MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices were generally steady on slaughter
steers weighing under 1300# at Corn Belt Cen-
ters while heavier steers were steady to 50*
lower, and Prime steers declined 500-41.00 at
Chicago. Slaughter heifers were steady to
strong. Slaughter cows were steady to $1.00
lower. Stocker and feeder cattle and calves
were steady to 50f lower at most points. Bar-
rows and gilts were mainly 25-50f lower for
the week with sows uneven but generally steady.
Spring slaughter lambs were steady to 500 high-
er at most terminals but sold steady to 50#
lower at Chicago and 50#-$1.00 off at Denver,

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers 1300# down were generally steady at mid-
west terminals. The trade on heavier steers
was under the bearish influence of non-slaugh-
tering kosher holidays and prices were steady
to 50# lower. The same factor drastically cur-
tailed the slaughtering requirements of eastern
packers for Prime steers which sold 50#-$1.00
lower in Chicago even though supplies of such
cattle at that terminal were smaller than dur-
ing recent weeks. Heifers were uneven but gen-
erally steady to strong although Good heifers
declined 50-75# at St. Paul. Cows were steady
to $1.00 lower in another week of price de-
clines as cow beef sold sharply.lower. Bulls
sold 50#-41.00 lower while dealers were steady
at both St. Louis and St. Paul. Receipts at
major terminals were substantially below the
previous week due to the lose of Monday,
normally the heaviest marketing day, the
Labor Day Holiday. Supplies were little differ-
ent from the corresponding holiday period a
year ago. Comparatively moderate receipts and
a steady to 500 higher trend on steer and heif-
er beef at most major centers led to the de-
pendable outlet that the bulk of the steers
and heifers enjoyed at most points. Good and
Choice slaughter steers and heifers predomi-
nated in the supplies at most markets but the
proportion of stocker and feeder cattle con-
tinued rather large at several centers.
Bulk of the Choice 900-1300# steers sold
from $23.00-24.75, Good $21.50-23.50. Loadlots
Choice and mixed Choice and Prime 1300-1500#
steers brought $22.50-24.00, and at Chicago
bulk of the Prime and mixed Choice and Prime
sold from $23.50-25.50. A few loads of Prime
1200-1520# moved at $25.50-26.00 in Chicago
where Prime 1400# sold up to $24.50. High-
Choice and mixed Choice and Prime slaughter
heifers brought $23.75-24.25 while Choice sold
at $22.50-25.75 and Good $21.00-22.75. Utility
and Commercial cows sold at $13.00-16.00; Can-
ner and Cutter $11.50-14.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Although marketing were interrupted by a Monday
holiday, receipts of stocker and feeder cattle


and calves at terminal markets were only moder-
ately smaller than the previous week and little
different in volume than the same week a year
ago. Average-Medium to average-Choice yearling
and two-year-old steers predominated. Stock
calves continued in relatively small supply. A
widespread demand existed for most all classes
of stockers and feeders but even though some
buyers apparently were eager to purchase their
supplies, many were of the opinion current price
levels were relatively high in relation to
prices for slaughter cattle and as a result were
inclined to proceed rather cautiously. Thus,
price trends and degree of trading activity
varied considerably at the different markets.
For the most part prices were steady to 50#
lower. At Wichita and Fort Worth trading early
in the week was on a steady basis but at both
markets late week auctions found prices steady
to 50# higher.
Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers
bulked at $22.00-24.50, several loads Choice
800-900 $24.75-25.25. Four loads Choice 982#
brought $24.00 while two loads 782? reached
$26.25. Good and Choice 525-750# yearling
steers sold chiefly from $22.75-26.50. Several
shipments 600-650# brought $27.00 and two loads
575# reached $28.50. Medium and low-Good year-
lings ranged $20.00-23.50. Good and Choice
yearling heifers brought $21.50-25,00, few
loads $26.00-26.50. Six loads Medium 625# heif-
ers went at $20.75. Good and Choice steer
calves sold largely from $25.00-29.00 but occa-
sional shipments of Choice ranged from $29.50-
32.50 and a few around 300# reached $33.50.
Good and Choice heifer calves sold from $22.00-
27.50, few 225-325# $28.00-31.00.

