CFS Grain Advisor Pete Courteau Participates in Tour

Aug 09, 2021

On 8/3, Pete Courteau, CFS Grain Marketing Advisor, had an opportunity to attend an event at Felton Farm in Northfield, MN. The event included several politicians; Minnesota State Senator for District 58, Zach Duckworth, candidate for Congress Tyler Kistner, running against Angie Craig and U.S. Congressman Michael Cloud, 27th District in Texas, and Ag Committee Member. The above and others boarded a bus to tour the area farms. Discussions during the tour included the estate tax proposed by the current administration, along with other policies and their impacts.  Stops included Syngenta Seed, River Country Coop & Square Deal Dairy, run by the Otte family. See below for our peek into one of Otte’s cow barns. Here Mr. Otte talked about the various government policies that affect their operation. We also stopped at the CFS Randolph grain facility, where Pete shared information about CFS and the Randolph facility. During the visit, Pete discussed the effects of increased taxes on opportunities to reinvest in the company and its employees to continue to serve our cooperative members.
