BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic combing wools
at the Boston market was rather slow with very
limited sales at steady prices.
There was good demand for greasy pulled
wools for combing use and scoured pulled medium
grade wools for woolen consumption at firm
rates. Trading on other woolen type wools was
very slow. The noils market was dull at about
unchanged levels.
There was considerable interest in the con-
tracting of bulk medium grade wools in Colorado
and Idaho, and occasional sales of fall wools
were noted in Texas. Otherwise,activity was
generally slow in the fleece States.
According to cabled reports at midweek,
the Australian markets reopened at Newcastle
with a good selection of spinners wools with
the Continent, Japan and England, the chief
buyers. Quotations were unchanged, except
very fine spinners types were somewhat weaker.
Activity improved at Geelong auctions during
midweek as Japan and the Continent dominated
and prices were stronger. At Auckland, New
Zealand, trading was active with Continental
interests the main buyers of all classes in a
very firm market. The Cape markets were also
firm. There was a stronger trend in Montevideo.
There was very little action at Buenos Aires.
The Crop Reporting Board of the United
States Department of Agriculture announced the
average price received by farmers for wool on
December 15, 1961, was 40.8# per grease pound.
This compared to 40.5# for November 15, 1961
and 39.5# for December 15, 1960.
Fleece Wools Graded 56/588 good French
combing and staple fleece wools brought around
$1.06-1.07, while graded 54s staple wool was
estimated at about $1.04-1.05, clean basis, for
early delivery.
Territory Wools A fair weight of bulk
medium wool was contracted in Idaho and a small
volume in Colorado, around 50-51#, grease
basis, f.o.b. A modest weight of spot original
bag bulk 64s, short French combing wool sold
around $1.05, clean basis.
Texas Wools A car or two of 12 months
wool sold in Texas at an estimated clean price
of $1.27-1.28, delivered East, while a few odd
lots of lambs wool brought around 95# and fall
wools moved in a range from 95-98#, clean
basis, delivered.
Mohair Recent sales of adult mohair in
Texasbro git 71l-72i to the warehouse. There
was a slight improvement in the local market
with some trading for domestic and foreign con-
sumption.
Wool Tops The wool tops market was slow
with occasional sales of small lots of mostly
fine grades. Quotes follow:

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass beef sold
steady to 500 higher; cow beef fully 501 higher
at New York, but 50-750 lower at Philadelphia.
Veal and calf sold $1.00-2.00 higher at New
York, $1.00 lower at Philadelphia, and other
markets held steady. Lamb was strong to $2.00
higher at Baltimore, otherwise the trend was
steady to $1.00 lower. Pork loins were weak to
$4.00 off; spareribs strong to $2.00 higher;
Boston butts and fresh skinned hems steady to
$2.00 lower.
Prices were 50-81'.00 higher for kosher
steer forequarters at New York. Veal and calf
was steady to strong and kosher dressed lamb
fully $1.00 lower.
Supplies were generally normal on the
Eastern Seaboard. Featured beef sales by several
large retail chains at New York influenced an
active trade. Clearance of beef was fairly
complete except small carryover at Washington.
Veal outlet was fairly broad at New York, and
prices moved to highest levels since last April.
Lamb moved well at Washington and Baltimore
but rather slow otherwise, and weakness perme-
ated the price structure outside of these two
areas. Cleanup was generally complete. Pork
loins edged lower at Eastern markets under rela-
tively narrow demand with prices at New York
fully $3.00-4.00 lower. Spareribs met good
demand and sold steady to $2.00 higher while
outlet for other pork cuts was rather poor.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold steady
to mostly 500 lower, veal $1.00 higher, lamb 500-
$1.00 lower, pork loins 8-16 $4.00-4.50 lower,
Boston butts 4-8# $2.50-3.00 lower, spareribs
3# and down steady to 50, higher.
Veal supply remained small. Supplies of
beef were moderate, lamb and fresh pork moderate
early but normal by midweek. Beef in the main
was average-Good to average-Choice while most
lamb weighed over 50#.
Demand was rather limited for carcass beef.
There was ready outlet for arm and squarecut
beef chucks and particularly rounds which sold
higher. Activity slowed on chucks late and
some declines occurred. Ribs and loins were
slow, although some quarters had a fair movement
on ribs. Limited supplies of veal found good
demand at strong prices. Carcass lamb trade
ruled moderately active. Hotel ribs were very
slow with some movement into cold storage while
on the other hand, hindquarter meat along with
stews and shoulders were in moderate demand.


Trading was fairly active for spareribs but
pork loins and Boston butts were slow and
lower on each session.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold moderately active early, but late
trade was slow. Prices were steady to weak
in Southern California, steady to 500 lower
elsewhere. Cow and bull beef was slow, mostly
500 lower in Los Angeles, fairly active, about
steady in San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.
Carcass lamb was moderately active under good
demand, steady to $1.00 higher with the most
advance in Northern California. Calf was
fairly active, steady to strong. Pork cuts
were slow in California but moderately active
in the Pacific Northwest; loins, skinned hams
and Boston butts were weak to $3.00 lower,
spareribs steady to $3.00 higher, smoked hams
steady to $1.00 lower and sliced bacon strong
to $2.00 higher. The supply of beef was
about normal except Standard steer occasionally
short in California; moderate offerings all
other classes.

