Hoover Angus was pleased to partner with Tim Hackett Farms, LLC to own this intriguing young sire from Sydenstricker Genetics! Viewing the bull and his dam prior to the SydGen sale, we were most impressed with his dam’s confirmation, udder structure, and nice disposition. This model Angus cow and working donor is a maternal sister to SydGen Express 3487B. SydGen Express just sired the $94,000 top-selling female in the November 2018 SydGen Sale! The 4387 cow now has two progeny that have topped the $10,000 mark. She was the Lot 5 featured cow in the November 2018 SydGen Sale, where she sold for $20,000. Grandam has sold progeny for $8500, $7000, $6500, and $5250.
We believe NextGen’s best traits are his superior feet and disposition - it is hard to find an EPD and performance package like Generation offers being at the best of their crop for feet and disposition! He had an actual birth weight of 55 pounds, weaned at 788 pounds, WR 107, YW 1458 lbs., YR 104, and gained 4.19 pounds per day on test. He posted a 37.61 adjusted scrotal, and a had 52” hip height.
NextGen will be used on fall heifers, and several of these heifers will sell in our 2019 sale.
