June, 1947 Poultry Advisory Group Presents Recommendations The Poultry Advisory Committee has released a report containing its recommendations to the National Advisory Committee and the United States Department of Agriculture concerning the need for research on the production and marketing of poultry and eggs under the Research and Marketing Act of 1946. The recommendations represent the collective thinking of the poultry committee which met in Washington May 6 and 7 to discuss all phases of research needed in the poultry industry. With respect to production the committee's report emphasizes three fields of poultry research which should receive first consideration : (1) broaden the scope of study on the efficiency and economy of selecting breeding stock to improve egg production and quality, viability, and carcass quality; (2) as feed comprises more than half the cost of poultry production further research is needed on the nutritive requirements of poultry; and (3) protein being the...

6 "The Soil Feeds the Nation 99 This is a series of four special broadcasts on the National Soil Fertiltiy Bill now pending in Congress. These programs were prepared by the American Farm Bureau Federation and were sponsored for the information of Virginia farmers in broadcasts in May and June by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. We published them in order that those who did not hear them over stations fVRNL, JVSVA and IVSVS may now read them. PROGRAM NUMBER 1 Singer: It's got to be there That stuff called phosphate It's got to be there That stuff called potash It's got to be there Phosphate and Potash and Lime. Farmer: Shut it off! I hate those silly jingles. Baker: Issat so? Well—l guess lots of people do. Farmer: There ought to be a law. Always trying to sell you soap, or chewing gum or something like that.

June, 1947 "The Soil Feeds The Nation" (Continued from page 6) Baker: Well, you kinda answered that question yourself. Any others? Farmer: Well, yes. This government fertilizer plan—to make phosphate fertilizer. - Puts the government in competition with the regular fertilizer business. Baker: Well, let's talk about that for a minute. The government would sell the plant in five years. If we're going to have fertilizer test demonstrations on a few thousand or a few hundred thousand farms, it's going to take some phosphate fertilizer to do it, isn't it? Farmer: Yeh, reckon it is. Baker: Triple superphosphate—about 48 per cent plant food. Tried to buy any of that lately? Farmer: Huh! Don't be funny. You can't get it, except maybe from a few co-ops. Baker: That's what the farmer who wanted to be test demonstrators would be up against if they tried to test high analysis phosphate fertilizer. They couldn't get it, because there's so little being made. But let the test demonstration program...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 6, No. 7 VFBF Again Opposes Rail Hike On Fertilizer Peanut Co-op Sponsors 3 Meetings A series of three meetings, arranged by the Peanut Cleaning Cooperative for peanut growers, was held at Courtland July 16 and at Emporia and Stony Creek on July 17. Growers interested in Cooperative marketing of their peanuts turned out to hear outstanding cooperative speakers and local growers interested in this movement. Roland N. Benjamine, Executive Secretary of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau Cooperative Association, made an address on "Farmers Cooperatives." He has been the directing head of a group of local cooperatives, federated together in one group for the past 16 years and none has shown a loss during their entire existence. This is a record of which any group would be justly proud. Mr. Benjamine showed how growers could solve their problems through their cooperatives, that no individual farmer could solve for himself. He also clearly showed that...

Hart Women Back Program Of Health Work In State Spokesmen for two large groups of Virginia farm women told the Hagood Committee of the Virginia Advisory Legislative Council in Richmond that the State should adopt an expanding program of hospitalization and medical care to reach into every section of the Commonwealth. Mrs. Charles N. DeShazo, secretary and health chairman of the Associated Women of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, which she said had a membership of more than 24,000 farm families, said the potential benefits and existing needs are such as to justify the admittedly "large expenditure" the efforts would entail. Earlier, Dr. W. T. Sanger, president of the Medical College of Virginia, had estimated -it might cost some $35,000,000 over a fiveyear period to bring medical care to ad...

+ Patrick FB Is Latest To Organize Seeing the fight ahead to maintain farm prices at a decent level with industry and labor, Patrick farmers decided in April to set up a permanent county Farm Bureau organization in order that they might have a voice in helping make and shape the future policy of agriculture. Agreeing with farm leaders' throughout the country that the adopted program for agriculture for the next two or three years will determine the future welfare of farmers for years to come, the Patrick farmers desire to contribute their proportionate share to a program for stabilizing agricultural prices, and all farmers were invited to attend a second meeting on June 5. At the organization meeting the following officers were elected: Carl Avers, President; M. A. Craddock, Vice-President; Reed Gunt er, temporary SecretaryTreasurer. Directors: Guy Haley, Paul Waller, W. P. Fulton, B. W. Grogan, Aaron Nester, M. O. Slate, N. G. Brammer, P. A. DeHart, Joel Williams and Hugh Terry. O'...

