MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices declined on all classes of live-
stock. The volume of slaughter steers and heif-
ers at the seven markets totaled 103,500 head,
largest since the first week in March, but were
18,000 head short of a year ago. Slaughter
steers at most centers sold steady to $1.00
lower while heifers were largely 25 to 50# low-
er. Cows and feeders sold steady to 50# lower.
Barrows and gilts closed the week steady to 50f
lower. Sheep and lambs also sold steady to 50f
lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Despite the
fact that cattle receipts Monday were the
largest for any day since January, the twelve
market supplies were slightly smaller than the
previous week and 7 percent less than a year
ago. Prices broke early under the stress of
numbers, and wholesale dressed beef prices de-
clined in sympathy. However, slaughter steers
and heifers recovered at least a part of the
ground lost early, as receipts were sharply
curtailed, and dressed beef prices also worked
higher late but(not enough to offset early
losses. Slaughter steers closed steady to $1.00
lower, 25# to .1.00 lower at most points. Choice
and Prime grades were under most downward
pressure, and for the fourth straight week the
spread in steer prices grew narrower. Heifers
finished mostly 25-75# lower and cows steady to
50f lower in a general way with bulls off as
much as $1.00. Vealers declined $1.00-2.00 at
leading markets for this class of stock. About
8 percent of the steers in Chicago graded Prime,
most for any week in about two months. However,
at most other points, Good to average-Choice
grades predominated in the slaughter steer and
heifer supply and at St. Paul the majority
graded Standard and Good. Only 11 percent of
the Chicago cattle supply was slaughter heifers
smallest in 45 weeks, and the percentage of cows
and bulls at most markets increased slightly.
Slaughter steers: For the first time since
February, Prime steers failed to sell at $30.00
or better in Chicago, six loads 1250-1575#
weights cashing at $29.75 with bulk high-Choice
and Prime 1150-1400# $27.75-29.50. Very few
steers sold above $27.00 at markets outside
Chicago, with Choice bulking at $25.25-26.75,
Good at $22.00-25.00, Standard selling down to
519.00.
Slaughter heifers: A few loads high-Choice
and Prime heifers .26.50-27.25, bulk Choice
$24.50-26.25, Good legely $21.75-24.50.
Slaughter cows: Most Utility and Commercial
cows $14.50-16.50, Canner and Cutter largely
$12.00-15.00.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Moderate re-
ceipts of feeder cattle and calves at terminal
markets were little different in volume than


usual during early May. Good to average Choice
grades predominated but shipments of mixed
Choice and Fancy offerings were in moderate
supply at several markets, principally Omaha
and Sioux City. A large percent of the over-
all supply consisted of 550-750# yearling
steers. Trading generally was only moderately
active at unevenly steady to 50# lower prices.
A lower price trend for slaughter cattle was a
bearish factor in the feeder trade but at the
same time lessened competition from slaughter-.
ers resulted in a moderately increased number
of partly fattened 800-1050# steers being
routed into feeder buyer channels.
Feeder steers: Bulk Good and Choice 800-
1050# $22.00-25.00, few Choice 800-850,/ $25.25;
Medium and mixed Medium and Good 800-1000#
$18.50-22.00. Moderate number Choice and mixed
Choice and Fancy 535-65Q? $28.5C0-0.0C; Good
and Choice 50O-75Cq chiefly $25.50-28.OO.Medium
and mixed Medium and Good 550-7507 sold from
Z18.50-24.00*
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-750.y
largely $21.50-25.75, few loads Choice 500-600#
626.00-27.00. At Sioux City few loads Choice
613-744# $24.00-25.00 and Good 677# $21.25.
Feeder calves: Choice and Fancy thin 374
and 427# steers from a reputation herd $35.00-
56.00, accompanied by 360-375r heifers at
$31.00-52.50. Other Choice and mixed Choice
and Fancy 350-550C steers ;27.00-52.00; Good
and mixed Good and Choice $24.00 to $28.50.
Good and Choice 350-500- heifers $22.50-28.00.

