<PAGE>   20
                  7.2.3 for a period of five (5) years from and after the
Closing Date, in any manner, either directly or indirectly, solicit any employee
of Buyer (or the Business) to work for any Person other than Buyer, or engage in
any activity that would cause any employee to violate any agreement with Buyer,
or dissuade, or attempt to dissuade, any such employee from faithfully
discharging such employee's contractual and fiduciary obligations to serve
Buyer's interests with undivided loyalty; and

                  7.2.4 induce or persuade any customer or supplier of Buyer (or
the Business) to terminate its relationship with Buyer (or the Business) or to
enter into any relationship with any other Person engaged in the business of
developing, marketing, distributing, or selling services or software designed to

the sale, prescription, or distribution of annual supplements in the ordinary
course of a bovine and equine veterinary practice) in the markets of veterinary

For purposes of this Section 7.2, "Confidential Information" means any
information not in the public domain concerning any matters affecting or
relating to the Business, including, but not limited to, inventions, trade
secrets, confidential knowledge, data, or other proprietary information relating
to products, processes, know-how, designs, formulas, developmental or
experimental work, computer programs, source code, databases, other original
works of authorship, records, ideas and research relating to design, coding,
operation, use, installation, or maintenance of computer software or proposed
computer software products of the Business, any portion of any reports, analyses
or other materials generated or used in connection with the Business, the prices
Seller obtains or has obtained from the sale of, or at which it sells or has
sold, its products and services, and listings of any or all of the foregoing, in
whatever form, or any other information concerning the Business without regard
to whether all or any part of the foregoing matter would otherwise be deemed
"confidential" or "material," the parties hereto stipulating that, as between
them, the same are confidential and material and significantly affect the
effective and successful conduct of the Business. If any clause or provision of
this Section 7.2 be found unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction,
then such clause or provision shall be deemed to be enforceable to the extent
permitted by law and every other clause and provision shall continue in full
force and effect. Seller acknowledges that the restraints imposed upon it
pursuant to this Section 7.2 are no greater than is reasonably necessary to
preserve and protect the assets and legitimate business interests of Buyer and
that such restraints will not impose undue hardship on Seller, and that a
violation of this Section by Seller would irreparably injure Buyer. Accordingly,
Buyer may, in addition to pursuing its other remedies, obtain an injunction from
any court having jurisdiction of the matter against Seller, as applicable, for
any such violation without having to prove the inadequacies of monetary relief
and no bond or other security shall be required in connection with such
injunction. The agreements contained in this Section 7.2 shall be construed and
enforced independently of any other provision of this Agreement or any other
understanding or agreement between the parties, and the existence of any claim
or cause of action of Seller against Buyer, of whatever nature, shall not
constitute a defense to the enforcement of the agreements contained in this
Section 7.2 against Seller.

         7.3 Satisfaction of Excluded Liabilities. From and after the Closing
Date, Seller shall pay, perform, and otherwise satisfy in full when due, all
liabilities and obligations that relate to or may affect the Business or the
Purchased Assets, including, but not limited to, the Excluded Liabilities,
excepting only the Assumed Liabilities.

         7.4 Further Assurances. From time to time after the Closing Date,
without additional consideration, Seller shall execute and deliver all such
other reasonable instruments of sale, assignment, conveyance, and transfer and
shall take all such other reasonable action, as Buyer may reasonably request to
more effectively transfer and vest in Buyer, and to put Buyer in possession of,
any of the Purchased Assets including, but not limited to, the data which Seller
processes.

         7.5 Name Change. Seller shall take all necessary corporate action to
approve the withdrawal or cancellation of every registration or a corporate or
assumed name incorporating the names "PCC," or "Professional Cattle Consultants,
L.L.C." in each state where Seller has registered a corporate or assumed name
incorporating such names. Seller shall prepare and deliver to Buyer at Closing,
all documentation and filings necessary to effect such actions, in forms
appropriate for filing by Buyer. After the Closing Date, Seller shall refrain
from using the names "PCC" or Professional Cattle Consultants, L.L.C. or any
derivation thereof, except in an historical manner.

         7.6 Collection of Accounts Receivable. For a period of ninety (90) days
from the Closing Date, Seller shall reasonably assist Buyer in the collection of
the Accounts Receivable.

         7.7 Best Efforts. For a period of ninety (90) days from the Closing
Date, each of Seller and Roberta Tippins shall use its/her best efforts to
maintain the oral and written Purchased Contracts and to undertake all actions
necessary to effect the transition of such agreements/relationships to Buyer and
to secure additional customers.

promptly do all such acts and take all such measures as may be appropriate to
enable it to perform the obligations herein provided to be performed by it.

