CONNELL, WASHINGTON (February 28, 2014) – About 670 eligible patrons of Connell Grain Growers will share in the distribution of $2.7 million in cash patronage and equity during 2014 based on business they’ve conducted with the company. “We’re extremely proud that once again we can deliver this important benefit of being part of a cooperative business to our customers and owners,” said Scott Althoff, general manager. “One of the most important ways we help producers grow is by delivering an economic return on the business they do with Connell Grain Growers. This – along with the quality seed, crop marketing and services we provide year-round – underscores the added value of being a cooperative system owner and customer.” “Through their ownership in a cooperative like Connell Grain Growers, not only do they have access to products and services, they also share in our success and that of the integrated CHS system. This enables all of us to invest in the future of our local producers, this business and our community.”
In 2013, CHS Harvest for Hunger rallied thousands of CHS employees, customers and partners to collectively raise the equivalent of 3.2 million meals for hungry families, including 740,000 pounds of canned and fresh foods, and $490,000 in cash and grain.
