Everett Students Visit Cotton Gin


Everett third graders get an idea of how big a John Deere cotton picker is when they stand in front of it.

The third grade class at Everett Elementary got to see a cotton gin at work when they visited the PPF Gin and Warehouse in Delta County. They toured the facility learning where cotton is grown and how it’s harvested. They got to see how the seeds are separated from the cotton fibers leaving lint that is baled for shipping. The seeds are then used to grow more cotton or to produce cottonseed oil and meal.

A worker demonstrates how a cotton gin separates cotton fibers from the seeds.
Once the cotton is separated from the seeds, the cotton fibers are made into bales for shipping.
