MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers and heifers
declined sharply Tuesday under the influence
of liberal receipts following the holiday Mon-
day. However, the declines were recovered at
most points later in the week in response to
curtailed marketing and higher dressed beef
prices. Slaughter steers closed steady to
250 higher at most points, heifers averaged
about steady except Choice and Prime steady to
50 lower at Chicago and all grades weak to
50 lower at St. Paul. Cow prices were gener-
ally steady to 500 higher; stockers and feeders
steady in the midwest but strong to $1.00 high-
er at southwestern terminals. Hog prices were
unevenly steady to $1.00 higher, large share
25-504 up. Spring slaughter lambs closed
mainly 504-$1.00 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Distribu-
tion of receipts was a major factor influencing
cattle prices during the week. The higher
price trend on steers and heifers a week ear-
lier and the holiday shortened marketing period
prompted producers to increase shipments Tues-
day. The 12 market receipts for the holiday
shortened week were curtailed by 14 percent
and about 65 percent of the total supply
arrived for Tuesday's market. Despite the
overall decrease in marketing, the volume of
slaughter steers and heifers at the 7 markets
was only 5 percent below the previous week.
Higher wholesale dressed beef prices broadened
the demand for most cattle but even so prices
turned lower on Tuesday s unusually large
offering. All of Tuesday's price decline was
recovered on later market sessions at most
points as receipts were sharply curtailed.
Slaughter steers were generally steady to 250
higher although Omaha was weak to 254 lower
on weights over 1125#. Steers below 1150#
found the broadest outlet at most points. Heif-
ers were weak to 500 lower at St. Paul and high-
Choice and Prime steady to 500 lower in Chicago
but prices at most other markets averaged
about steady. Cows were in small supply at
most terminals and sold steady to 50 higher
with sales at Sioux City 50-75# higher. Bulls
were steady to strong although St. Paul had
a 500 lower trend. Vealers sold $2.00-3.00
higher in St. Paul and $1.00 up at St. Louis.
Two loads of Prime steers sold at $29.50
in Chicago and numerous loads of high-Choice
and mixed Choice and Prime brought $26-25-28.50.
At other points a few high-Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime steers sold from $26.00-27.00.
Bulk of the Good to average-Choice steers sold
at $21.50-26.50 with high-Good and Choice
largely from $24.25-26.00. Most Good and
Choice heifers brought $21.00-25.75 with Choice
largely $24.50-25.75. High-Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime heifers sold at $26.00-27.25


in Chicago with a load of mostly Prime 1040#
$28.00. Utility and Commercial cows sold from
$15.00-17.00 while Canners and Cutters brought
$13.00-16.00 with Cutters up to $16.50 at
several points.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Stocker and feeder supplies were very small
in the Corn Belt but moderate at some south-
west points. Steer and calf shipments from
the 10 markets totaled 19,906 compared to
32,557 the previous week and 23,021 a year
earlier. Medium and Good offerings bulked in
receipts. At Kansas City the supply was the
smallest for the season to-date, and some
other markets had too few to provide an ade-
quate test of price trends. Prices were steady
in midwest but strong to $1.00 higher at Okla-
homa City, Fort Worth and Wichita.
Good and Choice 700-1000# feeder steers
sold from $21.00-25.00, mostly $22.00-24.50,
the same weights Medium and Good unevenly
$17.00-25.50, few Common $15.00. Good and
Choice 500-750# steers realized $22.00-
26.25, uniformly Choice lots scarce; Medium
and Good $18.00-23.00; Common and Medium un-
evenly $13.50-21.00. Good 700# feeder heif-
ers sold at $22.75 at St. Joseph and a load
Choice 525# $25.00 at Sioux City where a part
load cashed at $26.00. Scattered loads and
part loads Good and low-Choice heifers $20.00-
24.00 with Medium and Good stock heifers
largely $17.00-22.00. Good and Choice fleshy
700-825# heifers at Denver at $24.00-24.75.
Scattered loads high-Good to mostly Choice
stock steer calves at Missouri River points
sold at $30.00-31.50, while most of the Good
and Choice steer calves brought $23.00-28.50,
2 loads 385# $29.40 at Oklahoma City; Common
and Medium steer calves $15.50-22.50. A few
Good and Choice heifer calves brought $20.00-
25.50, with Common, Medium and low-Good $14.00-
20.00. Most Medium and Good stock cows sold
from $14.00-16.00, Common cows with calves
by side at $150.00 per pair at Fort Worth.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts were
substantially reduced, due mainly to the July
4 Holiday on Monday, however, supplies were
only moderate on the four marketing days of the
week. The 12 market receipts were 21 percent
less than the previous week and 31 percent
less than the corresponding week a year ago.
Consignments of mixed No. 1-3 and No. 2-3,
200-270# barrows and gilts continued to make
up the bulk of the butcher supply with weights
under 200# relatively scarce except at Eastern
Corn Belt centers. Sows comprised 18 percent
of the 8 market total compared to 16 percent
the previous week and 20 percent a year ago.
Order buyers at most centers again proved to be




