MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


The general trend on slaughter steers and
heifers was steady to 500 lower at Corn Belt
terminals. Slaughter cows sold 50-41.50 lower.
Expanded marketing of feeder cattle and calves
sold steady to 50 lower at most points.
Barrows and gilts declined 25-75# at most
centers with sws steady to 25# lower. Wooled
slaughter lambs were steady to 50f lower in the
midwest, but at Denver, which received nearly
35 percent of the 12 market total, prices were
504-$1.00 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Cattle sup-
plies at twelve markets increased 5 percent
and stood the largest for ay week in eleven
months, but were 9 percent smaller than the
corresponding week a year ago. Seasonally in-
creased marketing of cows and feeders ac-
counted for the increase, as supplies of slaugh-
ter steers were unchanged and the volume of
slaughter heifers was a little smaller than the
preceding week. In Chicago, however, receipts
of slaughter steers and heifers increased as
the end of the recent series of non-slaughter-
ing kosher holidays resulted in larger supplies
of Prime steers and a heavier average weight.
In a general way, slaughter steers and heifers
finished the week steady to 50# lower, the
principal exception St. Paul where prices were
25# higher. As usual, Good and Choice grades
predominated in the steer and heifer supply.
Cows and bulls declined 504-1.50 with prices
mostly 50-41.00 lower. Vealers sold steady to
$1.00 higher at St. Paul while prices were
steady in St. Louis.
Slaughter steers: Load high-Prime 1279#
cashed at $27.00 in Chicago, highest since last
May, and a load Prime 1525# brought $26.00,
while Choice and Prime 950-1375# bulked early
at $24.00-25.75 and late at $23.50-25.251 Good
and low-Choice $22.25-24.00. At other mid-west
centers, Choice as well as a few consignments
high-Choice and Prime 25.00-24.50 few $24.75;
Choice mainly $23.00-24.00M Good $21.50-25.00.
Slaughter heiferst Choice bulked at
822.00-25.50 with Choice and Prim reaching
$23.85 at Chicago, Good aad low-Choice $21.00-
22.50.
Slaughter coews Utility and Comercial
$14.00-16.00, Canner and Cutter $11.50-14.50.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES The movement
of cattle and calves from range and pasture con-
tinued in full swing and supplies of feeders at
terminal markets swelled to the largest numbers
thus far this season. Even so, receipts at
terminals fell somewhat short of the numbers
marketed the corresponding week a year ago.
This has been true every week ths far this
season. Over-all quality was at a seaonally
high level with a liberal number grading Choice
and a moderate number of mixed Choice and Fancy


shipments. Marketing of calves and yearling
heifers were slightly expanded but these classes
ade up only a very moderate percentage of sup-
plies. Yearling and two-ear-old steers, 550-
960# predominated. Trading at midwest arkets
was even and at beat only moderately active at
steady to 50# lower prices. Virtually the only
exception was at St. Paul where prices were
fully steady to instances 50 higher. At Fort
Worth and Oklahoma City prices ranged from
steady to $1.00 lower. Supplies at the latter
market were the largest there since October of
last year.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-10506
bulked at $21.50-24.00. Few loads Choice 800-
865# brought $24.25-25.00 and at St. Paul 2
loads Choice 800# reached $26.00. However, at
Omaha Choice 908# brought $25.00. Medium and
axed Medium and Good sold from $18.25-22.25.
Scattered shipments Choice and mixed Choice and
Fancy 500-600# brought $27.00-28.00; Good and
Choice 550-750# largely $22.50-26.50; Medium
and mixed Medium and Good $19.00-23.50.
Feeder heiferst Good and Choice yearlings
$21.00-25.00, bulk $21.00-24.00.
Feeder calves: Few loads mixed Choice and
Fancy 500-450# steers $30.00-35.50 and several
loads heifers of sae grade and weight rage
$28.00-30.00. Bulk Good and Choice steers
$24.00-29.50, heifers $22.00-27.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at the
12 terminals numbered 312,000 or an increase
of 4 percent over the previous week and were
the largest since last June. The volume of bar-
rows and gilts weighing over 250# continued to
increase slightly at many of the markets but
No. 1-3 190-250C offerings continued to predomi-
nate in the supply. Sows made up 11 percent
of the eight-market total. Prices on barrows
and gilts generally worked lower. In addition
to the increase in receipts, there were other
factors also that offset any bullish influence
resulting from a higher dressed pork trade.
Continued labor difficulties at some west coast
slaughtering establishments again curtailed
shipper outlet at many centers. At Kansas City,
shippers restricted their purchases to only 11
percent of the supply or the smallest in two
years and at St. Joseph the ae interests took
the smallest number there since April.
Barrows and gilts declined generally 25-75#
during the period under review with sales
steady to 25# lower at Chicago and weak to 250
lower at Indianapolis. Sows sold mostly steady
to 25# lower with sales 25-75# off at Indian-
apolis, however, at Omaha saws weighing above
35Q advanced 25-50#.
Barrows and giltst No. 1-2, 200-2401

