EPDs current as of spring 2014 NCE update

The bull that put Hoover Angus on the map, Hoover Dam has brought success to cattlemen across the country. Hoover Dam was the 5th top sire of the breed in 2013 for progeny registrations! After just two calf crops, Hoover Dam had achieved ABS' "Rock Solid .90 accuracy" designation – a rare feat for a young bull. He now has over 7300 progeny through AHIR in over 800 herds.

Hoover Dam has not only been successful for cattlemen that have used him in heifer AI projects, but his sons are easy to sell for registered breeders. Eight Hoover Dam sons now reside in America's bull studs.

There is no bull in the breed tested free of current genetic conditions that can match Hoover Dam's combined Marbling and Ribeye EPDs with his accuracy! Looking for a high accuracy bull to sire calving ease with muscle? Factoring in his high Docility, Hoover Dam is the only highly proven sire that can go from a +0 BW EPD or less to over a +1.00 Ribeye EPD!

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 3100 progeny 300+ herds have an average 105 IMF ratio and 101 RE ratio! As more kill data comes in, his carcass values keep rising, which in turn keeps driving his $B higher. 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 5-97 BWR, 5-113 WR, 5-108 YR, 11-103 IMF ratio, 11-103 Ribeye ratio, 11-99 rib fat ratio, and 11-94 rump fat ratio. C124's six sons to come to auction at Hoover Angus have averaged $16,050. One-half interest in C124 was purchased by Craigmore Farms, Ontario for $45,000 and she is now in the Craigmore and Hoover donor programs.

C124's 2009 heifer calf, Hoover Dame, was the top-selling female 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.

C124 has two maternal sisters: one with 8-103 WR and one with 5-102 WR. Pathfinder sister B235 is the #12 IMF ratio cow of the herd with 7-122 IMF ratio! Grandam V65 has been a low birth, high growth, good carcass cow. She has 7-98 BWR, 7-103 WR, 7-102 YR, 7-103 IMF ratio and 7-105 ribeye ratio with below herd average fat ratios. Her 347 day calving interval is one of the shortest in the herd. V65 weaned at 648 lbs., WR 103, YW 1062 lbs., YR 113, IMF 6.12, ratio 129, ribeye 11.4", ratio 105.

Great grandam V047 records 9-101 BWR, 9-112 WR, 9-111 YR, 3-121 IMF ratio, and 3-110 Ribeye ratio. She produced four sons averaging $5075.
