MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers sold 25-750 higher at
midwest markets with heifers 25-50# up. The
advance was recorded despite fairly liberal
marketing and was prompted by higher carlot
beef prices. Slaughter cows and bulls sold
steady to 50# higher. Feeder cattle and calves
were generally steady, instances 500 higher*
Barrows and gilts were mainly 75#-1.00 lower
in the third consecutive week of declining
prices. Sows sold 25-75# lower. Slaughter
lambs closed steady to 25* higher at most
centers but were steady to 50# lower at Denver
and St. Louis.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Price ad-
vances were general at all midwest points in
the face of the largest slaughter steer and
heifer receipts at seven terminal markets in
four months. Salable cattle receipts at the
12 markets were a fraction under the preceding
week and on Monday included the largest per-
centage of feeders for the season. Higher
prices for steer and heifer beef strengthened
the live trade. Slaughter steers were 25-750
higher, however, at Chicago the large supply
of steers weighing over 1450# were weak to
mostly 50# lower. Heifers were 25-500 higher
although St. Paul failed to follow the general
pattern and was steady to 250 lower. Cows and
bulls followed the advance and were steady to
500 higher. Vealers held steady at most points
although both St. Louis and St. Paul showed
advances of as much as $1.00 on Choice and
Prime.
Slaughter steers, Four loads Prime 1200-
1300# brought $26.25-26.35 at Chicago where
Choice and mixed Choice and Prime 950-1450#
sold from $24.00-26.00. At Chicago bulk Choice
and mixed Choice and Prime 1450-1600 ranged
from $22.50-23.75 with Choice 1856# $21.50.
Most Choice 900-1300# at other midwest markets
turned at $23.75-24.75, Good $22.00-23.75,
Standard $20.00-22.00.
Slaughter heifers: Choice and Prime
brought $24.00-24.25, bulk Choice $22.50-23.75,
Good $21.25-23.00, Standard $19.00-21.50.
Slaughter cows: Utility and Commercial
ranged from $14.50-16.00, Canner and Cutter
$11.50-14.50.

FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES- Receipts of
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
continued large. The movement from the south-
west tended to decrease but this was offset
by a seasonal increase in numbers from western
and northwestern mountain areas. Marketings
of feeder calves, although not overly large,
were the most liberal thus far this season. At
both Omaha and Sioux City receipts included a
significant increase in calf numbers for the
first time this fall. Shipments of mixed Choice
and Fancy yearlings and calves were increased


and a relatively liberal percent of supplies
were of Choice grade, over-all quality being at
the highest level thus far this season. A large
percent of the receipts were kinds from 700#
down, but not many were in really thin flesh,
reflecting good grazing conditions the past sea-
son. Favorable fall weather, abundant supplies
of all types of feeds, and recent strength in
slaughter cattle prices all were factors tend-
ing to stimulate demand.
Trading for the most part was fairly active
at steady prices, instances 50f higher. However,
at Omaha yearling stock steers weakened an late
rounds, some closing sales there being 500 lower.
Feeder steers: Good and Choice 800-1050#
$21.50-24.25, few loads 800-850# $24.50-24.65.
Choice fleshy 1025# were included at $22.75 but
at Omaha three loads Choice, partly fattened,
1075# sold for further finish at $24.00.
Medium and low-Good 750-1000# $19.00-22.00.
Scattered shipments Choice or mixed Choice and
Fancy 525-600# brought $27.00-28.00; bulk Good
and Choice 550-750# $22.25-26.50, two loads 740#
included at $26.50. Medium and low-Good year-
lings ranged $19.50-23.50.
Feeder heifers: Good and Choice yearlings
chiefly $21.00-24.50, several loads $24.75-
25.00.
Feeder calves: Sizeable number Choice and
mixed Choice and Fancy 500-450# steers $50.00-
33.00, two loads 297# $55.00. Other Good and
Choice 300-500# $24.00-29.50. Same grades heif-
era bulked $22.00-27.50; few loads Choice and
mixed Choice and Fancy 250-400# heifers $28.00-
32.00, one load 285# $33.00.

