MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW
and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers and heifers sold steady
to 250 higher at most midwest markets, while
cows held generally steady. Feeder cattle and
calves were steady to strong. Barrows and
gilts ranged steady to 25# lower, except at
eastern Corn Belt terminals where sales were
50f to $1.00 lower. Sows declined 25f41.50.
Slaughter lambs sold 500 to $1.00 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Prices for
slaughter steers and heifers worked higher at
midwest terminal markets despite a steady to
50# lower dressed beef trade. The advance
developed largely in response to reduced market-
ings of slaughter steers and heifers and the
previous weeks higher dressed market. Slaugh-
ter steers and heifers ranged steady to 250
higher except heifers were 250 lower at Omaha
and steady to 25# lower at Sioux City. Cows
were generally steady, here again Omaha the ex-
ception, 25-500 lower. Bulls steady to 50#
higher and vealers generally steady except St.
Paul, one of the leading centers, $2.00 lower.
The 12 market supply was 4 percent above a week
ago and the largest for any week since October
of 1960. Good and Choice steers and heifers
made up the bulk of the run at most centers
with 13 percent of the steer supply at Chicago
Prime.
Slaughter steers: Four loads Prime 1175-
1350# $26.25 at Chicago where most Choice and
Prime 950-1400# sold from $24.00-26.00 with
Choice 1400-1525# $23.75-24.50 and Choice 1750?
$23.00. At other midwest terminals Choice 850-
1300# $23.75-24.75, few mixed Choice and
Prime $24.75-25.00 and Choice 1550-1600# $22.85-
23.50. Good bulked at $22.00-22.75, Standard
$20.50-22.00.
Slaughter heifers: Mixed Choice and Prime
brought $24.00-24.25, load Prime 1025// $24.40;
bulk Choice $22.50-23.75, Good 21.50-22.00,
Standard $19.00-21.50.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
ranged from $14.50-16.00; Canner and Cutter
$12.00-14.50.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Supplies of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
were the largest thus far this year and for one
of the very few times in recent months receipts
approximated those of the corresponding week in
1960. Quality was at a seasonally high level.
A liberal number of Choice grade was marketed
and moderate numbers of mixed 'Choice and Fancy
were offered. Yearling and two-year-old steers
continued to predominate but calves made up a
larger percent of the run than during any pre-
vious week this season, many coming from the
northwest and western mountain areas. Favora-
ble weather conditions, abundant supplies of
grain feeds and in many areas fairly good late


pasture conditions all were factors tending to
stimulate demand. Thus, even though supplies
were liberal, trading generally was fairly
active, mostly at steady to strong prices. At
Sioux City steers over 800# sold steady to 500
lower while at other markets calves and light
yearlings in some instances were 50# higher.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1000#
sold from $21.00-24.25, majority $21.50-24.00.
At Omaha three loads Choice 807# reached $25.25.
Medium and low-Good 750-950# brought $19.00-
21.75. Occasional shipments Choice or mixed
Choice and Fancy 525-650# $27.00-29.00; bulk
Good and Choice 550-750# $22.50-26.50.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice yearlings
sold from $21.00-24.75, most sales $21.00-
24.00. However, at Omaha Choice 628# reached
$25,00.
Feeder calves: Moderate number Choice and
Fancy 300-450# steers $532.25-35.25; many Choice
$29.00-52.00; Good and Choice $24.00-28.50.
Good and Choice heifers ranged $22.50-28.00;
moderate number Choice and Fancy heifers $28.50-
52.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets The volume of hog
marketing held to much the same pattern as in
recent weeks. Receipts numbered 5539,000 at .
12 markets, a shade over the previous week and
12 percent over a year ago. Another period of
lower prices lengthened the stretch of declines
to four consecutive weeks. Eastern markets,
Chicago, St. Louis and Indianapolis, which were
in a very favorable position in the preceding
week, were the targets for the sharpest down-
turns in the current period. Wholesale pork
prices were sharply lower and this contributed
to the decline of live hogs which included sows
as well as barrows and gilts.
Compared with previous week's close, bar-
rows and gilts were largely steady to 250 lower,
although sales at St. Louis, Indianapolis, and
Chicago were 50-.$1.00 off. Sows were 25-750
lower, extremes $1.00-1.50 off at Chicago and
Indianapolis.
Shipping outlets it some of the Missouri
River markets occasionally showed some improve-
ment as hopes brightened over settlement of the
Los Angeles labor dispute.
Barrows and gilts: On Friday, most No.
1-5 190-260# sold at $16.00-16.75 with No. 1-2,
190-240# $16.-5-17.00, a few reaching $17.25
at Chicago.
Sows: No. 1-35, 250-400# $14.50-16.00; No.
2-5 400-600C $13.75-15.00.
Prices on feeder pigs were steady to strong
at St. Paul and steady to 250 lower at Sioux
City. At. St.'Paul Good and Choice feeders
brought $15.50-16.00 and $15.00-15.75 at Sioux
City.
Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota









