H&H move Texel and dairy sale to suit zone changes

As a result of yesterday’s announcement from DEFRA regarding the scheduled movement of the rest of England to move in to a bluetongue protection zone on or after September 1, Harrison and Hetherington have re-scheduled some of their major sales.


The annual Solway and Tyne Texel Club show and sale which has some 835 pedigree sheep entered, will now go ahead on Friday 29 August for females and Saturday 30 August for rams.


In addition to that the dispersal of almost 300 head of Holstein Friesian commercial and pedigree cattle from Highberries Farming, Kirlinton, will now go ahead on Saturday 30 August to maximise potential customers from free areas.


Speaking to Taking Stock, H&H operations director David Pritchard said: “The movement of the sales will help maximise sales opportunitites for both vendors and buyers and will mean we can retain the 450 sheep entered by Scottish vendors.”
