MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices declined on all classes of live-
stock with substantial downturns in the dressed
trade a major factor. Slaughter steers and
heifers sold steady to $1.00 lower. Slaughter
cows closed the period weak to $1.00 lower.
Seasonally increased supplies of feeder cattle
and calves were generally steady to 500 lower.
Barrows and gilts sold mostly $1.00-1.25 lower.
Spring slaughter lambs closed the week 500-
$1.00 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES The general
price trend on slaughter steers and heifers
turned lower at major livestock centers on
Monday when the twelve market receipts were
the largest for any day since April 30 of
this year and lower prices prevailed for steer
and heifer beef. Although marketing were
only modest at midweek,and some price improve-
ment was shown in the dressed trade, no sub-
stantial price recovery was made on slaughter
steers and heifers. As a result, slaughter
steers closed weak to $1.00 lower, except
steady at Sioux City. Heifers sold steady to
$1.00 lower; cows weak to $1.00 lower. Bulls
were mostly steady, while vealers at St. Louis
and St. Paul sold weak to $2.00 lower. Bulk
of the run at most centers was comprised of
Good and Choice slaughter steers and heifers.
Even though the average weight of steers was
slightly heavier than last week, they were
still well under a year ago. Cows comprised
11 percent of the 12 market receipts.
Slaughter steers: In Chicago loadlAts
mostly Prime 1250-1475# brought $32.75-33.75,
one load 12735 $34.00 and load 1598# $33.25.
Bulk high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime
1200-1400# sold from $30.50-32.75. At other
points high-Choice and Prime 1150-1400# cashed
at $30.00-31.25. Bulk Choice brought $27.50-
30.00, Good $24.50-28.00; Standard and low-
Good $22.00-24.50.
Slaughter heifers: Mixed Choice and
Prime 900-1050# cashed at $28.25-29.00; bulk
Choice $26.00-28.00; Good $23.00-26.25;
Standard and low-Good $20.00-23.00.
Cows: Utility and Commercial ranged
from $14.50-17.50, few $18.00; Canner and
Cutter sold $12.00-15.00.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES With the fall
movement of feeder cattle and calves from range
and pasture to market in full swing, late
September receipts were fairly large even
though very extensive range contracting this
past season diverted many cattle from terminal
markets. Overall quality was at a seasonally
high level. A relatively large percent of
supplies were Choice and a moderate percent con-
sisted of mixed Choice and Fancy shipments.
Yearling steers predominated. Although slaugh-
ter cattle prices veered downward during the


week, they still were at levels encouraging to
feedlot operators and, coupled with abundant
supplies of feeds and favorable weather condi-
tions, prompted continued widespread demand for
feeders. However, with supplies fairly liberal,
buyers were inclined to proceed somewhat more
cautiously than earlier this month and prices
ruled steady to 500 lower.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1000#
sold from $23.00-27.00, majority $23.50-26.50.
Scattered shipments Choice 800-950# $27.00-28.00.
At Kansas City load Good and Choice 1097# $24.10
and at Omaha Choice 1188# $25.00. Good and
Choice 550-750# bulked $24.00-29.00, Choice and
mixed Choice and Fancy $29.50-31.50. Two loads
714 and 721# included at $29.75 and $30.75:.
Medium 550-750# sold from $20.00-23.50, few
Holsteins $19.00-21.00.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-750#
$22.00-27.00; few loads, mostly 550-60Q0
$27.25-27.50.
Feeder calves: Load Choice and Fancy 390#
steers $35.00; few loads Choice and mixed
Choice and Fancy 350-425# $32.50-33.75; other

Choice 300-500# heifers $23.00-30.00. Not
many exceeded $29.00 but Choice 356# reached
$31.00 and 2851 $32.00.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading was moderately active during the
week at Boston. Good interest prevailed for
most wools except woolen and carpet types while
moderately broad demand for greasy domestic
worsted wools was well sustained.

Dealers generally reported rather limited
offerings of all wools particularly Territory
and fleece domestic wools. Prices over-all
were mainly on the strong side and while
quotations were unchanged, bulk of current
sales were recorded in high side of the price
list.

Woolen wools were relatively slow but
turnover of noils was fairly brisk with move-
ment into consuming channels quite substantial.

Australian auctions were active with
prices showing an upward tendency. Brisbane
had Eastern Europe and Japan buying freely
while at Geelong the Continent, Japan and
England competed and Japan was the principal
at Perth. Cape auctions reported 2, percent
price rise at Port Elizabeth and Capetown under
general good competition.

Fleece and Territory Wools Spot sales
comprised mostly medium and fine types from
these areas with moderate tonnage traded at or
near high figure posted for various grades.
Over 100,000 pounds California 56/58s fall
lambs wool was offered around 88Q scoured basis.
Delaine wools held a solid $1.30 in current
dealings.

