The Ray Schultz Achievement Award began in 2020 in memory of Ray Schultz, founder of Mustang Seed in Madison. This award is given annually to a Mustang Seeds team member dedicated to helping the customers and the company succeed.

Corey Strom, Red Horse Crop Insurance manager, is the 2021 recipient of the Ray Schultz Award.

Strom was key in starting the Red Horse Crop Insurance division at Mustang Seeds in 2017. He has grown the insurance division from one agent to three and has tripled the number of acres insured in four years.

His commitment to Mustang Seeds started when he was 17, when Mustang Seeds was Domestic Seed and Supply. Over the years, he has done most duties, including throwing bags, spraying chemicals, selling seed and more.

“Corey is dedicated to the growth of Mustang Seeds with the Crop Insurance division, and he continues to work hand in hand with our DSM’s using his knowledge of seed products to help grow their seed sales. We are pleased the selection committee chose Corey as the recipient of this award in honor of my father,” said Terry Schultz, CEO of Mustang Seeds.

“I have had the privilege of working for the Schultz family for over 19 years, first Ray Schultz and now Terry Schultz,” said Strom. “It started with a scholarship in 1995 from Domestic Seed and Supply, now known as Mustang Seeds Inc., and being a friend of the Schultz family ever since. I truly enjoy working for a family-owned company that lets all of us put our families first. There is plenty of employees worthy of the Ray Schultz Achievement Award. I am honored to receive this award and look forward to many more years at Mustang Seeds.”

Mustang Seeds has a complete lineup of seed corn, soybeans and small grains suitable for growers in the Upper Midwest.
