Third company to join new model within first month of launch
11 May 2021
Landus, a farmer-owned cooperative, and Mid State Milling Inc, an independent feed mill operator, announced on May 11 a collaboration agreement. Mid State Milling is the first feed and third company overall to join the Landus optimization model within the span of one month.
“The diversity of the first three businesses joining us on this journey of optimizing ag retail demonstrates the universal applicability of the model,” said Matt Carstens, Landus president and CEO. “We welcome the addition of Mid State Milling to help maximize feed infrastructure, grain supply and operational excellence for the benefit of farmers.”
As part of the agreement, Doug Riese, president of Mill State Milling, will maintain his current role while also lending his feed operations expertise to the Landus feed team on a part-time basis.
