MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Weight continued to be a major factor in
price trends on slaughter steers at midwest
terminals. Steers weighing 1200# and down
sold steady to 500 lower for the week with
heavier steers 250-$1.50 lower. Slaughter
heifers closed steady to 500 lower, cows 504-
*r1.00 off, stockers and feeders steady to
41.00 lower. Barrows and gilts as well as
sows were steady to 500 lower. Spring slaugh-
ter lambs were generally steady to 500 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers 1200, down sold steady to 500 lower at
most midwest markets. Heavier steers were 25#-
41.00 lower with some as much as 41.50 lower
in Chicago. Heifers were steady to 500 lower.
Cows sold 500-$1.00 lower at most points with
some sales $1.50 lower at St. Joseph and Sioux
Falls. Bulls were steady to 500 lower and
vealers steady to $1.00 higher in St. Paul but
steady at St. Louis. Slaughter steer and heif-
er numbers showed little change at most points.
despite the July 4th holiday, however, reduced
marketing of other classes brought about a 15
percent decrease from the previous week in
salable cattle receipts at the 12 markets.
Good and Choice steers and heifers formed the
bulk of the supply at most markets. Several
terminals received a liberal supply of high-
Good and Choice steers 1150# and heavier and in
Chicago numerous loads of average to high-Choice
1150-1500# steers were offered. The price
spread between the various grades of slaughter
steers and heifers was the narrowest in several
years. For example, at Chicago around 90 per-
cent of the steer supply sold from $20.00-
25.00 on Wednesday with Good, Choice and Prime
grades selling within almost every segment
of the price range depending on weight. Heif-
ers 950, down continued to outsell steers over
1200# and in many cases by a substantial margin.
Cow prices continued to move lower in response
to sharp declines in the dressed trade.
Choice steers 850-1200,i sold from $21.25-
25.00 while 1200-1600,1 brought p19.75-22.25.
In Chicago Prime and mixed Choice and Prime
1050-1600,, steers sold at $20.25-24.00 with
most 1050-1500j from $21.75-23.50 and one load
Prime 1500, $25.50. Good steers bulked at
i19.50-22.00. A few high-Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime heifers cashed at Q25.00-
25.50 while Choice brought $21.25-23.00 and
Good $19.50-22.00. Utility and Commercial cows
brought 313.50-16.50; Canner and Cutter
12.00-15.00.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES 'he
seasonally moderate movement of stocker and
feeder cattle and calves was further curtailec
by an early week holiday and receipts at most
terminal markets were relatively small even for


this time of year. A moderate percent of the
over-all supply consisted of Choice and mixed
Good and Choice offerings. However, Medium and
Good grades predominated. Trading generally was
slow at prices unevenly steady to $1.00 lower.
Good and Choice yearling stockers and calves
usually showed least weakness. Weight continued
to be an important price determining factor on
calves and yearlings as well as older cattle.
Moderate interest was displayed in steers up to
925,# but demand was very poor for feeders 1000#
up. A return to a lower trend in slaughter
cattle prices after last week's brief respite
from the long drawn-out downtrend, was the most
important factor influencing a somewhat cur-
tailed and decidedly bearish demand for stockers
and feeders.
Choice 565J stock steers reached $28.50,
Good and Choice 525-750# sold from $22.00-26.00
with relatively few exceeding $25.00. Medium
and low-Good stockers cashed from $18.50-25.00.
Good and Choice 750-950# feeder steers brought
$20.00-25.00, Medium $18.00-20.00. Good and
Choice yearling heifers sold from $20.00-23.00,
few $25.25-25.50, Choice 775# feeder heifers
were included at $22.00. Good and Choice steer
calves bulked at $25.00-28.00, same grades
heifer calves $20.00-25.50. Few Choice and
Fancy 208-210# steer calves brought 035.00-
55.00 with 200, heifer calves at $50.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog receipts at
the 12 terminals were reduced from the previous
week due to Independence Day with around
237,000 head being marketed or about 17 percent
under a week ago. The supply, particularly in
the Eastern Corn Belt, included an increased
showing of butchers weighing 190-220,7#. The
average weight of the barrows and gilts at 228
compared with 230 the previous week and 231
the corresponding week last year. Sows con-
tinued to arrive in generous volume, that class
making up 20-30 percent at many of the centers.
Although receipts were rather moderate for the
week, large runs late in the period had a de-
pressing effect on prices and more than offset
the influence of a higher wholesale trade.
After reaching a three-month high during the
previous week price trends for the week in re-
view were steady to 500 lower. Demand from
order buyers continued broad, those interests
taking mainly 190-240,, barrows and gilts but 50
percent of the sow supply at Sioux City also
went on shipper account.
On Friday U. S. No. 1-2, 180-240, barrows
and gilts sold mainly at $18.00-18.50, up to
418.85 at Indianapolis. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and
2-5, 180-250#, late in the week brought $17.25-
18.25, largely 417.50-18.00. U. S. 1-3, 270-
600,i sows sold from 412.00-15.50, bulk 313.00-
15.25, with a limited number U. S. 1-2,









