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.
CHS supports grain bin safety
CHS provides grain bin safety equipment and training to local fire departments.
Each year, about 29 people die from grain bin entrapments in the U.S., according to a report from Purdue University.
In an effort to prevent those deaths, the CHS Seeds for Stewardship program has provided more than $202,000 in grants and matches for grain bin safety equipment and training since 2018.
In addition, CHS provides financial support to Nationwide Agribusiness, which has provided rescue tubes and grain entrapment training to 272 fire departments across 31 states since 2014.
That support means the world to Joey Greibrok, a third-generation farmer and CHS customer near Glenville, Minn., whose father was rescued from a grain bin by the Clarks Grove Fire Department and five other local departments. Emergency responders used a rescue tube – and training on how to use that equipment – provided by Nationwide. “It’s unbelievable how fast they showed up,” Greibrok says in the video below. “You could tell they were trained. They knew what to do. They didn’t panic."
