01 May 20242 min reading

CHS, a leading global agribusiness owned by farmers, ranchers and cooperatives across the United States, has signed an intent to purchase agreement for eight grain assets in five states from Cargill. 

With this purchase, CHS aims to continue optimizing its enterprise supply chain while providing market access and end-to-end value to owners. This purchase adds key grain facilities to the CHS enterprise supply chain, connecting CHS farmer-owners to the global marketplace. Assets included in the sale are in Pipestone and Maynard, Minn.; Morris and Seneca, Ill.; Holdrege, Neb.; Cheyenne Wells and Byers, Colo.; and Parker, SD.

“Our farmer-owners look to CHS to provide them with local assets that have the speed and space to serve their needs today and into the future,” says Rick Dusek, executive vice president of ag retail, distribution and transportation for CHS. “Purchasing these grain assets is part of a larger strategy to invest in our enterprise supply chain, efficiently connecting our owners to the global marketplace.”

In its media statement, Cargill said: “Cargill and CHS have a strong partnership today based on shared values, strategic alignment and an effective and efficient business model, making CHS the right partner for this sale.” The purchase is tentatively planned to close in early June 2024.
