MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price trends were steady to 500 lower on
slaughter steers at midwest terminals with the
greatest decline on steers weighing over 1250#.
Slaughter heifers were also steady to 50#
lower. Lower steer and heifer beef prices
prompted the downturns in live trading despite
rather moderate receipts for the post Labor Day
week. Slaughter cows sold strong to $1.00
higher as cow beef advanced following two weeks
of substantial declines in both the live and
dressed trade. Stocker and feeder cattle and
calves were steady to 50# lower for the week.
Barrows and gilts sold steady to 50# lower
while sows were steady to 250 higher at most
centers. Spring slaughter lambs closed steady
to 50# lower at most markets with sales 50#-
t1.00 lower at Denver and in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steer and heifer prices continued to drift
lower at midwest markets but cows sold higher
following two weeks of sharply lower prices.
The percentage of cows in receipts dropped
although salable cattle supplies increased 11
percent at the 12 markets compared with the
previous holiday shortened week. However,
stockers and feeders formed a seasonally larger
percentage of twelve market receipts which were
18 percent smaller than the same week a year
ago. Slaughter steers finished the week steady
to 50# lower with most decline on weights over
125C0. At Chicago, where receipts were smaller
than usual Monday but larger than normal Wednes-
day, early advances running to 50# were more
than erased and steers closed steady to 50#
lower in I ine with the trend at other markets.
Heifers also closed steady to 50# lower. At
the same time cows sold strong to $1.00 higher
and bulls steady to 50f higher. Cattle price
trends reflected conditions in the wholesale
meat market where steer and heifer beef car-
casses sold lower while cow beef advanced.
Eleven percent of the Chicago steer supply
graded Prime, the same as the previous week,
while Good and Choice grades predominated in
the steer as well as the heifer supply at the
majority of markets.
Around 20 loads Prime 1150-1350S? slaughter
steers brought $25.50-25.75 at Chicago and
some Choice sold up to $25.00 in Chicago, St.
Louis and Indianapolis. A load of Choice and
Prime 10751 steers brought $24.75 at St. Joseph.
Choice 900-1300# steers bulked at $23.00-24.50,
weights up to 1500# selling down to $21.50 but
not many below $22.50. Most Good steers brought
$21.75-23.50, Choice and Prime heifers brought
$24.00-24.25, Choice largely $22.50-23.50 and
most Good heifers $21.00-22.50. Utility and
Commercial cows largely $14.00-36.00, Canner
and Cutter $11.50-15.00.


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AID CALVES -
Receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and calves
at terminal markets showed only moderate season-
al expansion and numbers were substantially
smaller in volume than during mid-September in
many previous years. Above normal range and
pasture conditions in many areas have been a
factor tending to influence later than normal
marketing and in addition there has been very
extensive range contracting this season. Good
and Choice yearling and two-year-old steers made
up a fairly large percentage-of supplies but
shipments of Medium and mixed Medium and Good
grades were fairly plentiful. Although good
late summer pasture conditions and abundant
supplies of grain and other feeds created a
widespread demand, the current price relation-
ship between slaughter and feeder cattle was
not considered overly favorable and buyers
usually were inclined to proceed rather
cautiously. Thus, trading generally was at best
only moderately active. Prices ranged from
steady to 500 lower.
Several loads Choice 800-825// feeder steers
brought $24.25 but majority Good and Choice 800-
1050# cashed from 122.00-24.00. Medium and
mixed Medium and Good feeders sold from $19.50-
22.50, relatively few below $20.50. Choice 499#
Wyoming stock steers reached $27.50 and 6 loads
Choice 507-573# $27.00. Other Good and Choice
yearling stock steers ranged $22.50-26.50, few
loads Choice 600-700# included at e26.00-26.50.
Medium and mixed Medium and Good shipments
ranged from $20.00-23.50. Good and Choice
yearling heifers brought $21.50-25.00, 2 loads
Choice 654# $25.25 and a few 550# $26.50. Good
and Choice steer calves sold chiefly from $24.50-
30.50, few $31.00. Good and Choice heifer
calves brought $22.00-27.00, few 250-500#
$27.00-29.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets The full five-day
week of marketing brought on an expansion of 19
percent in supplies of hogs at the 12 markets
as compared with the previous holiday week.
Barrows and gilts weighing 200-260# made up the
big portion of receipts, the number above 260#
being acutely small at some points. Sows dwin-
dled, comprising 12 percent of receipts at the
8 markets compared with 15 percent the previous
week. Prices for barrows and gilts advanced
early in the week, but there was a general doan-
turn on Friday. Compared with last week's close,
barrows and gilts were steady to 500 lower, St.
Paul being an exception with a 250 advance.Sows
were steady to 25# higher aside from a steady to
25# lower trend at Indianapolis and St. Joseph.
Shippers took 60 percent of the Chicago hogs
and from 30-40 percent at Kansas City, Omaha
and St. Joseph.
On Friday, most U. S. No. 1-3, 190-260#








