This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

A generational farmer, Bill Meadows of Mountain States Oilseeds Company always knew he wanted to stay in farming, with the goal to grow his family farm. So, he went to the University of Idaho where he studied agronomy and learned to manage pathogens in the soil while growing crops without chemicals. He discovered how to double his farm’s yield and introduced three new crops into Idaho, which he is shipping around the world.

Mountain States Oilseeds Company is a leading supplier world-wide for safflower, mustard and flaxseed. Safflower is used to make cooking oil; however, Bill learned the importance of diversifying early on and developed a market in bird food that remains strong today. The mustard seed Mountain States produces is sold across the U.S., Central America, Asia and Europe, and Bill is proud of how his mustard seed is top quality. In any grocery store across the U.S., there’s a strong likelihood the mustard seed came from Mountain States Oilseeds Company.

In addition to selling flaxseed to health food companies around the world, Mountain States Oilseeds Company also sells brown flax to pet food producers because it has health benefits for our animals too, like better weight control and a producing a glossy coat.
