MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers and heifers
were steady to ?5# higher at nidwest markets.
This was the third straight week of price up-
turns which have been prompted by moderate
.arketings. Slaughter cows were steady to 50#
higher at most points. Feeder cattle and
calves were largely steady. Hog receipts were
liberal at midwest terminals. Barrows and
gilts sold 25-50 lower at most centers with
sows 250-41.00 off. The trend on butchers
end sows in the interior Iowa-Southern Minne-
sota area was 10-150 lower. Butchers were 250
lower in Interior Illinois with sows 25-50#
off. Slaughter lambs sold weak to $1.00 lower
under the influence of liberal receipts and
sharp downturns in the carlot lamb trade.

SI.A.UPTER CATTLF AND CALVES Cattle re-
ceipts, although increased over last week's
holiday shortened period, were still of moder-
ate proportion. Prices for slaughter steers
ad heifers were steady to 254 higher. Cows
sold steady to 50# higher except steady to 500
lower at Kansas City and St. Joseph. Bulls
were steady to 504 higher and vealers were
steady. Advances for past three weeks have
pushed steer prices to new highs since last
February. I-oderate receipts during this three
week period have been instrumental in the up-
turns. Good and Choice steers and heifers pre-
dorinated in the run at most terminals.
Slaughter steers: Several loads Prime
1202-14f00 sold from $27.75-28.00 at Chicago
vhere Choice and Prime 950-1400'/ bulked at
"25.25-27.50. Vixed Choice and Prime ranged
from !p5.75-?7.00 at other midwest terminals
with most Choice $24.25-25.75 Good t22.75-
24.5?, Standard '21.00-23.0C.
Slaughter heifers: Mixed Choice and Prime

Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
'14.Ym-,16.50, Canner and Cutter *12.00-14,50.

FEEDR CATTLE AND CALVES Marketing of
feeder cattle and calves continued to decrease
as loveber drew to a close. The reduction in
nurbers was accompanied .by further deterio-
ration in quality at most terminal markets.
ood and Choice grades made up a fairly large
percent of over-all supplies but high-Choice
and mixed Choice and rancy, shipments were much
less in evidence than earlier in the month.
-tnough trading was only moderately active,
prices at midwest markets generally were main-
tained on a steady basis. Upturns in slaughter
cattle prices during the past fe:. weeks at some
rar'ets stimulated increased demand for fleshy
steers and moderate numbers of partly fattened,
two-way cattle were purchased for an additional
short turn in drylot feeding. However, demand


at the Kansas City market proved an exception as
steers over 80c0 at that center occasionally
sold 50f lower. At Oklahoma City, lichita and
Fort Worth prices were steady Lo 500 higher in
a reaction from a lower trend which developed at
Southwest markets the previous week.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050,/
brought %22.00-24.50, few Choice 800-850#
%24.75-25.00. At St. Joseph mixed Good and
Choice 1117/ went at C22.25. Good and Choice
550-7E50 sold from $23.00-26.50, several loads
Choice 568-575# $27.00-28.00. At Omaha three
loads Choice 7060 sold at ,26.25. Medium and
mixed Nedium and Good 550-700' brought. $19.50-

24.25. Choice 600# were included at $24.25
while Choice 472Y short yearlings reached
*25.75,
Feeder calves: Good and Choice steers
bulked at $25.00-30.00; few loads Choice and
mixed Choice and Fancy $30.50-33.60. Several
loads Choice 500-525/ brought 929.00-30.00.
Good and Choice heifers brought '22.00-29.00,
few Choice and Fancy t29.50-30.10.

HOGS Terminal markets Hog receipts were
sharply increased compared with the Thanksgiving
week and were 2 percent larger than the came
week a year ago. An increased proportion of the
barrows and gilts weighed 240-27Q/ as reflected
in the 34 increase in the average weight
of butchers at the eight. markets. The per-
centage of sows was little changed ranging from
8-13 percent at the various markets. Although
price trends were relatively varied throughout
the Corn Belt, declines were recorded at all
centers. Barrows and gilts were generally 25-
500 off, instances 1'l.00 lower at Omaha. Sows
declined 250-Z1.00. These price declines were
made in spite of a fairly broad shipper demand.
Barrows and gilts: U. S. 1-3, 190-250.
closed at .15.50-l6.00 at Western Corn Belt
centers with some No. 1-2, 190-230W Q15.75-
16.25. No. 1-3, 180-250'" in the eastern part
of the area sold largely from '16.00-16.75, No.
1-2, 190-225,? $16.35-17.25 and reached $17.50
at Indianapolis.
Sows: No. 1-3, 250-400W sows brought
13.50-14.75, No. 2-3, 400-600Q ]2.50-14.00.
Feeder pigs were steady to 500 higher at
Sioux City with Good offerings at $14.50-1.50.
At St. Paul prices were weak to 50 loIrer, Good
and Choice 14.50-15.00.
Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota re-
ceipts at 397,000 head were 9 percent more
than the previous week's holiday shortened run
and 19 percent larger than the corresponding
week last year. Early price declines were re-
covered at mid-week, but some weakness








