Oklahoma Sorghum Grower Kent Martin Newest Member of Sorghum Checkoff Board

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 15:06:10 CST

Oklahoma Sorghum Grower Kent Martin Newest Member of Sorghum Checkoff Board Four Sorghum Checkoff board directors were sworn in during the December 14, 2016, board meeting in Lubbock, Texas.

Returning to the board are Martin Kerschen of Garden Plain, Kansas, Daniel L. Krienke of Perryton, Texas, and Clayton J. Short of Assaria, Kansas. Newly appointed to the board is Kent Martin of Carmen, Oklahoma. Kathy Brorman of Hereford, Texas, completed her term as a board director.

The newly sworn in board members were appointed by the U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in October and will serve a three-year term.

"It is exciting to have many returning board members, as well as a new board director to work toward the goals of the checkoff," said Sorghum Checkoff CEO Tim Lust. "We are committed to enhancing the sorghum industry by fostering thriving market opportunities to promote producer profitability, and the leadership on the board will serve an integral part in that moving forward."

New leadership was also elected during the December board meeting. David Fremark of St. Lawerence, South Dakota, will serve as chairman, Daniel L. Krienke as vice chairman, Clayton J. Short as secretary, and Verity Ullibarri of McAlister, New Mexico, as treasurer.

"I look forward to working with returning and new officers," said Fremark. "The board represents growers from areas across the Sorghum Belt, and they will all bring forth valuable ideas to promote profitability for sorghum farmers and the industry."
