any questions call on clinic sponsors for help Stop at local dealers or mail the coupon below for free handbooks on the subjects of your choice. SERVICE... that's what initially inspired the Corn-Soybean Clinics. Its sponsors felt-that if they could come up with a program that handed out the kind of practical advice that proved helpful to farmers, they would not only advance agriculture on the whole but would instill in their customers and prospects an appreciation and loyalty that would make them steady customers. . That goal is becoming a reality. Local dealers of sponsoring companies — Allis- Chalmers, DeKalb, Allied Chemical, Anv- Chem, Shell Chemical, Behlen and Ralston Purina—are reporting numerous instances where fanners are showing a genuine respect for the dealers' localized advice, and have expressed appreciation for the tips that have proven profitable. That's really what agricultural sales are made of today... service. As agriculture continues to become more technical and new methods crop up every year, this close relationship between farmer and supplier will become increasingly important to both parties. It's the only way that the supplier can fill the fanner's changing needs and the only way that a fanner can get full benefit from the supplier's products. In short, it takes teamwork. The sponsors crammed a lot of advice into the Clinic program, but time wasn't adequate to touch on everything... it's impossible to sum up all the new ideas in agriculture hi 6 hours! For that reason, each Clinic sponsor handed out "here's how" brochures at the end of the program, which covered, topics they weren't able to explain in detail, and which added retention to the topics that were covered. These company brochures, like the Clinic program, are short on sales and long on service. Most are pocket or handbook size, and provide a handy reference that you can keep within reach. If you weren't able to attend the Corn- Soybean Clinic and would like to receive the helpful advice these booklets offer, stop in and pick them up at your local dealer who markets the respective products, or check off and mail the coupon below to TOP FARMER, 20 N.
