MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Curtailed marketing of slaughter steers
and heifers coupled with upturns in the dressed
trade contributed to higher steer and heifer
prices. The number of slaughter steers and
heifers sold out of first hands at the seven
markets totaled 95,30 head, the smallest for
any week barring holidays since early April and
16,000 smaller than a year ago. Slaughter
steers and heifers closed the week steady to
75# higher. Slaughter cows were weak to 500
lower as cow beef prices declined. Feeder
cattle and calves in brisk trading sold steady
to 500 higher. Barrows and gilts as well as
sows sold steady to 50f higher for the week.
Spring slaughter lambs were generally steady to
50# lower aside from 25-501 advance at Denver.

SIAUGHTRZR CATTLE AND CALVES Prices for
slaughter steers and heifers advanced for the
third week in a row, while prices for cows de-
clined for the third consecutive week. The
continuation of this trend carried Choice
steers in Chicago to the highest level in more
than two months, while cows sold at a low since
early February. Slaughter steers and heifers
for the week sold steady to 751 higher, steers
mostly 25-75# higher and heifers strong to 500
higher. An even distribution of receipts,
which were reduced nearly 8 percent from last
week, and higher wholesale prices for dressed
steer and heifer beef kept the current advance
in fed cattle prices alive. Around 8 percent
of the steers marketed in Chicago graded Prime,
most for any week in more than two months. How-
ever, the majority of steers and heifers
offered at midwest markets graded Good and
Choice, and average weights of both classes
still considerably lighter than a year ago. A
further seasonal increase in the percentage of
cows in receipts, and lower cow beef prices were
responsible for further downturns in cow prices,
cows selling weak to 501 lower at most points.
Pulls sold weak to 50# lower but vealers steady
to strong at E. St. Louis and St. Paul, the two
leading small stock markets.
Slaughter steers: Three loads mostly Prime

than four weeks, with fully 15 loads mixed high-
Choice and Prime I",.-13"<' $28.25 and bulk

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
fell somewhat short of the very moderate numbers
marketed the previous week. Medium to average
Choice grades predominated. At several midwest
markets supplies included moderate numbers of
partly fattened,800-1000# two-way cattle but
strictly green two-year-old feeders continued
scarce. Pasture conditions as a whole were
above average for mid-July which of course has
deferred the start of a volume summer movement
of all ages of cattle from range and pasture to
market. In addition, widespread activity in
contracting cattle at country points has ab-
sorbed a fairly large percent of the cattle
currently being sold off the grass. Trading at
the terminals during the week under review was
brisk with prices unevenly steady to 50f higher.
All classes shared in the stronger trend. A
material upturn in slaughter cattle prices was
a decided factor encouraging a more aggressive
demand.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-10504
$22.00-25.00; Choice 380! included at $25.00;
few Choice 800-RE'- $25.25-25.50. Good and
Choice 550-750s bulked $23.00-27.00, few loads
$27.25-28.50, including load Choice, green, 637#,
So. Dakotas at P25.50 and Choice 678i ;.27.25.

mixed Medium and Good 550-7501 largely $20.00-

Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-700#

ceed $25.00. Choice 740# brought 23.00.

HOGS Terminal markets The twelve market
hog supplies were the smallest for any five-day
period since last August. This run estimated at
258,000 head was 15 percent less than last week
and practically the same as the corresponding
week a year ago. The combination of moderate
receipts and an improved dressed pork outlet in-
fluenced higher hog prices. Barrows and gilts
were steady to -"'4 higher, mainly 500 higher in
the western Corn Belt area where receipts were
sharply reduced. Sioux City and Kansas City
were E0'/-r1.00 higher, while St. Louis was only
steady to strong. In general sows were 25-50f
higher, extremes $1.00 higher at Sioux City and
Sioux Falls. This class comprised only 8 per-
cent of the receipts at Kansas City, and as much
as 30 perapnt of the'run at Sioux Falls. The
average weight of barrows and gilts dropped
2-3d at most markets since there was a seasonal
increase of new crop 10O-200- averages.