area receipts at 369,000 head were about 8
percent short of the previous week, but around
17 percent more than a year ago. Late sales
of barrows and gilts were unevenly steady to
250 lower with some of the early decline re-
covered late in the week. Sows, mostly steady.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1-3 200-240# barrows
and gilts sold at $15.65-16.25 with moderate
volume mostly No. 1 and 2 from $15.85-16.50.
U. S. No. 1-3 270-400# sows brought $14.25-
15.50; 400-550# mostly $12.75-14.25.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the twelve
markets numbered 128,000 head, a slight reduc-
tion from the previous week and the correspond-"'
ing period last year. Wooled slaughter lambs
predominated at most centers; feeder lambs
accounted for 20-50 percent of the lamb supply
including Denver and Sioux City at the latter
figure. Lower dressed lamb prices and season-
ally broad numbers of slaughter lambs were
bearish factors in the live trade and slaughter
lambs declined 50-$1.00 at most markets.
Slaughter ewes were steady to 500 higher.
Feeder lambs were steady at most points, but
25-50# higher at Denver and steady to 250 lower
at Sioux City.
Slaughter lambs: Choice and Prime 80-3115#
wooled $16.50-18.50, late sales mainly $16,50-
17.50. Good and Choice 80-110# wooled $14.00-
17.00 late. Choice and Prime 80-111# shorn
offerings with No. 1-2 pelts finished the period
at $16.00-17.00; Good and Choice 80-113#
$15.00-16.50.
Slaughter ewes: Cull to Choice wooled and

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass prices
were steady to 751 higher. Cow beef, veal and
calf sold steady; lamb steady to $1.00 lower,
except at New York where prices closed S1.50-
3.00 lover; pork loins $1.00-4.00 off, bulk
$2.00-3.00 lower. Price declines of $1.00-2.00
were recorded for Boston butts and spareribs ;
fresh skinned hams steady.
Prices for Choice and Prime kosher steer
forequarters were mostly 501 higher; veal and
calf steady. Kosher lamb prices declined $2.00-
4.00. Retailers absorbed normal requirements of
steer beef, veal and calf, but outlet was very
poor for lamb.
Receipts of steer beef and lamb were normal;
cow beef moderate; veal, calf and pork moderate
to mostly normal. Trading was particularly slow
for steer beef at New York and Philadelphia with
demand poor for most carcasses and cuts. At
other markets, however, outlet was moderate.
Little difficulty was encountered in moving veal
and calf as clearance was normal along the
Eastern Seaboard. The lamb trade was moderately
active except at New York where carcasses of
lamb were liberally shown at the close. On early
sessions retailer demand was poor for pork loins.
but around Wednesday and thereafter the trade was
active and substantial early price declines on
loins were partly recovered late in the period.
Other fresh pork cuts moved fairly well. Moder-
ate supplies of steer beef and lamb were unsold
at New York.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef closed
steady to weak, veal steady to $1.00 lower, lamb
steady to 500 lower, pork loins 500-1.00 lower,
Boston butta $2.00-2.50 lower, spareribs steady.
Beef and lamb were offered in normal volume
for the week with bulk grading Choice to low-
Prime, comparatively small portion grading Good.
Normal fresh pork supply at the outset decreased
to moderate proportions Wednesday. Veal supplies
were moderate.
Demand for carcass beef only moderate at
best and trading was generally rather slow. Arm
and squarecut chucks and rounds were not nearly
as active as during the previous week, however,
movement for the most part was satisfactory.
Ribs found fairly broad demand. Loins were on
the draggy side but fabricated cuts were in fair
demand and kept inventories from becoming burden-
some. Veal trade was rather slow but sellers
were able to hold the price line. A moderately


active lamb trade slowed late in the week and
this along with narrow demand for most primal
cuts influenced lower prices. From midweek on,
lamb stews and shoulders found fairly broad
outlet. Fresh pork trade generally slow, how-
ever, early declines mostly recovered late as
supplies decreased.

