The new Marbling King at Hoover Angus with frame, performance, and eye appeal!  Ultrasound data from the spring 2018 Hoover Angus heifer crop showed that the top FOUR marbling heifers among 100+ heifers were all sired by Baldridge 38 Special!  This young sire now has 65 progeny with a whopping 115 IMF ratio and 100 ribeye ratio (in a herd known for big ribeyes)!  

38 Special sons were crowd favorites in our February 2018 auction, where 18 yearling sons averaged $9806, over $3300 above the yearling bull sale average!  

38 Special was our pick of the bulls in the record 2016 Baldridge Bros. Sale, where 38 Special and his 6 flush brothers averaged $58,928. 38 Special was the 3rd top-selling bull of the event at $100,000, and is co-owned with Alta Genetics. Sire Commando produced 20 sons in the 2016 Baldridge sale that averaged $35,275. 38 Special's dam has produced a total of 43 sons selling in the last three Baldridge sales to average $38,285! There is power in the blood!

38 Special was definitely the power, high performance bull of his flush and a standout with added frame in the Baldridge offering. He is a unique blend of his sire's calving ease and his dam's big frame and power. Viewing the Y69 donor cow prior to purchasing 38 Special, we found her to be everything Jud promised.  She is likely the most influential cow in Baldridge Bros. history, and is having an impact on the nation’s cow herd.  As her sons are being used heavily now across the breed, Y69 will be remembered as one of the breed’s great ones!  

38 Special’s second calf crop was recently weaned at Hoover Angus, and now there are over 200 AHIR records on progeny with an average 98 birth weight ratio and 103 weaning ratio.  53 progeny have an average 103 yearling ratio.  In the spring 2018 Hoover crop, both the #1 adjusted weaning weight bull and #1 adjusted weaning weight heifer (non-ET) were sired by 38 Special.  There were a total of 6 of the top 10 adjusted weaning weight bulls that were sired by 38 Special, and the exact same was true for top weaning weight heifers – 6 of the top 10!

In 38 Special’s first calf crop in 2017, a heifer calf was the #1 adjusted weaning weight heifer of the crop at 872 pounds, which is the heaviest adjusted weaning weight of any female in Hoover history!  Another heifer was the 4th top weaning weight heifer.  38 Special sons were the 2nd and 4th top weaning weight bull calves.  38 Special calves have added frame and muscle. 

Heifers were calved successfully to 38 Special, and therefore we used him much heavier on heifers during the spring and fall 2017 breeding seasons.  38 Special has seen much higher usage during the spring 2017 and 2018 breeding seasons across the country, and those who used him last spring have called with exciting reports.  38 Special truly looks to be one of the most exciting young herd sires in recent Hoover Angus history!

There will be a large number of 38 Special bulls in our February 5, 2019 production sale, as well as select 38 Special bred heifers and many heifers bred to him.

38 Special has one of the best 50K profiles we have seen, highlights include:
