Borderway Store and Breeding Sheep Sale

23rd April 2018

At Borderway Mart on Monday 23rd April, Harrison & Hetherington held their weekly sale of store and breeding sheep.

A much larger show of ewes and lambs were forward with quality units well sought after. However ewes with younger lambs proved harder to cash.

Topping the trade at £150 per life was a pen of Beltex cross ewes with Beltex lambs at foot, consigned by Messrs Mullholland, Midtown Farm, Great Orton. Followed by another great pen selling to £140 per head. This good consignment later went on to average £106 per life.

Many more units could have been sold with ease, seeing demand getting stronger week by week. Please contact David Fearon on 07764573436.