HOGS Terminal markets After being de-
pressed sharply at the start of the week due to
liberal mari:etings, prices steadied and even
rallied somewhat on later days, but lower
prices still prevailed at the close. Barrows
and gilts sold steady to 50# lower at most of
the markets, although Sioux City was steady to
250 higher, and South St. Paul enjoyed an up-
turn of mostly 25#. Sow prices were steady to
25# lower except steady to 25# higher at St.
Paul, Indianapolis, and Sioux City. Sows com-
prised 9 percent of receipts at 8 markets.
Barrows and gilts: U. S. 1-2, 190-240#

Feeder pigs were steady at Sioux City and
50# higher at St. Paul. Most Choice 140-160#
feeder pigs sold at $14.50-15.00,
Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area receipts totaled 270,000 head, compared
with 335,000 the previous week and 551,000 a
year ago. Supply largely U. S. 1-5 200-250#
barrows and gilts; sows comprised 8 percent
of run. Compared with previous Friday, late
sales of barrows and gilts were 25# lower; sows









steady to 25f lower.

SHEEP AND LAUIS Receipts at the 12
markets numbered 81,000 head, compared with
79,000 a week ago and 105,000 last year. Old
crop shorn slaughter lambs predominated in the
receipts. Spring lambs represented 8 percent
of supplies at Omaha and 40 percent at Fort
Worth. Advances on dressed lamb failed to
irfluerce the live trade as slaughter lambs
sold steady to 50f lower than the previous
week's close. At Fort Worth prices were $1.00-
1.50 lower, but fully steady to 50f higher at
Denver. Slaughter ewes were steady to strong.
Feeder lambs sold steady to 25# lower except for
r57-1l.00 declines at Fort Worth.

Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area numbered 8,100
head, compared to 11,500 the previous week and
18,500 last year. The sharply reduced lamb
marketing met with only fair demand and com-
pared with last weekta close, old-crop slaugh-
ter lambs were weak to mostly 500 lower.
Slaughter ewes sold steady. Shorn slaughter
lambs accounted for 75-80 percent of receipts.
A alight increase in spring lamb numbers


occurred but the class was too scarce to provide
an adequate test of trading.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic combing wools was
slow on the Boston market. Occasional small sales
of scoured woolen wools of foreign origin were sold
about steady while the movement of noils was very
small.
Trading was active on unsold clips in the
Western States and a sealed bid sale was held at
Roswell, New Mexico. Medium grade wools sold well
in the fleece wool States and trade was very active
in Texas with prices steady to strong.
The Dominion auctions resumed this week after
the Easter recess. Prices were approximately 21
percent lower at the opening sale in Brisbane but
firmed somewhat at midweek. Continental interests,
Japan and the United States were the principal
operators. At Invercargill, New Zealand the market
was active with demand good. At Bradford prices

and coarser wools were slightly easier and second
shear wools uneven. The South African markets were
irm under Peneral competition while the South
American markets were inactive.
Fleece Wools Country buyers were paying from
48-550 but mostly 51-520 for medium grade wools to
the growers. Approximately two million pounds will
be offered for sale in Virginia within the next
two weeks.
Territory Wools A fair weight of bulk medium
grade wools sold at a sealed bid sale in North
Dakota. The Lisbon pool brought 52.524 as three-
eighths was estimated around $1.10-1,12 and quarter-
-blood wool at $1.08-1. ..9 delivered East. The Steel
pool sold at 50.50 while the Slope pool went to a
local dealer at 50.25#. At the Tri-county pool in
Oregon 13,000 ranch fleeces sold at 55.58# f.o.b.

Roewell, New Mexico were estimated mostly at $1.21-
1.25 clean basis for small clips while large clips
later in the week were estimated around $1.50,
clean basis, delivered.
Texas Wools A fair weight of wool sold in
Texas at steady prices or $1.27-1.50 for good 12
months wools and $1.07-1.15 for 8 months clips on
a clean basis, delivered East.
Mohair Trade in mohair was very slow.

