March 1993 Young fanners team how to sell Farm Bureau at annual conference By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Ecftor ARLINGTON —What does a stuffed parrot with UV-protected fur have in common with the Viiginia Farm Bureau Young Farmers program? Not much, but the way a member of the Young Farmers sells either of them is the same. That was what more than 100 young farmers from across the state learned during "The Cookie Kid" on Saturday morning at this year's Young Farmer Leadership Conference here Jan. 29-31- Leonard Slade, American Farm Bureau Federation area field services director, conducted the workshop, which is based on a Girl Scout video about selling cookies. Slade said that the same principles used in the video should be applied when selling Farm Bureau and its programs. "The whole purpose is to learn how to sell your county's Young Farmer program," Slade told the participants. In the video, the Girl Scouts' top cookie seller tells how she manages to sell thousands of boxes of ...

March 1993 ?,■ —h J ■V ■ Dean Kleckner addresses farmers. (Photo by Kattiy Dixon) Insurance companies use catastrophe teams after natural disasters Q. What special efforts do insurance companies make to meet the needs of customers after a hurricane, tornado or other catastrophe? A# All large insurance companies, including the Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company, have catastrophe teams that are on call and can quickly respond should a disaster occur anywhere in the country. Depending upon the extent of damage, anywhere from a few to hundreds of insurance company employees —claims adjusters, communications experts, support staff—are moved into the affected area. With them comes everything needed, even pencils and paper clips, to set up temporary offices and begin the process of paying claims. Office space and hotel rooms are rented and, if necessary, mobile offices in the form of recreational vehicles are moved in, as are cellular telephones and satellite dishes to aid commu...

March 1993 Pansies can bloom throughout the year For 1993, the National Garden Bureau picked one of my favorite spring flowers, the pansy, as its Plant of the Year. My love of these flowers goes back to my childhood when the cheery "faces" of annual pansies and their perennial cousins, Johnny Jump-ups, greeted me each spring in my grandmother's garden. Since moving far south of my grandmother and observing gardens in many places, I no longer think of pansies strictly as spring flowers. At any time of the year, pansies will be in bloom outdoors somewhere in the country. In mild sections of the state, homeowners and landscapers often use them for fall, as well as spring, color. Although usually grown as annuals, pansies are short-lived perennials which can come back for several seasons in the right location. In cold areas they do not come back during the winter, but in temperate regions, such as the Virginia coast, well cared for plants persist, though they give their best show when y...

Vol 52, No. 3 Farm Bureau tallies up legislative victories By NORM HYDE VFBF Broadcast Editor RICHMOND — There will be lots of winning numbers when Virginia Farm Bureau Federation members total their legislative scorecards this year. The VFBFs biggest legislative victory was helping get $3.4 million for the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service. But the state's largest farm organization had other victories as well. It helped preserve the land-use taxation law, clarified the definition of companion animals, called for a study on reducing the ravaging deer herd and eliminated proposed water permit fees for farmers. Tobacco interests also fared well compared to recent sessions. A bill to expand public smoking restrictions and increase fines was withdrawn after being watered down, and seven bills that would have increased statewide or local cigarette taxes were also defeated or withdrawn. "Tm pleased that so many of our lawmakers agreed with farmers on important rural issues," commente...

2 Farm Bureau president says energy taxes would devastate Virginia fanners The economic vitality of Virginia's agricultural sector is being severely threatened by the Clinton administration's proposed energy and cigarette taxes. An energy tax will penalize farmers in all phases of production—from electricity usage to fuel costs. Similarly, a proposed tax hike on cigarettes will place severe economic strains on family tobacco farms across southside and southwest Virginia. Nationally, farmers stand to lose $1 billion per year on energy taxes alone. We applaud President Clinton's stated goal of deficit reduction, but Farm Bureau is disappointed that the plan relies on higher taxes rather than spending cuts to lower the deficit. Don't let commonly missed farm deductions slip through the tax cracks By NITA F. VOLLMER, CPA There are two commonly missed deductions on farm schedules that are either overlooked or forgotten. The first pertains to purchases of equipment, tractors, or any other...

