MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers finished the week uneven-
ly steady to $1.00 lower, offerings over 1250#
off most. At Chicago high-Good to Prime 1250#
and heavier sold $1.00-2.00 lower. The decline
generally erased the upturn scored the previous
week when prices registered their first weekly
advance since late March. Heifers were steady
to 254 lower. Cows were steady to 50 higher
with exceptions at St. Louis and Sioux Falls
where prices were steady to 500 lower. In de-
cided contrast to slaughter cattle, stockers
and feeders were steady to 500 higher. Barrows
and gilts generally sold 25-750 lower. Sows
steady to 750 lower. In the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area barrows and gilts were
steady to 250 lower, sows 50-750 lower. At
Chicago and also at Denver spring slaughter
lambs were steady to 500 higher but elsewhere
steady to 500 lower, extremes 750-$1.00 off.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers sold unevenly steady to $1.00 lower at
most midwest terminals. Generally a large part
of the previous week's advance was erased. At
most points high-Good to Prime steers over
1250# underwent the sharpest downturn and at
Chicago such cattle were $1.00-2.00 lower.
Standard and low-Good steers showed least de-
cline. Heifers found a more reliable demand
than steers and sold steady to 25 lower. A
relatively narrow price range covered most
sales of steers and heifers with heifers sell-
ing as high or higher than steers over 120C0
on a grade.for-grade basis. Good steers under
1100# often sold at the same price as Choice
and Prime 1500# and heavier. At Chicago Prime
steers reached a new five-year-low. At most
markets cows were steady to 500 higher but at
St. Louis and Sioux Falls were weak to 50
lower. Bulls were steady to strong. At St.
Louis vealers were steady but at So. St. Paul,
steady to $1.00 lower. Receipts at 12 midwest
terminals were increased 25 percent over the
holiday shortened period the previous week and
this together with a steady to $1.00 lower
trend on steer beef prompted declines in the
live trade. Heifer beef was steady to 500
higher. Weight has become a major price deter-
mining factor in the market for slaughter
steers. Relatively moderate supplies of Good
and Choice 500-700# steer carcasses tended to
broaden the outlet for heifer beef and both
classes sold in virtually the same price range
while heavier steer carcasses were discounted.
Bulk Choice steers sold from $21.00-25.00;
few high-Choice under 1250# $25.25-24.00 while
Choice and mixed Choice and Prime 1500-1600#/
occasionally were included at $21.00-22.00.
In Chicago, Prime and mixed Choice and Prime
1050-1500# ranged $21.50-26.00, little above
$25.00 late. Choice heifers brought $22.00-
23.25 high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime


$25.00-24.00. Good steers and heifers sold
from $20.50-22.00. Utility and Commercial cows
brought $15.50-17.50; Canner and Cutter
$14.50-17.00.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Early June marketing of stocker and feeder
cattle and calves were larger than during the
holiday shortened period the previous week but
even so were very moderate as usual during
this time of year. A relatively large percent
of supplies consisted of Medium and Good offer-
ings while numbers of Choice grade were propor-
tionately reduced. Stock calves were in very
moderate supply with loadlots of Choice scarce.
Demand was good and prices ruled unevenly
steady to 500 higher with Good and Choice
calves and yearlings in stocker flesh usually
showing most strength. At some markets
limited numbers were a factor influencing a
stronger trend. The over-all price trend con-
tradicted some factors which normally tend
to have an important influence on price levels.
For example, the market on slaughter steers
again was enveloped in bearishness and as far
as demand for cattle to place on grass was con-
cerned, the season is now far enough along to
normally have dispelled much of the urgency
for cattle to fill pastures.
Scattered shipments Choice 550-600# stock
steers brought $26.50-28.00; bulk Good and
Choice 550-750# $22.00-26.00. Several lots
Choice 675-700# were included at $26.00.
Medium and lowaGood stockers sold from $19.00-
25.50. Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder
steers bulked at $20.00-23.00, limited number
Choice 750-825# $25.50-24.50; at Omaha,Choice,
partly fattened, 890# $22.00 and So. St. Paul
Choice, fleshy, 980# $21.00. Good and Choice
yearling heifers ranged $20.00-24.75, load
Choice fleshy 664# included at $22.00. Good
and Choice steer calves ranged from $24.00-
30.00, limited number heifer calves of the
same grades $22.00-26.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Salable re-
ceipts of hogs at twelve markets numbered
559,000, an expansion of 25 percent over
the holiday shortened period of the previous
week. Supplies were 5 percent larger than
the corresponding week a year ago. Shipments
190-270# barrows and gilts of mixed No. 1,2
and 5 grades comprised bulk of the offerings.
A major share of the butcher hogs at the
Western Cornbelt Markets fell in a 210-27C0
weight range. Uniform lots of U. S. 1-2, 190-
210# were relatively scarce. A substantial
number of No. 2-3, 260-300# arrived at many of
the centers. There was a further increase in
marketing of sows, that class making up 7 to
25 percent at the various points. Order buyers
were fairly aggressive throughout the area with







