Clinic will show you how to EARN $3,000 IN 6 HOURS OVERESTIMATED? Top Farmers who attended last year's Clinics tell us we're being too conservative. Grab a pencil and we'll prove it. Say you're growing 300 acres of corn. If you pick up enough tips at the upcoming Clinic to raise your income $20 an acre, (they told us that was conservative, too) that's an extra $6,000 from next year's crop... just for 6 hours of your time and attention at the Clinic specified on the cover. And there's plenty to hold your attention. This isn't just one of thooe farm meetings that have become a favorite winter sport. This clinic is all business ... for farmers who mean business. The lunch is free. So's the morning coffee. But there's no "entertainment." Instead, dynamic speakers and top farmers with narrow-row know-how will pack 2 l / 2 hour sessions in the morning and afternoon with stuff that big profits are made of... heavy fertilization ... high populations ... narrow rows ... chemical weed and insect control... early harvest... minimum harvest losses... better storage and feeding methods. Completely different from last year. If you attended a Corn-Soybean Clinic last year, you're primed to gain even more from this year's event. By comparison, last year's clinic only pecked at the problems. We could only tell you then what needed to be done for top profits. This year we're bringing you the people who did it... top farmers who tried narrow rows and heavy populations... and earned $20 to $50 more per acre by using their brains along with their backs. Farmers such as Clyde Hight, who averaged nearly 200 bushels on 557 acres last fall, will relate their experiences and answer your questions... equipment and supply company executives will tell you what's available and what they have in the works... plus, this year's Clinic will feature storage and feed company representatives who will tell you how to store and market top crops for top profits. The following pages only hint at what will be covered at the Clinic. Reading this without attending the Clinic is like being satisfied with a sandwich containing/only two slices of bread. Come to the Clinic... and put some meat in your farming. "LED TO $25 MORE PROFIT PER ACRE," says Paul Morgan, who attended last year's Corn-Soybean Clinic at Grundy Center, Iowa. "I came away convinced that high populations were worth trying orrtralf my corn acreage, and it boosted my yields 20-30 bu. an acre. This year I'm growing even more plants... on all my acreage.' ...these farmers did! WORTH DRIVING 100 MILES, declares Joe Plaines, Lee County, Illinois. "After I attended the Clinic in Dixon last year, I felt my two sons, who farm near me, couldn't afford to miss it. I encouraged them to catch the next clinic at Ottawa, 100 miles away, the following day. And they thanked me when they got back." f I • » *l -J; LIKE NOTHING I EVER ATTENDED, states Ernest Lykens, Flat Rock, Indiana. 'The Clinic was a real eye opener. Lots of good ideas. I never received so much information in so little time before. We got so fired up at that meeting we could hardly wait for spring to come!" LEARNED MORE IN 6 HOURS THAN 2 YEARS, says Otto "Spike" Geriets, center, Petersburg, Illinois. "Those clinic people gave me just the nudge I needed to give some new practices a try. I tried some 30" corn rows and topped my 38" rows by 22 bushels per acre. I tried narrow rows on half my soybeans, too, and got 45 bushels per acre compared to 37 bushels on the regular rows. I'll try more of both this year... but first I'm going to the Clinic again to see what others are doing."
