On Sept. 20, 2022, 125 CHS custom applicators gathered at the Raven Industries innovation campus outside of Sioux Falls, S.D., for the CHS Applicator Rodeo. There was no barrel racing or bull riding at this rodeo, but participants did have the opportunity to test new equipment from leading vendors, learn about emerging technologies, show off their skills and celebrate a job well done.
