MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers and heifers
were steady to 50 higher at midwest markets
under the influence of moderate receipts. In-
creased marketing of slaughter cows sold
steady to 500 lower. Demand continued broad
for the seasonally large volume of feeder
cattle and calves and prices were generally
steady. Barrows and gilts declined 25-50f
over most of the Corn Belt as combined market-
ings at the 12 terminals and in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area reached 796,600,
the largest for any week since January 1960
with the Interior accounting for the big bulge
in receipts. Sows sold steady to 75f lower.
Slaughter lambs were generally strong to 50O
higher under the influence of reduced supplies
and higher dressed lamb prices.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Reduced
supplies of slaughter steers and heifers for
the past two weeks have influenced price ad-
vances on both dressed meat and live cattle.
At midwest terminal markets, slaughter steers
and heifers sold steady to 500 higher for the
week in review. The average selling price of
beef steers out of first hands at Chicago at
$24.73 was the highest for any week since last
April. A seasonal increase in cows along with
lower dressed cow beef resulted in a steady to
E0S lower live trade. Bulls were also steady
to 500 lower and vealers were steady. Twelve
market receipts were slightly below the pre-
vious week and 8 percent below a year ago.
Good and Choice continued to make up the bulk
of the steer supply but most centers received
loadlots of mixed Choice and Prime with Choice
predominating at Chicago. Price spreads on
all grades were rather narrow as weight and
dressing percentage were very important as
price determining factors.
Slaughter steers: A dozen loads Prime
1250-1355W brought $26.25 at Chicago with bulk
Choice and Prime 950-14001 $24.25-26.00. At
other midwest centers mixed Choice and Prime
1050-1550# $25.00-26.00. Six loads Choice with
Prime end averaging 1725# $22.75 at Chicago.
Choice 900-1300# at markets along the Missouri
River bulked at $25.50-24.75 Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime 1350-1685# 622.50-24.25. Most
Good at all Corn Belt centers $22.50-23.50,
Standard $20.50-22.50.
Slaughter heifers: Mixed Choice and Prime
t24.00-24.25, instances $24.50. Choice brought
$22.75-24.00, bulk Good $21.50-22.50,Standard
$19.00-21.25.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
sold from $14.50-16.00, Canner and Cutter
$11.50-14.50.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets


continued seasonally large. Marketing of year-
ling and two-year-old cattle were not quite as
large as during several previous weeks this
season but the movement of calves expanded to
the largest volume thus far this year. The
supply of calves at Sioux City was the largest
for that market for any week in 25 years. How-
ever, some markets continued to receive only
moderate numbers of calves and as a result total
marketing of this class were little different
than a year ago. Sizable numbers of high-Choice
and mixed Choice and Fancy calves and yearlings
were on display. Although large volume fall
marketing are headed into the final weeks of
the 1961 season, supplies as yet have shown
little evidence of deterioration in over-all
quality such as usually is seen during the final
clean-up stages. Trading at midwest markets
was somewhat uneven but for the most part was
fairly active and generally showed very little
departure from a steady basis. Principal excep-
tion was at Kansas City where yearling and two-
year-old cattle were strong to 500 higher in a
reaction from an isolated decline at that market
the previous week.
Feeder steers: Bulk Good and Choice 800-
105SQ $22.00-24.25; Medium and low-Good 750-
950# $20.00-22.00. Several loads Choice 775-
825- brought $24.50-25.25. At Omaha 7 loads
Choice 1099W sold at $23.50 and one load Choice
1181# at $22.50. A few Choice 500-600# went
from $27.00-28.00; bulk Good and Choice 550-
750-/ $23.00-26.50; Medium and mixed Medium and
Good 550-750? $20.00-23.50.
Feeder heifers: Moderate supplies of Good
and Choice 525-725# S21.00-24.50, mostly $22.00.
24.25 with a few 550# reaching $25.50.
Feeder calves: Many Choice and Fancy 300-
450# steers brought $31.00-34.00, moderate num-
ber $34.50-36.00 and at Omaha 1 load 315# $37.00.
Other steers of Good and Choice grades ranged
$24.00-30.50. Good and Choice heifers bulked
$23.00-28.00, few loads Choice and Fancy 300-
450# $28.50-31.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hogs moved to
market in a substantial volume with receipts at
the 12 terminals 6 percent above the previous
week and 5 percent more than the corresponding
week of a year ago. The run numbered 349,000
head and was the largest for any week since
April. The step-up in marketing was largely
seasonal. However, weather was unfavorable for
field work and proved to be a factor as produc-
ers turned their attention to marketing hogs.
No. 1-3 190-260# barrows and gilts again predom-
inated, but there wa some increase in 250-270#
offerings, and the average weight at many points
was a few pounds heavier. Weight became a more
important price determining factor and, as a
result, some widening developed in price spreads.






