Harrison & Hetherington Ltd held their Annual Prize Show & Sale of 63 Beef Breeding Cattle at Middleton in Teesdale Mart on Tuesday 21st November.
A small but useful entry met a very selective enquiry. The sale was topped at £2650 by an outstanding British Blue cross heifer with a Limousin cross heifer calf at foot from Messrs J & VM Bussey, Streatlam.
Prior to the sale the judge Mr J Richardson, High Shipley awarded the Simpson Fuel Oils Perpetual Trophy for the best heifer with calf at foot to Messrs J & VM Bussey, Streatlam whose superb Limousin cross heifer and 7/8th bred bull calf at foot went on to sell for £2520.
