CHS Inc., a farmer-owned energy, grains and foods company, has created www.chsag.com to serve farmers selling grain directly to CHS river terminals and processing plants in Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois. The new public Website features cash bids updated every 10 minutes, a powerful charting tool, radar weather and forecasts, futures market overviews, as well as specific location contacts and announcements. These Website features are also available via mobile phones at m.chsag.com.
“CHS knows that farmers want the immediacy and ease of accessing market information and insights electronically,” said Rick Dusek, CHS vice president, grain marketing, North America. “Providing tools and resources like chsag.com is one more way that CHS helps its owners grow.”
CHS buys grain directly from farmers at its river terminals and soybean processing facilities at Davenport, IA; Fairmont, Mankato, Savage and Winona, MN; and Pekin, IL. CHS is a diversified grain company, marketing more than two billion bushels of grain and oilseeds annually to domestic and export customers in 60 countries worldwide.

Farmers selling grain to CHS on a regular basis will also have secure, login access for information about individual shipments, settlement and contract details and transactions.
