Turning to 6-fOW planting equipment with larger hop- pert, Especially, for fertilizer, can speed up the planting job. Timeliness of planting may mean an extra 4 to 5 bushels production per acre. Hoppers on this machine will permrtVplantirtg up to 8 acres before they must be refilled. When your fertilizer hopper is emptied, you shouldn't haye to shut down and drive across the field or back to the barn to refill it. Supplies should be spotted carefully along the field borders. Liquid fertilizer Is catching on fast for starter applications at planting. It can be pumped instead of handled manually. Note the clear tube gauges along the sides of the liquid tank. The tractor operator can see at a -glance the.leveLof fertilizer left in the tank - this eliminates stops to check on the amount of material in the tank and helps prevent fertilizer misses or planting after fertilizer runs out. Handling bales directly from the baler to the hay wagon makes this 1 job a lot easier. It also reduces the labor crew, compared to operations which let bales drop to the ground, Since pulling a wagon slows baler travel speed, plan to, have plenty of wagons available so there'll be no waiting. Otherwise you may lose more than you gain. Mr. Clark is a graduate of Iowa State College. In cooperation with his father, Albert Clark, he raises annually 400 to'600 head of purebred registered Landrace hogs. In 1958, they had the Grand Champion Female in the National Landrace Breed Conference at Purdue, Says Martin H. Clark of Kanawha, Iowa: "More gain on less feed" "I'm convinced that antibiotics are necessary for the efficient raising of hogs," says Mr. Clark. "Our registered purebred Landrace hogs have been raised with the help of AUREO- MYCiN® for the past three years, . "AUREOMYCIN has proved its value to our swine-raising program by eliminating cervical abscesses (which mean a loss of several dollars per animal). "It has proved its value by reducing the amount of feed needed per 100 pounds of weight gain~from 17 to 23 less pounds of feed are required. "It has proved its value by controlling invisible subclinical diseases, thereby minimizing the chances of serious infections getting a •foothold in the herd. "We're using AUREOMYCIN all the way through—in breeder stock feed at 26 grams per ton, in pig. a tarter feed at 80 to 90 grams per ton, and in grower feed at 60 grams per ton." Following a program similar to Mr. Clark's can mean extra market " returns for any hog producer! Ask your feed manufacturer or feed dealer today for swine feed containing AUEEOMYOIN.