barrows and gilts sold at -17.75-18.25, except
at Chicago where the bulk ranged up to $18.40.
No. 1-2, 200-250# $18.00-18.50 and to $18.75 at
St. Paul. At several of the markets a price
spread of only 25# included bulk of the butchers
at the close. No. 1-5, 250-400# sows brought
$15.50-17.50, 400-550# $14.50-16.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 5 live basis 200-220.Y barrows
and gilts was 81# per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
September 8 to September 14, 1961 inclusive.
Feeder pigs declined 50# at St. Paul and
were steady at Sioux City. Good and Choice
feeders brought $15.50-16.00 at St. Paul and
ranged from $15.50-16.50 at Sioux City.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area hog receipts at 356,000 head reflected an
18 percent increase over the previous week's
holiday shortened supply and 9 percent more
than a year earlier. Heavy rains the forepart
of week retarded marketing and there was some
price advance at mid-week which was later
erased under the influence of fairly liberal re-
ceipts. Barrows and gilts closed 10-15# lower,
saws steady to 250 higher.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1-5 200-240# barrows
and gilts brought $17.25-17.85, moderate volume
No. 1-2 $17.75-18.10. No. 1-5 270-400# sows
sold from $15.00-17.15, 400-550# $13.25-15.50.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12 ter-
minals numbered122,000 head, 29 percent more
than the holiday shortened period a week earlier
but 20 percent less than a year ago. Wooled
spring slaughter lambs predominated in receipts
with shorn lambs usually less than 25 percent
of the run. Feeders comprised 40 percent of
the seasornslargest run at Denver. Expanded
marketing coupled with lower dressed lamb pri-
ces were bearish factors in the live trade.
Spring slaughter lambs were steady to 50# lower
at most points and were 50(-$1.00 off at Denver.
Slaughter ewes were mainly steady, feeder
lambs 250 lower at Denver but steady at other
points.
Choice and Prime 80-110# wooled spring
slaughter lambs sold from $17.00-18.00, limited
volume $18.25-18.50; Good and Choice $14.50-
17.50 mostly $15.50-17.00. Limited numbers of
Choice and Prime 90-108# shorn slaughter lambs
No. I pelts brought $17.00-17.50, Good and
Choice 80-106# with No. 1-2-3 pelts $15.00-
17.00. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes
sold from $2.00-4.50 at most points, few to
$5.50 at Fort Worth.
Several loads and decks of Choice and
Fancy 51-72# western feeder lambs $15.00-16.50,
load $16.75 at Sioux City; Good and Choice
native feeders $12.50-15.75 including mainly
Choice $14.00-15.75.
Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area totaled 14,200, 10
percent below the previous week and 14 percent
less than last year. Heavy rainfall during the


forepart of the week slowed movement of lambs.
Spring slaughter lambs comprised fully 90 per-
cent of the supply and included around 10-15 per-
cent shorn offerings. Slaughter lambs declined
50#-$1.00, ewes were unchanged.
On Friday, Choice and a few Prime 80-105#
wooled slaughter lambs brought $16.00-16.50 de-
livered to packing plants with high yielding
lambs to $17.00; Good and Choice 80-110? $14.00-
16.00, Choice and Prime 80-105# shorn lambs
carrying No. 1-2 pelts $16.00-16.50; Good and
Choice $14.00-15.50, Cull to Good slaughter
ewes bulked at $2.00-5.00.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


General slowness for all wools at the
Boston market was influenced to a marked
degree by current religious observance
along with lack of urgency in processing
channels. Demand was good for greasy
domestic worsted types but sales volume
was small in view of very limited supplies
Otherwise demand was rather poor. Prices
were generally strong and some finer
grades advanced around 20. Scoured pulled
wools were moderately active at steady
prices. Noils were uneven, ,generally
moderately active, mostly unchanged.
Carpet wools were slow with prices finn in
the primary markets and in Boston.
Cabled reports from Australia showed
fair activity at Newcastle and Melbourne
with prices steady to firm. Japan domi-
nated with all sections supporting. Quo-
tations from South Africa were firm and
some minor advance in instances under
general competition. South American
carpet wools were steady to firm.
Fleece Wools Graded 64s and finer
sold at $1.26, half-blood good French
combing and staple $1.15-1.16, three-
eighths at $1.08 and quarter-blood at
81.06, three-eighths baby fleeces $1.02-
1.04.
Territory Wools Turnover of terri-
tory wools was practically at a standstill
aside from orders previously committed.
Texas Wools Very dull with no sales
confirmed.
Mohair Trading in the local market
was very slow with occasional lots selling
about steady.
Foreign Wools Spot foreign wools
turned at a moderate pace as demand held
generally fair. Price trends were firm on
good wools but poorer grades irregular
with easiness in spots. Cabled reports at
week's end follow with combing wools con-
verted to clean U. S. oil-combed yields
and short wools to scouring yields, in
bond.


