Borderway Store and Weaned Cattle Sale

18th April 2018

Harrison & Hetherington had forward 1038 head of cattle consisting of 706 catalogued Store Cattle, un-entered Store bulls and Stirks, 299 Calves and 33 Dairy cattle including the monthly sale for the Border & Lakeland Holstein Club.

As customers catch up with spring work, Borderway was quieter than usual, however trade remained buoyant for all classes.
