Trade Teams Explore U.S. Sorghum Belt
Five trade teams took to the roads to experience sorghum production
Five trade teams took to the roads around Export Sorghum to experience sorghum production and the value chain firsthand while developing relationships with U.S. sorghum farmers and suppliers.
Export Sorghum was a one-day, educational conference on August 26 in Dallas,TX, organized by the United Sorghum Checkoff Program, in coordination with the U.S. Grains Council (USGC), Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission and Texas Grain Sorghum Producers Board.
Buyers learned more about sorghum markets, trade opportunities, contract negotiation, logistics and U.S. sorghum production.
In addition to these market-based discussions, three nutritionists and a dietician discussed the various uses of sorghum for human nutrition, animal feed and pet food in addition to conducting a cooking demonstration.
