Farmers Use Pink Cotton Bales To Spread A Message Of Hope

December 16, 2018

Farmers across North Escambia used huge pink cotton bales during the harvest season to spread a message of hope.

The plastic bale wraps are pink — really, really John Deere pink. The pink cotton bales have lined the highways as they awaited transportation to the cotton gin. John Deere makes the pink bale wrappers available for breast cancer awareness and a way for farmers to show support for those battling breast cancer.

The pink wraps, at about $12-14 per bale, don’t cost the producer any more than the traditional yellow.
