The International Grains Program collaborated with the U.S. Grains Council and the United Sorghum Checkoff Program to host the USGC/USCP Spanish-Iberian Sorghum Usage Workshop, which focused on best manufacturing practices as well as questions, facts and myths regarding sorghum usage.
The workshop, held Jan. 24 and 25, included twelve participants from Spain and Portugal. “This USGC/USCP-sponsored sorghum utilization workshop was designed to educate grain buyers from Spain and Portugal on the advantages of including sorghum in dairy, poultry and swine diets,” said Jay O’Neil, course coordinator and IGP senior agricultural economist.
