CHS finished its fiscal year with net income of $422 million, down from 2019 net income of nearly $830 million. The poor weather conditions one year ago was one factor. CHS President and CEO Jay Debertin says the current fall season was a very different story. “Our fall fertilizer season is the best we’ve had since 2015.” The coronavirus pandemic hurt CHS’ energy and Ventura Foods business. The agriculture side of the cooperative’s business has been supported by strong export demand. “Trains and barges are running heavy and we’re loading ships almost continuously and moving product robustly.” CHS held its annual meeting virtually this past week.
