The 4th annual edition of BEEF magazine's Seedstock 100 is now available.
It is a listing of the biggest seedstock producers in the beef industry, including bull sales volume and contact information.
BEEF’s Seedstock 100 list is based on the number of bulls marketed in 2017, not the number of cattle registered annually or the number of cows listed in inventories with a breed association or other genetic organizations.
Seedstock 100 operations marketed 32 different breeds and composites, but the majority offerings were these breeds and composites:
Red Angus (19.8%)
Charolais and Sim-Angus (11.9% each)
Further, to see or take part in BEEF's larger list of seedstock operations, go to the page listed as the Seedstock Directory on the BEEF website. These include operations which sold fewer than 215 bulls last year (the cutoff for inclusion this year).
