MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Increased cattle marketing and price de-
clines in the dressed trade had a bearish influ-
ence on most slaughter classes. Slaughter steers
sold generally steady to $1.00 lower; heifers
steady to 750 lower. Cows closed 25-750 lower
at most points. Stockers and feeders were
active and closed mostly steady to 500 higher
Barrows and gilts sold steady to 250 higher to
recover the previous week's downturn. Sows sold
strong to 750 higher. Slaughter lambs were
uneven, with closing sales steady to 500 lower
at most points.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES LSarp price
declines on carcass beef at major wholesale
dressed meat centers and increased cattle re-
ceipts had a decidedly bearish influence in
trading after the initial session. Steer and
heifer prices advanced on Monday at most termi-
nals, although prices turned lower on following
sessions erasing a portion of the previous week's
sharp advance. Slaughter steers and heifers
sold out of first hands at the 7 markets totaled
113,500 head compared 73,600 the previous week
and 121,300 a year earlier. The average weight
of beef steers at the 7 markets was 1155// the
heaviest since early January 1959. Slaughter
steers were generally steady to 500 lower at
most terminals with high-Good and Choice year-
lings under 115'" showing the least decline.
Chicago, Omaha and Sioux City registered de-
clines of 500-$1.00 on steers grading Good and
below and all steers over 1300#. Heifers were
generally steady to 750 lower. Cows 25-75?
lower except strong to 500 higher at St. Joseph
and Kansas City. Bulls were steady to $1.00
higher and vealers steady to $1.00 higher at St.
Paul and St. Louis. Bulk of the supply at most
points was comprised of slaughter steers and
heifers grading Good and Choice.
Eighteen loads of Prime 1150-1365# steers
brought $30.00 in Chicago on Monday, the highest
since June but bulk of Choice and Prime 900-
1400,i sold from $26.00-29.25 at the close with
only seven loads at $29.50. At other terminals
a few mixed Choice and Prime 1150-150'CL steers
brought S27.00-28.00 while bulk of the high-Good
and Choice 900-13.'". sold at $24.25-27.00. Some
Choice and mixed Choice and Prime 15, -1157#
steers moved at '24.50-27.50 with a few Prime
1450# to $28.50 in Chicago where a few high-
Choice 975-11'"C'. yearlings sold at $28.50 late.
Good steers brought $22.50-26.00. Mixed Choice
and Prime heifers cashed at $26.25-27.75 with
several loads from $28.00-28.50 in Chicago early
in the week. Choice heifers brought $24.75-
26.75 and Good $22.00-24.75. Utility and Com-
mercial cows went at $14.00-16.50; Canners and
Cutters $11.50-15.00.

STOCKER AND ?ZLDF' CATTLE AND CALVES -
Receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and calves


at terminal markets were considerably larger
than during either of the two previous weeks
when the year end holidays tended to interrupt
marketing. Good and Choice grades made up a
relatively large percent of the supplies, in-
cluding a substantially larger number of Choice
calves than either of the two previous weeks.
Moderate numbers of two year old feeder steers
also were on offer, majority of which had
already had at least a start on grain feeds.
However, yearling steers continued to predomi-
nate. Weather conditions over much of the mid-
west continued unusually favorable for the
winter handling and feeding of livestock. This,
coupled with abundant feed supplies and current
price levels for slaughter cattle encouraged
widespread interest and fairly aggressive demand
for stockers and feeders. Trading generally was
brisk at steady to 500 higher 'prices with stock
calves 500-$1.00 up at Sioux City. The only
exception to the steady to stronger price trend
was at Kansas City where feeder steers closed
weak.
Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers
brought $22.50-26.25, majority $25.00-26.00.
licot many over 950# exceeded $25.50, but load
Choice partly fattened 1025# brought $26.50 and
at Sioux City a load of Choice 80O reached
$27.00. Medium and low-Good feeders bulked at
$20.00-23.50. Scattered shipments Choice 500-
625# stock steers brought $29.00-355.00. However,
most Good and Choice 550-750# stockers went from
$24.00-28.25; Medium and low-Good $20.00-24.50.
Few loads Choice 504-573# heifers brought
$26.00-27.00, other Good and Choice yearling
heifers $22.00-25.00. At least 10 loads Choice
and Fancy 350-50)4; steer calves brought $33.00-
35.00, other Good and Choice steer calves
$24.00-32.50, bulk $26.00-31.50; Good and
Choice heifer calves $22.00-28.50, several loads
40,,0-460 / $29.00-30.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Marketings of
hogs at the 12 markets totaled 543,000 head,
19 percent more than the previous holiday-
shortened week but 235 percent short of the same
week a year earlier. Supplies were comprised
mainly of shipments of mixed U. S. No. 1-3, 190-
??0, barrows and gilts with a rather generous
showing of 250-27C0 at many of the western corn-
belt markets. The average weight of all barrows
and gilts at the 8 markets was 236/ or the
same as the previous week. Uniform U. S.
No. 1, and 1-2, barrows and gilts under 230#
were relatively scarce over much of the area.
Sows made up 7-11 percent at the various
points. Shipping demand was only moderate dur-
ing the week with best outlet again centering
on 1,:-22'0" barrows and gilts. The moderate
supply of sows moved readily on most sessions.
Only minor changes developed in price trends on
butcher hoFs, but prices on 240'-300C continued








