2020 Seedstock 100

SeedStock_logo_blue copyPROMO.png
One hundred seedstock suppliers and more than 56,000 bulls make the BEEF Seedstock 100 list.

Every year, we assemble the annual Seedstock 100 list for several reasons, which include monitoring the level of seedstock concentration and the relative market engagement of seedstock suppliers. It’s also meant to recognize the contribution of seedstock producers who make all or a substantial portion of their cattle income from the seedstock business.

As such, the BEEF Seedstock 100 list makes no claim to be representative of the seedstock industry as a whole. Neither is it intended to be a proxy of quality and ability.

Inclusion on the S100 list speaks to a host of supplier attributes associated with the commitment and ability to market so many bulls year after year, such as customer trust and satisfaction, industry knowledge and adaptability.

With that said, our SS100 list represents a small percentage of the overall number of beef cattle seedstock suppliers in the United States. Obviously, you can find seedstock providers offering far fewer than 230 bulls each year who market top-end quality backed by top-drawer service. Those providers can be found in our Seedstock Directory list.
