MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price trends on slaughter steers and heif-
ers at midwest markets were generally steady to
50f lower; oows about steady, although very
uneven. Stocker and feeder cattle and calves
were steady to 500 higher. Barrows, gilts and
sows closed steady to 500 lower. Slaughter
lambs were steady to $1.00 lower, ewes steady,
feeder lambs steady to 500 lower with sales 500-
$1.00 off at Fort Worth. Fairly liberal market-
ings and lower dressed meat prices were the main
factors influencing price downturns on most
slaughter classes in the live trade.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steer and heifer prices were steady to 50f lower,
instances 750 off at midwest markets. The down-
turn was influenced by increased receipts and a
substantially lower trend on carcass beef. Sala-
ble cattle receipts at the 12 terminals totaled
207,000, fully 11 percent more than in the
previous week and the largest since early
February. At most points, steers and heifers
grading Standard to low-Choice showed the great-
est price decline. Cow prices were uneven with
the majority steady but sales at Kansas City and
Chicago were steady to 750 higher while the
trend at both St. Joseph and Omaha was steady to
500 lower. Bulls sold mostly steady and vealers
were steady to $1.00 higher in St. Paul and
steady at St. Louis National Stockyards. Bulk
of the receipts at most terminals were slaughter
steers and heifers with the Good and Choice
grades predominating. Loadlots of slaughter
steers grading high-Choice to Prime were avail-
able in relatively small numbers at most points
with Good and low-Choice making up a large per-
centage of the total. The percentage Prime
in the slaughter steer supply at Chicago remained
at around 14 percent.
Three loads of Prime 1165-1325# slaughter
steers brought $28.35-28.50 at Chicago where
bulk of the Choice and Prime 900-1400# sold at
$25.00-28.25 with many loads Prime and mixed
Choice and Prime these weights at $27.00-28.25.
At other points, a few loads of mixed Choice and
Prime steers 1100-1350# brought $26.00-27.00 and
bulk of the high-Good and Choice 10il,,-13'r' sold
from $23.75-26.50. Loadlots Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime li 5-1W'. steers sold from
$22.00-27.00 with Prime 1400# to $28.25 in
Chicago where a load of mixed Choice and Prime
lF,'w"i steers cashed at $22.00. Good steers over
the area bulked at $22.00-24.50. Mixed Choice
and Prime heifers brought $26.00-26.25 while
Choice sold at $23.75-25.75 and Good $21.00-
23.50; Utility and Commercial cows $14.75-16.75;
Canner and Cutter $13.00-15.75.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Stocker and feeder cattle and calves were in good
demand at midwest terminals and moved dependably
at steady to 50* higher prices. The approach of


a new growing season was reflected in an in-
tensified demand for cattle to utilize pasture
and range feeds during the coming spring and
summer months. Most upturn and by far the most
aggressive demand centered on Good and Choice
stocker fleshed yearlings and calves. Buyers
were inclined to proceed somewhat more cautiously
on feeder fleshed cattle, particularly on steers
over 80Q" and heifers over 600#. This was due
at least in part to recent downturns in slaughter
cattle prices. Even so, such kinds generally
were steady and in a few instances mildly strong-
er, and a moderate number of partly fattened 900-
1050# steers went back to the country for further
feeding.
Scattered shipments Choice stock steers,
mostly 525-600# short yearlings, brought $28.00-
32.00. Other Good and Choice 525-750# stock
steers sold chiefly from $24.00-27.50; Medium
and low-Good $20.00-24.00. Good and Choice 800-
1050# feeder steers bulked at $22.00-25.00, few
around 800# $25.25-25.50 and several shipments
partly fattened 900-950# were included at $24.50-
25.00. Medium and low-Good feeders sold from
$19.50-22.75; load Common and Medium 1000#
Holsteins $19.00. Good and Choice yearling heif-
ers brought $21.50-25.00, 2 loads Choice and
Fancy 511-536#? $27.75-28.75. Several loads
Choice and Fancy 429-511# steer calves sold from
$32.00-33.00 and part load Choice 296# reachbA
$36.00. However, majority Good and Choice steer
calves cashed from $25.50-31.00, same grades of
heifer calves largely $22.00-28.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at the
12 terminals numbered around 305,000 head, or an
increase of about 13,000 over the previous week.
Supplies also were a little larger than the
corresponding week of a year ago for the first
time since December despite the marketward move-
ment at the outset of the week being hampered
considerably at Indianapolis by heavy snow. The
butcher supply included a broad representation
of all weights, but bulk of receipts consisted
of mixed No. 1,2 and 3 190-260# consignments.
Sows made up 6 10 percent at the various mar-
kets. The moderate increase in receipts and a
lower trend on most wholesale pork cuts influ-
enced a bearish live trade. Compared with the
previous week's close, barrows and gilts declined
generally 25-500, but finished steady to 250
lower at a few points. Sows ranged steady to
75* lower, mostly steady to 50* off.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1-2, 180-24Cr barrows
and gilts sold at $18.00-18.75, most sales
$18.25-18.50. Consignments of mixed U. S. 1-3,
180-260# offerings comprised the bulk and sold
mainly at $17.75-18.25. Several loads of No. 3,
300-350# butchers at the western Corn Belt mar-
kets during the week at $16.50-17.50. U. S. 1-3,
270-600# sows brought $15.00-17.25, largely
$15.5C-'"









