Borderway Special Autumn Suckled Calf Sale

26th September 2020

On Saturday 26th September Harrison and Hetherington held their annual special September sale of 593 suckled calves at Borderway Mart. Despite numbers being back on the year interest in this sale was at a level not seen for some time, this resulted in one of the best trades seen in this centre – at least since the August special sale!

The averages do not lie with the sale levelling at £1059, which is a massive £147 up on the year. Bullocks averaged £1085 and heifers at £1035. No fewer than 62 animals sold at £1200 or more with the majority of cattle 12 months or younger.

Mr Brian Hall, Ainstable Hall rang the bell with his run of 5 British Blue x Limousin heifers which sold to £1900 on three occasions and levelled at £1706. Messrs Robertson, Newton of Logierait made the long trip from Pitlochry and sold heifers to £1520 and bullocks to £1430 with his run of 20 averaging at £1211.50.

Katrina Donaldson, The Guards, Ireby topped the bullocks at £1470 with her sale entry and exceptional 14-month-old homebred Limousin.
