At Lockerbie on Tuesday 10th September Harrison & Hetherington held their annual sale of Hill Cheviot wedder and store lambs.
With an abundance of grass and a mainly steady prime lamb trade as up to late the lambs on show were well up on the year and well bid for. This high demand meant many more could have been easily sold.
The Champion pen of Cheviot lambs were from Messrs Menzies, Chanlockfoot and sold for a healthy £56. The top price for Beltex lambs was £63 from Mr Mandell, Victoria House.
Leading prices: Beltex £63 Victoria House NC Cheviot £56 Chanlockfoot, £54 Lawesknowe, £52 Sundhope Farm Texel £55 Wardlaw
