Stripping In West Texas

November 14, 2021

In a world that takes so many products and conveniences for granted, it is fantastic to see the real people that work so hard to put food on our tables and clothes on our backs.

I worked at John Deere Des Moines Works where cotton harvesting equipment is designed and built over 20 years ago. I was fortunate to visit the Lubbock area for introduction of the 7450 Stripper, the predecessor to the 7455. I was directly involved with the development of the stripper row unit as you saw on those machines as well as the cleaner. The move to the round bales from the modules was a big transformation for the whole industry and reduced the labor inputs.
