MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Average-Choice to Prime slaughter steers
sold steady to 250 higher at most midwest
terminals while other grades were steady to
250 lower. However, at Chicago the trend was
steady to 50* lower with most decline on Prime
steers. Slaughter heifers were steady to 500
higher. Trends on slaughter cows were uneven
but generally steady. Feeder cattle and calves
sold steady to strong. Barrows and gilts were
steady to 504 higher with weights below 240#
25-500 up. Sows were generally steady to 25*
lower, the decline mainly on weights over 400#.
Slaughter lambs were steady to 50* higher at
most points.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Cattle
supplies at 12 markets were the largest in four
weeks. The number of slaughter steers sold
out of first hands at the 7 markets totaled
83,173 compared with 73,068 the previous week
and 79,440 the corresponding week last year.
Prices for slaughter steers showed little net
change although closing trade was the most
active of the week when price levels were the
highest. Strong to $1.00 higher prices for
steer and heifer beef carcasses at leading
wholesale markets was the main bullish factor.
With shortfed steers in seasonally larger
supply, the price spread became somewhat wider
as steers sold more on a grade and less on a
weight basis than any time in months.
At most markets slaughter steers grading
average-Choice to Prime closed steady to 254
higher, others steady to 25* lower. Chicago
was about the only exception where steers
finished steady to 50* lower with Prime under
most pressure. Heifers were steady to 50#
higher and at a new high since last spring.
Cows, although uneven, were mainly steady.
Bulls were in uniformly good demand and sold
steady to 50* higher. Vealers were strong to
$1.00 higher.
Slaughter steers: At markets other than
Chicago, a few loads of Prime and mixed Choice
and Prime steers sold from $25.75 to $27.00,
Choice bulked at $24.50-25.75 with a few loads
1475-1600# $22.50-23.50, and most Good over the
Corn Belt $22.75-24.50. In Chicago 7 loads
Prime 1200-140CV/ steers $27.75, bulk Choice
and Prime 950-1500' $25.50-27.50 with two loads
mixed Good and Choice 1710# f22.00.
Slaughter heifers: A load high-Choice to
mostly Prime 1040# heifers at Chicago $26.00,
bulk Choice $24.50-25.50. At other markets a
few high-Choice and Prime $24.75-25.50, Choice
bulked at $23.50-25.00 and Good t22.00-24.00.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
largely $14.00-16.50, few reaching $17.50, most
Canner and Cutter $12.00-15.00.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Marketing of
feeder cattle and calves were fairly liberal


for the first week of December and over-all
quality, although at a noticeably lower level
than during the peak of the fall marketing
season, was fairly high for this time of year.
Medium and Good grades were well represented but
a siseable percent of supplies at terminal
markets were high-Good and Choice and scattered
shipments of mixed Choice and Fancy were
marketed. A moderate number of Canadian cattle
continued to be marketed in this country. Recent
upturns in slaughter cattle prices together
with ample stockpiles of roughage and other
feeds were factors which encouraged fairly
active trading at steady to strong prices. At
Wichita and Fort Worth prices were steady to
50* higher. Feeder buyers displayed consider-
able interest in fleshy cattle suitable for a
short turn in the feedlot and moderate numbers
of partly fattened, two-way steers were pur-
chased for additional feeding. However, slaugh-
ter buyer competition often was too much for
feeder buyers on fleshy cattle.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
largely $22.00, several loads $24.75-25.00
and shipment Choice 806# $25.75. Choice 950-
1000# bulked at $23.50-24.00. High-Choice 649!
brought $27.50 and few loads Choice 550-575#
$27.50-30.50 but majority Good and Choice 550-
750# sold from $23.50-26.50; Medium and low-
Good $18.50-24.00.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice 550-750#
sold chiefly from $21.50-24.50; Choice 707#
included at $24.00. At Denver Choice 565#
brought $25.25.
Feeder calves: Good and mixed Good and
Choice steers bulked at $25.00-29.00 while
loadlots Choice and Choice and Fancy sold
largely from $29.00-33.50 one load 371#
$35.85 and shipment 297# $55.50. Choice and
mixed Choice and Fancy heifers brought $27.50-
31.75; bulk Good and mixed Good and Choice
$22.00-27.50.

HOGS Terminal markets Receipts of hogs
were 12 percent less than the previous week
and nearly identical to the same period a year
ago. Shipper demand was relatively broad,
particularly for the 180-230? butchers. Sows
comprised 10 percent of the receipts at the 8
markets. Weight played an important part in the
the price trend on barrows and gilts as weights
under 240# were 25-50f higher, heavier weights
steady to 25* up. Sows were steady to 250
lower with most decline on weights over 400#.
Barrows and gilts: U. S. 1-5, 180-240#
closed at $16.00-16.75 at the Western Corn Belt

same as previous week and around 10 percent

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
terminals numbered 94,000 head, 17 percent
less than a week earlier and 59 less than last

Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area at25,600 head


compares to 25,100 last week and 27,500 a year

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THA! CARCLT VEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERF.: EABOARD Steer beef prices at New
York were 50. higher for the week after regaining
some eirly price concessions. At other markets
carcass steer beef sold strong to Sl.00 higher
with most -dvance at %'shinpton and Philadelphia.
Cow beef sold steady to Sl,00 higher. Veal
turned readily in most areas at steady to $2.00
higher prices with advances of '3.00-4.00 at
Philadelphia. Lamb was the slowest to move and
was steady to $3.00 lower but was steady to $1.00
higher at Baltimore. Pork loins were steady to
mostly 51.00 lower at "ew York, otherwise steady
to $2.00 higher. Fresh skinned hams sold steady
to $2.00 higher at Baltimore and Philadelphia,
but steady to $2.00 lower at New York. Other
1ork cuts were steady to $2.00 lower.
Kosher steer beef was fully 50e higher with
veal and calf foresaddles fully steady to strong
and kosher lamb fc .res steady to weak.
Supplies were mostly normal at the several
markets aside from above normal lamb receipts at
Washington. Clearance generally was good. Trad-
ing was moderately active but brisk at Phila-
delphia. Beef foreauarters and related whole-
sale cuts were in broad demand and carcass sales
normal. Outlet for veal and cilf was fairly
broad for both carcasses and cuts. Lamb move-
ment was slow at most Eastern markets while the
pork movement improved after a slow trade early.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer carcass
beef sold 504-1l.00 higher, veal fully $1.00
higher, lamb $1,00-1.50 lower, and pork cuts
steady.
Veal offerings were moderate for the week,
while other fresh meat was in normal supply.
Choice continued to be the predominant grade in
the beef division, and lamb over 554 continued
to increase in volume. Somewhat more pork loins
in the 12-164 weight rrnpe were on offer than
loins weighing under 124.
pCrcass beef trade at the best time was
only moderately active, with primal cuts account-
ing for the bulk of the movement at wholesale
levels. Outlets were trond for arm and square-
cut chucks, most segments of the trade active,
and advances of $2.00-2.50 were made. Ribs and
rounds generally fairly ?ctive but ribs closed
slow and weak, particularly on those 30# and
over. Loins were rather slow early but fairly
active late with equivalent f-bricated cuts mov-
ing well. Veal followed a higher trend in a
moderately active trade. Carcass lamb trade as
well as hindsaddles was slow. Stews and
shoulders met a fairly broad demand, while hotel
ribs were slow. Boston butts and spareribs were
in moderate demand, pork loin trade rather slow.


PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold steady to $1.00 higher with most
sales in California 50-S1.00 up. Cow and bull
beef steady to $1.00 higher. Veal supplies
were too limited to test prices but calf was
$1.00 higher in Southern California and
steady in other areas. Lamb held mostly
steady in California, but was steady to 75#
higher in Portland-Seattle. Skinned hams were
firm to $2.00 higher; loins steady to $1.00
higher; smoked hams sold $1.00-4.00 higher,
most advance was on 12-16# averages in Los
Angeles. Other cured pork items were steady
to $1.00 higher in Southern California but
steady to $1.00 lower elsewhere.
Carcass steer and heifer beef trade was
generally active under a good demand.
Supplies were normal and occasionally short
of trade requirements in the Pacific North-
west. Cow beef was fairly active and much
improved compared recent weeks. A normal
supply of lamb met a slightly broader demand.
Pork supplies were normal. Trading on pork
was moderately active in California but rather
slow in Portland-Seattle. Best outlet was
for fresh and cured hams.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, IDITTER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA !year normal supplies of steer
and heifer beef moved rather slowly early in
the week. A meat cutter's strike of three
major chain stores serving a three-State area
on the Eastern Seaboard had a depressing
effect on early demand; however, demand
improved considerably after the strike was
settled and steer and heifer beef prices
reached their highest level since March.
Compared with last week's close: The

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Spot sales of greasy domestic worsted
wools were limited due to lack of offerings in
the local market. Prices were maintained at
nominal quotations.
Trade in woolen wools was also slow while
supplies of noils were very small and prices
weakened.
Supplies of combing wools in the domestic
primary markets were small. Demand centered
on a sealed bid sale to be held at Portland,
Oregon December 13.
Cabled quotations from all foreign markets
were firm but local handlers asserted combing
wools could be purchased at a slightly lower
level than quotations indicated. Good demand
was reported from all Dominion sales. Little
was done in the South American markets with
some weakness in Montevideo.
The United States Department of Commerce
announced that the production of woolen and
worsted fabrics during the third quarter,
July-September 1961 amounted to 74.5 million
finished linear yards. This compared to the
April-June 1961 production of 78.5 million
linear yards. The July-September 1960 pro-
duction was 69.1 million linear yards.
Fleece Wools There was a recent sale
of graded 6s good French combing and staple
fleece wool around $1.15, clean basis.
Territory Wools Approximately 200,000
pounds of graded quarter-blood, low quarter,
common and braid wools will be offered at
Portland, Oregon next week. Occasional small
lots of California medium lambs wool were sold
at 354 and fall wool at 274 grease basis, de-
livered East.
Texas Wools Trade in Texas wools was
practically at a standstill. Occasional
small lots of fall wools were moved in Texas
at steady prices.
Mohair A limited volume of adult mohair
sold i Texas during the week at 80# to the
warehouse.
Foreign Wools Offerings of spot foreign
wools were limited and those offered were
slow. Montevideo super skirted 60s sold for
shipment around 94#, 58/60s at 92#, 56/58s at
900 and 50/56s around 890. Greasy Buenos
Aires November second clip for combing use
sold around 71L-72# clean fibers present for
shipment. 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 con-
tinued dull. Buenos Aires shippers offered
greasy November second clips at 750, March at
70, fleeces at 770 and lambs at 70#, all
clean fibers present for shipment. New Zealand
carpet fleeces were priced at 75-76# and early
shorn wools around 74# for shipment. Results
of the Liverpool sale on December 6 indicated
only small interest in white wools, with
tinged Jorias from 21-5 percent lower compared
to the last auction while medium wools remained
about steady.
