At Borderway Mart on Monday 16th April, Harrison & Hetherington held their weekly sale of store and breeding sheep.
A larger show of ewes and lambs were forward proving all sheep very well bid for and sold to the vendors advantage.
Top price of the day was once again a tremendous Texel cross shearling with Beltex lamb at foot, peaking at £110 per head shown by Messrs MacIntyre, Downan Farm, Girvan, Ayrshire. This tremendous run of 77 lives averaged £86.41 per life and £249.27 per unit, for a mixture of shearlings to aged ewes.
Many more units could have been sold with ease, seeing demand getting stronger week by week.
