ago and 448,000 a year earlier. U. S. 1-5
200-250# weights made up the bulk of barrows
and gilts offered. Sows estimated 8 percent
of receipts. Prices advanced moderately
through Wednesday under good demand and only
moderate receipts. Prices declined later,
however, as slow trading in the wholesale
fresh pork trade and closing of the fiscal
year for several packers narrowed the demand.
For the week, barrows and gilts under 240# were
steady to 25# lower; heavier weights 15-50#
off. Sows steady to 250 lower.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts at the 12 mar-
kets totaled 108,000 head, compared with
117,000 last week and a year ago. Sharply low-
er dressed lamb prices proved to be the primary

ter ewes were mostly steady, although Denver

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
fully 500 lower in New York while the trend was
steady to $1.00 higher at other Eastern markets;
cow beef steady to $1.00 lower, except Phila-
delphia 500-$1.00 higher; veal and calf steady
to weak at New York and Washington, while veal
held steady to $1.00 higher in other areas;
lamb weak to $2.00 lower at New York and Phila-
delphia, otherwise steady to $1.00 higher; pork
loins steady to $5.00 lower, mostly $53.00-5.00
off at close; other listed fresh pork cuts
steady to $1.00 lower, except fresh skinned hams
steady to $4.00 higher at Baltimore.
Kosher steer forequarters were 500-$1.00
lower and lamb prices were fully $1.00 off.
Prices were unchanged for kosher dressed veal
and calf foresaddles.
Normal supplies of all classes proved fully
adequate at Eastern markets. Beef outlet con-
tinued uneven. Prices turned soft after mid-
period at New York as some volume users curtailed
weekly purchases sharply. Cow beef also met
poor demand at New York. Veal grading high-Good
or better was scarce and active while liberal
showing Standard and low-Good held slow under
pressure. Lamb was moderately active and legs
enjoyed good outlet, while hindsaddles had first
call at New York. Pork opened slow but became
fairly active toward the close as lower prices
influenced fairly broad demand. Clearance of
beef, veal and lamb was incomplete at New York
and Philadelphia.

CHICAGO Steer beef sold fully $1.00 lower,
heifer $1.00-1.50 lower, veal $1.00 lower, lamb
$1.50-2.00 lower, pork loins 8-16# $2.50-3.50
lower, Boston butts 4-8# $1.50 lower, spareribs
5# down 500-$1.00 lower.
Supplies were generally normal in all
classes of fresh meat during the period. Trad-
ing in carcass beef was slow with prices weak to
lower on each session. Additional weakness in
the carcass trade was provided by downturns on
arm and squarecut chucks and rounds, which were
hard to sell. Most interests competed for ribs
and loins. A moderately active opening veal
trade slowed by Wednesday. Early demand fair
throughout in the lamb division, however, car-
casses slowed by midweek and at the close primal
cuts were best moving. Fresh pork trade gener-


ally was slow except loins moderately active
at the close.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef moderately active, steady to 500 higher.
Recent outshipment of carcass beef from Cali-
fornia came to a standstill about midweek as
prices declined in receiving areas. Cow beef
was slow, weak to $1.00 lower in Southern
California, mostly steady elsewhere. Calf
was fairly active, steady in California and
steady to $1.00 higher in the Pacific North-
west. Fresh pork cuts sold moderately active,
steady to $2.00 lower other than skinned hams
steady to $1.00 higher and in the Portland-
Seattle area. Lamb was steady to $1.00 lower
in California, the decline in San Francisco;
steady to 500 higher in Seattle and steady
to 500 lower in Portland. Cured pork sold
steady to $2.00 lower with the most decline
on sliced bacon and in San Francisco; best
outlet was for smoked hams.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Demand was poor for normal
supplies of steer and heifer beef. Trading
was slow all week and prices declined.
Prices on cow beef also declined on near
normal supplies. Choice steer beef sold
$1.00-2.50 lower, mostly $1.50-2.00 lower,
Good sold 500-$2.00 lower. Heifer beef sold
$1.00-2.00 lower. Cow beef declined $1.00-
2.00. Clearance was only fair on steer and
heifer beef.
Trading was slow on normal supplies of
carcass lamb. Demand was poor and prices
were $1.50-3.00 lower. Clearance was only
fair.
Demand was only moderate for pork pro-
ducts. Supplies were fully normal. Trading
was slow with pork loins $2.50-4.50 lower at
Omaha and steady to $1.00 lower at Chicago
where prices declined late in the previous
week. Pork butts were $1.50-2.50 lower.
Fresh hams at Omaha were $1.25-1.50 lower
but steady to $1.00 higher at Chicago. Pork
carcasses also sold in an uneven trade with
prices 25-500 higher at Philadelphia but
mostly 500 lower at New York. Clearance was
good on pork products.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


The supply of greasy domestic combing wools
in the Boston market was extremely limited,
prices held firm. There were occasional sales of
woolen wools and noils at about steady prices.
At the sealed bid sale in Portland, Oregon
October 27 approximately one million pounds of
Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho and Alaska
wools were offered. Over 700,000 pounds were
sold and private treaty trading continued into
this week. Woolen and worsted mill buyers were
among the twenty-four buyers present as prices
held firm for most grades and strong for medium
and coarse wools. A modest volume of choice 12
months wool sold in Texas at higher prices and
some fall wool sold. Trading was limited in the
fleece wool states.

yields encountered in 600-pound Choice grade carcasses. Values are calculated from prices
furnished to the Marketing Economics Division of the Economics R search Service by a large
number of selected retailers throughout the country.
