Optics = Optimal

In our quest to find the most “optimal” bull to be sold in the spring of 2021, Optics met the mark!  Although he is not extreme in any one area, we feel he is optimal in nearly every area!  His EPD package instantly drew our attention, his video further sparked our interest, and by the time we evaluated the bull in person as well as FOUR of the females in his pedigree, we knew this was the bull to own! 

Where can a cattleman go and view three generations of cows behind a bull?  With Optics, we saw his dam, grandam, and great grandam, and were impressed with each generation.  His grandam has earned Pathfinder honors, and his 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation dams have all served as donors for Raml Cattle.  His great grandam is still going strong at 10 years of age, and she produced the $28,000 Raml Rugby 7103 owned by ABS.  She is a beautiful uddered, excellent footed, smooth walking female.  We could tell she has passed along superior foot quality to each successive generation of females.

Hoover Angus purchased Optics for $29,000, then partnered up with the runner-up bidders after the sale, Panther Creek Ranch and Cattle Visions, to make the owner’s slate complete along with the Raml family.  Optics quickly froze over 500 units of semen this spring.

Optics weaned at 812 pounds, WR 112, YW 1420 lbs., YR 113, and had an adjusted 41 cm scrotal.  He is wide based, thick, smooth shouldered, and offers the frame and stretch desired by Hoover Angus customers.  His pedigree is a complete outcross to our program, and the vast majority of current Angus pedigrees.

Sire Rangefinder was the $29,000 selection of ABS in the 2018 Raml sale.  Three impressive Rangefinder sons in the 2021 Raml sale averaged $15,500.

Optics is currently at Cattle Visions in Missouri, then will come home to Hoover Angus to service heifers and cows.  We welcome you to visit either Hoover Angus to see Optics or any other herd sire we have on the farm.

Semen is available through Cattle Visions for $30/unit and $40/certificate.  In just four collections, Optics froze 726 units of semen!  Optics will see significant usage at Hoover Angus in 2021!
