MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW
and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price trends were generally steady to 500
highest on slaughter steers and heifers at mid-
west markets. Reduced numbers of steers over
1200# shared in the upturn and sold 504-$1.00
up at Chicago. Higher cow beef prices influ-
enced a steady to $1.00 higher trend on slaugh-
ter cows. Stockers and feeders were largely
steady. Barrows and gilts were steady to 500
higher at some markets but were mainly steady
to 500 lower at Chicago, St. Paul, Indianapolis
and St.Louis and mostly 10-350 lower in the
Interior-Iowa-Southern Minnesota area. Slaugh-
ter spring lambs were 5O04-$1.00 off at most
points.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers and heifers sold steady to 50 higher
at midwest terminals erasing a portion of the
previous week's price decline. Steers over
1200# were 504-$1.00 higher in Chicago,.but
heifers Good and below sold steady to 500
lower. The only other major exception was a
steady to 500 lower trend on steers in St.
Joseph. Cow prices were steady to $1.00 higher.
Bulls were steady to 500 higher while vealers
were steady to $1.00 lower at St. Louis but
$1.00 higher in St. Paul. Receipts at the 12
markets were 18 percent larger than for the
holiday shortened period the previous week.
Good and Choice slaughter steers and heifers
predominated with marketing of steers over
1200# showing a marked reduction from recent
weeks. This tended to lessen the price discrimi-
nation for steers over 1200#. However, lighter
weights continued to find the broadest outlet.
The demand for heifers was broad.
Choice steers 850-1200# sold from $21.50-
23,00 while 1200-1500# brought $20.50-22.50.
In Chicago one load of Prime 1295# steers sold
at $24.OO while most Prime and mixed Choice
and Prime 1050-1550# moved at $21.00-23.50 with
1300# down largely $22.00-23.50. Good steers
bulked at $20.00-22.00. A few high-Choice and
mixed Choice and Prime heifers sold at $23.00-
23.25 while Choice brought $21.50-23.00 and
Good $19.50-22.00. Utility and Commercial cows
sold at $14.00-16.50; Canner and Cutter $12.50-
15.00.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Generally small to moderate receipts of stocker
and feeder cattle and calves were very unevenly
distributed between the various terminal
markets. At Oklahoma City numbers were among
the largest for that market since last October.
Meanwhile, supplies at both Kansas City and
Sioux City were relatively moderate even though
supplies at the latter market included 30 loads
of Canadian origin. At Omaha only 7 percent of
the salable cattle receipts consisted of stock-
ers and feeders, and at several other terminals


supplies were hardly large enough for an ade-
quate test of price trends. Medium and Good
grades continued to predominate although a
moderate percent of the over-all supply con-
sisted of Choice and mixed Good and Choice offer-
ings. Prices at most markets varied but very
little from an unchanged basis, principal ex-
ceptions being at St. Louis and Oklahoma City
where the trend was steady to 500 lower. The
relationship between prices of stockers and
feeders and slaughter cattle currently reflects
a less favorable margin to stocker and feeder
buyers than at this time a year ago. Conse-
quently, buyers generally were inclined to pro-
ceed very cautiously. Even so, they showed
somewhat more inclination than in recent past
weeks to compete with slaughterers for some
weights of fleshy steers suitable for a short
turn in the feedlot. However, very few steers
over 950# were purchased by feeder buyers. Most
dependable demand centered on weights from 850#
down.
Good and Choice 700-950# feeder steers
brought $20.00-23.00, several loads Choice 950#
$21.75-21.90. At Chicago Choice 750# reached
$23.75. Medium and low-Good feeders cashed from
$18.00-20.50. Good and Choice 500-700# stock
steers brought $21.50-26.00, most sales $25.00
down. Good and Choice yearling heifers sold
from $20.00-23.50, several loads Choice 442-
547# Montana heifers $2.0O0-25.oo00. Good and
Choice 300-500# steer calves ranged $23.00-28.50,
same grades heifer calves $20.00-25.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Marketings of
hogs at the twelve markets were increased by 15
percent over the previous holiday week but were
8 percent smaller than the corresponding week
of a year ago. The supply included an increased
volume of 180-200# spring barrows and gilts and
a somewhat smaller showing of 260-300# butchers.
Mixed No. 1-3 190-260# barrows and gilts predom-
inated in the supply. Sow marketing are near-
ing the season's peak with about 35 percent of
the supply at South St. Paul comprised of that
class while at most other points sows made up
9 27 percent of the runs. Considerable
unevenness developed in prices with the best de-
mand centered on 210-250# barrows and gilts with
weights under 200# relatively hard to move ex-
cept at prices 25-750 under the 210-250# aver-
ages. Barrows and gilts closed uneven with
prices steady to 500 higher at part of the
markets while sales were steady to 500 lower at
Chicago, Indianapolis and St. Paul. At St.Louis
180-230# butchersclosed steady to 25S lower
with weights 180# down 500 off, however, offer-
ings over 230# were steady to 250 higher reflect-
ing the preference for 230-260# butchers which
was also prevalent at most other markets. The
general trend on sons was steady to 500 higher,