and gilts was 92# per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago,
July 12 to July 18, 1962, inclusive.
Interior Iowa-Southern Yinnesota receipts
totaled 264,000 compared with 276,000 the
preceding week and 25e,000 a year earlier. Bulk
of barrows and gilts consisted of 2- "-25"'
weights, although the proportion under f,':,
expanded somewhat. Sows made up 17 percent of
receipts. Prices for barrows and gilts as well
as sows advanced 25# to 35# with good shipping
demand and small seasonal supplies being the
main stimulating influence.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the twelve
markets totaled 65,000 head, compared with
86,000 the previous week and 74,000 last
year. Supplies were the smallest for any full
week in two years. Counterpctine the influence
of small receipts upon live prices was a
lagging demand and fl.00-2.00 price decline in
the dressed lamb market. Compared with previous
week's close spring slaughter lambs sold steady
to 5,n lower with Utility and Good grades un-
der most pressure and some as much as 1,00
lower. Denver was an exception and spring
lambs sold 25-50# higher. Slaughter ewes were
steady to 50# higher, however,Fort Worth was
?5-_"t lower. The limited feeder lamb supply
sold nainly steady.

Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area
sheep and lamb receipts totaled 12,800 head,
compared with 15,300 the previous week and
12,800 a year ago. Despite smaller receipts
demand was rather narrow influenced by lower
dressed lamb prices. Compared with previous
Friday spring slaughter lambs were weak to 500
lower; slaughter ewes steady. Old-crop slaugh-
ter lambs scarce.
Spring slaughter lambs: Choice and Prime

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass prices
were steady to 500 higher; cow beef mostly steady,
however, the trend was 500 to $1.00 lower at
Baltimore. Veal prices largely steady, but some
lots were $1.00 up at New York. Lamb $1.00 and
$2.00 lower. Pork loins sold steady to $2.00
higher at Philadelphia and Baltimore, but weak
to $1.00 lower at other centers. Fresh skinned
hams held steady; Boston butts steady to $1.00
lower; spareribs steady to $2.00 off.
Prices were strong to $1.00 higher for
kosher dressed steer forequarters, and downturns
of $2.00-4.00 were recorded for lamb. Quotations
for kosher veal and calf were unchanged from a
week ago.
Supplies of red meats were moderate to
mostly normal, however, volume of pork at New
York was conservative. Steer beef carcasses and
cuts moved slow at Washington, while trading was
moderately active at other markets. Outlet was
fair for cow beef, veal and calf. Lamb trade
only fairly active at best for cuts, but demand
was poor for carcasses. Along the Eastern Sea-
board retailers were moderately aggressive for
pork. Clearance was complete on bulk fresh meats,
however small volume of steer beef unsold at
Washington, and some lots of lamb carried at all
market centers.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold 500-
$1.00 higher, veal steady to $1.00 higher, spring
lamb $1.00 lower, and fresh pork cuts steady.
Moderate supply all classes fresh meat
proved sufficient to satisfy trade needs. Good
to average-Choice quality most plentiful in beef.
Carcass beef trade moderately active, up-
ward trend credited to higher costs at replace-
ment level. In early trade all primal cuts
cleared well but arm and squarecut chucks and
loins slowed as the week progressed. Rounds most
wanted beef item. All grades and weights of veal
sold in a moderately active trade. Demand fair
for spring lamb through Wednesday but narrowing
somewhat at the close. Lamb legs, stews, shoul-
ders and ribs absorbed in most channels, loins
slow. Fairly broad outlets for Boston butts and
spareribs. Pork loins started slowly but im-
proved by midweek.


PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef active, steady to mostly 50 higher,
instances $1.00 higher in San Francisco.
Cow and bull beef moderately active, steady
to 500 lower. Spring lamb fairly active,
mostly steady, occasionally $1.00 lower in
Portland. Calf steady. Fresh and cured
pork uneven.
Short supply of carcass beef and fresh
pork loins in Southern California, near
normal offerings elsewhere and other meats
about in line with current demand.


CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DEIVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Steer and heifer beef supplies
were below normal levels but trading only
moderately active. The general price ad-
vances were a result of higher live costs
on slaughter steers and heifers rather than
improved demand for the dressed products.
Steer beef sold 500 to $1.00 higher and
heifer beef was steady to $1.00 higher,
however, there was a weak undertone late.
Cow beef prices declined for the third
straight week under narrow demand. Cow beef
closed steady to $2.00 lower. Clearance was
complete on all classes.
Carcass lamb supplies continued below
normal seasonal levels, but prices declined
at most wholesale centers as demand was only
fair at best. Spring lamb sold steady to
$2.50 lower, mostly $1.00-2.00 lower. Clear-
ance was generally complete.
Pork supplies moved in a very brisk
trade as demand was broad for nearly all
products. Supplies were sharply curtailed
from the previous week. Most prices ranged
steady to higher with the exception of pork
sides which were uneven at some Eastern
markets. Pork loins were steady to $1.50
higher with 12-16# weights showing the great-
est advance. Pork butts sold steady to 500
up and bellies and spareribs closed steady
at Chicago. Fresh hams were $1.00-2.50 high-
er. Pork carcasses advanced 500 at New York
but were steady to 500 off at Philadelphia.
Clearance was broad on all classes.

CALF CROP, 1962


CALF CROP UP 2 PERCENT
A calf crop of 40,542,000 head is expected for 1962, according to the Crop
Reporting Board. This is 2 percent larger than both the 1961 calf crop and the
1951-60 average; and the largest since 1956.
The larger calf crop this year is the result of more cows and heifers on farms.
Cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1962 totaled 47,326,000 head, up
2 percent from the 46,370,000 head on January 1, 1961.
The number of calves born and expected to be born this year expressed as a
percentage of cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1 is 86 percent,
the same as both 1961 and the 10-year average. This percentage is not strictly
a calving rate, since the January 1 inventory of cows and heifers 2 years old
and older does not include all heifers which give birth to calves during the
year and includes some cows that die or are slaughtered before calving. This per-
centage is calculated to show trend in productivity over a period of time and may
fluctuate from year to year due to variation in cow slaughter and trends in breeding
herd replacement.
NORTH CENTRAL STATES
In the East North Central region all States except Illinois show a smaller calf
crop for 1962 than in 1961. Ohio is down 2 percent and Indiana, Michigan and
Wisconsin are each 1 percent below a year earlier.
All States in the West North Central region expect larger calf crops this year.
Kansas, up 4 percent, shows the largest increase in this region, followed by
Missouri, up 3 percent and South Dakota and Nebraska each 2 percent higher. Iowa
and North Dakota expect calf crops 1 percent above last year, while Minnesota is up
slightly.
SOUTHERN STATES
In the South Atlantic region slightly larger calf crops are indicated in all
States except Maryland, down 2 percent and Delaware unchanged. The largest in-
creases are in Florida, up 5 percent aer South Carolina, up 3 percent.
Every State in the South Central region expects a larger calf crop in 1962
except Louisiana which is unchanged. Texas, Oklahoma, and Kentucky, the largest
cattle States in this area, are up 2 percent, 6 percent, and 5 percent, respectively
WESTERN STATES
The 1962 calf crop in the Western States is expected to be larger in 8 States,
smaller in Montana and Arizona, and unchanged in Oregon. New Mexico shows the big-
gest gain, increasing 5 percent while Colorado and Nevada are both up 3 percent.
California, the largest cattle State in the West indicates a 2 percent larger calf
crop.
NORTH ATLANTIC STATES
In this region, all States expect the 1962 calf crop to be unchanged from 1961
except New Jersey, down 3 percent, and Pennsylvania off 1 percent..

