With an early harvest, the contractors and managers working on the Joel project were sweating. But team work paid off and they started the new elevator a few days before the combines started to roll. And the results are truly impressive! With a leg running better than expected (better than 15,000 bushels per hour), trucks are barely stopping to unload. And a new scale and “One-Weigh” system are speeding up accuracy and back office processing time. At CHS Primeland, we are serious about investing in our infrastructure to make sure we are relevant into the future.
Harvest is in full swing through out the CHS Primeland trade area. Favorable weather has helped farmers progress along well.
Each year, CHS Primeland awards six $750 scholarships to area high school seniors who are attending a college or trade school. Each applicant is required to submit an essay outlining how their chosen career will positively impact agriculture in the future. Congratulations to the following outstanding students: Tyler Watson, Asotin; Morgan Howard, Nezperce; Stephani Linderman, Troy; Dillion Blair, Kendrick; Gabe Wright, Troy and Adrianne Nuxoll, Clearwater.
