The Five Rivers Advantage
Because of Five Rivers’ dedication to serving its customers, we are able to
provide exceptional service to a variety of customer types. From one load and hobby
cattle feeders to industrial customers, Five Rivers is well-equipped to meet the
demands of our cattle feeding customers.
Health and Nutrition
. We are focused on improving our health and
nutrition programs, as demonstrated through our investments in industry-leading
veterinary and nutritional consultants, unique compensation programs that reward
our animal health professionals for reducing mortality rates, continuous research
and data analysis geared to improve performance, reduce variation, and adapt to
customers’ needs, and reinvestment of capital to ensure that our facilities
are in top-notch working order.
. We are focused on being good stewards
to our environment through our dedication to ensuring that our facilities are in
positions of leadership within our industry as it concerns environmental regulation,
our very proactive stance to dust control, manure management, runoff control, and
nutrient management, and an advantage that is important to our employees, our operations,
our cattle, our communities, and your cattle as well.
. We are dedicated to improving the beef business by our
2005 gift to Colorado State University of our small pen research facility in Lamar,
Colorado. This created a strong research partnership between a private enterprise
and a land grant institution – one of the first of its kind. This will allow
Five Rivers and Colorado State to expand upon our ongoing commitments of conducting
quality research and providing sound solutions for the opportunities and challenges
of the beef industry.
. We are committed to working closely with our
customers to ensure that their needs are among our top priorities.Our focus is on
treating the customers’ cattle as if they were our own. This focus on service
is present throughout the organization. Since many of our employees also feed cattle,
the concerns and desires of the customer are very well understood.
. As the world’s largest cattle feeder,
we pride ourselves on industry leadership. In addition to excellence in health
and nutrition, environmental stewardship, research, and customer commitment, our
active involvement in trade associations and civic organizations are additional
examples of how Five Rivers values its role as an industry leader.
