CHS is the largest farmer- and rancher-owned cooperative in the U.S. and provides the stuff farmers need to grow crops--fuel and farm supplies--and then buys growers' harvests to either sell or process. In 2016 CHS saw its revenues drop 12% to $30.3 billion, the product of lower prices for the grain, fertilizer, and energy products that comprise the majority of its business. It's keeping a tight fist on expenses and staffing as it invests in key areas, from a new coker at its refinery in Kansas to a replaced fuel pipeline that serves Minnesota and the Dakotas.
