Management Focuses on the Future and the People
Successful ventures may be born of dreams but it is
only hard work and persistence that make them viable in the long run.
Seedstock Plus was born not only of dreams but of careful research and
a focused vision from experienced people working hard and smart.
John Burbank serves as the President and CEO of
Seedstock Plus LLC. As he and other successful breeders shared ideas
on the future, they all readily acknowledged it was going to take more
than hard work for breeders like them to remain competitive and thrive
in the next century. Technology was moving extremely fast and to use
the old trial drive adage, they weren't planning to eat dust, they
were going to make dust.
In the ensuing incubation period, John proved to be
the catalyst and a number of other breeders who shared the same vision
joined him to "seize the day". Structurally, there is a Board of
Directors who provide a huge pool of experience and talent and a
group of Regional Coordinators to help with the day to day management
across the country. What is remarkable though, is the level of
commitment and focus that all the members of Seedstock Plus bring to
the table. This is a group of breeders who are not afraid of the
future but relish its opportunities.
It is no big secret in the industry that the tools
which Seedstock Plus are providing will likely be the primary method
of management in the future. These are the programs that will allow
many producers to get on the cutting edge and remain there. With the
never ending flow of technology, new market targets and consumer
awareness, it is beyond the capability of most outfits to compete in
the top tier without the support of a Seedstock Plus.

progressive producers that are totally committed to industry leading

All Seedstock Plus bulls sell with a breeder's
guarantee that covers fertility, structure and disposition for
the first breeding season (six months). If any bull we sell
fails during the first season due to fertility, structure or

problem bull minus any salvage value.
In addition to the breeder's guarantee, Seedstock
Plus offers a six month warranty for injury or death. The
warranty is optional but highly recommended because it covers
any and all injuries or death on the purchased bull for six
months. The cost of the additional warranty is 4% of the
purchase price and must be purchased at settlement time.