H008 Terminal Markets Hogs moved to
market in liberal volume during the week under
review and price declines were the sharpest
since last October. Receipts totaled 527,000 at
the 12 markets, the largest number for any
week since June. This was the third consecutive
week of declines and barrows and gilts closed
at the lowest level since June. A lower whole-
sale pork trade also contributed to the de-
clines. Sows also declined, but demand for that
class proved relatively good at the downturn.
The price spread between butchers and sows be-
came much narrower than usual and at several
markets sows under 330# sold at about the same
price as barrows and gilts.
Compared with the previous week's close,
late sales on barrows and gilts were largely
75#41.00 lower, sows 25-75# lower. Shipper
outlet was quite erratic over the area. Those
interests took 75-80 percent of the supply at
Indianapolis, but were very limited in their
buys at the western corn-belt terminals because
of continued labor difficulties on the West
Coast.
Barrows and giltes On Friday, No. 1-5,
190-27C# $17.00-17.60 at eastern Corn Belt










markets with No. 1-2, 200-240C# $17.55-17.85.
In the western part of the area No. 1-3, 190-
240# brought $16.25-16.50, No. 1-2, 200-240#
$16.50-16.75.
Sows: No. 1-5, 270-400# $15.25-16.75;
No. 2-35, 400-600#/ $14.00-16.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 5 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 99# per cut, based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
October 5 to October 11, 1961 inclusive.
Prices on feeder pigs ranged weak to 50#
lower at St. Paul and steady to 25# lower at
Sioux City, Good and Choice 1530-160# offerings
brought $15.00-16.00.
Hogs Interior Iowa and Southern Minnesota
receipts of 399,000 head were largest of the
season to-date. The marketing were 9 percent
larger than a week earlier and 15 percent more
than in the like period last year. Sows made up
about 8% of receipts. The movement was rela-
tively greater in northern than in southern sec-
tions with the result that hogs sold in a mnch
wider price range than is usually the case. With
supplies in some sections excessive for trade
requirements, prices moved generally downward.
Barrows and gilts were mostly 75# to $1.00 lower.
Sows were 50#-$1.00 lower with weights under
400# off most.
Barrows and giltas No. 1-3, 200-240#

550# $12.35-14.65.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts at the twelve
terminals totaled 129,000 head, a reduction of
7 percent from the previous week and 10 percent
under same week a year ago. Wooled slaughter
lambs continued to predominate, but shorn offer-
ings were seasonally increased.
Feeder lambs comprised 30-50 percent of
receipts, Slaughter lambs finished steady to
250 higher at most markets but were steady to
500 lower at St. Louis, Indianapolis and Denver
with shorn lambs showing a similar trend at
Kansas City. Slaughter ewes were steady to
strong, instances 500 higher; feeder lambs
steady to 250 higher at most centers and 50# up
at Sioux City.
Slaughter lambs: Choice and Prime 80-113#
wooled closed at $17.00-18.00 and to $18.50 at
Chicago and St. Louis; loadlots mainly Prime

day. Good and Choice 80-110# wooled lambs

Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior


Iowa-Southern Minnesota area numbered 20,700
head, 8 percent more than the previous week
but slightly fewer than last year. Demand was
fairly good for slaughter lambs and prices were
steady to 25# higher, instances 50# up from a
week earlier. Slaughter ewes were strong.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading in the Boston market was extremely
slow. Sales of greasy domestic worsted wools
amounted to approximately 4 cars at slightly
lower prices. Offerings were quite limited.
Activity in woolen wools and noils was practi-
cally at a standstill. Turnover in the primary
areas was limited. A sealed bid sale of ap-
proximately 1,000,000 pounds of graded and
original bag wools will be held on October 25
at Portland, Oregon while another sealed bid
sale of approximately 2,500,000 pounds of graded
and original bag territory and fleece wools
will be held at Minneapolis, Minnesota on Novem-
ber 1. Activity in Texas was practically nil.
The Crop Reporting Board of the United
States Department of Agriculture announced the
average price received by farmers for wool on
September 15, 1961 was 41.00 per grease pound.
This compared to 41.2# for August 15, 1961 and
59.54 for September 15, 1960.
Midweek cables from Melbourne, Australia
showed quotations very firm as Japan and the
Continent dominated while there was a poor
selection of free wools at Newcastle with Japan
and the Continent buying and prices advanced
about 21 percent. The Cape market was firm with
large French buyers active. The South American
markets were quiet. New Zealand will resume
auctions at Dunedin on October 18.
Fleece Wools Graded 60/62s baby combing
fleece wools sold around $1.06-1.07 clean basis.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good French
combing and staple territory wool sold at esti-
mated clean price of $1.20 while graded 64s
average to good French combing wool was esti-
mated at $1.15.
Texas Wools Offerings of 12 months wools
was very scarce in Texas. Dealers estimated
between 500,000 and 600,000 pounds remained
unsold while approximately three to four million
pounds of fall wool remained unsold. Prices
were weak.
Mohair Trading in the mohair market was
slow. PrFIces held nominal at 86E for adult,
$1.161 for kid hair to the warehouse.

