MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers and heifers sold steady
to 1l.00 higher under the influence of price
advances in the carlot beef trade. The number
of slaughter steers and heifers sold out of
first hands at the seven markets totaled 97,700
head, 6,400 more than last week but 4,700 be-
low a year ago. Slaughter cows sold 250-$1.00
lower. Seasonally large supplies of feeder
cattle and calves moved at steady to strong
prices. Trends on barrows and gilts were un-
even, generally steady to 25# lower, except
250 higher at Sioux City, and 50-750 up at
Sioux Falls. Slaughter lambs closed the week
steady to 500 higher except St. Paul, Kansas
City and Fort Worth steady to 50# lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES At major
terminal markets slaughter steers and heifers
sold steady to $1.00 higher to fully recover
the previous week's price loss. The only ex-
ception was at St. Louis where prices were
steady to 500 lower. Cows sold 250-$1.00 low-
er for the second consecutive week, as prices
of cow beef in the Chicago carlot dressed
trade dropped to a two-year low. Bulls were
steady to 500 lower. Vealers sold weak to
$2.00 lower. The slaughter steer and heifer
supply at most points was comprised of Good
and Choice offerings with Prime accounting for
12 percent of the steer run in Chicago.
Slaughter steers weighing over 1200# continued
relatively scarce and consequently such kinds
generally found the most aggressive demand.
Cows made up 11 percent of the 12 market re-
ceipts with feeders accounting for 26 percent
of the run.
Slaughter steers: In Chicago loadlots of
Prime 1175-1350# brought $32.25-35.25, one
load 1260# $33.35. Bulk high-Choice and Prime
1150-1575# cashed at $31.50-32.25. At other
points high-Choice and few Prime 1125-1525#
sold from $30.00-51.25; Choice over the area
brought $28.00-30.25; Good $25.00-28.00;
Standard and low-Good $25.00-25.25.
Slaughter heifers: In Chicago high-Choice
and Prime 950-1100# sold from $29.50-50.50,
including one load Prime 1096# at $30.50, high-
est on heifers since May 1959. Bulk Choice
over the area brought $27.00-29.00; Good
$25.50-27.00; Standard and low-Good $21.50-
23.50.
Cows: Utility and Commercial closed at
$15.50-16.00, few to $16.50; Canner and Cutter
largely $10.50-15.50, few to $14.00.

FEEDER C'ITTIL AND CALVES Although the
large volume fall movement of feeder cattle and
calves from range and pasture to market has
been in full swing in recent weeks and the
seasonal decline is approaching, receipts at
terminal markets during the week under review
were not much smaller than the liberal numbers


marketed the previous week. However, quality
was not as high a level as during the past sev-
eral weeks, principally from the standpoint
that fewer mixed Choice and Fancy shipments
were marketed. A liberal percent of supplies
were Choice or mixed Good and Choice consign-
ments. Price trends at the various markets
were moderately uneven but for the most part
were steady to strong as demand continued good.
Favorable weather conditions, need for cattle
to clean up stalk fields, abundant feed supplies
and slaughter cattle prices at levels encourag-
ing to cattle feeders, all were factors prompt-
ing a continued widespread demand.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
bulked $25.00-27.00. Two loads Choice 1007#
were included at $26.25 and at Omaha few Choice
800# reached $27.75. Scattered shipments
Choice and mixed Choice and Fancy 525-625#
$29.50-50.00; bulk Good and Choice 550-750#
$24.00-29.00; Medium and mixed Medium and Good
550-750# $20.00-24.50.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-750#
$22.00-26.25; load Choice 617# included at
$26.25. High-Choice and Fancy yearlings scarce.
Feeder calves: Moderate number Choice and
mixed Choice and Fancy 500-450# steers $56.00-
38.00, load 566# $38.50 and part load Fancy
385# $41.00. Good and Choice 500-550# steers
ranged $25.00-35.00, load Choice 519# $34.00.
Few loads Choice and Fancy 300-425# heifers
$52.00-53.00; other heifer calves running the
full range of the Good and Choice grades $24.00-
31.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets At the 12 markets
hog receipts totaled 361,000 head, 9 percent
more than last week, but 5 percent smaller than
the corresponding period a year ago. Compared
with the previous week's close, barrows and
gilts were steady to 25# lower except 250 higher
at Sioux City and 50-750 up at Sioux Falls.
Price trends for sows were uneven, generally
steady to 25# lower except steady to 250 higher
at Omaha, Sioux City and Sioux Falls. Sow
supplies at the eight markets accounted for10

