In the development of a wheat country or any
grain growing section the marketing features are of
most vital importance. Without closeby markets
the farmers are to such an expense in their efforts to
realize from their production that their entire profit
is consumed. .
It is then to the Hays City Flour Mills that much
credit goes for the making of this section of Western
Kansas such a successful wheat growing one. The
mill has maintained a steady and substantial market
since its establishment in 1908 and has provided ele
vators along the Union Pacific railroad both east and
west of Hays, for the purpose of buying and shipping
of grain which is all shipped to Hays and grounded
into the now growing famous Kansas Hard Wheat
Flour.
The mill is one of the largest and most modern
in the wheat growing sections of Western Kansas. It
was originally constructed at an approximate cost
of $150,000.00. The very best modern milling ma
chinery to be secured anywhere on the market was
installed at the time of its construction and has been
added to from time to time as scientific improvements
were perfected.
Today there is not a brand of flour in this sec
tion as well known as Semolino, which is as perfect
a flour as can be found on the market and milled here
by expert millers who have spent a lifetime in the
milling business.
Through such progressive institutions as the
Hays City Flour Mills the Kansas Hard Wheat "Flour
has been placed on a much higher plain. For many
years Kansas Hard Wheat or any other hard wheat
was not considered as good for flour as some of the
soft wheats milled by the larger nationally known
milling institutions of the United States. The World
War served to show the people of the United States
the superiority of hard wheat flour and since that
time its popularity has been growing.
The reader may get some idea of the importance
of this institution to the wheat growing industry in
this section of Kansas and throughout the wheat belt
when it is stated that last year 1,125,000 bushels of
wheat were ground into flour and its by-products.
From this amount of wheat 250,000 barrels of flour
were produced as well as many pounds of the other
products manufactured which include bran, shorts,
corn meal. The plant has a capacity of 1,000 barrels
every twentyfour hours and is under ordinary condi
tions operating to its full capacity day and night.
Located on the right of way of the Union Pacific rail
road and within half a block of the station this mam
moth industrial institution makes a very favorable
metropolitan appearance to travelers on the main
line of this railroad.
The Hays City Mills maintains buying grain ele
vators at Walker, Victoria, Toulon, Hays, Hogback,
Ellis, Riga, Ogallah, Collyer, WaKeeney, Park, Oak
ley, which in itself shows the importance of the insti
tution for the maintenance of a market. All wheat is
graded at each elevator and choice wheat varieties
are selected for the mill. The work of construction
of a $40,000.00 concrete elevator at Collyer has just
recently been completed.
In addition to its many other advantages to the
upbuilding of the city and Western Kansas this insti
tution employs at all times from twenty-five to thirty
men in the mill proper and eight men in the offices,
which gives the city one of its largest payrolls which
amounts to approximately $5,000 monthly.
The smallest amount of the product manufac
tured at this mill is distributed in Hays or approx
imately two and one-half per cent while the balance
is shipped to other Kansas points, eastern states and
some goes to export. Taken all in all this is one of
the largest and most successful industrial plants
along the Union Pacific railroad between Salina and
Denver and is a credit to the city and county wherein
it is located.
