I know these folks they are from all of about 15 miles away from the home place. The local area has a high demand for polled black bulls but if they don't LOOK like straightbred angus they'll bring about the same as the reds but still about $3-5 more than the whites and yellows and greys and about $15-25 more than the hereford calves. The Laue's have had red charolais for a long time brought them in from Canada or something to that effect. We've never considered buying a bull from them and don't know that a whole lot of people really do in our immediate area.
