Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity V r OL. 7, No. 11 Convention Names Blalock As New VFBF President VFBF Takes Firm Stand On Sales Tax In formal resolution, the VFBF at its annual meeting in Richmond last month declared that the imposition of a State sales tax on raw materials used by farmers without a corresponding assessment of a similiar tax on raw materials used by other producers would be discriminatory. The full text of resolutions adopted by the federation at its Nov. 10-11 meeting will be printed next month. In addition to hitting at a discriminatory sales tax, the VFBF: Asked the State Highway Department to devote additional attention to the condition of Virginia's secondary roads; Recommended national legislation providing for price supports on farm products at 90 per cent of parity; Called for the more efficient administration of the public welfare program and removal from the rolls of all people who have no "proper justification" in asking for aid; Requested the Sta...

But when times change and man lacks food and fibre, then he will grasp at any "ism" that promises what he lacks. It is hard for man to defend his ideology when his body is starving, more especially when his family is starving. That is actually happening today in many Their Future is in the Balance Meat animals are what they eat! It takes a balanced ration to keep them healthy, growing and gaining. Successful livestock men know this. Hundreds of controlled feeding experiments prove it. Morrison, the great feeding authority, states—"Lambs on unbalanced rations require 46% more corn and 15% more hay for each 100 pounds of gain!" Balanced rations for hogs show spectacular results. Anyone can make a lot of fat and a little lean with cor? water. But that's the slow, expensive way. It takes a pile of corn to do it. But with corn balanced with proteins and...

December, 1948 Norfolk FB Reports Year Of Service The Norfolk County Farm Bureau reported "another successful year of service to the farmers of Norfolk County" in its annual report of activities for 1948. Basil \l. Wood is president. The Bureau played an important role in bringing about a potato marketing agreement for Virginia and North Carolina. FB officials termed the plan "very successful" in its first season of operation. Because of FB influence, according to the annual report, Norfolk is the only county in the State which owns heavy drainage equipment and does drainage work for farmers on a non-profit basis. The FB's committee on soil conservation was instrumental in this. During the year, under direction of the corn and soybean committee, corn and soybean demonstrations were conducted on 14 Norfolk County farms. The livestock committee of the Norfolk FB reported excellent results with the improved pastures now in the county. Because of an active membership committee, the FB r...

Endorsement of Robert Lee Humber's Address Believing that the incredible destructiveness of the atomic bomb would result in the reduction of civilized nations to areas of uninhabitable shambles in the event of full scale atomic warfare and believing also that the continuation of past and present relationships existing among the nations of the world will inevitably result in such warfare, we earnestly request and urge that the representatives of this Nation redouble their efforts toward the establishment of a World-wide Federation of Nations in accordance with the principles advocated by Robert Lee Humber, vice-president of United World Federalists, in his address before this convention. 11.

6 Walker Urges Strong FB Organization Three hundred Mecklenburg County Farm Bureau members, meeting in annual session, heard L. M. Walker, Jr., Commissioner of Agriculture, urge the building of a strong County Farm Bureau organization. "I know from experience and observation that the Farm Bureau has been a potent force in Washington in promoting equality for agriculture" Mr. Walker said. He further pointed out that a strong farm organization was going to be more necessary than ever in the next few months and years due to opposition in some quarters to various phases of the National Agricultural Program. Those present also heard M. A. Hubbard, secretary of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, enumerate some of the accomplishments of the State organization during the past twelve months. He reported the successful passage by the last General Assembly of a number of pieces of legislation which were Farm Bureau supported. However, the group was reminded that one of the measures most arde...

8 Cow Can Find Lost Needle In Haystack A cow can find the elusive needle in the haystack far too easily, says Dr. W. B. Bell, V.P.I, veterinarian. . The cow that swallows some foreign object such as a needle, a nail or a piece of wire along with a mouthful of hay may come down with "hardware disease," scientifically named traumatic gastritis. Dr. Bell says this ailment is fairly common among Virginia dairy cows and is the direct result of carelessness on the part of the farmer. Commercial firms often "magnetize" feed to guard against foreign objects, but, Bell says, this may not prove practical for the individual producer. The best control is to maintain clean barns, lots, driveways, and pastures, he said. After the foreign object penetrates the stomach wall of the cow, it may find its way to the liver, lungs, diaphragm or heart. As it passes through body tissues, it carries with it bacteria that result in abscesses, Bell said. Symptoms, he explained, are mu<*h the same f...

Agricultural Act of 1948 Wins AFBF Endorsement Major provisions of the Agricultural Act of 1948, providing a modernized parity formula and flexible price supports, were endorsed at the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual convention in Atlantic City. Voting delegates adopted a resolution asking the Board of Directors to study a recommendation that "the price support for any basic commodity beat 90 percent of parity whenever marketing quotas are in effect on any such commodity." This recommendation had been voted down in the resolutions committee by a substantial majority but the action to have the Board of Directors study the proposal was substituted by unaminous vote.
