                         PROXY STATEMENT

     This Proxy Statement and the enclosed form of Proxy are
being furnished in connection with the solicitation of proxies 
for use at the Annual Meeting  of Stockholders  of Midwest Grain
Products, Inc. (the "Company") to  be held on October 6, 1994, as
set forth in the preceding Notice.  It is expected that this
Proxy Statement and the enclosed form of Proxy will be mailed to
Stockholders commencing September 12, 1994.

                       GENERAL INFORMATION

     The holders of outstanding shares of Common Stock and
Preferred Stock of the Company at the close of business on August
24, 1994, are entitled to notice of and to vote at the Annual
Meeting.  The presence in person or by proxy of persons entitled
to vote a majority of the issued and outstanding stock of each
class of stock entitled to vote will constitute a quorum for the
transaction of business at the meeting.  As of August 24, 1994,
there were 9,765,172 shares of Common Stock outstanding and 437
shares of Preferred Stock outstanding.

     Generally, holders of Common and Preferred Stock each vote
separately as a class with respect to each matter that the class
is authorized to vote on with each share of stock in each class
being entitled to one vote.  In connection with the election of
directors the holders of Common Stock are entitled to vote on the
election of Group A directors and the holders of Preferred Stock
are entitled to vote on the election of Group B directors.  The
candidates for office which receive the highest number of votes
will be elected.  Although no other proposals are scheduled to
come before the meeting other than the election of directors, the
affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power
represented at the meeting (or such higher voting requirement as
may be specified by law or the Company's Articles of
Incorporation) is required for approval of other proposals.  With
respect to abstentions from voting on a proposal or the
withholding of votes  in the election of directors, the shares
are considered present at the meeting for the proposal, but since
they are not affirmative votes for the proposal, they will have
the same effect as votes against the proposal.  With respect to
broker non-votes, the shares are not considered present at the
meeting for the particular proposal for which the broker did not
vote.

     Any Stockholder giving a Proxy may revoke it at any time
prior to its use by executing a later dated Proxy or by filing a
written revocation with the Secretary of the Company.  A Proxy
may also be revoked by appearing at the meeting and voting by
written ballot.  All shares represented by a Proxy in the
enclosed form that is properly executed and received in time for
the meeting and not revoked will be voted.  If a choice is 

 4
specified with respect to any matter to be acted upon, the shares
will be voted in accordance with the specification so made.  If
no choice is specified, the Proxy will be voted FOR each of the
nominees named on the Proxy with respect to the election of
directors.  

     The principal executive offices of the Company are located
at 1300 Main Street, Atchison, Kansas 66002 and the Company's
telephone number at that address is (913) 367-1480.

                       ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
Nominees

     Two Group A Directors and one Group B Director are required
to be elected at the Annual Meeting.  The holders of the Common
Stock are entitled to vote for the persons nominated for the
Group A position.  The holders of Preferred Stock are entitled to
vote for persons nominated for the Group B position.  Richard J.
Bruggen and Michael Braude have been nominated by the Board of
Directors for election to the two Group A positions for terms
expiring at the Annual Meeting in 1997.  The Board had nominated
John K. Pfahl for the Group B position.  Dr. Pfahl, a former
director, passed away on August 8, 1994.  Since then the
Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors has been searching
for candidates for that office, but has not completed its work.
It is expected that the Board and the Committee will have a
nomination to make at the Annual Meeting.  Messrs. Bruggen and
Braude are now and have been directors of the Company for more
than the past three years.  Each of the nominees have consented
to serve if elected.  If for any reason any of the nominees
should not be available or able to serve, the Proxies will
exercise discretionary authority to vote for substitutes deemed
by them to be in the best interests of the Company.

Certain information concerning the Board and its Committees

     The Board has three standing committees:  Audit, Nominating
and Human Resources.  Non-employee directors are paid $2,500
quarterly, $625 for attendance at each meeting of the Board, and
$312.50 for attendance at each meeting of a committee of the
Board.  Employee directors receive a fee of $437.50 for
attendance at each meeting of the Board of Directors.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 1994, the Board met 4 times
and the various Committees met as follows:  Nominating once, 
Audit three times, and Human Resources four times.  The
attendance at Committee and Board meetings was 98.6%. 

     The Audit Committee recommends to the Board of Directors an
independent accountant to audit the books and records of the
Company and its subsidiaries for the year.  It also reviews, to
the extent it deems appropriate, the Company's Employee Conduct
Policy, litigation and pending claims, the scope, plan and
findings of the independent accountants' annual audit and
internal audits, recommendations of the auditor, the adequacy of
internal accounting controls and audit procedures, the Company's
audited financial statements, non-audit services performed by the
independent auditor, and fees paid to the independent auditor for
audit and non-audit services.

     The Human Resources Committee recommends to the Board of

     The Nominating Committee recommends to the Board of
Directors the qualifications for new Director nominees,
candidates for nomination, the structure of Board committees,
procedures for the review of director performance, and policies
concerning compensation and length of service.  The Committee
considers written recommendations from stockholders concerning
these subjects and suggests that they may be addressed to the
Secretary of the Company.  Recommendations for director nominees
should provide pertinent information concerning the candidates'
background and experience.

                           OTHER MATTERS

     At this time the Company has no knowledge of any matters to

Report of the Human Resources Committee

     Human Resources Committee Interlocks and Insider             
     Participation.  

