MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers and heifers sold steady
to 750 lower under the influence of downturns
in the carlot beef trade and uneven distri-
bution of receipts. Slaughter cows were firm.
to $1.00 higher. Feeder cattle and calves sold
in an active trade, firm at most midwest
markets, steady to 50# higher at Kansas City
and mostly 500-$1.00 higher in the Southwest.
Barrows and gilts sold steady to 50# higher
over most of the Corn Belt with sows irregular
but mostly steady. Spring slaughter lambs ad-
vanced $1.00-2.00 with old-crop offerings 5C0-
$1.00 up.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Supplies at
the 12 markets were up 8 percent from the
preceding holiday week. The number of slaugh-
ter steers and heifers sold out of first hands
at the 7 markets totaled 111,772 compared with
106,511 the previous week and 118,771 a year
ago. Uneven distribution of supplies and
lower wholesale prices for dressed beef grad-
ing Good and better were weakening influences
in the market for slaughter steers and heifers.
Both classes ended the period steady to 75#
lower with the exception of one or two Missouri
River markets where closing prices were steady
to 250 higher. Cows were generally strong to
$1.00 higher, reaching a new high for the
year in Chicago at the same time that slaugh-
ter steers and heifers fell back to levels
equal to the 1962 low of two weeks ago. Bulls
steady to 500 higher at most markets, vealers
steady to strong at National Stockyards but
steady to $2.00 lower in St. Paul. Additional
rain in a large area of the western cattle
country further improved range and pasture
grasses, and retarded shipments of cows and
feeders. Slaughter steers and heifers predomi-
nated at most points, largely Good and Choice
grades and with steers over 1350# very scarce,
the average weight of slaughter steers at the
7 markets 1120# compared with 1150# a year ago.
Slaughter steers: At markets outside Chi-
cago, a few loads of mixed Choice and Prime
steers $26.00-26.50, bulk Choice $24.00-25.50,
Good steers largely $22.00-24.00. Fully 70
percent of the steers in Chicago Choice but
only 4 percent Prime, the smallest percentage
of Prime steers in two years. Six loads Prime
1225-1325# $27.75-28.25, bulk high-Choice and
mixed Choice and Prime 1100-1350# $26.00-27.50,
most Choice $24.50-26.25, Good $22.50-24.50.
Slaughter heifers: A few loads high-Choice
and mixed Choice and Prime heifers $25.50-25.753
bulk Choice $23.50-25.25, Good largely $21.50-
24.00.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
$14.25-18.00, bulk $15.00-17.50. Canner and
Cutter largely $12.00-15.50.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Limited receipts


of feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
were very little different in volume than the
previous week when a midweek holiday tended to
restrict marketing. At several markets the
seasonally small movement failed to provide
sufficient numbers for an adequate test of
price levels and at all terminals supplies were
relatively small. A fairly good early June de-
mand existed for most all feeder classes and in
brisk trading prices were generally firm in the
midwest, steady to 500 higher at Kansas City
and mostly 50f-$1.00 higher in the Southwest.
Although the season is now far enough along to
have dispelled much of the urgency in demand
for large numbers to place on grass, recent
generous wide-spread rains greatly improved
grazing conditions in some areas which pre-
viously had been hurt by much dryer than normal
early spring weather and this development was
a factor in stimulating demand.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
bulked at $22.00-24.50, few Choice around 80Q0
$24.75-25.50. At Sioux City few loads Choice
1059-1073# were included at $23.00-24.50 and at
Denver Choice 110t8 $24.00. However, not many
steers weighing over 1000# moved into feeder
channels. Good and Choice 550-750# sold chief-
ly from $25.00-27.50, few loads Choice 541-598#
$28.00-29.50, one load 638# included at $28.00.
Medium and mixed Medium and Good 550-75Q0
ranged $18.00-24.00.
Feeder heifers: Few loads Choice 510-575#
$25.00-27.00 and one load Choice 700# $25.50.
Other Good and Choice 525-700# in limited vol-
ume sold from $21.50-24.50.
Feeder calves: Choice 350-525# steers
$27.00-31.00, load Choice and Fancy 413#
$31.50, part loads 566 and 584# $52.00. Good
and mixed Good and Choice steer calves ranged
$24.00-29.00. Good and Choice 350-500# heifers
$22.00-27.50, Choice 442# included at $27.00.
Shipment mixed Good and Choice 331# brought
$27.50; small lot Choice and Fancy 557#
$28.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets The week's
twelve market hog receipts at 550,000 were
almost one-fourth larger than the previous
Memorial Day week. The main portion of this
increase arrived Monday and Tuesday when many
major terminals received the largest volume
since the first of the year. Early declines
were recovered later in the week when receipts
were moderate and barrows and gilts closed
steady to 500 higher. Sows continued their
seasonal increased market movement, and were

