MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price trends on slaughter steers and heif-
ers fluctuated mildly at midwest terminals and
closed steady to 25f higher for the week at
most points. However, sales were steady to 25S
lower at Chicago and St. Joseph. Reduced
marketing of steers and heifers generally off-
set the bearish influence of a slow and lower
dressed beef trade. Slaughter cows sold steady
to 25f higher at most centers. Feeder cattle
and calves were steady to 500 higher. Early
declines on barrows and gilts were more than
recovered toward the close and the week'sa
general trend was steady to 25 higher but sows
were steady to 25 lower. Slaughter lambs sold
steady to 50 lower except largely 50 higher
at Denver and Kansas City.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Steers and
heifers sold unevenly at midwest terminals, but
price changes were small. Closing prices were
steady to 25f higher at most markets except
Chicago and St. Joseph steady to 25 lower.
Cows were generally steady to 250 higher, bulls
steady to 500 higher, Vealers were steady.
Slaughter steers and heifers were under
pressure in the early part of the week, but
due to reduced supply, prices firmed late de-
spite the slow movement of dressed meat. Re-
ceipts of cattle at the 12 markets were 7 per-
cent below a week ?go and the smallest in six
weeks. Slaughter steers and heifers made up
the bulk of the run at most centers with Good
and Choice predominating. Cows and feeder
cattle accounted for a normal seasonally large
percentage of the supply.
Slaughter steers: At Chicago Monday a
load of Prime 12509 reached 26.75 and bulk
Choice and Prime 950-1400? .24.00-26.00 with
loadlots Choice and mixed Choice and Prime
1450-1650# $22.50-23,75. Load Choice 1821#
$22.50. At other midwest terminals, Choice
900-1300# $23.50-24.50, few mixed Choice and
Prime 324.75-25.50. Choice 1400-1575# $22.00-
23.75. Good bulked at $22.25-23.25 over the
Corn Belt area with Standard $20.50-22.00.
Slaughter heifers: Mixed Choice and
Prime brought ?24.00-24.25, load 903# $24.35;
bulk Choice 022.50-23.50, Good $21.50-22.50,
Standard %19.00-21.25.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
sold from S14.50-16.00, Canner and Cutter
mostly $12.00-14.50.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES Late October
receipts of feeder cattle at terminal markets
were seasonally liberal in volume but fell
short of the numbers marketed either the pre-
vious week or a year ago. Receipts of feeder
calves were the largest thus far this year but
even so were below a year ago. Although the
nation's cattle population is at an all-time
high, numbers of feeders marketed at terminals


throughout the summer and fall of 1961 have
totaled fewer than in many past years. Quality
continued at a seasonally high level. Choice
and mixed Choice and Fancy shipments comprised a
relatively large percent of terminal supplies.
Although the price relationship between
slaughter and feeder cattle is less favorable
for profitable feeding operations than last
year, demand continued good and prices gener-
ally steady to 500 higher. One of the very few
exceptions to that trend developed at Kansas
City where the market was steady to 50# lower.
Average cost of all feeder steers 501# up at 10
markets the week ended October 26 was $23.39
compared with 322.25 for the same week a year
ago. Meanwhile, average prices for feeder
calves 500# down figured nearly $3.00 over a
year ago. In contrast, the average price for
all slaughter steers sold out of first hands
at the 7 markets during the current week at
$25.99 was only 2f above a year ago.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-10009
largely $21.50-24.50, few loads Choice 790-900#
$24.25-25.25. Medium and low-Good 750-950#

Fancy 525-615# $27.00-29.00, load 560# at
$29.00; Good and Choice 550-750# largely
$22.75-26.50.
Feeder heifers: Several loads Choice 496-
526# $25.00; bulk Good and Choice yearlings
$21.00-24.75.
Feeder calves: Sizable number Choice and
Fancy 300-4509 steers $51.00-36.50, 2 loads
339-358# $37.00, many Choice $29.00-31.00;
other steers of Good and Choice grades $24.00-
28.50. Scattered shipments Choice and Fancy
heifers brought $28.50-31.00; other heifers of
Good and Choice grades $22.50-28.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Barrows and
gilts sold steady to 250 higher for the week at
most Corn Belt terminals as early downturns at
some markets were more than recovered toward the
the close. At Sioux City and St. Joseph the
week'sa trend was 25-500 higher, but sales at
Chicago were weak to 35f lower. Sows sold
steady to 25f lower at most centers with sales
25-50f off at Indianapolis and Kansas City.
The moderate reduction in receipts from
the previous week coupled with good demand in-
fluenced the higher prices for barrows and
gilts despite lower prices on dressed pork.
Barrows and gilts: No. 1-3, 190-260#
closed from $16.25-16.75; No. 1-2, 190-240#
$16.75-17.00.
Sows: No. 1-3, 270-400/ $14.50-15.75; No.
2-3, 400-600# $13.50-15.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220C barrows
and gilts was 940 per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
October 19 to October 25, 1961 inclusive.











