On Wednesday 15th August Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their weekly sale of young calves with a bigger show of 244 calves forward with a larger number of strong well reared calves which were an  excellent trade. Topping the sale  on three occasions at £495 twice from Messrs Saunders for suckler bred Limousin bulls and thirdly for a superb British Blue bull from Evening Hill Farm Ltd, Carlisle.  Strong Black and whites continue to be good to sell although younger plainer calves would be easier on the week.
