MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Moderate marketing coupled with sharply
higher prices in the dressed trade contributed
to higher steer and heifer prices. The number
of slaughter steers sold out of first hands at
the 7 markets totaled 66,200 head; this, with
one exception, is the smallest for any non-
holiday week since mid-November 1960. In con-
trast, the number of slaughter heifers totaled
31,500, the largest since mid-December 1961.
The average weight of slaughter steers at the
7 markets was 1,079 pounds, up six pounds
from last week. Slaughter steers sold 50#-
$1.50 higher and heifers 25#-$1.00 higher.
Slaughter cows along with feeder cattle and
calves were steady to 50# lower. Barrows and
gilts at the western Corn Belt markets sold
25-50f higher, but steady to 25# lower in the
eastern part of the area. Spring slaughter
lambs closed the week steady to $1.00 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Prices for
slaughter steers and heifers bounced back after
last week's lower market and steers enjoyed
the sharpest advance for any week since August
1961. The previous week's decline was more
than erased and the average cost of slaughter
steers at a new high in over three years. The
advance came in face of the fact that receipts
for the two previous weeks were the largest
since January. Moderate marketing in the early
part of the week which included a larger per-
centage of feeder cattle than in recent weeks,
along with sharp upturns in the wholesale
dressed meat trade created broad demand for
live cattle. Slaughter steers sold 50#-$1.50
higher and heifers 25#-$1.00 higher. This
marks the eighth time in the past nine weeks
that prices have been higher. Cows were steady
to 500 lower, bulls 500-$1.50 lower and vealers
steady to $1.00 lower.
Slaughter steers: At Chicago, load Prime
1225# reached $32.50, mostly Prime 1200-140C0
$31.25-32.25 with mixed Choice and Prime 1150-
1400# $30.50-31.50, bulk Choice 1100-1400#
$28.50-30.50, Choice 900-1100# $27.50-29.50.
At other centers most Choice $27.50-29.50,
high-Choice and Prime $29.75-31.00, Good
$24.00-27.50.
Slaughter heifers: Choice and Prime heif-
ers at Chicago sold from 28.?5-28.75, most
Choice 251.50-27.50, Good $22.50-25.50.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
$14.00-16.25, Canner and Cutter $11.50-14.50.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Marketings of
feeder cattle and calves were moderate for late
August, but heavy marketing last week in the
southwest areas were slowed somewhat as rains
drenched much of the principal grazing areas
and improved pasture conditions that were
approaching a critical stage of drouth in some
areas. Increased numbers of calves were offered


but the majority of receipts were Medium to
average-Choice 550-850# steers. Heifer market-
ings continued in slightly larger than normal
numbers. Trading at mid-west markets displayed
some unevenness, but prices mostly steady. The
southwest areas continued to be under price
pressure especially on thin-fleshed steers and
calves suitable for wintering on pasture. At
Sioux City and Sioux Falls prices were steady
to 50f lower, instances $1.00 off on calves,
wiping out advances posted last week. Good de-
mand continued to exist for partly fattened
steers suitable for a short-term in the feedlot,
but advances in slaughter cattle prices found
most of the two-way cattle moving to packer
accounts.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1000O
mostly $22.50-26.00, few loads mostly Choice
$26.25-26.50. At Omaha 3 loads Good and Choice

HOGS Terminal markets Marketings in-
creased substantially over the previous week,
the expansion measuring slightly more than 14
percent. However, an improved pork trade
served to stimulate demand and generally steady
to higher prices were the result. No. 1-3
barrows and gilts weighing 190-250# comprised
the bulk of receipts. Supplies of kinds weigh-
ing over 250# were very scarce at most centers.
There was decrease in offerings scaling below
200# at several of the mid-western markets.
Sows made up between 9 and 25 percent of re-
ceipts at most points, Sioux City having 22
percent and Chicago 23 percent. Compared with
last week's close, prices at the western Corn
Belt markets were mostly 25-50# higher, but
steady to 25# lower in the eastern part of the
area. Sow prices were generally steady to 50#
higher with the exception of Chicago which was
steady to 25# lower.
Barrows and gilts: Most No. 1-5, 190-250#
barrows and gilts closed at $18.25-18.75, a
sizeable volume reaching $19.00 at Sioux City.

at $18.50-19.00, extreme top of $19.25 reached
at St. Paul on No. 1-2, 200-210Q.
Sows: No. 1-3, 250-400# brought $15.75-








17.75, some going at $18.00 at Sioux City and
Omaha. No. 2 and 3 400-600 saows sold at
$14.00-16.00.

50# lower prices, Choice 120-160O closing at

SHEEP AND IAMBS The 12 market receipts
totaled 109,000 head, compared with 95,000 the
previous week and 111,000 last year. Moderate-
ly increased numbers at terminals coupled with
lower wholesale dressed lamb prices influenced
declines on slaughter lambs at most points.
Spring slaughter lambs closed steady to $1.00
lower. Slaughter ewes and feeder lambs were
steady to 50# lower.
Spring slaughter lambs: Choice and Prime
80-110# $20.00-21.00 at most centers, but

