Congressman Frank Lucas to Keynote Oklahoma Grain Sorghum Meeting in Enid

Wed, 03 Jan 2018 06:22:56 CST

Congressman Frank Lucas to Keynote Oklahoma Grain Sorghum Meeting in Enid The Oklahoma Sorghum Growers Association will be holding its annual meeting Friday January 12th at the Hoover Building at the fair grounds in Enid. “Our meeting coincides with the Enid farm show. It will be a good opportunity for farmers and folks in the agribusiness to attend the meeting, have some lunch, and get to hear a great line up of speakers” said Jordan Shearer Executive Director of the Oklahoma Sorghum Association.


Keynote speakers for the event include Congressman Frank Lucas, J.D. Strong Director of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, Joe Neal Hampton Executive Director of the Oklahoma Wheat Growers and Dr. Josh Lofton OSU extension specialist. The slate of speakers will cover a range of topics ranging from the status of the Farm bill, to programs available to producers, outlook for the State of Oklahoma this coming year, as well as updates on yield variety trials and agronomic advice for the coming year.


“In 2017 we saw some phenomenal yields out in the panhandle but production downstate was mixed due to lack of timely moisture in a lot of cases. Thankfully the sugar cane aphid was not as big of a problem for growers as it had been the previous years.” said Shearer With these incredibly tight margins coupled with low prices Grain Sorghum is still a competitive summer crop for a lot of growers rotations” said Shearer. The basis has improved immensely due to international demand for Sorghum, particularly China, and is currently priced at a premium to corn in Enid.


Those interested in attending the meeting are encouraged to RSVP to Jordan Shearer 405.612.2843 or email jordan@sorghumgrowers.com
