Kopper Kutter Joins National Sorghum Producers Industry Partner Program

LUBBOCK, Texas (April 17, 2024)— National Sorghum Producers (NSP) is pleased to announce Kopper Kutter, home of the original alternative rotary rowcrop option (ARRO®) header conversion, has joined the NSP Industry Partner program as a Partner Level sponsor.

“We’re excited to welcome Kopper Kutter LLC as a Partner Level sponsor,” NSP Industry Relations Director Jamaca Battin said. “Kopper Kutter’s ARRO® corn head conversion system offers sorghum farmers innovative solutions to streamline sorghum harvesting operations, ultimately contributing to increased productivity and cost savings for our growers.”

Kopper Kutter’s ARRO® corn head conversion system is a game-changer in agricultural technology, providing corn head conversions that simplify harvesting operations for grain sorghum producers. With minimal maintenance requirements and the ability to cut through various crops efficiently, ARRO® enables sorghum farmers to maximize productivity and save on operational costs.

“National Sorghum Producers represents a viable group of U.S. farmers, many who, frankly, receive limited annual rainfall across the High Plains,” Kopper Kutter Marketing Manager Alan VanNahmen said. “This partnership epitomizes collaboration between industry and sorghum producers to maximize technology, particularly in an area impacted by reductions in the Ogallala Aquifer, by using Kopper Kutter ARRO® head conversions to upgrade used original equipment manufacturer corn heads to harvest more sorghum faster with better machine efficiency. It’s inspiring to be involved with progressive leadership at NSP and produce positive solutions for sorghum farmers.”

Kopper Kutter was formed by Kyle Kopper, Alan VanNahmen and Randy Burns in 2016 with the mindset that “necessity is the mother of invention.” Their patented ARRO® conversion removes worn out parts and replaces them with ARRO® kits consisting of new deck plates, chain guides and dual disk blades rotationally driven by the existing drive sprockets, gathering chains and spring loaded idlers.
