Field to table

As a farmer-owned cooperative, CHS connects growers to consumers around the world. We purchase grain from a network of cooperatives and farmer-owners and match it with the needs of domestic and global food and feed customers in 65 countries. CHS also manufactures and distributes a variety of Cenex® brand energy products and offers crop inputs through wholesale and retail operations in more than 450 communities in the United States to help farmers grow healthy, profitable crops.

CHS at a glance


CHS is a cooperative, which means it’s governed by the farmers and local cooperatives that own it. Our owners have elected 17 full-time farmers or ranchers to serve on the CHS Board of Directors, representing eight regions from across the country. The number of directors representing each region is determined by business volume and the number of farmers, ranchers and cooperatives in the area.

More information about CHS governance can be found in the CHS Articles of Incorporation, CHS Bylaws and the Committee Charters.

CHS covers every base in agriculture to help farmers win. We are proud to lend our name to CHS Field and sponsor the St. Paul Saints, Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Wild and collegiate sports.
