RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Despite fairly liberal receipts on Monday,
curtailed movement later in the week left the
volume of slaughter steers at the 7 markets
smallest for any non-holiday week this year and
18 percent below a year ago. The general trend
on slaughter steers was steady to 750 higher
with most upturn on Choice and Prime offerings
weighing above l15,r'. Exceptions at Kansas
City and St. Joseph where sales were 25-50#
lower. Heifers sold steady to 50# higher aside
from the steady to 500 lower trends at St.
Joseph, Omaha and Kansas City. Slaughter cows
were steady to 500 higher. Feeder cattle and
calves closed generally steady. Barrows and
gilts were 25#-$1.00 lower, sows steady to 25#
lower. Spring slaughter lambs were steady to
500 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES A fairly
liberal supply of cattle moved to market on
Monday and prices declined, interrupting the
recent upward price movement. However, re-
ceipts were curtailed later in the week and
prices once again continued to advance. Supply
at terminal markets consisted mostly of slaugh-
ter steers and heifers with a large share of
the steers weighing under 1100Q. The average
weight of slaughter steers at the 7 markets was
)IC40 compared with 1087# the previous week and
I 1364 a year earlier. The average price at
these centers at $26.05 was $2.56 above a year
ago.
Choice and Prime slaughter steers weighing
over 115C? were in broad demand and sold 25-750
higher. Other grades were steady to 500 higher.
However, sales at Kansas City and St. Joseph
were 25-500 lower. Sales at these two centers
along with Omaha were steady to 50f lower on
heifers while the trend at other markets was
steady to 500 higher. Cows and bulls generally
steady to 500 higher. Vealers $1.00-2.00 high-
er at both St. Louis and St. Paul.
Slaughter steers: Four loads Prime 1250-
1550Q at Chicago Friday $30.25, high-Choice
and Prime 1200-13508 $29.25-30.00 with bulk

terminals high-Choice and Prime $28.00-28.75,
Choice $26.00-27.75, Good $23.00-26.00.

16.50, Canner and Cutter $12.25-15.00.

F7 DFR CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
showed further slight expansion but even so were
very moderate for August. Relatively high price
levels have influenced some graziers to start
marketing cattle the past two weeks rather than


wait for additional weight gains. However,
generally good pasture conditions have influ-
enced many growers to defer the start of their
movement from pasture to market. According to
the Crop Reporting Board, western ranges and
pastures as a whole are providing the best
summer grazing since 1958. The good demand
which has characterized trading throughout the
summer continued unabated, however, buyer demand
often was tempered by a more cautious attitude
in the face of the price levels reached as a re-
sult of the consistently higher price trend
which prevailed during the past two and a half
months. Consequently, both the degree of trad-
ing activity and price trends showed considera-
ble unevenness at the different markets. Prices
often were maintained on a steady basis but at
Sioux City were steady to weak and at Kansas
City were weak to 500 lower. In contrast sales
at Sioux Falls were steady to $1.00 higher. At
Oklahoma City prices were steady to 500 higher
except on steer calves which sold weak to 500
lower.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#,
including some partly fattened offerings, $22.50-

HOGS Terminal markets Barrows and gilts
sold 250-$1.00 lower, this the first general de-
cline since May and the sharpest downturn for
any week since January. An increased percentage
of butchers weighing under 210/ met rather poor
demand and showed the most decline at several
markets. Lower pork prices contributed to the
general downturn. Sows were steady to 25# lower
at most points. Receipts at the 12 markets

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT IE.AT TR DE REVTIEf

EASTEPN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
mostly steady along the seaboard. Cow beef sold
steady to -1.00 higher. Veal and calf was mostly
steady, but advanced fully $1.00 at Philadelphia
and Washington. -prin,- lamb sold steady to $2.00
higher. Pork loins were $1.00-5.00 lower, the
majority at New York $3.00-5.00 lower; other
pork cuts steady to $2.00 higher aside from
$1.00 lower prices for spareribs at Philadelphia.
Kosher dressed meats mostly unchanged for
steer beef, veal, calf and spring lamb.
Supplies of beef were mostly normal and
other fresh meat classes moderate to normal.
Carcass meat outlet was generally limited during
the current week as most beef cleared in form
of primal cuts. Demand was fair to broad for
hinds, rounds and partici' 'rl: ribs, while loins
showed improvement at New York where resort
buyers were active. Hinds moved slow at Phila-
delphia. Turnover of veal and calf was rather
slow but Choice and Prime offerings were scarce.
Demand for spring lamb was mostly moderate with
carcasses and cuts fairly well balanced. Pork
loin prices declined sharply under generally
poor demand. movement of other pork cuts was
only fair.

CHICAGO Steer beef steady to 504 higher,
heifer fully steady, veal mostly S1.00 higher,
srin*- lamb '7, to $1.00 higher, pork loins
$3.50-4.00 lower, Boston butts 4-- steady,
spareribs ? and down $1.00 lower.
All classes fresh meat continued in moder-
ate supply. Beef in the main Good to average-
Choice, weights under "'I most plentiful.
Spring lamb largely 35- -.
Carcass beef trade rather limited as most
buyers purchased primal cuts. Rounds declined
in a slow trade but chucks, loins and ribs moved
well. Supply of heavier ribs and loins was
below normal, consequently ribs over fh-= sold
for the same price as lighter 'ei;.-s and in
most instances commanded a premium. Veal trade
opened moderately active but slowed later in
the period. Good to Prime over ': advanced on
the basis of small numbers. A fair early de-
mand fo rprir-, lamb narrowed by lJednesday. All
primal cuts generally had adequate outlets, how-
ever late fore-end cuts moved best. Boston butts
in good demand, spareribs moderate. Pork loins
were very slow and declined to a five-week low.

PACIFIC COA Carcass steer and heifer
beef followed a two-way price trend, steady to


50 lower in San Francisco, steady to 500
higher in other areas. Most the price ad-
vance in Los Angeles was on Choice 700-900#,
Standard and Good 600-700# steer while the
downturn in San Francisco in contrast was
on steer above ,'OO.<. Cow beef was steady to
$1.00 higher, the advance in Los Angeles.
Calf and veal sold steady except $1.00-2.00
higher in San Francisco. Spring lamb sold
steady to 1I.00 higher at Los Angeles, steady
to 500 lower San Francisco and steady to $2.00
higher in Portland-Seattle. Fresh pork fol-
lowed a fairly uniform trend over the whole
area, steady to $1.00 lower except skinned
hams '1.00-3.00 higher and in San Francisco,
spareribs steady to $1.00 higher; cured pork
sold steady to $2.00 higher, most the ad-
vance on hams.
Supplies of most meats were fully ade-
quate for a fair demand, warm temperatures
an adverse factor in Southern California.

CARLOT I-EAT TRADE REVEEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OiIAHA, NER YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Although demand for beef was
