A reserve crib full of natural-dry golden yellow whole kernel shelled com can
give you a mighty good feeling this time of year. Especially when you know
your crib is a shelled com storage bin that uses the same drying principle
approved by farmers for centuries to keep high quality ear com.
This good feeling comes for three reasons. One, you feel good when you see
your bright whole com kernels in the bin. No popped grains from excessive
heat drying. No unpalatable, scorched kernels. No dust in your bin from the
heat-drying process.'
Two, you fed good when you feed natural-dry, chill cured com. Your livestock
and poultry can gain more weight and produce more eggs with less shelled
com. That’s because this scientifically designed grain storage system doesn’t
bum away starches or protein in the drying process. You only evaporate away
the moisture. You retain more volume and more feed value.'
Three, you feel good when you look in your pocketbook. Because you no longer
need to spend up to 25 percent of your com crop to have the grain elevator dry
your com at harvest. Because you can store your grain on the farm until the
low harvest time prices have risen. And because after your neighbors have tried
some of your natural-dry com in their feeding program, you can expert a
premium price for your top quality com.

year with a storage bin full of beautiful, yellow whole-kernel, natural-dry
shelled com, write to A
