MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices advanced on most classes of live-
stock. Curtailed marketing coupled with sharp-
ly higher prices in the dressed trade contrib-
uted to higher steer and heifer prices. Slaugh-
ter steers and heifers sold 500 to $1.00 higher.
The number of steers and heifers sold out of
first hands for slaughter at the seven markets
totaled 96,500 head compared 115,400 last year,
but of this total, steers comprised 65,300,
smallest for non-holiday week since April 1960.
Cows sold steady to 500 higher. Feeder
cattle and calves were mostly steady. Barrows
and gilts generally sold steady to 500 higher.
Spring slaughter lambs were $1.00-1.50 lower,
with the exception of Denver which made up 36
percent of the 12 market receipts at fully
steady to strong prices.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Curtailed
marketing early in the week under review coupled
with price upturns in the dressed trade prompted
a broad demand for slaughter steers and heifers
and price advances were general. The higher
trend carried throughout the week despite a
larger than normal midweek supply and some
weakness late for steer and heifer beef. Slaugh-
ter steers and heifers closed 500-$l.00 higher.
Cows sold steady to 500 higher, except weak to
500 lower at Omaha where this class advanced
sharply the previous week. Bulls were strong
to 5fn higher. Vealers sold strong to $1.00
higher. The general trade on slaughter steers
and heifers represented a reversal of the situ-
ation which existed the previous week when the
number of cattle slaughtered under Federal in-
spection the largest for any week since January
1957. Bulk supply at most points was comprised
of Good and Choice slaughter steers and heifers
with the percentage of Prime at Chicago up
slightly from the 8 percent the previous week.
Cows made up 9 percent of the 12 market re-
ceipts.
Slaughter steers: In Chicago high-Choice
and Prime 1125-1400, brought $30.50-55.50 with
nine loads mostly Prime 1185-1400] at $54.00.
At other points, high-Choice and Prime 1400#
sold from $30.25-32.00, bulk Choice $28.00-
50.00, to $351.50 at Chicago for steers over
120Q,/; most Good $25.00-28.00; Standard and
low-Good $22.50-25.00.
Slaughter heifers: High-Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime 925-1025,# brought $28.00-
29.00, load 1040# $29.25 in Chicago; bulk
Choice $26.50-28.50. Good sold from $25.00-
26.50; Standard and low-Good $20.00-23.00.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at midwest markets
were little different in volume than the pre-
vious week and somewhat smaller than a year ago.
Although marketing this month have shown


seasonal expansion, the movement to terminal
markets has been considerably smaller than dur-
ing the first three weeks of September in many
previous years. Favorable late summer and
early fall weather conditions permitted many
growers and graziers to defer marketing plans
until a later than normal date. In addition
very extensive range contracting has diverted
many cattle from terminal markets. Yearling
and two-year-old steers made up a large percent
of current supplies but a moderate number of
yearling heifers also was offered. Trading was
somewhat uneven but at most markets prices
varied but little from a steady basis. Princi-
pal exceptions were at Kansas City where the
market was steady to 500 lower and at Oklahoma
City where a 500-$1.00 higher trend prevailed.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1000#
largely $23.50-27.00. At Omaha couple loads

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog supplies at
the twelve terminal markets estimated at
275,000 head were 4 percent less than the
previous week, and about the same as a year
ago. Sow receipts continued to dwindle as this
class comprised only 12 percent of the eight
market receipts or about 1 percent less than
the week before. Shippers were very active at
most terminals and in'many cases their orders
were left unfilled. Compared with the previous
week's close, barrow and gilt prices steady to
500 higher, excluding St. Louis with a 10-15#
lower trend. Sows were mostly steady to $1.00

lower.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Combined receipts at
the twelve major terminals totaled 107,000
head, compared 125,000 last week and 136,000
a year ago. Despite smaller receipts, slaugh-
ter lamb prices declined at most markets under
the influence of a sharply lower dressed lamb
market at wholesale centers. Spring slaughter
lambs at most markets closed 500-$1.50 lower
than the previous Friday. At Denver, which re-
ceived 36 percent of the twelve market receipts,
prices were steady to strong. Slaughter ewes

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Most wools were firm with quarter-blood
fleece wools around one cent higher. Trading
was moderately active with demand generally
fair for greasy domestic worsted wools at
Boston this week. Volume moved was a bit
increased over a week ago but small lot sales
continued to dominate. Activity in woolen
wools held slow while noils met moderately
good demand. Pulled wools appeared well
sold up and local spot trade meager with
some advance sale reported in spots.
Eastern Europe, Continent and Japan
were major participants at Australia and
Cape auctions with Japan re-entering in strong
fashion while United Kingdom was mildly ag-
gressive at Melbourne. Reports indicate
rather poor early season selection at
Australia but firm prices with all sections
buying and the close at Albany up two pence.
Cables released from Cape show good clean
up at strong prices and sustained advancing
tendency despite some let up in activity late.
The Crop Reporting Board of USDA announced
the average price received by farmers for wool
on August 15, 1962 was 45.10 per grease
pound. This compared to 45.70 for July 15,
1962 and 41.0 for August 15, 1961.
Fleece Wools Supplies were limited,
scattered odd lots sold firm.
Territory Wools Very little activity
reported in Territory states and local turn-
over moderate at fully steady prices.
Texas Wools There was moderately ac-
tive trade on Texas wools this week at steady
to strong prices. Volume in sales, predomi-
nately outside Boston, estimated around
400,000-500,000 pounds.
Mohair Prices moved higher with cur-
rent quotes as much as five cents above levels
of week previous. Adult sold at 56 and
kid around 91l to warehouse. Trading at
Boston held slow.
Foreign Wools Demand from Boston source
eased slightly this week and was mostly poor.
Supplies moderate and prices firm overall.
Cabled reports at week's end follow with
combing wools converted to clean U. S. oil-
combed yields and short wools to scouring
yields, in bond.