but sales were steady to 250 lower at St. laul.
U. S. No. 1 and 1-2, 190-2L0# barrows and
gilts bulked late at $17.7,-18.25, few No. 1
reaching $18.75 at Omaha and Indianapolis.Mixed
U. S. 1-3, and 2-3, 190-250# bulked at $17.50-
18.00 with an extreme range of $17.00-18.50,
U. S. 1-3, 270-600# sows sold at $12.50-16.00,
limited number U. S. 1-2, 270-330# $16.50 at
Indianapolis.
Prices on feeder pigs held steady at St.
Paul and Sioux City. Good and Choice 130-170#
feeders at Sioux City brought $15.50-16.50, same
grades 130-160# at St. Paul $16.00-16.50.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled 276,000 head,
11 percent over the holiday shortened period
last week and slightly over the corresponding
week last year. Early price upturns on barrows
and gilts were more than erased later resulting
in 180-2b0# barrows and gilts 10-350 lower than
the previous Friday; 240-270# butchers steady
to 2?5 lower and heavier weights steady to 250
higher. Sows 270-330# sold steady to 250
lower and heavier sows 25-500 lower. Sows
accounted for around 19 percent of receipts.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1-3,and No. 2-3 200-
240# barrows and gilts bvrught $16.75-17.40 and
limited volume No. 1-2 $17.00-17.75. No. 1-3
270-400# sows moved at $13.10-15.65, mainly
$13.50-15.25; 400-550# $11.60-13.75.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
markets totaled 92,000 head, a 73 percent in-
crease over the holiday shortened period last
week and 12 percent over last year. The rather
sharp expansion in spring slaughter lamb re-
ceipts coupled with lower carlot dressed lamb
prices were bearish factors influencing sizeable
price downturns on the live trade. Slaughter
lambs sold 950-$2.50 lower, mostly 500-$1.00
off. Slaughter ewes were steady to 500 lower
with feeder lambs selling steady to $1.00 lower
at most markets but were $1.00-1.50 off at So.
St. Paul and $2.00 lower at Sioux City.
Choice and Prime 80-110# spring slaughter
lambs including some shorn lambs closed at
$17.00-19.00 with an early top of $20.00 at
Chicago. Good and Choice mainly $16.00-17.50
late, Good lots $14.50-16.00. A few Utility,
Good and Choice 90-115# shorn old-crop slaughter
lambs and yearlings brought $12.00-15.00 with a
few consignments of Choice with some Prime 95-
105# lambs $15.50-16.50 at Omaha; Good and
Choice 81-107# yearlings at Fort Worth $11.00-
12.00. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes
$2.00-14.50.
Choice and Fancy 50-70# western feeder
lambs $14.00-15.50 latter price at Sioux City;
Good and Choice 45-84# native feeders $10.50-
14.50, few to $15.50 at Omaha.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area
sheep and lamb receipts at 18,400 head was in-
creased 34 percent over a week earlier but 1
percent under a year ago. Choice spring slaugh-
ter lambs were 750-$1.50 lower,off mostly $1.00;


Good lambs were $1.50-2.00 lower. Id-crcr
slaughter yearlings sold 504-$1.00 lower with
slaughter ewes selling steady.

spring slaughter lambs brought $17.00-18.00;
Good and Choice $16.00-17.50, Good $14.50-15.50.
Occasional shipments of Good and Choice 80-110#
shorn slaughter yearlings No. 1-2 and fall shorn
pelts $12.00-14.50, Utility and Good .19.00-

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Prices for steer car-
casses were unchanged from a week ago; cow beef
mainly steady to 500 higher; veal closed strong
to $2.00 up, the advances made at New York and
Washington; spring lamb largely steady to $1.00
higher. Pork loins sold steady to $2.00 higher
at Baltimore, however, the trend for bulk was
steady to $4.00 lower, major portion declined
$2.00-3.00 late in the period. Prices averaged
steady for Boston butts, spareribs and fresh
skinned hams.
Choice and Prime kosher steer forequarters
were steady; kosher veal, calf and spring lamb
steady to $1.00 up.
Volume of steer beef, veal, spring lamb and
pork was moderate to normal. In the steer beef
division buyers for chain accounts and hotels
and restaurants were less active than usual for
various cuts. Trading was moderately active.
Steer forequarters moved well at New York, par-
ticularly on the late session when a rather good
demand was noted for ribs. Small supplies of
cow beef sold readily. The veal trade was slow
as retailers were aggressive for only spot re-
quirements. Demand was good for lamb with Choice
and Prime carcasses 50-60# moving best. Urgency
was lacking for pork loins mainly at volume
levels as accumulations reached moderate pro-
portions at most centers along the Eastern Sea-
board. Outlets were fair for other pork products.

