For 35 years the Peering Binder has done perfect work for the
farmers in this county. Today, it is better than ever before. Drop
in any time and see our new Deering samples.
Like every successful farm implement the Deering Binder has imitators.
There are Binders and Mowers made very much like the Deering, but a wise
buyer will not pay out good money for an untried "experiment" when we can
get the "old reliable" Deering for the same money.
Deering Harvesting and Haying Machinery is built by men who have
made a life study of such implements. The Deering Binder you buy today, is
the result of 35 years experience in building good harvesting machines. When
you put a Deering Binder or Mower into your field at the beginning of harvest
you have the satisfaction of knowing that no man in the world has a better ma
chine than you have.
We are exclusive agents for Deering Standard Twine in this territory. In view of the pre
dicted twine shortage, we suggest that you give us your order now to avoid disappointment.
