CHS Larsen Cooperative is excited to announce its latest acquisition of the former Pinnacle Ag/ADM facility on Stockton Road just east of Stevens Point. In addition to dry fertilizer products, the cooperative plans on marketing liquid fertilizer, crop protection products and seed to growers in the area.
“This facility fits well into our long-range growth plan to serve the area with our full line of agronomy products,” says David Neal, general manager, CHS Larsen.
In addition to the agronomy staples of fertilizer, crop protection products and seed, the cooperative also features a full line of precision ag products and services as well as grower input financing. In past years, CHS has only been able to offer feed, grain and energy products in the area. The addition of the Stockton facility will tie all the pieces together, allowing CHS to offer its complete line of products and services to area growers.
“As a cooperative, we are always looking for ways to help our owners grow and provide better service to them,” says Neal. “In order to do this, we’ve decided we need to expand our service area and facilities as well. By adding the Stockton facility to our existing agronomy outlets, we will be able enhance our distribution options during the fast-paced planting season when secure supply and logistics are critical to all growers. The physical location of the plant along the I-39 and Highway 10 corridor gives us excellent, efficient logistical options to both the central and northeastern Wisconsin markets that we now serve.”
The CHS Stockton facility is well situated to earn local growers’ business by offering traditional and proprietary products that will enhance yield through personalized local service which every grower expects and deserves.
