The article reports that the Georgia Cotton Commission coordinated and hosted a "Cotton Harvesting, Ginning, Warehousing and Quality Improvement Seminar" for members of the Georgia Textile Manufacturers Association on November 3-4, 2004. The tour was a good opportunity for the Commission to show the customers in the textile industry the dedication to producing, for their consumption, high quality fiber. Highlights of the tour were to observe harvesting and moduling cotton on McLendon-Webb Farms in Leary, Georgia. Then it was on to McClesky Cotton Co. in Bronwood where the group was given a first-hand look at the function of a state-of-the-art gin and warehousing facility, courtesy of the hosts, Ronnie Lee and Ron Lee.
