Slaughter steers and heifers sold steady to
500 lower for the week at most midwest markets
with Good and Choice steers weighing above 1500#
501-1.00 lower at Chicago. Increased marketing
prompted the moderate downturns in the face of
higher dressed prices. Trends on slaughter cows
were 500-1.00 lower as cow beef declined $1.00-
1.50. Stockers and feeders were fully 500
higher at Omaha and strong to 500 up at Denver,
but steady to 500 lower at Sioux City and Kansas
City and 500-1.00 off at Oklahoma City, other
points steady. Barrows and gilts were steady to
250 higher over most of the Corn Belt with sows
steady to 500 higher. Spring slaughter lambs
were generally steady to 250 higher, but de-
clined 50f at Chicago and Kansas City.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Price trends
on slaughter steers and heifers at midwest
terminals were uneven but generally steady to
500O lower. At St. Joseph prices declined as
much as 750 onheifers and Chicago recorded a 50w-
1.00 lower trend on Good and Choice steers
weighing over 1500#, but declines were of very
moderate proportions at most points. Steer
prices in St. Paulwere fully steady and heifers
were steady to 250 higher, and in Chicago most
heifers were steady to 500 higher with a few
Standard and low-Good steady to 500 lower. A
broad Eastern outlet prompted a steady to strong
trend on all Prime steers in Chicago. Cow prices
were generally 500-1.00 lower, influenced by a
sharp downturn in the dressed trade. Bulls sold
250-1.00 lower. Vealers were steady at St. Paul,
but $1.00-2.00 lower at St. Louis. Receipts at
the 12 terminals were increased fully U1 percent
and the largest since mid-January. Part of-
the increase was due to expanded stocker and
feeder marketing. However, the number of
slaughter steers and heifers sold out of first
hands at the 7 markets at 120,209 was the largest
since mid-June. The decidedly bearish influence
which ordinarily accompanies liberal supplies
was softened to a great extent by upturns on
steer and heifer beef. Good and Choice slaughter
steers and heifers continued to predominate in
receipts at most points. Only a moderate number
high-Choice and Prime steers were offered at
most terminals but in Chicago the percentage of
Prime was 14 percent.
Bulk of the Choice 900-1550# steers brought
$25.00-24.50 with most Good 900-1250# at $21.50-
23.50,with some high-Good and Choice 1350-1600#
at $21.75-25.75. High-Choice and Prime steers
sold at $24.25-25.00 with many loads 1100-1400
from $24.50-25.75 in Chicago where 6 loads Prime
1175-1520# cashed at $26.00-26.50. High-Choice
and mixed Choice and Prime heifers sold from
$25.50-24.00 wiile Choice brought $22.50-23.75
and Good $21.00-22.50. Utility and Commnercial
cows bulked at $14.00-16.50, Canner and Cutter
$12.00-15.00.


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Marketings of stocker ind feeder cattle and
calves expanded seasonally. Much of the in-
crease was composed of yearling and two-year-
old steers while supAlies of stock calves con-
tinued relatively small. Most of the supply
was made up of Good and Choice cattle. There
was considerable unevenness during the week
in price tiFends and degree of trading activity
at the different markets. Omaha recorded
fully 50O higher prices and sales at Denver
were strong to 50 higher. However, at Kansas
City and Sioux City prices were steady to 500
lower, Oklahoma City 50O-1.00 lover, others
steady.
Good and Choice 800-1100d feeder steers
brought $21.50-24.50, load Choice 850#$24.75.
At Kansas City, Choice and Fancy 800-950#
brought $24.00-24.50. Medium and low-Good
steers sold from $19.00-22.00. At Omaha, two
loads of Choice and Fancy 584# yearling stock
steers cleared $28.25. A few loads of Choice
551-550 brought $27.00-27.25. Majority of
the Good and Choice 525-775# steers realized
$25.00-26.50, Medium and low-Good $20.00-
25.50. Good and Choice stocker and feeder
heifers sold from $21.50-25.50, including
Good fleshy 785# at $21.50 and Choice fleshy
740# offerings at $22.80, Medium and low-Good
heifera $18.00-21.50. A part load of Choice
and Fancy 500# steer calves at Sioux City
reached $56.00 with the 500# heifer mates at
$55.00. Most Good and Choice stock steer
calves sold from $24.50-28.50 with a few
loads of 500-450# reaching $52.00. Good and
Choice stock heifer calves brought $22.00-
26.50 with a few lots Choice to $28.00.

