A bale of cotton isn't what it used to be...

That's about 11 tons of raw cotton under that tarp, enough to make about 3,000 pairs of jeans. And that's not loose cotton, a machine called a module builder forms that by hydraulically compacting the picked cotton. A significant portion of the weight is cotton seeds, which yield cottonseed oil for cooking as well as meal that is used for livestock feed and seed hulls which can also be fed, as roughage.
