Borderway Annual Autumn Suckled Calf Show and Sale

29th September 2018

On Saturday 29th September Harrison and Hetherington held their annual Special sale of 804 Suckled calves at Borderway Mart

The Show and sale was very kindly sponsored by Capontree Vets, David Allen, Sure Calf and Border Cars

The Pre sale judging was expertly conducted by Mr Michael Swan, Little Ouseburn, York who awarded the Championship Rosette to an outstanding Black Limousin cross heifer consigned by Messrs Telfer and Claxton, Newton High House.  This eyecatching heifer was sired by the registered Limousin bull Mereside Godolphin and is out of a Pure British Blue cow.  She later went on to top the sale at £2,600 selling to show enthusiast Mr B Dufton, Aberdeenshire.

The Reserve Champion was the 1st prize British Blue heifer from Messrs Harrison, Grange Hall.  Their heifer was sired by a homebred cross Limousin/Britishblue bull and was out of a pure bred Limousin cow.  She later sold for £1600 to J Wareham, Sussex.

Messrs Telfer & Claxton also topped the bullock section at £2000 with a Limousin cross which sold to A J Forsyth of Newton Stewart.

The sale was a flying success with a packed ringside of buyers, cattle were seen to be not as fit as in previous years with the summer taking its toll on many, however an overall average of £1011.43 (-£19) was achieved.