         8.4 Disclosure of Data. Buyer agrees that for so long as it provides
its customers with what is currently referred to as the "PCC Monthly Cattle

so long as each of Mr. Tippens and Lextron are current with their respective
subscription and or others fees owed to Buyer, as in effect from time to time,
and further provided that Mr. Tippen and Lextron agree that each shall not use
such information to compete with Buyer in any way.

                           WARRANTIES; INDEMNIFICATION

         9.1 Survival of Representations and Warranties. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this Agreement, each and every representation and warranty of
Seller set forth in this Agreement or any other agreement or document executed
or delivered in connection herewith, shall survive the Closing for a period of
two (2) years from the Closing Date, despite any investigations made by or on
behalf of any party hereto, excepting only that the representations and
warranties of Seller set forth in Sections 5.1 and 5.14, shall survive the
Closing without limitation, and the representations and warranties with respect
to taxes set forth in Section 5.9, shall survive until the expiration of any
statutes of limitation applicable with respect to such taxes, including any
extensions with respect to such statutes granted by or on behalf of Seller. All
of the covenants and other agreements of the parties hereto shall survive the
Closing until the expiration of any statutes of limitation applicable thereto.

         9.2 Indemnification. Seller hereby indemnifies and agree to defend and
hold Buyer and its officers, directors, shareholders, affiliates, employees,
successors, and assigns (collectively, the "Buyer Indemnitees") harmless from
and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, costs, and expenses
(including, without limitation, court costs, costs of investigation, and
reasonable attorneys' fees), incurred or sustained by any of the Buyer
Indemnitees because of any inaccuracy in, or breach or violation of, any of the
representations, warranties, covenants, or agreements made by Seller pursuant to
this Agreement or any other agreement or document executed or delivered in
connection herewith, whether or not such inaccuracy, breach, or violation was
known or should have been known, by Buyer, Seller, on the date of this Agreement
or on the Closing Date, it being the acknowledged intention of the parties that
Seller shall be completely responsible for, and Buyer shall be conclusively
deemed to have relied upon, such representations, warranties, and covenants in
the consummation of the purchase and sale transactions contemplated herein. In
addition, Seller hereby indemnifies and agrees to defend and hold the Buyer
Indemnitees harmless from and against any and all liabilities, lawsuits,

of the Buyer Indemnitees as a result of: (i) any and all debts, liabilities
(including, but not limited to, the Excluded Liabilities set forth in Section

approved, liquidated, unliquidated, ordinary, extraordinary, absolute,
contingent, unknown,


                                       22
<PAGE>   23
known, or otherwise, except the Assumed Liabilities, which Buyer expressly
agrees to assume pursuant to Section 0; and (ii) any and all suits, actions, or
claims (including, but not limited to, product liability, patent infringement,
and unfair trade practice claims) relating to the sale or any other form of
transaction, or any action or inaction on the part of Seller at any time on or
prior to the Closing Date, whether or not pending as of the Closing Date.

                                    ARTICLE X

                                AMENDMENT; WAIVER

         10.1 Amendment. This Agreement may only be amended in a writing that
refers to this Agreement and is executed by the parties hereto.

         10.2 Integration. This Agreement (including the Exhibits and Schedules
hereto), and each agreement or document executed or delivered in connection
herewith, embodies the entire agreement of the parties hereto in relation to the
purchase and sale of the Purchased Assets and the other transactions
contemplated herein, and supersedes all prior understandings and agreements of
the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof.

         10.3 Waiver; Remedies. No delay on the part of any party in exercising
any right, power, or privilege shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any
waiver of any right, power, or privilege operate as a waiver of any other right,
power, or privilege, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right,
power, or privilege preclude any other or further exercise thereof or of any
other right, power, or privilege. The rights and remedies herein provided are
cumulative and are not exclusive of any rights or remedies that the parties
otherwise may have at law or in equity, by statute or otherwise.

                                   ARTICLE XI

                                  MISCELLANEOUS

         11.1 Successors, Assigns, and Third Parties. This Agreement shall inure
to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective
successor and assigns; provided, however, that Seller may not make any
assignment of this Agreement or any interest herein or obligation hereunder,
without the prior written consent of Buyer. Nothing herein expressed or implied
is intended or shall be construed to confer upon or give to any Person, other
than the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns, any rights
or remedies under or by reason of this Agreement.

         11.2 Governing Law. This Agreement shall in all respects be
interpreted, construed, and governed by and in accordance with the laws of the

         11.3 Specific Performance. The purpose of Buyer in entering this
Agreement is to gain control of the Purchased Assets of the Business. Such
Business and the Purchased Assets are unique and cannot be readily obtained on
the open market. If Seller refuses to perform its obligations under this
Agreement, Buyer shall be entitled to specific performance. In any action to
enforce the provisions of this Agreement, Seller shall waive the defense that
there is an adequate remedy at law.

         11.4 Certain Words. Words such as "herein," "hereof," "hereby,"
"hereunder" and words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole and
