A Note From the General Manager 

With a history dating to 1930, Three Rivers FS is a locally-owned cooperative serving the agronomy, feed, energy, and propane needs of northeast Iowa.  Whether it’s helping our patrons in meeting the world’s need for food, optimizing the performance of on- or off-road engines, ensuring a warm home on a cold winter night, or some other purposeful commitment, Three Rivers FS is passionate about delivering unparalleled value to our patrons.  Our vision, mission, and strategic focus statements speak well to this passion. 

Vision 

To be the trusted advisor for our valued patrons 

Three Rivers FS’s vision is simply what we aspire to be.  We aspire to be that trusted advisor our patrons look to no matter the need.  Maybe it’s advising a crop farmer and helping him realize sustained yield improvement through better seed selection and nutrient management.  Perhaps it’s advising a homeowner through our flexible and convenient home-heat payment plans and finding the one that meets her needs.  Possibly it’s advising a dairy producer on proper rations that promote improved milk production.  Maybe it’s advising the commercial truck operator on Dieselex Gold and seasonal contracting that gives him improved equipment performance and a way to better predict his fuel costs.  We want the patron, no matter his need, to see Three Rivers FS as an extension of his operation or home because Three Rivers FS delivers value-added solutions and results. 

Mission 

To develop relationships and deliver solutions that drive sustainable performance for our patrons and our cooperative 

Our mission statement is our noble purpose – what we do day-to-day in pursuit of our vision.  We are focused on developing relationships – specifically cultivating strong, meaningful connections with our patrons – and then delivering valued solutions that improve our patron’s performance.  In turn, as our patron’s prosper, so will Three Rivers FS in the form of patron loyalty and sustained financial performance.  And through sustained financial results, Three Rivers FS can consistently invest in high-performing personnel and strategic assets and thereby deliver ever-greater value to our patrons going forward. 

Strategic Focus 

To realize a sustained local return on invested capital by providing leading-edge insight, technology and performance to patrons who value the products and services delivered through our strategic assets and high-performing employees 

The strategic focus statement is simply the yardstick we evaluate our strategies and tactics against.  If a strategy or tactic meets criteria outlined in our strategic focus, it’s likely worth pursuing.   

In closing, to our patrons, thank you for your past and future business.  It is a great privilege to serve you.  We know we must earn your business each and every time and we readily embrace the task of doing so.  To those who aren’t patrons, Three Rivers FS welcomes the opportunity to deliver value to you by reducing your risk, improving your profitability, making you more competitive, or making life easier.
