Borderway Calf Sale

19th September 2018

On Wednesday 19th September  Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their weekly sale of young calves with a larger show of 321 forward.  A good entry of strong calves were dearer on the week topping at £555 for a suckler bred Limousin bull from Messrs Wilson, Broomberry Farm, Ayr.  Younger plain Continental and native bred calves were harder to cash with buyers paying for well bred and reared calves.  Strong black and whites continue to be good to sell although younger plainer calves were more difficult to sell.
