totaled 228,000, 11-percent more than the pre-
vious week and largest in six weeks. Increased
receipts gave buyers an opportunity to be more

Choice usually easiest to sell. About 8 per-
cent of the slaughter steers in Chicago graded
Prime, slightly less than the previous week.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts of hogs
at the 12 terminals at 595,000 were about 5 per-
cent below the previous week, but 7 percent

dressed pork trade a major supporting factor,

250 higher at western Corn Belt markets, how-
ever, sales were steady to 250 lower at most
terminals in the eastern part of the area. Sows
ranged steady to mostly 500 lower, $1.00 off at
Indianapolis. Barrows and gilts under 220#
found the most dependable outlet and price ad-
vances were usually on such weights. This moved
the price spread on all barrows and gilts to a
rather wide range. Mixed U. S. 1-5 grades
weighing 190-250# continued to predominate but
kinds over 250# were seasonally increased. Sows
comprised 11 percent at the eight markets.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold
steady to 500 lower; cow beef weak to 500
lower; veal steady to $3.00 higher; lamb
steady except weak to $1.00 lower at New
York; pork loins steady to $2.00 higher at
Philadelphia and Washington, but steady to
$2.00 lower at other markets.
Kosher dressed steer forequarters sold
steady to 500 lower; veal and calf steady to
strong and kosher lamb foresaddles unchanged.
Supplies of beef and lamb were normal;
veal, calf and pork moderate. Veal unloads
at New York were no better than 80% normal.
Clearance was generally good at all markets
aside from small carryover of lamb fore-
saddles at Washington. Beef trade was
active following a slow opening session in
some areas. Chucks were extremely slow
early at New York, but demand broadened late
and closing prices fully $3.00 higher.
Lower carcass prices were due mainly to de-
clines on hinds, loins and rough cuts. Veal
and calf moved quite readily as most inter-
eSts were active through the week. Demand
for carcass lamb was rather poor, while
concerted action on legs and hindsaddles,
mostly chain buyers, created a rough situ-
ation on foresaddles which met hard going
due to relatively narrow outlet. Spareribs
and fresh skinned hams moved best of the
various pork cuts. Loins were very slow,
except at Washington where these were
featured in retail channels.

CHICAGO Compared to last Friday:
Steer and heifer beef steady to 50 higher,
Veal $1.00 higher, lamb steady to $1.00
higher, 35-55# at the advance; pork loins
8-16# $2.00-2.50 higher, Boston butts 4-8#
$2.50-5.00 higher, spareribs 3# and down
steady.
Near normal supply all classes fresh
meat proved ample to fill trade requirements.
All weights about equally represented in
beef, Good and Choice grades most plentiful.
Choice offered most liberally in lamb, car-
casses 55-65# most numerous.
Carcass beef trade opened slow but be-
came moderately active by midweek with broad
demand on the close. Forequarters, arm and
squarecut chucks along with ribs absorbed
readily in all channels and moved to higher
levels. Rounds only moderately active as
demand narrowed somewhat from last week.
Beef loins rather slow but maintained steady


prices. Demand was moderate for all weights
and grades of veal. Carcass lamb trade
fairly active, all primal cuts in good de-
mand. On early rounds fair demand in the
fresh pork division except spareribs slow.
However, by the close all fresh pork cuts
slow.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer beef
sold steady to 50s higher, except Choice
700-900# steady to 500 lower in Los Angeles.
Heifer beef held mostly steady. Price
patterns on cow beef were uneven, being
steady to 500 higher in San Francisco, weak
to $1.00 lower in Los Angeles and steady
in the Portland-Seattle areas. Calf and
veal sold steady to strong and lamb steady
to weak. Fresh pork was steady to $2.00
lower, the most downturn on loins. Cured
pork sold mostly steady.
Supplies of all weights Choice steer
beef in San Francisco and Choice under 625#
in Los Angeles were below normal, most
other meats were moderate. Demand for
steer beef cuts centered on ribs and loins,
a normal development during the pre-Christ-
mas-New Years holiday period.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Trading was rather slow on
steer and heifer beef early, however, de-
mand improved by midweek and prices advanced
in a moderately active trade. Supplies
were slightly above normal. Prices declined
on fully normal offerings,of cow beef.
Steer beef sold steady to 750 higher, most
of the advance was Choice grade. Heifer beef
sold steady to $1.00 higher, mostly 500 to
$1.00 up. Cow beef was 750 to $1.00 lower.
Clearance was good on beef classes.
Demand was good for below normal
supplies of carcass lamb and trading was
moderately active as prices advanced.
Carcass lamb generally sold steady to $1.00
higher. Clearance was normal.
Supplies of pork products were fully
normal and trading was moderately active.
Pork loins sold 500 to $1.00 higher at
Chicago and $1.50-2.00 higher at Omaha.
Pork butts advanced $1.00-4.00. Fresh
hams sold steady to $1.00 higher. Pork
carcasses at New York and Philadelphia sold
steady to 250 higher. Clearance was com-
plete on most pork products.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Sales of greasy domestic worsted wools
in the Boston market was limited due to
continued scant offerings. Prices remained
firm. There was a little more interest in,
and occasional sales of woolen wools at
steady prices. Activity in the domestic
primary areas was practically at a stand-
still as most sections had little wool to
offer.
Australian cables indicated prices
continued very firm, showing a hardening
tendency under good general competition
with Eastern Europe, the Continent and
Japan competing. The South African mar-
kets continued firm with an upward trend
under general competition with the Conti-
nent, United States, Germany and United
Kingdom operating. Quotations from New
Zealand advanced up to 2 percent with
all sections active with local mills,
Japan and the Continent dominating. The
South American markets continued firm
with a good demand for 64s and 60/64s
Argentine chubut wools.
Fleece Wools Offerings of fleece
wools were limited.
Territory Wools Graded California
good French combing and staple 64s sold
at $1.50 clean basis. Approximately three
or four cars of bulk fine original bag
lambs wool sold at grease prices ranging
from 44-5/8-51-1/40 and was estimated from
$1.05-1.12 clean basis, delivered East.
Texas Wools Trade in Texas was
practically at a standstill.
Mohair Occasional small lots of
adult mohair sold in Texas from 66-71
while straight kid hair brought $1.41- to
the warehouse. At a recent sale in New
Mexico, adult mohair brought 654 and kid
$1.10.
Foreign Wools Spot foreign wools
continued slow. Greasy Argentine 64s
three inches and longer sold for shipment
around $1.04. Two and one-half to three
inch wool at $1.00 and 60/64s three inches
and longer at $1.02, all clean basis in
bond. Cabled reports at week's end follow
with combing wools converted to clean U. S.
oil-combed yields and short wools to scour-
ing yields, in bond.

Carpet Wools Trading on spot carpet wools
was slow. A scoured New Zealand type 702/5
crutchings sold around 670. Continuous heavy
rains in N. Z. have delayed shearing and offer-
ings at auction are smaller:than anticipated.
Greasy N. Z. carpet fleeces were quoted at 750,
early shorn wool at 750 and 702/3 crutchings at
660. Greasy Buenos Aires carpet fleeces were
offered at 670, November second clips at 66-670
and 36/40s lambs wool at 640, all clean wool
fibers present for shipment. At the well-attended
Liverpool sale of carpet wools tinged Jorias in
demand were sold from par to 5 percent higher
than last sale, with other sorts unchanged.

only small lots in practically all grades moving
at steady prices. Quotes follow:
