Borderway Store and Weanling Cattle Sale

15th August 2012

Harrison and Hetherington Limited had forward 647 Store & weanling cattle, calves and dairy cattle on 15th August 2012. With less numbers forward in every category as customers play catch up with work on the land, all classes sold exceptionally well.

 

Store cattle

A smaller show of store cattle were forward due to the better weather conditions, although this helped improve trade with a very keen interest shown by purchasers. Top price of the day was a Limousin cross bullock selling to £1145 from Messrs Greenup of Crosshill, Irthington, whilst heifers peaked at £1135 for a Charolais cross heifer from Messrs Brough of Clappers Farm, Wigton. Finally bulls attained £1100 twice for Limousins from Messrs Thomlinson of Park View, Carlisle.
