Semen now available for $25/unit on this impressive young sire!

S4 was the $39,000 top-selling bull of our 2018 auction to Eagle Hill Farms in Lucas, Iowa. This short gestation calf offers a great birth to weaning and yearling spread with an actual birth weight of only 72 pounds out of a mature cow.

S4 was the 2nd top adjusted weaning weight bull of his crop at 905 pounds, WR 116! He posted a 1427 pound yearling weight, YR 110, and an adjusted 41.55 cm scrotal. His ultrasound data was equally impressive with a 4.18 IMF, ratio 118, and a 17.2” ribeye, ratio 114.

S4 is a soft-made, easy fleshing, thick, deep sided bull that we predict to make superior females. He is a little more moderate in his frame than most 38 Special progeny. S4 was the favorite of the crop by many visitors to the farm prior to our sale.

Few bulls in the breed have the “spread” that S4 does. Among genomically tested non-parent bulls, only 45 bulls in the breed (among over 155,000) can meet or exceed S4’s superior low birth weight to high WW and YW EPD spread!

S4’s WW EPD, YW EPD, Docility EPD, and $Weaned Calf Value are all above the top 1% of the breed!

When you think of an Angus momma cow, and what she should do, that is exactly what dam M3 does. She is a superior uddered, good disposition, solid phenotype cow that raises a whale of a calf every year, starting with a moderate birth weight. She records 3-99 BWR, 3-109 WR, and 3-107 YR. She is a highly fertile cow, and the first cow to calve in our spring 2018 calving season. She became a donor in the spring of 2018 due to her superior production, fertility, feet, and udder.

I’m proud to say M3 is a 17th generation bred, born, and raised Hoover cow! I would venture to say there are very few herds in the nation where you can find this many consecutive generations of females bred by the same family on the same farm.

Trace down the dam’s line on M3’s pedigree, and five of the past six generations of dams have earned Pathfinder honors! A testament to their true superiority!

M3’s first calf weaned at 747 pounds to tie as the third top weaning weight heifer of her crop. This cow now works in the herd and raised an excellent Elation son in our 2018 sale. M3’s next calf was an excellent Top Cut son selling to Clay Howerton. Her third calf is S4.

M3 maintains a superb 334 day calving interval – she has moved up a month or better with each consecutive calving. As a young cow, that is hard to do, but speaks to the fertility passed down from her cow family.

Pathfinder grandam H118 has also done a phenomenal job, recording 7-98 BWR, 7-104 WR, and 7-102 YR. Three of her sons have topped the $10,000 mark, and two of her sons have been among the top 10 adjusted weaning weight bull calves of their crop. She serves as the herd’s 15th top IMF ratio cow with 6-117 IMF ratio. H118 records a 361 day calving interval on her 7 progeny.

Pathfinder great grandam B305 has been one of my favorites – she is a slow, easy-going cow that produced until 14 years of age. She maintained a 363 day calving interval on 13 progeny, and 13-106 WR! She is one of the few cows in the breed to have produced three Pathfinder daughters! At 14 years of age, B305’s udder was superb.

With the history of fertility, longevity, superior udders, and good disposition found in this pedigree, I highly recommend saving as many daughters from S4 as possible – I would put them up against the daughters of any high-dollar bull that sells anywhere in the country this spring! Few high dollar bulls will be backed by the heritage and records possessed by this cow family.

S4 is seeing AI use at Hoover Angus in 2018, and semen is available through the owners Semen $25.