Average cut-out value advantage of U. S. No.
1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows and
gilts was 930 per cwt. based on wholesale carlot
prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago February
23 to March 1, 1961 inclusive.
Feeder pigs sold steady at St. Paul and
Sioux City. Good and Choice 130-170# feeder
pigs at Sioux City brought $17.00-17.75, while
Good and Choice 130-160# at St. Paul sold at
$17.50-18.00.
HOGS In the Interior Iowa-Southern
Minnesota area receipts for the week were around
4 percent less than the previous week, but about
the same as in the corresponding week last
year. Prices fluctuated during the week with
barrows and gilts closing 25-400 lower than the
previous Friday. Sows made up about 4 percent
of the supply and sold mostly steady to 150
higher.
Mixed U. S. 1-3 190-240# barrows and giltE
closed from $17.25-17.95 with some No. 1-2
$17.50-18.25. U. S. 1-3 270-400# sows brought
$15.25-17.00, 400-550# $14.15-16.05.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets were slightly less than
the previous week but around 5 percent more
than the corresponding week last year. Continu-
ation of fairly liberal receipts, against a
lagging demand caused by slow movement and lower
prices on dressed lamb at wholesale centers
prompted price downturns in the live market.
Closing sales on slaughter lambs, compared wit.
the previous Friday, were steady to 500 lower
with sales at Denver, Fort Worth and Chicago
500-$1.00 lower; slaughter ewes mainly steady;
feeder and shearing lambs steady to 50f lower
except 500-$1.00 lower at Fort Worth.
Choice and Prime 85-117# wooled slaughter
lambs sold from $16.50-17.50 with scattered
sales 96-1035 $17.75-18.00; Choice and Prime
115-124# $15.50-16.75. Good and Choice 81-115#
$15.50-17.00; 115-150# $14.00-16.00. Choice and
and Prime 80-111# shorn slaughter lambs with No.
1 and fall shorn pelts brought $16.00-16.50 with
limited volume 96-105# lambs $16.75-17.00;
several shipments Choice 106-118# brought $15.75-
16.00; Good and Choice 81-110# with No. 2 to
fall shorn pelts $15.25-16.00. Cull to Choice
wooled and shorn slaughter ewes ranged from
$3.50-8.00.
Good and Choice 58-90# wooled feeder lambs
brought $16.00-17.50, load Choice 83# $18.00 at
Sioux City. At Fort Worth, Good shorn feeders
with No. 1 pelts sold at $14.50-15.00. Choice
fleshy shearing lambs 83-105# brought $16.50-
17.00 at Denver with few to $17.25; Choice 89-
99# 817.00-17.50 at Omaha.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area receipts were 5 percent more than a week
ago and 10 percent more than a year ago. The
increased volume proved ample for the demand and
the week's price trend was weak to fully 500
lower on slaughter lambs, slaughter ewes steady.
On Friday, Choice and Prime 80-105# wooled


