Timing is Great for beating back the cost of production per bushel produced.  

Dec. 6 to 10, an outstanding tour and lots of new technology pockets to discuss to drive costs lower and raise more of it.  

Here is what we will see.

Aqua Spy reviewed. Joel McClure will give us a report on telemetry and stored soil moisture from the “heart of the dustbowl.”


Mustang Tool Bar at Liberal, KS, Keating Tractor. Ready for 7,000 acres of rental application between December and May of 2019.




Panhandle, Texas, making good yields….each round bale is worth about $900.  A CS690. A stripper.  This is a good crop.



Highly efficient. A big change in cotton, like going from horses to tractors.  

Like parking the stationary thresher and going to a self-propelled combine. 

A Big Leap ahead for Cotton. CP690, A picker.  

“Flat Amazing , Totally changes Cotton and the Game Plan.” GJS



John Cory says , The bale is tight,  Guy “.



Definitely a place for GMO, Cotton performs to the max with subsurface drip irrigation, John was impressed, this was a highlight on Nov. 29, 18 at Amarillo Farm Show.



More for Less.  About 12 cents per pound to harvest and bale. 

A very exciting time for Cotton Producers at Panhandle, Texas.  

About 4 to 6 jobs eliminated for an average cotton farmer, so 12 cents may seem like a lot….but really the harvest cost is probably for free.  

Check out the sticker on the left lower side of the round bale, properly identified, and ready for the Gin, hauled on a Step Deck or an RGN. About 4,200 lbs. per bale and 10 bales per load.  

Mark Urbanzyck at Panhandle, Texas, Nov. 29th 18. This is also drip irrigation on 60 inch centers.
