flnj Vol. 48, No. 12 Convention 1989 Helms, Ashworth urge farmers to take a stand By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor RICHMOND—U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms of North Carolina urged farmers at the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Annual Convention Nov. 27 to closely watch issues and speak out against "politicians who seem determined to bring American agriculture to its knees." "The forces are out there to destroy not only the (tobacco) program but the sustenance of so many farmers in Virginia, North Carolina and 20 other states," he said. The self-proclaimed "hard-core conservative" said Brazil and other tobacco producing countries would be delighted to have the overseas tobacco sales made by the U.S. Helms predicted battles in Congress over the 1990 Farm Bill and a likely food safety provision, as well as morality issues. "We ought to retrace our steps, study history and ask ourselves how America became such a great place in such a short time... One thread that ought to be kept in mind is t...

2 Legislative agenda reflects many needs in Virginia Recently, I heard a Virginia Ifech professor explain that "agriculture is much more than farming." At first, I didn't fully understand, but after applying that phrase to our 1990 General Assembly agenda, I see clearly what that wise old prof meant. Farm Bureau represents not only farming, but all of agriculture—and all of rural Virginia. Agriculture includes farming, biotechnology, marketing, processing, research, education and much more. Our 1990 General Assembly agenda deals with each of these areas. Well take a stand on such issues as local education, animal welfare, litter control, the environment, lottery monies and other funding for rural Virginia and state agencies as well as preserving agricultural land. Truly, agriculture is changing. We're seeing it every year. Here is a rundown of our priority measures for the 1990 General Assembly. Remember, though, that new bills always surface during the assembly and this year will b...

December 1989/ January 1990 Farm law (Continued from Page 2) If a landowner actually knows of a condition on his property that probably will result in injury to the recreational user if the user is not warned, or other precautions are taken, then the landowner is well advised to avoid the harm or injury by giving the warning or repairing the hazardous condition. There is no duty to warn of conditions that are obvious to the recreational user exercising reasonable care In most instances, a cliff would be considered an open and obvious hazard, with no attendant duty to warn of its presence. There is, however, a duty to warn of conditions that will likely cause injury to a recreational user, but are at the same time not open and obvious. Frankly, it is difficult to think of examples or this type of condition that might be encountered by a recreational user. The recreational use statute does not limit the liability of a landowner if that landowner receives a fee for giving the recreatio...

December 1989/ January 1990 Bad pruning leaves trees vulnerable and ugly Halloween is long since past, but I'm still seeing witch's brooms everywhere I drive. I mean the kind up in trees. Now that all the deciduous trees but oaks have given up their leaves, pruning erros of seasons past are painfully obvious. Witch's brooms are but one example. They are large branches or trunks which were lopped off without care, and have since sprouted a jungle of spindly growth, resembling upside-down brooms. Not a pretty sight, at least to my eyes. Other offenders include large stubs left behind after pruning. These are great for wildlife because they rot into hollow snags in a few years, providing homes for squirrels, birds and other critters. But if you aren't planning a wildlife sanctuary, don't leave them behind when you prune That same rot that benefits the wildlings harms the tree Watersprouts show up in great numbers on mispruned trees. These slender branches shoot straight up from branche...

December 1989/ January 1990 On board: Taliaferro sees Farm Bureau growing By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor CARET—Many have called the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation the voice of Virginia agriculture, but if you ask Board Member S. Spottswood Thliaferro Jr., it's also the eyeswatching out and looking ahead. "We've got to be ever watchful to assure government doesn't impose simple solutions on complex problems—quick fixes that haven't worked," says the 43-year-old Essex County grain grower. An example is the waterfront buffer zone the Chesapeake Bay Local Assistance Board originally set for farmland; a 100-foot buffer was "unworkable," he says. "But through Farm Bureau's diligent efforts, we were able to fashion a common sense approach that will be less burdensome—the 25-foot buffer rule now in place in bay protection areas. Taliaferro once read somewhere and adopted the philosophy that an organization without a vision is destined to decline As he sees it, Farm Bureau insurance is ...

8 Augusta named superior county Augusta County Farm Bureau received the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Superior County award during VFBF s 1989 Annual Convention Nov. 28. Charles Wonderly, president of the county organization, accepted a plaque during an awards program. The VFBF's recognition and awards program, which began in 1982, measures the activities and involvement of county Farm Bureaus and rewards them for their successes and outstanding program achievements during the past year. These achievements naturally involve leaders and members participating in programs that help meet the needs of farmers. Augusta County Farm Bureau earned the highest total of points awarded—l,7ol out of a possible 2,ooo—from Nov. 1,1988 through Oct. 31. The eight categories judged are membership, structure and procedures, public affairs, communications, women's activities, young farmer activities, commodity activities and economic services. The superior county award, because it represents the mo...

