MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Demand continued broad for fed cattle with
moderate supplies and higher wholesale meat
prices the major influencing factors. Slaugh-
ter steers sold strong to $1.00 higher, with
Choice and Prime grades generally showing the
most upturn. Slaughter heifers were steady to
500 higher. Slaughter cows sold steady to 500
lower, this the fifth consecutive week of de-
cline. Feeder cattle and calf demand was
broad and prices were steady to 500 higher.
Barrows and gilts sold 25-75# higher, while
sows were 2F-.l.00 higher. Slaughter lambs
closed the week steady to $1.00 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES The last full
week in July was featured by a continuation of
the higher price trend on slaughter steers and
heifers which has been in vogue all month. The
advance was accelerated, as marketing continued
moderate, average weights continued to run much
lighter than a year ago, and wholesale dressed
steer and heifer prices advanced sharply. In
the Chicago carlot beef trade, steer carcasses
reached the highest levels since early February.
At mid-west markets, slaughter steers finished
strong to $1.00 higher, kinds grading high-Good
and better weighing more than 1,100C in
best demand and generally 500 or more higher.
prices reached the highest levels since last
spring and average weights at some points were
the lightest in several years. Heifers gener-
ally steady to 50# higher, and as much as $1.00
up in Chicago. Heifers under 900# and
particularly under 850 slowest to sell.
The supply of cows increased and prices were
steady to 500 lower, bulls also steady to 500
lower. Vealers steady to $1.00 lower at major
small stock markets. The percentage of Prime
steers in Chicago increased slightly to 8 per-
cent, highest in nearly three months. At most
markets including Chicago, bulk of the steers
and heifers graded Good and Choice.
Slaughter steers: In Chicago eight loads
Prime 1200-1325# sold at $29.25-29.50, Choice
and mixed Choice and Prime 1150-1350# bulked at
. O7.00-29.00. At other markets, some high-Choice
and Prime $27.50-28.00, bulk Choice $25.50-
27.00, most Good grade 325.00-26.00 and Standard
down to $20.00.
Slaughter heifers: Choice heifers ?25.C00-
26.25, mixed Choice and Priu. reaching $27.00
at Chicago. Bulk Good grade Z22.00-24.75,
Standard down to $19.50."
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
$14.00-16.50, mostly ',.00 down. Canner and
Cutter largely $11.5 '-14.75 except increased
showing Canner down to S10.50 at southern Corn
Belt markets.

FEEDKR CATTLE AND CALVFS Receipts of feed-
er cattle and calves at terminal markets con-
tinued moderate as the month of July dre-' to a


close. Supplies at Kansas City and Wichita
were somewhat larger than in other recent weeks
but over-all marketing showed little evidence
as yet of the seasonal expansion in the move-
ment of cattle off grass to market. Good late
July pasture conditions coupled with the cur-
rent bullishness in the slaughter cattle market
slowed marketing from some of the more impor-
tant plains grazing areas where the movement in
prior years often was accelerated at this stage
of the grazing season. Over-all quality was
little different than the previous week. Medium
to average Choice grades predominated. Favora-
ble pasture conditions, abundant stockpiles of
grainfeeds and further substantial upturns in
slaughter cattle prices encouraged a good de-
mand and feeder classes sold steady to 500 high-
er. Feeder buyers displayed considerable
interest in fleshy cattle suitable for a short
turn in drylot and moderate numbers of partly
fattened, two-way steers were routed into feed-
er channels.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
largely $22.25-25.00; few loads Choice 800-900#
$25.25-25.75, one load Choice and Fancy 867#
,:5.90. At Sioux City 112 head Choice, 1077-
11944, grass steers brought $24.50-25.50. Good
and Choice 550-750# bulked $23.50-27.50, several
shipments Choice 567-617# $28.00. Medium and
mixed Medium and Good 550-750# chiefly $21.00-
24.50.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-700#
bulked $22.00-25.25; two loads fleshy 748#
included at $25.00.
Feeder calves: Good and Choice 300-550#
steers $26.00-30.50, high-Choice and Fancy
scarce but few around 4'0'C up to $31.95 and
small lot Choice 240# $36.00. Good and Choice
,nn-ci..- heifers $22.50-28.25.

