MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steer and heifer prices at Corn
Belt terminals were steady to 500 higher,
mostly 25-500 up with Choice and Prime again
showing the major share of the advance. Cows
were generally steady to 50# higher, although
sales at Sioux City and St. Louis were steady
to 50# lower and 50-75# off at Sioux Falls.
Feeder cattle and calves found broad demand
and sold steady to 500 higher with some sales
$1.00 up. Barrows and gilts were steady to
50# lower and sows were steady to 75# lower.
Old crop slaughter lambs were strong to 500
higher, spring slaughter lambs steady to 250
higher, slaughter ewes steady to 50# lower,
and limited numbers of feeder lambs sold
steady to 25# higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers and heifers sold steady to 50# higher,
generally 25-500 higher, thus marking the
eighth weekly advance in the past nine weeks.
The average cost of slaughter steers at several
centers this week reached the highest point
in the past two years. Moderate upturns on
steer and heifer carcasses along with moderate
receipts prompted the advance. Demand con-
tinued to center on the scant supply of high-
Choice and Prime steers, particularly on kinds
weighing over 1200#. Higher cow beef prices
supported the steady to 500 advance in the
live trade, although sales at Sioux City and
St. Louis were steady to 50# lower and 50-75#
off at Sioux Falls. Bulls were generally
steady and vealers strong to $3.00 higher.
Slaughter steers: At Chicago 2 loads
Prime 1265-1344# $32.75-553.00, most Prime
1150-1400# $31.50-32.50; high-Choice and
mixed-Choice and Prime 1150-1400# $29.25-31.50.
Choice 950-1400, bulked at $27.00-29.25. At
other midwest terminals, high-Choice and Prime
$28.25-29.00, most Choice $26.00-28.00. Load-
lots mixed Good and Choice $25.25-26.00, Good
$22.75-25.50.
Slaughter heifers: Most Choice $25.00-
26.75, high-Choice and Prime $27.00-27.50 and
load Prime $28.00 at Chicago. Good largely
$22.00-25.00.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
$14.75-17.00, Canner and Cutter $12.00-15.00,
largely $12.50-15.00.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES A good demand
existed for feeder cattle and calves and, in
brisk trading, moderate supplies at midwest
terminals sold unevenly steady to 500 higher.
At Sioux City and Sioux Falls, where the after-
effects of a violent winter had retarded de-
mand during recent weeks, prices were as much
as $1.00 higher. As usual at the start of a
new grazing season, there was widespread
interest in thin cattle under 650# and at some


markets this kind led the advance. However,
fleshy cattle suitable for immediate drylot
feeding also came in for considerable attention
and shared a large part of the higher trend.
Slaughter cattle buyers often found feeder buy-
ers aggressive competitors on fleshy two-way
kinds. Cattle finishers showed noticeably less
hesitance in taking on 950-1050# steers showing
sufficient finish to grade high-Good and low-
Choice in the beef than was the case a few weeks
back.
Feeder steers: Choice, partly fattened,
975# brought $26.15; few loads Choice fleshy
800-975# $25.00-25.85; bulk Good and Choice
800-1050# $22.50-25.00, few Good and mixed
Medium and Good $21.00-22.00. Scattered ship-
ments Choice and mixed Choice and Fancy 525-
650# $27.50-29.00, load 558# $32.75. Bulk
Good and Choice 550-750# $24.00-27.00; Medium
and mixed Medium and Good 550-750# $20.00-24.00.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-750#
$21.50-26.00; 600# and heavier mostly $25.00
down. Several loads Choice 500-510# $26.25-
27.00.
Feeder calves: Load Choice and Fancy 400#
steers $34.00 and 422# reputation Wyomings
$33.50; other Good and Choice 350-550# steers
ranged $24.00-32.50, majority sales $26.00-
31.00. Good and Choice 350-500# heifers $22.50-
28.00.

HOGS Terminal markets Further improve-
ment in road conditions throughout most of the
area enabled the recent backlog of hog supplies
to begin moving to market. The 12 market run
was 8 percent larger than the previous week
and 25 percent greater than the corresponding
week a year ago. The expanded receipts and a
bearish pork trade influenced lower hog prices
at the majority of centers. Compared with the
previous week's close, barrows and gilts were
steady to 50# lower at most markets although
sales were fully 250 higher at St. Paul and
steady to 25# higher at Sioux City. Sows were
steady to 75f lower, extremes $1.00 lower at
Sioux Falls. St. Paul again was an exception
with 25-500 higher prices. Sow receipts were
estimated at 8 percent of the eight market
supply the same as the previous week.
Barrows and gilts: U. S. 1-2, 190-240#
$16.55-16.75, moderate volume $16.85-17.00. No.
1-3, 190-250# $15.75-16.50, large volume $15.75-
16.25.
Sows: No. 1-3, 270-400# $13.50-14.75,
mainly $14.00-14.50. No. 2-3, 400-550# $12.50-
14.00, mainly $13.00-14.00 in the western Corn
Belt.
Feeder pigs at St. Paul were 50# higher
with Choice 120-160# selling at $15.00-15.25.
At Sioux City prices were unchanged, Good and
Choice 140-165# sold from $14.50-15.00.








Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area receipts totaled 528,000 head, compared
with 340,000 the previous week and 286,000 the
corresponding week last year. Receipts were
largely No. 1-3 200-250# barrows and gilts with
around 6 percent of the run sows. Late price
advances on barrows and gilts more than offset
earlier declines and resulted in a steady to
10* higher weekly trend on 190-240# butchers.
Heavier butchers were mainly steady. Sows 270-
400# were 25f lower than the previous Friday,
while 400-550# were about steady.
Barrows and gilts: U. S. 1-3, 200-250#
closed at $15.55-16.00, No. 1-2 $15.75-16.15.
Sows: U. S. 1-3, 270-400# mainly $15.25-
14.50; No. 2-3 400-550# $12.00-13.50.
Hogs Interior Illinois Receipts
totaled 113,200 compared with 115,400the pre-
vious week and 84,100 a year earlier. Demand
was only fair throughout the week. Early and
late downturns more than offset strength at
midweek and barrows and gilts closed unevenly
steady to 250 lower than the previous Friday.
Sows were 25-500 lower.
Barrows and gilts: On Friday U. S. No.
1-3 185-240/ $15.50-16.00; Southwest areas
mostly $15.50-15.75. Some 200-22C# $16.00-
16.25, with limited volume sorted No. 1-2
$16.25-16.75. No. 1-5 230-250# $15.00-15.50.
Sows: U. S. No. 1-3 250-350# $15.75-
14.75; 550-400# $13.00-13.75. No. 2-3 400-500#
$12.00-15.00.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
terminals totaled 91,000 head, 15 percent more
than a week earlier but little changed from
last year. Much of the expansion in marketing
was noted at Denver and Fort Worth, particular-
ly the latter market where 7,500 spring slaugh-
ter lambs were offered. Moderate marketing
coupled with price upturns on dressed lamb were
bullish factors supporting advances in the live
trade. Compared with last week's close, old
crop slaughter lambs sold strong to 50# higher,
while spring slaughter lambs were steady to
25# higher. Slaughter ewes sold steady to 50f
lower. Limited numbers of feeder lambs brought
steady to 25# higher prices.
Old crop slaughter lambs: Choice and
Choice with end of Prime 85-1174 wooled sold
from $17.00-18.50, many sales $17.50-18.25.
Choice 117-126# $16.60-17.50. Good and Choice
80-119# $16.00-17.75, Choice with few Prime
88-112. shorn No. 2 to fall shorn pelts $16.50-
17.75, few shipments 92-105# No. 1-2 pelts
$18.00. Limited volume Choice 95-116# with No.
3 pelts along with Good and Choice 82-105# No.
2 to fall shorn pelts $15.50-17.25.
Spring slaughter lambs: Choice and mostly
Prime 83-112# $19.00-20.00, Choice 89-115# and
some Good and Choice 64-97# sold from $18.00-
19.50.
Slaughter ewes: Cull to Good wooled $4.00-
7.50; shorn ewes $5.00-6.50.
Feeder lambs: Choice and Fancy 75-1014#


wooled $15.00-17.10, Good and Choice 60-85#
$13.00-16.50. Few consignments Choice shearing
lambs 75-101# $16.00-17.30.
Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area numbered 11,000
head, 26 percent below a week earlier and 38
percent less than last year. Reduced marketing
influenced advances of 500 on wooled slaughter
lambs and 50-750 on shorn lambs. An increased
volume of slaughter ewes sold weak to $1.00
lower. Shorn slaughter lambs represented fully
50 percent of the lamb supply and bulk of this
class carried No. 2 and 3 pelts.
Slaughter lambs: Choice with few Prime 85-
110# wooled delivered to packing plants sold at
$17.50-18.00; Choice 110-120# along with Good
and low-Choice 85-110# $17.00-17.75. Choice and
end of Prime 80-110# shorn No. 2 to fall shorn
pelts $17.00-18.00; Choice No. 2-3 pelts
$16.50-17.25. Good to low-Choice 85-110# No.
1-3 pelts $16.00-17.25.
Slaughter ewes: Cull to Good wooled $3.00-
5.00, shorn $2.50-4.50.

COLORADO, SOUTHERN WYOMING, WESTERN KANSAS
AND WESTERN NEBRASKA Trading direct at feed-

ceding two weeks. Slaughter steers sold steady
to strong while heifers were steady to weak with
some sales 250 lower. Slaughter steers 1150#
and heavier continued to find broadest outlet.
Supplies of Choice steers and heifers continued
very moderate and this was a factor tending to
hold volume down.