wools from New Zealand not available in any
significant quantity. Odd sales of Buenos
Aires scoured wools as is at 690 in bond and
greasy at 640 to 641# clean fibers present.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass prices
were 500 lower at New York and declines of $1.00
to mostly $1.50 were recorded at Philadelphia
and Washington. The trend was steady for steer
beef at Baltimore. Cow beef sold $1.00 higher
at Philadelphia and 500 lower at New York. Veal
prices were strong to $3.00 higher, major portion
advanced $1.00-2.00. Calf carcass prices were
$1.00 higher. Prices were weak to mostly $1.00
lower for spring lamb and at the close downturn j
of $2.00 were recorded at Washington. Pork
loins were $1.00-2.00 lower and a $7.00-8.00
lower trend prevailed at Philadelphia. Boston
butts sold $2.00 lower and little price change
affected other pork cuts.
Prices were $5.00-3.50 higher than close
previous week for kosher dressed steer forequar-
ters. Lamb sold weak to $1.00 lower while kosher
veal and calf prices were $2.00-3.00 higher.
Demand was good for kosher steer beef and fair
for veal and calf, but outlet was poor for lamb.
At the various markets along the Eastern
Seaboard trading was moderately active for steer
beef. Steer forequarters and particularly arm
chucks were in broad demand, but outlet was poor
for hindquarters. Lamb moved at a normal pace
early in the week, however, late trading was
slow. Retailers were active for veal and clear-
ance fairly broad at all market centers. Moder-
ate supplies of pork moved into retail channels
in an active trade. Supplies of most red meats
were normal, except New York where volume of veal
and calf was mostly moderate. Clearance was
incomplete at most markets on steer hindquarters
and small volume of lamb was carried over at
New York.

CHICAGO Compared to the previous Friday:
Steer beef 500-$1.50 higher, but closing trade
was slow. Heifer beef steady to 500 higher after
a large share of the early week advance was
erased in late trading. Veal sold steady and
lamb was $2.00-2.50 lower. Pork loins 8-12# and
spareribs 5# and down mostly $1.00 lower, Boston
butts 4-8# $2.00-2.50 lower.
Carcass beef trade slowed somewhat after
Wednesday and prices worked lower late in the
week. Bulk of the beef supply consisted of Good
and Choice and weight continued to be an important
price determining factor as best demand for steer
carcasses weighing over 700# and heifers weighing
over 600#. Demand was good for arm and squarecut
chucks throughout the week and substantial price
advances were recorded. On the other hand, after
Tuesday demand for hinds narrowed and prices
worked lower. Ribs and loins under pressure
throughout the week, particularly on the lighter


weight cuts. Seasonal increase in supply of
spring lambs and lower replacement costs sup-
ported lower prices and practically all cuts
showed some decline. Demand for pork cuts was
fairly broad near the close.

PACIFIC COAST Price trends on beef were
irregular, spring lamb maintained a stable
position and pork prices continued to work
downward.
Carcass steer and heifer .beef sold steady
to 25# lower in California, the downturn in
Los Angeles and on Choice steer under 700#.
However, in the Portland-Seattle area the trend
was steady to 500 higher except Standard steady
to $1.00 lower. Cow beef was steady to 500
higher in California but steady to $1.00 lower
in the Northwest. Calf and veal sold steady
to $1.00 higher, the upturn most pronounced in
San Francisco. Spring lamb held steady over
the entire area. Fresh pork loins and spare-
ribs sold from $2.00-6.00 lower in California,
loins mostly $2.00-3.00 lower in Portland and
Seattle, other pork items over the entire area
generally steady to $2.00 lower.
Most meats were in fairly abundant supply
in Los Angeles, except volume of Choice 800-
900# steer beef, calf and mutton moderate, and
trade rather slow. Supplies in San Francisco
were moderate and trade fairly active.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Trading was generally slow.
Prices advanced early in the week on below
normal supplies of steer and heifer beef.
However, supplies expanded at midweek and part
of the early advance was erased. Steer beef
closed 500-$1.75 higher, mostly 500-$1.00
higher. Heifer beef sold steady to $1.00
higher, mostly steady to 500 higher at the
close. Cow beef sold steady to 500 higher
under moderate supplies. Clearance was gener-
ally good on beef classes.
Demand was narrow for spring lamb. Trading
was only moderately active and prices declined
$2.00-3.50. Supplies were well cleared at the
close.
Demand was moderate and trading fairly
active but uneven on a normal supply of pork
carcasses and pork products. Pork loins sold
steady to 500 lower at Chicago and Omaha. Fresh
hams were steady to $1.50 higher follow-
ing the previous week's sharp decline. Pork
carcasses at New York and Philadelphia sold
steady to strong. Clearance was generally
complete on pork supplies.
