As a third generation seedsmen, Scott Seed has remained one of the leaders in the seed trade industry since its founding by, Ira Scott, one of the pioneers of seed production. Ira and his wife, Leona Fay, came to Deaf Smith County from a ranch in Happy, Texas. He set up a farming and ranching operation in Deaf Smith County and soon followed with a seed company. The first location of Scott Seed was on Chalk Hill near Summerfield where a short time later he moved the business to Hereford.
When the company first began, Mr. Scott grew open pollinated milo and a short time later included the first hybrids in Texas as well. He started bagging seed in 100 pound burlap bags and distributed them to south Texas.
In 1971, Betty and Gary Kriegshauser, his daughter and son-in-law, bought the business from Ira and kept the name that had served this community and the world.
