You name it, Stillwater Milling Company’s got it. In addition to creating quality feed products for cattle, horses, swine, poultry and other animals, Stillwater Milling Company supplies Oklahomans with everything from fencing and livestock equipment, to animal medicines and gardening supplies.
Stillwater Milling Company has a long and fascinating history, but ever since its first expansion into Perry in 1938, growth has been the name of the game. The company now has operations in Davis and Claremore, and opened a new 18,000-square-foot store in October 2017 at the original Stillwater location.
“The new store faces 6th Avenue, so it’s much more visible to customers,” says Pam Gill Moore, company president and Oklahoma native. “The larger store has allowed us to add more products for farmers and ranchers as well as homeowners.”
From Oklahoma State University-themed clothing and accessories to bird feeders and birdseed for outdoor enthusiasts, the store offers something for everyone. Customers can wander through aisles of yard decorations and porch swings, peruse the greenhouse with its myriad of outdoor plants and even pick up bags of feed or minerals in the drive-through.
They carry a wide range of products. Animal feed makes up a substantial portion of the business. Their main focus is beef cattle feed, which they can customize to meet a producer’s specific needs if they are able to purchase a minimum of five tons at a time, Moore says.
“We can also make custom feeds for horses, sheep, goats, emu, deer, quail, chickens, ducks, elk – and even rats,” she says.
Moore says they are proud to be based in Oklahoma and make all their decisions on a local level. They use ingredients that come from as close to Stillwater as possible and rely on research done at OSU and Noble Research Institute to create products which will be profitable to producers within the state.
The company also boasts a long history of supporting local organizations such as 4-H and FFA, volunteering at livestock shows, serving on fair boards and more.
“We try to support farmers and ranchers in need as well as helping in our local towns,” Moore says. “We are a bunch of Oklahomans who like to give back to the communities that make our state a great place to live.”
