Edgar's picture

MARTIN COUNTY and WEST TEXAS - It’s down to just a few - there’s now even less cotton left to bring to area gins, but several gins are still busy finishing up what’s gone to the gin yards.

Some gins remain busy with much of that which has already been hauled out of fields and the continued good weather means work goes on without much interruption while other gins have wrapped up operations for this season.

At Midkiff, the gin there reports final numbers around 50,000 while the gin at Ackerly finished its season just above 32,000.

Other area gins just finished are at St. Lawrence with the numbers topping out at 100,743 while closer to home the Stanton gin is at 21,988 and done for the year.