CHICAGO Price trends on steer and heifer
beef were about steady, veal unchanged, spring
lamb steady, pork loins $4.00-5.00 lower, Boston
butts and spareribs $1.00-2.00 lower.
Supplies of beef, spring lamb and fresh pork
back to about normal following the holiday week,
while on the other hand veal supplies remained
small. Beef graded largely Choice but there were
fewer carcasses over 800# than the past several
weeks. Weights 55# and down predominated in the
spring lamb division.
With primal cuts accounting for the bulk of
the beef moving from wholesale, carcass trading
was generally s9ow. Demand was fair for chucks,
rounds, and ribs in most quarters, however, only
minor price changes took place. Beef loins sold
in a slow trade and worked lower. Veal trade a
dull affair but small supplies cleared in most
houses. A moderate early demand for spring lamb
narrowed by Wednesday. Legs were the slowest of
lamb cuts; ribs and loins absorbed in most
channels. Boston butts and spareribs in fair
demand on the initial session, otherwise fresh
pork trade was slow.

$1.00 higher, cow beef strong to $1.00 higher in
California, but mostly steady in the Northwest.

$1.00-3.00 higher, otherwise steady to $2.00
lower. Bacon sold steady to $2.00 higher,

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Greasy domestic worsted wools in the Boston
market were slow. Prices on-fine wools were
very firm while medium wools were unchanged
under poor demand. With most woolen mills
closed for the annual vacations and inventories,
the movement of woolen wools and noils was slow.
Prices were a little stronger on scoured pulled
domestic wools and noble noils. Occasional
small lots of 12 months wools continued to move
in Texas, while trading was slow in the terri-
tory States as shearing was about over. Trading
was limited in the fleece wool States.
The Crop Reporting Board of the U. S.
Department of Agriculture announced the average
price received by farmers for wool on June 15,
1961 was 42.350 per grease pound. This compared
to 42.5# for May 15, 1961 and 44.4# for June 15,
1960.
Cabled reports at midweek from Australia
showed quotations unchanged with Japan and East-
ern Europe dominating. Occasional offerings of
New Zealand slipes and carpet wool types were
noted, while the Cape markets were closed and
offerings were extremely limited. The Monte-
video market showed advances on 60/64s and 60s
super skirted wools while trading was dormant in
the Buenos Aires market.
Fleece Wools: Graded 64s average to good
French combing fleece wools sold at 01.10 clean
basis.
Territory Wools: Trade in territory States
was dormant.
Texas Wools: Small accumulations of aver-
age style 12 months wools sold in Texas around
$1.20 clean basis delivered East with prices
holding firm.
Mohair A small volume of fall mohair was
contracted at 81l for adult and $l.ll for kid
hair to the warehouse. Turnover in the Boston
market was practically at a standstill with ac-
tivity limited to delivery of previous orders.
Foreign Wools Greasy Buenos Aires Novem-
ber combing wools were priced at 77-77k and
fleeces around 79-800 clean fibers present for
shipment. Sales of spot foreign wools continued
dull. Australia closed for the season July 15
and will reopen August 28 at Sydney and Mel-
bourne. Cabled reports at week' s end& follow
with combing wools converted to clean U. S. oil-
combed yields in bond.
South Africa and New Zealand Closed.


Carpet Wools Trade in carpet wools
continued slow. Greasy Buenos Aires Novem-
ber second clip wools were offered at 76-770
and March wools around 69-700 while greasy
New Zealand wools were unchanged as follows:
Fleeces at 770, "B" style second shears at
71#, "BC" at 69 # and type 702/5 crutchings
at 650 to 700 all clean fibers present for
shipment. A greasy English cross-bred carpet
wool was offered at 760 for shipment. Ap-
proximately 3,380 bales of Pakistan/India
carpet wools, including 500 bales of Afghan
wools, will be auctioned at Liverpool on
July 19.

COLD STORAGE HOLDINGS OF MEATS AND LARD, JUNE 30, 1961
The seasonal reduction in warehouse stocks of red meats was less than usual due
to a moderate contra-seasonal increase in beef and some pork items. The 24 million
pound net reduction during June compares with a decline of 43 million a year earlier
and the 5-year average decline of 58 million. July 1 stocks of beef, at 155 million
pounds, were 7 percent above July 1, 1960 holdings and 15 percent more than average.
During June, stocks increased 1 million pounds but during June last year, stocks de-
clined 3 million pounds and the average change for the month is downward by about 7
million pounds. A 24 million pound net reduction in total pork stocks brought July
1 holdings to 244 million pounds. This compares with a 36-million pound decline
during June 196u and the average reduction of 46 million. Frozen pork declined 23
million pounds to 206 million pounds and cured pork was down 1 million to 38 million
pounds. For the date, holdings of all pork were 30 percent below July 1, a year ago
and 21 percent below average.

