Fantastic First Sale
Harrison & Hetherington held their opening fortnightly sale of store cattle of 2021 at Lockerbie Auction Mart on Tuesday 12th January which met with high demand and a tremendous trade throughout.
Aberdeen Angus bullocks topped at £1280 for a batch of strong cattle from Wintersceugh Farms; the same home also had Aberdeen Angus bullocks up to £1230 and £1110. Limousins topped at £1220 from regular consignors, Messrs Richardson of Purdomstone.
Heifers topped at £1150 for an outstanding Limousin from Messrs Common of Crossdykes. 278p was the top PPK of the day for a pen of four ten month old Limousin stirks from Messrs Glendinning, Newfield. Messrs Robson of Laverockhall realised 256ppk for a pair of nine month old Limousin stirks weighing 394kg.
Some buyers still went home empty handed which bodes well for our next sale in two weeks time on Tuesday 26th January.
