Our History



Robert J. Matthews & Kathryn M. Matthews started the company in 1941 with lots of love and faith.


Love for one another, love for horses and all animals large, medium and small, and faith in one quality all-natural product, Rex Wheat Germ Oil.


The leading brand for over 70 years


1941 – Robert J. Matthews discovers Rex Wheat Germ Oil in the Breeders Gazette. He believes the product has great potential for livestock horse & pet owners, and contacts the Viobin Corporation to become a distributor.


Rex Wheat Germ Oil is nationally advertised with the following features and benefits:

  • Helps females settle
  • Helps improve activity in males
  • Contains a vigor factor


Rex Wheat Germ Oil is 100% pure, unrefined wheat germ oil extracted through a unique process that preserves more of the essential vitamins and nutrients of the wheat germ as they are found in nature. It is an all-natural, nutritional supplement that contains Natural Vitamin E, Octacosanol, as well as Omega-3 and -6 Essential Fatty Acids.


Today – Rex Wheat Germ Oil is still popular with horse, livestock & pet owners nationwide for the same reasons advertised back in 1941. Growing interest and popularity in natural products, Vitamin E and the benefits of using a proven product help keep Rex Wheat Germ Oil sales strong in the animal health industry.

Robert J. & Kathryn M. Matthews started the company back in 1941.

Bob wrote and taped this note to his dashboard after he had a flat tire in the throes of a driving snow- storm, and had to unload all the Wheat Germ Oil out of his car to lighten the load, jack up the car and change the tire.

Bob said,
"No flat tire was going to discourage me; I loved what I was doing and was determined to be successful."


For 100,000 miles, this little black car was the sales office, warehouse and delivery system!

Bob said,
"Kathryn never used an eraser and insisted on perfection. Her letters made us look like we were a bigger company than we really were."


Kathryn lovingly said,
"Bob loves horses more than anything, including me!"


The Repository/Copyrighted/Used With Permission

Bob & Kathryn celebrated 70 years of marriage November 21, 2010 and were always firm believers in the benefits of Wheat Germ Oil. They took a teaspoon a day, every day, for over 70 years!
