N29 originally sold through the 2015 Hoover sale for $23,000 to Steve Borns as the second top-selling bull.  In Steve’s dispersal sale in December, 2017, N29 was purchased by Select Sires for $39,000, with a competing stud as the contending bidder!

With 32 genomic progeny and 29 progeny through AHIR with an average 99 BWR and 103 WR, N29 has a great start on his proof!  N29 is a full brother to the Erica of Ellston L5 cow that now serves as a donor at Baldridge Bros.  L5 is the dam of Hoover Top Notch P409 (Select Sires), Hoover Cut Above (Select Sires), and Hoover Ambition (Alta Genetics).  Top Notch and Cut Above were part of the “Fab Five” flush in our 2017 auction – five L5 sons averaged $23,800!

G366 is regarded as the top cow in production at Hoover Angus, and likely the best cow that has ever been bred, born, and raised here in our 90 year history.  There are just no holes to poke in her! 

G366 maintains a perfect 365 day calving interval on her 8 natural progeny, which includes stealing flushes four different years!  G366 is now 10 years old, her udder and structure is still phenomenal.  She records 8-98 BWR, 8-107 WR, and 6-108 YR.

G366’s other progeny include the following.  A full brother to N29 sold to Peterson Grain & Cattle and Top Notch Angus in MT for $13,250.  A son that was the #1 adjusted weaning weight bull of his crop sold for $10,500 to Brian Erickson.  A sister to N29 selling the same year to these two bulls was the featured, top-selling open heifer at $12,000 to KDS Angus.  A featured daughter in our 2016 auction was the $10,000 co-top selling bred heifer to Charles Wimmer in IL.  Sons in our 2017 auction sold for $14,500 to Bruns Angus and $9500 to Wayne & Brian Reinhart.  We led-off our 2018 sale catalog with G366 sons & grandsons, with two featured sons and two featured grandsons.  These G366 sons and others work for Dan Olson, Richard & Jason Swaney, Don Hoffman, Jayme Sieren, and Jay Hefty.  G366 has brought a total of 10 featured progeny to auction, and her 13 progeny have grossed over $178,000 to average $13,712.

Quite possibly the best thing about G366 is the daughters she has produced.  Two of her daughters are the #1 and #2 indexing cows of the entire Hoover herd!  This is the only time in recent history I can remember that two sisters ranked #1 and #2!  Truly incredible!  G366’s five daughters in production in the Hoover herd have an average 109 WR on their progeny.  G366 not only has the most direct daughters working in the herd as any other cow today, but they are phenomenal producers.  G366 daughters produced the two lead-off bred heifers in our 2018 auction, selling for $48,000 and $22,000!

G366 has two daughters and one granddaughter that are the top 3 Hoover-owned females for $W, with indexes far above the top 1% of the breed!

G366 is an extremely gentle cow, and this shines through in her progeny.  Her Docility EPD stretches far above the top 1% of the breed.

G366 herself weaned at 716 lbs., WR 120 to be the 4th top weaning weight heifer of her crop and went on to post a 1020 pound yearling weight.  She scanned a 6.79 IMF, ratio 131 and an 11.5” ribeye, ratio 115.  As a yearling heifer, G366 was one of the top 10 WW EPD females in the breed!

G366’s great grandam V65 is the grandam of Hoover Dam.  This Erica cow family has put 7 bulls in 5 different AI studs.
