•vs,*- -, 4 »' t« Portable shades such as this are relatively inexpensive and can reduce your summer finishing costs materially. When you provide shade, make sure it is high enough to allow good air movement and to get sufficient shade area. Low-roofed shades hold in body heat rather than creating maximum cooling. Trucks with spraying equipment can reduce shipping loss considerably. In USDA studies it was determined that a semi-trailer could be equipped with a sprinkler system of galvanized Va-inch pipe for about $75. Later tests show that plastic "lawn soaker" garden hose will work satisfactorily. You can outfit a truck with this for about $35. Hogs sprinkled in-transit had less total shrinkage — to the tune of 226 pounds per truck load in USDA tests. Death loss was cut to zero in trucks that had sprinklers, while six hogs died in the check trucks. It could easily pay you to fix sprinklers in your truck or get your trucker to outfit his rig with a watering system. Aerial photo of field where bean test was run. Light strips arc harvested areas. The proof is " in the Model 90 saves owner 36.9 bonus bushels worth $73.80 extra Here's real harvesting NEWS! During the 1958 soybean harvest, two combines, both late PTO models of similar size, each harvesting two rows at a time — were checked for bushels combined, time required and fuel used. One was a Model 90 ALL- CROP Harvester; the other, a competitive make. Both were owned by experienced farmers. Working side by side in the same field, each harvested a measured 18 acres, exchanging lands' halfway through the test to equalize any difference in yield of soybeans. Here are the results: The Allis-Chalmers Model 90 ... saved 36.9 more bushels of beans from its 18 acres. (Pictured above.) . . . finished in 5 hours, 48 minutes — 1 hour and 37 minutes sooner — a full 20 percent less time. f . . . was powered by an Allis- Chalmers D-14 Tractor which used 2Vi> less gallons of fuel .than the pompeting tractor.
