Cotton wagon ….

Bates Houck

Only sixty years ago, cotton from the field was pulled to the gin in a wagon with wire screen sides.  Today, the “boll buggy” dumps its load into a “module builder” which presses out a loaf of cotton that is hauled to the gin by a 16 wheeler.  An image from our  documentary project, “Cotton Tale.”   Will Wofford mans the module builder and Josh Johnson pulls the load with the Houck Farms John Deere 7810.

    Very nice work, Houck. You’ve found your second calling – or is it your third?
