Bale-On-The-Go Cotton Pickers
A new breed of cotton picker was on display at the recent World Ag Expo near Tulare, Calif.
  Deere had a first-of-its-kind big round bale of cotton on display and Case IH introduced its new Module Express 625, which produces compressed square bales weighing anywhere from 4,000 to 12,000 lbs. Deere's picker is not yet on the market.
  Both new cotton pickers eliminate the need for separate "module builders" since they make their big bales on-the-go. In the past, cotton was picked and then dumped into a separate machine. The Deere picker unloads bales on-the-go while the Case IH machine requires that you stop to unload. With both pickers, you can control the size and density from the cab.