515


aggressive buyers for 190-230-- barrows and
gilts with those interests frequently taking
weights up to 250# to fill existing orders.
Prices in general held fairly stable through
Thursday but rather limited receipts on Friday
plus advances on dressed pork influenced up-
turns in the live trade. Barrows and gilts
closed unevenly steady to $1.00 higher, large-
ly 25-504 up. However, weights under 24,w
at Chicago closed steady to 250 lower. Sows
sold steady to 500 higher.
On closing rounds U. S. No. 1, and No.
1-2 barrows and gilts usually weiPhinr 190-
230# but including some lots up to 250# sold
at $18.00-19.00, largely $18.25-18.75. Mixed
U. S. 1-3, and No. 2-3, 180-250# butchers
brought $17.25-18.75, mainly $17.50-18.25,
same grades 180-2400 at Indianapolis $17.75-
18.75 and 190-270# at Sioux City $17.50-18.00,
U. S. 1-3, 270-600f sows bulked at $13.25-
16.00.
Feeder pigs held steady at St. Paul but
advanced 500 at Sioux City. Medium and Good
130-16r'- feeders at Sioux City brought $16.50-
17.00, some Good and Choice $17.00-17.50 while
the same weights, largely Good feeders at
St. Paul sold at $16.00-16.50.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-2?20 barrows
and gilts was 970 per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
June 30 to July 6, 1960 inclusive.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern 'innesota
Area The holiday shortened week was partly
the cause for an 18 percent reduction in re-
ceipts compared to the previous week's supply,
but daily receipts were also less than cor-
responding days last week as poor demand re-
tarded movement. Closing prices compared with
Friday the previous week were steady to 250
higher on butchers; sows mainly steady. At
the close U. S. No. 1-3, 190-24f0 butchers
sold at $16.45-17.25, bulk $16.55-17.25, moder-
ate volume No. 1 and 2 selected lots $17.25-
17.75. Mixed No. 1-3, 270-400# sows $13.50-
15.40, 400-550# $12.15-14.00. Sows comprised
fully 17 percent of the total receipts.

SHEEP AtDf LAMBS Substantial price ad-
vances on dressed lamb the past two weeks
along with curtailed marketing influenced
further upturns on slaughter lambs for the
week in review. Spring slaughter lambs were
254-1.75 higher with most sales 500-$1.00 up.

in limited supply with prices steady to strong,

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT 'TAT TRADE PFV17T'S

EASTERN SEABOARD Trading on fresh meats
was quite active on all sessions with most in-
terests participating and chain buyers generally
most aggressive. Moderately broad demand pre-
vailed for bulk carcasses and cuts all classes.
Receipts were cut-back due to the holiday-
shortened business week with available supplies
all classes moderate to normal at most markets.
The larger reduction in receipts at New York
affected spring lamb and supplies on late
sessions were inadequate in instances for broad
inquiry in chain store channels. Clearance of
all meats was generally complete on the East-
ern Seaboard. The general price pattern was
steady to higher and bulk meats sold at New York
on a plus basis.
Steer beef sold 504-$1.50 higher at Wash-
ington, Philadelphia and New York and steady at
other markets. Cow beef closed mostly steady.
Veal and calf sold steady to mostly $2.00 higher
at New York and prices were fully steady at
Philadelphia with sales at Washington on steady
to weak basis and steady at other points.
Spring lamb turned on a steady to $4.00 higher
basis with the upturns at New York measuring
fully $3.00-4.00. The close on pork loins
indicated a steady to $4.00 higher trend with
the full upturn at Philadelphia. Other pork
cuts steady to $4.00 higher except some fresh
skinned hams at Baltimore steady to $2.00
lower. Choice and Prime kosher dressed
steer forequarters were about $1.00 higher
and the same grades of kosher spring lamb fore-
saddles advanced fully $2.00, but kosher veal
and calf was unchanged.

CHICAGO Supplies of all classes of
fresh meats were moderate on the initial ses-
sion, veal and fresh pork reduced thereafter
and rather small. Prime beef remained rather
scarce as bulk graded Good and Choice. Most
spring lamb carcasses weighed 35 -F., pork
loins 8-12# for the most part. Sales of
carcass beef were rather limited, the bulk
for the week clearing in the form of primal
cuts. Chucks best in the beef division fol-
lowed closely by loins. Demand was moderate
for ribs and rounds but a godpr clearance was
effected for all cuts. Trading on veal was
rather slow but prices were steady on the
strength of small supplies and firm replace-
ment costs. A moderate local demand and
rather broad eastern outlets influenced ad-
vances on spring lamb for the second straight
week. Little or no price spread on the var-
ious weight averages, those 55-5t" most
wanted. Lamb legs were hard to sell but
other cuts moved in most channels. All fresh
pork cuts were in pvoo demand, loins advanc-
ing to a new high since early September last
a"- r.


Steer and heifer beef steady to 500 higher;
veal inchanred; spring lamb $2.00-2.50 higher;
pork loins $2.50-3.00 higher; Boston butts
steady to 50 higher; spareribs steady to $1.00
higher.

