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. Steers sold strong to 504 higher for
the week at most midwest markets and 254-$1.00
higher at Chicago. Slaughter heifers closed
steady to 500 higher, some 75# up at Chicago.
Slaughter cows were steady to 500 lower as cow
beef prices declined. Limited numbers of
feeder cattle and calves sold fully steady.
Barrows and gilts sold steady to 25# higher,
instances 500 up in the western Corn Belt, but
were steady to 500 lower in the eastern part
of the area. Sows were steady to 25# lower at
most points. Spring slaughter lambs closed
strong to $1.00 higher, 3arge share 500-$1.00
up.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steer and heifer prices advanced during the
short holiday trading week. Not since Christ-
mas week 1960 have twelve market receipts been
so small. The number of slaughter steers and
heifers sold out of first hands at the 7 mar-
kets totaled 93,901, smallest since April and
17 percent below a year ago. This development
coupled with higher dressed beef prices stimu-
lated trading on fed cattle. Slaughter steers
closed strong to 500 higher at most points, and
25f-$1.00 higher at Chicago. The Choice grade
led the advance at most markets. Closing
prices on heifers were generally steady to 500
higher, some 750 higher in Chicago. At the
same time, cows felt further downward pressure
and finished steady to 504 lower with Utility
and Commercial grades leading the decline.
Bulls were mostly steady, and vealers steady
to strong at St. Paul and St. Louis. Good and
Choice grades figured most prominently in abbre-
viated steer and heifer supplies, the percent-
age of Choice slightly increased. Only scat-
tered loads of steers weighed more than 1571''/.
While the percentage of cows in receipts was
slightly curtailed at most markets, a substan-
tial increase in supplies of western beef cows
was noted at St. Paul.
Slaughter steers: With closing prices at
the highpoint of the week in Chicago, Choice
steers bulked at F'2.C)0-27.00, weights under
11rn-4 largely $25.50-26.25, late sales high-
Choice and mixed Choice and Prime 1150-1400#
$26.75-28.00, most Good $23.00-25.00. At
other markets, Choice bulked at $24.50-25.50,
some high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime
A25.75-26.50, most Good $22.50-24.25.
Slaughter heifers: Scattered loads and
lots high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime
"25..n-25.75, bulk Choice $24.00-25.25, Good
and low-Choice $21.00-24.50.
Slaughter cows: Bulk Utility and Commer-
cial $14.50-16.50, Canner and Cutter largely
$12.50-15.50.


FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Marketing of
feeder cattle and calves continued relatively
limited with a midweek holiday tending to fur-
ther restrict the seasonally moderate movement.
A large percent of supplies consisted of average-
Medium to average-Choice offerings with many of
the shipments a mixture of Good and Choice
grades. Although the press of various types of
field work kept some potential buyers away from
market centers and thereby curtailed attendance
to some extent, demand continued fully adequate
to absorb the limited numbers on offer. Trading
generally was fairly active at fully steady
prices. Current slaughter cattle prices en-
couraged interest in fleshy cattle suitable to
go immediately into drylot and moderate numbers
of partly fattened offerings were purchased for
an additional turn in the feedlot. However, re-
latively few of these weighed over 1000#.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1000#
largely $22.00-25.00. At Sioux City two loads
Choice, partly fattened, 1032-1040# $23.75. Good
and Choice 550-750# ranged $22.50-27.00, in-
stances $27.50, few loads Choice 675-750# in-
cluded at $26.00-26.75. Medium and mixed Medium
and Good 550-750# sold from $18.50-24.00.
Feeder heifers: One shipment Choice 550#
$25.75 but high-Choice and Fancy scarce; major-
ity Good and Choice 525-700# $22.00-25.00;
limited number Medium and Good $18.00-21.50.
Feeder calves: Several loads Choice and
Fancy 332-550# steers $32.00; bulk Good and
Choice 300-550# $25.00-30.50, small lots Good
$24.00. Several loads Choice 462-476# included
at $30.25. Good and Choice 550-500# heifers
$22.00-28.00, sales at latter price included
one load 425#.

HOGS Terminal markets This week'
holiday shortened run at 242,000 head was 18
percent less than the previous week but about
the same as the corresponding week last year
which also included July 4. Most markets
received a seasonal increase of 180-210# barrows
and gilts. Throughout most of the area the
average weight of these classes dropped 2 to 5 .
Sows comprised between 8 percent of the
receipts at Kansas City to 28 percent at St.
Paul. At the outset, a sharp price break was
recorded at the major terminals. However, most
of these downturns were recovered Thursday when
the post-holiday receipts were substantially be-
low normal. A higher dressed pork trade was
another bullish factor.
Compared with the previous week's close,
barrows and gilts in the western part of the
Corn Belt were steady to 25# higher, extremes
25-500 higher at Sioux Falls. In the eastern
Corn Belt prices were steady to 25# lower, ex-
tremes 50 off at Indianapolis. Sows were
steady to 25# lower throughout the area, except
steady to 25# higher at Omaha.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts at the 12
markets totaled 51,000 head, compared with
70,000 a week earlier and 57,000 last year.
Demand was fairly good for the reduced volume
of slaughter lambs offered and this along with
price upturns on carlot dressed lamb served to
support advances on the live trade, particu-
I rly on post holiday trading. Compared with
the previous week's close, spring slaughter
lambs strong to f1.00 higher, large share 50-
el.. up. Slaughter eves and feeder lambs were


steady to 500 higher. Old-crop slaughter lambs
and yearlings were in short supply, fully

slow but prices were about steady. There was
increased inquiry for feeder cattle and calves

verted attention from marketing of cattle.

calves weak to 500 lower. The limited volume
of spring slaughter lambs sold steady.

COLORADO, SOUTHERN WY01?-ING, WESTERN KANSAS
AND WESTERN NEBRASKA Trading direct at feed-
lots on slaughter steers and heifers fairly
active. Steers strong to 500 higher, heifers
strong to 250 higher. Sharp price advances in
the carcass beef trade prompted active trade
and higher price levels on steers and heifers.
Sales volume slaughter heifers continued rather
moderate due principally to the comparatively
small supply of this class in the area which
have necessary weight and finish to meet
present demand in dressed trade.

terests participated. Improved demand for beef

of past couple of weeks. Veal and calf moder-
ately active under rr.cstl' fair demand. Spring

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading of greasy domestic worsted
wools in the Boston market was practically
at a standstill during the July 4 holiday
week. Some of the worsted mills and many
of the woolen wool mills were closed for
the annual vacation period. This provided
an opportunity to take inventory and repair
machinery. Occasional small lots of
woolen wools and noils sold steady.
Cabled reports from Australia showed
a poor selection of combing wools offered
with prices steady to firm with Japan and
Continental buyers dominating. There were
limited stocks available on offer in the
hands of South African shippers at firm
prices, with little interest noted in the
local market. Trading in South America was
at a standstill.
The Crop Reporting Board of the
United States Department of Agriculture
announced the average price received by
farmers for wool on June 15, 1962 was
