Leadership Sorghum program helps farmers take the lead

Fifteen members of the first class of Leadership Sorghum, sponsored by the United Sorghum Checkoff Program, recently completed the program’s first year.

Seeking to develop the next generation of leaders in the sorghum industry, the program exposed Class I to various aspects of the industry, and the program is important for the future of sorghum.

“Leadership development is an important focus for the future success of any organization and industry,” Lindsay Kennedy, external affairs director for the checkoff, said. “The sorghum industry has been blessed over the years with excellent grower leaders who have helped move U.S. sorghum forward.”