very uneven. Barrows and gilts closed steady to
250 higher at most of the midwest terminals.
Sows were strong to 756 higher, largely 50-754
up.
At the close U. S. No. 1 and 1-2, 180-?2.'
barrows and gilts sold at $17.50-18.50, largely
$17.75-18.25. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and 2-3, 180-240,
bulked at M17.00-17.75. U. S. 2-3, and U. S. 5,
240-270# butchers sold unevenly over a wide
spread of $16.25-17.50. U. S. 1-3 270-600#
sows brought $13.00-15.75, up to f16.00 at a
few points.
Feeder pigs closed steady at Sioux City and
steady to 254 lower at St. Paul. Good and Choice
130-170# feeder pigs at Sioux City brought
$16.00-17.00, few Choice $17.25 with Good and
Choice 130-160# at St. Paul $16.50-17.25.
HOGS In Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area barrows and gilts weighing over 240# com-
prised around 30 percent of the butcher supply
which was a noted increase over the previous
week. Sows made up 6.5 percent of the receipts
compared 8 percent the previous week. Barrows
and gilts 180-220# closed steady to 250 higher
while heavier weights were 30-400 higher. Sows
closed 10-500 higher on weights under 400#, with
heavier sows 50-600 higher. On the close U. S.
No. 1-3, 2,'0-24Cv- barrows and gilts and includ-
ing few 190-200# brought $16.75-17.50 with
limited volume No. 1-2 $17.50-17.75 and few
selected No.1 200-220 $17.75-18.00. U. S.-1-3
270-400Q sows brought -13.75-15.40; Nor 2-35
4r".-s5r, 12.00-14.40.

SWHFP AND IAI3S Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets totaled 111,000 head,
35 percent more than the previous week but little
changed from a year ago. The increased volume
of slaughter lambs met a narrow demand and lower
prices at most terminals. Price downturns on
dressed lamb was a bearish factor in the live
trade. Slaughter lambs closed mainly steady to
500 lower aside from steady to 500 higher at
Omaha, Fort Worth and Indianapolis. Wooled lambs
over 11# and shorn over 105# were marketed in
moderate numbers and frequently discounted in
price from lighter weight lambs. Slaughter ewes
were steady; feeder lambs steady to 500 higher.
Choice and Prime 85-111# wooled slaughter
lambs sold from $16.75-17.75, few $18.00-18.25 or.
late rounds; several consignments of Choice and
Prime 111-125# wooled lambs $15.00-17.25. Good
and Choice 80-112, $16.00-17.00, few to $17.50;
Utility and Good $12.50-16.00. Choice and Prime

shorn pelts sold from $15.75-17.25, large share
$16.00-16.50; Choice and Prime 110-120# $15.25-
16.25. Good and Choice shorn lambs $15.50-16.50.
Cull to Choice wooled slaughter ewes brought
$4.00-7.50, few Cull $2.50.
Choice 65-840 feeder lambs sold from $17.00-
18.00; several shipments 65-75# feeders $17.75-
18.50, Good and Choice 65-81# 251.50-18.00,
largely $16.00-18.00; Medium and Good *'1.50-
16.50. Load and a half Good and Choice 84# shorn


feeders $16.75 at Sioux Falls.
Receipts of sheep and lambs in the Interior
Iowa-Southern MLfWesota area totaled 40,000
head, slightly less than the previous week, but
51 percent more than a year earlier. Slaughter
lambs were weak to 500 lower; slaughter ewes
steady. Demand was decidedly narrow for wooled
lambs over 110# and shorn lambs over 105#.
Shorn offerings comprised around 30 percent of
the lamb supply.
On Friday, Choice and Prime 80-105# wooled
slaughter lambs delivered to packing plants
brought $16.50-17.50 including a large share at
$17.00; Choice and Prime 105-115# $15.50-17.00,

