Plains Cotton Growers gather for annual meeting

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Producers and ginners met on Friday to discuss changes in the cotton industry.

They gathered for Plains Cotton Growers' annual meeting.

It's held in conjunction with the Texas Cotton Growers' trade show taking place at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

Chairman Brad Heffington says continued education on changes in the farm bill is important for their membership.

"The general consensus, a lot of people are really a little, just concerned - maybe until they get the rules out, a little apprehensive. We believe they'll be implemented in a way that will be good for our producers," Heffington said.
