HX2 Angus Beef
HX2 Cattle Company was founded by Cathy and
Jim Hoffman in Norwood, Colorado, a small ranching community located high on Wright’s Mesa, west of Telluride. In 2005, beginning with prize winning lines of nationally known Angus producer, Bob Hardman, the Hoffman's have specifically selected genetically superior lines from the top 10 bulls in the Angus breed to produce seed stock of unparalleled quality and high altitude soundness.
Using 50K genetic testing and yearly PAP testing of each animal to ensure genotypical and phenotypical reliability, HX2 Cattle Co produces Bulls and Heifers with extraordinary carcass traits and confirmation, temperament and virility, thus ensuring the consistent improvement in quality and profitability of your herd. Select bulls and cows produced by HX2 carry the AAA "Pathfinder" designation.
