How can I get netflow statistics from cisco 3750 and 3560 switches?

Is there an official or unofficial way, maybe a workaround?

Perhaps I need a certain version of software on the switches?

This is not meant to be outright bashing, but Cisco will never add this feature. They want you to buy MARS an/or huge overy expensive chassis based switches, I see more features disappear with every ios release for the workgroup level switches. They won't even do GVRP anymore.
I have suggestions, but it is kind of off topic for the thread.

You could use a span port and a netflow probe
