MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers sold steady to 25# lower
and heifers steady to 500 lover for the week
at most midwest terminals as early upturns
were more than erased. Slaughter cows also
declined late to close about steady. Feeder
cattle and calves sold steady to 500 higher.
Hog prices were 25-50# lower. Spring slaugh-
ter labs were steady to 500 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers and heifers advanced on Monday at most
major markets, but a small increase in receipts
after Monday coupled with lower dressed beef
prices saw early upturns erased with slaughter
steers finishing the period generally steady
to 25# lower; heifers steady to 500 off. The
principal exception at Chicago where steer and
heifer prices did not show strength at any
time and steers closed steady to 754 lower,
heifers 25-750 off. The percentage of cows
and stockers and feeders showed little change.
Cows extended recent upturns early in the week,
but declined late to close about steady at the
majority of points. Vealers sold steady to
$1.00 higher at St. Louis and St. Paul. Good
and Choice steers and heifers formed the bulk
of receipts at most markets. The average
weight of steers at the 7 markets was 1116#
compared to 1121# the preceding week and 1129#
a year ago. At Kansas City 48 percent of the
arrivals were stockers and feeders and 25 per-
cent of the St. Paul cattle supply consisted
of cows,

STOCKER AD FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Fairly large late September receipts of feeder
cattle and calves at terminal markets werelittle
different in volume than the previous week but
continued to fall short of the numbers marketed
during the corresponding period a year ago.
Overall quality was at the highest level- thus
far this season. A relatively large percent of
the supplies were Choice and there was a moder-
ate showing of mixed Choice and Fancy shipments.
Prices generally were steady to 50# higher, how-
ever, trade activity varied considerably between
markets. At several terminals the market slowed
on late rounds and early advances were largely


erased. In contrast, late week auctions at
several other markets were on a stronger basis
than early week price levels.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
bulked at $22.00-24.25, few loads Choice and
mixed Choice and Fancy 800-875# $24.75-25.25.
At Omaha four loads Choice 1166# brought $23.00.
Scattered shipments Choice and mixed Choice and
Fancy 500-600# brought $26.80-28.0, two loads
457# $28.50. Bulk Good and Choice 550-7500
sold from $22.50-26.50 Medium and low-Good
$20.00-25.50.
Feeder heiferst Good and Choice yearlings
$21.00-25.25, Choice 537# $26.00. At Sioux
City few loads Good and Choice fleshy 825-831#
cashed from $21.75-22.50.
Feeder calves: Moderate numbers of Choice
and Fancy 500-425# steers sold from $30.00-
53.00, 2 loads 3C0# $34.00; bulk Good and
Choice $24.00-29.00. Same grades of heifers
bulked at $22.00-27.00, few loads Chcice and
mixed Choice and Fancy $27.50-31.25.

HS Terminal Markets A combination of
increased receipts and lower prices for dressed
pork at wholesale levels contributed to lower
hog prices at most midwest terminals. At some
centers a few more hogs scaling above 240# put
in an appearance but as a general rule weights
above 240# remained rather scarce. Sows
accounted for 12 percent of the 8 market supply.
Compared with the previous week's close, down-
turns of 25-50* were general on barrows and
gilts with sows steady to 50# lower. However,
at Indianapolis butchers were steady and sows
advanced 50-75*. At Sioux City there was a lag
in shipper purchases due to labor difficulties
on the West Coast. Indianapolis on the other
hand saw 65 percent of supplies go into shipping
channels while Kansas City reported 45 percent
going on shipping account.
Barrows and giltsi On Friday U, S. 1-3,
190-260# sold from $17.50-18.50, but largely
$17.75-18.25, some No. 1-2, 200-240# $18.00-
18.55 in the western part of the Corn Belt, and
$18.25-18.85 in the eastern part of the area.
Sows: No. 1-5, 270-400# $16.00-17.50, No.
2-3, 400-600# $14.50-16.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 5 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 95# per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork outs at Chicago
September 21 to September 27, 1961 inclusive.
Feeder pigs: Prices were steady. Good
and Choice 130-160# $15.50-16.00 at St. Paul,
and $15.50-16.50 at Sioux City.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area hog receipts for the week at 555,000 head
were the largest for any week since February.
Approximately 85-90 percent of butcher supply
weighed 200-240Q Sows accounted for about 8
percent of receipts. A small price advance









