CHS Inc. have elected a Wisconsin farmer to a three-year term on the company's Board of Directors and re-elected four other producers to new three-year terms as directors of the nation's leading farmer-owned cooperative and global energy, grains and foods company.

David Bielenberg has been elected to a fifth one-year term as chairman of the board of CHS Inc.

The elections took place during the 2016 CHS Annual Meeting in Minneapolis. CHS directors must be full-time farmers or ranchers to be eligible for election to the 17-member board.

Newly elected director Mark Farrell of Cross Plains succeeds Robert Bass who retired after 22 years. Farrell has served as a director for what is now Premier Cooperative of Mt. Horeb, Wis., since 1992, including four years as chairman. He operates a 4000 acre corn, wheat and soybean farm.

Re-elected to the CHS Board were Dennis Carlson, Alan Holm, Randy Knecht, and Steve Riegel.

Delegates also approved amendments to the CHS Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. The amendments created a new membership class structure and criteria.
