MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices advanced on all classes of live-
stock. Curtailed marketing coupled with
sharply higher prices in the dressed trade con-
tributed to higher steer and heifer prices.
The number of slaughter steers sold out of
first hands during the holiday week at the
seven markets totaled 57,200 head, and with
the exception of the week ending January 5,
1961, was the smallest since early April 1955.
Slaughter steers and heifers sold 25fto $1.00
higher. Slaughter cows were strong to $1.00
higher. Feeder cattle and calves sold steady
to 500 higher. Barrows and gilts closed 75f
to $1.50 higher. Spring slaughter lambs were
uneven, mostly 500 to $1.00 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES The holiday
shortened week was featured by active trading
and higher prices. Slaughter steers and heif-
ers sold 250-$1.00 higher under the influence
of curtailed receipts and higher wholesale
dressed beef prices. Best demand at most
points was again centered on slaughter steers
grading Choice and Prime and weighing over
1150#. Slaughter cows sold strong to $1.00
higher. Bulls were steady to 50f higher.
Vealers at St. Paul and St. Louis closed
unevenly strong to $5.00 higher. This week's
upturn in slaughter cattle prices was a con-
tinuation of the higher trend which began late
in June and at several markets prices on steers
and heifers reached the highest point in
several years. The price upturn was accom-
panied by $5.00-6.00 advances for steer and
heifer beef in the dressed trade. Bulk of
the supply at most points was comprised of
Good to average Choice steers 1200# down with
Prime making up near 10 percent of the supply
at Chicago. A slight increase was noted in
the percentage of heifers at several markets
with this class making up near 50 percent of
the salable supply at Omaha. Cows comprised
9 percent of the 12 market receipts.
Slaughter steers: At Chicago loadlots
high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime 1150-
1550# brought $51.50-55.00 with loadlots Prime
1125-1450# at $532.75-55.50, load 1527# $34.00.
At other centers scattered loads high-Choice
and Prime 1100-1400# cashed at $50.25-52.00.
Bulk Choice 900-1400#, sold from $20.50-51.00;
Good $25.00-28.00. However, numerous loads
mixed Good and Choice 950-1250# steers brought
$28.50-29.25 at Chicago. Standard and low-
Good cashed at $22.50-25.00.
Slaughter heifers: High-Choice and Prime
sold from $28.25-29.00; at Chicago four loads
935-97C# brought $29.25-29.50 with load Prime
211i $50.00. Bulk Choice over the area cashed
at 726.00-28.50; Good $23.00-26.00; Standard
and low-Good mostly $20.00-24.00.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
brought $14.25-16.50, few up to $17.00; Canner


and Cutter $12.00-15.50.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
were appreciably smaller than the previous week.
This was due in large part to the fact market-
ings were interrupted by a Monday holiday. How-
ever, supplies also fell short of the Labor Day
week a year ago. Relatively good late season
pasture conditions have been a factor in slow-
ing the marketward movement. In addition,range
contracting of cattle has been extremely wide-
spread this season and has diverted many from
terminal markets. Further sharp upturns in
slaughter cattle prices gave additional impetus
to the good demand for feeders which has char-
acterized trading during the past couple of
months. In brisk trading prices generally were
steady to 500 higher. At Kansas City the market
registered a 500-$1.00 upturn and at Oklahoma
City prices were steady to $1.00 higher, ex-
tremes $2.00 up.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1000#
largely $23.00-27.00. At Omaha several load-
string of Choice 937# brought $27.00 and Choice
fleshy 1240# went at $24.50. At Sioux City
Choice 850# reached $28.00 and 900# Nebraskas
with a reputation brand brought $27.50.
Aggressive slaughter buyer competition on part-
ly fattened two-way steers often was too much
for feeder buyers even though a very good de-
mand existed for fleshy cattle suitable for an
additional short term in the feedlot. Good and
Choice 550-750# $24.00-28.50, few loads Choice
and mixed Choice and Fancy 525-600# $29.00-
52.50. Medium 550-750# chiefly $20.00-25.50.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-750#
$22.50-26.50, load Choice 675# included at
$26.50; shipment 550# $28.00.
Feeder calves: Moderate number Choice and
mixed Choice and Fancy 550-500# steers $31.50-
54.00; other Good and Choice 550-550# $25.00-
31.00. Good and Choice 500-500# heifers $25.00-
29.00; three loads Choice 413-466# $50.00-
30.25.