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts at the 12 mar-
kets numbered 139,000 head, little changed from
last week or a year earlier. The liberal
volume of slaughter lambs marketed included
about 65-75 percent wooled offerings. Feeder
lambs ranged from 20-50 percent of the lamb
supply at the various markets including Denver
and St. Paul at the latter figure. At most
markets slaughter lambs were steady to 50#
lower. Exceptions were fully steady prices at
Sioux City and Fort Worth and 50#-81.00 higher

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold steady
to mostly 50* lower; however, some Good grade at
Philadelphia moved 50# higher. Cow beef was
steady to 50# higher, except at Baltimore steady
to 50a lower. Veal and calf was steady to $2.00
higher but at Philadelphia Choice sold steady to
$1.00 higher, lower grades weak to $2.00 lower;
lamb steady to $1.00 lower at New York and Wash-
ington, otherwise steady to $1.00 higher; pork
loins steady to $2.00 lower with the decline at
New York and Philadelphia; spareribs $1.00-4.00
lower: Boston butts and fresh skinned hams
steady to $1.00 higher.
There was good clearance of meats for the
week at New York and Philadelphia, but some
carryover at other markets. Baltimore reported
poor cleanup of beef and Washington had beef
ribs and lamb foresnddles unsold. Supplies of
most classes were normal with pork showing some
increase. Trading in general was moderately
active with demand fairly good. Trading was
very active at all points on beef rounds and
rouh' cuts sold readily at New York fully $1.00
higher. Trading on carcass beef was somewhat
slow and action was best on 550-750# weights.
"eal and calf outlet was moderate. Lamb was
quite active, however, hindsaddles outsold front
end cute and carcass turn-over was some below
normal. Easiness was apparent for pork early
but improved outlet, notably for loins, on late
sessions was instrumental in erasing losses
with the close strong at most markets.
The kosher market was poorly tested because
of limited slaughter and supply available due to
non-kosher slaughtering at all plants.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer carcass beef
sold steady; veal steady to $1.00 higher; lamb
mostly $1.00 lower; pork loins 8-16# $1.50-2.00
higher; Boston butts 4--9 $2.00-2.50 up; spare-
ribs under 3# S2.00-2.50 lower.
Supplies in the beef, lamb and fresh pork
divisions were normal, and the beef supply was
mainly Choice. Rather a small percentage of
lamb fell in the 55-65# bracket, with 35-45#
weights most plentiful. Most pork loins scaled
8-12#. Veal offerings were small early but the
late supply was moderate.
Wholesale carcass beef was slow. Arm and
squarecut chucks were under considerable
pressure although some improved interest de-
veloped late. Ribs and loins were also slow
but only minor price change occurred. Trading
brisk and demand broad for rounds and prices
advanced $1.00-2.00. Increased veal offerings
were absorbed in a fairly active trade. Demand
generally was moderate for carcass lamb but
poor on the various primal cuts weakened prices.
Legs cleared well into all channels, fore end
cuts slow and burdensome at the close. Pork
loins and particularly Boston butts active at
higher rates, spareribs very slow.