slaughter lambs delivered to packing plants sold
at $16.50-17.00, 105-115# $15.00-16.50. Good
and Choice 80-110# $15.00-16.50. Choice and
Prime 80-100# lambs with No. 1 and fall shorn
pelts $15.50-16.00, Good and Choice $14.50-
15.50. Cull to Choice wooled slaughter ewes
brought $2.00-5.50, few $6.00.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy shorn domestic wools was
slow in the Boston market as prices held about
steady. A modest volume of pulled wools were sold
although trading was a little slower than in recent
weeks but prices held steady. Scoured shorn
wools and noils were very slow with only occasional
sales at about steady prices.
There were occasional sales of 1960 and 1961
wools in the western States while some 12 months
and lambs wool sold in Texas. A small volume of
medium grade fleece wools were sold in Ohio, Indi-
ana, Iowa and Minnesota.
Private cables from Sydney, Australia showed
an average selection of all types with Japan and
the Continent dominating in an active trade. There
was a good selection in Adelaide with Japan the
principal operator under very keen competition,
however, prices were unchanged. At Dunedin, New
Zealand, Japan, Bradford and the Continent were
active with prices firm. Prices at the Cape market
were steady to strong while trading was limited in
South America.
It was announced by the Crop Reporting Board
of the U. S. Department of Agriculture that shorn
and pulled wool production for 1960 totaled 300
million pounds grease basis. This was 2 percent
higher than the 1959 production of 294 million
pounds and 12 percent above the 1949-58 average
production of 268 million pounds. Shorn wool pro-
duction was 267 million pounds and pulled wool
production 335.6 million pounds for 1960.
Mohair production in the seven leading States
amounted to 24,445,000 pounds in 1960 which was 1
percent larger than the 24,151,000 pounds produced
in 1959 and 59 percent larger than the 10-year
average of 15,365,000 pounds.
Fleece Wools Graded 64s good French combing
and staple fleece wool sold at $1.10 clean basis
while graded 56/58s staple and good French combing
fleeces at 524 in the grease were estimated to cost
970 clean and 50/54s staple fleeces at 524 cost
around 94# clean basis, delivered Boston. Medium
fleece lambs wools brought 80-810 clean as shearing
resumed in Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota and Iowa.
Growers received mostly 42-435 for medium wools.
Territory Wools Graded territory 64s good
French combing and staple wool sold at $1.13 clean
basis while graded 60/62s good French and staple
brought around $1.05 and original bag fine and half-
blood territory wool was estimated at $1.08-1.11
clean basis delivered East. Original bag newly
shorn fine wools sold in the Bakersfield, California
area around 56-400 grease basis to the growers.
Texas Wools Choice selected 12 months Texas
wool sold at Ingram at $1.20 clean basis while lambs
wools at 51 grease basis to the grower cost mostly
$1.05-1.10 while shorter lambs wool brought $1.03
clean basis, delivered East.
Mohair Shearing resumed at Texas and mohair
was arriving slowly at the warehouse with occasional
sales at 91# for adult and $1.21l for kid hair.
Foreign Wools Trading on foreign wools con-
tinued very slow in the local market. 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.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold steady
to $2.00 lower for the week with the bulk 50#-
$2.00 off; cow beef fully 500-$1.00 lower; veal
and calf steady to $3.00 lower with some decline
at all markets; lamb steady to $3.00 lower with
sales at New York mostly $2.00-3.00 off; pork
loins weak to $2.00 lower, major portion late
at the full decline; other pork cuts steady to
$2.00 lower except fresh skinned hams at New York
fully $1.00 higher in view of broad demand in
processing channels.
Choice and Prime kosher steer forequarters
closed steady to $1.00 higher; lamb foresaddles
mostly $1.00 and $2.00 off; veal and calf $1.00-
3.00 lower, bulk at the full decline.
Trading on fresh meats along the Eastern
Seaboard was generally dull and a weak to lower
trend embraced practically the whole price
structure. Demand was poor and purchases con-
fined to essential needs as most retailers had
large meat inventories on hand. Lower wholesale
trends and attractive prices on features at
retail failed to stimulate activity. Supplies
were normal at all markets and there was some
carryover in all divisions with veal excepted
in instances.

CHICAGO The week's trend on steer and
heifer beef was $1.00-1.50 lower; veal $1.00-2.00
lower; lamb fully $1.00 lower; pork loins 8-16#
$2.50-3.00 lower; Boston butts 4-8# $2.00-2.50
lower; spareribs steady.
Steer and heifer beef, lamb and fresh pork
supplies were normal, Good still the predomi-
nating grade in beef. Lamb primarily carcasses
weighing 50-65# with 35-45# offerings relatively
scarce. Veal supply was moderate but fully ade-
quate for the prevailing demand. Carcass beef
prices declined in a slow trade. Early in the
week, all primal beef cuts except loins had
fairly broad outlets, however, by midweek chucks
started to slow and with loins very slow supplies
eventually became burdensome as dealers con-
tinued to break hinds to fill round orders.
Veal trade was dull and prices declined for
fourth straight week. Lamb stews and shoulders
enjoyed good clearance, otherwise trading on
lamb was slow. Lamb ribs and loins were hardest
to sell. Fresh pork trading was dull with daily
declines recorded on loins and Boston butte.

PACIFIC COAST Steer beef sold 504-$1.00
higher for the week in Los Angeles but steady at
other centers. Cow beef sold steady to 500
higher with the advance limited to southern Cali-
fornia. Lamb closed steady to $1.00 lower.
Fresh pork was steady to $1.00 lower, except
loins and hams $1.00 higher in instances; smoked


pork mostly steady except for a few smoked hams
$3.00 higher in San Francisco.
Normal receipts of most classes of dressed
meats were fully ample except for Choice 500-
600# steer beef as well as cow beef short of de-
mand in Los Angeles, and Choice heifer and veal
along with cow beef was limited in the North-
west. Trading on steer beef was moderately
active in Los Angeles and rather slow in other
sectors although trading was somewhat more
active than in recent weeks. Lamb trading was
slow and demand generally poor. Trading on
fresh and cured pork was only moderately active.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

MIDWEST CABLOT DRESSED MEAT SUMMARY -
Based on reports from major slaughtering centers
in Omaha, Kansas City, Sioux City, Sioux Palls,
St. Paul, St. Joseph, St. Louis and in the
Interior Iowa-So. Minnesota area.

lower; cow beef steady to 50 lower. Choice and
Prime lamb carcasses sold $1.00-2.00 lower; pork
loins $3.00-3.50 lower; Boston butts $1.50-2.00
lower; fresh hams 500-$1.50 higher. Pork sides
were 25-550 lower.
Sharp price declines were general on most
classes of fresh meats under a rather poor de-
mand. Fresh hams the exception, showing an
advance. Supplies were about normal with clear-
ance of beef incomplete while other classes
cleared fairly well.
Following prices f.o.b. packing plant.
Choice 600-700# steer carcasses closed at $40.00-

U. S. No. 1, 2 and 3, 135-155* pork carcasses
$25.60-26.25; 155-175# $25.25-26.00.


CARLOT SUMMARY Chicago, Denver, New York
and Philadelphia. Poor demand at moat points
influenced lower price trends. Steer and heifer
beef sold 504-$2.00 lower for the week with a
large share of sales $1.00-1.50 off; cow beef
mostly steady except steady to 50# higher at
:hi:'o; lamb 504-$2.00 lower; pork loins $2.50-
3.00 off.
In general, normal production of meats
exceeded prevailing outlet which was poor for
the most part. However, moderate supplies of
cow beef found fairly good demand.

MOHAIR PRODUCTION AND VALUE 1960
(with revised estimates 1954-59)

Mohair production in the 7 leading States in 1960 totaled 24,445,000 pounds,
according to the Crop Reporting Board. The 1960 clip was 1 percent larger than the
24,151,000 pounds produced in 1959, and 59 percent larger than the 10-year average
of 15,365,000 pounds.
Texas, the leading mohair producing State, accounted for most of the increase.
The 1960 increase in Texas resulted from clipping a larger number of goats since the
average weight of hair per goat clipped was smaller.
The number of goats and kids clipped in the 7 States in 1960 was 3,884,000 head--
up 3 percent from the 3,755,000 head clipped in 1959. The average weight of hair per
goat and kid clipped was 6.3 pounds-only slightly below the record of 6.4 pounds in
1959.
Value of mohair produced in 1960 amounted to $21,442,000--a decrease of 8 percent
from 1959. The average price received by growers for mohair from April 1960 through
January 1961 was 87.7 cents. The average price received for mohair in the 1959
marketing year was 96.5 cents per pound and the 10-year average was 81.9 cents.
Revised estimates for 1954-59 are shown in this report. These revisions re-
sulted from an appraisal of data on goats and mohair from the Census of Agriculture
taken in the fall of 1959 and on other data which became available after the
original estimates were made.

------------------------------------------------------------
_/ In States where goats are clipped twice a year the number clipped is the sum of goats
and kids clipped in the spring and kids clipped in the fall.
2/ For each State the average price is weighted average for mohair sold April 1960
through January 1961. The U. S. average price is computed by weighting State prices
by production of mohair.
