and then discover the supply is
exhausted. Certified seed is
strongly suggested in order to
realize the most from all inputs.
If you plan to use homegrown
seed from a healthy field, they
should be tested at the Penn
sylvania Department of
Agriculture seed lab; don’t waste
time and money on poor quality
seed; you could be spreading
disease and more weeds.
To Take Time To Be Safe
Once every four years the
average farm laborer can expect
to be injured so severely that
medical attention is required. Our
safety engineers tell us that
agricultural workers are much
more susceptible to accidents and
injury than industrial workers.
Many pieces of farm machinery
need to be repaired and adjusted
on the job. Some of this is done
while the machinery is on the run.
This is dangerous and we urge you
to stop the machine and shut it off
before any adjustments are made.
Just a few seconds of patience
could save your life or a vital part
Your S7 — TSx-o-Wik dealer has
great deals on great grain dryers. He
has recirculating batch dryers in

G7 — Tmx-a-wsh dryers are loaded
with features to get the most out
of every dollars worth of fuel. And
they handle the grain gently to
keep the quality in while taking the
moisture out
These dryers are on sale now so
you can beat the harvest rush and
save thousands.
So see your dealer today and get
one of these hot deals before his
