What about the Angus bull Hoover Dam? I have seen some of his offspring that seem pretty woofy. He supposedly ranks quite high in the Docility department.

He's a double bred EXT on the top side and a Rito 707 cow on the bottom. those Blackcap May cows are good cattle, and the EXT are good but slightly quicker than the average bear...
His Doc is to 10% and $EN is only top 85%. It looks like he is DNA tested, but only has interim EPD.
It will be interesting to see how he shakes out. Definitely a big bet.
Also, FWIW the Hoover Dams we have had have been nice cows and quiet, but they don't seem to live very long in our system.

His pedigree page at AAA shows no dna parentage or genomic profile results as of 2/20/18.

If you want docile cattle the bull cc& 7 is supposed to be really good
