The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the appointment of four members to serve on the United Sorghum Checkoff Program's Board of Directors. All four appointees will serve three-year terms starting December 2021 and ending December 2024.

Newly appointed members are:

  • Adam K. Schindler, Reliance, S.D., At-Large Member
  • Macey A. Mueller, Halstead, Kan., Kansas Member
  • Kimberly (Kim) A. Baldwin, McPherson, Kan., Kansas Member
  • Kevin D. Pshigada, Perryton, Texas, Texas Member

The 13-member United Sorghum Checkoff Program Board is composed of nine sorghum farmers who represent the three states with the largest sorghum production - Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas - and four at-large national representatives. More information about the board is available on the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) United Sorghum Checkoff Program webpage and on the board's website, sorghumcheckoff.com.

Since 1966, Congress has authorized the development of industry-funded research and promotion boards to provide a framework for agricultural industries to pool their resources and combine efforts to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets and conduct important research and promotion activities. AMS provides oversight of 22 boards, paid for by industry assessments, which helps ensure fiscal accountability and program integrity.

USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender
