The citizens of Moultrie, Ga., welcomed tens of thousands of visitors this month for the 36th annual Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition. Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black likened the event to an agricultural family reunion. “We’re gonna get to visit with each other, we’re going to get to do a lot of good things, but most of all, commerce is going to take place here in this largest industry in the state of Georgia, and we really look forward to what’s going to happen,” he said. And take place it did: a record 1,219 exhibitors were present, showcasing the latest in technology and celebrating the traditions of all facets of agriculture. A large portion of the commerce bore the Georgia Grown label, and Sunbelt visitors flocked to the main gate to get their hands on apparel and products associated with the program. They also received the second issue of Georgia Grown magazine, which was unveiled during a ceremony on Oct. 15. “In 1959, I was selected to go to the National FFA public speaking competition,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said. “My speech was entitled, ‘The Future of Farming.’ I had occasion to look at it some time back and I recognized that I was a pretty good prognosticator. I predicted that agriculture would continue to be one of the foremost leading industries in our country … Agriculture truly does remain the No. 1 industry in the state of Georgia, and [Black] has had a great influence on branding Georgia agriculture with Georgia Grown,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said. “I thank you all for having the foresight to promote these products and to promote our state and to promote its agriculture.” Equally important to Georgia Grown is the idea that Georgia agriculture is sustainable, Black said.

Legislators hear from researchers, farmers during two-day tour By Dallas Duncan Members of the Georgia General Assembly got a whirlwind tour of Georgia agriculture in October, traveling as part of the Georgia Agribusiness Council’s two-day legislative tour. “We have a new Senate ag chairman and we also have a lot of new members of the General Assembly, several new folks on the House [Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee],” said Bryan Tolar, GAC president. “We really wanted to give them a chance to showcase everything agriculture has in about as much time as we could possibly get.” More than 20 legislators attended the event and heard from a number of researchers, college representatives and producers. Tour stops included the University of Georgia-Tifton campus, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition, Funston Gin Company, Sanderson Farms’ hatchery and Langdale Forest Products’ sawmill. The visit to Sunbelt took legislators into the demonstration fields to view cotton, peanuts and other crops; to the barns to hear
from Georgia Cattlemen’s Association and Georgia Milk Producers; and to the main gate for remarks from Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black and Georgia Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall. “I see and hear from other states that their legislature and their governors … don’t pay them any attention and they just don’t get any respect,” Duvall said. “Then I come back home and I go see county Farm Bureaus and sit in front of 200 or 300 people and tell them how fortunate we are to have men and women that serve in our legislature that still know that agriculture’s the No. 1 industry in the state.” Black reminded legislators that Georgia needs their help telling the state’s agriculture story. “Too often this story gets kind of diluted. I tell lots of people, everywhere across the state, ‘Guess what, everything on the Internet is not true,’” he said. “Particularly when it comes to agriculture, there are tons of things on the Internet that quite frankly people need to have fact-checked up and down the room, and we’re going to stand in the See TOUR, page 7
GEORGIA GROWN PROFILE: Gin Creek Published by the Ga. Department of Agriculture Gary W. Black, Commissioner
100 acres of wine, weddings and more
By Jenna Saxon, press office Brothers Richie and Doug DeMott began developing Gin Creek in 1999. The original intention was to build a place to ride jet skis and host a few parties, but after developing DeMott Lake, the idea of hosting outdoor weddings was born. Gin Creek, located in Hartsfield, Ga., is a parent company of DeMott Lake, RoseMott Vineyards and the Winery at Gin Creek. The lake and vineyards sit atop 100 acres and serve as a destination for retreats, weddings, fishing and recreation. Gin Creek was one of the first outdoor wedding destinations of its kind in the South and has become one of the most sought-after locations for such events. It’s also been featured in Southern Living. “Brides from all over the country have married here saying the one thing that thrills our hearts: ‘Thank you. You have made my dreams
come true,’” said Richie DeMott. “There were never any blueprints. We were just fulfilling dreams with a farmer’s instinct, a good mechanic and a good Daddy’s upbringing. My dad would say, ‘Dream big, work hard and learn to do it yourself. Know that experience comes from mistakes and wisdom comes from experience.’” Gin Creek joined Georgia Grown during its re-launch in 2011, at the same time it was launching its Georgia Grown Trail on Highway 37. The company was the first to feature the Georgia Grown logo on its wine bottles. “Today the Georgia Grown brand is a huge marketing tool for our business and our Highway 37 trail,” Richie DeMott said. “Our Georgia Grown membership keeps us abreast of all the activities going on in the Georgia agricultural community and we’re honored to help promote agriculture and agritourism as two of the mainstays of Georgia’s economy.”