CABLOT MEAT TRABE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAEA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Limited demand for steer
beef coupled with fairly liberal supplies
slowed trading and rather sharp declines
were recorded. Heifer beef showed less
decline than on steer but even so, outlet
was only fair. Cow beef sold in a moder-
ately active trade.
Steer beef was 250-$1.00 lower, mostly
50#-$1.00 lower with Good grade showing the
most decline. Heifer beef sold steady to 500
lower. Cow beef was steady to 500 lower
except at Denver where prices were mostly
$1.50 lower, instances $2.00 off. Clearance
on steer beef was incomplete at some shipping
points.
Demand was moderate for carcass lamb and
expanded supplies sold in an uneven trade
with prices steady to $1.00 lower, most de-
cline on weights over 45#. Clearance was
generally complete.
Trading was only moderately active on
liberal supplies of pork products. Pork
loins were $2.50-4.00 lower. Prices on pork
butts ranged from $1.00-3.00 lower and fresh
hams were 500-$1.50 lower. Pork carcasses
were steady to 25# higher at New York but
$1.00-1.25 lower at Philadelphia. Clearance
was generally complete.

CATTLE AND CALVES ON FEED JANUARY 1, 1962


On January 1, 1962, there were 7,833,000 head of cattle and calves on feed for slaughter
market in the 26 major feeding States, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This was 2 per-
cent above the 7,645,000 head on feed in these States the same date a year earlier. There were
5,597,000 head on feed October 1, 1961 -- 9 percent above October 1, 1960. The seasonal increase
in numbers on feed from October 1 to January 1 was 40 percent compared with a 49 percent increase
a year earlier.
In 37 States (26 States plus 11 Southeastern), for which comparable January 1 data are
available, a total of 8,251,000 head of cattle and calves was on feed January 1 this year com-
pared with 8,007,000 head January 1, 1961. In addition, there were 36,000 head of cattle and
calves on feed in Maryland and New York January 1, 1962 -- the first time number on feed data
have been available in these States.
Cattle and calves on feed in the North Central States January 1, this year totaled 5,254,000
head -- 1 percent above the 5,200,000 head on feed January 1 last year. Increases were shown
for Nebraska, South Dakota, Kansas, Indiana, and Michigan. Declines occurred in Iowa, Minnesota,
Missouri, Ohio, and North Dakota. Illinois and Wisconsin numbers were unchanged from January 1
last year.
A total of 2,081,000 head of cattle and calves were on feed January 1, 1962, in 11 Western
States -- 3 percent more than a year earlier. Six States were up and five were down compared
with January 1 last year. California, the leading Western State, had 8 percent more cattle on
feed, but in Colorado, the second ranking State in this region, numbers were down 4 percent
from last January.
Cattle and calves placed on feed in the 26 States during the October-December quarter
totaled 5,663,000 head, compared with 5,643,000 head in the same period in 1960. Shipments of
stocker and feeder cattle into 8 Corn Belt States (for which data are available) during October
and November this year were up 4 percent from the same two months in 1960 -- 1 percent less in
October but 11 percent more in November.
Marketing of fed cattle from October through December in the 26 States totaled 3,427,000
head, up 10 percent from the same period in 1960. The North Central States, with a 13 percent
gain in marketing accounted for most of this increase, as marketing for the Western States
were up only 1 percent.
The number of beef steers and heifers (grading Prime, Choice, and Good) sold out of first
hands for slaughter at 12 major livestock markets during October, November, and December was 5
percent higher than the same quarter in 1960. These data do not include direct sales to packing
plants, mixed lots of steers and heifers, and some deliveries bought on prior contracts.
A breakdown of the January 1 number on feed in the 26 States by weight groups shows a
relatively large number under 500 pounds compared with a year earlier -- a total of 1,536,000
head, or an increase of 17 percent. Cattle in the 500-699 pound group numbered 1,887,000 head,
the same as a year earlier; however, the 700-899 pound group at 2,306,000 head was down 5 percent.
The 900-1,099 group amounted to 1,678,000 head up 7 percent; but the number weighing over
1,100 pounds at 426,000 head was down 4 percent.
In the 26 States, the number of steers and steer calves, at 5,524,000 head, compares with
5,348,000 head one year earlier -- up 3 percent. Heifers and heifer calves totaled 2,211,000,
down slightly from the 2,215,000 head on feed a year earlier. Cows and others totaled 98,000
head compared with 82,000 head January 1, 1961.
In the 26 States the number on feed under 3 months, at 5,500,000 head, was up slightly from
5,486,000 head a year earlier. The 3 to 6 months group, at 1,852,000 head, was up 2 percent
from the 1,809,000 head last year, and the over 6 months group, at 481,000 head, was 37 percent
above the 350,000 head on January 1, 1961.
Reports from cattle feeders in the 26 States indicate they intend to market 42 percent of
the January 1 inventory, or 3,327,000 head, during January, February, and March. If intentions
are carried out, the marketing would be 3 percent above the 3,227,000 head marketed in the
first quarter of 1961 from the January 1, 1961 number on feed. A breakdown by months of antici-
pated marketing of the January 1 inventory during the first quarter of 1962 shows 34 percent
to be marketed in January, 33 percent in February, and 33 percent in March. Expected marketing,
as published, are based upon the usual relationship between survey data and actual marketing.