250-3u0,f 415.75-16.00.
Feeder pig prices held steady at both
Sioux City and St. Paul. Good and Choice 130-
170, feeders at Sioux City brought .15.50-16.25,
same grades 150-1601 at St. Paul '16.00-16.50.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-22U,/ barrows
and gilts was 95# per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
June 29 to July 5, 1961 inclusive.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled 249,000, about
14 percent less than the previous full week
supply, but around 15 percent more than a year
earlier. General rains following the lonp
holiday week-end were partly responsible for
increased marketing late in the week. Price
advances through Uednesday were erased on later
sessions and 160-24j0 barrows and gilts closed
steady to 15# lower than the previous Friday,
heavier butchers steady to 10# higher. Sows
sold steady to 250 higher and comprised around
20 percent of receipts.
On Friday mixed U. S. 1-3 and 2-3 200-240./
barrows and gilts sold at 17.00-17.60, No. 1-2
317.50-17.90. U. S. 1-3 270-400d sows brought
416.60-15.65, bulk $14.00-15.25, 400-550;)
$12.10-14.15.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
markets at 53,000 head were 23 percent below
the full marketing period a week earlier and
were 9 percent less than the corresponding
holiday shortened week of last year. Bulk of
supply was spring slaughter lambs. Demand was
fairly good for the reduced volume and spring
slaughter lambs sold steady to 500 higher for
the week, instances '1.00 up and at Indian-
apolis lambs advanced $1.50-2.00. Old-crop
slaughter lambs and yearlings and slaughter
ewes were steady to strong, instances 50# high-
er. Feeder lambs were steady to 500 lower.
Choice and Prime 85-110# spring slaughter
lambs sold from 318.50-20.00, package 95#
lambs at Chicago reached $20.25; Good and
Choice 417.00-18.75, mainly Good $15.00-17.00.
Choice 80-114# shorn old-crop slaughter lambs
and yearlings, mainly yearlings, $15.50-16.00,
Good and Choice $12.00-15.00. Cull to Choice
shorn slaughter ewes mainly $2.50-4.50.
Choice 55-60# western South Dakota feeder
lambs brought $17.00-17.25 late at Sioux City,
Good and Choice $15.00-16.50. Good and Choice
53-95, feeders at most other markets 412.50-
15.50.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota sheep
and lamb receipts numbered 13,700 head for the
holiday shortened period or 21 percent below a
week earlier but about the same as last year.
Fairly good demand and price strength featured
trading for the sharply reduced supply of
spring slaughter lambs and prices for the weeK
were steady to strong, instances 500 higher,
however, some Good lambs were weak to 505
lower. Other represented slaughter classes


