Borderway Weekly Sale of Calves

10th July 2019

On Wednesday 10th July, Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their weekly sale of young calves.  A smaller show of 215 were forward with a large ring side of buyers ensured all calves were in great demand especially Native bred ones.  A top price of £500 was achieved on two occasions. Firstly for an outstanding 3 week old suckler bred British Blue heifer from Messrs Studholme, Nealhouse Farm, Carlisle and secondly for a strong suckler bred British Blue bull from Messrs Dixon and Chapelhow, Westfield House Farm, Port Carlisle.  Younger black and whites would be cheaper on the week, although strong reared black and whites calves continue to be good to sell.
