Robert (Bob) Lee Koehn, Jr.
Montezuma - Robert Lee (Bob) Koehn, Jr. passed away peacefully and surrounded by his family on Tuesday, September 13 in Garden City, after battling cancer.

Although he held other titles throughout his life, Bob was most proud of “husband,” “dad,” “Gramps,” (or as Rylee says, “Framps”) and “farmer.” He was born in Sublette on July 5, 1956 to Robert and Betty Koehn, and raised on their farm, where he developed his tremendous work ethic and would farm all his life. He graduated from Montezuma High School in 1974 and married Kathy Moore in 1978 in Dodge City. Bob enjoyed all types of racing including go-karts, dirt track, and NASCAR. He loved building things, model trains, and traveling with good friends. He could fix anything, and was known throughout the community for his willingness to lend a hand anywhere he was needed. He was always humble and often quiet, but ready with an ornery joke at any time.

Graveside service will be held at Morningside Cemetery, Montezuma on Saturday September 17, 2016 at 10:00 AM. Visitation will be at Swaim Funeral Chapel, Montezuma on Friday September 16, 2016 from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM with the family receiving friends from 4:00-6:00 PM. Memorials are suggested to MD Anderson Melanoma and Skin Center or Fort Hays State University Department of Agriculture in care of the funeral home. Thoughts and memories may be shared in the online guest book at Click to read more...



CHS is happy to introduce its next iteration of the CHS Pro Advantage contract.  We are now ready to launch contracts for Hard Red Winter Wheat and Soft Red Winter Wheat for the 2017 and 2018 crop years. 

CHS Pro Advantage is a product that will allow a grower to pledge a specific number of bushels delivered to your location with the professionals at the CHS-owned Russell Consulting Group doing the pricing of those bushels over a specific timeframe.

Growers will have the ability to sign-up new crop 2017 and new crop 2018 bushels between August 8th and August 29th. Bushels enrolled in the program will be professionally priced between September 6th 2016 and May 19th for 2017 crop bushels and between September 6th 2016 and May 18th, 2018 for 2018 crop bushels.

The settlement price to the grower will be based on the performance of the futures and options hedges and trades that will be made in a separate account within CHS. At settlement, a book transfer will be executed giving you a short futures position in your CHS Hedging brokerage account at the settlement price less the grower’s fee.

The cost of this program to the grower will be 10 cents per bushel for bushels enrolled in the 2017 program, and 12 cents per bushel for bushels enrolled in the 2018 program. Your company/cooperative will receive 4 cents per bushel of the grower fee as an administrative charge for the operation of the grain merchandising activities.  This is in addition to any normal elevations associated with handling the physical grain. We will provide you with hard copies of an addendum that you will use to attach to your standard grain purchase contract. This addendum will specify the legal obligations of this contract between you and your grower.

What switching to sales is really like

By |  August 3, 2016

Golfdom EIC Seth Jones sits down with five friends of the magazine to ask them why they left their jobs as superintendents, and if you should, too.

Gentlemen, thanks for taking the time. First, let me introduce everyone.

Ryan Bourne is from my home state, Kansas, and has worked at three great clubs in the Sunflower State: Wichita CC, Dodge City CC, and most recently, Terradyne CC, where he was superintendent for eight years. Last year he left his job to sell fertilizer for Pride Ag Resources (, based in Dodge. He’s also a K-State fan, but he roots for the Royals as well, so he’s good by me. Read more.............
