FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets


HOGS Terminal markets Major price ad-
vances were recorded on barrows and gilts the
first three days of the week when extreme winter
weather held a tight rein on the supply of hogs.
As the weather moderated Thursday and Friday,
marketing of barrows and gilts were sharply
expanded and a large share of the early price
upturn was erased. Barrows and gilts closed
steady to 500 higher, except steady to 25#
lower at Chicago. Sow prices held early ad-
vances to close mostly 25-75# higher. Sow
supplies at the 8 markets at 7 percent were 5
percent less than the preceding week. The aver-
age weight of barrows and gilts at the 8
markets at 234# compared with 236# the previous

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Completed sales of greasy domestic worsted
wools were insignificant in the Boston market
at steady prices. Supplies were very scarce.
Trade in woolen wools and noils was slow
with prices on woolen wools advancing about 50.
Greasy pulled wools were in demand for combing
use while scoured pulled wools were moved for
woolen mill consumption. Sales of noils for
import from Bradford were extremely limited
in the local market although choice lister
noils were in demand.
Movement in the domestic primary markets
was very small. Occasional lots of fall wools
moved in Texas.
Cabled reports from the opening sale at
East London, South Africa January 8 showed a
poor selection of offerings with the market
very firm. Auctions resumed at Wanganui, New
Zealand on January 10 with the Continent domi-
nating and Bradford abstaining. Medium wools
were irregular with coarse wools very firm.
A fair volume of greasy 60s to 64s Australian
wools were sold at private treaty for shipment.
Fleece Wools Trade in fleece wools con-
tinued dormant.
Territory Wools Activity in territory
wools was stagnant.
Texas Wools A few cars of fall wool sold
in Texas at an estimated clean cost ranging
from 950-1.00 delivered East.
Mohair Occasional lots of adult mohair
broughtr75 to the warehouse while the local
market remained dormant.
Wool Tops Dry-combed fleece.54s tops
sold at 41.45 while dry-combed territory 54s
brought around $1.48. Warp Australian dry-
combed 64s brought around $1.78. Quotes

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN "nFLT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Choice and Prime steer
beef was steady to 250 higher at New York while
Good grade beef sold steady to 504 lower. Steer
beef at Philadelphia was weak to 50U lower while
other Eastern Seaboard markets were steady, in-
stances strong at Baltimore. Cow beef held mostly
steady, except at Philadelphia where prices ad-
vanced 50e-$1.00. Veal and calf sold strong to
$5.00 higher with the least upturn at New York
and Washington. Lamb prices were mostly steady.
Pork loins advanced $2.00-5.00, some closing
sales up $6.00. Other pork cuts were steady to
$5.00 higher at all markets except fresh skinned
hams $1.00-3.00 lower at Washington.
Kosher dressed steer forequarters sold
steady, but veal, calf and lamb kosher fronts
were $1.00 higher.
Supplies were mostly normal. Receipts of
veal showed a small overall increase while beef
and lamb unloads were a trifle curtailed at New
York. Clearance was mostly complete at Eastern
markets as buyers were active at the close. De-
mand for beef was good with demand on rounds and
chucks the broadest. Rounds and chucks sold
higher in contrast to weak to lower trend on ribs
and loins. Carcass price levels were fairly well
maintained. Veal and calf outlet was only fair,
but a rather limited supply was a supporting
price factor. Bulk of the volume consisted of
Good grade and below. Lamb was moderately active
under mostly fair demand. The trade on pork
was very active at all markets as most cuts were
featured at retail for week-end sales.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold steady
to $1.00 higher, veal $2.00-3.00 higher, lamb
fully steady, pork loins 8-16# $3.00-3.50 higher,
Boston butte 4-8# $1.00-1.50 higher, spareribs
3# and down $2.00-2.50 higher.
Offerings were moderate in the beef, lamb
and fresh pork divisions. Good and Choice com-
prised the bulk of beef supply. Lamb carcasses
averaging 55-65# were most plentiful. Early
there were more veal available than normal, how-
ever, supplies shortened considerably and numbers
were limited from midweek on.
Demand was rather narrow for carcass beef in
local wholesale houses. For the second straight
week, ribs and loins were slow with price trends
weak. Arm and squarecut chucks and rounds found
ready outlets, with fractional gains on chucks.
Veal trade was only moderately active but reduced
supplies and higher costs advanced prices rather
sharply. With the exception of one week when
prices were steady, veal has worked higher since
the last week in November 1961 and current levels
are the highest since last spring. Carcass lamb
and all cuts generally sold in a moderately ac-
tive trade. All listed pork cuts were in good
demand.


PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold about steady in Southern California
and the Pacific Northwest but strong to mostly
504 higher in San Francisco. Cow beef was
steady to $1.00 lower, least decline in North-
ern California; bull beef mostly steady. Calf
prices held about steady in all areas. Lamb
was 500-$1.00 higher in Los Angeles and steady
elsewhere except occasionally 501 lower in
Portland. Fresh pork loins sold $6.00-7.00
higher in San Francisco, other fresh items
steady to $3.00 higher in all areas. Sliced
bacon and smoked picnics were steady to $2.00
higher, other cured pork items were steady to
$2.00 lower, most decline on hamse. Carcass
steer and heifer trade was active early but
closed slow as demand narrowed. Supplies were
near normal. Cow beef was slow and supplies
accumulated. A moderate to short supply of
lamb experienced broad demand. Fresh pork
trading was fairly active, decreasing supply
in California due to storm conditions in the
Mid-West; cured pork was moderately active,
best outlet was for sliced bacon and smoked
picnics.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Trading was very slow and de-
mand poor for steer and heifer beef at eastern
wholesale centers early in the week. Supplies
were sharply curtailed by midweek at major
processing centers resulting in considerably
improved demand and trading turned moderately
active. Cow beef sold in a moderately active
trade all week.
The week's trend on Choice steer beef was
mostly steady to 500 higher. Good steer was
very uneven and sold steady to 50# lower in
the east while prices were steady to $1.00
higher at Chicago and other western shipping
points. Heifer beef prices advanced 500-$1.50,
mostly 504-$1.00. Cow beef was steady to 50#
lower except at Philadelphia where prices were
$1.50-2.00 lower. Clearance was complete on
all classes.
Carcass lamb sold in a very uneven trade
again this week. Demand was good for 35-45#
carcasses but only fair for heavier weights.
Carcasses weighing 35-55# sold steady to $1.00
higher at Chicago and New York, otherwise
trends were steady to $1.00 lower. Supplies
were below normal and clearance was generally
complete.
Trading was active on below normal pork
supplies and pork loins sold $2.00-3.00 higher,
pork butts $1.00 higher at Chicago and $3.00-
$3.50 higher at Omaha. Fresh hams sold steady
to $1.00 higher. Pork carcasses were unchanged
at New York and $1.00-1.50 higher at Phila-
delphia. Clearance was complete on all classes.

Red meats totaled 488 million pounds on January 1, up 2 million from a month
earlier. These stocks were 15 percent above those of January 1, 1961 but were
virtually the same as the 5-year average. The net gain of 2 million pounds com-
pares with an increase of 15 million during December 1960 and the average increase
of 48 million pounds. Beef stocks at 199 million pounds, were 17 percent above
January 1, 1961 and 8 percent above the 5-year average. A 5 million pound net re-
duction in beef during December compares with a 1 million pound increase a year ago
and the December 1956-60 average gain of 17 million pounds. Holdings of pork
totaled 206 million pounds on January 1, a net increase of 15 million pounds during
December 1961, compared with 17 million pounds a year earlier and the average in-
crease of 28 million pounds. Total frozen pork increased 15 million pounds to 168
million pounds but total cooler pork declined 2 million pounds to 58 million pounds
