This might help keep fuel prices down, considering corn crops are bad this year and ethanol is a Government mandated oxygenating additive.
However, it is likely the diversion of feed crops will cause an increase in the price of livestock (and meat).

Might, but they will have to figure out a way to use the whole plant and not just the seed head.
Since the juice from the stalks of sorghum is not much different than juice from sugarcane, if they don't have a way to process the juice out in the location where it's raised, they will probably be going backwards.
You can't stack wet sorghum for processing later. It will catch on fire.
It will probably cost more to produce than you get out of it.
