2000 Estimated Wealth: $160 million

Owns North Little Rock-based Mountaire Corp., which produces animal feed in Arkansas and North Carolina. The company had $320 million in revenue last year.

Founded in 1914 by Guy Cameron, the business was known as Cameron Feed Mills by 1931. In 1959, the company and six other businesses formed a joint venture for an integrated poultry operation that became Mountaire Poultry Co. The name changed to Mountaire Corp. in 1971.

Ted Cameron, Guy's son, was chairman, and Ronnie, Ted's son, became CEO in 1975. The corporation now includes three companies: Mountaire Feeds Inc., a North Little Rock commercial feed mill that sells products under the brand name Prime Quality Feeds; and Mountaire Farms of Delmarva Inc. and Mountaire Farms of North Carolina Inc., both integrated poultry processing companies.
