On Monday 1st April Harrison & Hetherington Ltd held their weekly sale of breeding sheep.
A much larger show of ewes and lambs were forward, with a very big ringside of buyers in attendance. Demand on the week was less, due to the quality on offer, with a large proportion of the sale having very young lambs.
The strong units once again were once again competitively bid for, seeing a tremendous run of Continental cross ewes with ¾ Texel cross lambs at foot from Messrs D Wannop, High Acres, Carlisle, averaging at £82.41 for the run.
Messrs MacIntyre, Downan Farm Ballantrae consigned their first annual consignment of ewes and lambs, seeing a very good top quality run selling to a top of £94.50 for a tremendous 3 shear Texel cross ewe with a Beltex lamb at foot.