839


In fact, price pressure became quite severe on
butcher hogs over 240# late in the week at
many centers. Sows arrived in seasonally small
numbers, and comprised around 6 II percent
of the supply. The increase in receipts along
with a lower wholesale trade on some cuts had a
depressing effect on live prices.
Barrows and gilts finished the period
largely 25-504 lower. Sows closed steady to
755 lower at most centers.
Barrows and gilts: Late in the week No.
1 5, 190-260# sold at $15.75-16.50 and up to
$16.85 at Indianapolis. U. S. 1-2, 190-24C0
brought largely $16.25-16.75, sizable shipment
U. S. 1, 219# $17.25 at Indianapolis.
Sows: U. S. 1-5, 270-400# $14.00-15.50;
No. 2-3, 400-6001 $15,00-14.50.
Feeder pigs held steady at Sioux City but
declined 500 at St. Paul. Good and Choice 150-
160Cs offerings sold at $15.00-15.50 at both
markets.
Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
receipts at 448,000 head were largest of the
season with the supply s8 percent larger than
in the preceding week and 19 percent more than
in the like period a year ago. Marketings in-
cluded a moderate increase in the proportion of
barrows and gilts over 230#C Sows comprised an
estimated 9 of receipts. Prices were gener-
ally 25-500 lower for the week with the full
decline on weights over 240# in several parts
of the area. Sows were fully 254 lower, in-
stances 500 off on weights under 3350.
On Friday, U.S. No. 1-5 200-24O barrows
and gilts brought $15.25-15.75, moderate volume
No. 1-2 C15.75-16.00, few mostly No. 1 200-
220# $16.15. No. 1-3 270-40Q0 sows brought
$13.75-15.40; 400-55'0 mostly $12.25-14.00.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
terminals totaled 104,000 head, around 12 per-
cent less than previous week but 5 percent
more than a year ago. Wooled lambs comprised
bulk of lamb supply, although shorn lambs
accounted for 50 percent of slaughter lambs
at Sioux City. Slaughter ewes and feeder
lambs were in small volume at most markets,
however, feeder lambs made up 65 percent of
the run at Denver. Reduced receipts and higher
dressed lamb prices at most wholesale centers
had a bullish influence on the live market.
Closing prices on slaughter lambs were strong
to 504 higher at most markets with some sales
$1.00 up. The 50-75f lower trend at Denver
was an exception. Slaughter ewes sold mostly
steady to 504 higher. Feeder lambs met fairly
good demand at mostly steady prices, some sales
500 higher.
Slaughter lambs: Choice and Prime 90-114#
wooled $16.50-18.00, most late sales $17.00-
18.00. At Denver, several loads Choice to

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS T1FA: C.ARLOT MEAT TRADE R'VIE'.W1

EASTER:T SEABCARD Prices for steer car-
casses were mainly steady, however, some lots
50e up at (ashington and Philadelphia; cow beef
steady to 504 lower; veal unchanged; lamb steady
to S2.00 higher, the major advance recorded at
New York, but the trend at Baltimore was $1.00-
3.00 lower; pork loins sold steady at New York,
other points steady to S3.00 off, major portion
t2.00 lower; Boston butte and fresh skinned
hams steady; spareribs steady to $2.00 lower.
Prices were fully steady to strong for
selected lots of kosher steer beef, however,
some forequ'rters were S1.00 lower. Quotations
for kosher veal, cnlf and lamb were unchanged.
Supplies of steer beef, veal, calf and pork
were normal; cow beef small to moderate; lamb
moderate to mostly normal. In the steer beef
division, retailers showed preference for fore-
quarters and demand was broad, but outlet was
poor for hindquarters. Trading was moderately
active for cow beef and veal, while calf car-
cassee -ind cuts sold slowly at New York. Demand
for lamb was broad and clearance was normal
along the Eastern Seabonrd. Pork loins and
other pork cuts cleared well in a moderately
active trade. moderate e supplies of steer hind-
quarters were unsold late at most markets.

