Borderway Calf Sale

23rd October 2019

On Wednesday 23rd October Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their Annual Autumn  Show and Sale of young calves with another good entry of 297 forward. The Show was judged expertly by Mr & Mrs Kelcher who awarded the Champion to a superb suckler bred Limousin heifer from Messrs Gilvear & Sons, Graystale Farm, Stirling which went on to make £350.  The Reserve was the first placed bull calf from Turnbull Farming, Plumpton which made £370.  We would like to thank Genus for their continued sponsorship of the Calf show at Borderway.

Top price on the day was a strong British Blue bull from Messrs Fisher, Smalmstown which sold for £405.  Continental calves continue to be difficult to cash especially stronger heifers. A plainer show of black and whites with young plain calves hard to sell with buyer requiring stronger types.