July, 1947 The Agricultural Budget s The House Appropriations Committee used some noble language in reporting the Agriculture Department's 1948 budget. "As we give thought to such a problem as soil conservation and to the saving of the surface' of our land from the influences of erosion, it said, "we also have the responsibility of pursuing those policies that will prevent the erosion of that rugged individual character which has made the American farmer the greatest producer of agricultural commodities in any time or generation in the world's history." It is quite true that the farmer's individualism may have been eroded by some aspects of the parity program. There is just criticism to be made of that program, as this newspaper has frequently pointed out. But it is hard to see how individualism can be restored or improved by the drastic slashes the committee has recommended in funds which are actually spent for conservation. The Soil Conservation Service recently estimated that a m...

6 Fertilizer (Continued from page 1) em Railway, and J. G. Middleton, of the Atlantic Coast Line Railway, that no special consideration in rates for farmers is warranted at this time when farm prices are high. Mr. Adcock said that all Southern States except Tennessee and Alabama have allowed the increases. Need Consideration • J. L. Maxton, agricultural economist for the Virginia Extension Service, told the commission that the State's farmers do need special consideration. Mr. Maxton said the farmers are gripped by inflationary trends, that farm labor costs are nearly four times the 1910-1914 base period, and that frequent need is felt for Federal support price actions. In only 10 years since 1910, he added, have farmers been able to sell their produce at a favorable ratio, in comparison with the prices they have had to pay for articles necessary to them. "The results from the use of proper amounts of fertilizer," he - said, "are such that the carriers should do everything in their ...

July, 1947 Hubbard (Continued from page 6) transportation of most commodities, coal is a good example, are increased, the added cost is passed on to the consumer and may be tairly evenly distributed among all members* of society, which procedure lessens considerably the burden of such increased costs on any one group. Farmer Must Pay Such is not the case with fertilizer, however. It is the farmer, the lowest paid of any major group, who must pay every dime of the increased cost. He cannot pass such increased costs on to the consumer because he sells on a buyer's market and takes what the market offers —he does not determine the price of what he sells or the price of what he buys. In the economic scheme of things the farmer occupies a most unfortunate and unenviable position. At the present instant some temporary gain would undoubtedly be realized by the railroads from the requested increase in freight rates for the very simple reason that fertilizer consumption is now at an all time...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 6, No. 8 President O'Neal Defends Support Program Southwest Discusses Store Work Counties of Southwest Virginia developing economic services for Farm Bureau members held their district meeting at the Maple Shade Inn, Pulaski, on July 23, where a special luncheon was served the 51 delegates attending from the counties of Giles,- Montgomery, Pulaski, Wythe, Bland, and Carroll. The morning program was devoted to a conference of managers of the five stores serving the area, and the county presidents interested in improving such services to farmers.

4 Maxton Talks At Meeting In Patrick Select a needed project at the county level and see that it serves the farmers well through your organization, was the advice Dr. J. L. Maxton gave the Patrick County Farm Bureau membership at its first meeting on June 5, after setting up the permanent organization in April. To assist the Patrick group in making this determination, Dr. Maxton gave them facts and figures and important data on agriculture for Patrick County which required some little time to prepare and assemble such information. A committee headed by W. P, Fulton, and assisted by the county agent and Vocational agricultural teachers, was selected to make a study of county projects best needed to serve the farmers and to report on same at next meeting. T. E. Starnes, VFBF Director of Organization, spoke on the need for membership, how to obtain it and how to use it in order to get proper consideration for agriculture. At the close of the meeting the group voted unanimously for the ...

(3) The fertilizer industry claims that the plant-food content of commercial fertilizers has steadily increased. Yes, it has. But the point is this: It has increased at an extremely slow rate and it has failed to increase to anywhere near the point at which it can be and should be. U. S. Dept. o? Agriculture figures show that the average plant-food content of all commercial fertilizers consumed 'in- the United ' States (including both mixed fertilizers and "straight goods") in 1945 was 20.15 percent and that the average in 1930, 16 years earlier, was 18.08 percent. There has not been much improvement there. Department of Agriculture figures also show that the average plant-food content of mixed fertilizers consumed in the United States has increased from 13.5 percent in 1880 to 21.65 percent in 1945. That is an average increase of 12 one-hundredths of one percentage po...

August, 1947 Kirkpatrick ( Continued from page 5) stimulated the sales of commercial fertilizer. The record is equally clear that the grant of free fertilizer to testdemonstration farms representative of the community as to soils, size, tenure, and type of farm, selected by their neighbors to be community laboratories and school rooms, is necessary to accomplish the objectives of the program and by no means represents an unwarranted gift. The test-demonstration farms are a. testing new fertilizer materials and new methods of their use in relation to rotation systems, crops, methods of tillage, new machinery, equipment, and other practices, and b. educating farmers in the value, effect, and best methods of fertilizer use, and in this connection the free fertilizer serves as an incentive to a small degree offsetting the cost and risks which the farmer himself undertakes when he is selected to be a test-demonstrator. (10) The fertilizer industry asserts that more government manufacture...
