This week’s Cotton Newsline is 3 cuts. All cuts are Kenneth Hood, cotton producer, Gunnison, Mississippi.
Suggested introduction cut 1:
Perthshire Farms has spent the past five years testing a new cotton picker from Case IH. Kenneth Hood says their family run operation in Gunnison, Mississippi has seen greater efficiencies using this on-board module builder.
Suggested introduction cut 2:
According to Hood the smaller modules have also made hauling to the gin more efficient.
Suggested introduction cut 3:
The new cotton pickers will be equipped with yield monitors. Hood says the monitors will make it easier for the operator to gage when he needs to unload more accurately than he could with a conventional picker.
