14 Virginia Turkey Days Are Here Again HARRISONBURG-More than 200 people gathered recently as speakers from six states headlined the program for Virginia Turkey Days. Robert Nicholas, president of Nicholas Turkey Breeding Farms, Sonoma, Calif., discussed 'The Outlook for Turkey Production in the 19905." Nicholas identified key topic areas as what goes into the turkey, what competes with turkey (namely, other meats) and what's happening with turkey in general. The turkey executive noted that feed prices are very low compared to the trend lines of the 1970s and early 1980s. The price support programs in place at that time made grain too expensive for domestic or foreign users, subsidized foreign production and created an unsustainable burden on the taxpayers. Projecting, Nicholas said that the 1985 Farm Bill provided the income support transition period that led to the 1989 and 1993 Farm Bills, which put the government in a much more limited role. Everyone felt bad about the decline o...

Vol. 46, No. 3 Recruiting efforts successful HICHMOND- Recruiting efforts for the new agriculture technology program at Virginia Tech have proved successful. Before a meeting of the Agriculture Technology Committee, Gary Minish, associate dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and director of the two-year program, told the committee members that 128 students had applied for entry into the program. Out of those 76 offers had been made and 61 acceptances have been recorded, he said. Minish added that inquiries are still being received about the program and Virginia Tech will continue accepting applications for the program through May 31. A total of 7-8,000 catalogs will be sent to guidance counselors and extension agents promoting the ag tech program, he said. County F'arm Bureaus have aided in recruiting efforts, Minish told committee members, by serving as contact points for potential candidates. In addition, the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has offered $20,000 over...

2 Observation From A Tractor's Seat By Robert B. Delano VFBF President j/Kks / RICHMOND--When Farm Bureau was reorganized back in the 19505, we changed the direction of the organization. Farm Bureau aimed at developing three types of programs-legislative, service and educational programs that would be for the benefit of all members. While the legislative and service programs may be the best known programs, the educational programs need greater emphasis. I tend to think that at times we have forgotten the value of educational programs for farmers relative to issues that face those farmers. I think we have tended to leave the job up to someone else, such as the school systems and/or extension services in our various counties. I think that Farm Bureau leaders have the responsibility to provide leadership in educational fields. I look today and see the variety of issues where there is a lack of understanding and knowledge among farmers. For example, when the 1985 Farm Bill was developed...

April, 1987 For Your Protection By Edward Desch VFBMIC Exec. VP (Editor's note: This is the first in a series of articles that will appear each month from the desk of Edward Desch, the executive vice president and general manager of the Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. They will deed with insurance topics that our Farm Bureau members need to be aware of. As you read these articles, we encourage your comments, ideas and questions, so that we may serve you better.) RICHMOND--We often say that we buy insurance to protect against the unexpected. But insurance policies don't cover everything. Even policies that are called "All Risk" or "Blanket" include a number of exclusions and limitations. It took the heavy snow storms of this winter to remind us of that fact. A number of farm buildings all around the state collapsed or were damaged by the heavy buildup of snow. Some of our policyholders discovered that their policies did not provide coverage for collapse of farm buildings. T...

6 Arvon Grove herbs Peggy Alexander gives 'country comfort' from the 'good earth' By Penna Plymire FBN Editor BREMO BLUFF--It is a bleak Saturday afternoon when Peggy Alexander, owner and operator of Arvon Grove Herbs, is treating me to a cup of herb tea. The fragrant concoction is a new blend and I am a guinea pig. Sitting in the country kitchen of her Bremo Bluff farmhouse, Mrs. Alexander said she believes a good cup of tea wards off the cold. "I think herb teas are relaxing," she said. "I think they're even more relaxing served in a nice little cup so you can put your feet up in front of a fire and enjoy it." Mrs. Alexander passes me the sugar, chooses an artificial sweetener for herself and stirs it in. After a few sips of the fullbodied beverage, the interview begins. 'The main thrust of my operation is herb plants," she explains. "I started out selling wholesale. You can't make any money selling wholesale; they practically expect you to give the plants away." After shifting to...

April, 1987 Herbs turn into business for Bremo Bluff woman Continued from Page 6 rosehips, uva ursi and juniper berries. She pulls three bags of tea from a basket on the table and tosses them in front of me. Misty Morning, Afternoon Delight and Comfort and Cheer complete her line of teas. Her latest addition to her food products is the Good Earth Herb Seasoning Blends. Marketed in the fall of 1985, Mrs. Alexander's soup and stew, lamb and pasta sauce mixes sold out completely when they were introduced. After years of experimenting, Mrs. Alexander has discovered she can't do everything. "I think I am on the right track now," she said. "It's better to do a few things well than do a lot of things and not do as good a job on them." She leans back in her chair and takes another sip of tea before launching into the story of how she got started in herbs. Mrs. Alexander worked in Richmond for 18 years before she and her writerhusband, Bevin, decided to move back to his family's farm. Althou...

10 Change proposed for county FB presidents CHARLOTTESVILLE-Virginia Farm Bureau Federation President Robert B. Delano issued a challenge to change to county Farm Bureau officials at a recent President's Conference. Delano believes that Farm Bureau will continue to grow and increase its membership in 1987. He suggested a few steps to make this happen. First, a membership drive should be held in each county. Farm Bureau representatives from the headquarters in Richmond will help with the drive, he added. While the home office will assist in the project, the thrust of the drive must come from the counties, Delano said. County presidents and other prominent people in Farm Bureau must continue its efforts to make old and new members aware of what it has to offer. "We have good programs," he said. "That's one of the best kept secrets we have." The last thing Delano recommended was involvement in community activities. For instance, county presidents should make an effort to attend their c...

4 Salmonella is not a new concern BLACKSBURG-Salmonella food poisoning is a valid concern, but not a new concern, reports Virginia Tech food scientist Merle Pierson in response to recent publicity on the sickness, such as a CBS 60 Minutes segment. "Most of what we're hearing we've known for a long time," said Pierson, the head of Virginia Tech's food science and technology department. 'The elimination of salmonella is a primary research funding area for the poultry industry in particular," he added. Salmonella is a family of bacteria consisting of some 2,000 different types that can be often found in uncooked meat. Eating food contaminated with salmonella can cause diarrhea, vomiting and fever within six to 72 hours. In the elderly, infirm or infants, the illness can be the most serious. Livestock, poultry and humans are exposed to the bacteria in their environment. As control of sources of salmonella and food processing technology improved, the incidence of contamination has decrea...
