MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW
and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price trends on slaughter steers at midwest
terminals were uneven with weights under 1200#
selling steady to 25* higher, instances 50* up.
Heavier steers were in an increased supply and
generally sold steady to weak with sales at Omaha
and Sioux City steady to 500 off. Heifers were
generally steady to 25# higher, except at Omaha
and Sioux City where Standard to low-Choice sold
steady to 500 off. Cows closed strong to 75*
higher. Trading on stockers and feeders was
slow with prices steady to 50* lower. Barrows
and gilts closed 50#4-1.50 higher under the
influence of reduced marketing and higher prices
in the dressed trade; sows were largely 50*-
$1.00 up. Slaughter lambs were 504-$1.00 higher,
instances $1.50 up.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES "- Receipts at
the 12 markets totaled 204,000 head or 11 per-
cent less than the previous week. A large share
of this decrease was due to a reduction in
marketing of stockers and feeders. Receipts
included an increased showing of Good and Choice
1150-1550# steers while the number below 1100#
was reduced. Slaughter steers under 1200# sold
steady to 25* higher at most midwest terminals.
Heavier weights were steady to weak with sales
at Omaha and Sioux City steady to 50# off. Heif-
ers were generally steady to 25# higher,but weak
to 500 off on Standard to low-Choice at Omaha
and Sioux City. Cows were strong to 75* higher
and bulls averaged about steady. Vealers sold
$2.00-4.00 higher at St. Louis and St. Paul. The
price reaction to this uneven distribution as to
weight was clearly shown in the trend at several
major markets. In Omaha the average weight of
steers reached 1175# as compared with 1165# the
previous week and the 1193f average in Chicago
was heaviest in two years. Relatively high
prices of stocker and feeder cattle and low
feed cost were important factors contributing
toward a higher average weight.
In Chicago Prime 1150-1425# slaughter steers
brought $29.25-29.75 with Choice and Prime 900-
1400# $26.25-29.00, same grades 1400-1650#
$25.00-28.50. Elsewhere high-Choice and Prime
950-1550# steers sold from $27.25-28.25. Bulk
Choice 900-1300# $26.00-27.25 with Choice 1250-
1450# $25.25-26.25 at Omaha. Mixed high-Good
and low-Choice over the area $24.25-26.50; bulk
Good $25.25-25.75 with Good and Choice 900-1500#
$25.50-27.25 at Chicago. Mixed Choice and Prime
heifers brought $26.75-28.00; bulk Choice
$25.50-27.50; Good $22.?5-25.00, few loads high-
Good $25.75. Utility and Commercial cows sold
mostly $14.50-16.50; Canner and Cutter $12.00-
15.1;0.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and calves
at terminal markets included moderate numbers of


high-Good and Choice stocker yearlings and
calves as well as moderate number of well bred
feeder fleshed cattle. Majority of the feeders
already had received at least a limited turn on
grain feeds and there were scattered shipments
of 800-1100#, already showing sufficient finish
to grade high-Good and low-Choice in the
beef,included in feeder buyer purchases. At
Kansas City and Sioux City stockers and feeders
made up 50-55 percent of receipts but at most
other midwest markets supplies were relatively
small. Trading generally was slow with prices
unevenly steady to 500 lower. Severe cold and
snow over much of the nation was a factor which
at least temporarily tended to curtail demand.
Good and Choice 550-750# stock steers
bulked at $24.00-27.50, few loads Choice and
Fancy 527-606# $28.00-51.50. At Sioux City a
load of 606# was included at $51.00. Medium
and low-Good yearling stockers ranged from
$20.00-24.50, few Medium at Oklahoma City
$19.00. Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers
sold from $22.50-26.00, several loads Choice
800-850# $26.50-26.75. At Denver a few loads
partly fattened 1000-1100# sold- for further
feeding at $25.25-25.75. Good and Choice year-
ling heifers brought $21.50-25.50, few Choice
and Fancy 519-569# $26.00-27.50. At Chicago
Choice 825# partly fattened heifers cashed at
$25.00. The small supply of Choice and Fancy
steer calves brought $535.00-34.50, other steer
calves of Good and Choice grades largely $26.00-
52.50. Good and Choice heifer calves sold from
$22.00-28.00, few Choice and Fancy $28.50-50.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets The coldest
weather of the winter over much of the midwest
curtailed hog marketing rather sharply. With
the exception of holiday weeks, the 12 market
receipts of 280,000 was the smallest for any
week since the last of August. Receipts were
15 percent below the previous week and 30 per-
cent less than a year earlier. Mixed U. S. 1-5,
and 2-3, 190-2704 barrows and gilts made up the
bulk of the offerings with sows continuing
seasonally small. Sows comprised from 5 to 10
percent at the various markets. The reduced
supply and a higher dressed park trade influ-
enced rather sharp price advances on live hogs.
The primary concern of many buyers was to obtain
sufficient numbers to keep killing gangs oper-
ating. However, all buyers were aggressive
throughout the week. Although some weakness was
noted at a few markets on Friday, prices worked
progressively higher throughout the week. The
week's advance, which was the sharpest in many
months, placed the general price levels at many
markets the highest since last August with
prices at St. Joseph and Sioux Falls reaching
the highest point since December, 195 Barrows
and gilts closed 504$1.50 higher, mostly








