INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, MINNESOTA, U.S. — CHS, Inc. introduced on Jan. 25 the CHS Center for Cooperative Growth, an online platform that gathers and shares diverse viewpoints from agribusinesses, independent agricultural producers, academia and other leaders to foster greater success among America's cooperatives and their leaders. 
The online platform was launched in October 2012 and features a primary cooperative topic addressed through four perspectives and allows audiences to participate through online polls and a blog.   
"We hope this online resource will break complex cooperative topics into informative content to help cooperative leaders learn and grow," said Lynn Foth, vice-president of market development and strategic alignment for CHS.  Using the resources on this site, visitors will be better informed about the choices their cooperatives have to grow, and remain profitable and sustainable into the future.
This quarter’s ag cooperative expert Michael Boland, Ph.D., professor of agricultural economics, University of Minnesota will talk about equity management.