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Supply and demand for
beef and lamb at New York was pointedly un-
balanced with carryover quite large for these
classes. Veal, calf and pork movement was gener-
ally fair as veal was in relatively short supply
and the fact that pork was largely featured at
the retail level. Trading for beef was moder-
ately active at other' points along the Eastern
Seaboard with hindquarters moving best and chucks
hardest to move. Veal and lamb was active under
mostly a good demand while pork outlet was un-
even but all cuts fairly well cleared. Supplies
of all classes were normal except at Philadelphia
where beef unloads were slightly above normal
with other classes below normal.
Steer beef closed 500-$1.75 lower at New
York, weak to mostly 50# lower at Philadelphia,
otherwise steady to $1.00 higher. Cow beef sold
strong to $2.00 higher, except fully $1.00 lower
at New York. Veal and calf sold $1.00-2.00
higher at New York with the trend steady to $1.00
lower at other points. Lamb prices declined
$1.00-2.00 at New York and were steady to weak
at Philadelphia, but steady at other markets.
Pork loins closed steady to $3.00 lower; fresh
skinned hams mostly steady, except $4.00 lower
at New York; Boston butts were $1.00-2.00 lower
and spareribs steady for the most part.
Outlet was generally poor for near normal
supplies of kosher steer beef and lamb, however,
small supplies of veal and calf were in fair
demand. Choice and Prime kosher steer fore-
quarters closed $1.00-2.00 lower; lamb $1.00 to
mostly $3.00 lower. Kosher veal and calf prices
were unchanged.

CHICAGO Supplies of all fresh meats were
normal, but more than adequate for trade require-
ments. High-Good and Choice grades predominated
in the beef supply. Choice offerings repre-
sented the bulk of the lamb, with most carcasses
weighing over 55# and relatively few in the
35-45# weight range. Narrow eastern outlets and
a poor demand for most primal cuts locally re-
sulted in lower carcass beef prices. Rounds met
a fair demand on the initial session but slow
thereafter. Arm and squarecut chucks were most
difficult to sell and closed $2.50 lower com-
pared to prevailing prices late last week. Veal
prices were unchanged in a moderately active
trade. Trading for lamb was moderately active
early but slow on the close with prices working
lower. Most local interests participated in the
trade for various primal cuts of lamb through
Wednesday with late trade dull. Spareribs moved
into most channels with pork loins and Boston
butts slow. Steer and heifer beef closed 50$-
$1.00 lower; veal steady; lamb steady to $1.00
lower; pork loins steady to 50# higher; Boston
butts 4-8# $1.50-2.00 lower and spareribs $1.00-
1.50 higher.


PACIFIC COAST Trading for steer and heifer
beef was moderately active with supplies about
normal, except for 500-650# carcasses which were
limited. Cow beef was in fully normal supply,
except Utility scarce in the northwest. A good
demand prevailed for the moderate supply of calf,
veal and lamb. Trading was moderately active
for the liberal supply of fresh and smoked pork.
Steer beef sold steady to 50# higher, ex-
cept Choice 650-700# 50# lower in Los Angeles;
cow beef was uneven, most sales $1.00-1.50 lower
in Los Angeles, steady to $1.00 higher in San
Francisco and about steady in the northwest;
calf and veal steady to $1.00 higher, the advance
in the northwest with some sales of veal $2.00
higher in Portland. Lamb sold steady to $1.00
higher, instances $2.00 higher in Portland, but
mostly steady in San Francisco. Fresh pork was
steady to $2.00 lower, except pork loins $1.00
higher in the northwest; smoked hams were $1.00-
2.00 lower; bacon $1.00-2.00 higher and other
smoked pork steady.

