• e •
In the last ten years production methods on the farm have been tremendously
speeded by the use of modern machinery. Many crops are now harvested in
days instead of weeks. This stepped-up productivity has emphasized the
need for farm service buildings that are more functional—buildings which
•re efficient production tools —which supplement machinery in increasing
the production of both crops and animals.
With a Stran-Steel Quonset, the farmer has the finest non-combustible farm
service building obtainable. It provides maximum comfort, convenience,
efficiency, durability and adaptability. Its clean functional lines make it a
source of pride and satisfaction. Its low maintenance cost and dependability
mark it as a sound investment that will keep on producing year after year.
