Spring Update from General Manager

I would like to thank all of our customers for your business.  Spring has definitely been busy.  The planting season was good this year by giving most of you about a 3 week window to get the majority of your crops planted.  That also meant our agronomy personnel put in some long hours.  Thank you for your patience as we worked to take care of everyone’s needs in such a short time frame.  Even though we prepare throughout the winter for spring season by doing maintenance and repairs on equipment, inevitably something will break down.  We had a few of those which caused some delays to get things operational again, but the employees stepped up to the task. 

Because of the compressed planting season we are also anticipating a compressed window for side-dressing applications, and have lined up extra equipment to help with that demand.  Our agronomy staff wants to give you the best possible service.  Any advanced notice you can provide will help them make sure you get your product when you need it.  We will again be working long hours to take care of you.

All other departments have been busy as well.  Along with spring planting comes increased diesel fuel demand.  Sometimes those drivers get forgotten, but the crops can not get planted without diesel fuel to run the tractors.  With the recent drop in prices, it may be a good time to look at contracting diesel for your future needs. 

Even though summer is just starting, we encourage you to plan for next winter’s heating needs.  Our propane contracts will be coming out in a few weeks.  We will have several contracting and budgeting options for you to choose from.  We should have a program that fits your needs.  If you have any questions, please contact our office at (800) 924-6677 and one of our Certified Energy Specialists will get back to you.

June is Dairy Month.  Everyone has been impacted by COVID-19, but our dairy farmers have been especially hit hard.  Let’s all remember to drink an extra glass of milk or enjoy some extra cheese to support Wisconsin’s dairy farmers.

We have all been impacted by COVID-19.  At CHS Larsen Co-op we are taking extra steps to protect our employees, our customers, and the communities we serve.  We have put in place extra cleaning procedures, changed access to some areas of the cooperative, and tried to reduce touchpoints as much as possible while continuing to give good customer service.  Thank you for working with us as we navigate through this time.  With all of us doing our part, we can help protect each other.

David Neal
