From signed deal to turning out bales -- Mississippi cotton gin is running in seven months' time

At the 2012 Mid-South Farm & Gin Show, a group of east Mississippi cotton producers had a handshake commitment to build a state-of-the-art cotton gin near Brooksville, Miss. In March, stock had been sold, a board of directors named, and a deal signed. In late October, the $6.5 million Bogue Chitto gin was up and running. The area centering around Noxubee County  consistently has some of the highest cotton yields in Mississippi. It's expected the facility will gin 35,000 bales from the 2012 crop.
