Sorghum replacing corn in western CornBelt?


This is a geographic-limited question, but one I've been curious about. Has there been a move in western areas to replace corn with sorghum? I talked with people at Commodity Classic, and they were talking about sorghum even moving into some areas like Indiana. 


Has there been anything like this in your area?

No sorghum in our area of Iowa that I know of.  Dad tried some 50 years ago and didn't care for it.  I suppose the only market would be the feed mills.
