Term of Oklahoma Sorghum Checkoff Director Comes to a Close

Thu, 15 Dec 2011 10:17:59 CST

Term of Oklahoma Sorghum Checkoff Director Comes to a Close The terms of inaugural Sorghum Checkoff board members Billy Bob Brown of Panhandle, Texas, Louise Rigdon of Blackwell, Okla., James Vorderstrasse or Hebron, Neb., and Gary Kilgore of Chanute, Kan., came to a close after the organization's board meeting Dec. 13-14 in Lubbock, Texas.

The Sorghum Checkoff would like to thank outgoing directors for their dedication and service for the past three years. The experience, knowledge and passion of the board of directors drives the producer-funded organization and the sorghum industry into the future.

The Sorghum Checkoff board of directors is made up of sorghum producers representing the largest sorghum producing states in the Sorghum Belt. These producers are nominated by their qualified state organizations (QSO) and are appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture to serve the sorghum industry.

Each director serves a three-year term and may serve up to two terms. The Sorghum Checkoff will welcome three new directors to its board in December. These directors were nominated by their state boards and associations and selected by the Secretary of Agriculture to serve their fellow sorghum producers in moving the industry forward.

For more information about becoming a Sorghum Checkoff director, contact your state board or as- sociation. For a list of qualified state organizations visit the Sorghum Checkoff website.
