MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers sold steady to 50 higher
at most midwest terminals with heifers generally
steady to 250 higher. Cows sold unevenly steady
to $1.00 higher with sales 500 higher at sev-
eral centers. Feeder cattle and calves were
steady at midwest markets but at southwest ter-
minals sales were weak to $1.00 lower under the
influence of expanded marketing. Barrows and
gilts sold steady to 75# lower for the week
in the Western Corn Belt but were steady to
400 higher in the eastern part of the area.
Sows were steady to 750 lower except 25# higher
at Kansas City and 25-500 up at Indianapolis.
Slaughter lambs sold steady to 500 lower, slaugh-
ter ewes and feeder lambs steady.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES The week
started with about 25 percent fewer cattle at
twelve markets Monday as the result of snow
blocked roads in some areas. But marketing
expanded when weather and road conditions im-
proved and the week ended with supplies 15 per-
cent greater than the previous week and 6 per-
cent larger than a year ago. Slaughter cattle
generally sold higher Monday influenced by very
small supplies, but early upturns at some points
were shaded or entirely erased by the week-end.
Nonetheless, closing prices on slaughter steers
generally steady to 50# higher with Choice and
Prime showing most advance. At several markets,
Choice and Prime steers reached new highs in
more than a year, and in Chicago such cattle
sold higher for the fifth consecutive week.
Heifers generally steady to 25# higher except
steady to 50# lower at a few Western Corn Belt
centers. Cows uneven, steady to $1.00 higher,
mainly 50# up. Bulls sold steady to 50# higher
but vealers were weak to $1.00 lower at St.
Louis and $2.00-3.00 off at St. Paul. Slaughter
steer and heifer supplies graded largely Good
to average-Choice. Around 10 percent of the
steers in Chicago were Prime which was a small
reduction from the previous week, and compared
with 14 percent Prime a year ago.
Slaughter steers: At Chicago, around a
dozen loads Prime 1225-1425 $30.25-Z0.54O, lat-
ter price highest since July 1960, numerous
mixed Choice and Prime $29.00-30.00, bulk Choice
$26.50-28.75, mixed Good and Choice $25.50-26.50,
Good $25.00-25.50. At other midwest markets
Choice bulked at $25.25-27.00, some high-Choice
and Prime $27.00-28.50, mixed Good and Choice
$24.50-25.50, Good $22.00-25.00.
Slaughter heifers: Choice sold from
:5S.75-27.75 at Chicago with Choice and Prime
reaching $28.25 and Good to low-Choice from
$22.50-25.50. At other centers most Choice
brought $25.00-26.50, few high-Choice and Prime
$26.50-27.00, Good and low-Choice $21.50-25. '0.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
largely $15.50-17.50 and most Canner and Cutter
$13.00-16.00.


FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Weather condi-
tions continued to be a principal factor in-
fluencing both marketing and demand. In
the northern half of the midwest early week
receipts were sharply curtailed when snow ac-
companied by high winds all but stopped high-
way traffic in some areas for a day or two.
At the same time, receipts at some southwestern
markets were substantially increased by a sea-
sonal expansion in marketing from wheatpasture
areas. Although decidedly unfavorable weather
at least temporarily restrained demand
at some centers, supplies at those snow affected
terminals were curtailed to the extent that out-
let still proved sufficient to maintain prices
on an unchanged basis. In fact, prices at all
midwest markets varied but very little from a
steady basis. Meanwhile, at some southwest
markets prices weakened under the weight of
liberal numbers. At Oklahoma City where re-
ceipts were largest since October of last year,
prices were 500-$1.00 lower, most decline on
Medium to Good kinds.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
largely $22.00-24.50, few loads Choice 800-900#
$24.75-25.55. At Kansas City several loads
Choice and Fancy, partly fattened, 800-900#
$25.75-26.50, these already high-Good and Choice
from a slaughter standpoint. Scattered sales
Choice and mixed Choice and Fancy 550-600#
$27.50-29.00; bulk Good and Choice 550-750#
$23.00-27.00; Medium and mixed Medium and Good
550-750' $18.50-23.50. At Sioux City mixed
Medium and Good X1000 sold at $18.75.
Feeder heifers: This class scarce at
most markets, scattered sales Good and Choice
525-700# ranged $20.00-25.00, most sales
$22.00-24.50.
Feeder calves: Choice, thin, 462# steers
$32.10 but such kinds scarce; bulk Good and
Choice 350-550, $25.00-30.00, few Good $24.00.
Good and Choice 350-5C0- heifers $22.00-27.00,
few Choice 280-325- $28.00-30.00.

HOGS Terminal markets Due to the snow
in the northern corn belt, Monday' s twelve mar-
ket supply was the smallest for that day since
April 1961. The following runs were greatly ex-
panded resulting in a sharp price break on
barrows and gilts and late sales were steady
to 75# lower than the previous week's close at
Western Corn Belt terminals. However, in the
eastern part of the area the week's trend was
steady to 40# higher. Sows remained in re-
latively small numbers but prices were generally
steady to 50# lower, except 25# higher at Kan-
sas City and 25-50# up at Indianapolis. As
a rule, order buying was very limited through-
out the area. Receipts at the twelve markets
were 5 percent greater than last week and 2
percent above the corresponding week a year
ago.

