Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Effective February 1, 2012, CHS Inc. ("CHS") and Cargill, Incorporated ("Cargill") entered into an Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement (the "Amended and Restated LLC Agreement") to expand the scope of the original Limited Liability Company Agreement dated August 26, 2002 between CHS and Cargill (the "LLC Agreement"). Pursuant to the terms of the Amended and Restated LLC Agreement, the parties agreed to commit to sell all of their feedgrains, wheat, oilseeds and by-product origination that are tributary to the Pacific Northwest, United States ("Pacific Northwest") to TEMCO, LLC and to use TEMCO, LLC as their exclusive export-marketing vehicle for such grains exported through the Pacific Northwest. Pursuant to the Amended and Restated LLC Agreement, Cargill’s Tacoma, Washington facility will continue to be subleased to TEMCO, LLC and, additionally, CHS agreed to sublease its Kalama, Washington facility to TEMCO, LLC and Cargill agreed to lease its Irving facility in Portland, Oregon to TEMCO, LLC to provide TEMCO, LLC with more capacity to conduct this business.

The term of the Amended and Restated LLC Agreement is 25 years beginning February 1, 2012 unless earlier terminated or extended by the written mutual agreement of the members. The Amended and Restated LLC Agreement provides that the agreement will be terminated and TEMCO, LLC dissolved, upon the occurrence of certain events as further described in the agreement.

The Amended and Restated LLC Agreement includes other provisions regarding the management and conduct of the business of TEMCO, LLC, the maintenance of capital accounts and the allocation of gains and losses between the members, indemnification, confidentiality, non-disclosure, non-solicitation and non-use that were unchanged from the original LLC Agreement.

Besides the Amended and Restated LLC Agreement, CHS and Cargill have a wheat milling business relationship through its joint venture named Horizon Milling as is further described in CHS’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2011. CHS holds a 24% ownership interest with Cargill owning the remaining 76% interest.

The description of the Amended and Restated LLC Agreement in this Current Report on Form 8-K is qualified in its entirety by reference to the copy of the Amended and Restated LLC Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
