Cotton Gin Trade Show Hits Lubbock

The latest cotton gin technology has been on display in Lubbock this week. The annual Cotton Ginners Trade show was held this week at the Lubbock Civic Center. It's a chance for cotton ginners from around the state to buy and sell the latest ginning technology.

Among the ginners attending was, Chris Breedlove, Manager of the Olton Co-Op Gin. That gin holds a lucrative record from last year. "We were fortunate mother nature brought a nice summer and growing conditions and we ginned more cotton than any gin in the State of Texas," Breedlove said.

Breedlove's gin put out almost 90,000 bales of cotton last year. That's more than almost 300 other gins in the state.
