MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter cattle prices advanced under the
influence of moderate supplies and upturns in
the carlot beef trade. Prices were generally
50#-tl.00 higher on slaughter steers and heifers
with cows steady to 75# higher. Feeder cattle
and calves sold steady to 50# higher in a brisk
trade under good demand. Barrows and gilts were
steady to 25# lower as late declines offset
midweek upturns. However, prices in the
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area were
steady to 150 higher. Sows sold steady to 500
lower. Slaughter lambs closed steady to 500
higher, some sales $1.00 up.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
cattle prices advanced sharply at major live-
stock terminals in response to higher dressed
beef prices and a slight decrease in aggregate
marketing. Slaughter steers closed 250-$1.00
higher, mostly 500-$1.00 up with heifers large-
ly 500-$1.00 higher. Cows were steady to 750
higher and bulls steady to 50# higher, instances
$1.00 up. Vealers at St. Louis and St. Paul
sold steady to $1.00 higher. The average price
on all slaughter steers in Chicago for the first
three days of the week in review was $29.70,
equalling the high time a few weeks back which
was the highest in about ten years except for
a few weeks in the spring of 1959 when prices
were comparable with current levels. Bulk of
the slaughter receipts at most markets were
Good and Choice slaughter steers and heifers
with Prime making up 10 percent of the steer
run at Chicago, highest in three weeks. Cows
made up 11 percent of the 12 market run, and
about 29 percent were feeders.
Slaughter steers: Loadlots Prime 1175-
1400# in Chicago brought $52.25-35.50, including
five loads 1286-1375# at $5533.50. Bulk high-
Choice and Prime 1150-140OV cashed at $50.50-
32.50. At other markets loadlots high-Choice
and Prime sold from $50.00-31.00. Bulk Choice
over the area $28.00-30.00, up to $52.00 for
steers over 1200l in Chicago; most Good $24.50-
28.50; Standard and low-Good $22.50-25.25.
Slaughter heifers: Loadlots high-Choice
and Prime mostly 900-1050# cashed at $28.50-
29.50; bulk Choice $26.50-28.50; Good $25.00-
27.00; Standard and low-Good largely $21.00-
23.50.
Cows: Utility and Commercial closed at
$14.50-17.00, few to $17.50; Canner and Cutter
mostly $11.50-15.00.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Late October
marketing of feeder cattle and calves were as
large as any previous week this season. How-
ever, consist of supplies was noticeably differ-
ent. The movement of calves was much the largest
thus far this season while yearlings were in
moderately smaller supply than the previous week.
Two and three year old steers continued


relatively scarce. Choice and mixed Choice and
Fancy shipments made up a relatively large share
of the over-all receipts. A good demand
existed for most all classes and grades and in
brisk trading prices ruled steady to 50# higher.
Choice and Fancy calves showed most strength. A
materially higher price trend for slaughter
cattle during the week under review, along
with continued favorable weather conditions,
ample supplies of grain feeds and good late
pasture conditions all were factors prompting
wide-spread demand.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
largely $25.00-27.00. Not many were a kind to
exceed $26.50 but few loads Choice 800-875#
$27.50-27.75 and several shipments Choice 950-
1064# $25.50-26.50. Scattered shipments Choice
and mixed Choice and Fancy 525-600# $29.50-
51.00, several loads $32.00-55.50. Bulk Good
and Choice 550-750# $24.00-29.25; Medium and
mixed Medium and Good 550-750# $20.00-24.50.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 500-750#
$22.00-27.50, majority $25.00-27.00. Few loads
Choice 574-686# $28.00-28.25.
Feeder calves: Scattered shipments Choice
and Fancy 500-460# steers $37.00-40.00; ship-
ment 257# mixed steers and heifers $42.50.
Other Good and Choice 500-550# steers largely
$27.00-36.00. Few loads Fancy and mixed Choice
and Fancy 262-425# heifers $32.00-55.00; other
300-SO0# heifers of Good and Choice grades
largely $24.50-31.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at the
12 markets at 566,000 head were 5 percent less
than the previous week but 8 percent larger
than the corresponding period a year ago. Sows
comprised 9 percent of the receipts at the 8
markets. The price patterns were uneven. On
Monday, most of the markets were under the
pressure of liberal supplies and lower trends
prevailed only to be recovered Tuesday with the
addition of a substantial price rise through
Wednesday and in many cases upward until mid-
session Thursday. At this peak the aggressive
buying action came to an abrupt halt and sharp-
ly lower prices were recorded Friday that fully
erased the mid-week advance. Compared with the
previous week's close, barrows and gilts were
steady to 25# lower. Sow prices patterned
closely to the barrow and gilt trend, as most
markets were steady to 500 lower excluding St.
Louis, Indianapolis and Sioux City where sales
were steady to 25# higher.
Barrows and gilts: U. S. 1-2, 190-240#
closed at $16.75-17.25; No. 1-3, 190-250#

