Tobacco

Taylor Ray Amos, 28, center, flips a bale of tobacco with temporary workers Jose Luis Galarza Zuniga, left, and Jose Manuel Hernandez Herrera, right, on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014 to load onto a lift that will place it onto a trailer. Amos had about thirteen workers from Mexico helping him that morning, packing anywhere from 630 to 800 pounds of flue-cured tobacco in one bale. They made about 12 bales of tobacco in the morning before heading back into the field to pick more tobacco. He has about less than half of his tobacco fields to harvest.
