The peer-nominated Stutsman STRIVEr program celebrates employees who embrace the core values and truly serve fellow employees, customers, and community members for success. Miguel’s hard work during the peak of NH3 season helped serve our customers for success!
“The week of April 6th, NH3 application and delivery hit its peak for this spring. Many customers and sales people were hauling full tanks out and bringing back empties to be filled. During this time, Miguel regularly worked overtime to make sure tanks were full and ready for the field. On more than one occasion, he exceeded expectations by filling tanks until 9:30 pm, then returned again the next day before 5 am. Thanks to Miguel’s hard work, we had full tanks ready to go for the morning rush.”

Stutsman Core Values
Set the Bar Higher
The agriculture industry’s core foundation is based on innovation and adaptation. In order to stay at the forefront of the industry and continue to grow as a company, it is imperative that we remain open to new ideas, concepts, and methods with optimism. By being proactive and challenging the status quo, we can continue to move the standard in the right direction.
Take the Lead
No matter the task, no matter the position, we have an attitude of ownership and a sense of initiative. The ability to make decisions with the company’s well-being in mind, as well as having the accountability to follow through with getting the job done, are traits conducive to success. Taking the lead includes questioning actions that are not consistent with our mission and values.
Attitudes are extremely contagious, so it is crucial we have ones worthy of catching. By being a “carrier” for optimism and enthusiasm we create an enjoyable and rewarding atmosphere.
Being authentic is not just about being true to ourselves but upholding integrity in every aspect of life. Being honest, doing the right thing, and holding ourselves accountable in all that we say and do are true measures of a genuine person and company.
Maximizing teamwork and communication across the entire company is essential to overall success. By keeping our communication open and honest while breaking down internal barriers, we can foster unity, understanding, and overall productivity. After all, “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” -Henry Ford.
In 1934 Eldon Stutsman made service the cornerstone of the company, and after all this time, exceptional service still defines who we are. Whether it’s our co-workers, our vendors, or especially our customers, we are driven to exceed their expectations.
