At Borderway Mart on Monday 3rd December Harrison & Hetherington held their weekly sale of store sheep.
A smaller show of sheep forward saw a larger demand on the week with a very good ringside of buyers throughout the sale and all sheep selling to the vendors’ advantage.
The sale topped at £76 twice, firstly for a pen of 12 Texel lambs from Messrs Armstrong, Lanehead Farm, Brampton and secondly for a Texel from Messrs Osborne, Park Head Farm, Welton. Smaller lambs were very well bid for seeing all lambs make £40 plus.
Demand outnumbered the quantity coming forward and many more could be easily sold. More lambs of all classes are required. Please contact the Auctioneer David Fearon 07500173273 for further information.