CABLOT MEAT TRADI REVIEWS

MIDWEST CABLOT DRESSED MEAT SUMMARY -
General price declines were recorded on all
classes of fresh meats under a rather poor de-
mand. Narrow outlets at eastern centers was the
main contributing factor. Supplies of all
classes were normal with clearance only fair on
most classes. However, clearance was complete
on fresh hams and pork sides.
Steer, heifer and cow beef closed mostly
$1.00 lower, instances $1.50 off. Lamb sold
steady to $1.25 lower; pork loins steady to $1.00
lower, Boston butts $1.50-2.00 off and fresh hams
$1.00-2.00 higher. Pork sides were steady to
300 higher.
Choice 600-700# steer carcasses closed at
$42.00-43.00, few carlots $43.50; 700-800C $40.75-
41.50, few $42.00; Good 600-700# mostly $39.50-
41.00; 700-800# $38.50-40.50. Choice heifer beef
500-700# $41.00-41.50, Good $38.50-39.50. Utility
cow beef $29.00-30.00, few carlots $31.00. Choice
including some Prime 45-55* lamb carcasses
$34.75-37.50, few cars 35-45f $36.25-39.50; 55-65#
$32.25-32.75. Pork loins 8-12# $42.00-42.50;
fresh hams 12-140 $41.00-42.50; 14-16# $40.00-
41.00; Boston butts 4-8# $31.00-32.00. U. S. 1,
2 and 3 135-155# pork carcasses $24.90-25.90;
155-175# $24.60-25.60.
CABLOT SUMMARY Chicago, Denver, New York
and Philadelphia. Trading for most fresh meats
was slow as price declines were recorded on all
classes. Beef prices were under most pressure
due mainly to narrow eastern outlets. Steer
beef closed $1.00-2.00 lower; heifer beef steady
to $1.50 lower, mostly 500-$1.50 off; cow beef
$1.00-2.00 lower. Lamb sold mostly steady at
Denver and Philadelphia, but $1.00-2.50 lower at
Chicrto and New York. Pork loins closed steady
to $1.00 lower.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading in the Boston wool market was fair-
ly active with approximately five cars of greasy
domestic worsted wools sold at about steady
prices. Demand for pulled wools and noils was
moderately good with prices strong. Trading for
scoured shorn wools was slow with prices about
steady. Trading in the territory States was
slow with only occasional lots moved. The
staple end of the Sonora clip and some wool in
Ingram sold recently at strong prices. A little
early barn shearing had commenced in Ohio.
Midweek cables from Australia showed gener-
al activity with the Continent and Japan the
principal operators. Quotations were unchanged
compared to the December close. Trading in
South Africa opened about steady compared to the
pre-holiday recess with Italy and Germany domi-
nating under general competition. The market
in New Zealand opened with good general compe-
tition. Prices were steady with Europe domi-
nating. American topmakers were active in
Montevideo for 60s and 60/64s grades while
carpet type wools in Buenos Aires were very
active.
According to the Crop Reporting Board of
the Agricultural Marketing Service the average
price received by farmers for wool on December
15, 1960 was 40.20 per grease pound. This com-
pared to 39.0 for November 15, 1960 and 43.20
on December 15, 1959.
Fleece Wools Trading for fleece wools was
dull.
Territory Wools Graded territory 64s good
French combing and staple wool sold at $1.12
clean basis while graded 60/62s moved around
$1.08 and graded 56/58s at $1.06 clean basis.
Original bag, bulk fine and half-blood, good
French combing and staple wool sold in Utah at
$1.05-1.07 clean basis, delivered Boston. A
large 1960 reputation clip of bulk fine wool in
original bags sold in New Mexico at 420 grease
basis to the warehouse.
Texas Wools Graded staple Sonora wool
sold recently at $1.20-1.22 while another lot
brought the same price at Ingram, Texas.
Mohair The fall mohair clip had been
practically cleaned up at 91 for adult mostly
for shipment abroad. There was a little con-
tracting of the spring clip at 91 for adult
and $1.162 for kid hair by the warehouse.

was d-. Cabled quotations from foreign mar-
kets at week's end follow with combing wools

SHEEP AND LAMBS ON FEED JANUARY 1, 1961


SHEEP AND LAMBS ON FEED DOWN 2 PERCENT

The number of sheep and lambs on feed for market on January 1 was 2 percent
less than last year, according to the Crop Reporting Board. The number is
estimated at 4,255,000 head--66,000 head less than a year earlier.

The average price of good end choice feeder lanbs at Denver averaged
$16.48 per 100 pounds for the week ending October 8, 1960. Prices were about
the same in. late December averaging $16.50 at Denver during the week ending
December 31, 1960.

Weather conditions to January 1 in most parts of the country were favorable.
Forage in the West was significantly improved during November. Wheat pasture
has been mostly good for fall and winter grazing in the Southern and Central
Plains, but wet fields have limited grazing to some extent. Feed supplies were
generally abundant in the Corn Belt.

CORN BELT STATES UNCHANGED

In the North Central States 2,540,000 sheep and lambs were on feed, less
than one percent below the 2,552,000 head on feed January 1, 1960. The sharpest
decline was in Nebraska where numbers were 13 percent below the previous year.
Other decreases were: South Dakota, 6 percent; and Illinois, 3 percent. States
showing no change were Ohio, Michigan, and Iowa. Increases were as follows:
Indiana, Minnesota, and North Dakota, each 10 percent; Kansas, 7 percent;
Wisconsin and Missouri, each 5 percent.

Shipments of feeder sheep and lambs into 8 of the Corn Belt States for
which data are available totaled 2,216,572 head from July through November 1960.
This was 12 percent more than for the same period of 1959. However, total
commercial slaughter in U. S. for September through November was 11 percent above
the previous year. Federally inspected slaughter for December was about 5
percent above the previous year.

WESTERN STATES DOWN 6 PERCENT

Sheep and lambs on feed in the 11 Western States totaled 1,409,000 head--
6 percent less than the 1,494,000 head on feed a year earlier. Decreases were
shown in Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, and California. These decreases were
only partially offset by increases in other Western States.

In Colorado, the main feeding State, the 540,000 head on feed January 1
was 3 percent less than the 555,000 head on feed a year earlier. In California
the number of sheep and lambs on feed at 289,000 head was 20 percent less than
the 361,000 head on feed on January 1, 1960.
