Hook`s Baltic 17B:
• Baltic is among the cleanest and most attractive of all the great Substance sons sold in the 2015 Bred for Balance sale. 7 sons of GW Substance averaged $14,857 that day and Baltic topped that high value group as the choice of the Carr family at Little Bitterroot Ranch for $30,000. EPD spread, balanced value, depth of body, stoutness, wonderful structure and great disposition are just a few of the reasons this group was so popular and why Baltic is so good. His top 1% value for Yearling Weight improvement couples well with a sire also predicted to be in the top 20% for calving ease. From a carcass value perspective he should greatly improve both marbling (top 2%) and tenderness (top 1%), two traits that should be high on everyone’s priority list. His mother is a young priority donor in the Hook Farms herd and is a direct daughter of the great Hooks Sarita 4S cow. One look at Baltic’s 3 flush mate sisters and you will understand why they too are slated to be important pieces of Tom’s program for years to come. Use Baltic to improve disposition as well with both Substance and Sure Bet in the pedigree for insurance of his top 1% ranking for making quiet cattle. Consider Baltic as a high value son of Substance with less skin in his front end and improved genetics for weaning and yearling performance.
