- Ellston Scheckel B97 is a direct daughter of Erica of Ellston G366, who is one of the most incredible females ever bred in the 90 year history of Hoover Angus. Ten of her sons have been sale features at Hoover Angus. G366 produced the lot #1 and #2 bulls in the 2017 Production Sale, selling for $14,500 and $9,500. G366 scanned a 131 IMF ratio, and a 115 Ribeye ratio individually.

M38’s first son was the lot #1 bull in the 2016 Hoover auction, selling for $14,500. M38’s heifer calf easily took #1 weaning weight calf of the 2017 crop, at 872 pounds. She was actually the heaviest weaning-weight heifer ever in the 90-year history of Hoover Angus. M38 is also the #1 indexing cow in the entire Hoover herd.
- Ellston Scheckel B97’s sire is the famous Basin Excitement, who is a big time spread bull, from birth weight to weaning weight. His progeny have shined in all herds he was used. He is a true calving ease bull, who transmits growth and performance second to none.

- Hoover Angus talks a lot about docility traits, and without question, you can absolutely see this first hand, as B97 was always the first calf to come up to you in a pen of 100. It was unreal how docile she was, compared to her herd mates.
