Borderway Calf Sale

11th October 2017

On Wednesday 11th October Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their weekly sale of young calves with another fantastic 376 forward.  Todays sale included the Autumn Show for calves under 12 weeks.  The show was kindly judged by Mr Eric Hetherington who did a fantastic job and awarded the Champion to a ¾ British Blue Bull from A Riley, Underhelm, Grasmere which on to make £490. Mr Riley also obtained the Reserve Champion with a British Blue Heifer.  Our thanks goes to Genus for their continued sponsorship of the Show.  Top price on the day was £500 for a terrific Limousin bull from Messrs Wilson, Street Head, Ivegill.  The top end continental calves were a terrific trade and dearer than previous weeks.  Black & Whites would be slightly easier for plainer types although strong calves are still good to sell.
