GLOBAL GRAIN & PROCESSING
CHS is committed to making a meaningful impact in agriculture and rural America. Through our stewardship initiatives, we invest in programs that develop new generations of ag leaders, promote ag safety and strengthen hometown communities.
Cooperatives are owned and governed by members who use its products, supplies, or services and operate in many sectors of the economy. In a cooperative system, people come together to scale buying power, gain access to goods and services and create economic opportunity.
At CHS, our teams work together to provide the products, services and expertise farmers and cooperatives need to feed a growing population. As a CHS employee, you help empower agriculture by creating connections that bring shared success.
Wheat makes its way overseas
Wheat headed for Taiwan leaves the TEMCO export facility in Portland, Ore.
The vessel named Tres Felices is assisted by a tugboat crew as it exits the TEMCO export terminal at Portland, Ore., filled with soft white wheat and dark northern spring wheat bound for Taiwan.
Located on the Willamette River, the Portland terminal moves 75 million bushels of grain annually to global customers. TEMCO, a joint venture between CHS and Cargill, includes three export terminals — Portland, Ore.; Kalama, Wash.; and Tacoma, Wash. — which provide global market access for growers across the midwestern and western U.S.
In the distance, a snow-capped Mount Hood anchors the Portland community and provides resources and recreation for many.