Monday was erased by gradual declines on later
sessions which resulted in barrows and gilts
closing fully 25-50f lower than the previous
Friday. Sows were 40-50# lower.
On Friday, mixed U. S. 1-5 200-240#
barrows and gilts sold from $17.00-17.50 with
limited volume No. 1-2 from $17.25-17.15.No. 1-8
270-400# sows $14.75-16.90, 400-550# $12.85-
15.40.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
markets numbered 140,000head, an increase of
11 percent from the previous week and a year
ago. Wooled spring slaughter lambs predomi-
nated in receipts although shorn offerings in-
creased seasonally. Feeder lambs comprised 19
percent of the supply at Omaha and 50 percent
at Denver. The expanded number of slaughter
lambs marketed met with fairly good demand at
most points and prices were generally steady to
50 higher. Slaughter ewes were steady. Feeder
lambs were steady at most centers but steady to
25# higher at St. Joseph and 25# lower at
Omaha.
Spring slaughter lambs: Choice and Prime
85-110# wooled $17.00-18.50 at many markets,
mostly Prime to $18.75 at Denver and to $19.00
at a few markets; Good and Choice 75-110#
$15.00-17.75 including many sales $16.00-17.50.
Choice and Prime 90-114# shorn with No. 1 and 2
pelts cashed from $16.50-17.50, sparingly

$18.50 at Chicago; Good and Choice 85-105#
$15.00-17.00, mostly sales $16.00-17.00.
Slaughter ewes: Cull to Choice shorn
$2.00-4.50 at most terminals but wooled ewes
reached $6.00 at Fort Worth.
Feeder lambs: Choice and Fancy 52-88#
brought $14.00-15.50 and reached $16.75 at
Omaha; Good and Choice $12.00-14.75.
Breeding ewes: Most Good and Choice year-
ling through three-year-old $8.00-14,00, solid
mouth $5.00-8.00.

Sheep and lamb marketing in the Interior
lowa-Southern Minnesota area at 17,900 head
was 10 percent below the previous weekend
the corresponding week a year ago. Decreased
receipts and price advances on dressed lamb
were bullish factors and the week's trend on
spring slaughter lambs was strong to 50#
higher. Slaughter ewes were steady. Spring
slaughter lambs accounted for around 90 percent
of receipts with shorn offerings about 15 per-
cent of the lamb supply,
Spring slaughter lambs: Choice and Prime
85-105# wooled sold from $16.50-17.50 delivered
to packing plants, Good and Choice 85-110#

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


About nine or ten cars of greasy
domestic combing wools were sold this week
at the Boston market at steady prices.
There was a fair demand with supplies ex-
tremely small.
Activity in woolen wools and noils
was dull with prices on noils and domestic
pulled wools steady to firm, but with some
weakness showing on foreign pulled wools.
Little was done in the domestic
primary areas and offerings were limited.
Midweek cables from the Australian
auctions showed a good selection of top-
making merino wools. Quotations earlier
in the week were one penny lower and un-
changed at midweek with general compe-'
tition and more Japanese buying compared
to a week ago. In Adelaide, prices were
irregular with the Continent, Japan and
England operating. In South Africa there
was an excellent selection with prices
irregular to two pence lower and France
was the principal buyer. Activity in
South America was dull with some interest
in only Argentine carpet wool types.
Fleece Wools Graded 62s staple
fleeces sold at $1.12 clean basis while
56/58s staple and good French moved at
$1.08 and graded 50/54s staple wool
brought $1.06 clean basis, all on a core
test. Graded 50/54s baby combing wool
sold at an estimated clean price of $1.01.
Territory Wools Graded territory
62s good French combing and staple wool
sold on a core at $1.14 and $1.15 clean
basis.
Texas Wools Little was done in
Texas wools during the week with some
sales weak on fall wools.
Mohair The mohair market was very
dull ith most activity concerned with
shipping previous orders from warehouses
in Texas. Occasional sales of adult
mohair were made at 86E4 and kid hair at
$1.162 to the warehouse.
Foreign Wools Turnover of spot
foreign wools was very dull. Cabled re-
ports at week's end follow with combing
wools converted to clean U. S. oil-combed
yields and short wools to scouring yields
in bond.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT M.AT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
uneven along the Seabonrd with New York steady to
50W higher, Choice carcasses at Philadelphia
25-500 lower and Good steady to 50e higher while
prices at other markets were largely steady.
Cow beef was strong to 504 higher, but steady to
weak at New York. Veal and calf sold steady to
$1.00 higher, except at Philadelphia where Choice
was strong to $1.00 higher and Good and below
$1.00-2.00 lower. Lamb sold steady to 1.00
higher; pork loins $1.00-6.00 higher; fresh
skinned hams steady; spareribe $1.00-4.00 lower;
Boston butts steady to $1.00 higher, except at
New York 50~ lower.
During the week when Jewish holidays were
observed, prices for kosher steer forequarters
were steady to $1.00 lower, spring lamb $1.00-
$2.00 lower, Quotations for veal and calf
were unchanged.
Trading in general was moderately active at
Eastern markets, with lamb and pork loins moving
best in all areas as demand was fairly broad for
these meats and clearance was good with chain
outlets absorbing the bulk of the supply. Interest
in pork was spontaneous with the turn to cooler
weather in the East. The beef movement centered
primarily on rounds and chucks and in view of ex-
panded cutting operations there were accumulations
of loins and ribs with a resultant carryover at
some points. Clearance in general was poor.
Veal and calf met fair demand and cleared well,
except at New York where small lots of fore-
saddles went unsold. Local non-kosher slaughter
was above normal at New York, particularly on
veal and calf. Supplies of western dressed meats
including pork were generally normal at most
markets.

