G56 was the second high selling bull of the 2009 Hoover Angus Farm Production Sale to Hawleys Gen X Angus of Arcadia, NE. G56 comes from the same cow family as Hoover Dam.
BW 82 lbs., WW 818 lbs., WR 126, YW 1408 lbs., YR 117, IMF 4.69, ratio 110, Ribeye 14.9", ratio 110.
Undoubtedly one of the best calves of the crop. Not a big surprise though, out of a cow that does a superb job every year. G56 tied as the #3 heaviest weaning weight calf of the spring 2008 crop! This pushed his WW EPD above the top 1% of the breed!
Dam R155 still made the Pathfinder report at 13 years of age with a 363 day calving interval. R155 produced the top selling bred heifer in our 2008 auction to Dr. Nold of South Dakota. She was the 8th heaviest heifer calf of her crop. This heifer had a very even udder and raised a beautiful CC&7 heifer calf. R155’s other calf in our 2008 auction was a big, rugged 377 son that was purchased by repeat customer Randy Pendleton. Her 2003 calf was the 10th heaviest calf of his crop and was purchased by repeat customer Roger Vest. Two maternal sisters to R155 work in the herd with 7-108 WR and 7-103 WR.
Grandam V047 was the herd bull making kind. She produced H&K Neutron 377 Z7, the 2002 sale-topping bull at $11,000 to Wayne James. Wayne and wife Dixie sold two $9000 females—one sired by Z7 and one out of a Z7 dam. These two females alone more than paid the $11,000 purchase price of Z7! Another feature son of V047 was purchased for $4200 by Landmark Angus.
G56 has a gentle disposition like daddy CC&7. CC&7 is the #1 sire in the breed for Docility EPD!
