PCCA’s Board Member for District 2, Kody Carson, is expanding his contribution to agriculture beyond the cotton industry by serving as the Chairman of the Board for the National Sorghum Producers. Carson hails from Olton, Texas, a small town in the Texas Panhandle. His family has been established there since the 1930s and he has been farming since the 1980s. Carson graduated with his bachelor’s degree from West Texas A&M University and his master’s from Texas Tech University. He joined the PCCA Board in 2018 and serves on the board at Ag Producers Co-op in Olton. Carson enjoys giving back to his community and the agricultural industry as a whole.
“Farmers are pretty independent thinkers, and it is hard to get three of them to agree on much of anything,” he said, “but I love the way the co-op is set up where you have a board of directors from different communities, different geographical sectors, and different ways of thinking. I also like the fact that not everyone agrees in the board room. I like having different ages, the different sizes of farms represented, and I like the whole dichotomy of bringing it together from different perspectives to a consensus that is beneficial to everyone.”