HOGS Terminal markets The sharpest one
week price advance since mid-June boosted prices
of barrows, gilts and sows to the highest level
since October, 1958. This advance was prompted
by curtailed supplies coupled with a sharply
higher dressed trade. For the week, barrows,
gilts and sows were 750-$1.50 higher. St. paul
was the bellwether with several hundred barrows
and gilts early Thursday at $20.50. Supplies
at the twelve markets for the holiday shortened
period were down 59 percent compared with the
five days the week previous, and 29 percent
smaller than the four-day period a year ago.
About 14 percent of the supplies consisted of
sows. Barrows and gilts averaged near 220# at
most terminals which was little different than








recent weeks this season.
Barrows and gilts: U. S. 1-2, 200-240#
closed at $19.75-20.00, few reaching $20.25 at
St. Paul. No. 1-3, 190-260# $19.25-19.85, with
relatively large volume reaching $20.00 at
several of the western Corn Belt markets.

1-2, 250-350# $17.75-18.75, few lots $19.00 at
Sioux City and Omaha. No. 1-3, 350-400# $16.75-
17.75, No. 2-3, 400-550# $15.50-17.00. Omaha
and Sioux City reporting lots near 400# at
$17.50-18.00.
Feeder pigs at St. Paul were fully $1.00
higher with Choice 120-160# selling at $18.00,
mostly $18.50. Sioux City feeder pigs were
steady to 250 higher, with Good and Choice 130-
160,# selling at $15.50-17.00.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota hog re-
ceipts for the holiday shortened week totaled
155,000, compared with 297,000 in the full
period of the preceding week and 284,000 in the
short week a year ago. Available supplies were
generally short of trade requirements and prices
advanced each day until Friday when some weak-
ness developed. For the week barrows and gilts
were 75-850 higher and sows 60#-$1.00 up.
Barrows and gilts: On Friday, most U. S.
1-3, 200-240#1 barrows and gilts $18.00-18.75,

No. 2-3 $17.75-18.00.
Saws: U. S. 1-3 270-400# sows $15.50-

80,600 compared 111,300 last week and 79,200 a
year ago. Demand good. Barrows and gilts sold
75S-$1.25 higher than last week. Sows were
500-$1.00 higher.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12 major
terminal markets totaled 84,000 head, compared
with 109,000 last week and 103,000 during the
comparable holiday shortened week last year.
Curtailed receipts and higher dressed lamb
prices at wholesale centers were factors that
combined to stimulate a good demand and prompt
higher live costs. The advances marked the
first price upturn in four weeks. Spring
slaughter lambs closed mostly 500 higher, some
75#-$1.00 higher, with Choice and Prime $1.50-
2.00 higher at St. Louis and $2.00-2.50 up at
St. Paul. Fort Worth was an exception at steady
to 500 lower prices. Slaughter ewes sold most-
ly steady to 500 higher, feeder lambs steady.

Prime 80-110# $20.50-22.50, one load Prime 90#


$23.00 at Chicago. Mixed Good and Choice 70-.

lambs $20.50 at Chicago. Choice and Fancy
native lambs $16.00-18.00, Good and Choice 50-

Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area
sheep and lamb receipts totaled 8,900 head,
compared with 14,100 last week and 15,800 last
year. Reduced supplies against higher dressed
lamb prices were factors that served to
strengthen live prices. Compared with previous
Friday spring slaughter lambs closed strong to
500 higher, slaughter ewes steady.
Spring slaughter lambs: Choice, and includ-
ing some Prime, 80-110# delivered $19.00-20.00

