MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steer and heifer prices advanced
following four weeks of lower trends. Steers
were strong to $1.00 higher, heifers 25-750
up. Slaughter cows sold steady to 500 higher.
Feeder cattle and calves were steady to 500
higher. Late advances on barrows and gilts
more than offset early declines and the week's
trend was steady to 250 higher. Sows were
steady to 254 higher at most points. Slaughter
lambs were steady to $1.00 higher for the week.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Prices ad-
vanced on slaughter steers and heifers following
a lower trend for four weeks which had dropped
price levels on Good to Prime offerings to a
1962 low. Sharply curtailed receipts early in
the week, and substantially higher wholesale
dressed beef prices turned the trend in the
cattle market. But while supplies were small
Monday, comparatively liberal receipts Tuesday
and Thursday boosted the 12 market supply to
185,000 during the holiday shortened week, and
the week's volume of slaughter steers and
heifers at the seven markets exceeded both the
previous week and a year ago.
Though early upturns at some markets were
shaded in a liberally supplied post-holiday
trade, slaughter steers were still strong to
$1.00 higher, mostly strong to 500 higher than
late in the preceding week. Heifers were
mostly 25-750 higher, with cows and bulls
generally steady to 500 higher. Vealers sold
steady to $2.00 lower at important markets for
this class of stock. The percentage of cows
and feeder cattle in receipts was curtailed,
largely due to generous rainfall in production
areas. Slaughter steers and heifers formed the
bulk of supplies at most midwest markets and
the majority graded Good and Choice. The 5
percent Prime steers in Chicago the smallest
for any week since mid-March. -
Slaughter steers: Several loads Prime
1325-1375# steers in Chicago $28.35-28.75,
nothing above $28.25 late, with week's bulk
high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime 1125-
1375# $26.50-27.75. Choice steers in Chicago
largely $24.75-26.50. Elsewhere in the midwest,
Choice steers bulked at $24.00-25.75, small
volume high-Choice and Prime $26.00-26.50; bulk
Good $22.00-24.50.
Slaughter heifers: Few loads high-Choice
and mixed Choice and Prime heifers $26.00-26.35,
the latter price for a load 308i in Omaha. Bulk
Choice $23.75-25.75, Good largely $21.75-24.25.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Comnercial
$14.25-17.50, Canner and Gutter largely $12.00-
15.00.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
were somewhat smaller than the very moderate
numbers marketed the previous week. A holiday


at mid-week as well as wheat harvesting activ-
ities in some western and southwestern areas
were factors tending to further curtail the
seasonally moderated movement. A fairly large
percent of supplies consisted of Good and
Choice offerings but relatively few high-
Choice and Fancy grades were included. Me-
dium and low-Good grades comprised a moderate
percent of the over-all supply. Slaughter
cattle prices worked materially higher during
the forepart of the current week and this
tended to encourage more aggressive demand
for feeders. As a result, prices on the rel-
atively limited numbers available ruled steady
to 500 higher with trading fairly active at
most all markets.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-
1000# largely $21.50-24.50; few shipments
Choice 800-850# $25.00-25.50 and at Sioux
Falls four loads Choice 800# $26.00. Very
few steers over 1000# moved into feeder chan-
nels during the week. Several loads Choice
515-550i $28.50-29.00; bulk Good and Choice
550-750,4 $22.50-28.00, loadlots 550-600# at
$24.50-25.50 usually a mixture of Good and
Choice. Medium and mixed Medium and Good
550-750# $18.00-23.50.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-
700# $21.50-26.25, most sales $25.00 down.
Feeder calves: Supplies in this division
were relatively small but several loads Choice
350-47&f steers $30.00-31.00, part load Choice
341# $31.10. Other 350-550# steers of Good
and Choice grades brought $24.00-29.75. Good
and Choice 350-500# heifers $22.00-28.00. Not
many heifers were of a kind to exceed $27.00
bdt one load of Choice and Fancy 414# sold
at $28.25.