75#-$1.50 up. Prices on sows advanced 250-$1.25,
largely 50041.00.
At the close, U. S. No. 1 and 1-2, 180-240#
barrows and gilts sold at $18.25-19.00, most
sales $18.50-18.75 although few sales reached
$19.25 at Omaha. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and 2-3, 180-
250# bulked at $18.25-18.75, with an extreme
range of $17.50-18.75. U. S. 1-5, 270-600# sows
brought $14.00-16.25, U. S. 1-2, 250-500#
$16.50-17.00 at a few points.
Feeder pigs sold 50-750 higher at Sioux
City and were $1.00 up at St. Paul. Good and
Choice 150-170# feeder pigs at Sioux City brought
$17.00-18.00; Good and Choice 130-160# at St.
Paul brought $17.50-18.25.
HOGS Hog receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled 397,000 for the
week and were 11 percent larger than the previous
week and 4 percent more than a year ago. Prices
advanced on most sessions under the influence of
higher dressed pork prices. Barrows and gilts
closed 900-41.00 higher, instances $1.15 up on
weights over 240#; sows $1.10-1.25 higher. On
Friday, mixed No. 1-5 and No. 2-3 200-240#
barrows and gilts sold from $17.50-18.15 with
No. 1-2 $18.15-18.50. U. S. 1-5 270-400# sows
realized $14.70-16.50, 400-550# $15.25-15.50.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets were 11 percent less than
a week earlier but little changed from last year.
Higher dressed lamb prices was an important
factor stimulating demand and influencing ad-
vances on slaughter lambs. For the week, slaugh-
ter lambs were strong to $1.50 higher,mostly 50#-
$1.00 up. Slaughter ewes were steady to $1.00
higher, instances $1.50 up; feeder lambs were
steady to 0S higher at most points.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading for greasy domestic worsted wools
at the Boston market was rather slow, due
principally to limited offerings and a poor de-
mand. Prices were about steady.
There was a good volume of greasy and
scoured pulled wools sold for woolen purposes
at firm prices. Demand for noils was moderate-
ly good with prices steady. Sales of scoured
shorn wools were limited.
At a sealed bid sale held in Texas ap-
proximately 200,000 pounds of 12 months and
100,000 pounds of 8 months wool were offered
with only a small quantity of average 12 months
wool sold. Little was done in the territory
and fleece States.
Midweek cables from Australia showed all
markets very firm with good competition. The
New Zealand markets were slightly higher under
generally good competition with Poland and
Japan dominating. There was good general
competition in the Cape markets at steady
prices with interest from all sections. The
Buenos Aires market was rather slow at slight-
ly higher prices while Montevideo remained
unchanged.
Fleece Wools Greasy quarter-blood fleede
wools sold for future delivery at 95# clean
basis on a core test. Medium grade fleece
lambs wool sold recently around 85-84# clean
basis delivered.
Territory Wools Trading for territory
wools was practically at a standstill.
Texas Wools Original bag average 12
months wool sold in Texas around $1.15 clean
basis, delivered Boston.
Mohair A good volume of fall kid mohair
sold mostly at $1.411 earlier in the week an4
$1.46i at the last sale. Practically all fall
kid mohair has now been sold. There was a
little domestic worsted and woolen business in
tops and scoured mohair and mohair noils in
the local market.
Foreign Wools Trading for spot foreign
wools was dull. A greasy Montevideo super
skirted 56s sold for shipment around $1.12
clean basis, duty paid. Cabled quotations at
week's end follow with combing wools converted
to clean U. S. oil-combed yields and short
wools to scouring yields, in bond.

