senatorial district meetings promised their support on several concerns and said they found the exchange of ideas in...

2 Membership growth will mean stronger VFBF Membership. It's the lifeblood of a voluntary organization like the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. It's the heart and soul. That's the reason for the organization's existence. And that's why our 1989 theme is "membership growth." Farm Bureau has grown tremendously since those early days before the Great Depression and World War II when a small group of Rockingham County farmers saw a need for such an organization. Since then, Farm Bureau has grown to more than 90,000 family members and always has been there for the farmer and the rural family. But while membership is the essential ingredient in Farm Bureau, it is so easily taken for granted. With all our other duties, it's sometimes hard to remember that we exist solely from our membership base. That's why we are focusing on growth in 1989. We are developing a statewide membership drive that will include every type of county Farm Bureau employee and volunteer leader as well as VFBF staff...

4 Twyfords give but say they receive more Editor's note: Membership in Action is a new feature to the Farm Bureau News. It will include articles on members and how they have helped and been involved in their communities or how membership has helped them. This month's feature on Farm Bureau members Philip and Sara Twyford is reprinted with permission from the Eastern Shore News. By NANCY NAMOSKI Special to VFBF News ACCOMAC—PhiIip Twyford, secre-tary-treasurer of the Accomack County Farm Bureau for 46 years, is concerned that few young people become farmers. "It worries me that the average age of farmers on the Shore is over 60 years," Twyford commented. Young people generally do not enter farming unless they inherit a farm or marry into a farming family, Twyford added. "The main reason is the risk is so great." Farming requires an investment of at least $250,000, he noted, with the cost of equipment. A combine ranges from $100,000 to $125,000 and a tractor, from $20,000 to $60,000. ...

February, 1989 Coxes named top dairymen STANARDSVILLE—Greene County Farm Bureau members David and Linda Cox were named the 1988 Outstanding Young Dairymen for Dairymen Inc. during the cooperatives annual meeting. The Stanardsville couple represented Dairymen's Old Dominion Division and competed with young dairymen from six other divisions throughout the southeast for the dairy title. "It's a great honor for both of us," said Cox. As a young leader in the South's largest dairy cooperative, Cox said one of his greatest concerns is encouraging other young people to get into farming. "I'm afraid the country is going to wake up one morning and see the grocery Small farmers need advocates Seven out of 10 of all the farms in the U.S. are small farms, bringing in less than $40,000 a year in sales, according to Howard "Bud" Kerr, director of USDA's Office of Small Scale Agriculture.

6 Young Farmers' chairman sees program climbing By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF News Editor PINEY RIVER—In 1969, Hurricane Camille ravaged Nelson County with a flood that destroyed all the seedling trees and shrubbery Saunders Orchard & Nursery grew on rich bottomland. The nursery's irrigation system was lost. And the fruit couldn't be reached for picking that year because the storm washed out a bridge. Camille even killed some of the Saunders family's cattle. But high on a hill, amid the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was hope. A few plants there had survived, growing in tin cans under the shade of tall pines and watered by five sprinklers. These plants were the beginning of what is now a sprawling 90-greenhouse operation on that hill. If anybody knows about making a new idea work, it's Thomas Newbill Saunders, the nursery manager, and his family. This year, Tom Saunders, 29, is state chairman of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Young Farmers' Committee. And he has some i...

February, 1989 Only Congress controls budget deficits The Congressional deficit I have grown tired of hearing about the "Reagan deficit," as if somehow, the President alone had been responsible for federal overspending. There was no "Carter deficit," no "Ford deficit" and no Reagan deficit. In every case, the President's budget proposal is only a recommendation to Congress. Only the Congress has the constitutional power to appropriate federal funds. As the Reagan administration fades into history and, without denying any president's influence, let's get it straight that federal budget deficits are primarily created, continued and controlled by the Congress. Year after fiscal budget year, Congress has spent far more money than has been proposed in any president's budget. The flimflam game In the 1980s Congress not only spent more than the President requested, but usually much more than recommended in its own budget resolutions. If Congress had actually limited spending to its own sta...

8 Make informed decisions about health care costs By JONATHAN SHOUSE Special to VFBF News Why does the cost of health care keep going up? Hospitals have a hand in it; so do doctors, the government, patients and insurance companies. During recent years the cost of health care has continued to inflate at roughly twice the rate of growth of the consumer price index. This is in spite of powerful regulatory measures and the most vigorous competition ever. Three of the key contributors to medical inflation are the general inflation trends, a unique flaw in the U.S. health care market and the driving force of technology. Gail R. Wilensky, vice president of the health research group Project Hope, concludes that roughly half the increase in medical costs comes from general inflation. That is because the health care industry is so labor intensive. The second area is unique to the medical economy. A fundamental flaw in the health care market is that consumers are insulated from the cost of tre...

February, 1989 Tobacco quota is expanded WASHINGTON—The USDA announced Dec. 15 it is expanding the amount of flue-cured tobacco farmers may grow nationwide by 18 percent over last year's production level. 'This is obviously welcome news to our tobacco farmers," said Wayne Ashworth, VFBF president, who grows flue-cured tobacco in Pittsylvania County. Ashworth said the quota increase was enough to reflect growing demand for American tobacco, but not so high growers could not adjust to the change next season. He suggested the change might even lead to some new Virginia farmers raising tobacco. Logging receipts come under fire WASHINGTON—The National Forest Service has released the first accounting of receipts from its much-criticized logging program. The Timber Sale Program Annual Report says sales in the George Washington and Jefferson national forests totaled nearly $1.2 million in fiscal year 1987; yet it cost more than $3.8 million to run. But Virginia park officials say the progra...

12 More ag ed urged BLACKSBURG — A panel of state educators has endorsed a national report calling for increased agriculture education. A Virginia Tech official on the panel said Virginia is half a step ahead of other states in agriculture curricula, including five new agricultural courses for high school students this year. John Hillison, agricultural education program area leader at Virginia Tech, was chairman of a panel of five Virginia educators who recently discussed a National Research Council committee report that said every American needs to know something about agriculture. "Beginning in kindergarten and continuing through 12th grade, all students should receive some systematic training in agriculture," says a National Research Council committee. The study, which the Committee on Agricultural Education in Secondary Schools conducted, said the average person needs to know about such agricultural matters as economics, food production, health, nutrition and stewardship of natu...
