MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW
and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Salable cattle receipts of 198,000 at the
twelve markets, while identical with a year ago,
were down fully 5 percent from the preceding
week and stood the smallest for a non-holiday
week since last July. Largely owing to reduced
receipts and a more uniform distribution of sup-
plies, slaughter steers and heifers strong to
$1.00 higher, mostly strong to 500 higher,
which meant that the previous weeks declines
were largely erased. Slaughter cows also ad-
vanced 25-50f, and bulls sold steady to $1.00
higher. Higher slaughter cattle prices coupled
with milder winter weather was reflected in a
steady to 50# higher trade on feeder cattle.
Barrows and gilts ended the period steady to 25#
higher, mostly steady at mid-west terminals, on
curtailed receipts. At the same time, sows
were steady to 50# higher. Slaughter lambs re-
gained the price ground lost the previous week
in steady to 50# higher trading.

SLAU&HTM CATTLE AND CALVES Following the
previous week's sharply lower prices, cattle sup-
plies at terminal markets were somewhat curtailed.
In fact, receipts at twelve markets stood the
smallest for any non-holiday week since July,
1961. Small receipts evenly distributed through-
out the week, and a higher dressed beef trade
supported higher cattle price trends at all
points. Slaughter steers and heifers generally
strong to 50# higher and several markets, in-
cluding Chicago, 250-,1.00 higher. The percent-
age of cows in receipts was smaller than recently
and this class 25-50# higher. Bulls steady to
$1.00 higher. Dealers $1.00-3.00 higher at St.
Paul and instances $1.00 higher at St. Louis.
Slaughter steem mostly Good to average-Choice
except in Chicago; however, the barely 10 per-
cent Prime steers in Chicago only half as large
as a year ago. Average weight of all slaughter
steers sold out of first hands at seven markets
5# heavier than the previous week, but at 1128e
was still 21# less than a year ago.
Slaughter steers: Load Prime 1212# in
Chicago at $28.60, was the highest in four weeks
and at this center high-Choice and Prime 1125-
1400# $27.50-e8.). Bulk Choice at most terminals
$24.75-26,25, mainly $8.00-27.25 at Chicago.
Good grades largely $22.00-25.00, Standard $19.00-
22.00.
Slaughter heifers: High-Choice and Prime
sold $26.50-27.00, most Choice $24.75-46.25 and
Good $21.50-24.75.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Comnercial
largely $14.00-16.00, Canner and Cutter $11.50-
14.75.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Trading was
fairly active at mid-west terminal markets for
seasonally light to moderate supplies of feeder
cattle and calves. Relatively mild winter wea-
ther the past two weeks did much to ease diffi-


culties which cattle feeders had faced as a re-
sult of the severe January storms. This was re-
flected in a currently expanded demand with feeder
buyers additionally encouraged by an advance in
slaughter cattle prices that erased a substantial
part of the declines such offerings suffered
during the latter part of January. Prices at
mid-west centers for the most part were steady
to strong, instances 500 higher. At some south-
western terminals late week auction sales showed
a sharply higher trend. At a Fort Worth auction
Good and Choice 500-6004 steers sold $1.00-1.75
higher, over 600# $1.00 higher. At an Oklahoma
City auction sales were strong to 50# higher,
spots $1.00 up.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
brought $21.00-24.25, few 800# $24.50. Not
many Good 800-900/ sold below $21.50. Medium

HOGS Terminal markets Hog supplies were
slightly reduced compared with the previous week
and barrows and gilts sold steady to 25# higher,
mostly steady at mid-west terminals. Sows were
in seasonally small supply with further reduc-
tions in the offering of this class at most
terminals. Demand proved broad with prices
steady to 50# higher, the full advance on sows
above 4004. The consist of receipts varied
throughout the area. There was an increased
showing of barrows and gilts above 270# at a
few of the western Cornbelt markets. However,
average weights showed a small decrease at some
markets and the average weight of barrows and
gilts at the 8 markets at 2355 was unchanged
compared with a week or year ago. The percen-
tage of sows was estimated at 7 percent.
Barrows and gilts: No. 1-2, 190-240#
closed at $17.50-18.00, No. 1-3, 190-250#
$16.75-17.50, reaching $17.75 at Chicago and
Sioux Falls.
Sows: No. 1-3, 3500-400# $14.50-15.50,
No. 2-3, 400-500# $14.00-15.00.
Feeder pigs at Sioux City were too scarce









to adequately test prices. At South St. Paul
a very moderate volume of Choice 120-1504 were
steady at $15.50-16.00, mainly $15.50.
Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area receipts totaled 3532,000 head, compared
with 554,000 last week and 332,000 during the
comparable week last year. Price changes were
slight on most sessions but late barrow and gilt
sales were weak to 25# lower than the previous
Friday; sows mostly 25# lower.
Barrows and gLlts: Most U. S. 1-3, 200-240#