HOGS Terminal Markets The week's
holiday shortened run at the 12 markets to-
taled 267,000, or 19 percent less than the
preceding week, and 3 percent short of the
corresponding Memorial Day week a year ago.
Barrows and gilts declined early in the week
when supplies were in normal proportions.
However, supplies were moderate following the
holiday and prices advanced making the trend
for the week steady to 250 higher. Sows were
steady to 250 higher, excluding St. Paul and
Sioux Falls where sales were steady to 250
lower. Sows comprised L percent of the 8
market total, making up 22 percent at St.
Paul.
Barrows and gilts: Late sales, U. S.
1-2, 190-a40f $16.00-16.50 in the western
part of the Corn Belt. In the eastern part
of the area, No. 1-2, 190-240'1 $16.35-17.00.
No. 1-3, 190-250# $15.50-16.00 in the west
and $15.75-16.75 in the east.
Sows: No. 1-3, 270-400# $13.25-14.00,
moderate volume $14.25-14.50 mostly in the








eastern part of the area. No. 2-3, 400-6001
$12.25-13.25, up to $13.50-153.75 in the eastern
part of the Corn Belt.
Steady prices prevailed on teeder pigs
at St. Paul and Sioux City. Choice 120-16,0/
brought ;15.00-15.50 at St. Paul; Good and
Choice 1530-170.C at Sioux City $14.00-15.00.
Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area receipts totaled 267,000 compared with
317,000 the preceding week and 284,000 in the
holiday shortened period a year ago. U. S.
1-3, 200-25b0 barrows and gilts made up the
bulk of offerings. Sows comprised about 9 per-
cent of receipts. The holiday influence made
for some unevenness in trade conditions but
on the whole demand was fairly good. Prices
declined on Monday but strengthened later to
leave prices mostly steady for the week.
Barrows and gilts: On Friday, U. S. 1-3,
200-235,'. sold from $15.00-15.65, most No. 1-2,

88,80Yi head compared with 94,300 the preced-
ing week and 80,300 a year earlier. Demand
was fair particularly late when early declines
were recovered. Barrows and gilts closed
steady to 251 higher for the week, sows steady
to 251 lower.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Salable receipts at the
12 markets totaled 75,000 head, compared with
100,000 the previous week and 80,000 during
the corresponding holiday week last year. Cur-
tailment of receipts, partially due to the
holiday at mid-week, and steady to $1.00 higher
dressed lamb prices, were factors yielding -
support to the live lamb market. The general
trend on slaughter lambs was steady to $1.00
higher. Slaughter ewes sold mainly steady,
but 500 lower at St. Paul and 500-$1.00 lower
at Denver. Feeder lamb sales were generally

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Supplies of greasy domestic combing wools in
Boston were small with prices steady. Scoured
woolen wools and noils were limited to small lots
selling at about unchanged rates.
Occasional lots of wool sold in the terri-
tory States while topmakers and mills were wait-
ing for June shearing to commence in Montana,
Wyoming and South Dakota. Most 8 months wools
were cleaned up in Texas while 12 months original
bag wools were bought daily. Shearing again was
delayed in parts of the fleece wool States due
to heavy rains and threat of flood waters.
Cabled reports from Australia showed a poor
selection of free wools with prices firm at
Sydney with Japan and the Continent dominating
the trade. At Geelong there was a good selection
of comeback and crossbred wools sold steady but
a poor selection of merino with Eastern Europe
and Japan active. The New Zealand market was
firm on fleece wools while second shear wools
were slightly lower under good general competi-
tion-with all sections operating. The market
was very firm in South Africa. The South Ameri-
can markets were rather quiet, quotations steady
in Montevideo and weaker in Buenos Aires.
Fleece Wools Medium grade staple and good
French, including baby combing, sold $1.07 clean
basis on a core test. Pennsylvania wool pool
sales this week follow: Armstrong County Pool
16,000wi bulk medium 58.68#, Clarion County Pool
16,000f bulk medium 58.750 grease basis, f.o.b.
Country- buyers were paying from 48-544 but mostly
51-52# grease basis to the growers for medium
fleece wools. Fine and half-blood wool was esti-
mated to cost around $1.16-1.17 clean basis,
delivered East. Graded low quarter-blood staple
fleece wool was estimated around $1.01 clean
basis, delivered East.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good French
combing and staple wool sold around $1.26 clean
basis. Range sales follow: Colorado 120,000#
graded 64s good French combing and staple $1.22
clean basis, delivered East. Approximately

