Borderway Weekly Sale of Store & Weanling Cattle

26th June 2019

Harrison & Hetherington Ltd experienced numbers short of previous weeks at their weekly sale at Borderway, numbers totalled 680 head, with only 478 catalogued Store cattle, un-entered Store bulls and Weanlings forward out of the 603 entered along with 202 Calves.

With grass needing dealt with, consignors took advantage of a better day. The ringside was very busy, trade eased on the week as has been expected for some weeks, however values remain highly respectable and many more could have been sold.

STORE CATTLE – A strong catalogued entry of 389 head were forward at the weekly sale.  The sale topped at £1200 for a Limousin bullock consigned by Julie Brough, The Clappers and from the same home topping the heifers at £1165 for a fantastic Limousin.  An active ring of over 30 buyers ensured cattle were well bid for.