HDGS Terminal Markets The effect of the
Monday holiday on marketing was partly offset
by fairly liberal receipts later in the week.
Supplies at 12 terminals were 8 percent below
the preceding period but were 3 percent above
the holiday week last year. Barrows and gilts
weighing 190-260# of mixed U. S. No. 1,2 and 5
grades made up the bulk of receipts. At some
points where the supply of 240-290# butchers
was small, there was little or no price differ-
ential on hogs of the same grades over this
range of weights. Weights below 190Q found
poor outlet at most markets. Volume of sow
marketing decreased at the same proportion as
barrows and gilts with sows comprising 15 per-
cent of the eight-market total, the same as
in the preceding week. The combination of
generous receipts for-the season of the year
and declining prices in the carlot trade for
pork loins and fresh hams had a depressing
influence on live prices. Barrows and gilts de-
clined 25-500 for the week at most points but
closed mostly 75# lower at St. Paul while sales
at St. Louis were steady to weak. There was a









mixed trend on sws with prices steady at
several points, but sales were steady to 25#
lower at St. Joseph and 25# lower at Omaha while
the trend was 25# higher at St. Louis. Shippers
played a prominent role in the buying at sever-
al centers, taking from 30-40 percent of the
receipts.
On Friday, most U. S. No. 1-5, 190-260#
barrows and gilts sold at $17.75-18.50, some
No. 1-2, 200-240# $18.40-18.75. No. 1-5, 500-
400# sows $15.50-17.50, 400-600# $14.25-16.00.
Feeder pigs declined 50# at St. Paul with
Good and Choice 130-160# offerings at $16.00.
Prices were steady at Sioux City, Good and
Choice 130-170# feeders $15.50-16.50.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled 284,000 head
for the holiday shortened week, compared with
291,000 the preceding week and 289,000 a year
earlier. Marketing expanded considerably imme-
diately following the holiday and receipts
Tuesday reached the largest volume of the season
to date. Prices bent downward early under the
impact of the liberal receipts but part of the
declines were recovered late when receipts were
moderate. Barrows and gilts were mostly 15-25#
lower for the week. Good demand prevailed for
saws and prices advanced 15-25#. On Friday,
mixed No. 1-5 200-240# barrows and gilts sold
from $17.55-18.00, mostly $17.50-17.90, with a
limited volume No. 1 and 2 $17.65-18.40. No.
1-3 270-400# sows brought $15.00-17.25; 400-
550#, $13.10-15.25.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12 ter-
minals at 94,000 head, compared very closely
with the supply during the corresponding four-
day period last year, but were 6 percent less
than previous five-day marketing week. Bulk
of supplies were spring slaughter lambs, how-.
ever, at Denver about 40 percent of the lambs
were feeders. Higher dressed lamb prices proved
a bullish influence in the live trade as some
price strength was noted at most markets.
Closing spring slaughter lamb prices were gener-
ally steady to 50# higher than the previous
Friday, although sales at Chicago were weak to
50# lower, and Denver 500-1l.00 off on a late
decline. Slaughter ewes were mostly steady.
Feeder lamb sales were fully steady with St.
Paul strong to 500 higher.
Most Choice and Prime 80-112# spring
slaughter lambs brought $17.00-18.SO with some
$18.75 at Chicago and to $19.00 at St. Louis. At
Denver, Choice to mostly Prime range and San
Luis Valley lambs sold from $18.50-20.05. Good
and Choice 75-110# lambs ranged from $15.50-
17.50, few $18.00. Limited volume Choice and
Prime 85-11# shorn spring slaughter lambs with
No. 1 and 2 pelts sold at $16.50-18.00; Good
and Choice $15.50-17.00. Cull to Choice shorn
slaughter emes sold mainly at $3.00-4.50.
Most Good and Choice 55-84# spring feeder
lambs brought $13.50-15.25 and few loads and
lots mostly Choice and Fancy $15.50-16.00 with a