Choice were steady at Sioux City with 140-165#1
feeders $14.75-15.25.
Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area receipts totaled 3354,000 head, compared with
329,000 the previous week and 523,000 a year ear-
lier. Price weakness on most sessions resulted

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12 ter-
minals numbered 99,000 head, 6 percent over the
previous week and 13 percent more than last year.
Good demand and price upturns featured early
trading on slaughter lambs at midwest centers
with advances on dressed lamb supporting the live
trade. Marketings expanded on later sessions
and price declines more than offset the earlier
strength and slaughter lambs closed steady to
50# lower, most decline on wooled lambs. Slaugh-
ter ewes and feeder lambs were in limited supply,
steady,

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic combing wools in
the Boston market continued dull with supplies re-
stricted. Prices were nominal.
Woolen wools were moderately active while
noils continued slow.
Range sales continued at last week's pace
with a substantial weight of wool moved in Montana
and Wyoming while a fair volume of wool was taken
up in Oregon. Texas wools were slow to move due
to severe weather conditions while activity in the
fleece States was slow although demand was fairly
good for early shorn medium fleeces.
Cabled reports from Australia early in the
week showed restricted buying with an average
selection while at midweek competition was general
with the Continent and Japan active. The Timaru,
New Zealand sale was active with general compe-
tition. Fine half-breds and fine cross-breds were
firm with medium and coarse 46/50s cross-breds
slightly easier and carpet style cross-bred wools
firm. In South Africa, England, United States and
France were the principal buyers. The South

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CABLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
steady to $1.00 higher. Choice carcasses at
New York and Philadelphia were 25-50# higher.
Cow beef sold 500-$1.00 higher. Veal and calf
prices were steady to $1.00 higher with Phila-
delphia showing the full advance, otherwise
mainly strong. Lamb held fully steady to $1.00
higher, some as much as $2.00 higher at Balti-
more. Pork loins were $1.00-2.00 higher at
New York and $1.00 lower at Philadelphia with
other markets mainly steady. Other pork cuts
were generally steady, except Boston butte 500
lower at New York and $1.00 off at Philadelphia.
Kosher prices were $1.00 higher for Choice
and Prime steer forequarters and the trend for
lamb was weak to mostly $1.00 lower. Veal and
calf sold strong to $1.00 up.
Receipts of all classes were mostly normal
at various Eastern Seaboard markets and lamb
slightly above normal at Washington. Beef and
veal tonnage on offer at New York was some less
than normal. Clearance was generally complete
at all markets. Demand for beef was moderately
broad and trading fairly active. Forequarters
and related cuts moved readily early, and after
midweek outlet improved for hindquarters. Veal
and calf was fairly active and demand was good
on curtailed supplies. Lamb fairly active as
demand was broad by some Eastern retail chains
which absorbed bulk for featured sales. Pork
sold moderately active with demand fairly broad.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef carcasses
sold steady to' 500 higher, veal steady, lamb 50#
lower, pork loins 8-16# $1.50-2.00 higher;
Boston butte 4-8# 50# lower, spareribs 3# down
steady.
Veal supply was still considered small but
showed a slight increase compared to recent
weeks. Beef, lamb and fresh pork were available
in normal volume, Good and Choice beef the most
plentiful. Lamb carcasses in the main weighed
55-65#.
Carcass beef trade was rather slow. Through
midweek, arm and equarecut chucks, ribs and loins
were absorbed rather readily, however, late
Wednesday and on closing sessions, the rib trade
was slow. Rounds slow, although demand improved
late for hindquarters. Despite a slow veal
trade, dealers were able to clear small tonnage.


Carcass lamb was in fair demand. Hindsaddles
found adequate outlets, fore end cuts were
slow, but the movement on ribs showed a slight
improvement in the late trade. A slow opening
fresh pork trade turned moderately active but
slowed again and prices weakened.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold 50# higher in Los Angeles, steady
to $1.00 higher in Northern California and
the Pacific Northwest. Cow beef was $1.00 to
$2.50 higher in California and steady to
strong in the Portland-Seattle area. Calf
held about steady in all areas. Lamb was
steady to $1.00 higher in the Pacific North-
west but mainly steady in California. Fresh
pork sold strong to $2.00 higher except spare-
ribs and shoulders were weak to $1.00 lower.
Cured pork was steady. Steer and heifer beef
sold in moderately active trade; supplies
were normal except Good and Choice 700-900#
carcasses were very short in California. A
small supply of cow beef met a very broad
demand. A rather liberal volume of other
classes of meats met good demand.

CABLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Although demand was only
moderate, prices advanced on fully normal
supplies of carcass beef. Early trading was
slow but improved late and prices equaled
those of two weeks ago which were highest of
the current year. Steer and heifer beef sold
mainly steady to 50# higher with heifer beef
50#-$1.00 higher at Denver. Good grades of
both classes sold $1.00 higher at Philadelphia.
Cow beef sold 250-$1.00 higher, mostly 50#-
$1.00 up. Clearance was good on beef offer-
ings.
Demand was moderate and trading slow on
normal supplies of lamb and prices were steady
to $1.00 higher. Clearance was generally
complete.
Normal supplies of pork products sold
in an uneven trade with pork loins steady to
$1.50 higher, mostly $1.00 higher. Pork butts
were 500-$1.00 lower and fresh hams sold
steady to 500 lower. Pork carcasses sold
25-50 higher at New York and Philadelphia.
Clearance was generally complete.