FARMERS AND CONSUMERS MARKET BULLETIN
TAKE 5: Georgia Grown magazine 1. How did the idea for Georgia Grown magazine come about? The idea for the magazine came from Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black. He wanted a way to communicate to the public the importance of agriculture in the state of Georgia. The first issue was fantastic and became the calling card of the Department and what we support every day. We think this second issue is even better and we hope you enjoy it. 2. What is the theme for this year’s issue? The theme for the 2013 to 2014 Georgia Grown magazine is “Heritage in Farming.” It is something that we thought embodied Georgia agriculture. The majority of Georgia farms are family-owned and many have been passed down through generations. We wanted people to see the passion that is behind these families that put food on our tables and clothes on our backs. 3. Tell us about some of the commodities featured this year. This year, like last year, we chose to focus on the commodities that make the state of Georgia a leader in agriculture production. Most people can name the “Five Ps of Georgia Agriculture” – peaches, peanuts, poultry, pecans and pine – but beyond that we have some great commodities in this state that have a huge impact. Turf grass is a great example of one of the commodities featured this year that has global impacts that many people don’t know we grow here in Georgia. ASBRIDGE
4. How do you choose the farms featured in the issue? All of the farms featured in the Georgia Grown magazine are chosen from the list of Georgia Grown members. It is our way of giving a little back to the members that support us. 5. Where can I find a copy? We have the magazines at all of our office locations across the state of Georgia. We hope everyone will stop by their nearest office or state farmers market and pick one up and learn a little bit more about Georgia agriculture. You can also view it online at www.gaagriculture.com. Alec Asbridge is the special projects coordinator for the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
GUEST COLUMN: Georgia Homemakers Council, Inc., revives craft traditions In 1936, the National Home Demonstration Council was formed. The name was later changed to the Homemakers Council, Inc. Georgia Homemakers Council, Inc., is what we’re all about. We held our 88th annual conference in April in Athens, Ga. We have a membership of people on committees such as education, health and family, environmental, cultural Morris, with prize-winning yo- arts and special community yo quilt on display at the 2013 projects. This dedicated Georgia National Fair membership willingly serves its community in various capacities and sponsors activities that are consistent with its commitment to education and service. The officers are president from Chatham County; president elect from Hall County; vice president from Fayette County; treasurer from Rabun County; secretary from Fayette County; district directors from Fannin, Pike and Chatham counties; and other appointed chairpersons. Georgia Homemakers Council, Inc., executive board meets January and August in Macon, Ga. Our goals and projects support the Southeastern Burn Center in Augusta, Ga., cancer society and many more. We give two scholarships annually to senior high school 4-H members and make quilts of valor for the military. Each Homemaker Club meets each month in their local areas and supports council projects and the conference. In addition, some projects are locally done, such as sponsoring a child to go to 4-H camp, supporting the military, collecting can tabs for 4-H and the Ronald McDonald House, local hospices, hospitals and nursing FARMERS & CONSUMERS MARKET BULLETIN (ISSN 0889-5619) is published biweekly by the Georgia Department of Agriculture 19 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Atlanta, GA 30334-4250 404-656-3722 • Fax 404-463-4389 Office hours 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday
homes; recycling; and supporting local police and fire departments. Georgia Homemakers Council, Inc., Week is observed Oct. 6 through 12 each year, statewide. At our annual conference in April, we have speakers, entertainment, workshops, plant sales and more. We recognize 50-year members, those who have died in the past year with memorial services and present the Homemaker of the Year to a member selected for the award from entries across the state. We have a fashion revue with all participants wearing handmade or wisely-purchased apparel. Contests include Cotton Creations, which requires all items to be made from cotton; crafts and hobbies are anything not made from cotton; and photography, quilting and recycling projects, all for sharing ideas and working together. Several of Georgia’s commissions have sponsored these events so we can present winning ribbons and awards in each category. One of the most enjoyable and rewarding events of Georgia Homemakers Council, Inc., is to be invited to take part in the Georgia National Fair in October. We started about eight years ago doing one day, then two, then three, now four. We have items to show and sell and teach crafts such as quilting, crocheting, knitting, yo-yos and other projects. The next time you go to the fair, be sure to tour the Miller Murphy Howard Building and visit us. This is a building you walk into and are in another world. Club members teach children, seniors and anyone wanting to learn sewing, cooking, handcrafts or gardening. You name it, we will find someone to do it! We need to renew lost traditions that Grandma did! So, join us and be involved in local and state levels, and we’ll see you at the 89th conference in 2014!

