2018 Hoover Angus Newsletter
Congratulations to 2XL Cattle Co. on their successful dispersal sale. In 2014, the 2XL family purchased Erica of Ellston M231 for $2800 in our annual production sale. She became a successful donor cow for them, with several extremely successful progeny. One son was the former #1 YW EPD sire in the breed; another son was in the World Champion Pen of Three Bulls for ADG at the 2016 Midland Bull Test. From their purchase price of M231 back in 2014 to when M231 sold in their December 8, 2018 dispersal sale, 2XL nearly quadrupled their purchase when she sold for $11,000!
Last chance for Bullseye semen!
As semen on growth & muscle sire Bullseye is now limited, we are offering 100 straws at $40/straw before his price moves to $75/straw on remaining units. There was a surge of sales this past spring on Bullseye semen, undoubtedly due to the popularity of his son, Hoover No Doubt, whose semen is not available. If you are interested in purchasing Bullseye semen (order may be of any size less than 100 units), please contact Landi at 641-344-7684.

Congratulations to Carlita McCoy, daughter of Dustin and Courtney McCoy, on her Champion Rate of Gain Steer at the 2018 Page County Fair gaining 4.30 pounds per day! This steer was sired by Hoover Counselor M456, purchased from Hoover Angus. This is the second year in a row Carlita has claimed top honors in the Rate of Gain division with a Hoover-sired steer. Carlita and her sister Maddie had three other steers that were also in the top 20 ADG steers at the fair among a field of 50.

New Herd Sire Addition!
Hoover Angus is extremely excited to announce the purchase of our new herd sire, Mogck Entice (formerly named MOGCK Enhance 2577). He was the top-selling bull in Mogck’s sale, and the phenotypically dominant bull in the sale displaying an exceptional set of feet.