Feeder pigs at St. Paul were strong to 50
higher. Choice 120-160# were relatively scarce
at $16.00, few $16.50. Sales at Sioux City







were 250 higher, with Good and Choice 130-170#
at $15.50-16.50.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was $0.98 per swt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
October 19 to October 25, 1962 inclusive.

totaled 360,000 compared with 382,000 a week
ago and 325,000 a year earlier. U. S. 1-3
200-250-# weights comprised bulk of barrows and
gilts offered. Sows estimated 8 percent of
receipts. Prices moved mainly upward through
early Thursday under moderate to small receipts
and good demand. Most of the early advance was
lost later, however, as a large run late Thurs-
day along with the approach of the fiscal years
closing for some packers influenced late price
declines. For the week, barrows and gilts were
steady to 15# higher. Sows steady to 250 lower.
Barrows and gilts: On Friday, U. S. 1-3
200-240#, $16.00-16.60, moderate volume No.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts at the twelve
markets totaled 117,000 compared with 120,000

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading of greasy domestic worsted wools in
the Boston market remained very slow and supplies
continued extremely limited. Prices on all
classes of wool held firm. Movement of woolen
wools was rather slow while there was a slight
improvement in the movement of noils at about un-
changed rates.
At the sealed bid sale held in Casper, Wyo-
ming October 19 approximately 700,000 pounds sold,
200,000 pounds were withdrawn and about 200,000
pounds not offered. Prices received at this sale
were strong. Occasional small lots of fall wool
sold in Texas while trading was limited in the
fleece wool states.
Cabled reports from Australia indicated a
price advance of about two pence with Russia, the
Continent and China the principal operators. The
market in South Africa held strong with France,
United States and Japan active while good general
competition prevailed in New Zealand with all sec-
tions operating at unchanged prices. Quotations
in Montevideo were about 2 higher on all grades
while sales were limited in Buenos Aires at nom-

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold steady
to $1.00 higher, bulk 500-$1.00 up; cow beef
500-$1.00 higher; veal steady to $2.00 higher,
except at New York where veal held weak to
mostly $1.00 lower and calf steady to weak. Lamb
prices were steady to mostly $1.00 higher, ex-
cept $1.00-2.00 lower at Baltimore; pork loins
steady to $2.00 higher with New York and Phila-
delphia fully $1.00 higher; fresh skinned hams
steady to $5.00 higher; spareribs steady to
$3.00 lower; Boston butts steady to $2.00 lower,
except New York $1.00 higher.
Prices were 500-$1.00 higher for kosher
steer forequarters, while lamb sold mostly on a
steady basis. Quotations were unchanged for
kosher dressed veal and calf foresaddles.
Supplies were mostly normal for all classes,
except veal below normal at Washington. Steer
beef trading was moderately active at the sever-
al markets, however, demand pattern was rather
uneven again this week, particularly at New York
and Philadelphia where ribs, rough cuts and
hindquarters moved best. Trading on the latter
was active late at New York. Veal and calf
fared relatively poor at New York and some went
unsold. Outlet at other markets was adequate
for normal volume. Lamb moved slowly at Wash-
ington and Baltimore, but moderately active
otherwise. Pork was generally active in all
areas with loin clearance quite prompt and clean-
up good over all.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold $1.00
higher, veal mostly $2.00 higher, lamb $1.00
higher, pork loins 8-16# $2.00-3.00 higher,
.Boston butts 4-8f steady, spareribs 3# and down
$1.00 lower.
Moderate veal offerings during the period
while beef, lamb and fresh pork supply was normal.
More beef 700# and down on offer than heavier
weights, lamb weighing mostly 35-55#.
Carcass beef prices advanced in moderately
active trading. Good demand prevailed for arm
and squarecut chucks, rounds and particularly
ribs. Movement of loins was only fair but
moved to higher levels as did all primal cuts.
Demand was moderate for all weights and grades
of veal. Carcass lamb, stews and shoulders and
legs fairly active each session, loins and ribs
slow until the close when demand improved.
Fresh pork trade started slow, loins and butts
moderately active after midweek.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer beef sold
steady to 500 higher in Los Angeles, late sales
Choice at the full advance, sizable carlot ship-
ments Choice 700-900# weights to other areas


fully $1.00 higher; heifer beef was mostly
steady. Both steer and heifer beef sold
steady to instances 500 higher in San Fran-
cisco while the trend in the Portland-Seattle
areas was steady, occasional sales Standard
and Good grades 500 lower. The price pattern
on steer beef reflected the influence of the
first recent volume shipments of Choice car-
cass beef from Los Angeles to the midwest as
well as volume movement of slaughter steers
from California and Arizona feedlots to Colo-
rado and Texas. Cow beef was steady to 500
lower in Los Angeles, otherwise steady to
firm, veal and calf mostly steady. The price
trend on lamb was steady to $1.00 higher, the
full upturn in Los Angeles. Fresh pork loins,
fresh and smoked hams and picnics were firm
to $2.00 higher in Los Angeles, other items