Carpet Wools Trading dull as
offerings were scant and buyer interest
waned in comparison to recent past weeks.
There were offerings of scoured early
shorn New Zealand at 790; spot B. A.
slipe wool at 660, and Pyrenean scoured
white wool at 71# for shipment. New
Zealand crutchings 702/5 listed at 69-
70Q. Pale yellow Pakistanian wool 68f,
clean wool fibre.

their attention to filling of Government

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT "EAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass prices were
steady to mostly 500 lower; cow beef weak to
$l.00 lower, mostly 501-$1.00 off; spring lamb
$1.00 higher at Philadelphia, but steady to $2.00
lower at other centers. Veal sold steady to
$1.00 lower, except at Philadelphia where the
trend was $1.00 higher. Quotations for calf were
unchanged at New York. Pork loins closed $2.00-
4.00 lover; Boston butts steady to $1.00 higher;
fresh skinned hams averaged steady; spareribs
steady to $2.00 lower, mainly $1.00-2.00 off.
Prices for kosher Choice and Prime beef
forequarters were mainly steady to 50e lower;
lamb foreeaddles strong to $2.00 up; veal and
calf quotations were unchanged. The post-Jewish
holiday trading was moderately active.
At the various market areas along the East-
ern Seaboard supplies of fresh meats were normal,
except volume of cow beef which was small to
moderate. In the Metropolitan New York area
production of locally dressed red meats was only
moderate as Jewish holidays were observed Monday
and Tuesday. Trading for steer beef was fairly
active with demand good. At New York most chain
accounts absorbed normal requirements of rounds,
ribs and armchucks. Lamb sold at a moderately
active pace. The dullest trade was encountered
at New York for carcasses 30-45# which predomi-
nated in the supplies. Outlet was only fair at
best for veal as most retailers purchased rather
sparingly. Bulk pork loins moved late in the
week when prices were at the lowest levels and
the weather turned, cool. Clearances were broad
at all markets except New York where small sup-
plies of veal, calf and spring lamb went unsold.

CHICAGO Compared with the previous Friday,
beef sold steady to 501 lower, veal steady to
$2.00 lower. Spring lamb closed steady to $1.00
lower. Pork loins sold $3.00 lower with Boston
butte and spareribs steady.
Beef, spring lamb and pork loins were plenti-
ful. Choice beef predominated in the supply of
that class while bulk of the spring lamb fell
into the weight range of 35-50#. Most pork loins
were in the 8-12# range. Veal offerings were
again very moderate.
Carcass beef trade was rather slow through-
out with bulk of the movement at wholesale in
primal cuts. Ribs and chucks found a narrow out-
let and were under downward pressure through the
week. Rounds found moderate demand. Veal trading
was rather slow with best action on very limited
supplies grading Choice and Prime. Early in the
week spring la-' was slow but trading turned
moderately active on the close. Pork loins de-
clined for the second straight week. Boston
butts in best demand in the pork division.


PACIFIC COAST Steer beef sold steady to
500 higher, mostly steady at San Francisco, cow
beef mostly steady, instances 50# higher at
Los Angeles. Calf and veal also largely
steady, some sales in the Northwest $1.00
higher. Choice and Prime lamb sold steady in
California, steady to $1.00 higher in the
Northwest with the advance in Seattle. An
increased supply of Good lamb sold $1.00-2.00
lower. Fresh pork was largely steady, but
loins closed $1.00-3.00 lower. Bacon prices
advanced $1.00-5.00, while hams were $1.00-3.00
lower in California, other smoked pork sold
steady.
Supplies of steer beef were moderate and
occasionally inadequate for the demand, with
trading fairly active. Normal supplies of
most other meats were adequate and usually
about in balance with prevailing demand.
Demand was very good and trading active on
bacon.

CAELOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA.- Carlot beef supplies were only
moderately increased from the previous holiday-
shortened week. Demand for steer beef was
narrow early in the week influenced by con-
tinued hot weather in eastern consuming centers
and the Jewish holidays. Following the holi-
days and as the heat wave moderated in the
East around midweek, demand was fairly broad
and part of the week's earlier price declines
were recovered, particularly on Choice steer
carcasses weighing over 800#.
Steer beef prices were mainly 500 lower
for the week with Choice steer carcasses
weighing above 800# steady at Chicago and
steady to 250 lower at Omaha. At New York
Good steer beef was 504-$1.25 lower.
Heifer beef sold in a moderately active
trade with prices steady to 75$ lower, mostly
50-750 lower with some sales $1.00 off at
Omaha. Cow beef closed mostly 504-$1.00
higher.
Beef supplies were fairly well cleared
at midwest shipping centers.
Carcass lamb prices declined as increased
supplies met moderate demand. Prices were
$1.00-2.00 lower but clearance was complete
at shipping centers.
Sharply expanded supplies of pork
products moved in a slow trade with prices on
pork loins $4.00-5.00 lower at Chicago and
Omaha. Fresh hams were 75#-$1.00 higher at
Omaha. Pork carcasses at eastern wholesale
centers were weak to 500 lower.

PIG CROP REPORT SEPTEMBER 1961


The number of sows farrowed and intended to farrow in the fall of 1961 (June
through November) for 10 Corn Belt States is 2 percent more than in 1960, the same
as 1959, and 16 percent more than the 1950-59 average, according to the Crop Report-
ing Board. The number is now estimated at 4,457,000 head for the 10 States (Ohio,
Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, Nebraska, and
Kansas). Fall farrowings are up from a year earlier in 7 States but down in Ohio,
Indiana, and Jisconsin. Increases are 11 percent in Kansas, 10 percent in South
Dakota, 6 percent in Illinois and Nebraska, 5 percent in Missouri, 2 percent in Iowa,
and 1 percent in Minnesota. The September 1 survey indicates a decrease of 94,000
sows or 2 percentage points from the farrowings intentions reported for these States
as of June 1, 1961. The 10 States included in this report accounted for 75 percent
of the United States 1960 total pig crop.
Sows farrowed in the 10 States during June, July, and August totaled 2,257,000
head, about the same as for this period a year earlier. This is 4 percent less than
was indicated for this period in June. June-August farrowings for these 10 States
represent 51 percent of the estimated June-November total, compared with 52 percent
in 1960 and the average of 52 percent. Farmers' reports indicate that the number of
sows farrowed in June and July will be slightly more than for these same months a
year earlier, with August farrowings indicated at less than a year earlier.
Sows bred and intended for farrowing in September, October, and November this
year in the 10 States totaled 2,200,000 head, 5 percent more than a year earlier and
20 percent more than the average. This number is about the same as intended for
this period in June.
Reported breeding intentions indicate 1,845,000 sows to farrow during the 1962
winter quarter (December-February), compared with 1,768,000 sows farrowed during the
same period a year earlier. This is an increase of 4 percent. All States except
Ohio indicate more sows to farrow during this quarter than a year earlier. Increases
are Nebraska, 15 percent; Kansas, 12 percent; Minnesota, 11 percent; South Dakota,
10 percent; Missouri, 6 percent; Illinois, 4 percent; Iowa, 5 percent; Wisconsin and
Indiana, 2 percent. Intentions in Ohio are down 5 percent.
The number of all hogs and pigs on farms September 1, 1961 in the 10 States
totaled 50,191,000 head. This is 6 percent larger than the 47,163,000 head a year
earlier. Increases in 9 of the States ranged from 1 percent in Ohio to 20 percent
in South Dakota. Numbers in Wisconsin were 2 percent smaller than a year earlier.
Hogs and pigs 6 months old and over totaled 10,078,000 head, 7 percent more than
last year. The number under 6 months of age was 6 percent larger than last Septem-
ber. Larger litters account for some of the increase as only 4 percent more sows
farrowed in the 10 States during the March-August period compared with a year ago.
The number of hogs and pigs 5 6 months of age was 10 percent above last September.
Pigs under 5 months were 2 percent above a year ago. The 24,157,000 head in the 3 -
6-month age group comprised 48 percent of the September 1 total. The 15,976,000 head
under 5 months of age accounted for 32 percent of all hogs and pigs.
This report for these 10 States is made possible by matching funds provided
jointly by State agencies and the United States Department of Agriculture under
provisions of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946.

COLD STORAGE HOLDINGS OF MEATS AND LARD, AUGUST 51, 1961

Warehouse stocks of red meats totaled 598 million pounds on September 1, a decline
of 47 million pounds from August 1. This reduction compares with a decline of 71
million pounds during August last year and the 5-year average decline of 74 million
pounds. September 1 stocks of beef, at 170 million pounds, were 11 percent above
August 1960 and 28 percent above the 5-year average. A 47-million pound net reduction
in total pork stocks brought September 1 holdings to 142 million pounds. This compares
with a 74-million pound decline during August 1960 and the average reduction of 65
million. Frozen pork declined 46 million pounds to 109 million pounds and cured pork
declined one million pounds to 52 million pounds. Other meats declined 10 million
pounds to total 86 million pounds on September 1.
