MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW
and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices advanced on slaughter steers and
heifers for the fourth consecutive week. The
general trend on steers was 25-750 higher for
the week with heifers strong to 500 up. Moder-
ate cattle receipts along with further upturns
in the dressed beef trade prompted the advance.
Slaughter cows were steady to 500 higher al-
though sales were steady to 500 lower at Kan-
sas City and steady to 250 off at St. Joseph.
Stockers and feeders were steady to 500 higher.
Barrows and gilts were 25-750 lower at most
midwest markets despite reduced supplies.
Higher dressed lamb prices influenced 25-500
upturns on slaughter lambs at most centers.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Terminal
market supplies proved smaller than a year ago
for the fourth consecutive week, and slaughter
steers sold steady to higher, also for the
fourth straight week. Prices were unevenly
steady to $1.25 higher, mostly 25-7S5 higher,
with the 254-$1.25 advance in Chicago the
greatest for any week in two months and prices
were the highest since early June. At several
other points steers sold the highest since May
owing to continuing moderate receipts coupled
with further upturns in wholesale dressed beef
prices. An extremely narrow price spread con-
tinued to be a major feature of the market,
the spread in Chicago becoming the narrowest
'in 15 years as Prime steers showed less advance
than other grades. Heifers sold at unevenly
steady to 75S higher prices, advancing mostly
25-00. Cows sold steady to 500 higher except
steady to 500 lower at Kansas City and steady
to 250 off at St. Joseph. The percentage of
Prime steers in Chicago receipts at 8.5 percent
was somewhat smaller than in recent weeks, but
still large for this time of year. Good to
high-Choice steers predominated in receipts at
most points but the percentage of slaughter
steers and heifers was down slightly with a
small increase in the percentage of stockers
and feeders. Vealers were active and strong
at St. Louis but weak to $1.00 lower in St.
Paul.
Two loads Prime 1309# slaughter steers
reached $24.25 in Chicago, while 2 loads high-
Choice and Prime 1223# steers at $24.00 at
St. Louis represented the highest price at that
market since mid-May. Bulk Choice steers
$21.50-23.50, Good largely $21.00-22.75. Buy-
ers discriminated less against heavy steers
than at any time in weeks, yet Good steers
under lO10#.etill sold as high as Choice and
Prime over 1350# in many cases. Mixed Choice
and Prime heifers reached $23.50, bulk Good
and Choice $20.00-23.25 with Choice largely
$21.75-23.25. Utility and Commercial cows
$14.00-16.50, Canner and Cutter $11.50-15.50,
mostly $12.50-15.00.


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Continued good pasture conditions over much of
the important grazing lands of the southwest
tended to slow marketing of stockers and feed-
ers from those areas. Thus, early August re-
ceipts at terminal markets showed only a slight
increase even though receipts at one or two of
the northern Missouri River markets again in-
cluded some shipments from the dry areas as well
as a continued moderate flow of cattle from
Canada. Over-all quality was little different
than the previous week, Medium to low-Choice
grades predominated. Trading generally was
fairly active at steady to 500 higher prices.
This marked the third consecutive week of a
stronger trend. Slaughter cattle prices ad-
vanced materially during the same three-week
period and this, along with better than average
mid-summer pasture conditions in many locali-
ties and abundant supplies of dry feeds has
prompted a more aggressive demand for stgAkers
and feeders. However, buyers still were mindful
of the persistent bearishness which earlier in
the year had characterized demand for slaughter
cattle and often were inclined to proceed rather
cautiously.
Scattered shipments Choice 800-875# feeder
steers brought $23.50-23.75; bulk Good and
Choice 800-1000# $21.00-23.00. Demand for feed-
ers over 1000# was still relatively narrow but
at Sioux City four loads Choice 1034-llh3#
turned at $22.25-23.00. Good and Choice 500-
700# stock steers bulked at $22.50-25.50, few
$26.00-26.25, load Choice 581# included at
$26.10. Medium and low-Good stockers ranged
$19.00-23.00. Good and Choice yearling heifers
sold chiefly from $21.00-2.00, several loads
500-550# $24.25-25.00. Good and Choice 300-500#
steer calves brought *23.50-29.00, few Choice
200-300# $30.00-33.00. Good and Choice heifer
calves bulked $22.00-25.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Nineteen dollar
hogs faded from the scene at all of the leading
terminal markets early in the week as a sharply
lower dressed pork trade outweighed any bullish-
ness that might come from seasonally small re-
ceipts. Butchers weighing below 200# comprised
an increased percentage of the over-all market-
ings and were often ignored by order buyers who
much preferred the more mature hogs which could
hold their weight better in the long distances
involved in shipping. Despite the fact that
there were more young lightweight hogs around,
some points, and particularly St. Paul received
an increased percentage of sows when it had pre-
viously appeared that marketing of that class
were diminishing. About 30 percent of St.Paul's
offerings consisted of sows, 29 percent` at Oaaha
and 32 percent at Sioux City. After consistent-
ly declining on the first three days of the week,