HOGS Terminal markets Hog prices were
uniformly higher around the market circuit for
the third consecutive week. Packer and shipper
demand was very broad, particularly in the mid-
west. Barrows and gilts sold 25-75# higher,
mainly 50-75# up in the west. At several
markets the extreme top price was the highest
recorded in four years. Buyers aggressive for
consignments scaling under 200-t since these
kinds made up a seasonally large portion of the
receipts. Butchers over 25', were relatively
scarce. Sows were 25-Sl.CO( higher, excluding
St. Louis which was steady to 250 lower on
weights over 400N. In general hog receipts were
slightly increased at the twelve markets, but
at Cdicago the five-day supply was the smallest
in several years. Cows comprised between 8 and
27 percent of the receipts.
Barrows and eilts: U. S. 1-2, 190-240#
closed at 319.25-19.75, No. 1-3, 190-250S
$19.00-19.50, down to 128.50 and $18.75 at St.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic worsted
wool in the Boston market was very dull
but prices held firm. Woolen wools and
noils were also slow at unchanged rates.
There were only occasional sales of
medium grade fleece wools in the midwest.
Twelve months wools continued to be moved
in Texas at slightly higher prices while
sales in the territory States were ex-
tremely limited.
Auctions remained closed in Australia
and South Africa while crutchings were
slightly higher at Wanganui, New Zealand
with local mills active on good style and
the United States the main buyer of aver-
age style crutchings. Fleece wools were
slightly easier while there was keen
general competition for second shear wools
at slightly higher prices. Turnover at
Montevideo was very light while carpet
wool prices in Buenos Aires were reduced
due to a change in the rate of the peso.
Fleece Wools Graded 60/62s good
French combing and staple fleece wool sold
from $1.16-1.18 clean basis while graded
56/58s staple and good French brought
around $1.08-1.09 and graded 50/54s staple
fleeces moved around $1.07-1.08 clean.
Country graded medium fleece wools sold at
an estimated clean price of $1.04-1.05
delivered East.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good
French combing and staple territory wool
sold at $1.27 clean basis while original
bag fine and half-blood, with an edge of
three-eighths, brought $1.20-1.22 and
original bag half and three-eighths good
French combing and staple moved at $1.16-
1.18 clean.
Texas Wools A moderate volume of
Texas wools was moved this week around
$1.27-1.28 for average style wools, $1.30-
1.32 for good 12 months and up to 1.38
for choice original bag wools. There was
a little shearing of fall wool this week.
Mohair The mohair market was
dormant. A few small lots of spring
adult hair sold in Texas at 56 to the
warehouse. Shearing will be in full
swing in about two weeks in Texas. Trad-
ing on mohair at the local market was
very limited.
Foreign Wools The supply of spot
foreign wools was small but trade was
dull.


Greasy Montevideo Super Skirted
Wools were quoted as follows: 60/64s -
$1.04-1.06, 60s $1.01-1.05, 60/58s -
$.98-1.00, 58/56s 96-980, 56/50s -
950-970, and 50s 930-950.
Carpet Wools The carpet wool trade
was very slow. Greasy Buenos Aires Novem-
ber second clips were offered at 650-660,
March wools at 61-635 and 36/40s lambs
around 610 while greasy New Zealand "B"
style second shear wools were offered at
640, "BB" style at 65s and type 702/3
good crutchings around 580-590, all clean
wool fibers for shipment. A scoured
white Iceland carpet fleece was offered
at 760.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CA2LCT IfEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTEZRN SEABOARD Steer beef sold steady
to $2.00 higher with the major upswing at New
York. Cow beef was steady to mostly 50 lower;
veal steady to $1.00 lower; and calf prices at
New York fully $2.00 lower. fprirng lamb sold
steady to $2.00 lower, with New York and Phil-
adelphia showing full $1.00 decline; pork loins
steady to $3.00 higher, with upturns of $2.00-
3.00 at New York. Spareribs were steady to
$1.00 lower; fresh skinned hams and Boston
butts steady to $3.00 higher.
At New York, prices were 500-$1.50 higher
for kosher steer forequarters and mostly $1.00
lower for lamb. Kosher veal and calf fore-
saddles sold $1.00-2.00 lower than a week ago.
Early receipts normal in all divisions,
but only moderate late. Inshipments decreased
notably for steer beef and spring lamb. Trading
active for steer and heifer beef and pork on
all sessions, except pork was slow at close in
Baltimore. Demand for steer beef broadened
progressively at most markets and prices oLosed
at high for week. Advances of around $3.00-
4.00were scored on Choice chucks and hind-
quarters at New York. Clearance was good at
all points. Cow beef outlet was fair. Veal
movement only fair while at New York, calf met
very poor outlet. Some veal and calf was
unsold at Eastern markets. Spririn lamb outlet
in line with mostly moderate supplies, and
weakness permeated the week's business. Most
markets reported good movement of pork with
loins and fresh skinned hams the forerunners.

