A Statement on Mike Beam Announcement – Kansas Dept. of Agriculture

KGSPA President Kent Winter, farmer, Andale, KS:

“Mike Beam is an experienced, well-liked, and admired professional by his peers. His dedication and leadership at KLA is known far and wide to members of that organization.

We thank and wish the best to Kansas Department of Agriculture Secretary Jackie McClaskey. Her leadership team was approachable and receptive, dedicated and successful. McClaskey was an ally in making sure the Governor’s Water Vision was implemented. Resource-conserving crops like sorghum are part of the solution to address the state’s water plan.

Agriculture is the heart of the Kansas economy. We look forward to working with Mr. Beam and the entire administration to advance not only the cause of sorghum but the entire agriculture community.”