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass prices
were $1.00-3.00 higher with the major portion
$2.00 higher. Cow beef sold strong to 500
higher. At Washington, veal prices were strong
to $2.00 higher, steady to $2.00 lower at
Philadelphia, and steady at other Eastern Sea-
board markets. Lamb prices at New York were
up $1.00-1.50 and at Washington $1.00-3.00
higher. Higher price trends prevailed on all
pork cuts as loins closed $2.00-8.00 higher;
Boston butts $1.00-4.00 up; fresh skinned hams
$2.00-5.00 higher and spareribs strong to
$2.00 above previous period.
Prices were $1.00-1.50 higher for kosher
steer forequarters and lamb sold $1.00-2.00
higher. Quotations were unchanged for kosher
dressed veal and calf foresaddles.
Receipts of steer beef and pork were con-
servative and available supplies were mostly
moderate but extremely small at the close at
the New York market. Volume of veal and calf
was normal, lamb near normal. Bulk steer car-
casses were 500-700# weights in the Good and
Choice grades. Trading was active for steer
carcasses and cuts during the short holiday
week. Demand was only moderate. Cow beef,
veal, calf and lamb moved out at a normal pace,
and at New York outlet was noticeably improved.
Pork trade was moderately active on early
sessions, however, buyer activity was very
brisk at the close. Clearance was complete
for all classes of fresh meats along the-
Eastern Seaboard.

CHICAGO Compared to last Friday: Choice
steer carcasses sold $2.00-2.50 higher, this
coming on top of the previous week's sharply
higher trend. Standard and Good beef carcasses
were $1.00-2.00 higher. Good and Choice heifer
beef sold $1.50 higher; veal steady; spring
lamb mostly $1.00 higher; pork loins 8-16#
$5.50-7.00 higher, Boston butts 4-8# $3.00-6.00
higher, spareribs 3# and down $1.50-2.50 higher.
Only moderate supplies of all fresh meats
and higher replacement cost contributed to the
sharp price advances. Steer carcasses weighing
over 700# continued scarce and weight an im-
portant price determining factor, particularly
on loins and ribs. Trading was active on the
limited supply of veal and lamb. Substantial
price advances were made on all pork cuts in
view of short supply. Weight preference for
lamb and pork cuts was often disregarded in


order to obtain sufficient quantity to fill
orders.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold steady to $1.00 higher, the most
advance in California for Choice grade. Cow
beef was steady to strong except in Los An-
geles where the trend was steady to 500
lower. Calf held at mostly steady levels
although occasional sales 300-375# weights
$1.00 lower in Los Angeles. Spring lamb
sold steady to weak in California, steady to
$1.00 lower in the northwest. Fresh pork
loins were firm to $6.00 higher, the sharpest
advance in Los Angeles and that measuring
$5.00-6.00; otherwise all other pork items
were generally firm to $2.00 higher.
Supplies of most meats were normal, but
in the Los Angeles area Choice steer and
heifer was slightly short of requirements.
The higher price trend on those classes was
a reflection of advancing midwestern prices
in the live trade. Los Angeles packers and
distributors experienced difficulty in ob-
taining sufficient numbers of live hogs and
pork from midwestern suppliers.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Prices for steer and heifer
beef advanced under good demand and below
normal supplies. Price quotations at some
centers reached the highest level in several
years. Trading was active until midweek but
slowed later and part of the early advance
was erased at some shipping points. Prices
on steer beef were from $1.00-2.00 higher.
Heifer beef sold 500 to $2.00 higher, mostly
$1.00 higher. Cow beef was steady to $1.00
higher, mostly steady to 50 up. Clearance
on beef was generally good.
Demand was good and trading moderately
active for a below normal supply of spring
lamb and prices were $1.00-2.00 higher.
Clearance was good.
Trading was active for a below normal
supply of pork products. Pork loins at
Chicago were $5.50-7.50 higher, pork butts
sold from $2.00-5.00 higher. Fresh hams were
$1.50-4.50 higher. Pork carcasses at Phila-
delphia sold $1.00-1.50 higher. Clearance
was good on pork supplies.