those interests taking 60 percent of the supply
at Indianapolis and :5-;'0 percent of the run at
several of the other markets. Order buyer de-
mand centered on 130-2305 barrows and gilts but
their buy also included a moderate number of
sows. Prices throughout the area worked uneven-
ly lower. Increased receipts and lower whole-
sale prices on some cuts were factors influ-
encing the decline in the live trade. Barrows
and gilts finished the period largely 25-750
lower except steady to 254 lower at Sioux City.
Sows closed steady to 750 lower, mainly 25-75f
off.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1, and 1-2, 180-2401
barrows and gilts bulked at $16.50-17.35, up to
817.50 at Chicago and few No. 1 $17.75 at
Indianapolis. Mixed No. 1-5, and including lots
of predominantly 2-3, 1PO-25C0 had an extreme
range of 816.00-17.25, most sales $16.25-17.00.
U. S. 1-3, 27C-600C sows brought $12.50-14.75,
some No. 1-2, 250-3O(L $15.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows and
gilts was 86# per cwt. based on wholesale carlot
prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago June 1 to
June 7 inclusive.
Feeder pig prices held steady at Sioux City
but declined 50# at South St. Paul where Good
and Choice 130-160Q offerings brought $15.50-
16.00 while same grades 130-17C0 at Sioux City
sold from $15.00-16.00.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled 297,00 com-
pared to 284,000 last week and 285,000 a year
ago. Prices worked lower but a mild advance
Friday left closing sales only steady to 25#
lower on barrows and gilts compared with the
previous Friday. Sows sold mostly 50# to 75#
lower, and comprised around 12 percent of total
receipts.
On Friday, U. S. 1-3 and 2-3 200-220# bar-
rows and gilts, including some 190-240# in a few
sections, sold at $15.75-16.50 and limited No. 1
and 2 selected lots $16.25-16.75. U. S. 1-3
270-400? sows $13.25-15.00; 400-550# $12.00-
13.90.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the twelve
markets totaled 98,000 head, 27 percent over the
holiday shortened period last week and 16 per-
cent over a year ago. Spring slaughter lambs
predominated in the receipts at most terminals.
Expanded lamb receipts and lower wholesale
dressed prices affected live prices. Spring and
old crop slaughter lambs at most markets were
steady to mostly 504 lower, instances 75#-$1.00
off; Chicago and Denver exceptions and steady
to 50# higher. Slaughter ewes were mostly
steady to 50# lower. Feeder lambs were ex-
tremely uneven, steady to $1.00 higher at a few
central cornbelt markets but $1.00 lower at So.
St. Paul.

Receipts in the Interior Iowa-Southern
Minnesota area numbered 15,200 head, little
different from a week earlier but 15 percent
over last year. Lower prices prevailed for
the moderate numbers marketed. For the week
all represented slaughter classes were weak to
mostly 50# lower. Seasonally increased market-
ings of spring lambs comprised about one-half
the slaughter lamb supply.
On Friday, Choice and Prime 80-95# spring
slaughter lambs sold from $17.50-18.50, a
limited showing of high-yielding lambs $18.50-
19.50 with the latter price paid only in one

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Prices on steer and cow
beef were steady to $1.00 higher mostly 500-$1.00
higher, veal steady at New York, Philadelphia
steady to $1.00 up, other eastern seaboard cen-
ters mainly $1.00-2.00 lower; lamb largely steady,
however, some lots at New York $1.00 higher,
and Baltimore $1.00 lower. Pork loins sold $1i00-
3.00 off, spareribs mostly $1.00-3.00 higher,
other pork cuts steady.
Prices for kosher dressed steer beef were
500-$1.00 lower and kosher spring lamb foresad-
dles sold mostly $1.00 lower, kosher veal was un-
changed.
Supplies of most railstocks and pork were
moderate to normal. Retailer demand was good for
bulk steer carcasses and cuts with trading mod-
erately active. However, steer arm chucks moved
slowly at most markets. The small volume of cow
beef sold readily and supplies were smaller
than some retail requirements. Very limited
buyer interest was shown for veal carcasses and
cuts and clearance was generally poor. The small
percentage of loin and rib lamb cuts were in
good demand but other cuts and particularly car-
casses sold slowly. Outlet was only fair for
pork.Boston butts, fresh skinned hams and spare-
ribs found a more reliable outlet than loins.
Beef was widely featured at the retail level in
the New York area and trading was moderately
active throughout on all sessions, with clear-
ance generally good.

