EPDs current as of 10/02/17

The bull that put Hoover Angus on the map!  Hoover Dam has made his mark on the nation’s cow herd not by touting a few extreme EPDs, but as being a balanced-trait bull with no caution flags.

Hoover Dam is the all-time semen sales bull ever at ORIgen, and approaching 10 years of age, is still one of the most popular and requested bulls to view at ORIgen.  He has sold over 175,000 units of semen and has grossed over $3 million.  Hoover Dam has truly established a brand name sire reputation for calving ease, muscle, docility, and maternal strength.

In years 2012-2015, Hoover Dam was among the top 10 bulls of the Angus breed for registrations.  He was only one of four bulls in the breed that was on the “Top 10” list each of those four years, and the ONLY bull of these four bred in a herd that registers less than 1000 head per year.  In 2015, Hoover Dam earned elite Pathfinder honors during his first year of eligibility.  He now has over 15,000 progeny through AHIR in over 1500 herds.
Hoover Dam is now a renowned sire for producing superior females. They are highly productive, functional, impeccable uddered females.  Many cattlemen view this as Hoover Dam’s greatest asset.  Hoover Dam daughters weaned the 2nd and 4th top weaning weight bull calves of the spring 2017 Hoover crop among 160 contemporaries!

The Hoover Dam calves have exceptional thickness, especially for a bull with such a proven low birth weight. They have eye appeal, power and mass in a moderate framed package. Even more exciting is Hoover Dam's successes in carcass and feed efficiency traits. His carcass EPDs have risen significantly after calves have been ultrasounded in herds across the country. Over 6800 progeny in over 700 herds have an average 105 IMF ratio and 101 ribeye ratio. Over 100 carcass progeny have also been reported. In the 2011 Midland Bull Test, progeny from multiple herds also topped the test for RFI score, with the average RFI -2.79!

Pathfinder dam C124 has an impeccable record of 6-96 BWR, 6-114 WR, 6-106 YR, 40-101 IMF ratio and 40-102 Ribeye ratio. C124's nine sons to come to auction at Hoover Angus have averaged $13,050 and her eight daughters have averaged $13,475. One-half interest in C124 was purchased by Craigmore Farms, Ontario for $45,000 as a 6-year-old, then Craigmore purchased the remaining ½ interest as a 13 year-old cow.

C124's 2009 heifer calf, Hoover Dame, was the top-selling heifer calf in the history of the farm at $50,000 to the Hoover Dame Syndicate, a group of progressive Angus breeders from several states. She had exceptional performance: BW 69 lbs., WW 703 lbs., WR 115, YW 1105 lbs., YR 112, IMF 5.18, ratio 103, RE 14.6", ratio 121.

A full sister to Hoover Dam working in the Hoover herd raised the 12th top adjusted weaning weight heifer calf of our spring 2015 crop and the 11th top weaning weight heifer calf in our spring 2016 crop!

Semen $26/unit, $40/Certificate.  Semen is available through ABS, the ORIgen networks, and Hoover Angus.
