The all-time top collection sire and all-time top semen sales sire as a cornerstone of the ORIgen program, this long-time favorite of visitors to ORIgen that ranked among the top 20 Angus sires for progeny registered for five consecutive fiscal years of the American Angus Association.
Hoover Dam has made his mark on the nation’s cow herd not by touting a few extreme EPDs, but as being a balanced-trait bull with no caution flags and he possesses a unique ability to produce calving ease, muscle, carcass quality, docility, and phenomenal daughters with impeccable udders, slick hair coats, overall soundness and great manners.
Hoover Dam semen sales have remained incredibly strong due to repeat commercial demand - buyers cite his predictable calving ease, calf crop uniformity and highly productive, functional daughters as their biggest reasons for repeat usage.
Hoover Dam progeny have exceptional thickness, especially for a bull with such a proven low birth weight and they offer eye appeal, power and mass in a moderate frame size package.
