On Wednesday 27th September Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their weekly sale of young calves with a smaller show of 255 forward. On the whole a plainer entry of calves was entered but were a sharper trade on the week.  Young beef bred calves were especially in demand.  Top price was £570 for a suckler bred Limousin  bull from Messrs Short, Ouston, Whitfield, Hexham.  Black and whites were also a better trade compared to the previous week notably the younger plainer sorts.