Texas Wools There was moderate turn-
over in Texas at firm prices. Local activity
was dull.

Mohair An upward trend continued with
current markup fully 5 above week previous
and 15 higher than September 13 prices. Good
domestic distribution was reported but tonnage
labeled for export virtually nil. Adult sold
at 61J and kid $1.01 to warehouse.

Foreign Wools Demand was rather poor.
Fine and medium wools were available and ap-
peared to be moving well in outside sectors
and current sales volume was reportedly quite
substantial.


Carpet Wools Trading was generally slow
and demand mostly narrow. Prices strong. New
Zealand 702 crutchings offered for shipment
at 600. Buenos Aires scoured Nov. wools sold
680/690 and March clip around 65#/660 or a
little better. English carpet cross bred types
were offered but failed to attract takers as
prices far exceeded prevailing levels for
comparable competitive wools.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass prices
declined $1.00-2.00 at New York and the trend
was mostly $1.00 lower at Philadelphia and Wash-
ington. However, steer beef prices were un-
changed at Baltimore. Cow beef generally steady,
however, 500 higher at Philadelphia. Veal prices
were strong to $3.00 above'a week ago, except
mostly $1.00 lower at New York. Lamb prices
declined $3.50-4.00 at New York with sales $3.00
lower at Washington and $2.00 off at Philadelphia.
At the Baltimore market lamb prices were un-
changed. Pork loins were $1.00-6.00 lower, major
portion $4.00-5.00 off. Boston butts, spareribs
and fresh skinned hams closed $1.00-3.00 lower.
Compared with the close of previous week,
prices were $3.00-4.00 lower for kosher dressed
steer forequarters. Lamb sold weak to mostly
$1.00 lower and the trend was steady to strong
for kosher veal and calf foresaddles.
Trading was rather dull on steer beef car-
casses and cuts as demand held poor. While out-
let was narrow for bulk steer beef at New York
steer hindquarters at the close moved slightly
better than a week earlier, Veal moved promptly
at most market centers, except at New York where
hindsaddles sold slowly at midweek and there-
after. Lamb legs and chucks were in fair demand,
but trading was slow for lamb middle cuts and
carcasses. Pork trade was only moderately active.
Beef and lamb supplies were normal and receipts
bf veal were moderate. Volume of pork was near
normal. Small lots of steer hindquarters and
lamb carcasses went unsold at the various markets.

CHICAGO Good and Choice steer beef sold
500-$1.50 lower, Standard about steady, heifer
.$1.00-1.50 lower, veal about steady, spring lamb
$3.00-3.50 lower, pork loins 8-16# $5.00-6.00
lower, Boston butts 4-8# $3.50-4.00 lower,
spareribs 3# and down 500-$1.00 lower.
Moderate volume steer and heifer beef,
spring lamb and fresh pork on the market. Good
to average-Choice comprised the bulk in the beef
division, spring lamb mostly 35-55# although
supply of heavier weights adequate. Small veal
supply increased to moderate by mid-period.
Carcass beef trade a slow affair on each
session. A slow trade and declining prices on
most primal cuts had a weakening effect in the
carcass trade, arm and squarecut chucks showing
most decline. Rounds were the exception and
fully steady prices were maintained. Veal trade
opened moderately active on below normal supply,


however, numbers increased late and a weak
undertone was evident. A fair early demand
for spring lamb narrowed by Wednesday. Lamb
legs, stews and shoulders generally found ade-
quate outlets, while on the other hand center
cuts, particularly loins, were slow moving.
Fresh pork trade very slow, all cuts lower,
loins and butts registering daily declines.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer, heifer
and cow beef sold steady to $1.00 lower, the
least change in San Francisco where steer
beef was weak to 504 lower with heifer and
cow beef steady. Calf and veal held to a
uniformly steady price trend but spring lamb
sold mostly $1.00 lower except steady in San
Francisco. Fresh pork loins were $2.00-5.00
lower, all other pork items steady to $2.00
lower, exception smokedpicnics firm to $1.00
higher in Los Angeles.
Supplies of meats were moderate. Trad-
ing was generally slow.

Percentage of carcass weight in retail cuts ...... 78.94 74.3% 69.7%
Retail sales value per cwt. of carcass ........... $68.73 $65.18 $61.63

*These values reflect differences in the percentage of retail cuts from carcasses within the
Choice grade. The high and low groups do not represent extremes, but rather are intended to
represent carcasses typical of the upper and lower thirds of the total range in retail cut
yields encountered in 600-pound Choice grade carcasses. Values are calculated from prices
furnished to the Marketing Economics Division of the Economic Research Service by a large
number of selected retailers throughout the country.