PACIFIC COAST Steer beef supplies were
moderate at Los Angeles but normal and fully
adequate for a fair demand at other points.
Cow beef was fairly liberal for moderate out-
let. Spring lamb continued liberal. Fresh
pork supplies were rather small,
Steer beef sold mostly steady;
cow beef uneven averaging steady; calf steady
to $2.00 lower; veal steady to $2.00 higher;
spring lamb steady except steady to $1.50
higher at Portland; fresh pork loins 1i.00-
8.00 higher; fresh skinned hams steady to
$1.00 higher at Portland and $1.00 lower at
Los Angeles; other fresh pork steady to $2.00
higher, with spareribs as much as $4.00
up at Sari Francisco; smoked skinned hams
steady; sliced bacon steady to $2.00 higher;
lard steady to 50 hijhL-r.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Most mills were closed for the annual
vacation period and trading was very limited
in the Boston wool market and prices were
about steady. A few lots of scoured wools
were sold at about unchanged prices, while
noils were extremely slow. Turnover of
fleece wools in the primary market was
practically at a standstill. A few sales
were reported in the northern territory
States and a few cars were sold in Texas.
Cabled reports from Australia showed
Japan and Continental buyers operating with
prices steady to 2- percent lower. There
were large withdrawals of combing wools
while oddments sold unchanged. Argentine
carpet wools were slightly easier with Monte-
video quotations unchanged.
Fleece Wools Practically all medium
wools in the fleece wool States had been
sold and fine wool was out of the growers'
hands.
Territory Wools Occasional lots of
original bag bulkcflne, with some half-blood,
sold in Wyoming around $1.08 clean basis
delivered Boston. Grease prices in Montana,
Idaho and Oregon ranged from 381-45 5, f.o.b.
with original bag bulk half-blood, contain-
ing some fine and thiree-eighths was estimated
to cost from $1.07-1.12 clean basis, de-
livered. Bulk one-quarter blood Oregon
fleeces in original bags brought around $1.05-
1.07, delivered. A substantial volume of
bulk fine good French combing and staple wool
sold in Roswell, New Mexico $1.10-1.15 clean
basis, delivered Boston.
Texas Wools There were occasional
sales of best 12 months wool in Texas around
31.08-1.10 with average 12 months about
31.08, clean basis, delivered Boston. Eight
months wool was about cleaned up in Texas
with occasional sales ranging from P1.02-
1.05 clean basis, delivered East.
Mohair Trading on mohair in exas was
very slow.
Foreign Wools Interest in spot foreign
wool was limited. There was a very poor se-
lection of wools offered at the closing sales
in Australia. Quotations follow on combing
wools converted to clean U. S. oil-combed
yields, in bond.

THE LIVESTOCK AND MEAT SITUATION


Approved by the Outlook and Situation Board, June 30, 1960



SUMMARY

Hog production continues to decline, but a cyclical upturn in farrow-
ings seems likely next year. Farm cattle and sheep numbers are probably in-
creasing. The average price to farmers for beef cattle in June at 521.00 per
100 pounds was $2.80 below a year ago. Sheep and Lamb prices were a little
below those of last year, while hogs were higher.

The pig crop this spring was 16 percent smaller than that of 1959.
Since December-February farrowings were reduced relatively more than later
farrowings, hog slaughter this summer will be significantly smaller than last
year. Slaughter in the first 5 months averaged 6 percent above last year but
dropped below a year earlier in June. Hog prices at 8 central markets are
currently about $2.00 per 100 pounds above a year earlier.

The planned 4 percent cut in fall farrowings indicates a modest reduc-
tion in hog slaughter is likely next spring. If these intentions are realized
the total fall crop will be about 41.5 million head. Producers in 10 Corn Belt
States reported they planned to reduce early fall farrowings but to increase
late farrowings slightly. The intended number of sows for fall farrowings in
these States is 2 percent less than a year earlier--the result of 6 percent
fewer sows to farrow during June-August and 2 percent more in September-
November.

Cattle slaughter will likely continue above last year the rest of 1960
with gains in both fed and grass cattle. The number of cattle on feed April 1
was 8 percent above a year earlier, and the rate of marketing in the second
quarter indicates that a considerable number are still on hand. Marketings this
summer and fall probably will be somewhat larger than last year. Marketings
of grass cattle this fall will be seasonally large and above a year earlier.
Prices of fed cattle will likely decline moderately this summer and there is
little promise of much recovery this fall. Feeder cattle prices will weaken
seasonally this fall.

Commercial slaughter of sheep and lambs in January-April totaled 3 per-
cent less this year than last, but has been higher since. The average price to
producers for lambs in June at $19.90 per 100 pounds was up from last December
but $1.10 below June 1959. Lamb prices will probably decline seasonally this
summer and fall and prices will likely average a little below a year earlier.
Above average returns in lamb feeding last year, particularly for lambs fed
late in the season, may encourage feeders to put a higher proportion of this
year's lambs in feed lots this fall than last.