The United States Department of Commerce
announced that the production of woolen and
worsted fabrics during the second quarter,
April-June, 1961 amounted to 77.5 million
finished linear yards. This compared to the
January-March, 1961 production of 65.9 million
linear yards. The April-June, 1960 production
was 80.7 million linear yards.
Foreign Wools Trade in spot foreign wools
continued dull. Occasional lots of fine Cape
topmaking wools were sold for shipment to the
United States. 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.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRAME IVIEW

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold steady
to 50# higher at New York and Washington, steady
to $1.00 higher at Baltimore, and steady at
other points. Cow beef closed steady to $1.50
lower, the decline at Philadelphia and Baltimore.
Veal and calf mostly steady* Lamb steady to
$1.00 lower. Pork loins steady to $1.50 higher.
Spareribs steady to $5.00 lower, most decline at
Philadelphia. Boston butte and fresh skinned
hams steady to $1.00 higher.
Kosher steer beef forequarters 50#-81.00
higher; kosher lamb foresaddles mostly $1.00
higher.
Receipts of beef, veal, calf and lamb were
normal and volume of pork was a little above
normal. Choice and Prime veal carcasses were
slightly increased while other grades decreased
in number. Beef trading was mostly slow at Wash-
ington and Baltimore for both carcasses and cuts
and clearance incomplete at these markets. De-
mand otherwise was mostly good and clearance
relatively broad. Veal and calf was fairly
active under fairly broad demand and good clean-
up in all areas. Lamb met moderately broad out-
let. Demand was good for all pork cuts except
spareribs which found rather poor outlet. Clear-
ance of small stock classes and pork was fairly
complete.

CHICAGO Beef sold mostly 500-$1.00 higher
for the week, veal and lamb steady, pork loins
8-16# $1.00-2.00 lower, Boston butts 4-8# 50#-
$1.00 lower, spareribs 3# down $1.00-1.50 lower.
All fresh meat in moderate supply for the
week. Beef again largely Choice grade, bulk of
the lamb carcasses weighed 35-45#. More pork
loins 12-16# available than last week.
Careass beef trade was generally moderately
active. Demand was good with all interests in
the trade for arm and squarecut chucks and
rounds, these cuts advancing around $3.00-3.50.
Beef ribs, loins and fabricated loin cuts were
slow. Moderate demand prevailed for all weights
and grades of veal. Carcass lamb moved fairly
veil. Slow trade of last week on fore end cuts
continued into the early part of this period,
however from midweek on, all cuts found equal
distribution. Spareribs 3# and down were very
slow and sold lower for the fourth consecutive
week. Pork loins and Boston butte moved fairly
well through midweek, mostly slow thereafter.


PACIFIC COAST The independent packer-
labor dispute at Los Angeles created con-
siderable interest on the west coast. How-
ever, the Southern California retail meat
supply was fully adequate as local production
was supplemented by heavy inshipments from
other areas. Normal supplies at San Fran-
cisco sold firm and clearance was generally
complete. Supply and demand was fairly well
balanced in the Northwest.