9 months spinners style merino wools sold for ship-
ment around $1.27 clean basis, duty paid. Greasy
Buenos Aires November second clips for combing use
sold around 81 and fleeces at 890 clean basis,

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Prices were generally
lower for most-red meats and pork. Steer carcass
prices were steady to 750 lower for the week,
bulk 500 off; cow beef weak to 500 lower; veal
and calf steady to mostly $1.00 off. Lamb was
steady to $1.00 lower, but at New York the week's
trend was strong to $1.00 higher following sharp
early downturns. Pork loins sold weak to $2.50
lower, major portion $1.00-2.00 lower; Boston
butts $1.00-2.00 off; fresh skinned hams steady
to $2.00 lower; spareribs steady to $1.00 up.
Price declines of 500-$1.50 were recorded
for Choice and Prime kosher steer forequarters
and the trend for lamb was weak to $2.00 lower.
Prices were unchanged for kosher dressed veal
and calf.
Supplies of most railstocks and pork were
normal, while receipts of lamb were moderate.
Early in the week at New York and Washington
receipts of lamb reached normal proportions
mainly in view of carryover from previous
period. Trading for steer beef was moderately
active for hindquarters and ribs, but arm chucks
sold slowly at the various markets along the
Eastern Seaboard. Outlet for veal and calf was
fairly broad. Demand was moderate for lamb,
however, at New York carcasses moved slowly at
the outset, but at the close demand broadened
noticeably. Retailer demand was fair for pork
and normal clearance for loins was largely at-
tributed to the fact that the price range was
the lowest for any week during the current year.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold steady
to 500 lower, veal steady to mostly $1.00 lower,
lamb steady to 500 lower, pork loins 8-16#
$1.50-3.50 lower, full decline on 12-16# loins.
Boston butts 4-8# were steady to $1.00 lower,
spareribs 3# down steady.
Steer and heifer beef, lamb and fresh pork
supplies were normal, veal moderate, all offer-
ings fully adequate for trade requirements.
Most beef fell into the Good and Choice grades,
lamb in the main weighed 55-65#, pork loins
12-16# most plentiful.
Carcass beef trade generally was dull.
However, the most bearish contributing factor
here was a very slow trade in chucks and fore-
quarters, arm and squarecut chucks showing a
full $2.00 decline. Other primal beef cuts had
adequate outlets, mostly at levels of the pre-
vious week's close till late when upturns were
recorded. Veal trade slow, all grades working
lower except Standard, steady. Carcass lamb
and all primal cuts slow through midweek. How-
ever, late Wednesday demand improved and this


along with higher replacements advanced
selling prices, thus erasing part of early
decline. Spareribs sold in a moderately
active trade, pork loins and butts slow on
each session.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold fairly active. Prices were mostly
steady in California. Steer beef was steady
to weak and heifer steady to 50 lower in the
Portland-Seattle area. Cow and bull beef was
slow, weak to $1.00 lower. Veal and calf
was moderately active, steady. Calf sold
moderately active, strong to $1.00 higher in
Southern California. Spring lamb was moder-
ately active at Los Angeles, strong to $1.00
higher with the full advance on Choice and
Prime 45-55#. Elsewhere trading was slow,
mostly steady. Fresh pork was slow, steady
to $2.00 lower in the Pacific Northwest and
mostly steady in California. Bacon sold
moderately active, steady to $2.00 higher in
the Portland-Seattle area, steady elsewhere;
other cured pork cuts were slow, steady to
$1.00 lower, full decline on hams and mainly
in Portland. Supplies were near normal for
all classes.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, IDNVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Trading on normal supplies
steer and heifer beef was generally slow
under limited demand. Part of the week's
early decline at shipping centers was re-
covered in the late trade. Choice steer
beef was steady to $1.00 lower for the week
with some sales $1.75 lower at New York.
Good carcasses sold steady to 500 lower,
some $1.00 lower at Omaha. Heifer beef was
mostly steady. Cow beef sold steady to 50O
lower. Clearance on beef classes was gener-
ally complete at shipping centers.
Carcass lamb supplies were slightly
below normal. Trading was moderately active
under fair demand. Prices were steady to
$1.50 higher with some sales $2.00 higher
at Denver. Clearance was complete.
Pork supplies were normal and trading
moderately active. Pork loins sold mostly
500-$1.50 lower, instances $2.00 lower late
at Omaha. Pork butts were steady to 50O
lower. Fresh hams sold largely steady to
$1.00 lower, some $2.00 off at Omaha. Pork
carcasses sold $1.00-1.50 lower at New York
and Philadelphia. Clearance was fair on
pork products.
