MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Cattle receipts were further curtailed as
all markets were closed for Thanl'sivinp. Con-
sequently, supplies at the 12 nmrkets were
twelve percent below the rela+ivel:r small vol-
ure of the previous week. Slpught.er steers
and heifers sold steady to 75t hi-her over the
Corn Pelt. with most advercc on high-Good to
Frime offerings. Cows were uneven but gener-
ally steady to 25f hig-her. Feeder cattle and
calves were steady to strong at most midwest
centers. Farrows and gilts advanced late to
close 25-750 higher for the week, sows were
steady to 51) higher. Slaughter lambs were
strong to 11.00 higher,

STAU'GrrIT CATTI. A:D CALVFS The general
level of fed cattle prices reached new highs
since last spring. Small receipts for the
second consecutive week and higher wholesale
dressed beef prices contributed to meer3rably
higher prices for slaughter steers and heifers
grading hiph-Good to Prime. Closing prices on
such cattle were unevenly steady to 75# higher,
mostly 25-500 higher. Standard to averap*-%ood
steers and heifers held mainly steady. Thus,
the price spread between grades of slaughter
cattle, which earlier this year was the narrow-
est in 15 years, became the widest since last
spring. Tuyelve market cattle receipts at
'!4,000 were fully 12 percent smaller than the
previous week when receipts were the smallest
for a full marketing week in more than three
months. Cows sold steady at several points,
but were strong to 25# higher at Or-ha and
Fioux City, strong to 50# higher at St. Joseph,
while the trend was steady to 25 lower at
Chicaro and 5no lower at St. Paul. Bills were
also uneven but were generally steady to strong.
Vealers sold steady to weak at St. Paul and
St. Louis.
laughter steers: Prime commercially fed
steers sold up to :28.25 in Chicago where at
least a dozen loads 1150-13en: sold at 127.85-
2P.00. Choice and Trime all weights in Chicago
bulked early at .24.75-27.50, and late at
'25.25-27.75, including 1500-1625-/ at '25.25-
25.75. fixed Choice and Prime reached $26.00-
2-.50 at other Corn Belt markets, Choice bulk-
ing at 324.00-?5.50, Good at S22.75-24.50.
FSluhter heifers: Load mixed Choice and
Time 1144"/ 25.75, highest price for heifers
in ChicaFo since April. Bul!- Choice 0?3.00-
24.50 with numerous loads to .25.00 in Chicago,
and most oood :22.00-23.5").
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
1.00-16.50, Canner and Cutter largely $12.00-
14.50.

F?'DER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
- showed further curtailment as the fall market-
Sine season drew nearer a close. Supplies were


fairly large for late November but. ere substan-
tially below the numbers marKeted several weeks
earlier during the height of the marketing sea-
son. The decrease in numbers the past couple of
weeks was accompanied by a decline in over-all
quality. A larger percent of rarketings
consisted of Good and mixed Good and Choice ship-
ments rith a corresponding decrease irn the per-
cent of high-Choice and mixed Choice and Fancy
grades. Although buyer attendance at some mar-
kets was not overly large, outlet was fully am-
ple to absorb supplies at midwest markets and
trading was fairly active at steady to strong
prices. At Omaha yearling and two-year-old
steers were strong to 500 higher. Meanwhile, at
Wichita and Oklahoma City prices were steady to
504 lower.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-100l #
bulked at '22.50-24.50, few loads Choice 800-
900,/ :.24.75-25.50. Relatively few over 100l
went to feeder buyers but Choice fleshy 980.
were included at C24.50. Recent upturns in
slaughter cattle prices have tended to encourage
increased interest in fleshy feedlot replacements
but the market for slaughter cattle was such
that 1000-110Ql two-way steers usually went for
immediate slaughter. Good and Choice 550-750#
$23.00-26.50, several loads 578-636, $26.75-
27.00. Few loads Choice and Fancy 521-557#
short yearlings 28.00-31.00. Tedium and mixed
Medium and Good 550-750C brought $19.50-23.50.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 525-700,
brought C21.50-24.50 with this class in limited
supply at most all markets.
Feeder calves: A few shipments Choice and
Fancy 350-450# steers brought C32.00-34.00,
others of Good and Choice grades ranged $24.00-
31.50. Good and Choice heifers bulked $22.50-
28.00, few loads Choice and Fancy 428.50-50.00,
one load 318a9 31.00.

