CHS assumes full ownership of Montana grain joint venture
HAVRE – CHS Inc., a farmer-owned cooperative, announced it will assume full ownership of the limited liability company it has operated with ADM in northcentral Montana since 2001. The company currently operates grain elevator shuttle facilities in Havre and Big Sandy, which handle 9-11 million bushels of wheat annually.
The facilities are now part of CHS Big Sky, based out of Kershaw.
“We are excited to bring these additional services to our customers,” said Keith Schumacher, general manager, CHS Big Sky. “We’ve been focused on how we can continue to add value for farmers and ranchers here in central Montana. This expands our grain capabilities and brings better market opportunities – as well as full patronage – for current patrons of the LLC. It’s just a great fit.”
CHS Big Sky is an integrated ag retailer serving Montana farmers and ranchers from 18 locations across 17 counties. It is part of CHS Inc., a global agribusiness owned by farmers, ranchers and cooperatives across the United States.