December 1989/ January 1990 How can you choose the r By CHARLES E. McCABE Special to Farm Bureau News Why not do it yourself? If you enjoy the challenge of tackling Form 1040 and have ample time to study the tax laws, plus the ability to comprehend them, by all means, you should save money and prepare your own tax return. But if you're like the majority of American taxpayers, the "do it yourself" route could be a costly mistake Even if you can find time to muddle through the tax laws, you 're not likely to learn everything you need to know to minimize your tax bill. Chances are you 11 spend many frustrating hours and still wind up paying more than your fair share. Given the complexity of our income tax laws and the ever-increasing demands on our time, becoming a once-a-year-tax expert just isn't practical. What factors should you consider?

12 Most Virginia conservation plans complete By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer STAUNTON—More than 34,000 plans to reduce erosion on highly erodible cropland have been completed on Virginia farms, but federal conservation officials won't be able to meet a deadline for creating about another 4,000. "That's 4,000 farmers scattered across the state of Virginia that for one reason or another still do not have plans," said George Norris, state director of the USDA's Soil Conservation Service. The conservation compliance directive of the 1985 Farm Bill ordered all farmers receiving farm program benefits to have an erosion plan drawn up by Dec. 31. The plans must be put into action by 1995. Norris, speaking to Virginia Farm Bureau Federation county leaders Nov. 1, said his office already has reached its official USDA goal. But since that goal was set in 1987, a number of farmers have bought land, or realized they use federal farm subsidies, and need plans drawn up for them. Norris said brand-n...

December 1989/ January 1990 Apple country Reporters learn about the industry By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer WOODSTOCK—More than a dozen newspaper and television reporters from around the state toured the northern Shenandoah Valley Oct. 18, learning about Virginia's apple industry and how recent food safety scares have hurt it. "Especially when you're a television reporter, it's hard to know that much about a whole lot of things. Alar just hit us out of the blue, so I think it's always helpful to be able to come out here and hear the other side," said Joel Rubin, reporter for WAVYTV in Norfolk. Reporters were also told how fruit growers need more tools if integrated pest management techniques are going to work. Horticulturist John Crumpacker said he needs very specific pesticides in order to target chemical applications for the least impact on other insects, but those pesticides are going off the market and not being replaced. "It's very expensive, costs millions of dollars, to produ...

Farm Bureau Vol. 49, No. 2 Bush chides Congress during AFBF meeting By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor ORLANDO—President Bush, in his first major address of the 90s and this congressional election year, told about 8,000 members of the American Farm Bureau Federation, Jan. 8, it is time for Congress to tend to unfinished business like his proposed capital-gains tax cut. Speaking at the 71 st annual AFBF convention, Bush predicted cutting the tax on capital gains, including the sale of farmland, would "help keep American agriculture dymanic and prosperous." "I'm sick and tired of the demagogues who call this tax cut for the rich. It means jobs, it means savings, and it is good for all Americans," he said, shaking a fist. This speech set the tone for more to come before the November election of 34 of the 100 Senate seats and all 435 House seats.

2 Organic standards won't mean chemical use unsafe As a leading farm organization, we sometimes find our members on both sides of a controversial debate concerning food policy. Such is the case with the debate over an organic certification proposal in Virginia Currently, there is no state approved certification program for organically-grown fruits and vegetables, although the Virginia Association of Biological Farmers performs its own certification as a third party. Based on recent meetings, it appears that the 1990 General Assembly will hear a state proposal that suggests a private, third party conduct the certification duties. And the private certifiers will be regulated by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Farm Bureau agrees that some standards are warranted to protect organically grown foods from fraud. Obviously, with so much consumer concern over pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, plus the increasing demand for chemical-free food, there is certai...

February 1990 Field Services directors are eyes, ears By LINDY SPERRY Special to Farm Bureau News Virginia Farm Bureau Federation said good-bye to Northern District Field Services Director Ernest "Jake" Garber, who retired after his 32 years of faithful service Mike Clark of Stafford County took the position Jan. 1. Garber started in Field Services in 1957 when there were only two field districts. He served about half the state and is the only field man many Northern Virginia members have known. The two districts have grown to seven, with Garber's and other field men's aid in organizing and expanding county Farm Bureaus as well as developing special services. Garber initiated the Grain Marketing program, a non-profit service (now under Commodity Activities), which promotes better methods for transportation of grains, finds the best prices for grains and keeps farmers updated on trends in the market. Clark, who filled Garber's post, is not new to Farm Bureau or Field Services. He cam...

4 New chairman expects good year, decade Happy New Year! I am Steve Wolfe. My wife, Andrea, and I are serving as state Young Farmers' chairmen. We also represent the Southwest District on the state Young Farmers' Committee. We have a 2-year-old daughter, Emma, and live in Washington County, where we are members and Sunday School teachers at St. John's Lutheran Church. I am in partnership with my father, Robert, and brother, Dan, on a 240 Holstein cow dairy farm. We raise all our forages used in the operation, which are corn, alfalfa, rye and barley. In an average production year, some ear corn is also available to help cut grain cost. Four acres of burley tobacco also have proven to be a very profitable commodity to our farm. Andrea, along with being a full-time wife and mother, is a part-time secretary and part-time student, striving for a degree in elementary education. Being chosen to be Young Farmers' chairman is a great honor for me. With the support the Virginia Farm Bureau Fe...
