6 AFBF Head Says Family Farm Now Holds Secure Place In U. S. Economic Picture The family farm is more securely a part of our economy now than ever before, Allan B. Kline, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, declared recently. "Farms are bigger, more more highly mechanized, and more productive," he said, but the overwhelming proportion of farm land is owned by individual farmers. The AFBF president cited U. S. Department of Agriculture figures showing that corporations, partnerships and public agencies together account for ownership of only 13 per cent of all the nation's farm land. "The remaining 87 per cent," Mr. Kline pointed out, "is held by individuals, and today most of these farmers and their families are more secure in the possession of their farms than they have been at any time in their memory, because they have used favorable farm prices during the last few years to build a sound financial position." More Efficiency The trend to larger farms, Mr. Kline emphas...

Virginia Farmers Are Entitled to Parity Vol. 8, No. 2 Directors Back AFBF Stand On Flexible Supports OUR COMMONWEALTH By Robert A. Wilson The appearance of this column in the Virginia Farm Bureau News marks the inauguration of an effort to discuss with our readers the affairs of the Virginia State Government. There are three great spheres of Government in which each conscientious citizen should interest himself. First, of course, is his own local government in his county. Second in his state go vernment. And third is the Federal government. Obviously, it is impractical for us to discuss in The N e w s many items which are of interest to you in your own locality since The News is circulated to readers in all of the one hundred counties of our State. However, in certain instances we hope that we can bring items of particular interest concerning government on the county and town level to your attention. In the field of federal government we try to keep you well informed particularly in...

March, 1949 WHAT'S & WHY'S OF WOMEN It has been a long time since there has been an opportunity for me to talk things over with you. I have missed it and I hope some of you have also. As you know we have attended a National Convention in Atlantic City. There I was honored by being made the Secretary of the Associated Women of the American Farm Bureau. Certain editors of news papers in Virginia were kind enough to give this great publicity and to make it appear that I had become quite something. I feel bound to disillusion you. I am not such an important officer. The Secretary has comparatively little work to do beyond the matter of attending all meetings of the American AW and keeping all records therefor. She writes whatever letters she is assigned, but our beloved Mrs. Sewell does the biggest part of the letter writing. If and when the secretary is called on to assist in any matter, ranging from attending a meeting of convention in another state to appearing in Washing...

4 AFBF Opposes Price Control On Livestock "I cannot visualize anything that would be much worse at the moment than to announce the necessity of price controls on livestock," said AFBF's Roger Fleming in Washington at a hearing called by the Joint Committee on the Economic Report. He said further: "Price levels reflect basic relationships between money in circulation and services available for purchase. Selective price controls are in fact dangerous. They deceive the people and create a false sense of security." Senator O'Mahonev, chairman of the Committee, had called t;he hearing to find out what representatives of labor, industry, and agriculture think of the provisions of the Spence Bill (H. R. 2756) which spells out the Administration's recommendations for stabilizing the national economy and controlling inflation. Mr. Fleming's statement made the Farm Bureau position crystal clear. He explained that any suggestion that ceiling prices might be imposed on livestock would inevitabl...

April, 1949 Two Hybrids Show Promise For Silage Two corn hybrid varieties —one of them recommended for the first time this year—show promise of becoming leaders in corn-for-silage in eastern Virginia, says Dr. C. F. Genter, agronomist for the Agricultural Experiment Station. The newly recommended Dixie 17 has been a consistent top grain yielder in two-year tests in eastern Virginia. It matures too late, however, for most parts of the State and is not recommended for grain except in a limited area in the southeast, Genter said. The hybrid's relatively small stalk, leafiness, and high total yield of both grain and forage make it a good variety for silage in the east. Researchers believe Dixie 17 may have a definite value as a late crop for hogging-off in Virginia's commercial hog-producing area around Holland. N. C. 1032, an all-yellow, latematuring variety also is becoming popular for use as silage in the eastern areas of the State, Genter says. The variety, through four years' testi...

8 Cover Crop Valuable As Source of Nitrogen A good legume cover crop, plowed under about 20 days before planting corn, seems to be as valuable in supplying nitrogen as 100 pounds of commercial nitrogen, say researchers at Virginia Experiment Station. In addition to supplying nitrogen, a good legume crop furnishes organic matter so badly needed in soils of eastern Virginia, they add. H. M. Camper, Jr., assistant agronomist at the Eastern Virginia Field Station at Williamsburg, reporting on the progress of a revised cover crop project, says the addition of nitrogen to plots where legumes had been planted, had no appreciable effect on resultant corn yields. On five plots where crimson clover, seeded in September at the rate of 20 pounds per acre, was turned under 15 to 25 days before corn planting time, the average corn yield was 118.3 bushels per acre. On plots which received the crimson clover treatment, plus 100 pounds of commercial nitrogen, the corn yield was about equal. Fifty po...