agriCULTURE Letter from the Editor
I had the pleasure of meeting a number of new, present and former Market Bulletin subscribers this month at the Georgia National Fair and Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition. Through my conversations, I learned that there’s one thing a great number of subscribers want out of this publication: more. They want the farmland for sale ads to come out more than twice a year. They want to see more craft patterns, like those that ran back in the 1960s. They want to see more recipes. They want to see more organic items for sale in a certified organic ad category. They want to see more coupons for grocery stores. The list goes on. Well, folks, here’s the thing. I want more, too. That’s the main reason I accepted this position, to bring more agriculture coverage and make the Market Bulletin a worthwhile investment for producers and consumers of all ages and backgrounds. But I can’t do it without your help. A Market Bulletin print subscription costs $10 per year. That $10 barely covers the printing costs and postage for 26 issues, because the Market Bulletin is not, and has never been, a moneymaking publication. As I was reminded numerous times since I started on July 1, it was free for 93 of its 96 years of existence. Now, it’s a nonprofit publication, not funded by taxpayer dollars … but instead, solely by its subscriber base. As a nonprofit, we have specific guidelines we have to follow for advertisements and revenue sources. Myself, the public affairs office and the commissioner are working on ways to bring you more from your Market Bulletin. We are exploring the possibility of paid advertisements (to fall within the nonprofit regulations) from agribusinesses and commodity groups. We are behind the scenes working with our technology experts to bring the website up to par and continue to build on our social media presence. We are even looking into grants to help fund educational coverage of specific agricultural topics. And starting this fall, we’ll be sending reminder notices in the mail to renew your subscription 30 days before it expires, so you won’t forget. In order to be able to bring in other sources of revenue to help the Market Bulletin cover its costs, we need to have a healthy subscriber base. Offering paid advertisements to commodity groups and telling them you have 50,000 subscribers sounds a lot better than telling them you have 39,642 (or thereabouts). Telling them you’ve got 100,000 sounds even better than 50,000. That being said, I ask each of you to ask one person if they’d be interested in subscribing to the Market Bulletin. Maybe it’s your cousin in metro Atlanta who wants to start a backyard garden, but doesn’t know how. Show him a few of Arty’s Garden tips and the flowers and plants for sale ads. Perhaps it’s a neighbor who’s 87 and getting out of the chicken business and needs a place to sell her equipment that won’t break the bank. She could probably be well-served by the ads section as well. What about your county Extension agents and ag teachers? They could get a classroom or office subscription that would act as a resource for students. That feed salesgirl who’s always on the road traveling to events could use an online subscription to check on her smartphone, tablet or laptop while she’s on the go. We all want more from the Market Bulletin, and we want more people to be interested in it, whether it’s to buy, sell or read about agriculture. But we’ll never know who those “more people” might be unless we ask them. Dallas Duncan is the editor of the Market Bulletin. Originally from Evans, Ga., she graduated in May 2011 with a double major in animal science and agricultural communication from the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. She previously worked for The Red & Black, The Times newspaper in Gainesville, Ga., and Georgia Cattlemen’s Association.