upward during the first half of the week under

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Prices held firm on greasy domestic worsted
wools and demand was fair for small supplies.
Woolen wools and noils moved slowly but prices
were unchanged as rather limited supplies were
offered.
Buyers were active in the South African
markets for combing types and prices were strong.
Demand continued poor for short wools but there
was no price change. Active buyers in the South
African markets were interests from France, the
United States, Japan and Italy. In New Zealand
good competition was the rule and prices were
steady.
Fleece Wools Trading was very slow in the
fleece wool states. Few lots graded 50/54s sta-
ple wool was sold at about $1.10 clean basis.
Territory Wools In Portland, Oregon at
private treaty as of November 5, the following
sales were reported: Original bag fine wool
$1.27-1.28- clean basis on a core test. Orig-
inal bag I blood $1.18-1.20 clean, also on a
core test. Original bag Alaska and Aleutian
coarse $1.08-1.09 clean, on a core test. Most
wools now sold except some 50,000 pounds of high
quality one-quarter and 50,000 pounds Valley
Oregon lambs.
Texas Wools Fall wools sold at around
$1.00 clean basis and this price is unchanged
from previous week.
Mohair Urgency was lacking for adult and
kid mohair. Few lots of adult hair brought 711
and straight kid mohair netted $1.40-1.50 in
limited sales.
Foreign Wools Spot sales were insignifi-
cant while most foreign wool markets were active.
Prices were steady to mostly strong. Cabled re-
ports at week's end follow with combing wools
converted to clean U.S. oil-combed yields and
short wools to scouring yields, in bond.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold strong
to $1.00 higher at New York, mostly 500-$1.00
up, while the trend at other markets was steady
to $1.50 lower with some unevenness at Balti-
more, and Philadelphia showing the full decline.
Cow beef 504 higher at New York, otherwise
steady to $2.00 lower. Veal and calf prices
unchanged. Lamb steady to $2.00 lower. Pork
loins steady to $1.00 higher at Washington,
otherwise steady to $4.00 lower, except 12-16's
$1.00 higher at Philadelphia. Other listed
pork cuts steady to $4.00 lower, except fresh
skinned hams steady to $1.00 higher at Balti-
more and New York, while Washington showed
Boston butts steady to $1.00 higher.
Kosher dressed steer forequarters were
fully $2.00 higher at New York, while prices
were mostly unchanged for kosher veal, calf
and lamb.
Supplies of all classes of fresh meat were
normal at Eastern markets except moderate at
Philadelphia. The week's business was cur-
tailed somewhat due to limited operations on
Election day. Trading for beef was moderately
active for the most part with carcass movement
fair, but forequarter cuts outsold hindquarters
and particularly loins and these cuts were
carried in some areas. Chucks and rounds were
short of demand, particularly at New York.
Veal and calf outlet was moderate and prepon-
derance of lower grades met hard going at close
in New York. Lamb opened slow, but turned
moderately active later, with prices mostly
lower at the several markets. Demand for pork
was generally fair, but buyers indicated little
urgency. Some beef hindquarters and veal hind-
saddles were unsold late at Washington.

CHICAGO Steer beef sold 500-$1.50
higher, heifer $1.00 higher, veal, lamb and
listed pork cuts steady.
All classes fresh meat were in about nor-
mal volume. Good and Choice the predominating
grades in beef, carcasses 700# and down offered
most liberally. Bulk supply of lamb 55-55#.
Trading in carcass beef generally moder-
ately active. However, best demand in this
division was for primal cuts. Arm and square-
cut chucks, rounds, and loins found ready out-
lets, chucks as much as $3.00 above last week's


close. Rib trade was rather slow. A slow
veal trade turned moderately active. Lamb
prices went unchanged in a moderately active
trade. For the most part lamb cuts cleared
well. Fresh pork trade generally was slow,
best action on Tuesday.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef moderately active, steady to 500 higher
in Southern California and the Pacific North-
west. In San Francisco trading was slow,
steer beef steady to 500 lower and heifer
mostly steady. Cow and bull beef in very
poor demand, 50 to $1.00 lower in California
and steady to $1.00 lower in the Portland-
Seattle area. Calf held mostly steady. Lamb
was fairly active, steady to 500 lower. Fresh
pork steady to $3.00 lower in a rather slow
trade. Cured pork cuts slow, steady to $2.00
lower other than smoked hams strong to $2.00
higher in San Francisco. Supplies were
generally normal.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Demand was only fair for near
normal supplies of steer and heifer beef.
Trading was slow early but moderately active
at midweek when prices advanced. Demand
narrowed later and part of the advance was
erased in late trading. Prices on cow beef
declined on normal supplies. Steer beef sold
$1.00-2.00 higher at most major centers ex-
cept at Chicago where the trend was steady
to $1.00 higher. Heifer beef sold 500-$2.00
higher, mostly $1.00-1.50 higher. Cow beef
was steady to $1.00 lower, mostly steady to
500 lower. Clearance was good on beef classes.
Demand was fair and trading moderately
active on below normal offerings of carcass
lamb. Prices were mostly steady with last
week's close except steady to 500 lower at
Philadelphia. Clearance was complete.
Supplies of pork products were fully
normal and trading was moderately active
under moderate demand. Pork loins sold steady
to $1.00 lower at Omiaha and Chicago, pork
butts $1.00-2.00 higher, and fresh hams were
steady to $2.00 higher. Pork carcasses sold
steady to 500 lower at New York and Phila-
delphia. Clearance was good on pork products.