load 70# reputation lambs $16.25 at Sioux City.
At Denver two loads 84-90# lambs in Good and
Choice slaughter flesh went on shearing account
at $15.90-16.10.
Approximately 15,800 sheep and lambs moved
to slaughter within the Interior lowa-Southern
Minnesota area during the holiday week compared
with 17,000 the previous week. Bulk of receipts
were spring slaughter lambs with about 10 per-
cent carrying shorn pelts. Spring slaughter
lambs closed mostly 50# higher than the previous
Friday, the small showing of shorn slaughter
ewes mainly steady.
Choice and Prime 80-105# spring slaughter
lambs delivered to packing plants brought
mostly $17.00-17.50 on Friday with few high-
yielding lambs $17.50-18.00; Good and Choice
mainly $15.00-16.50. Limited showing Choice and
Prime shorn spring lambs with No. 1 and 2 pelts
sold from $16.00-17.00, few $17.25. Cull to

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADI RBITEW

ASTUN SEABOARD Steer carcass
prices were steady to $1.00 higher, the up.
turns recorded on some lots at New York and
Washington; cow beef weak to mostly $1.00-
1.50 lover; calf fully $2.00 off. Veal vaes
$1.00-3.00 lower at New York, but a steady
trend prevailed at other centers. Spring
lamb sold steady to mainly $1.00 and $2.00
higher, the advances made at New York and
Washington. Pork loins were steady to
$3.00 up, mostly $1.00 higher: fresh skinned
hams $1.00 to $4.00 lover; Boston butts and
spareribs steady.
Price advances of $1.00-1.50 were made
on Choice and Prime kosher steer forequar-
ters. Lamb sold largely $1.00-2.00 up;
veal and calf steady. Trading was very
active for steer beef and lamb while outlet
was only fair'for veal and calf.*
Supplies of fresh meats were normal,
however, production at local slaughter
establishments was above normal in the
Metropolitan New York area in view of Jewish
holidays. During the short work week red
meats and pork moved into retail channels
at a slow to moderate pace. Demand was
fair to broad for steer beef and lamb.
Steer beef generally sold as wholesale cuts,
while the lamb carcass trade at New York
was rather brisk. At most markets outlet
wae good for veal, however, at New York
trading was extremely slow for veal and
calf carcasses, hindsaddles and foresaddles.
Buyers were fairly aggressive for pork
loins, Boston butts and spareribs, but fresh
skinned hams were in poor demand for the
second consecutive week. Small to moderate
supplies of veal and calf went unsold at
New York, however, clearances were broad
for other meats along the Eastern Seaboard.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef held
steady, veal steady to $2.00 lower, Choice
and Prime steady; spring lamb $1.00-1.50
higher, pork loins $1.00 lower, Boston
butts $1.00-1.50 higher, spareribs steady*
Beef, spring lamb and fresh pork were
in normal volume, with Choice the most
plentiful in beef supply. Spring lamb was
mainly weighing from 35-50# with 55-65#
rather scarce. Pork loins again were mostly
in the 8-12# range. Small veal offerings
at the outset increased late.
Carcass beef trade was moderately ac-
tive after initial session, with bulk of
the movement at wholesale in primal cuts.
Ribs, loins and chucks moved fairly well
throughout the week, although some interests
reported chucks somewhat slow on the close.
Rounds were slow and accumulated to burden-


some proportions. Yeal trade was slow, in-
creased offerings of Good and below weighing
less than 80# under most pressure. Moderately
active lamb trade coupled with higher costs the
past two weeks accounted for the upturn on lamb.
Lamb legs slow moving item but fore-end cute
along with loins had adequate outlets. Boston
butts were readily absorbed, but demand was
rather narrow for pork loins and spareribs,
loins working lower following substantial up-
turns in the pre-holiday trade.

