“Marketing heifers through Seedstock Plus really helped my bottom line,” says Tim Evert of Warrensburg, MO. “It has increased the value of our heifers by $300-$400 per head, maybe more in some cases. I’ve seen extra profit by marketing heifers through Seedstock Plus.” Evert is a longtime Seedstock Plus customer who first used Seedstock Plus bulls on heifers. “Those bulls worked really well, and I decided we should use them on our cows, too,” Evert explains. “It has made a big difference in our weaning weights.” At the time, he had Charolais crossbred and other mixed breed cows. He used mostly Balancer bulls at first but evolved to using Gelbvieh bulls on predominately Angus females and then Balancers on those calves. “One of the biggest influences Seedstock Plus genetics has made on our herd is calving ease,” Evert says. “We run enough cows that there’s lots of opportunity to get into a jam. We don’t hardly ever have to pull a calf from our heifers or our cows.” “John talked to me several times and said to let him know when I had heifers to sell,” Evert explains. “The first year we sold heifers through Seedstock Plus, John helped us sell them private treaty. He was involved in every bit of that. I’m not sure that’s something you’d find other seedstock providers doing, working so hard to help you market cattle sired by their genetics.” “John and Seedstock Plus work hard to satisfy you. John doesn’t just sell you a bull, he tries to match the bull to your needs. They have a fantastic warranty program, but the quality of the bulls is such that you don’t often need it.” If a problem does occur, Evert appreciates how willing Seedstock Plus is to work with customers to make it right and not leave them hanging. “John will work with you, and he won’t leave you in a jam if you’re needing to replace a bull in a hurry,” Evert says.
