Corn Shields Save 3 to 5 Bu Per Acre
The shields install with just three or four bolts depending on make of combine. They fit most Case/IH and Deere heads and sell for $129.95 a pair. (Models for new Deere poly heads as well as for other poly snouts will be available in 1997).

Crop dividers are wedge-shaped attachments that mount on outer snouts of a corn head to keep cobs from bouncing out the sides of the header. Inventor Herald Barton says the patented shields can easily save 3 to 5 bu. of corn per acre depending on conditions.
Since FARM SHOW first reported on the shields a year ago (Vol. 19, No. 6), Barton has found a manufacturer to make his "Corn Shields" out of poly.