Hogs Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area direct receipts at 525,000 head 'were
around 12 percent less than the previous week
and about equal to the corresponding week last
year. Barrows and gilts closed steady to 150
lower, sows weak to 25# lower.
On Friday, No. 1-3 200-240# barrows and
gilts sold at $15.50-16.25 with No. 1-2 from
$16.00-16.50. U. S. 1-3, 270-400# sows mainly
$14.25-15.50, 400-550# $12.75-14.25.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts at the 12
terminals totaled 119,000 head, 7 percent be-
low a week earlier and 15 percent less than
last year. Wooled offerings predominated at
most markets. Feeders comprised between 15-40
percent of receipts at many centers but made
up 65 percent at Denver. Some price strength
late failed to offset earlier declines, and,
for the week, slaughter lambs were steady to
500 lower; exceptions were 50 upturns at
Kansas City and Denver. Slaughter ewes were
steady to 500 higher. Feeder lambs were
steady at many centers; exceptions were de-
clines of 25-50 at Sioux City and 50f-$1.00
off at St. Joseph; feeders at Denver were
steady to 500 higher.
Slaughter lambs: Choice and Prime 85-
115# wooled $16.50-17.50 at most points, but
$17.00-18.90 at Denver. Good and Choice 75-

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic worsted wools
in the Boston market continued extremely slow
with current week's traffic confined mostly to
small sales of various grades. Fine wools were
very scarce with medium grades mainly on offer
but in relatively small quantity. Prices were
little changed from a week previous.
Woolen wools were moderately active under
moderate to fair demand and noils were fairly
active with prices steady to firm. A fair
volume of pulled wools moved at firm prices.
Trading in Texas wools was dufl.
Broad interest currently on sealed bid
sale just concluded at Portland, Oregon with
many people from this area participating. Re-
sults of this sealed bid sale at Portland,
Oregon on October 25 as follows: Original bag
fine 64s $1.18-1.25; graded 60/62s $1.06-1.17,
mostly $1.10-1.12; graded 56/58s $1.06-1.08;
graded 50/54s $1.04-1.11; graded 46/50s 980;
braid 810, all combing length wools, clean
basis, delivered East. Better than 500,000
pounds sold. Demand very good, prices firm.
Midweek cables from Australia showed
Brisbane opened with good selection of Merinos
and keen competition with Continent and Eastern
Europe the chief buyers and prices strong to
around 20 higher. The trend was similar at
Geelong with principals same as above and com-
peting on free wools. At Australian markets
Russia became active after the opening and
buyers operated freely. Prices held very firm
at Melbourne. New Zealand auctions resumed at
Invercargill and reported prices varied some-
what, however the market had upward tendencies
for the most part. Medium cross-bred wools
appeared easy while low cross-bred sold firm.
South America remained quiet and prices weak
while very little activity reported for South
Africa.
Fleece Wools Activity in the fleece wool
States and in Boston was very dull with only
small lots transacted at steady prices.
Territory Wools Sales recorded above con-
stituted the major turnover currently as only
a sprinkling moved locally at unchanged prices.
Texas Wools Twelve-month wools were
practically non-existent but offerings of medium
fall wool quite liberal. No sales of consequence
were reported.
Mohair Reports generally indicate trading
at a standstill.
Foreign Wools Local outlet was limited
at about steady prices. 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.

lower, pork loins $2.50-3.00 lower, Boston butts
$1.00-1.50 lower, spareribs $1.00 lower.
Beef, lamb and fresh pork appeared in normal
volume with Choice the predominant grade in beef,
Good relatively scarce. Lamb for the most part
Choice weighing 35-50#. All grades about equally
represented in a moderate veal supply.
Carcass beef trade generally was slow as
were most primal cuts. All weights of ribs met
a broad demand, volume accounts proving best
outlet. Arm and squarecut chucks were rather
slow but prices went unchanged and clearance was
fairly complete. Hindquarters, rounds and loins
were slow, fabricated loin cuts also draggy.
Veal prices declined for the second straight
week under narrow demand. A slow early lamb
trade turned moderately active by midweek. Fresh
pork trade generally was slow, loins following
a lower trend on each session. Spareribs now
at their lowest level in over a year.


PACIFIC COAST Independent Packer-Labor
difficulties were settled at los Angeles and
slaughter resumed. xopndied supply, the re-
sult of renewed operations and continued
inshipments, created an unsettled market situ-
ation. Steer and heifer beef trade only
moderately active at San Francisco but fairly
good clearance was effected. Generally slow
beef trade prevailed in the Pacific !'orth-
west; however, clearance normal.
Carcass steer and heifer beef 50o-$1.00
lower at Los Angeles, steady in the San Fran-
cisco Bay area, steer steady to 254 higher
and heifer firm to 754 higher in the Pacific
f1orthwest. Steer beef cuts moved at a moder-
ately active pace, mostly steady except arm
chucks weak to $1.00 lower at Los Angeles.
Calf and veal steady to $1.00 higher but
supply very limited in Southern nClifornia;
lamb steady to $1.00 lower. Fresh pork rather
slow, $1.00-3.00 lower with most downturn on
loins. Sliced bacon weak to $3.00 lower;
smoked hams and picnics steady in California
but weak to $1.00 lower in the Portland-
Seattle area.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER. OFAHA, NEW YORK AND

beef was poor early in the week despite below
normal supplies at shipping points. However,
the moderate supplies met fairly good demand
by midweek. This resulted in a moderately
active trade.

500 lower except Choice 800-900# 25-500 higher
at Chicago and Philadelphia. Good steer beef
sold 500 higher at Philadelphia. Trading was
uneven on heifer beef with prices mainly steady
to 500 higher although some sales were $1.00
lower at Denver where western outlet narrowed.
Cow beef sold steady to 504 higher. Beef was
generally well cleared at shipping centers.
Carcass lamb at New York and Omaha sold
fully steady to strong while prices advanced
504-$1.00 at Chicago and Philadelphia but at
Denver prices were 504 lower. Clearance on
lamb was only fair.
Supplies of pork were normal and pork
loins sold from $2.00-3.50 lower and pork
butts were steady to 500 lower. Fresh hams
