The U.S. Grains Council just published its 2021/2022 Sorghum Quality Report. For the third year in a row, U.S. sorghum was, on average, graded above necessary requirements for U.S. No. 1, according to the report. Protein content in sorghum was up eight percent year over year, at 11.3 percent, up slightly from last year’s crop. Paige Stevenson, USGC manager of global trade, says, “In a market environment where protein demand is high, every percentage point counts in animal diets.” The report, funded through the Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service Agricultural Trade Promotion program, provides international customers and others accurate, unbiased information about the 2021 U.S. sorghum crop. To generate the report’s findings, a total of 97 samples were collected from 13 participating elevators located in Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota between September 20, 2021, and February 16, 2022. The samples were analyzed by the Amarillo Grain Exchange and the Cereal Quality Lab at Texas A&M University.