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD lIuring the Memorial
Holiday week steer carcass prices were steady
to ,;.1.00 higher, the upturn recorded at New York
and Philadelphia. Cow beef sold steady to 25#
off, veal steady to $2.00 lower, most sales
$1.00 off. Lamb prices were largely steady to
$1.00 higher, pork loins strong to $2.00 higher,
but at Baltimore prices were $1.00-2.00 lower.
Boston butts strong to -1.00 higher; spareribts
steady to $2.00 up; fresh skinned hams weak to
$2.00 lower.
Prices were steady for kosher dressed steer
forequarters, however, veal and calf sold $1.00-
2.00 lower. Prices were fully steady for old
crop lamb, while kosher spring lamb foresaddles
were $1.00-2.00 higher.
Receipts of steer beef were near normal and
supplies were moderate for other meats. Steer
beef and lamb trade was moderately active and
buyers were mainly aggressive for steer hind-
quarters, loins and arm chucks. Outlet was good
for veal, and at New York some chain buyers were
very active for veal carcasses weighing OC-L9Cu:.
Active trading prevailed for most pork, however,
fresh skinned hams were slow on all sessions.
Clearances were generally complete for all
classes of fresh meats along the Eastern Sea-
board.

CHICAGO Steer beef 50-$l. 00 higher,
heifer fully 500 higher, veal steady, lamb
mostly $1.00 lower, pork loins 8-16# $1.00-2.00
higher, Boston butts 4- = 0S higher, spareribs
3F down steady.
Steer and heifer beef and fresh pork ap-
peared in normal volume, veal and lamb tonnage
only moderate, with lamb most plentiful at the
outset. High-Good and Choice grades predomi-
nated in the beef division.
Carcass beef trade slow early on the open-
ing session but moderately active thereafter.
Arm and squarecut chucks, rounds and loins met
a good demand, with chucks and rounds working
higher. Loins held steady with prices the high-
est of the year. Most quarters reported a
moderately active rib trade till late when
action slowed and a somewhat weaker undertone
prevailed. Moderate demand for veal cleared
supply on hand. Lamb trade slow with the first
lower market recorded in four weeks. Lamb loins
and ribs moved very well into all channels while
on the other hand legs, stews and shoulders were
hard to sell, particularly legs. Spareribs con-


tinued in good demand, pork loins and butts
turning moderately active after a slow start.

PACIFIC COAST A mildly bullish price
trend featured California trading but the
Pacific Northwest developed a steady to
easier pattern. Steer and heifer beef sold
at steady to $1.00 higher prices in Cali-
fornia, the most advance in San Francisco,
but steady to weak in Portland and Seattle.
Cow beef was mostly steady except firm to 50S
higher in Southern California. Calf and veal
was steady except calf active and firm to
$2.00 higher in Los Angeles. Spring lamb was
steady in California, but weak to $1.50 lower
in Portland and steady to $1.00 higher in
Seattle. An irregular trend on pork featured
$2.00-3.00 higher prices on spareribs, mostly
$1.00-2.00 higher on loins, firm to $1.00
higher on other items in Los Angeles; mostly
steady prices on pork in San Francisco and
steady to $1.00 lower in the Northwest. Holi-
day week supplies of most classes were moder-
ate other than for rather small offerings of
calf in Southern California. Trade was
moderate to fairly active except for slowness
on spring lamb at Portland.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PFEHL.ELPHIA Supplies of steer and heifer
beef were near normal in spite of the holiday
shortened week. Demand was fairly good and
prices advanced on steer and heifer beef.
Part of the early advance was lost in the late
week trading. Steer and heifer beef sold
mainly from 500-$1.00 higher but $1.50-2.00
higher in eastern centers. Cow beef was
mostly 50 -$1..CC higher. Clearance was
generally good on all beef classes.
Demand was moderate for below normal
offering of carcass lamb. Old crop lamb sold
steady to 750 higher with prices strong to
$2.50 higher at Denver with most advance on
carcasses under 5-. Spring lamb was strong
to mostly $1.00 higher. Good clearance on
lamb.
Demand was moderate for normal supplies
of pork products. Pork loins sold $1.00-1.50
higher, pork butts were steady to 500 higher
and fresh hams sold steady to 75# lower. Pork
carcasses sold 500-$1.00 lower at New York
and Philadelphia. Clearance was generally
complete on pork products.
