Re: cotton harvesting equipment

****, Nice pics.

I am a lil uneducated on Cotton, What are those modules supposed to do?

I dont really understand what happens between exiting the Cotton Picker itself and arriving at the Cotton Gin.

What happens Inbetween?

Check this out. A pretty interesting history of the advent of the cotton module.

Re: cotton harvesting equipment

That's some nice looking cotton, Kiley. How's it doing? Was there a lot planted down there this year? I know last winter sometime when I went to Amarillo the gin yard at Dumas was plumb full of modules and they still had a lot to pick up. You think many acres will shift to corn next year?

Re: cotton harvesting equipment

that field averaged 2.6 bales per acre field we were in today was doin right at three im guessing that all of our thousand acres is gonna do at least 2 bales. i dont know how many more acres will shift to corn next year last year we had 5,000 acres of cotton and this year we only have 1,000 i dont think many more acres will shift to corn for the simple reason that we didnt put that much water or a whole lot of money into the crop, but we did have a moist summer and since we are a minumn till operation strip tilling and planting into the cotton stubble is so nice and we can achieve a good stand. the gin is expceted to do around 40,000 bales this year and last year they did around 95,000 so production is down about half for the gin
any more questions just shoot

Re: cotton harvesting equipment

kiley, is a 10 row stripper head the widest one currently available?
why not a lot wider like a 20?
last question if ya don't mind.
what is the groung speed difference between a stripper and a picker in say 3 bale cotton, same # of rows?
