Borderway Weekly Sale of Calves

17th October 2018

On Wednesday 17th October Harrison & Hetherington Limited held their weekly sale of young calves with a larger entry of 305 forward.

A good ringside of buyers ensured that younger calves were sharper on the week with continental heifers and black & whites taking the biggest lift. Strong continental calves would be slightly easier on the week. A top price of £490 was achieved for a strong Limousin bull from Messrs Livingstone, Kirtlevale, Gretna.