CATTLE AND CALVES ON FEED OCTOBER 1, 1961


On October 1, 1961, a total of 5,551,000 head of cattle and calves were on feed for market in the
26 major feeding States, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This was 8 percent higher than the
5,127,000 head on feed in these States on October 1 last year, but down seasonally from the 5,764,000
head on feed July 1 this year. The number on feed declined 4 percent from July 1 to October 1 this
year, compared with a 9 percent decline during the sane period in 1960.
Cattle and calves which had been on feed less than 3 months accounted for most of the increase in
number on feed over a year earlier.
The number of cattle and calves on feed October 1, 1961 in the North Central States totaled
3,545,000 head--up 14 percent from the 5,112,000 head on feed October 1 a year earlier. Iowa, the
leading State, was up 12 percent, Nebraska was up 22 percent, and Illinois increased 14 percent. All
other States in this region, except Missouri which was down 1 percent, were higher compared with last
year. South Dakota, with 28 percent more cattle on feed than a year earlier, showed the largest in-
crease in this region.
In the 11 Western States there were 2 percent fewer cattle and calves on feed October 1 than a
year earlier--1,678,000 head this October 1 compared with 1,712,000 head October 1, 1960. California,
the leading Western State, was down 1 percent and Colorado, the second ranking Western State, declined
15 percent, Idaho and Wyoming were also lower, down 6 percent and 31 percent respectively, from a year
earlier. Utah was unchanged from October 1, 1960. Other States in this region showed increases rang-
ing up to 18 percent in Washington.
Cattle and calves placed on feed during July through September this year totaled 3,172,000 head,
14 percent more than the 2,777,000 head placed during the same period in 1960. Shipments of stocker
and feeder cattle into 8 Corn Belt States (for which data are available) during July and August this
year were up 14 percent from the same two months last year.
Marketing of fed cattle during July through September amounted to 5,585,000 head, 5 percent more
than a year earlier. Marketing were only slightly higher in the North Central States but were up 4
percent in the Western States.
Beef steers and heifers (grading Prime, Choice, and Good) sold out of first hands for slaughter at
12 major livestock markets during July, August, and September totaled 1 percent below the same period
in 1960. These data do not include direct sales to packing plants, mixed lots of steers and heifers,
and some deliveries bought on prior contract.
Of the cattle and calves on feed October 1, those weighing under 500 pounds accounted for 7 per-
cent of the total this year compared with 6 percent on October 1, 1960. Cattle in the 500-699-pound
weight group made up 19 percent of the total--the same percentage as a year ago. The 700-899-pound
group accounted for 36 percent against 35 a year earlier. The number weighing 900-1,099 pounds at 32
percent compares with 33 percent of the total last year, while those in the over 1,100-pound group com-
prised 6 percent of the total this year and 7 percent last.
A breakdown of the October 1 number on feed by weight groups showed a larger number of cattle on
feed than a year earlier in all groups except those over 1,100 pounds. The number weighing less than
500 pounds October 1 totaled 372,000 head--18 percent above a year earlier; the 500-699-pound group
totaled 1,039,000 head--up 5 percent; the 700-899-pound cattle numbered 2,001,000 head or 15 percent
above a year ago, while the 900-1,099-pound group at 1,785,000 head were 6 percent more than on the
same date in 1960. Cattle weighing 1,100 pounds or more were down 3 percent to number 354,000 head.
In the 26 States, 70 percent of the cattle ano calves on feed October 1 were steers and steer
calves, 29 percent were heifers and heifer calves, and 1 percent were cows and others. The number of
steers and steer calves, at 3,923,000 head, compares with 3,609,000 head one year ago. Heifers and
heifer calves totaled 1,595,000 head, up 7 percent from the 1,492,000 head on feed October 1, 1960.
Cattle and calves on feed by length of tine as a percent of the October 1, 1961 total were: Under
3 months, 55 percent; 3 to 6 months, 23 percent; and over 6 months, 22 percent. Comparable percentages
from the October 1, 1960 report were 52, 26, and 22 percent respectively.
The number on feed under 3 months, at 3,050,000 head, was 14 percent above last year. The 3 to 6-
month group, at 1,299,000 head, was down 1 percent and the over 6 months group, at 1,202,000 head, was
7 percent above a year earlier.
Reports from cattle feeders in the 26 States indicate they intend to market 56 percent of the
October 1 inventory, or 3,109,000 head during October, November and December. If intentions are
carried out, the marketing would be 5 percent above the 2,958,000 head marketed in the fourth quarter
of 1960 from the October 1, 1960 number on feed. A breakdown by months of anticipated marketing of
the October 1 inventory during the fourth quarter of 1961 shows 59 percent to be marketed in October,
30 percent in November, and 31 percent in December. Expected marketing, as published, are based upon
the usual relationship between survey data and actual marketing.
