CFS Foundations donates funds for Grain Bin Rescue Equipment to Minnesota Lake Fire Department.
Nov 17, 2022
Yesterday, a small group from CFS met up with the Minnesota Lake Fire Chief to deliver funds that were requested to help purchase grain bin rescue equipment that will benefit the Minnesota Lake community and several neighboring communities.
“As a cooperative business, CFS is committed to our communities and appreciates the volunteers that serve on our local fire and rescue departments,” says Jeff Eckhardt, CFS Board Director. “This contribution was made in an effort to ensure our fire and rescue departments are equipped to handle any emergency that may arise, including grain entrapment and rescue.”

Planting and weather conditions are the name of the game currently. With planting progress looking very favorable and the weather forecast showing above normal temps and below normal precipitation for much of the corn belt all signs point to very good planting conditions. With that, we gave up yesterday’s gains on old crop and put in some new lows on December corn.
