Kauffman Seeds was started in 1965 by Edward Kauffman as an Alfalfa seed cleaning business. In 1972 Jerry and Lois Wyse started taking over the business from Lois’s dad. At that time, certified wheat was added to the business. The mid-eighties saw the introduction of Soybeans both in production and processing. Seed wheat, alfalfa, and soybeans were the mainstay of the operation. In 1995 Midland Genetics was formed as several seed companies joined forces to launch a breeding program to get ready for the introduction of Roundup Ready Soybeans. Corn, Grain Sorghum, and Forages were added to the selling lines all under the Midland Genetics brand name. In 2005 Tom Clayman and Dustin Miller purchased Kauffman Seeds from Jerry and Lois Wyse. The current ownership has maintained the business as it was and has added cover crops to facilitate more of our customers’ needs.
