Borderway Calf Sale

24th January 2018

On Wednesday 24th January Harrison & Hetherington Limited had an entry of 241 calves.  All calves were in great demand with a large ring side of buyers ensuring all were dearer on the week.  A top price of £500 was achieved on three occasions, twice from Messrs Reed, Moss Side, Newton Arlosh, Wigton for strong British Blue bulls and for a shapely Limousin bull from Messrs Carlyle Slealands Burn, Longtown.  Black and whites were a fantastic trade especially for stronger older calves.  Many more calves could have been sold to the vendor’s advantage.
