"A tradition in Charolais quality"

The hallmark of the Laue Ranch cowherd is the development of solid, productive female families. Toward that end, we place great emphasis on mothering ability and milk production. In many cases, when we look at one of our cows – be it a Linda, a Wanda, a Brand, or another one of our families – we are viewing her with a perspective that goes back ten generations. This cowherd has never been disrupted by any sort of dispersal or auction – we view it as a factory that is designed to turn out a quality product for our customers. We have selected a few examples to feature here.

  • The very definition of a good cow, she has productive daughters in the herd and her sons are profit makers for commercial breeders

  • A Tennessee junior selected a recent heifer as a show prospect

  • In this case, the outstanding EPDs match the cow