PACIFIC COAST Labor difficulty at most
independent Los Angeles slaughtering plants
reduced supplies at the wholesale level, but
meat supplies at the retail level were about
adequate as a result of inshipments from other
areas.
Carcass steer and heifer beef sold strong
to 500 higher in Los Angeles; mostly steady,
instances 50& lower in other areas. Calf and
veal was poorly tested in Los Angeles, steady
at other points except veal strong to $1.00
higher in the Northwest; cow beef firm; lamb
strong to $1.00 higher in Los Angeles, steady
to weak at San Francisco, weak to 504 lower at
Portland. Fresh pork sold firm to $4.00
higher in Los Angeles, mostly steady elsewhere.
Cured pork held mostly steady except sliced
bacon weak to $3.00 lower.
Trading was active on steer and heifer
beef in Los Angeles with current supplies
occasionally short of demand. A moderately
active trade prevailed in San Francisco, but
slow in Northwest. Cow beef was about normal.
Lamb and pork supplies were about normal ex-
cept at Los Angeles. Trading was moderately
active under a fair demand.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DETVER, OMAHA, NEW YOR AND
PHILADELPHIA Price trends were highly mixed
in an uneven trade on carlot dressed beef.
Demand for steer and heifer beef was rather
narrow early and a moderate percentage of the
supply cleared at a lower price trend. How-
ever, by midweek the labor difficulties at
independent meat packers on the west coast had
some influence on the movement of beef, parti-
cularly weights under 800, and in addition
demand by eastern wholesalers improved in the
week's late trade. Supplies of most classes
were normal in shipping areas.
At the close, Choice 600-800# steer beef
was steady to 250 lower except at Denver where
the trend was steady to 500 higher. The
800-900# carcasses were mainly steady, but
25-500 higher at Philadelphia and steady to
500 lower at Denver. Good grade steer beef
was steady at most centers but strong to 500
higher at Philadelphia. Heifer beef prices
were steady to 500 higher, Denver the excep-
tion and mostly $1.00-1.50 higher. Cow beef
sold from $1.25-3.00 lower, mostly $1.25-2.00
lower, but only 500 off at Denver. Beef sup-
plies were well cleared at shipping centers.
Carcase lamb prices were steady to 500
lower except for $1.00-1.50 decline at Phila-
delphia. At Denver lamb prices were steady
to 500 higher. Clearance was generally good.
Supplies of pork products were only
slightly increased. Demand was moderate to
good and pork loins sold $1.50-2.00 higher.
Pork butts were 500-$2.00 higher with fresh
hams at Omaha $2.00-2.50 higher.

THE LIVESTOCK AND MEAT SITUATION

Approved by the Outlook and Situation Board, September 27, 1961

SUMMARY

Seasonally low receipts for hogs and decreased cattle slaughter during most of
August resulted in reduced red meat production from the May-June period. Weekly out.
put of red meat during August was about equal to August a year ago, but significantly
below the high level maintained during the spring.

Accompanying the decline in red-meat production during August were across-the-
board price increases for slaughter livestock. September was characterized by rela-
tively stable cattle prices and slightly lower hog prices than a month earlier. Lamb
prices declined at most markets during September but tended to level off near the end
of the month.

The 1961 spring pig crop was reported at 50.5 million head-7 percent larger
than the 1960 spring crop. However, the impact of this larger crop likely will be
most noticeable in the late fall and early winter. Practically all of the increase
in farrowings occurred in April and May. In view of the distribution of this year's
spring pig crop, hog slaughter is expected to increase seasonally during October,
but is not expected to exceed last year by any significant margin until November.

The quarterly Pig Crop Report in September indicated this fall's crop may be up
a little less than the 5 percent planned in June. June-August farrowings in the 10
Corn Belt States reporting were the same as a year earlier, but the number of sows
intended for farrowing in September-November was 5 percent more than a year ago.
These States also reported plans to increase December-February litters by 4 percent,
indicating a small increase is likely in the 1962 spring pig crop.

Late July and August rains have eased the severity of drought conditions over
much of the West. Emergency assistance to the livestock industry in drought-stricken
counties also will aid in preventing any serious market glut of livestock this fall
due to forced liquidation. CCC-owned feed grains can be purchased for the mainte-
nance of foundation livestock at 75 percent of the 1961 support price. Grazing and
haying restrictions on diverted acreages have been relaxed in a number of drought-
stricken counties. The first impact of the Canadian drought was reflected in the
number of cattle imported from Canada in July. Canadian exports of cattle to the
U. S. in July totaled 52,867 head this year compared with unusually low shipments of
8,968 last year. August imports amounted to 59,886 head. The Canadian Government
has announced an emergency livestock program,...."to avoid a heavy liquidation of
livestock due to serious shortages of fodder in the drought areas of the Prairie
Provinces."

In early September, the price spread between the upper and lower grades of fed
cattle was narrower than a year before, with the top grades generally below and the
lower grades above September 1960 prices. Fed cattle prices are expected to hold
relatively close to present levels during the next several months and will likely
average a little below prices a year earlier.

Prices for stocker-feeder cattle, as the marketing season nears its peak, appear
to be firm and any seasonal price declines this fall likely will be limited to
heavier-weight feeders. Moisture conditions are favorable for seeding wheat over
most of the winter area and the present outlook is for another good year of winter
cereal pastures. However, the acreage of wheat seeded is expected to be lower this
year than last due to the new wheat stabilization program. Available supplies of
feeder cattle this fall are probably close to those of last fall, and prospects for
relatively stable fed cattle prices next year will lend support to feeder prices.