barrows and gilts showed a tendency to level
off on Thursday and then rallied sharply at
several of the markets Friday with butchers
reaching $19.00 at Omaha and Sioux City on that
day and $19.25 at Sioux Falls.
Compared with the previous week's close,
barrows and gilts sold steady to 754 lower,
weights below 200# and particularly under 1S0#
being as much as $1.00 lower and in extremes
$1.50. Butchers weighing above 270#, which
were in very small supply selling mostly steady.
This was a reflection of the excellent demand
for sows which sold largely steady. Sows weigh-
ing above 400# were in broad demand.
U. S. No. 1-2, 200-240# barrows and gilts
sold at 418.25-19.00 on the close, and as pre-
viously related reached 419.25 at Sioux Falls.
Mixed U. S. 1-3, 190-260# sold at $17.75-18.2$.
Bulk No. 1-3 300-400# sows $14.25-16.50, few
No. 1 around 300# to $17.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 87t per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
July 27 to August 2, 1961, inclusive.
Feeder pigs declined $1.00-1.50 at St.
Paul with Good and Choice at $15.50-16.00. At
Sioux City feeder pigs were weak with Good and
Choice at k16.00-16.50, few $17.00.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled 244,000 head,
or below any week since last July. Barrows and
gilts under 220# made up about two-thirds of
the butcher supply and sows around 17 percent
of total receipts. Demand was fairly good by
Interior packers while shipping orders for hogs
to go West and South were broad but only fair
to poor for eastern shipment. Prices moved
gradually downward as a reflection of lower
prices in the wholesale fresh pork trade. Bar-
rows and gilts declined 30-650 for the week,
while sows were steady to 100 lower. On Fiday,
mixed No. 1-3 200-2J)# barrows and gilts sold
from $16.75-17.65 with a small volume No. 1 and
2 17.25-18.00. No. 1-3 270-400# sows brought
$14.00-16.00, o00-550# $12.10-14.00.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
markets totaled 72,000 head compared with 66,000
last week and 77,000 a year ago. Spring slaugh-
ter lambs comprised the bulk of receipts at most
markets. Approximately 15 percent of the runs
at Denver and Fort Worth were feeders. Good
demand and higher prices for lamb at Eastern
wholesale centers proved a stimulant to the
live market and prices advanced in spite of a
slight increase in receipts. Spring slaughter
lambs were unevenly steady to $1.50 higher,
mostly 25-500 up. Shorn slaughter ewes sold
mostly steady to 50f lower, feeder lambs mainly
steady, instances 500 higher.
Choice and Prime 80-112# spring slaughter
lambs sold from $17.00-19.00 with numerous late
sales $18.00-19.00. At Denver, Choice and
Prime 84-99# San Luis Valley lambs closed at


$18.75-19.30. Good and Choice lambs bulked at
i.5.00-17.50 with a few Choice to 418.00 and
few Good h14.00-15.00. Choice and Prime shorn
No. 1-3 pelt spring slaughter lambs cleared at
a17.00-17.75, Good and Choice 75-136' $15.00-
17.00. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes
sold from 42.00-4.50.
Good and Choice 50-85# spring feeder lambs
sold from 4-1.50-14.50 with some Choice and
Fancy 73-85# western feeders $14.25-15.00.
Receipts in the Interior Iowa-Southern
Minnesota area of 8,100 head were 16 percent
less than the previous week and 45 percent less
than year ago. Closing prices were steady on
all classes.
On Friday, Choice spring slaughter lambs
80-105# delivered to packing plants sold at
$16.50-17.50 with liberal share at $17.00 and a
few high-yielding Choice and Prime lambs
brought $17.25-18.00. Good to Choice 80-110#
lambs sold from $14.50-16.50. Cull to Good
shorn slaughter ewes ranged $1.50-3.50.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
steady to $1.00 higher, mostly 504-$1.00 up; cow
beef steady to weak; veal and calf steady to
$1.00 lower; spring lamb $1.00-2.00 higher at
New York while other markets were mostly $1.00-
2.00 lower. Pork loins declined $1.00-7.00,
bulk off $2.00-3.00 with the major drop at Phila-
delphia; other pork cuts steady to $2.00 higher
except spareribs at New York $1.00 lower.
Kosher steer forequarters closed 504 higher;
spring lamb steady to $2.00 up; the upturns
recorded late in the week; veal and calf uneven
mostly steady.
General movement of fresh meats improved
this week with over-all clearance the best in
several weeks. Receipts were mostly normal, but
in-shipments were on conservative side at larger
markets, in fact lamb and pork were short of re-
quirements at New York. Early trading was slow;
however, good activity prevailed from mid-period
to close and virtually all outlets absorbed
normal tonnage of all classes. Beef forequarters
and related primal cuts outsold hindquarters
while lamb ribs and loins moved most readily in
that division. Beef and calf demand was fairly
balanced with supply. Pork was very unsettled
up to midweek when trading turned fairly active
under moderately broad demand.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold 50o-
$1.00 higher; veal steady to $1.00 lower; spring
lamb steady; pork loins 8-16# $2.50-3.50 lower;
Boston butts 4-8# $1.00-1.50 higher and spareribs
steady.
Supplies of beef and spring lamb were normal;
the Choice grade predominant in beef, and the
supply of spring lamb under 50# was liberal. Veal
and fresh pork were in moderate volume but ade-
quate with most pork loins in the 8-12# range.
The wholesale carcass beef trade was only
moderately active. Arm and squarecut chucks,
rounds and ribs up to 35# moved well at higher
rates and tended to have a bullish influence on
the carcass trade. Veal was slow through mid-
week and downturns were recorded; however, some
interest developed late and some strength was
noted. Spring lamb was in moderate demand. Lamb
loins, stews and shoulders were readily absorbed,
while on the other hand ribs and legs were on the
slow side. Boston butts 4-8# enjoyed good clear-
ance, pork loins and spareribs rather slow with
loins lower each session.

