Tested under actual farm conditions by Iowa State University, and studies made by the universities of Illinois, Ohio State and Purdue, as well as farm bin experience, has proven that the STIRWAYCUTS DRYING TIME MORE THAN HALF! TEST RESULTS PROVE STIRWAY'S VALUE. Iowa State University supervised test was run on two separate farms operated by the same individual, using two 24' bins. A 7V'a H. P. fan and heater were used on the bin with the STTRWAY and a 10 H. P. fan and heater on the bin without the STIRWAY. The following statistics show the results over a year's testing period: r^r^r^r^r^^^ -w •»••»••»••»• -^ -^ FABRIC STYLE SHOW Garments Made of Fabrics from THE CHRISCHILLES STORE 20 MODELS - LARGEST FABRIC SHOW EVER STAGED - PROCEEDS GO TO C D OF A — TICKETS SOLD BY ALL C D OF A MEMBERS AND DIAMOND'S AND CHRISCHILLES, MARK THIS DATE ON YOUR CALENDAR MONDAY EVENING - AUGUST 2 Ul - 8:00 Garrtfin Atiiloriuo-Tickets Only We The CHRISCHILLES STORE TIME Drying & Cooling Rate COST Totnl Po«;t (Electric-Sty for STIRWAY and grain COST PER BUSHEL MOISTURE Cost/point of moisture removed/bu COST REDUCTION Per point of moisture removed by using STIRWAY 7VL-h.p.F&H STIRWAY 10,480 182 Mrs. 57.50 bu/hr. $144.22 44.91 $189.13 $ 2.04 0.0183 cents 6.58% 13.18% 0.00278 cents 13.1% lOh.p.F&H NO STIRWAY 4,720 369 Hri. 12.78 bu/hr. $127.80 70.00 $197.80 0.0418 cents 13.1% 10.8% 0.00320 cents FWBmwB- ^ JIRWAY, |HIWILO,IOWA mmmn^^^* AVAILABLE FOR ALL SIZES AND KINDS OF BINS! t^mm>w*m- ^ JIRWAY, IHIf HUD, IOWA These figures are comparable to results obtained by many STIRWAY owners and private testing facilities. From these statistics and farm experiences, It is concluded: 1. Drying lime — 2Vi times Ulttr using STIRWAY. 2. Over twice as much corn dried using Ihe STIRWAY. 3. Total electrical and fuel bill less with STIRWAY. 4. Very little moisture variation from top to bottom of bin using the STIRWAY. However, you will note the bin without the STIRWAY has a final moisture of 10.8%. For this grain to keep, it had to be dried to this average point. Following the pattern of other tested bins, the top grain moisture would have been 15%% and the bottom grain would have been dried to 6% to arrive at the average of 10.B' 1 !. No. 2 corn sold at less than 15 v; moisture takes a loss on weight. When drying corn to 10.8'; moisture, 2.95 Ibs. per bushel is LOST. lost over $322.00 (4.720 bu. x 2.95 The farm without a STIRWAY actually by over-drying bottom grain in the bin. weight lost x $1.30 market price.) Using these figures, and considering only the average final moisture content ... if the other farm had not used the STIRWAY and had dried 10,480 bu., the results would be: 10,480 bu x 2.95 Ib. weight loss x $1.30 market price, equals over $717.00. This ALONE would MORE THAN pay for a STIRWAY. •m W li B Im B B I Kyle Keith, Phone - Representing STOCKDALE'$ of Iowa Foil* 934*9370
