Control the chaos of harvest

During the busy harvest season, farms and grain-handling facilities are some of the most dangerous places to work. Slips and falls from ladders, entanglements from augers and PTOs, crushing injuries from grain truck and railroad traffic, grain bin entrapment and engulfment from grain bin entry, and fires and explosions from grain dust accumulation, are just some of the hazards.


Come join CHS Sept. 15th for a Market Update webinar!

Let’s talk grain markets. Join us for a conversation with CHS Hedging experts around grain market outlooks prior to heading into the fields for fall harvest.

On Tuesday, Sept. 15, there will be two different live broadcasts to talk about corn, soybeans and wheat markets.

At 10 a.m. CST on Sept. 15, Steve Wagner and Bryant Sanderson, CHS Hedging experts, will be sharing their perspectives on the current market through the lens of pre-harvest. At noon CST on the same day, Ami Heesch, CHS Hedging, will be sharing wheat market insights.

These sessions will be held on Skype Broadcast. Skype is a web-based meeting so it’s very user friendly for you to join in using your computer, tablet, or phone.

First Shuttle train loaded at CHS Mahnomen

On July 31st we loaded our first full shuttle at CHS Mahnomen.

After many delays, CHS Mahnomen has loaded our first few trains out of the newly expanded Mahnomen shuttle loader. 

The initial trains sent out using our new setup were loaded with less startup problems than anticipated. This can be attributed to using experienced contractors and the great group of people who operate the elevator in Mahnomen. 

The crew, led by location manager Justin Haus, have done a fantastic job learning the proper flow to get trains loaded quickly and safely. We are excited to be able to stay in the community and serve the CHS farmer owners for years into the future!
