“When you can’t find ‘em any better, use your own!” is what John always says.  And it’s true, why not use your own sires when you can’t go elsewhere and find them any better than what you can raise!

Hoover Top Gun was retained for natural service duties at Hoover Angus, and his first calves were weaned in the fall of 2017.  Top Gun is a big framed, super long bodied bull.  His individual performance data: BW 80 lbs., WW 814 lbs., WR 100, YW 1427 lbs., YR 103, IMF 3.08, ratio 106, ribeye 17.0”, ratio 106.

Donor dam J54 is a super low birth weight cow with a beautiful udder.  She serves as a working donor.  J54’s sons work for Bill Archer, Darrell Wagoner, Loren Parkhurst, David Carrier, and Roger Tibben.  David’s bull was a photo feature in our 2016 auction.  Two daughters work for Todd Creason and two for Dan Smith.  J54 records 13-110 IMF ratio and 13-100 ribeye ratio.

Another son of J54 was selected for use in the Hoover herd as a herd sire.  He was the 11th top weaning weight bull of his crop at 848 pounds.  Prior to his use, he injured his testicles, and never recovered from the injury. 

J54 is a full sister to former Hoover herd sire H&K Friction G290, who was the 9th top weaning weight bull of his crop.  G290 produced some excellent calves, adding style and eye appeal to his progeny.

Pathfinder and donor grandam is approaching 14 years old and still going strong!  In 2016, she weaned an 833 pound bull calf to tie as the 15th top weaning weight bull calf of the crop!  I’d say C344 is still pulling her share of the load at Hoover Angus!  C344 has been flushed three different years, yet maintains an incredible 361 day calving interval on her 12 natural progeny!  Very, very few donor cows in America could beat this record!  Even better, C344 has beautiful udder shape, attachment, and teat size, especially for a cow her age.  C344 records 12-98 BWR, 12-107 WR, and 10-104 YR.

C344 has six daughters working in the Hoover herd, all with superior udders.  One of these daughters was the #1 adjusted weaning weight heifer calf of her crop at 790 pounds!

Heifers will sell bred to Top Gun in our February 6, 2018 sale.