HDOGS Terminal Markets Hot and humid
weather over much of the Corn Belt proved but
little deterrent to marketing of hogs at the
12 centers during the last week in August.
Supplies were about 1,700 head over the pre-
ceding week and were 26,000 head above the
same week of last year. As in recent weeks
No. 1-5, 200-260# barrows and gilts accounted
for the bulk of the receipts with weights over
260# being very scarce. However, butchers
below 20C0# were in rather liberal supply at
some points and occasionally met narrow de-
mand. Sow supplies were somewhat below the
preceding week, making up 15 percent of the
8-market total. Prices for barrows and gilts
were generally steady to 25# higher although
St. Louis recorded a weak to 250 lower trend.
St. Paul at the other extreme was 25-500
higher. Sows ranged from steady to 50f
higher, several markets recording 25-500 up-
turns. At most centers shippers and packers
competed rather actively for supplies al-
though toward the close of the week shipper
demand diminished at some points because of

the long weekend holiday. At Kansas City,
shippers took 59 percent of the receipts, but
at St. Joseph purchases for outside accounts
totaled only 56 percent or a drop of 9 percent
from the previous week.
On Friday, most U. S. No. 1-5, 190-260#
barrows and gilts sold at $18.50-19.00. Some

ceding week and of 16 percent when compared
with a year earlier. Bulk of the barrow and
gilt supply consisted of 200 to 250# weights

bounds and barrows and gilts closed steady to
100 higher and sows mainly 250 higher. On
Friday, mixed No. 1-5 200-240# butchers sold

nalA totaled 101,000, compared to 86',000 the
previous week and 96,000 during the correspond-
ing week last year. Spring slaughter lambs
comprised the bulk of receipts and included a
few more shorn lambs. Approximately 50-55 per-
cent of lamb supplies at Denver and Sioux Falls

merino wools and advances of 21-5 percent com-
pared to the Adelaide closing sale. Japan was
the principal operator with the Continent sup-
porting and general competition. At midweek
merino wools were one penny lower with crossbred
wools unchanged at Melbourne. Trading was slow
at the New Zealand and South African markets.

to the warehouse. with extra kid selling from

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold steady to
$1.00 higher; cow beef steady to $1.00 lower;
veal steady to $3.00 higher and calf at New Yoirk
fully $1.00 higher; spring lamb steady to $1.00
higher, except at Washington, steady to $2.00
lower; pork loins $1.00-3.00 higher, except New
York, mostly steady, instances $1.00 higher;
Boston butts steady to $1.00 higher; spareribs
steady; fresh skinned hams $3.00-5.00 lower at
most market centers.
Prices were strong to $1.00 higher at the
close for kosher steer forequarters; lamb, veal
and calf steady.
Clearance was mostly complete on the Eastern
Seaboard, aside from some beef chucks unsold late
at Washington. Supplies of beef and lamb were
mostly normal; veal, calf and pork moderate to
normal. Total receipts at Philadelphia were cur-
tailed slightly, particularly evident late in the
week. Trading on beef and veal was moderately
active under generally good demand. Beef ribs,
steak cuts and hinds under 175# moved best4
Lamb was only moderately active; at New York
chucks, loins and ribs outsold legs, and carcass
sales were below normal. Demand for pork was
fairly broad with best action at midweek. Fresh
skinned hams lagged at New York due primarily to
poor demand from the processing channels.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold mostly
steady, instances 500 higher, veal and spring
lamb steady, pork loins 8-16# $4.00-4.50 higher,
Boston butts 4-8# $1.00 higher, spareribs 3# and
down 500-$1.50 higher.
Veal supply continued small while other
fresh meat was in about normal volume. Beef for
the most part graded Choice, with a slight de-
crease in the volume of Prime. Bulk of the
spring lamb fell in the 35-50# bracket, and most
pork loins scaled 8-12#.
Carcass beef trading was rather slow as
primal cuts accounted for the bulk of the move-
ment at wholesale levels. Loins and particularly
ribs 38# and down had broad outlets, ribs work-
ing higher. Spotty chuck and round movement at
the outset improved and from Wediesday on trade
ruled moderately active. A moderate early
demand for veal narrowed on late sessions but
small offerings cleared. A moderately active
trade prevailed on spring lamb. All primal lamb
cuts moved well except legs. All listed pork
cuts were in fair demand, loins scoring daily
advances. Current pork loin prices were the
highest since July 12th.

PACIFIC COAST Prices on steer and heifer
beef' were steady to 500 lower; cow steady to 50#
higher, the advance in California. Veal and
calf held steady. Spring lamb sold steady to


$1.00 lower in California, but steady to $1.00
higher in the Northwest. Fresh pork was
steady to $2.00 higher, except some volume
sales loins $1.00 lower in Los Angeles.
Smoked skinned hams steady to $3.00 lower,
other pork mostly steady, except sliced bacon
$1.00-2.00 higher in Los Angeles.
Supplies most meats moderate but adequate
for pre-holiday demand. Choice steer over
700# and cow beef in moderate to small supply.
Spring lamb supply burdensome in Los Angeles.
Demand moderate for most meats.