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

LASTERI SEABOARD Prices for steer beef
were steady to $1.00 higher at all markets, ex-
cept Baltimore where the trend was steady, cow
beef steady to $2.00 higher with most upturn at
Philadelphia; veal and calf strong to .1.00
higher at Phil lelphia, steady to weak at Balti-
more, otherwise steady; lamb strorLa to $4.00
higher with New York closing mostly $4.00 up,
while a small volume old crop was $3.00-4.00
higher at Washington and New York. Pork loins
were $1.00-2.00 higher and other pork cuts
steady to $3.00 higher, except fresh skinned
hams $1.00 lower at Washington.
Prices were strong to 500 higher for kosher
steer forequarters. Lamb prices advanced $2.00-
6.00. Bulk veal and calf kosher dressed fore-
saddles closed $1.00 lower.
Receipts at various Eastern Seaboard markets
were normal aside from very light in-shipment of
lamb at New York which generally ran short of
prevailing outlet. Weekly clearance was mostly
complete in all areas. Trading for beef was
fairly active with demand fair at the outset
and turning broad at midweek into the close.
Hindquarters moved best, particularly; at Phila-
delphia and New York. Veal and calf turnover
was mostly fair and distribution good in view
of placement in virtually all retail channels.
Lamb supplies were mainly spring lamb that moved
quite readily under relatively broad demand at
the several markets. At the same time small
showing of old crop met good demand and cleared
promptly at higher prices. Pork trading was
moderately active as most primal cuts were co-
featured with other fresh meats, and the majority
of large retail outlets active through the week.
Loins, butts and spareribs were forerunners.

CHICAGO Good and Choice steer beef 500
lower, Standard s'eal~, heifer beef 500 lower,
veal steady, spring lamb $2.00 higher, pork loins
8-1` $2.00-2.50 higher, Boston butts 4-s; 500
higher, spareribs 3- down $1.00-1.50 higher.
Steer and heifer beef and fresh pork in
about normal supply, veal and spring lamb moder-
ate. Old crop lamb offerings rather small.
Beef supply largely Good to average-Choice, most
spring lamb in the 5-55. weight range.
Rather a slow carcass beef trade throughout
the period. Outlets were broad for rounds but
rather narrow for ribs which worked to lower
levels. Movement of loins slowed compared to
brisk trade of the past several weeks. Arm and
squarecut chucks generally moderately active,
best early. However, chucks worked lower as
volume of advance sales was well below normal.
Veal trade ruled moderately active. Demand was
fair for sprinE lamb, most cuts clearing on an
even basis. Lamb legs still slow but cooler
weather in this area aiding movement to a slight


degree. All fresh pork cuts sold in a fairly
active trade, loins advancing for the second
straight week.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold at mostly steady prices other than
in Los Angeles where Choice under 70G~ steer
developed a steady to 500 lower trend and 800-
900- firm to instances 500 higher. Cow beef
sold firm to 50 higher in Southern California,
steady to $1.00 lower elsewhere but mostly
steady in San Francisco. Calf advanced $1.00-
2.00 in Los Angeles, both calf and veal steady
in San Francisco but veal $2.00-4.00 lower in
Portland and Seattle. Spring lamb sold steady
to $1.00 higher in California but irregularly
500-$2.50 lower in the northwest. Fresh pork
was steady to $2.00 higher other than spare-
ribs $2.00-3.00 lower in Los Angeles. Cured
pork items sold steady to firm except in San
Francisco where smoked hams were $1.00 lower
and sliced bacon $1.00 higher. Moderate
supplies of most meats were generally ample
for outlet although cow beef, veal and spring
lamb were in slightly excessive offering in
the Portland-Seattle area. Trading was fairly
active for the most part.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHI7AY-O, DEER, OMAHA, NE1 YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Demand was fair for near normal
supplies of steer and heifer beef at eastern
wholesale centers the fore part of the week,
but was rather narrow at midwestern markets
and prices declined. Later in the week, how-
ever, trading turned moderately active as
demand broadened and steer beef regained some
of the early loss. Steer beef was 25E-$1.50
lower, mostly 50--;l.00 off. Heifer beef
closed steady to 500 lower with Choice at
Philadelphia $1.25-1.50 off. Cow beef con-
tinued to sell under good demand and prices
were steady to $1.00 higher, mainly 500-$1.00
up. Clearance was generally complete on all
classes.
Lamb supplies continued at below normal
levels this week with not enough old crop
carcass lamb sold in carlots to establish
a price trend. The available supply of spring
carcass lamb sold $2.00-4.00 higher. Demand
was fairly good and clearance was complete.
Trading was fairly active under good de-
mand for normal supplies of pork and most pork
products showed higher trends for the week.
Pork loins were $1.50-2.50 higher and fresh
hams were 50 -$2.50 up. Pork butts sold at
generally steady levels. Pork carcasses
closed steady to strong at New York and
advanced $1.00-1.50 at Philadelphia. Clearance
was complete on all pork products.
