On Wednesday 24th October Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their weekly sale of young calves which incorporated the Autumn Show calves under 12 weeks. The day’s Champion was a British Blue heifer from Messrs Baillie, Hillhead of Covington, Lanark which sold for £390. The calf was sired by Nether Hall Extra Special. The Reserve Champion was consigned by WC & DJ Copland, Nether Collinhirst, Ecclefechan for a Limousin bull calf sired by their own Stock bull Juries Jason. We would like to thank Mr Richard Gardner for judging the classes and for Genus for their continued support with Sponsorship.
