Borderway Store Cattle and Weanling Sale

22nd April 2015

Harrison & Hetherington Ltd had forward 830 head at their Weekly Wednesday Sale at Borderway consisting of 593 Store Cattle, Store Bulls and weanlings, 234 Calves and 3 Dairy Cattle.

The continuing spell of warm dry weather meant a quieter day, however trade in all departments proved much stronger than of late and many more could have been sold.

STORE CATTLE – A very good entry of 331 store bullocks and heifers whereby all classes were unbelievably easily sold with room left around the ringside.  A high of £1370 was reached for two marvellous British Blue cross steers from weekly supporters, Mr JJ Baxter, Eden Bank, Carlisle.  Heifers reached £1330 for a superb Limousin cross from Messrs T Watson & Sons, High Flowery Hirst, Carlisle.  Dairy bred peaked at £1190 for Montbelairdes from Messrs TB Stamper & Son, Rose Farm, Cockermouth.  Also included in the weekly sale was a good entry of Native bred store cattle.  Again all classes were easily sold and peaked at £1235 for an Aberdeen Angus steer from Messrs GG Smith, Campingholm, Gretna.  Heifers topped at £970 for an Aberdeen Angus from Messrs Thompson, Wood Head, Carlisle, and finally a 13 year old Highland cow peaked at £600 from Messrs G & A Hyslop, Bowbrig, Whauphill.