CHICAGO Beef sold steady to 500 lower,
veal $1.00-2.00 lower, lamb steady, pork loins
8-16# $3.00-3.50 lower, Boston butts 4-8# $1.00-
1.50 lower, spareribs 3# and down $2.50-3.00
higher.
Beef, lamb and fresh pork supplies were
only moderate, veal small but all classes ade-
quate for trade needs in most instances. Beef
and lamb supplies were mostly Good and Choice
grades.
Carcass beef prices worked lower in a gen-
erally slow trade, slightly improved action
coming after mid-week. Beef hindquarters, rounds
and loins were good moving items, while on the
other hand forequarters and equivalent cuts were
slow. Arm and square cut chucks sold as much as
$2.00 lower. Veal followed a lower trend in a
generally slow trade. -Demand moderate for car-
cass lamb, and good for ribs and loins of primal
cuts, but legs were particularly slow. All in-
terests were active in the trade for spareribs
pushing prices to their highest level since
early August 1960, this being the first time
this year ribs sold higher than pork loins. A
moderately active trade for pork loins and Bos-
ton butts on the initial session slowed, loins
registering daily declines.


PACIFIC COAST Steer and heifer beef sold
steady to 500 higher with reduced supplies the
main strengthening factor. Cow beef was steady
to $1.00 lower. Veal and calf sold steady in
California but $1.00-5.00 lower in the Northwest.
Spring lamb sold steady to $1.00 higher in Cali-
fornia, but 50O-$1.00 lower in the Northwest;
fresh pork items steady to $1.00 higher, except
steady to $1.00 lower in San Francisco. The
main exception was spareribs which sold $1.00-
3.00 higher in California and steady to $1.00
higher in the Northwest.
Steer and heifer beef supplies were moder-
ate to light, demand fairly good, trading moder-
ately active; cow in normal supply, demand mod-
erate, trading slow; veal and calf supply in-
creased in the Northwest but near seasonal nor-
mal; veal scarce in California but calf over 275#
plentiful in Los Angeles. Demand was poor and
trading dull in Northwest but demand and trading
moderate in California. Supply of spring lamb
abundant, demand moderate in California but
rather poor in Northwest, trading usually slow.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic worsted wools was
very slow in the Boston market, and prices were
held generally unchanged. Activity in the fleece
and territory States was very slow with a con-
tinued turnover in Texas at firm prices.
Cabled reports from Australia showed a good
selection of top making merinos at Brisbane as
Eastern Europe and Japan dominated in a firm
market. At Adelaide the selection was mainly
warp staple wools with Japan the principal oper-
ator and supported by the Continent and China.
There was keen and general competition at Well-
ington, New Zealand, as the market closed strong.
The South American markets continued dull.
Fleece Wools Results from additional Penn-
sylvania county pools of medium wools follow:
Bucks-Montgomery 40,000# at 55.370, Cumberland
80,000# 55.164, Centre 25,000# 53.200, North-
hampton 21,000# 54.110, Bradford 34,000# 55.120
and Wayne 11,500# 54.81*. Country buyers were
paying around 45* in Missouri, Illinois and Iowa
and about 50* for light shrinking wools with a
percentage of fine and half blood in Kentucky.
Practically all medium wools in Ohio and Penn-
sylvania were out of the growers' hands.
Territory Wools Recent sales in Montana
included the Glasgow pool of about 60,000# of
fine and half blood at 40.00, the Townsend pool
of approximately 60,000# fine and half blood at
41.69*, while around Melville 15,000# of fine,
half and three-eights was estimated to cost clean
about $1.15 delivered East. In the Lewiston
area, fine and half blood original bag wools
brought 40.0* and in Ingomar 8,000# of fine and
half blood sold at 42.0*. In eastern Oregon
bulk quarter blood range wool sold at 480 grease
basis, while other range clips moved in a range
of 42.5-46.0*. These were bulk fine wools with
some half and three-eighths. Medium grade Oregon
farm wools sold at 42-430 to the growers, while
valley Oregon wools brought 43-45*, while a small
clip of light shrinking wool brought up to 52#.
Around Lovell, Wyoming 15,000# fine and half
blood sold at 40.0* grease basis. Original bag
Navajo wools sold recently in Arizona and New
Mexico ranging from 300 to 340 grease basis FOB.
Texas Wools A substantial volume of
graded staple 12 months Sonora wools sold around
$1.28-1.29 clean basis Boston, while graded
French combing moved around $1.21-1.22. Original
bag 12 months wools sold in a range of $1.20-1.25
but mostly $1.20-1.22, while bulk average French
combing brought around $1.17-1.19 clean basis
delivered East.
Mohair The mohair market continued very
dull.
Foreign Wools Trade in spot wools con-
tinued dormant. A greasy Buenos Aires November
second clip wool sold for shipment around 77-78*
clean fibers present. Foreign markets closed
very firm with no change in prices. New Zealand


auctions closed the regular season at Welling-
ton on June 7. Crutchings sales commence at
Wellington and Wanganui on July 27. 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.
