Good Progress 11-17-2014 Two thirds of the farming Operations are finished with their cotton harvest and the cotton gins will approach the halfway point this week. We had several weeks of picking during the end of October and the First half of November that really got some modules stacked up a bit. There is a 3 - 4 week gap developing between the Picker and the cotton gin this year based on having so many consequitive picking days along with above average yields, nevertheless things seem to be smooth. All of the cotton has been picked in excellent conditions and will store quite well in a module when it is picked in good weather. I would expect harvest to be completed by the end of November which is ahead of last year, however ginning will extend an extra week or so longer than last year.
