Fort Morgan, CO, busy unloading cottonseed & Z-Train
Author: cozephyr

Ecker’s Grain was off loading cottonseed when BNSF 5164 East with warbonnet BNSF 775 sped past Fort Morgan, Colorado, 18 November 2020.  Train was the Z-train from Denver, CO, headed for Chicago, Illinois.  NO sound video.

Feeding whole cottonseed to beef cattle can be an economical and effective way to supplement energy, fat, and protein in their diets.

As cotton is ginned, lint, debris, and cottonseed are separated. In this process, small amounts of lint remain attached to the whole cottonseed, giving the seed a fuzzy appearance. This linted whole cottonseed is used directly as a feed supplement or is further processed into cotton-related products.

Whole cottonseed can be easily fed to cattle as a protein and energy supplement. It is readily available at many gins and commodity feed suppliers throughout the Southeast and other cotton-producing areas of the United States.

Some offloads use a vacuum system to empty the cars, much neater operation.