Carpet Wools Trade in carpet wools was
moderately active with some of the smaller mills
buying stock for consumption. New Zealand
carpet fleeces sold at 750 and second shear
wools at 740 clean fibers present for shipment
while shippers in Buenos Aires were asking 760
for fleeces and 74# for November second clips.
India/ Pakistan carpet fleeces were quoted at
770 and white bibruk at 77# clean fibers present
for shipment.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CABLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Supplies of fresh meats
at Eastern Seaboard markets were normal with
clearance complete in most instances. Trading
was moderately active for all classes under a
rather good demand. Conditions in New York were
very unsettled as termination of strike announced
very early Monday brought confusion rather than
prompt return to normal operation. Rerouting of
meats met several snags in hauling and handling
which delayed unloading schedules and caused
accumulations after midweek. Also direct buying
by retail outlets was an underlying influence ef-
fecting lack of urgency for meats in local whole-
sale channels. Some beef and lamb was carried
at New York. Pork cuts, veal and calf moved
quite readily while in the beef division rounds
and chucks moved well with outlets for ribs and
loins very narrow. Trading on lamb was uneven.
Steer beef closed steady to $1.00 higher,
except weak to 500 lower at New York. Cow beef
sold steady to $2.00 lower, bulk 500 off; veal
and calf steady to $3.00 higher. Lamb sold
steady to $3.00 lower with New York and Phila-
delphia fully $1.00-3.00 off; pork loins steady
to $3.00 higher, mostly $1.00-3.00 up, other
pork cuts steady to $2.00 higher, except Boston
butts $1.00 lower at Philadelphia.
Prices for kosher steer forequarters, lamb,
veal and calf were unchanged.

CHICAGO Supplies of beef and lamb were
normal with Choice offerings comprising the bulk
of these classes. Veal offerings were small
with Choice and Prime grades particularly
limited. Fresh pork supplies were moderate.
Prices on carcass beef were steady despite a
mostly slow wholesale trade. Beef chucks and
rounds met fair outlets with loins and particu-
larly ribs slow. Veal advanced sharply in a
moderately active trade, with small offerings
providing the bullish influence. Trading for
lamb was moderately active and prices worked
higher ending a two-week period of declines.
Fairly broad outlets for all fresh pork cuts
sent loin prices to their highest level in four
weeks.
Beef prices closed steady; veal $3.00-4.00
higher; lamb $1.00-1.50 higher; pork loins
$3.00-3.50 higher; Boston butts 4-8# $1.50-2.00
higher; spareribs 3# down steady.

PACIFIC COAST Supplies of beef were about
normal, except for Choice 500-650# steer car-
casses moderate. Trading was moderately active
for calf and veal with the supply normal. A
narrow demand and above normal supplies on lamb
prompted slow trading and lower prices. Supplies
of fresh and smoked pork were about normal.


Steer beef sold steady to weak with some
sales at San Francisco 500 off; cow beef steady
to weak in the northwest and steady to 500
higher in California, except Utility and Com-
mercial $1.00 off in San Francisco. Veal sold
steady to $2.00 higher wi~h some sales $4.00 up
in San Francisco; calf steady to $1.00 lower,
the decline at Los Angeles. Lamb sold steady to
$1.00 lower, instances $1.50 off in the north-
west. Fresh pork sold steady to $1.00 higher,
with pork loins and spareribs $1.00-2.00 up in
Los Angeles; smoked pork generally steady to
$1.00 higher, instances $2.00 up, except smoked
hams weak to $1.00 lower.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

MIDWEST CARLOT DRESSED MEAT SUMMARY -
Prices advanced sharply on below normal supplies
of lamb and pork under a good demand. Demand for
beef was moderately good with supplies below
normal. Clearance was generally complete on all
classes. Choice steer beef closed steady, in-
stances 25# lower; Choice heifer beef steady to
500 lower. Good steer and heifer beef, as well
as cow beef sold steady to 50# higher; lamb
$1.00-1.75 higher. Pork loins were $3.00-4.00
higher; fresh hams 12-14# and Boston butte
$2.00-2.50 higher; hams 14-16# steady to 50#