April 1993 EPA-approved restrictions for atrazine may be detrimental to crop farmers By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor PARK RIDGE, IL.—New labeling restrictions for atrazine may prohibit crop farmers from doing their jobs effectively. But a representative of Ciba Plant Protection, a division of Ciba Geigy Corp., asserts that the changes will enable formers to continue using products that contain the herbicide. Atrazine, which is manufactured primarily by Ciba Geigy Corp., is used as an herbicide in corn and grain sorghum fields. And in response to ongoing concerns by the Environmental Protection Agency that atrazine has the potential for contaminating ground and surface water, Ciba Geigy worked with the EPA in devising label revisions for all agricultural products that contain atrazine. Even though those changes were approved last summer, this will be the first growing season during which they will be in effect. The new atrazine label prohibits formers from mixing, loading or a...

April 1993 Safety should become second nature to farmers when operating tractors (Continued from Page 1) was at the Capitol in Richmond lobbying for farmers, his twin brother and 40-year farming partner, Donald, was killed in a tractor accident. Donald Kite had been loading a bale of hay into the barn when the front axle on his tractor broke. The tractor flipped over onto him, allegedly killing him instantly. "It can sure mess up your life when something like this happens. And it can happen to anyone," Kite said. "It's something ni never get over in my lifetime." Now Raymond Kite is left wondering if he could have done anything to prevent the accident. "I guess Fll always wonder," he said. And that's why it's so important for other farmers to practice sound farm safety. Kite said he and his brother were always careful when working on their 250-acre farm in Culpeper County, but he doesn't think anything could have been done to prevent the axle from breaking the day his brother was ki...

6 VFBMIC expects 10-percent growth in '93 DES MOINES, lOWA—Despite "staggering losses" from unprecedented catastrophes in 1992, American property and casualty insurers are healthy financially. In fact, those insurers should see a 6.5 percent premium growth in 1993, according to Lowell Beck, president of the National Association of Independent Insurers. Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Companies expect to do even better than that. "We set our sights on growing a minimum of 10 percent," said C.E. "Chuck" Clement, executive vice president of VFBMIC. "We typically outperform the industry average." Besides, Clement added, the Virginia insurance industry wasn't directly affected by the national disasters that caused great losses for other insurance companies. "The catastrophes in Florida and ... the Midwest indirectly affected Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Companies through the re-insurance fund, but didn't have a direct effect." The 1992 losses that affected some U.S. insura...

8 Advisors leam to improve their jobs through humorous skits and testimonials By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor WILLIAMSBURG —Humor and common sense were used to teach Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company salesmen how to improve their performance during the 1993 annual sales conference March 4 and 5. Through a series of workshops—from skits to personal testimonials—the sales force was given information to help them do their jobs better. "Quality is something Farm Bureau was founded on," said Romy Merchant, associate director of VFB's Market Research and Development Department, "and we want to keep that tradition going." To help the salesmen do that, he and Donnie Knowlson, associate director of sales, came up with six skits that gave examples of poor versus good quality customer service. Agency Manager George Orton played a county secretary in the first skit, Advisor Joe Crain was the customer and Agency Manager Jack Ingle played an insurance agent. In the first scene,...

April 1993 From Tinker toys to brainstorming, VFB women learn to challenge themselves By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor LYNCHBURG —Building a Tinker toy model of a county Farm Bureau proved to women attending the 1993 Statewide Women's Conference here March 7-9 that they can use insignificant resources to make significant accomplishments. And it's those accomplishments that are so vital to the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, according to President C. Wayne Ashworth. "You are the shakers and movers of this organization," Ashworth told more than 150 women attending the conference. "Your goals for 1993 will strengthen not only the women's program, but the entire organization as well." He called the 1993 Women's Program of Work—which identifies Agriculture in the Classroom, consumer education, animal welfare and legislation as the Women's priorities—impressive. "Ladies, you have focused on the issues that will most affect farmers this year," Ashworth said. But the women's committe...
