Corn+Soybean Digest

CSD75: Soybean Digest –1950s Advertising: John Deere, Allis-Chalmers, Cargill

In the 1950s, CSD advertisers offered a lot to readers. From combines and tractors to an inoculant, vacuum and solvents, check out these products from Phillips Solvents, John Deere, Cargill, Allis-Chalmers and more.

Check out these advertisements that we found from November 1954 to October 1955. 

As part of our 75th birthday, we look back at interesting stories during each decade (first installment). For fun, we’ll take a look at the some of the advertising during each decade, since these valuable companies provide the revenue that allows us to send you a free magazine. And good content isn’t cheap. In fact, the association lost $2,000 in the first year of publishing Soybean Digest, but they vowed to continue support of this valuable information for farmers.