CATTLE AND CALVES ON FEED, JULY 1, 1961

NUMBER ON FED) INCREASE 2 PERCENT A total of 5,752,000 head of cattle and calves were on feed
for market in the 26 major feeding States on July 1, 1961, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This
number was 2 percent higher than the 5,652,.J00 head on feed in these States July 1, lqJ, but down
seasonally from the 7,015,X'0 head on feed April 1 this year. The April 1 to July 1 decline in numbers
on feed was 18 percent this year compared with 15 percent during the same period last year.
NORTH CEITHAL STATES 3 PERCENT HIGHLR Cattle and calves on feed in the North Central States
July 1 at 5,897,000 head were 3 percent above the 3,767,000 head July 1 last year. Iowa, the leading
State, was unchanged from a year earlier, Illinois was 5 percent higher, but Nebraska decreased 6 per-
cent. All other States in this region, except Missouri which was down 5 percent, were unchanged or
higher compared with July 1, 1960.
WESTERN STATES DECLIIE 3 PERCENT On July 1, 1961 there were 1,574,000 head of cattle and calves
on feed in the 11 Western States compared with 1,628,000 head last July 1--a decrease of 3 percent.
Two States were higher, two were unchanged and 7 were lower compared with July 1, 196u. California,
the leading Western State, was down 3 percent and Arizona was off 11 percent compared with July 1 last
year. Colorado and Washington, both showing a 6 percent increase, were the only States in this region
higher than a year earlier.
PLACEMENTS UP 2 PERCENT MARKETINGS UP 9 PERCENT The number of cattle and calves placed on feed
daring April through June totaled 2,212,000 head compared with 2,164,000 head the same period last
year--a 2 percent increase. Shipments of stocker and feeder cattle into 8 Corn Belt States (for which
data are available) during April and May this year were up 10 percent from the same two months in 1960.
During the April through June period this year marketing of fed cattle amounted to 5,475,000
head, up 9 percent from the 3,186,u.jO head marketed during April-June 1960. Marketings were up 14 per-
cent in the Western States and 6 percent higher in the North Central States.
The number of beef steers and heifers (grading Prime, Choice and Good) sold out of first hands for
slaughter at 12 major livestock markets during April, May, and June was 4 percent above 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.
WEIGHT OF CATTLE ON FEED Of the cattle and calves on feed in the 26 States July 1, those weigh-
ing under 500 pounds accounted for 3 percent of the total this year compared with 4 percent on July 1,
196u. The 50u-699-pound group made up 20 percent of total compared with 21 percent a year earlier.
The 7u0-899-pound group accounted for 45 percent compared with 42 a year earlier. The number weighing
900-1099 pounds at 23 percent compares with 25 percent of the total last year, while those in the over
1100-pound group comprised 9 percent of the total this year and 8 percent last.
A breakdown of the July 1 number on feed in the 26 States by weight groups showed a larger number
of cattle on feed than a year earlier in the 700-899-pound and the over 1100-pound classes. All other
groups showed a decrease in the number on feed this July 1. The number weighing less than 500 pounds
July 1 totaled 175,000 head--14 percent below a year earlier; the 500-699-pound group totaled
1,119,000 head--down 5 percent; the 700-899-pound group at 2,599,000 head was up 8 percent; the 900-
1099-pound group at 1,343,000 head was oown 6 percent while the over 1100-pound group at 518,000 head
was up 15 percent.
TIME ON FEED In the 26 States, cattle and calves on feed by length of time as a percent of total
on July 1 this year and last were: Under 3 months, 37 percent both years; 3 to 6 months, 32 and 33
percent; and over 6 months, 31 and 50 percent.
The number on feed under 5 months, at 2,111,000 head, was 1 percent above last year. The 3 to 6
month group, at 1,868,000, was down 1 percent and the over 6 month group, at 1,773,000 head, was 6 per-
cent above a year earlier.
IARKETING INTENTIONS Reports from cattle feeders in the 26 States indicate they intend to market
57 percent of the July 1 inventory or 5,297,000 head during July, August, and September. If intentions
are carried out, the marketing would be 3 percent above the 3,210,000 head marketed the third quarter
of last year from the July 1 inventory. A breakdown by months of total anticipated marketing of the
July I inventory during the quarter shows 32 percent to be marketed in July, 54 percent in August and
54 percent in September. Expected marketing as published are based upon the usual relationship
between survey data and actual marketing.
