PLAN LARGE FLOOR If you're building a concrete i feeding floor, make sure it is 1 large enough to take care of the livestock that are to use it.

Save Regularly FIRST NATIONAL BANK Mason City, Iowa Founded in 1869 A GOOD BANK TO TIE TO MEMBER FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION' REACH FOR .^ BREAD AT ITS BEST Check Sprayer for Winter Storage A final ready-Tor winter check is in order for"farm sprayers before freezing weather sets in, advises Dale Woolsoncraft, extension agricultural engineer at Iowa State colege. While most spraying machines were probably readied for storage when the last spraying job was completed, it may pay to make sure now that the pump is empty of liquid, Woolsoncroft says. He points out that sprayer pumps that are left filled with liquid spraying material are likely to be damaged when the liquid freezes and • expands. Sprayer tanks also need to be drained, and it's a good idea to drain hoses that are hanging in loops and may be filled with liquid. On most sprayer pumps a drain plug is provided for removing liquid in preparation for winter. Pumps without drain . plugs may be taken off and | ! turned upside down to drain. *' A final check should be made to 'make sure that draining removes the liquid from the pump, Woolsoncroft says.