HOGS Terminal markets Hog prices not
only advanced for the first time in a month at
midwest terminals but also made the sharpest
upturn in over three months. Decreased re-
ceipts for the Thanksgiving shortened week and
a higher carlot pork trade were the main bull-
ish factors influencing the live price rise
that came largely late in the week. Barrows
and gilts finished the period generally 25-75#
higher than the previous week's close. Along
with the broad demand, price spreads on the
different weight groups narrowed somewhat. Sows
closed steady to 50f higher. Mixed grade U. S.
No. 1-3, 190-250 barrows and gilts predomi-
nated in the run with sows making up 7-15 per-
cent at the various markets. Outlet on shipper
accounts was only moderate early but by the end
of the week those interests had become quite
aggressive at many of the points.
Barrows and gilts: At the close, No. 1-3,
190-24Q0 barrows and gilts brought $16.50-17.25








at eastern Corn Belt terminals with No. 1-2,
190-230q $16.90-17.50. No. 1-3, 190-240#
$16.00-16.50 in the western part of the area
with No. 1-2 .16.25-16.75, instances $17.00 at
Omaha.
Sows: U. S. 1-3, 250-400// sows brought
$14.00-15.25, 400-600( $15.50-14.75.
Feeder pigs sold strong to 500 higher at
St. Paul but steady to 25# lower at Sioux City.
Good and Choice 130-16Q@? at St. Paul brought
S15.00-15.50 and at Sioux City $14.50-15.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 93# per cwt.. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
November 16 to November 22, 1961 inclusive.
Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area holiday-shortened receipts at 363,000 head
were fully ,5 percent short of the previous
full week's supply and about equal to the corre-
sponding week last year. Price downturns early
in week were more than recovered by upturns on
Wednesday and Friday. Closing sales of barrows
and gilts were 25-50f higher than late in the
previous week, sows 10-250 higher. Sows made
up about 8 percent of receipts.
On Friday, No. 1-3 200-240/ barrows and
gilts brought '15.25-16.00 vith a moderate vol-
ume No. I and 2 "15.75-16.50. No. 1-3 270-40Q0
sows sold at $13.75-15.25; 400-550/ $12.25-
13.85.
Hogs Interior Illinois Demand was
fairly good throughout the week. Barrows and
gilts closed mostly 500 higher than previous
Friday with most upturn occurring late. Sows
ended the period steady to 25f higher. On Fri-
day most No. 1 to 5, 190-230# barrows and
gilts S15.75-16.50; eastern areas of State
mostly $16.25-16.50, few 190-221' P16.50-16.75.

SHEEP AND LJMBS Receipts at the 12 termi-
nals numbered 76,000 head, little changed from
either the previous week or a year earlier.
Good demand and price upturns featured trading
at most points as moderate slaughter lamb
marketing coupled with sharply higher dressed
lamb prices were major factors supporting ad-
vances on the live trade. For the week, slaugh-
ter lambs were strong to .1.00 higher, includ-
ing several points 25#-500 up. Slaughter ewes
were steady to 50f higher. Feeder lambs were
steady to 50f higher with the most upturn at
Kansas bity and St. Paul. Feeders accounted for
12-30 percent of receipts at river markets but
comprised 40 percent at Denver.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT EAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass beef
was 50-Sl.00 higher at most markets. Cow
beef steady to $1.00 up. Veal prices were
uneven, at Philadelphia $4.00 higher, Wash-
ington steady to $1.00 lower, and other
centers steady to $1.00 higher. Lamb was
steady to $1.50 up, the upturn made at
New York late in the week; pork loins
steady to $2.00 lower; however, at New York
$1.00-2.50 higher. Spareribs and Boston
butts held steady, fresh skinned hams strong
to $1.00 higher.
Choice and Prime kosher steer fore-
quarters were 50# higher; lamb, veal and
calf steady.
Despite a rather slow trade for red
meats, clearance was good as supplies were
below normal. Chain buyers in particular
were less active than usual for carcasses
in volume lots. Retailers, however, showed
preference for steer forequarters and most
lamb cuts. Pork products and mainly hams
and loins moved readily along the Eastern
Seaboard with buyer activity good late in
the week.


