If you are looking for a super calving ease bull to save replacement daughters with superior udder quality and more eye appeal and fleshing ability, check out Cut Above!  Our oldest Cut Above progeny will be two year-olds in 2020, and we have noticed we like them more the older they get!  There are many outstanding Cut Above bred heifers that will calve in the spring of 2020; some of these will sell in our February 4, 2020 sale.

Hoover Cut Above was the third top-selling bull at $24,000 in our 2017 auction selling to Accelerated Genetics and Hart Farms.   Cut Above has been used successfully on cows and heifers at Hoover Angus.  He is a “true blue” calving ease bull that works well on heifers. 

Cut Above was a member of the “Fab Five”, the set of 5 flush brothers that averaged $23,800!  This flush led off our sale, and for good reason.  Two of these flush brothers were selected by bull studs.  Cut Above was a bigger framed bull from this flush, still offering plenty of thickness. 

A maternal brother to Cut Above was the 2nd top selling bull of our 2016 auction at $30,000 to Alta Genetics.  This bull, Hoover Ambition, was the #1 adjusted weaning weight bull of our entire spring 2015 crop at 919 pounds.  A full sister to Ambition was the 3rd top weaning weight ET heifer and #1 YW ET heifer of our 2015 crop!

Donor dam L5 is one of our favorites. L5’s first daughter in production weaned the 9th top weaning weight heifer of her crop.  L5 records 3-106 WR on her natural progeny and 17-104 IMF ratio and 17-101 ribeye ratio.  L5 weaned an 842 pound heifer calf at Baldridges to ratio 107 in a small contemporary group of donor cows’ calves!

L5 was the standout heifer of her crop – she was the #1 adjusted weaning weight, #1 adjusted yearling weight heifer at 779 lbs., WR 116, YW 1160 lbs., YR 114.  She turned in a superior scan with a 7.05 IMF, ratio 119, and a 14.6” ribeye, ratio 119.  Among 88 contemporaries, she had the 5th largest ribeye scan.  Breed average ribeye scan for heifers is currently 9.73”.

A full brother to L5 is Hoover Counselor N29, the $39,000 sire working for Select Sires.

Pathfinder grandam G366 – I could write a book on this cow!  She is truly one of the most incredible females ever bred on our 92 year-old Angus farm.  She has grossed over $200,000 in registered progeny and embryo sales to be our #1 income-producing cow in history.  G366 has brought a total of 10 featured progeny to auction and her 16 progeny have averaged over $12,000.  She records 8-98 BWR and 8-107 WR with a 365 day calving interval on those 8 progeny.  That includes stealing flushes four different years!

Several of G366’s progeny have been among the top weaning weight calves of their crop.  L5, mentioned above, was the #1 WW heifer of her crop.  The very next year, G366 repeated this accomplishment with another #1 WW daughter.  To make it three years running, an ET son claimed #1 WW honors over the entire crop (ET and non-ET progeny) in 2015!

A daughter of G366 is the #1 indexing cow of the entire Hoover herd, one is the 6th top indexing cow, and two granddaughters are the 7th and 14th top indexing cows.  G366’s five daughters in the herd have an average 108 WR on their progeny!  Three daughters of G366 have earned Pathfinder honors.  G366 daughters produced the two lead-off bred heifers in our 2018 auction, selling for $48,000 and $22,000!

G366’s great grandam V65 is the grandam of Hoover Dam.  This Erica cow family has put 8 bulls in 6 different AI studs.

Semen is available for $20/Unit and $40/Certificate.
