Know your Ginning Costs

The cost of ginning cotton is an important concern for ginners and recently a cost survey has been sent to your gin requesting cost data on key variable cost figures – energy, labor, bagging and tie, and repair and maintenance. Other operational data is also requested.  It is important for our industry to have a clear understanding of the cost of ginning and we urge you to participate in this important survey. All individual information will be kept confidential and only averaged data will be published.    Gin owners and managers can use this composite information when considering equipment upgrades and increasing ginning capacity proposals.  In addition, gin managers can use their individual data to compare with the average ginning cost data.  The larger the data set, the better information generated from this survey.
