Wikipedia has more information about Country Gentleman:
 
Country Gentleman (1831-1955) was an American agricultural magazine founded in 1831 in Rochester, NY by Luther Tucker. The magazine was purchased by Curtis Publishing Company in 1911.[1] Curtis redirected the magazine to address the business side of farming, which was largely ignored by the agricultural magazines of the time.[2] In 1955, Country Gentleman was the second most popular agricultural magazine in the US, with a circulation of 2,870,380. That year it was purchased by, and merged into, Farm Journal, an agricultural magazine with a slightly larger circulation.