PACIFIC COAST Steer and heifer beef
sold steady to 50$ higher in all areas; cow
beef, veal and calf steady. Spring lamb held
steady except for an advance of $1.50 for some
sales at Seattle. Fresh pork sold steady to
$2.00 higher; smoked pork uneven, bacon steady
to $3.00 higher, other items mostly steady ex-
cept smoked hams steady to $2.00 lower in the
Northwest.
Supplies of most meats were moderate to
small being reduced by the shortened slaughter
week due to Labor Day Monday. This shortened
supply situation stimulated trading, and with
demand moderate, clearance was.good.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEW

CHICAGO, DENVER, OMAHA, NEW YORE, AND
PHILADELPHIA Carlot beef supplies were
moderate and considerably reduced from the
previous week's liberal supply. Extremely hot
weather in eastern consuming centers, coupled
with approaching Jewish holidays left demand
rather poor. Trading was slow and Choice
steer carcasses over 800# were particularly
hard to move late.
At Omaha and New York, late sales of
steer beef were steady to 50W higher, however,
Choice over 800# closed 25-500 lower at Omaha.
At Chicago and Denver, prices were steady to
50$ lower, some sales $1.00 lower at Denver.
Choice steer beef sold steady to 50$ lower at
Philadelphia while Good advanced 25-50#.
Heifer beef prices were uneven and closed
25-50$ higher at Omaha, mostly steady at
Chicago and steady to 50$ lower at Denver and
Philadelphia. Cow beef declined and sold
steady to $1.50 lower, mostly $1.00 off.
Clearance on beef supplies was near com-
plete at shipping centers.
Supplies of spring lamb were moderate
and carcass prices advanced 500-$1.50, mostly
$1.00 and offerings were well cleared in the
Midwest area.
Supplies of pork were sharply reduced,
demand was limited and trading slow. Pork loins
at Omaha and Chicago closed $1.00-1.50 lower,
pork butts mostly steady and fresh hams de-
clined around $2.00 at Omaha. Pork carcasses at
eastern wholesale centers were strong to mostly
50$ higher for the week.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trade in the Boston wool market was
generally dull during the post-holiday week.
Sales volume aus sharply reduced compared with
a week previous although there were numerous
sales of small lota. Good interest for practi-
cally all grades of wool was evident with sus-
tained fair demand for greasy domestic worsted
types. Prices were steady to strong. Demand
was good for domestic wools but supplies were
limited. Woolen wools and noils were slow and
quotations unchanged.
A modest volume of greasy fine, half and
quarter-blood sold in the fleece wool States
while activity in the territory States was very
limited.
The Crop Reporting Board of the United
States Department of Agriculture announced the
average price received by farmers for wool on
August 15, 1961 was 41.2* per grease pound.
This compared to 41.5# for July 15, 1961 and
59.80 for August 15, 1960.
Midweek cables from Australia showed Japan
dominating and absorbing the major share with
Eastern Europe and England also active.
Auctions at Brisbane were fully up to the Sydney
closing with scoured locks very firm. Adelaide
opened the week with the market a little lower.
New Zealand and South African markets were quiet
with an occasional offering of carpet type wools
from New Zealand at steady to strong prices.
Fleece Wools Good French combing and
staple sold at *1.22; half-blood good French
combing and staple $1.12 and three-eighths at
$1.08.
Territory Wools Greasy 56/58s California
lambs wool sold at 46# and scoured medium mid-
western lambs wool at 95Z.
Range sales were virtually at a standstill
with no sales of consequence reported.
Texas Wools Trading was limited on Texas
wools and trading very slow.
Mohair Prices were strong with limited
sales ma Ely for future export demand.
Foreign Wools Spot market was slow.
Prices generally firm. Demand for worsted con-
tinued good while there was recent mild upsurge
in interest for woolen wools. Topmakers were
active for Cape and Australian offerings but
sales volume short of week ago. 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.
