MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Salable cattle receipts at the 12 markets
during Thanksgiving week totaled 186,000 head,
14 percent below last week's normal marketing
period and 2 percent short of the holiday week
a year ago. Slaughter steers sold mostly
steady, while heifers were steady to 250 lower.
The number of slaughter steers and heifers sold
out of first hands at the seven markets totaled
84,900 head compared 95,000 head a year ago.
The average weight of slaughter steers at the
seven markets increased for the fifth consecu-
tive week and at 1115#, eight pounds under a
year ago. Slaughter cows sold steady to 500
higher. Seasonally normal supplies of feeder
cattle and calves moved at steady to strong
prices. Hog trends were very uneven, prices
for the most part were steady to 250 higher ex-
cept steady to 250 lower at St. Paul, South
St. Joseph and Kansas City. Slaughter lambs
sold steady to $1.00 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Trading on
slaughter steers at major livestock terminals
was uneven but mostly steady. However, in
Chicago, Kansas City and St. Joseph prices were
steady to 500 lower with the decline in Chicago
coming on Friday. Heifers closed steady to
250 lower. The only market around the circuit
that showed any appreciable price strength was
St. Paul where both steers and heifers closed
500 higher. Cows were steady to 500 higher and
bulls fully steady. Vealers sold steady to
$1.00 higher. Moderate marketing for the holi-
day shortened slaughter period tended to off-
set any bullish influence of higher dressed
beef prices. The twelve market receipts for
the first three days showed only minor change
from the previous week and this enabled buyers
to be somewhat more selective since killing
requirements were not as large. The average
price on all slaughter steers in Chicago for
the first four days was $50.14, compared $29.91
the previous week and set a new ten-year high.
Bulk of the run at most points was comprised
of Good and Choice slaughter steers and heifers
with Prime accounting for 9 percent of the
steer run in Chicago. Cows comprised 11 per-
cent of 12 market receipts and feeders comprised
23 percent of the run.
Slaughter steers: In Chicago loadlots
Prime 1175-1400# $52.00-355.00 with bulk high
Choice and Prime 1150-1400# $31.50-52.00. Bulk

$31.50 for loadlots over 1200# in Chicago; bulk

$15.50-16.00, few up to $16.50; Canner and
Cutter $11.00-14.00.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
were little different in volume than the pre-
vious week but there was more evidence of the
deterioration in over-all quality which usually
occurs toward the close of the fall marketing
season. This was most evident in moderately
decreased numbers of Choice and Fancy yearlings.
Nearly 5,000 head of Canadian cattle and calves
helped swell receipts at some of the more
northerly markets. The Thanksgiving Day holi-
day apparently had little effect in curtailing
marketing but did tend to reduce the attend-
ance of buyers. However, outlet generally was
fully ample to absorb the numbers offered and,
in the face of a continued good demand, prices
at mid-western markets were steady to strong.
Many buyers were looking for cattle to glean
stalk fields but abundant stockpiles of feeds,
favorable slaughter cattle prices and continued
good weather conditions continued to spark a
dependable demand.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
largely $25.00-27.50, few Choice 800-850#

HOGS Terminal Markets The holiday
shortened week saw hog receipts at twelve lead-
ing centers approximate 515,000 head, or 10
percent below a week ago. Barrows and gilts
sold unevenly, mostly steady to 250 higher, ex-
cept steady to 250 lower at St. Paul, South St.
Joseph and Kansas City. Sow trends were also
uneven, generally steady to 500 lower except at
Sioux Falls, Sioux City and St. Louis. Prices
were steady to 254 higher. Barrows and gilts

LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold steady
to $1.00 higher, cow beef steady to mostly 500
lower; veal and calf mostly steady except at
Philadelphia weak to $2.00 lower. Lamb prices
were weak to $1.00 lower at Philadelphia, other-
wise steady. Pork loins at Washington were
steady to $1.00 higher while prices were $1.00-
3.00 lower at other seaboard markets. The trend
for other listed pork cuts was steady to $2.00
higher aside from spareribs at Baltimore, $1.00
lower.
Kosher dressed steer forequarters sold
steady to strong but kosher veal, calf and lamb
foresaddles were steady to weak.
Supplies for the holiday shortened week
were normal in all divisions. Clearance was
generally poor for railstocks at most markets
and some pork was unsold at Baltimore and Wash-
ington. General trade on fresh meats was only
moderately active but slow at New York and Phila-
delphia. Carcass beef outlet was rather narrow
and beef hinds moved slow in all areas. Demand
and outlet for small stock classes was rather
narrow with best activity on cuts, although de-
mand varied at Eastern markets. In the pork
division, fresh skinned hams and Boston butts
moved quite readily with spareribs fair but
loins for the most part were slow.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef and veal
steady, lamb 500-$1.00 higher, pork loins 8-16#/
$1.00 higher, Boston butts 4-8# steady, spare-
ribs 5# and down $1.00 higher.
All classes fresh meat in about normal
supply during the holiday week. Good and Choice
grades mainly featured in beef, Choice the pre-
dominant grade in lamb, all weights about
equally represented both classes.
Carcass beef trade generally was slow. Cur-
rent demand locally centered primarily on rounds
and ribs; however, demand was good for all primal
cuts for next week's delivery at strong prices.
All weights and grades of veal were on the slow
side but sellers were able to maintain steady
prices. Carcass lamb trade ruled moderately
active. Hindsaddles, loins and ribs outsold
stews and shoulders. Lamb replacement costs
were up rather sharply. Boston butts and spare-
ribs moved well except butts closed slow. Pork
loins slow on each session.


PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer beef sold
steady to $1.00 higher, the upturn confined
to California. Heifer beef was mainly steady
but firm to 500 higher in Los Angeles. Cow
beef sold firm to 500 higher in Los Angeles,
but held largely steady at other Pacific Coast
centers. Veal, calf and lamb held steady
except in Los Angeles where the trend was
mostly $1.00 lower. Fresh pork loins were
weak to $2.00 lower, other fresh items steady
to $1.00 lower, cured pork generally steady.
Demand for most meats was normal for a
Thanksgiving week. Most meat items were in
normal supply, Good grade steer beef in Los
Angeles, along with Standard grade steer and
all cow in the Portland-Seattle area in fairly
liberal offering. Demand for beef ribs was
uniformly broad over the whole area.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Trading was rather slow on
steer and heifer beef early, however, by mid-
week demand improved and trading was moder-
ately active.. Supplies were below normal in
the holiday shortened week. Prices advanced
on all beef classes. Choice steer beef sold
steady to mostly 500 higher, instances $1.00
higher at Denver. Heifer beef was 500 to
$1.00 higher. Cow beef at most centers sold
steady to 500 higher and 500 to $1.00 higher
at Denver. Clearance was good on all beef
classes.
Demand was good for below normal supplies
of lamb and trading was moderately active
as prices advanced. Choice and Prime 35-65#
lamb sold from steady to mostly $1.00 higher,
and $1.00-2.50 higher at Chicago. Clearance
was generally complete. Supplies of pork
products were fully normal. Demand was good
early as prices advanced. However, some
products sold lower in the late trade. Pork
loins sold 500 to $2.00 higher. Pork butts
closed steady to $1.00 lower. Fresh hams
were uneven with prices 500 to $1.00 higher
at Omaha. At Chicago 10-14# weights closed
steady to 500 higher, and weights 14-20#
500-$1.50 lower. Pork carcasses at New York
and Philadelphia sold mostly steady to 250
lower.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Supplies of greasy domestic worsted wools in
the Boston market were limited. There was good
demand for the finer grades but supplies of me-
dium grades were extremely small. Prices contin-
ued firm.
Occasional lots of woolen wools and noils
moved at steady rates and a fair demand existed
for pulled wools of domestic and foreign origin.
There were scattered sales of combing wools
in the Territory states and a few lots of fall
and 12 months wool sold in Texas. Little was
done in the fleece wool states.
The Australian markets were very firm with
an upward trend on super spinners while other
classes were unchanged. Japan, England and the
Continent dominated the trade. Good general com-
petition prevailed in New Zealand with quotations
fully maintained. The Cape market prices contin-
ued strong with the United States and France ac-
tive. Small supplies in Montevideo sold higher
on the finer grades, while Buenos Aires carpet
type wools showed only slight advances.
The Crop Reporting Board of the USDA an-
nounced the average price received by farmers for
wool on October 15, 1962 was 44.30 per grease
pound. This compares with 44.70 for September
15, 1962 and 41.20 for October 15, 1961.
Fleece Wools Offerings of fleece wools
were insignificant.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good French
combing and staple wool sold around $1.30 while
graded 64s average French combing length brought
$1.25 clean basis, delivered East. A reputation
clip of original bag bulk half and three-eighths
sold in Utah around 535 grease basis to the grow-
er. A recent sale of original bag fine Roswell
wool brought $1.35 clean basis, delivered East.
Texas Wools A small clip of good fine 12
months wool sold in Texas at an estimated clean
price around $1.35 delivered. Very little 12
months remained unsold in Texas. Occasional
small odd lots of fall wools brought around $1.00
clean basis, delivered Boston.
Mohair There were small lots of good mo-
hair at 71 for adult and $1.31 for kid hair
with some poorer style adult at 66Q and 682 to
the warehouse.
Foreign Wools Sales of spot wools were
slow. All foreign markets continued strong.
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.

Carpet Wools Trading on spot carpet wools
at the local market was dull. A greasy gray
scotch carpet wool brought 56 while a spot New
Zealand type 702/3 crutchings sold at 640 clean
wool fibers present. Greasy Buenos Aires Nov.
2nd clip wool was offered at 66Q4 to 680, a 36/
40s lambs wool at 63, fleeces at 68-. Cor-
doba blends from 66 to 690 depending on the
type. New Zealand carpet fleeces at 751/760,
type 702/3 crutchings at 640 and early shorn wool
at 740. A pale yellow Montgomery Pakistan wool
at 670, all above offered for shipment on a clean
wool fibers present basis.
