Forest City native Tyler Runneberg joined Farmers Coop Association’s agronomy team on October 12, 2015, and works from the Forest City location. Prior to coming back home to work for his hometown coop, Tyler worked as a custom applicator for FC at their Rake, Iowa, location.
“I’m looking forward to being in my hometown coop, serving customers here and learning new things in the ag industry,” Tyler stated. “This is more of a full service organization with agronomy, grain, petroleum, and feed. It’s an old school coop, still providing all the farm services people need.”
Tyler grew up on an acreage near Forest City and had friends whose families farmed, giving him an appreciation for the work. “There’s always new challenges, always new things to learn,” he remarked. “It’s nice to work in my home community and my hometown elevator.”
When he’s not working, Tyler enjoys being outdoors including hunting and fishing. He lives west of Forest City.