were steady.
On Friday Choice and Prime 80-100,/ spring
slaughter lambs sold from 418.00-19.00, few con-
signments to 419.50; Good and Choice 417.00-
18.50, few Good 1C .00-17.00. Limited numbers
of Choice 90-105,i shorn old-crop slaughter lambs
and yearlings No. 1-2 and fall shorn pelts
brought 415.50-15.00. Cull to Good shorn
slaughter ewes 42.00-3.50.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Prices were mostly
steady for steer carcasses with some sales 500
higher at Washington; cow beef steady to mainly
$1.00 lower; veal largely steady to $1.00 up;
quotations for calf were unchanged. Spring lamb
prices averaged steady at most centers along the
Eastern Seaboard, however, at New York Choice
and Prime carcasses 30-45# sold $1.00 lower,
while lamb 45-65# closed 50#-$1.00 higher. For
the second consecutive week bulk pork sold
higher with loins and spareribs advancing $2.00-
5.00. Boston butts mainly $1.00-2.00 up: fresh
skinned hams largely steady to $1.00 higher.
A steady trend prevailed for kosher steer
beef, veal and calf. Kosher spring lamb closed
steady to mostly $1.00 off.
Volume of steer beef was near normal; other
railstocks moderate to normal; pork small to
moderate. During the holiday week trading was
generally moderately active for steer carcasses
and cuts with demand good, but at New York out-
let was poor for ribs and rounds sold slowly at
Washington. Retailers purchased only spot re-
quirements of cow beef, veal and calf, however,
with receipts slightly reduced clearance was
good. The lamb trade was uneven. Most sales
at New York made on cuts which were derived from
carcasses 50-65# and these were shown in rather
small numbers. Outlet was fairly broad for pork
with loins, spareribs and Boston butts clearing
promptly on all sessions. Small lots of lamb
were carried at New York.

CHICAGO Beef and veal prices were steady,
spring lamb steady to $1.00 higher, the upturn
on 55-65# carcasses, pork loins steady to $1.50
up, advance 8-12# range, Boston butts 4-8# steady
to 500 higher, spareribs steady.
Supplies of beef and spring lamb were moder-
ate, veal and fresh pork rather small. Choice
steer beef over 700# represented bulk this class,
spring lamb again mostly 55# and down. Suspended
slaughtering activities on July 4th kept supplies
below normal.
Carcass beef trade was slow. However, beef
loins were active on each session. Arm and
squarecut chucks also moved well through Wednes-
day but later trade slowed. Rounds and ribs
were hard to sell. Veal trade was slow but small
supplies stabilized prices. Moderate demand for
spring lamb, all primal lamb cuts except legs
cleared evenly. Little price spread between
various weight ranges, 35-65#. Pork loins ad-
vanced slightly following substantial upturn of
last week. Dealers were able to clear small
fresh pork supplies, fair trade at the outset
slowing as the week progressed. Spareribs not
nearly as active as the past several weeks.


PACIFIC COAST Steer beef sold steady
to 500 higher, some sales $1.00 higher; cow
beef was steady to 50# lower; calf and veal
mostly steady, instances $1.00 lower in the
Northwest; spring lamb steady to $1.00 higher,
the advance in Los Angeles; fresh pork loins
$2.00-5.00 higher, other fresh pork items firm
to $2.00 higher; smoked pork steady to $1.00
higher.
Supplies of most meats moderate to small
except steer over 650# and cow beef abundant
in Los Angeles and spring lamb liberal in the
Northwest. Demand for most meats fairly good;
trading active for fresh pork, moderately
active for most other meats.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic worsted wools
was rather slow as approximately six cars sold
at steady prices. With most woolen mills closed
for annual vacations, trading on scoured and
greasy pulled wools was rather dull but a fair
volume of noils was sold. Sales continued in
the domestic primary areas with a fair weight
moved in the territory States and in Texas with
only an occasional lot sold in the fleece wool
States.
According to cabled reports at midweek,
prices at the Australian markets were slightly
easier due to the poor selection offered. The
Continent and Japan were the principal operators
with more Bradford competition at midweek. With
other markets closed for the season, offerings
were out of current stocks at about unchanged
rates.
Fleece Wools Graded 64s and better,good
French combing and staple fleeces sold at an
estimated clean cost of $1.16-1.17 while origi-
nal bag medium fleeces brought 980 clean. Oc-
casional lots of mixed quarter and three-eighths
fleeces sold at 50-510 grease basis, delivered
East.
Territory Wools Graded 64s average to
good French combing territory wool sold at
$1.15 while graded 60/62s good French combing
and staple brought $1.10 clean basis. Approxi-
mately 700,000 pounds of original bag bulk half
and fine with about 15 percent of three-eighths
sold at Belle Fourche, South Dakota at $1.07
clean basis on a core test.
RANGE SALES FOLIDW: Montana About
139,000 pounds of original bag fine and half-
blood wools sold at $1.06-1.09 clean basis, de-
livered East. Grease prices ranged from 41-480
f.o.b. for moderate and from 50-590 f.o.b. for
heavy shrinking wool. The Garfield County Pool
of approximately 125,000 pounds sold in Jordan
at 45.40 f.o.b. Oregon Turnover was slow with
most wools out of first hands except some Valley
Oregon wools. Prices declined to 40-453 to the
growers for Valley medium wools and were esti-
mated to cost clean around 79-820 delivered
East.
Texas Wools Trade in Texas wools was slow
with occasional lots of average 12 months wools
sold in Texas up to $1.20 clean basis delivered
East.
Mohair Small lots of spring adult mohair
were selling at 8621 to the warehouse. There
were offerings to contract fall mohair at 7610
for adult and $1.061 for kid hair to the ware-
house.
Foreign Wools Spot foreign wools were
slow. A greasy B.A. November combing wool
sold for shipment around 77-7710 clean fibers
present while fleeces were priced around 791-80#
for shipment. Quotations from Newcastle were
firm but Adelaide was about 2 pence off on fine
wools and approximately 5 pence lower on medium