developed late. Closing sales were 10-15#
d1wer on barrows and gilts; sows mainly 100
lower.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1-3 200-240# barrows
and gilts brought mostly $15.25-15.75, limited
volume mainly No. 1 ,15.75-16.25. U. S. 1-3
270-4001 sows 13.75-15.15; 400-5501 $12.25-
13.75.
Hogs Interior Illinois Demand was
fairly good. Early price declines on barrows
and gilts were recovered around midweek
followed by some late declines to leave closing
prices mostly 25# lower than last Friday. Sows
closed 25-500 lower.
Barrows and gilts: Most No. 1-3 190-220i
15.50-16.25, few 200-22C0 "16.25-16.50.
Sows: U. S. 1-3 250-40Q/ $.13.00-14.50.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts at the 12 termi-
nals totaled 113,000 head, 48 percent over the
holiday shortened period last week but little
changed from the same period last year. The
sharp increase in marketing combined with
lower carlot dressed lamb prices were important
factors influencing the weak to $1.00 lower
trend on slaughter lambs. Slaughter lambs
weighing 110. and heavier sold under pressure
at many points and frequently encountered the
most price downturn. Slaughter ewes were un-
evenly steady to C1.00 lower. Reduced receipts
of feeder lambs were mainly steady.
Slaughter lambs: Bulk Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime 80-110# wooled '.16.50-17.75 on

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic combing wools
in the Boston market was very slow, but prices
were about steady. An increased volume of
woolen wools sold, especially foreign woolen
wools for import. Noils continued dull at un-
changed prices. A sealed bid sale was held at
Casper, Wyoming on November 29 where approxi-
mately 540,000 pounds of original bag wools
were offered. Prices were strong and practical-
ly a total clearance was noted.
Midweek cables from Australia showed biyers
from Russia and the Continent dominating with
America buying moderately and Japan in limited
volume. Good clearances were reported in all
auctions. In South Africa, France and the
United States were the principal operators in
a firm market. Good general competition pre-
vailed in New Zealand at firm prices. In South
America carpet wools sold in limited volume for
American account while Japan and England were
operating in Montevideo with limited support
from American buyers at quotations held firm in
both centers.
The United States Department of Commerce
announced that the annual production of woolen
and worsted fabrics decreased in 1960 to 286
million linear yards from the 1959 output of 511
million linear yards. Production was 6 percent
above the 1958 level and 1 percent above the
1954 level, but 5 percent below the output in
1957. During 1960, looms in place at mills
primarily producing woolen and worsted fabrics
decreased by 5 percent to 12,875 looms.
Fleece Wools Little was done in the fleece
wool States but occasional spot lots of medium
fleece lambs wools sold in a range of 80-850
clean basis.
Territory Wools Trading on territory
wool was very limited in the local market.
Early reports from the sale at Casper, Wyoming
showed bulk fine wools in original bags brought
mostly around $1.18-1.20, bulk half-blood wools
around $1.13-1.15 and three-eighths around $1.06-
1.08 clean basis, delivered.
Texas Wools Small lots of fall ewes wool
sold in Texas in a range of 44-47#. Clean basis
prices were estimated around $1.00-1.01 de-
livered East while fall lambs wool at 482-504
grease basis, f.o.b. was estimated in a range of
$1.00-1.05 delivered.
Mohair Occasional lots of straight adult
mohair were sold in Texas at 800 to the ware-
house.
Foreign Wools Greasy super skirted Monte-
video 60/64s were sold for shipment at 98# while
greasy Buenos Aires 56/40s fleeces were priced
for shipment at 74-754 and November wools at
71)-72# clean fibers present for combing
purposes. Cabled reports at week's end follow
with combing wools converted to clean U. S.
oil-combed yields and short wools to souring
yields, in bond.