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD At Washington and Balti-
more steer carcass prides closed mostly $1.00
higher and $1.50 up at New York. The trend was
strong to 250 higher at Philadelphia. Cow beef
prices were mostly 500 lower, but comparable
advances were recorded at New York. Veal and
calf sold weak to $1.00 lower. Lamb prices along
the Eastern Seaboard lacked stability and prices
worked mostly $1.00 lower. Pork loins closed
steady to $2.00 higher at Philadelphia but steady
to $1.00 lower at other markets.
Prices were mostly $1.00 higher for kosher
steer forequarters; lamb steady to $1.00 lower.
Quotations were unchanged for kosher veal and
calf foresaddles.
Receipts were near normal for most classes
of fresh meats. However, at New York supplies
of steer beef were rather small on late sessions.
Tridinr was moderately active for steer beef and
outlet was broadest at New York. At the latter
market minor advances were recorded on steer
loins, and rounds were $1.00-2.00 higher. Steer
arm chucks were $3.00-4.00 higher than the pre-
vious week's close. Turnover of veal and calf
was slow, but clearance was normal for below
normal supplies. Lamb moved fairly well, except
at New York where demand was poor for carcasses
and most cuts. Buyers were moderately aggressive
for pork. Clearance was generally complete on
all classes except for small lots of lamb that
were unsold at New York.

CHICAGO Good and Choice steer beef $2.00-
2.50 higher, Standard $1.50 higher, heifer fully
$2.00 higher, veal unchanged, spring lamb mostly
$1.00 lower. Pork loins 8-16#, Boston butts 4-8#
and spareribs 3# down sold steady.
All classes fresh meat appeared in moderate
volume for the week. Steer carcasses in the
500-700# range most abundant in this division,
also more heifer beef 400-500# on the market
than usual. Recent weeks have seen some increase
of spring lamb weighing 55-65#, however bulk
still 35-55#.
Carcass beef trade moderately active for
the most part. All primal cuts met a good demand
and generally sold substantially higher. Practi-
cally all interests were in the trade for chucks
and rounds for delivery after Labor Day week-end.
Veal trade was rather slow. Spring lamb trade
was slow as were end cuts, particularly legs.
Lamb loins and hotel ribs moved well into all
channels. Boston butts 4-8# and spareribs 3#
and down were in fair demand, pork loins on the
slow side. However, sellers maintained steady
loin prices in the face of rising costs.


PACIFIC COAST Pre-holiday carcass
steer beef trade in California was steady to
500 higher, the upturn in Los Angeles,
heifer beef mostly steady. Steer and heifer
beef sold steady to $1.00 higher in the north-
west, the advance in Seattle. Cow beef sold
steady to $1.00 higher but the uptrend was
limited to California. Calf was steady to
strong but veal steady to $1.00 lower in the
northwest. Spring lamb sold steady to $1.00
lower, the price change in California. A
very stable price structure existed for pork,
mostly steady in California except smoked
skinned hams steady to $1.00 lower in Los
Angeles after holiday orders were filled;
all pork steady to $1.00 lower in the north-
west.
Supplies of meats were near normal and
generally fully adequate for demand. Slaughter
operations and consumer buying at the retail
level varied somewhat from normal patterns

CHICAGO, DELIVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Demand was broad for the
near normal supply of steer and heifer beef
and prices at some shipping points pushed
to the highest level in more than four years.
Trading was uneven but generally active as
steer beef worked progressively higher dur-
ing the period, however, part of the advance
was erased on heifer beef late in the week.
Prices on steer and heifer beef ranged from
$1.00-3.50 higher, mostly $1.50-2.50 higher
with most advance on Choice steer beef. An
abundance of cow beef influenced a lower
price trend with prices steady to $1.00
lower, some $2.00 lower in Philadelphia.
Clearance was good on beef offerings.
Demand was rather narrow for the normal
supply of carcass lamb and trading was some-
what slow with prices unevenly lower. The
trend was 500 to $2.00 lower, mainly $1.00
lower. Clearance was largely complete.
Above normal supplies of pork offerings
cleared in a moderately active trade. Prices
on pork loins and butts were steady to 500
higher. Fresh hams sold 250-$1.75 higher.
Pork carcasses sold in an uneven trend with
prices strong to 500 higher at New York but
25-750 lower at Philadelphia. Clearance on
pork was generally complete.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading was generally slow with de-
mand rather poor for all wools at Boston
this week, and in many instances industry
people were on vacation. However, good
demand continued for domestic greasy type
worsted wools but supplies were limited.
Woolen wools were very slow while scoured
pulled wools and noils were moderately
active. Prices were generally fully
steady.
Carpet wools were slow at firm prices
at primary markets and in Boston.
Cabled reports from Australia indi-
cated good clearance for sales of August
20-24 at Melbourne and Fremantle while
auctions resumed at Sydney and Adelaide
on August 27. Latter opened around 2
pence under close at Melbourne for mostly
"B" grade wools while prices were steady
at Sydney. Futures market at London and
Sydney little changed but firm. Conti-
nent, England and Japan most active with
Japan absorbing around 55 percent of
fleece wools.
Territory and Fleece Wools Trading
was dull in these areas with limited sales
steady. Fine territory wools sold around
31.27 and fine fleeces around $1.25 clean
basis.
Texas Wools Recent sale at Del Rio
offered about one million pounds which
were well sold out. Dealers estimated
fall wools which moved at steady prices
would range from around $1.00-1.05 clean
basis, delivered East.
Mohair Trading was very limited
with demand from foreign source extremely
limited. Domestic outlet was largely
small piece orders. Prices were steady to
firm. Sales of adult were around 470
and kid around 82-85# for delivery to
warehouse.
Foreign Wools Spot foreign wools
sold at a moderate pace under generally
fair demand. The trend was steady to
firm with rather poor selection mostly on
offer.