wools. Cabled reports at week's end follow
with combing wools converted to clean U. S.
oil-combed yields in bond.

THI LIVESTOCK AND M AT SITUATION
Approved by the Outlook and Situation Board, June 29, 1961
SUMMARY

Hog production is increasing, cattle numbers are probably expanding,
but sheep flocks may show a reduction during 1961. The average price paid
to farmers in June for hogs was above a year earlier but those for beef
cattle and sheep were below last June. Thus far this year farmers' cash
receipts from livestock and livestock products have been above a year ago.
Sales of meat animals provided 30 percent of farm cash receipts last year.

The 1961 spring pig crop is 7 percent larger than last year's crop
and producers plan for 2 percent more sows to farrow fall pigs. The gain in
farrowing will lead to larger marketing and a downward adjustment in price
level during the next 12 months. Hog prices this summer will probably average
close to last summer but prices this fall and winter will be a little lower
than a year earlier.

Cattle slaughter in the first half of 1961 was about 4 percent above
the first 6 months in 1960. Winter slaughter was up slightly but heavy
slaughter of fed cattle this spring accounted for most of the gain. Slaughter
the rest of this year will likely continue a little above a year earlier.
Even so, the year's total will probably not be large enough to halt the build-
up in inventory numbers. Increasing productivity of the cattle herd has been
an important factor in boosting beef production in recent years.

Prices of fed cattle have held relatively steady in recent weeks
following a $5.00 decline from a January high. In late June prices were about
$3.50 per 100 pounds below a year earlier. Some summertime increase seems
probable, lending support to grass cattle prices. On the whole, prices of
feeder cattle seem likely to decline slowly this summer and may average nearly
as high as last summer.

Lamb slaughter so far this year has been about 13 percent above a year
earlier--unusually large relative to numbers on hand. Part of this gain came
from an early movement of the 4 percent larger early lamb crop. Marketing
of old crop lambs were also larger and indicate a probable reduction in sheep
numbers during 1961.

The heavy rate of marketing depressed lamb prices last winter and
spring. Lamb prices usually trend lower during the summer and fall, but
following heavy marketing to date, the June-December decline this year will
probably be less than during the past 2 years.

Retail prices of meat this summer will probably average about the same
as last summer. Production of fed beef and pork will likely be a little larger
than last year but output of other kinds of beef and veal will be down. Total
production for 1961 is expected to provide consumers about the same amount of
beef per person but 1 to 2 pounds less pork than in 1960.

More beef and pork were produced from slaughter in Iowa in 1959 than
in any other State. Of the 27.3 billion pounds of red meat produced in the
U. S., including farm slaughter, 38 percent came from slaughter in the
West North Central States.