     Executive compensation is based primarily upon
recommendations made to the Board of Directors by the Company's
Human Resources Committee (the "Committee").  The Committee
consisted of Robert J. Reintjes (Chairman), Tom MacLeod, John K.
Pfahl (deceased) and Eleanor B. Schwartz during the year ended
June 30, 1994, and of Messrs. Reintjes, MacLeod, and Pfahl during
the year ended June 30, 1993.  The present Committee consists of
Michael Braude (Chairman), Mr. MacLeod and Ms. Schwartz.  All of
the members of the Committee are non-employee directors of the
Company. The Committee recommends to the Board of Directors
compensation and compensation plans for officers who are paid in
excess of $60,000 per annum. The recommendations are acted upon
by the full board which includes Messrs. Cray, Jr., Seaberg and
Schrick, who are three of the five highest paid officers of the
Company.

     This report is provided by the Committee to assist
stockholders in understanding the Committee's philosophy in
establishing the compensation of the Chief Executive Officer and
all other Executive Officers of the Company for the year ended
June 30, 1994 ("the Year"). 

     Compensation Philosophy.

     Historically, executive compensation has been designed to
link rewards with business results and stockholder returns
consistent with (a) the executive's level of responsibility, (b)
compensation paid to the executive in the prior year, (c) the
Company's performance for the Year and the prior year, (d) the
executive's individual performance for the Year and the prior
year, (e) salary levels for executives in comparable positions in
comparable enterprises, (f) inflation and (g) a variety of other
factors.  The components of Executive Compensation which reflect
this philosophy consist of (a) annual base salary, (b) annual
cash bonuses, (c) annual stock bonuses and (d) equity based
retirement compensation which is reflected in the Company's
Employee Stock Ownership Plan.  In formulating its compensation
recommendations the Committee considers information and
recommendations provided by management and by Hay Management
Consultants, a nationally known and recognized firm of management
consultants.

     Base Salary.

     Consistent with past practice, base salaries of all
executives were established prior to the beginning of the Year
based on the various factors described in the preceding 

 10 
paragraph.  In addition, the Committee considered competitive pay
and performance information provided by an outside consultant in
arriving at base salaries as well as total compensation as a
whole.  Base salaries of all executive officers have generally
been increased over the past three years to bring those more in
line with base compensation paid by comparable organizations for
comparable positions.

     Annual Cash Bonuses.

     Annual cash bonuses are paid primarily pursuant to a Cash
Bonus Plan that has been utilized for the past several years. 
Under the plan each executive, along with all other nonunion
personnel, become entitled to cash bonuses, payable semiannually,
up to an amount equal to a percentage of each employee's base
salary.  During 1994, the amount of the percentage for all
employees and executives was based upon the Company's realization
of certain objective corporate, marketing and operating
performance goals determined at the beginning of the Year.  The
Committee revised these targets during the year due to last
summer's midwestern floods which had a significant unexpected
adverse effect on first and second quarter results.  Although the
targets were lowered, the performance for the year exceeded the
goals initially set before the adjustments.  As a consequence,
all of the five highest paid Executive Officers received the
maximum bonuses payable under the plan. This form of bonus
primarily rewards team rather than individual performance. 

     The Committee has also authorized a $50,000 bonus pool that
may be paid at the discretion of the Chief Executive Officer to
reward superior performance during the Year by any employee of
the Company other than the CEO.

     Executive Stock Bonus Plan.

     Historically, the Company has made shares of the Company's
Common Stock available to key executive and managerial employees
on favorable terms in order to encourage stock ownership at those
management levels.  The Company's Executive Stock Bonus Plan has
been the vehicle designed to achieve this objective since 1989. 
Under the plan key executives and managerial employees are
selected at the end of the year by the Committee to receive stock
bonuses based primarily upon recommendations received by the
Committee from Company management after an assessment of each
participant's individual performance for the Year and based upon
the amount of stock previously acquired by the participant from
the Company under such plans in prior years. In addition, the
Chief Executive Officer and certain senior executives are
selected at the beginning of the Year to participate in a
"Senior" level of 



 11
the stock bonus plan.  The aggregate cash amounts contributed for
stock purchases under the Senior Executive Stock Bonus Plan for
the Year was 6% of the Company's pretax profits in excess of a
specified target.  Under the Plan, the aggregate amount
contributed by the Company for all purchase of stock bonuses
under both the "Executive" and "Senior" levels of the Plan may
not exceed 5% of the Company's consolidated pretax income for the
year.  For 1994 the Company contributed an aggregate of $499,477
for stock bonuses provided to 72 key employees under the Plan.

     Employee Stock Ownership Plan.

     The final component of executive compensation consists of
participation in the Company's employee stock ownership plans,
which are available to all union and nonunion employees.  Amounts
contributed by the Company are invested in shares of the
Company's Common Stock.  Shares purchased are allocated to
participant accounts in proportion to the participant's eligible
compensation (as defined).  Generally, accounts are distributed
to participants who have completed at least ten years of service
upon death, permanent disability or retirement.  The amount of
the Company's contribution to the nonunion ESOP's is determined
by the Board each year based upon the recommendation of the

Company performance for the Year.

     Compensation of the Chief Executive Officer for 1994.

     All of the components of the 1994 compensation of the Chief
Executive Officer were determined in accordance with the criteria
described above.  Mr. Seaberg's base compensation has been
increased at the beginning of each of the last three fiscal years
by approximately 10% per annum due to outstanding performance and
to bring the base salary more in line with base compensation paid
to chief executive officers of comparable organizations. 

     This report is being made over the names of Robert J.
Reintjes, Tom MacLeod and Eleanor B. Schwartz, who were the
members of the Committee which passed on Executive Compensation
for the Year.

    Preferred Stock

     I am enclosing a proxy card, proxy statement and the
Company's Annual Report for 1994.  As indicated in the Proxy

for the meeting on October 6, 1994.  Accordingly, you may wish to
attend the meeting.
