These Top Farmers will be shooting for high profit yields this year with: • New crop management practices • New high-capacity equipment • New improved seed varieties farmer reports Do you know the major worm problems that hold back growing pigs? The above liver lesions ate caused by migrating roundworm larvae. The damage causes unthrifty pigs and liver condemnation. The lumpy nodules you see on the wall of the intestine are made by nodular worms. A heavy infestation results in general unthriftiness. This photo shows damage done by whipworms attached to the wall of the large gut of a hog. Nodules and inflammation limit weight gain. Roundwonns have blocked this intestine, killing the pig. Less severe infestations reduce appetite, retard growth. Shell's AtganTV provides the wide-range worm control needed to prevent all four kinds of damage. xroun veterinarian has Atgard V A (dichlorvos), the new professional wormer that goes far beyond control of 1 or 2 worm types. The pictures above make it easy to understand why it's so important to control all 4 major worm problems in pigs. By allowing even one species to remain uncontrolled you risk damage that can measurably affect feed efficiency and the health of your herd. Professional results Let your veterinarian help you plan a professional worm control program based on the wide-range effectiveness of Atgard V. Then watch the results from control of (1) mature round worms, (2) fourth stage roundworm larvae, (3) whipworms and, (4) nodular worms. Why Atgard V worms so efficiently Rice-sized pellets of Atgard V release continuous control as they pass through pigs—an entirely new control concept. You simply mix the wormer in a non- pelletized feed and let the pigs clean it up. No problems with palatability. No need to starve or purge pigs prior to treatment. And with Atgard V there's also a wide safety margin. Early worming pays Worm pigs young and you give them a head start toward an early market date. Free from the drag of worms they can make more pork per day per pound of feed. Treat with Atgard V as scon as pigs can eat solid feed and you benefit from both efficiency and economy. Your veterinarian has Atgard V and all the details on treatment and dosage. Take advantage of his help and worm your pigs for maximum profit this year. Shell Chemical Company, Agricultural Chemicals Divisiony 110 West 51st Street, New York 10020. Atgard'V SWINE ANTHEUMINTIC Immega Rummel Gerhordt Immega, Elkhorn, Wis. New, short-stalked hybrids and heavy fertilization proved profitable for this dairyman in his first year with 30-inch rows. "I'll stay with pretty much the same program this year... maybe go a little higher on plant population," he says. Last year he planted DeKalb XL-45 at 24,000, and used chemicals on weeds and insects. Roy Rummel, DuBois Co., Ind. The brother team of Roy and Ray Rummel pushed their corn yield to 185 bu. per acre on one test plot... and in an area not known for record yields. They claim narrow rows, better hybrids and high population did it. This year? "The same program, except for more fertilizer," they say. "We plan to use at least 300 Ibs. of 10 : 40-10, 300 Ibs. of potash and 275 Ibs. of N. per acre." Knipp Baer Warren Knipp, Mascoutah, III. "Minimum tillage worked well with narrow rows," Knipp relates. "I get better water retention in the soil. Some people work the soil too much." Knipp's narrow rows showed an 18.5 bu. advantage in a side-by-side comparison with 40-inch rows. He plowed his corn ground last fall... will just loosen the soil with a field cultivator ahead of the planter this spring. Elmer Baer, Manchester, la. —Producing 150,000 bushels of corn on 1,500 acres, as Baer did last year, would satisfy, most people. But Baer has his sights set on 225,000 bushels from the same number of acres this year. He had some insect problems in 1965, and feels greater use of insecticides will lead to the yield increase. "I placed an order for $10,000 worth of chemicals yesterday, so you can see I'm convinced," says Baer.
