Friday Fun Farm Facts--Money

Did you know?

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing depends on farmers to produce paper currency--75% of every bill is made of cotton. (That's why you can launder dollar bills and they don't fall apart, unlike checks.)

One bale of cotton can produce 313,600 $100 bills -- over $31 billion dollars worth!
