Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has appointed five members who will be a part of the United Sorghum Checkoff Program Board.
These producers have been appointed for a period of three-year terms: Klint Stewart, Columbus, Nebraska; Carlton Bridgeforth, Decatur, Alabama; Verity Ulibarri, Melrose, New Mexico; Shayne Suppes, Scott City, Kansas; and Charles Ray Huddleston, Celina, Texas.
Perdue believes the work being done in the program is critical to the U.S. farm industry and the American economy.
There are 13 sorghum farmers on the United Sorghum Checkoff Program board. The seats for largest production are five in Kansas, three in Texas and one in Oklahoma.
