Corn and soybean harvest is well underway, and it’s been a good fall. We’re glad to see that progress, although this week’s weather has forced a pause in many areas. We hope you are enjoying a safe, productive season and look forward to speaking with you at the virtual 2020 CHS Annual Meeting on Dec. 3.
Thank you for your business. Please let us know how we can help you complete this season and move into 2021.

During October, CHS is joining cooperatives across the U.S. to celebrate Co-op Month. As part of the cooperative system, CHS is committed to supporting and strengthening owners and communities with diverse ideas, equity and inclusion.
In 2007, Jerry Bryson sold 50 acres of land in Herman, Minnesota to CHS.
Today, this land is home to a new, state of the art elevator complex, which began receiving grain October 13, 2020. In the photo gallery below, Bryson is pictured delivering the first load of grain into the new elevator. This is Bryson’s last harvest, as he plans to retire from farming after this fall.
The new elevator complex has an RFID card reader system for swift delivery and includes three 25,000 bushel/hour receiving pits. At 132 feet tall, 8 main silos along with additional smaller bins offer 1.45 million bushels of upright storage space.
Area farmers have already begun delivering to the new elevator. Take a quick watch of this video taken during construction, which gives an idea of the traffic pattern new grain deliveries will be taking to enter the elevator.
