Borderway Weekly Sale of Calves

6th November 2019

On Wednesday 6th November Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their weekly sale of calves with another pleasing entry of 285 forward.    Strong continental bull calves would be sharper on the week although all other classes would be cheaper than previous weeks.  Top price of £460 was a strong British Blue bull from Messrs Fisher, Smalmstown, Longtown.  A very plain show of black and whites were on offer and again they were cheaper than previous weeks.
