Hook's Baltic 17B

GW - WBF Substance 820Y  x  Hook's Sarita 92Y
Homozygous Black, Homozygous Polled


  • 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.


  • GW Substance son out of a Dikeman’s Sure Bet cow with substantially more growth

  • 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.


  • 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.