THE LIVESTOCK AND MEAT SITUATION
Approved by the Outlook and Situation Board, November 6, 1962
SUMMARY

The outlook for 1965 is for cattle and hog prices to average slightly below this year but
for lamb prices to average a little higher. Cattle marketing will increase in 1963 and, because
of the upward trend in the demand for beef, likely will more than offset any decrease in price.
Therefore, cash receipts from the sale of cattle and calves probably will be up from receipts
this year. Cash receipts from hogs, and sheep and lambs in 1963 are expected to be about the
same as for this year.
Cattle slaughter this year is about 2.5 percent above last year's slaughter. However,
domestic beef production is up only about 1 percent due to a drop in the average dressed weight
per head slaughtered. A strong demand for beef resulted in imports of processing beef rising
slightly from a year ago and also lowered domestic cold storage holdings of beef. Total civilian
disappearance of beef will set a new record of about 16.3 billion pounds. Per capital consumption
in 1962 is expected to be about 89 pounds -- about a pound above consumption per person last
year.
An increase in the size of this year's calf crop, along with a slight decrease in calf
slaughter, and imports of live cattle only slightly below last year, is expected to result in an
increase of about 2.5 million head in the cattle and calf inventory. Cattle numbers are ex-
pected to exceed 100 million head for the first time in history, with an inventory of about 102
million head in sight for January 1, 1963.
Cattle slaughter and beef production are expected to increase in 1963. Imports of process-
ing beef may decline somewhat from this year's level, but the total supply of beef is expected
to be large enough to enable per capital consumption to increase by about a pound.
Factors expected to exert downward pressure on cattle prices are: (1) Increased beef pro-
duction; (2) increased supplies of pork and poultry; and (5) an increase in the farm to retail
price spread. Factors which will be price-strengthening in their effect are: (1) Increased
population, (2) a continuation in the upward trend in consumer preference for beef, and (5) some
increase in per capital disposable income. However, the increase in demand may not be sufficient
to offset the factors working toward lower prices. Therefore, cattle prices in 1963 may average
slightly lower than for this year.
Fed cattle prices in 1963 are expected to continue above year-earlier prices until mid-
winter but likely will average below 1962 prices from then through spring. Prices for slaughter
cows probably will increase in the late winter and spring but may hold slightly below this year's
average price.
A 2 percent decline in this year's spring pig crop is providing less pork than a year ago,
particularly in the last quarter of this year. For all of 1962, however, pork supplies from the
4 percent larger fall pig crop of 1961, along with slightly larger imports and increased con-
sumption out of cold storage holdings will increase the per capital consumption of pork about 3/4
of a pound from the 62.2 pounds consumed last year.
A strong summer demand for meats pulled hog prices above a year earlier in mid-June, and
prices have averaged above a year earlier since then. However, because of the extent to which
prices were below year earlier for the first half of this year, the average price received by
farmers for 1962 is expected to be about 20 cents per hundredweight under the 1961 average of
$16.60.
Per capital consumption of pork is expected to increase by about 5/4 of a pound again in
1963. The 1962 fall pig crop is probably about 2 to 5 percent larger than last fall, and
producers in 10 Corn Belt States have reported intentions to increase farrowings in the first
half of the 1963 spring crop by 4 percent. Hog prices probably will be below this year through-
out most of 1965 with the average price received by farmers declining moderately from this year.
Sheep and lamb slaughter will total about 16.7 million head this year. This rate of
slaughter probably will bring about a reduction of sheep and lamb numbers about equal to the 1.5
million head decline in 1961. The January 1, 1963, sheep and lamb inventory probably will be
near 50 million head and the lowest year beginning inventory since 1950.
Per capital consumption of lamb and mutton this year will be down slightly from the 5.1
pounds consumed per person in 1961. A greater decline in lamb and mutton consumption is in
prospect for 1963. With sheep and lamb numbers next year at one of the lowest levels of record,
moderately higher lamb prices are in sight for 1963. The greatest improvement in lamb prices,
relative to this years price, probably will be during the first quarter. Lamb slaughter during
the January-March quarter was high this year, reflecting slaughter of a large number of lambs
out of the stock sheep inventory. A repeat of this situation is not expected next year. Prices
for early spring lambs are also expected to be improved somewhat next year.