15.00, No. 2-3, 400-5504 $12.10-13.75.
Hogs Interior Illinois Receipts totaled
105,000, or little changed from a week earlier.
Demand was fairly good. Prices on barrows and
gilts fluctuated from day to day, but closed
fully steady for the week, instances 25# higher.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS SHAN CAMLOT MEAT TRADB REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef prices
were steady except weak to 750 lower at
Philadelphia; cow beef mostly steady but
sales were weak to 25$ lower at Philadelphia;
veal and calf mostly steady, except $1.00-
2.00 lower at Philadelphia and Good veal
steady to $2.00 lower at Washington. Lamb
sold on a steady to $1.00 higher basis at
New York and Philadelphia, and prices steady
in other areas; pork loins advanced $1.00-
3.00 aside from steady trend at Baltimore;
other pork cuts sold steady except at New
York where fresh skinned hams were weak to
$2.00 lower and Boston butts steady to $1.00
lower.
Prices were mainly steady to $1.00
lower for kosher dressed steer forequarters;
lamb sold $1.00-3.00 higher. Quotations
were unchanged for kosher veal and calf.
Receipts were normal for all fresh meat
classes. Bulk of the steer beef supply
graded Good to mostly Choice with Prime
limited. Lamb weighing 50-60# predominated
as did Standard and Good grade veal. Pork
loins weighing 8-12f were most numerous.
Clearance was generally complete at most
markets. Trading opened slow under rela-
tively narrow demand, but by midweek trading
was fairly active in all divisions. Lamb
trading turned active toward the close.
Pork cuts met fairly broad demand as
features by some major retail outlets an
underlying factor.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold
500-$1.00 higher, except Standard steady;
veal mostly $1.00 lower; lamb steady to 500
lower; pork loins 8-12# 500 higher, 12-16#
$1.00 lower, Boston butts 4-8# and spare-
ribs 3# down steady.
Slight increase in the veal supply but
total volume continued small. Steer and
heifer beef, lamb aid fresh pork in normal
volume. Good to low-Choice predominated in
the beef division, weights 55-65# comprised
the bulk of lamb. More pork loins weighing
12-16# available than 8-12#.
Carcass beef trading was slow on open-
ing sessions and only moderately active
thereafter. Demand was good for arm and
squarecut chucks, loins and equivalent
fabricated cuts, loins selling fully steady
and chucks advancing $2.00-2.50. Ribs and
particularly rounds were slow. The veal
trade was generally slow and prices followed
a lower trend for the first time since late
November 1961. Moderate demand prevailed
for carcass lamb and hindsaddles. Fore-


quarter lamb cute were draggy. Pork loins
and butte moved fairly well at the outset
but trading slowed toward the close. Spare-
ribs 3# down were slow throughout.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold steady to 50 lower in California
and was 500 to $1.00 off in the Portland-'
Seattle area. Cow beef was mostly steady in
Los Angeles and San Francisco but steady to
$1.00 lower in the Pacific Northwest; bull
beef was about steady. Calf sold $1.00-2.00
higher in Portland and Seattle, but steady to
$1.00 lower in California with the most de-
cline in Los Angeles. Lamb sold 500-$1.75
lower, least decline was in San Francisco.
Fresh pork cuts were steady to $2.00 lower at
most points but loins were $2.00-3.00 higher
in southern California and spareribs firm to
$2.00 higher in Portland and Seattle. Cured
pork was steady to weak with 12-16# hams
mostly $1.00-2.00 lower.
Moderate supplies of steer and heifer
sold in a slow trade. Cow beef was moder-
ately active late and supplies normal.
Liberal volume of lamb met a narrow demand.
Above normal supplies of fresh and cured pork
met poor demand.


CARLOT MEAT TRASH REVIEW

CHICAGO, 3BENVER, OKAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Although trading on carcass
beef was slow early, by midweek demand broad-
ened influencing a moderately active trade
and prices advanced. Steer and heifer beef
sold steady to $1.00 higher, mostly 500-$1.00
higher. The greatest upturn was recorded on
Choice and the small volume of Prime car-
casses. Cow beef sold steady to 750 higher.
Supplies were normal. Clearance was gener-
ally complete at shipping centers.
Normal supplies of carcass lamb again
met poor demand and price trends were uneven
in a slow trade. Sales were steady to 50#
lower, although in Chicago the trend was
steady to 500 higher. Clearance was largely
complete.
Normal supplies of pork products sold
in a moderately active trade with 8-132 pork
loins steady at Chicago but $1.50 higher at
Omaha, 12-16# loins sold $1.50-2.00 lower
at Chicago. Pork butts and fresh hams-sold
steady to 500 lower. Pork carcasses were
around 250 higher at New York but steady to
500 lower at Philadelphia. Clearance was