Texas. A modest weight of medium wools was
moved in the fleece wool States.

poor selection of mostly "B" and "C" fault
wools in Australia with Japan and the Conti-
nent active. The cross-bred market in Geelong
was active. At Wellington, New Zealand, Eastern
Europe was dominating in 50s and finer wools.

tition from other sections. Activity in South
America was very dull with occasional sales of

reputation clip of bulk half, with some three-
eighths, amounting to about 250,000 pounds sold
under sealed bid at 50.96# f.o.b. Several other
clips amounting to about 150,000 pounds bulk
half, some three-eighths, brought 500-5041
grease basis, f.o.b. Choice 12 months Roswell
wools sold around $1.50 with most other New
Nexico wools moving in a range of $1.20-1.30

tinued broad with sales of good 12 months around

around 950 delivered East.

firm,but selection was poor. Activity in spot

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN APLCT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTEPRN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
steady to $1.00 higher aside from some Good grade
5001 lower at Philadelphia; cow beef steady to
$1.00 lower; veal strong to $1.00 higher at New
York and calf fully $1.00 higher at that market.
The trend for veal at Philadelphia and Washing-
ton was steady to $2.00 lower and steady at
other markets. Lamb was fully $1.00-1.50 higher
at New York and steady to $1.00 higher at Wash-
ington, otherwise mostly steady. Pork loins
sold weak to $2.00 lower. Other pork cuts were
mostly steady, instances $1.00 lower for Boston
butts and fresh skinned hams at New York.
Trading was fairly active for kosher dressed
steer beef and lamb, but only moderately active
for veal and calf. Quotations were unchanged,
but bulk of late sales were in the upper half
of the quotation range.
Supplies were normal in all divisions and
adequate over all. Clearance was fairly complete
despite sluggishness for pork with late flurry
of buying instrumental in cleanup of loins.
Trading for beef was generally active with demand
fairly broad. Prime steer beef was in very
small supply and moved readily with bulk to hotel
and restaurant supply houses. Veal and calf
movement was mostly fair with improvement at New
York due mainly to broad spot interest by chain
buyers. Lamb moved well at all markets, chain
buyers the primary force on lamb at New York.
Pork loins were generally slow as demand for pork
centered on other cuts.

CHICAGO Compared to the previous Friday:
Good and Choice steer and heifer beef mostly 50#
higher, Standard steer steady, veal steady, lamb
steady to $1.00 higher, pork loins 8-168 steady,
Boston butts 4-8# 2.00-2.50 higher, spareribs
3# down steady.
Steer and heifer beef, lamb and fresh pork
supplies were normal, veal moderate. Good to
average-Choice carcasses represented the bulk
of beef, Prime relatively scarce. More 55-65+
lamb carcasses available than lighter weights.
Carcass beef trade was generally slow.
Demand for arm and squarecut chucks very narrow.
Supply of ribs short of a good demand in most
quarters as a minimum of forces was cut because
of the poor chuck movement. Demand was fair for
beef hindquarters, rounds and loins. Current
price levels on veal stimulated a moderate demand
ending a three-week period of lower prices during
which time declines of $5.00-7.00 were recorded
on most grades. Carcass lamb trade was moderately


active as were hindsaddles. Fore end cute
rather slow, but clearance was fairly com-
plete. Boston butts and spareribs moved well
into most channels, slow opening trade on
pork loins turned moderately active at the
close.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef trading was slow in California, steady.
In the Pacific Northwest both classes sold
moderately active, steer beef steady to $1.00
lower, decline on Standard and Good; heifer
beef mostly steady, occasional sales Choice
50# higher. Cow and bull beef met a poor
demand and trading was slow, 25-75'f lower in
California and steady to $1.00 lower in the
Portland-Seattle area. Calf was fairly
active, steady to 50 lower in Los Angeles.
At other points trading was slow on veal and
calf, but prices were unchanged. Spring lamb
trading was slow in San Francisco and Los
Angeles at $2.00 to $2.50 lower price levels.
Old crop lamb met a poor demand and sold
steady to 50 lower in Portland and Seattle.
Fresh pork cuts were slow throughout,
about steady in California, steady to $4.00
lower in the Pacific Northwest with the most
decline on loins and Boston butts. Cured
pork was also slow, mostly steady in all
areas.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

"HICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Although demand was only
moderate and trading on normal supplies of
steer and heifer beef was generally slow,
prices advanced. However, part of the week's
early advance was erased late, particularly
on Choice carcasses. Steer and heifer beef
sold steady to 500 higher with Good showing
the most advance. Cow beef was 50U-$1.00
higher. Clearance was complete on all
classes.
Supplies of carcass lamb were normal.
Demand was moderate and prices were strong
to $1.50 hiher, mostly around $1.00 higher.
Clearance was good.
Fully normal supplies of pork products
sold in an uneven trade. Loins were steady
to 500 lower, pork butts sold $1.50-2.50
higher. Fresh hams 12-14# were steady to 50#
lower with 14-16# weights steady to $1.00
higher. Pork carcasses sold steady to 300
lower at Philadelphia and New York. Clear-
ance was generally complete on pork products.
