You want to see it? Go stand in the middle of a milo field and look around, welcome to the King Ranch, oh I almost forgot do it on a day of 100 degree heat with 95% humidity.

you aint kidding alex south texas sucks you wake up, walk outside and ur automaticly sweating ive spent my fair share of summers down there
if i farmed 60,000 acres of milo and cotton i would have my own gin, and elevator if you do the math a typical cotton crop it 2 bales per acre that 60,000 bales thats what an average gin will do in south texas. an average milo crop is 5,000 lbs per arce which equals 1.5 million l think
ive heard stories of people sneaking into the king ranch to hunt deer just to say that they did it some of them have never came back out

You wouldn't have to, it was a staged picture. It would be terribly inefficient to run 40+ pickers in one field, even in King Ranch Farms' ultra large fields.