PACIFIC COAST Steer beef sold strong to
$1.00 higher in California and held steady in
the Northwest; cow beef steady to 500 higher


with the advance limited to Los Angelde.
Calf and veal prices were steady to $1.00
lower in the Northwest with volume sales $2.00
lower in Seattle and mostly steady in Cali-
fornia. Fresh pork sold steady in California
except for a $3.00 to $4.00 decline on loins
at San Francisco; most fresh cuts $l.00-3.00
lower in the Northwest. Cured pork was
generally steady to $2.00 higher, while bacon
sold $1.00-4.00 higher.
Beef supplies were moderate to adequate
for.a fair demand, with Good and Choice 700-
800# steer in the Northwest still somewhat
short of the demand. Other meats were mostly
ample for a fair to good demand, but the
supply of pork was limited in the Los Angeles
area.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

MIDWEST CARLOT DRESSED "EAT SUY'ARY -
Steer beef sold 50f-$1.00 higher; heifer beef

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading of greasy domestic worsted wools
in the Boston market amounted to approximately
11 cars as spot stocks were somewhat limited.
Demand was about evenly divided between fine
and medium wools as prices held firm. Turnover
of woolen wools and noils improved and were
about steady.
Activity in the territory States was slow
with attention of local dealers centering on
the sealed bid sale at Albuquerque, New Mexico
commencing August 1 through August 5. On the
first day approximately 24,000 pounds of im-
proved Navajo wools were moved and about 44,000
pounds of 12 months wools were sold. A poor
selection was offered early at this sale with
better wools to be shown later in the week.
Trading in Texas and in the fleece wool States
was very slow.
In the foreign markets occasional carpet
wool types were sold in Buenos Aires and some
scoured lambs wool were purchased in Montevideo
for shipment to the United States. At the
second crutchings sale held at Napier, New
Zealand, prices remained unchanged.
Fleece Wools Graded 64/70s good French
combing and staple fleece wool sold at $1.20
clean basis while graded 56/58 staple and good
Frefich combing brought $1.04-and 50/54s staple
fleeces moved at $1.02 clean.
Territory Wools Graded 60/62s good French
combing and staple wool sold at $1.12-1.14 while
graded 56/58s staple and good French combing
brought $1.07-1.08 clean basis.
RANGE SALES FOLLOW: At the sealed bid sale
held at Albuquerque, New Mexico, original bag
average style bulk fine wool sold at 35-37#
grease basis, f.o.b. and was estimated to cost
clean from $1.07-1.15. Approximately 24,000
pounds of improved Navajo wools sold at 41#
grease basis, f.o.b.
Mohair Spring adult mohair sold in Texas
at 88t to the warehouse while a little contract-
ing of fall mohair brought 81| for adult and
$1.11i for kid mohair to the warehouse. Shear-
ing of the fall clip had commenced and the tempo
is expected to increase. The local mohair mar-
ket was dormant with new business about at a
standstill.
Foreign Wools Spot foreign wools were
slow to move with limited supplies. Forward
sales of Cape wools were made at prices 2# below
the following quotation. Cabled reports at,
week's end follow with combing wools converted
to clean U. S. oil-combed yields, in bond.
