1 ^ P Some farmers have rigged up a handy feeding rack on their wagon. They chop it full in the field and. pull it right into the feeding lot. Usually one rack will handle about 30 cows. This system is less costly than the unloading wagon, but the rack has few other uses. "We've always had good success with FIRESTONE FARM TIRES says Henry Kunkter r Rt& I Stjemy, Ohio. "You read a lot of fancy claims about different farm tires," Henry KunMer told us, "but we've always had more success with Faestone!" Mr. Kunkler farms 280 acres in Ohio's rich Mercer County. No. soil in ©Mo is more productive—yet few soils are more, destructive to tractor tires. Abrasive elements peculiar to Mercer County sofls .quickly wear down ordinary treads during dry spells. That's why Henry Kunkler and hfe neighbors prefer Firestone Champion Ground Grip® Tires. They last longer and wear better than other tires. An ordinary yardstick can help tell you why Firestone Tires last longer. Eay the rule across the Champion Ground Grip's tough tread. You'll notice its extra width and flatter contour. It's made to grab and hold the extra ground needed for greater traction. The wide flat tread gives longer fife and lower costs per year of use. Extra traction is just one of many Firestone Tractor Tire advantages. See your Firestone Store or Dealer about all your farm tire needs. You'll find that you'B get more for your money with Firestone tires. tr If you just want to give green feeding a try before investing in a lot of equipment, you can feed it almost anywhere like this farmer has done. Note how these cows dig into the fresh green forage. You can be sure they'll eat plenty even on days when hot weather would slow down grazing. Henry Kunkler, Sr., left, shown here with Charlie Schrage of the Wolff Tire Service., Celina, Ohio, Firestone Dealer. Henry Kunkler, Jr., (right) learns how Firestone's new air measure gauge indicates correct tire inflation regardless of load. The Kunklers' farm tire needs are serviced by Wolff Tire Service. * Another idea used by farmers who don't like the daily job of making green chop is to harvest the pasture as silage. With this system you can harvest your pasture crop when it's at the ideal stage. The main advantage is that you can do the whole job at once and aren't forced to go out and cut feed on rainy, muddy days. This farmer is starting with a temporary trench silo.
