A colossal entry of cows this week with entries from over the border in Roxburghshire and from deepest Cumbria, all selling extremely well and to competitive rates leaving all vendors satisfied with their days trading.
Trade maintains previous weeks rates and unlike other centres, was not affected by larger numbers forward.
The quality on show was predominantly made up of feeding sorts with a large proportion of the sale compromising of non-assured and first crossed cows. This had no detriment to the trade leaving a sale average of 173ppk for ninety-two forward.
The sale was led by a Lim x cow from Messrs Charlton, Whiteside selling to 235.5ppk