CHICAGO The week's trend on steer and
heifer beef was 504-$1.00 higher, veal steady,
lamb fully 50 higher. Pork loins were'500-
S2.50 lower, full decline on 12-16#, Boston
butts $1.00-1.50 higher, spareribs $1.50 lower.
All classes of fresh meat were in normal
volume, bulk in the beef division grading Choice.
Largest percentage of lamb carcasses weighed
35-45#, 50-65# relatively scarce. Pork loins
12-16# most plentiful.
Carcass beef trade was generally moderately
active. Fair demand prevailed for forequarters,
chucks and ribs on each session, rounds clear-
ing fairly well from Tuesday on, chucks showing
slight advance. Slow movement of loins the past
several weeks continued into the current period,
however, at the close demand was fairly good.
Veal trading generally was slow but prices were
steady ending a two-week period of declining
prices. Demand was mostly fair for carcass
lamb. Lamb loins and ribs were slow but other
primal cuts had adequate outlets. Fair demand
for Boston butts after the initial session,
rork loins and spareribs slow. Spareribs cur-
rently at their lowest level since January 11,
1960.


PACIFIC COAST All carcase beef sold
mostly steady in San Francisco except for an
occasional 504 decline on Choice 700-800#
steer carcasses. Steer and heifer beef was
steady to 50 lower in Los Angeles, but steady
to t1.00 higher in the Pacific Northwest with
the most advance in Seattle. Cow beef prices
were 500-S1.00 lower in southern California,
costly steady elsewhere. Veal and calf largely
steady, instances $2.00 higher in Los Angeles
and Portland. Lamb held steady at all points.
Prices on most fresh pork cuts were $1.00-4.00
lower, greatest decline was on loins and in
California; cured pork was mostly steady other
than sliced bacon weak to 51.00 lower in Los
Angeles and firm to 81.00 higher in San Fran-
cisco.
Trading was fairly active on steer and
heifer beef with current supplies about normal
except in Los Angeles where above normal
supply of C!oice steer carcasses over 650#
exceeded demand. Moderate supplies of cow
beef were fully adequate for a rather narrow
demand. Liberal offerings of carcass lamb
moved in a moderately active trade. Trading
in general was slow and demand only fair for
the normal volume of fresh and cured pork.


CARLOT" IMAT TRALE REVIEW'

CHICAGO, DENVER, O'AHA, !FW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Although demand for steer beef
was moderate, trading was slow. Heifer beef
found a ready outlet and an active trade de-
veloped. Beef supplies were normal.
The week's trend on steer beef was strong
to $1.00 higher, mostly 50# higher. Heifer
beef was 250 to largely 500 higher except at
Philadelphia where prices were 750-81.00 up.
Cow beef sold steady to $1.00 lower, mostly
50#-81.00 lower. Clearance was only fair on
steer beef, but good on heifer and cow beef.

of carcass lamb and prices were 500-$1.50
higher, mostly $1.00-1.50 up. Clearance was
complete on lamb.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


In general, trading on wool remained very
dull. There was very little activity on do-
mestic wools as prevailing demand was mostly
poor. Voolen wools were slow.
Prices for domestic, territory and fleece
wools held about steady.
Primary interest currently centered on
last week's sealed bid sale at Portland, Oregon
and also the sale at Minneapolis, Minnesota
which got underway on November 1. Details of
these sales are as follows and bulk moved to
Eastern bwuyrs: Out of an offered l,00,L0
pounds of Oregon, V:ashington, California, Idaho
and Alaska wools, 800,uu0 pounds were sold.
Prices on a clean content basis for the various
grades ranked as follows: Fine 1.18-1.25,
half-blood $1.06-1.16, 3/8s S1.06-1.08, 1/4
*1.u5-l.ll, loi 1/4 980, braid 79-81#.
Of the two million pounds offered at
linneapolis, Minnesota 1,900,000 pounds sold,
both fleece and territory wools, all combing.
Prices estimated on a clean basis showed fine
wools at h1.1&-1.22, half-blood .1.14-1.17,
three-eighths ;1.06-1.J9, ouarter-blood j1.04-
1.07.
Prices at foreign markets were firm.
Cabled reports at midweek from Australia and
South Africa showed Japan and the Continent
dominating. Offerings were mainly fine types,.
both combing and clothing. New Zealand
auctions at Timaru and Christchurch reported
fair activity by all interests at steady
prices. South American wools remained quiet
although volume was increased slightly.
Fleece Wools Spot sales of fleece wools
comprised small lots,generally steady.
Territory Wools Good French combing and
staple 64s and finer 31.18-1.20, original bag
$1.15, three-eighths good French combing and
staple 31.06, choice 56/58s scoured California
lambs wool 80#.
Texas Wools Very little activity with
liberal offerings medium fall wools at 36,-41~4
grease basis.
Mohair Prices unchanged on limited sales.
Adult8T1-8614 to warehouse and straight kid
31.30-1.35.
Foreign Wools Mostly small lots moved
at steady prices. 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.
