On Tuesday 20th August Harrison & Hetherington Ltd held their fortnightly sale of store cattle at Lockerbie Auction Mart.
Cattle once again excedded expectations and were a good trade throughout all things considered. The finishing trade remains low and this has had an effect on the store prices, however, not to the extent that one may think.
Next store cattle sale at Lockerbie will be Tuesday 2nd September. For further details please contact Auctioneers Joel McGarva 07909985770, Michael Stewart 07753720323 or Cameron Robertson 07836233042.