gap and do that.” Many of the tour stops fell in the area represented by Rep. Amy Carter. “Agriculture is the way of life in my district, so I felt it best to even serve as a cheerleader for the south Georgia farms that we spotlighted on this tour,” Carter said. “I think it’s important that those who live in the urban and suburban areas of the state to see what rural Georgia truly looks like.” Rep. Margaret Kaiser, on the other hand, represents part of the metro Atlanta area. As a restaurant owner and representative of a district where farm-to-table eateries are gaining popularity, Kaiser said she has always found the Ag Committee fascinating. She said going on tours such as this allow her to gain a better understanding of technology and advancements in agriculture. “I told my husband I know I’m a city girl, but I think I’ve got a little farm girl in me,” she said. “I’ll never buy a 2x4 or a chicken without a totally different appreciation for the process.”

Agencies partner for farm equipment road safety message
VISIT WITH A VET:
Courtesy Georgia Department of Agriculture press office
The number of crashes on Georgia roads involving farm equipment rose 7 percent last year. In 2012, there were 429 farm-equipment related crashes in the state, resulting in 185 reported injuries and nine deaths. With the 2013 harvest season approaching, two state agencies are teaming up to bring attention to the need for more safety on Georgia’s rural roads. “As our farmers are working to bring in this year’s
Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black, left, and Harris Blackwood, director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, are teaming up for a third year for the “Improving Georgia’s Yield Behind the Wheel” campaign. Here, they address constituents at the Georgia National Fair in Perry, Ga., on the importance of sharing the road with farm equipment. Photo by Jenna Saxon
crop, we want to remind Georgians of farmers’ increased presence on the roadways,” said Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black. “While traveling, we urge you to be mindful of tractors and other farm equipment sharing the same roadways and to take extra precaution.” This marks the third year Black and Governor’s Office of Highway Safety Director Harris Blackwood will unite their efforts behind the “Improving Georgia’s Yield Behind the Wheel” campaign. “While motorists cruise the beautiful rural roadways of Georgia this year, they should be aware of slow-moving farm equipment using those roads during harvest season,” Blackwood said. “We’ve worked the last two years to get this message out to drive safely around slow-moving vehicles, but it’s clear there is still more work to do.” Black and Blackwood appeared together on Oct. 7 at the Georgia National Fair in Perry, Ga., and Oct. 16 at the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition in Moultrie, Ga., to remind the state’s farmers and motorists of the importance of sharing the road. “When sharing the road with other motorists, farmers should have red reflective triangles posted on their equipment to signal to drivers they are operating a slow-moving vehicle,” Black said. “The triangle should be visible and if it is rusted or faded, it should be replaced. We want our farmers to have a happy harvest and for motorists to get home safely.” By law, farm equipment must have the nationally designated slow-moving vehicle sign – a red triangle-shaped reflector – to warn oncoming drivers that their equipment is on the road. These vehicles often travel at speeds no higher than 25 miles per hour. “When drivers come up on slow-moving vehicles on an open country road, many won’t think twice about passing them in a hurry,” Blackwood said. “We want to remind motorists that these farmers have every right to use the roadway, too. Waiting a few minutes to safely pass or for the driver to pull over won’t impact their drive substantially, and they will get home unharmed.”
EXPO: Florida spotlighted at 2013 event From Page 1 “We certainly want to be here for the next generation. There are a lot of thoughts about this word, but … there’s no greater picture of that than a family that’s been in business for scores of years, who’ve served Georgians and served a market throughout this country and the world, for year after year after year,” he said. “When you have generations come through a heritage, ladies and gentlemen, that’s the picture of sustainability. That’s the folks who are going to be here next year. They’re going to be those tremendous supporters and stewards of the environment. They’re going to be the protectors of the food and fiber system.” Ten of these protectors – whom Black called “heroes of agriculture and heroes of America” – were honored as state Farmer of the Year winners at Sunbelt at the Willie B. Withers luncheon. Georgia’s Farmer of the Year was Will Harris of Bluffton, Ga., owner of White Oak Pastures, and the overall Southeastern Farmer of the Year prize went to James Cooley, the South Carolina state winner. Florida was the 2013 spotlight state, and Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam addressed the crowd during the luncheon. “I came here for the hot, grilled peanut butter sandwich. That is fine eating,” he said. “If we could figure out
a way to get some guava jelly on that thing from Florida, and then co-locate the milk producers next to that booth, we’d have nirvana.” On a more serious note, he called the luncheon “the epitome of preaching to the choir,” but added that it was still important to preach it. “American agriculture has its hands full,” Putnam said. “There’s only a percent-and-a-half of the American population … feeding our country, allowing us to be food secure, food independent and create new export markets to help our balance of trade.” But by working together “shoulder to shoulder,” Putnam said, the strength of American agriculture will help solve the problem of feeding 9 billion people by 2050, and still maintain global dominance in terms of food security. “Farmers come and go. But our legacy as commissioners and as farmers and as farm families is to steward this land that the Lord has given us as we borrow it for our time here on this Earth for this next generation,” Putnam said. “And we will be able – 50 years from now, 100 years from now – to come out here and see equipment that we can’t fathom today, but we’ll see these 4-H and FFA members demonstrating to their kids why agriculture is alive and well in the Southeastern United States.”
Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus Visit with a Georgia veterinarian in this monthly feature. This edition comes from Dr. Jeremiah Saliki, director of the Athens, Ga., Veterinary Diagnostic Lab. In April and May 2013, multiple Midwestern American pig farms were simultaneously hit with a disease characterized by diarrhea and vomiting. These symptoms led clinicians and diagnosticians to suspect the coronavirus transmissible gastroenteritis virus, or TGEV, as the cause. Testing fecal samples from sick piglets using standard laboratory techniques failed to confirm these suspicions. However, when the same samples were examined under an electron microscope, coronavirus particles were detected. The unexpected discovery of coronavirus particles that were negative for both US swine coronaviruses – TGEV and porcine respiratory coronavirus – prompted further testing. Tests done at Iowa State University and the Federal Laboratory at Ames were done for exotic coronaviruses, and resulted in the confirmation of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus for the first time in the US. Geographic distribution, transmission and clinical signs Coronaviruses are highly contagious, and the outbreaks in the US spread rapidly. Within six weeks the virus had been confirmed in about 200 hog facilities in 14 states including Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and South Dakota. Sporadic outbreaks of porcine epidemic diarrhea were first identified in the United Kingdom in 1971, and this infection has become endemic in most Asian countries since 1982. There was one incursion into Canada in 1980, but it has not been reported in North America since then. The virus is transmitted by the oral-fecal route, with an incubation period of three to four days. Contaminated personnel, equipment, or other fomites may introduce PEDV into a susceptible herd. The disease is difficult to distinguish from TGEV, with the main clinical sign being watery feces that may resemble tufts of wool and have an unpleasant smell. Vomiting may occur and dehydration is a secondary sign. Morbidity and mortality can surpass 90 percent in suckling piglets fewer than 14 days old, but gradually decreases with age. During necropsy, histological examinations – where thin pieces of tissue are mounted on slides and viewed under a microscope – show the small intestine is inflamed with shortened villi, which indicates nutrients are not being properly absorbed, causing diarrhea. Diagnosis The most useful diagnostic specimen is feces or a loop of small intestine. A variety of diagnostic tests, including negative-staining electron microscopy, fluorescent antibody staining, immunohistochemical staining and virus isolation, commonly used for TGEV diagnosis are available in our laboratory for presumptive PEDV diagnosis. However, a test known as polymerase chain reaction is the only technique that can differentiate between TGEV and PEDV. The diagnostic labs in Tifton and Athens, Ga., offer a PCR technique that can detect both viruses, and a positive result is followed by an additional test – sequencing – for definitive diagnosis. PED and Georgia The rapid spread of PED across the US and its occurrence in neighboring North Carolina raise concern for its possible introduction into Georgia. Fortunately, we are poised to rapidly detect the virus if it was to enter the state. The vigilance of swine practitioners and animal owners is key to detecting its incursion into our state. We recommend that PEDV testing be requested for all cases in which an acute TGEV-like disease is observed with high morbidity. Some information in this column comes from the USDA Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Technical Note and the 2012 publication “Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus: a comprehensive review of molecular epidemiology, diagnosis, and vaccines.”