CATTLE AND CALVES ON FEED, JULY 1, 1962

CATTLE ON FEED 4 PERCENT HIGHER On July 1, there were 6,040,000 head of cattle and calves on feed
for slaughter market in the 26 major feeding States, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This number
was 4 percent above the 5,822,000 head on feed in these States July 1 last year, but down seasonally
from the 7,189,000 head on feed April 1 this year. The decline in number on feed from April 1 to July 1
was 16 percent this year compared with an 18 percent decline for this period a year earlier.
Most of the increase in cattle and calves on feed over a year earlier occurred in those weighing
less than 700 pounds.
NORTH CENTRAL STATES DOWN 2 PERCENT A total of 5,877,000 head of cattle and calves were on feed
July 1 for slaughter market in the North Central States--2 percent below the 3,963,000 head on feed a
year earlier. Iowa, the leading State, was unchanged, but Illinois decreased 7 percent and Nebraska
was down slightly from July 1 last year. Kansas, South Dakota, and Michigan were the only States in
this region showing increases in cattle feeding.
WESTERN STATES UP 18 PERCENT There were 1,851,000 head of cattle and calves on feed for slaugh-
ter market as of July 1 in the 11 Western States--18 percent more than on July 1, 1961. The three rank-
ing States in this region were all higher than a year ?arlier--California was up 23 percent, Colorado
was up 8 percent, and Arizona showed a 35 percent increase. Only three States in this region, Montana,
Wyoming, and Nevada, were lower than a year earlier.
OTHER STATES Cattle feeding States in other regions showed the following changes from July 1
last year: Pennsylvania was down 9 percent, Texas was up 18 percent, and Oklahoma was unchanged.
PLACEMENTS UP 8 PERCENT--MARKETINGS UP 2 PERCENT Cattle and calves placed on feed April through
June this year in the 26 States totaled 2,446,000 head, 8 percent above the same period in 1961. Ship-
ments of stocker and feeder cattle into 8 Corn Belt States, for which data are available, were 20 per-
cent higher during April and May this year than for the same two months in 1961.
Marketings of fed cattle for slaughter from the 26 States during April through June amounted to
3,595,0nV head--2 percent more than for this period last year.
Beef steers and heifers (grading prime, choice, and good) sold out of first hands for slaughter at
12 livestock markets during April, May, and June were down 6 percent from the same period a year ago.
These data do not include direct sales to packing plants, mixed lots of steers and heifers, and some
deliveries bought on prior contracts.
WEIGHT OF CATTLE ON FEED A breakdown of the July 1 number on feed in the 26 States by weight
groups shows increases over a v~ar earlier in all groups except the 1,100 pounds and over group. Those
weighing under 500 pounds totaled 257,000 head, up 36 percent from a year earlier; the 500-699 pound
group totaled 1,424,000 head, up 26 percent; the 700-899 and 900-1,099 pound groups were both up 1
percent with 2,659,000 and 1,375,000 head respectively. The number on feed weighing 1,100 pounds and
over totaled 345,n00 head, a decrease of 35 percent from a year earlier.
KINDS ON FEED In the 26 States, the number of steers and steer calves, at 4,277,000 head, ex-
ceeded the 4,118,0O0 head July 1 last year by 4 percent. Heifers and heifer calves totaled 1,732,000
head, also up 4 percent from the 1,673,000 on feed a year earlier. Cows and others on feed, at 31,000
head, were unchanged from a year ago.
TIME ON FEED In the 26 States, the number on feed under 3 months, at 2,347,000 head, was up 9
percent from a year earlier. The 3 to 6 months group totaled 2,037,000 head, an increase of 8 percent
froir last year. At 1,656,000 head, the number on feed over 6 months showed a 7 percent decline from
July 1, 1961.
MARKETING INTENTIONS Cattle feeders in the 26 States indicate that they intend to market 55 per-
cent or 3,330,0nn head of the July 1 inventory during July, August, and September. If intentions are
carried out, marketing would be nearly equal to the 3,339,000 head marketed during the third quarter
last year from the July 1 inventory. A breakdown by months of anticipated marketing of the July 1
inventory during the quarter shows 31 percent to be marketed in July, 33 percent in August and 36 per-
cent in September. Expected marketing as published are based upon the usual relationship between sur-
vey data and actual marketing.
