First of all, I want to thank our current members, and specifically the names listed above, for their generous support of the National Sorghum Producers. Our list of Legislative Champion and Partner Members has grown significantly over the past year, and we cannot thank you enough for believing in NSP and the work we do on behalf of sorghum farmers and the sorghum industry day-in and day-out.
It goes without saying this past year has been tough for everyone both on the farm and off. However, our blessings in this country are still much too numerous to count, and sorghum is providing a much-needed silver lining. I hope when farmers join me in thinking about our crop—the $5.00+ prices we are seeing in many areas of the Sorghum Belt, the new herbicide technologies that are close to hitting the market, the assistance payments and a few other wins finally coming to fruition—they are happy with the results of our work.
If you are one of these farmers and have not joined our organization yet, I hope you will strongly consider doing so. We need your membership, and, more importantly, we need your voice. Every dollar and every voice counts, and you can take my word we will always keep your best interest at heart. Our industry and our country are facing a lot of change in 2021, and I hope we can count on you to help us continue championing your cause and providing value to you. Will you join us?
Kody Carson, NSP Board Chairman