PACIFIC COAST Carcass steer and heifer
beef sold mostly steady: however, Good steer
and Choice heifer beef sold steady to 500
lower in Los Angeles, steady in San Francisco
and steady to 50# lower in the Portland-Seattle
area. Calf and veal went untested in Los
Angeles but was about steady at other points.
Cow beef mostly steady in San Francisco, steady
to 50 lower at Los Angeles and weak to $1.00
lower in the Northwest. Lamb was steady in
California, weak to 251 lower elsewhere. Fresh
pork loins were $1.00-3.00 lower in California;
other pork cute mostly steady all areas; sliced
bacon $1.00-4.00 lower; hams weak to $2.00
lower in the Northwest, other cured cuts held
about steady.
Trading was active for steer and heifer
beef in Los Angeles, supplies most meats gener-
ally plentiful except Standard steer carcasses
very scarce. Trading was slow in the Portland-
Seattle area, moderately active in San Fran-
cisco; cow beef rather slow.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORK AND
PHILADELPHIA Steer and heifer beef prices
declined under narrow demand. Trading was
slow all week. Supplies were fully normal.
At the close, steer beef was steady to
500 lower except Choice 800-900# carcasses
were 50e to $1.00 lover at Philadelphia.
Heifer beef sold steady to 501 lower. Cow
beef was steady to 751 higher. Heifer beef
supplies were well cleared at shipping centers
but steer beef clearance only fair.
Carcass lamb prices declined sharply
under poor demand. Prices were $1.00-2.00

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Slowness dominated the entire wool picture
with trading very limited in all channels.
Sales consisted of only scattered lots. Easi-
ness permeated the general price structure with
current sales edging the low quotation in all
instances. Demand was poor throughout for the
small supplies.
Much interest focused on sealed bid sale
to be held at Portland, Oregon on October 25
where approximately one million pounds, both
graded and original bag territory wools will be
on sale. Around two and one-half million
pounds are scheduled for sealed bid sale Novem-
ber 1 at Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Midweek cables from Australia showed prices
fully 10 lower. Sydney and Adelaide offered a
good selection of topmaking Merino wools and
there was generally good competition with Japan
and the Continent dominating and England active
after Wednesday. Reports from New Zealand
showed very unsettled condition at Dunedin which
opened on October 18 with good competition but
sales confined to carpet wools and specialty
lots. Japan and Eastern Europe were the princi-
pals with Bradford abstaining. In South Africa
there was moderate activity at East London and
Capetown and prices unchanged. South American
markets were very quiet.
Fleece Wools Sales of fleece wools were
very limited in the Boston market. Some Delaine
equivalent to a carload was sold at around
$1.20-1.22.
Territory Wools No sales were reported
for the current week.
Texas Wools Trading on Texas wools was
limited at steaiy prices.
Mohair No sales were confirmed for
current period.
Foreign Wools Trading was extremely dull
with limited imported business. Prices for the
main were around 2# lower and turnover compara-
ble to last week as odd lots fine topmaking
wools made up majority transacted. Cabled re-
ports at weeks end follow with combing wools-
converted to U. S. oil-combed yields and short
wools to scouring yields, in bond.

COLD STORAGE HOLDINGS (O MEATS AND IARD, SEPTEMBER 50, 1961

Red meat supplies totaled 373 million pounds on October 1, down 20 million from a
month earlier. These stocks were 8 percent under those of October 1 a year ago but
4 percent greater than average. The reduction of 20 million pounds compares with
58 million during September 1960 and 54 million, the average change for the month.
A contraseasonal reduction brought beef holdings down 1 million pounds to 166 million.
A year ago at this time, a 9 million pound gain brought beef stocks up to 162 million
pounds. Average holdings for October 1 are 156 million pounds while the average gain
during September is 5 million pounds. Pork holdings declined seasonally but by an
amount smaller than both a year earlier and average. Stocks, at 126 million pounds,
were down 15 million since September 1. During September last year, a reduction of
65 million pounds brought stocks down to 158 million pounds. The average September
withdrawal is 31 million pounds and average stocks of October 1 are 150 million
pounds.
