Serving the
    American Sheep Industry

Since 1918

Where It All Began...


THE HISTORY OF THE MIDSTATE WOOL GROWERS is rich with producer involvement. From the beginning in 1918, where producers wanted a better price for their wool, right up to today when producers designed one of the most technologically advanced warehouses in the world, the organization's driving force has always been to meet the needs of the American sheep producer. Throughout the years, producers have served on the Board of Directors and have always tried to be on the cutting edge of sheep-producer service. From its beginnings in 1918 when a handful of producers got together with an idea, to today's 10,000 farmer/owners marketing 6 million pounds from 23 states, Mid-States has always been a visible example of what producers working together can accomplish. Take a look at what we have accomplished throughout the years.
