On Monday 3rd June, Harrison & Hetherington Ltd held their weekly sale of breeding sheep.
A smaller show for ewe and lambs were forward, whereby demand proved very strong for young stock sheep and continental bred sheep.
Top price of the day was £93 per life and that was paid for a pen of 10 Texel cross hoggs with single lambs from Messrs Browell, Quarry House Farm, Hexham. This good run also sold a tremendous pen of shearlings with twins to £88 per life or £264 a unit. A pen of 3 crop ewes from the same farming, also selling for £84 or £252 per unit.
Continental ewes and fell ewes saw a large demand, with many more could have been sold to the vendors advantage.
