Centennial tour puts focus on ag’s future

A centennial celebration is often seen as an opportunity to look at the past.

Kansas Farm Bureau President Rich Felts says the organization’s three-day centennial tour was an opportunity to look at the future of agriculture.

The final day of the tour included a stop at NuLife Market in Scott City which has become an industry leader in the development of sorghum-based food products.

At the time company CEO and founder Earl Roemer opened the doors of NuLife in 2007 he says there were only four sorghum-based products that could be found on grocery store shelves. Today there are more than 2,000, Roemer told about 20 people who were part of the tour.

It’s this kind of innovation and ability to create a valueadded product which is essential to the future of agriculture in the state, says Felts.
