BEEF Magazine produces listing of America's top bull sellers.

The 2016 BEEF Seedstock 100, the United States beef industry’s premier listing of the top 100 bull sellers in the U.S., has been published in the January issue of BEEF magazine. The operations were ranked by the total number of bulls each operation sells annually. Once again, Boehringer Ingelheim supported this project.

BEEF Magazine listing of top 100 seedstock producers is a valuable resource producers.

“Last year, the response to our Seedstock 100 list was tremendous. We heard from cattle producers throughout the country about how valuable the list was to them. Cow-calf producers are spending more money on genetics to increase the value of the calves and we want to provide more information as they make cutting edge decisions,” says Burt Rutherford, senior editor of BEEF magazine. The BEEF Seedstock 100 provides a ranking of America’s top bull sellers, all of whom market more than 200 bulls annually, and provides location, contact and breed information, as well as marketing method and sale dates.

A total of 20 beef cattle breeds are represented in the 2016 BEEF Seedstock 100, with Angus being most prevalent. South Dakota, Nebraska and Montana have the most operations in the top 100, followed by Kansas and Colorado, then Texas, Idaho and Wyoming.