50d higher in Southern California. Cow
and bull beef about steady in a slow
trade. Calf and veal sold steady to $1.00
higher in the Portland-Seattle area,
mostly steady in California. Lamb held
steady over the entire area. Fresh pork
was weak to $1.00 lower in Los Angeles,
around steady in the San Francisco Bay
area but steady to occasionally $1.00
higher in the Pacific Northwest. Cured
pork largely steady in Southern Cali-
fornia, steady to $3.00 lower elsewhere
except in San Francisco where hams were
$3.00 higher.
Carcass steer and heifer trade was
generally fair as slaughter operations
adjusted downward to fit seasonal demand.
Liberal offerings of cow beef met a
continued narrow demand in Southern Cali-
fornia, otherwise fair. A moderate
volume of lamb was fairly active through-
out. Supply was about in line with de.
mand for veal and calf. The pork trade
was slow with the best outlet for smoked
hams.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Prices wre steady on all domestic wools.
Trading on greasy domestic worsted wools was
very slow in the Boston wool market. Trading
in the domestic wool producing areas continued
very slow.
Pulled wools were in fair demand with
supplies moderate and prices steady. Domestic
noils were very slow and limited sales strong.
Foreign wools were firm and there was
good activity at all primary markets. Cables
from Australia indicate the market at Fremantle
was strong with most support from Eastern
Europe and the Continent. Brisbane sold firm
under general competition by the Continent,
Eastern Europe and Bradford while Eastern
Europe dominated at Melbourne and prices were
strong. At Napier, New Zealand, quotations
were firm. Japan was less active than in
recent weeks in all areas. South African
wools sold firm with most long wools 20 higher,
Reports from South America showed price trends
strong.
Fleece Vools Sales were very limited
and steady. About a car of half-blood fleeces
moved at $1.14-1.15.
Territory Wools Sales volume was very
meager with most spot activity on small lots
at steady prices.
Texas Wools No sales of Texas wools
were reported this week.
Mohair Local business was extremely
limite.-
Foreign Wools Turnover of foreign
wools was slow locally. Quotatiors were firm
and in the sellers' favor in all foreign mar-
kets. 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.


Carpet Wools The carpet wool trade was
generally slow with only occasional small lots
sold. New Zealand quotations showed prices very
firm and rising with type 128 around 78#, early
shorn wool at 74# and crutchings around 67-68#.
Greasy Buenos Aires November second clips were
priced around 73#, March wools around 69f and
lambs wools around 72$. Yellow India wools were
offered in volume around 670, all above clean
fibers present for shipment.
Woolen Wools Trade in the local market
was slow. A fair volume of greasy fall wool
sold in Texas for scouring purposes at 44-490,
but mostly 45-46f grease basis, f.o.b. Spot
scoured defective fall wool brought around 97#
while a short 12 months moved around J$.24.
Better length scoured 12 months sold from $1.25-
1.50, delivered Fast.
Noils continued slow to move but with a
little interest in forward shipment for import.
A New Zealand 50s cross-bred noble noil sold at
724 and Buenos Aires 44s nobles around 614.
iWl Tops Trade in wool tops was limited
with turnover mostly for orders previously
committed. There were occasional sales of oil-
combed 54s fleece tops around $1.44-1.45.