CHICAGO Carcass steer beef sold weak to
504 lower, heifer 50-75e lower. Veal was mostly
steady but some individual cuts were uneven.
Laib sold steady to strong. Pork loins were
steady to 50# lower; Boston butts $1.50 higher;
spareribs $4.0C-4.50 lower,
Supply of all fresh meats was normal, while
supply of veal continued small.
Carcass beef trade was slow throughout the
week and as a result most of the movement at
wholesale levels was in primal cuts. Arm and
souarecut chucks found the best outlet. Ribs
and loins were very slow with downturns of as
much as t2.00 on ribs. Demand for rounds improved
late. Good to Prime veal sold largely steady.
Trading on lrmb was moderately active and all cuts
except loins found good outlet at strong prices.
Pork loins worked higher early but supply over-
rode demand and prices were lower at midweek and
closed only strong. Demand was good for Boston
butts the entireweek but limited on spareribs
each day.


PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer beef sold
mostly steady in the Northwest, stendy to 504
lower in California except for a 504 advance
on Standard in Los Angeles. Cow beef was
steady to 504 higher, but mostly steady in
Los Angeles. Calf and veal sold on a largely
steady basis, instances $1.00 lower in San
Francisco. Lamb held steady at all points.
Fresh pork was rather uneven, largely steady
to S1.00 higher; however, spareribs were weak
to $5.00 lower, the greatest decline in San
Francisco. Smoked pork sold about steady,
except for a $1.00-4.00 lower trend on bacon.
Trading on steer beef was slow and
supplies were liberal and exceeded the pre-
vailing demand. Cow beef was somewhat short
of the demand. Lamb supplies were below
normal but adequate for a narrower demand.
Pork trading was fairly active on moderate
supplies. Unsettled labor conditions in the
Los Angeles area had an effect on the trade
in that area.

CARLOT MIEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Demand was poor for beef all
week and carlot steer and heifer prices were
lower. The extremely slow carlot trade re-
flected the general sluggish movement of beef
from wholesalers' coolers early in the week.
Most carlot action was confined to midweek and
later when demand showed minor improvement.
Supplies were normal and little changed from
the previous week.
Prices on steer beef late were steady to
mostly 500 lower, some sales 750 to $1.00
lower on Choice 500-800# carcasses at Omaha.
Heifer beef sold 504 to S1.00 lower, largely
754 to t1.00 off. Cow beef was steady to 500
lower at Chicago but strong to 504 higher at
Omaha and Denver where demand again exceeded
supplies. In spite of the slow trade and low
price trends, supplies were fairly well cleared
at shipping centers.
Carcass spring lamb moved in a moderately
active trade with prices steady to $1.00
higher. Clearance was good on lamb.
Supplies of pork products were increased
from the previous week. Demand was good for
pork loins, particularly early and prices
moved sharply higher. The advance was lost
in the later trade and closing prices at
Chicago were $1.50 lower than the previous
week's close. However, at Omaha prices were
around $1.00 higher. Pork butts were mostly
$1.00-1.50 higher and fresh hams were 500
higher at Omaha. Normal supplies of pork
carcasses were mostly steady at New York and
Philadelphia.
