The CHS Foundation, the independent giving entity of CHS Inc. (NASDAQ: CHSCP), the nation's leading farmer-owned cooperative, announced today it will contribute $100,000 to the South Dakota Rancher Relief Fund to assist livestock producers in the aftermath of a devastating blizzard earlier this month.

"Ranchers across western South Dakota suffered significant loss of cattle, sheep and other livestock as a result of this storm, the vast majority of which is not covered by insurance or other programs," said William Nelson, president, CHS Foundation. "Through this contribution, we hope to alleviate some of the costly storm affects and support these producers in restoring their lives and livelihoods."

The South Dakota Rancher Relief Fund, which has been endorsed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard, is administered by the Black Hills Area Community Foundation in cooperation with the South Dakota Association of Cooperatives, South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, the South Dakota Cattlemen's Association and the South Dakota Sheep Growers Association. Its goal is to directly benefit livestock producers impacted by the blizzard.

In addition to the contribution, CHS is working directly with its affected producer customers in the region to identify short- and long-term needs for feed and other assistance.
