ATTENTION KANSAS FORAGE SORGHUM GROWERS! WE’RE LOOKING FOR UNITED SORGHUM CHECKOFF PROGRAM BOARD NOMINEES

The Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission, Kansas Grain Sorghum Producers Association, and Kansas Farm Bureau, in compliance with USDA Agricultural Marketing Service process, are seeking candidates for the United Sorghum Checkoff Board (USCP).

The program is funded by an assessment of 0.6 percent of the net market value of grain sorghum and 0.35 percent of the net market value of sorghum forage, silage, hay, haylage and billets. Because of this, the Kansas Forage and Grassland Council is urging forage sorghum growers to consider serving on this board and representing Kansas forage growers.

Two Kansas positions are open. For each vacancy, two candidates must be submitted. The appointments are made by the Secretary of Agriculture at USDA.

We are conducting this search widely and seek assistance identifying any and all interested farmers who want to serve their industry.