CHICAGO Steer beef sold $1.00-1.50
higher, heifer $1.00 higher, veal and spring
lamb $1.00 lower, pork loins 8-16# $35.00-4.00
higher, Boston butts 4-8# $1.00-1.50 higher,
spareribs 3# down steady.
Supplies of steer and heifer beef, veal
and spring lamb were moderate. Beef was
largely Good to average Choice, and bulk spring
lamb fell in the 35-E.'. range. Fresh pork
offerings below normal being rather small on
the initial session.
Carcass beef trade at the best time only
moderately active. In the early trade rounds
cleared fair; however, by mid-week all primal
cuts had adequate outlets with higher levels
established. The upward trend in beef influ-
enced to a large degree by substantially hi-her
replacement costs. All weights and grades of


veal sold in a moderately active trade but
closed slow. Spring lamb trade started fairly
active but slowed by Wednesday. Lamb loins
stews and shoulders were slow but legs and ribs
met fair demand. A slow opening fresh pork
trade became moderately active, loins working
higher each day, currently selling highest
since October 10, 1960.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold moderately active steady to 50f
higher other than heifer steady to $1.00 higher
in San Francisco. Cow beef was slow, steady to
$1.00 lower; bull beef about steady. Calf was
$1.00-2.00 lower in northern California, steady
to strong other areas. Spring lamb sold slow,
weak to :1.00 lower in the Pacific Northwest,
steady to strong in California except Good
grade mostly $2.00 lower in Los Angeles. Fresh
pork sold steady to $2.00 higher with tha most
advance on loins and spareribs. Cured pork was
steady to $1.00 lower in California except
sliced bacon and smoked picnics strong to $1.00
higher in San Francisco; all cured items steady
to $1.00 higher in the Pacific Northwest.
Near normal supplies all meats other than
Choice steer beef below normal.

fairly good,however, prices were largely 500
to $1.00 lower, some $1.50 lower at Omaha.

some larger than the previous week. Demand

LA'-B CROP, 1962

LAMB CROP DOWN 4 PERCENT

The 1962 lamb crop totaled 20, 358, 000 head, 4 percent less than the
21, 277, 000 lambs saved in 1961, but 2 percent above the 1951-60 average,
according to the Crop Reporting Board. This was the largest decline in
the lamb crop for any year since 1949. The 13 Western sheep States (11
Western States, South Dakota and Texas) produced 4 percent fewer lambs
in 1962 than a year earlier, but 6 percent more than average. The lamb
crop in the 35 Native sheep States (excludes 13 vVestern States) was 5
percent smaller than last year and 5 percent below average.

The number of breeding ewes 1 year old and older on farms and ranches
January 1, 1962 was down 4 percent from 1961, and ewe lambs under 1 year
old were 10 percent below January 1, 1961.

The lamb crop percentage (number of lambs saved per 100 ewes 1 year
old or older on farms and ranches January 1) this year at 94 percent was
I point below 1961, but the same as the 10-year average. The lambing per-
centage in both the Western and Native States was off 1 point from a year
earlier at 90 and 104 respectively.

WESTERN STATES

The 1962 lamb crop in the 13 Western States totaled 13, 430, 000 head--
4 percent below the 14, 020, 000 lambs saved in 1961, but 6 percent above
average. Breeding ewes one year old and older on farms and ranches
January 1, 1962 were down 3 percent from 1961. The number of early lambs
(dropped before March 15) in the Western States was 1 percent less than a
year earlier. In Texas, where approximately 15 percent of the Nation's
lambs are produced, the 1962 lamb crop was 6 percent below 1961, but 11
percent above average. The Texas lambing percentage at 75 compares with
79 a year ago and the average of 74. In the 13 Western States the lamb crop
was larger in 2 States and smaller in the remaining 11 States.

NATIVE STATES

The lamb crop at 6, 928, 000 head in the 35 Native sheep States was 5
percent below the 7, 257, 000 lambs saved in 1961 and 5 percent below average.
The smaller lamb crop resulted from a 4 percent drop in ewes and a I point
reduction in lambing percentage. In the 35 Native States the lamb crop was
smaller in 23 States, unchanged in 7 States, and larger in 5 States.
