MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers sold steady to 500 higher
with slaughter heifers uneven, generally steady
to 250 higher. Weight continues to be a major
factor in price trends on steers with weights
under 1200# experiencing the-greatest advance.
Cows sold steady to 500 higher, stockers and
feeders steady to strong, instances $1.00 higher.
Arrows and gilts and sows 25-50# higher. Spring
slaughter lambs steady to $1.00 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers sold steady to 500 higher, with slaughter
heifers selling steady to 250 higher at most
markets except Chicago which reported a steady
to 250 lower trend on Choice and Prime heifers
with declines of 500 to $1.00 on other grades.
Cows and bulls were generally steady to 500
higher. Vealers sold about steady at St. Louis
National Stockyards but $1.00-2.00 lower in St.
Paul. Comparatively moderate supplies at major
centers proved to be the dominating factor in
the price advance on steers and heifers forcing
buyers to pay higher prices in order to obtain
the numbers necessary to fill slaughter require-
ments. Weight continued to be the major price
determining factor in the slaughter steer trade.
Steers weighing under 1200# enjoyed the greatest
price advance at most markets and this factor
tended to enhance the price overlap between the
Good, Choice and Prime grades due to weight
differences. In Sioux City Choice 1450# steers
brought $20.50 while Good 900-1200# ranged from
$20.00-21.25 and Choice 1000# yearlings brought
$22.50. Receipts at the 12 markets were reduced
fully 7 percent. Slaughter steers and heifers
predominated at most points with the bulk Good
to average-Choice.
Choice 850-1200# steers sold at $21.50-23.25
while 1200-1500# went at $20.50-22.75. In Chicago
two loads of Prime 1305 and 1360# weights cashed
at $25.00 and several loads of mostly Prime
1000-1300# brought $23.75-24.00 while most Prime
and mixed Choice and Prime 1050-1500# sold at
$21.50-23.50. Good steers bulked at $20.00-
22.00. A few high-Choice and mixed Choice and
Prime slaughter heifers sold at $23.00-23.25,
while Choice bulked at $21.75-23.00 and Good
$19.75-22.00. Utility and Commercial cows moved
at $14.50-16.50; Canner and Cutter $12.50-15.50.

STOCKER AND ISEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Over-all marketing of stocker and feeder cattle
and calves at terminal markets were little
different in volume than the seasonally small to
moderate numbers marketed the previous week.
However, supplies this week were somewhat more
evenly distributed between markets, with several
Missouri River markets receiving a small expansion
in supplies. For the second consecutive week
Sioux City receipts included a moderate number of
Canadian origin. Quality as a whole remained at


the relatively low level usually in evidence
during July. Trading was fairly active at
steady to strong prices. At Sioux City prices
were largely 50# to $1.00 higher and gains of
500 were recorded at some southwestern markets.
Good and Choice 750-1000# feeder steers
brought $20.00-23.00, most sales $22.50 down.
At Sioux City few loads Choice, partly
fattened, 860-970# sold at $21.75-22.00 and at
Omaha Choice 877# at $22.25. Medium and low-
Good feeders bulked at $18.50-21.00. Good and
Choice 525-700# stock steers cashed from
$21.50-25.75, several loads 525-575# $26.00-
26.25. Medium and low-Good stockers ranged
$19.00-22.50. Good and Choice yearling
heifers brought $20.00-23.10, Choice 741# in-
cluded at $21.50. Good and Choice 300-500#
steer calves sold from $23.00-28.00, same
grade heifer calves $21.00-25.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets The advance of
750-$1.00 in prices for hogs at South St. Paul
was the largest one week's upturn of the year
and was featured by a general price improve-
ment at all of the leading terminal markets.
Reduced receipts provided the main bullish
factor, and were the smallest since July 1958.
There was a seasonal expansion in sows being
marketed, the volume running 27-34 percent
at some markets. Barrows and gilts sold
25-500 higher although extremes were from
steady to $1.00 up. Demand again favored
weights above 220# and at some points there
was decided lagging in outlet for weights
190# down. Sows were largely 25-50W higher,
although at Chicago they sold steady to 250
up and at South St. Paul strong to 250 higher.
Shippers were quite aggressive at some of the
markets absorbing 36-40 percent of receipts.
Kansas City reported a very strong order buyer
demand from the West and Southwest.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1, and 1-2 190-240*
barrows and gilts sold at $18.25-18.75. There
were sizable numbers at $18.50-18.75, latter
figure representing the extreme high. U.S.
No. 1-3, 190-260# brought $17.50-18.50. U.S.
1-3, 270-600# sows moved at $12.50-15.75, with
a sizable number U.S. 1-2 at $16.00-16.25.
average cut-out value advantage of U.S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 92# per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
July 13 to July 19, 1961, inclusive.
Feeder pig prices advanced 500 at South
St. Paul and held steady at Sioux City. Good
and Choice 130-170* feeders at Sioux City
cleared at $15.50-16.25, while same grades
130-160# at So. St. Paul sold at S16.50-17.00.

HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled 256,000, a







reduction of 7 percent from the preceding week
but an increase of 9 percent when compared with
the corresponding period a year ago. Outlet
for hogs narrowed due to one major plant being
out of the market for several days because of a
labor dispute but mprketings on most days were
within the limits of fairly good demand. Prices
gradually strengthened and were fully steady to
254t higher for both butchers and sows. On
Friday, mixed U. S. No. 1-3 and 2-3 200-240#
barrows and gilts sold from $16.75-17.60 with a
limited volume No. 1 and 2 grade at $17.50-
18.00. No. 1-3 270-400# sows brought $13.50-
15.65, bulk $13.75-15.25; 400-550#, $12.00-14.00.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at 12 markets
totaled 68,000 heid, 26 percent below the pre-
vious week but 13 percent over a year ago.
Despite the moderate reduction in numbers,
prices for slaughter lambs turned downward at
most markets with lower carcass lamb prices the
major factor influencing the live trade.
Slaughter lambs were steady to $1.00 lower aside
from slight upturns at Kansas City and St.Joseph.
Slaughter ewes were steady to 50 lower, in-
stances $1.00 off. Feeder lambs sold steady to
500 lower except at St. Paul where feeders were
504, extremes $1.00, higher.
Choice and Prime 80-112# spring slaughter
lambs sold from $16.50-18.50, few $19.00-19.20,
but bulk of late sales were $17.00-18.00, Good
and Choice $15.00-17.00, few Good and Choice
70-85# lambs $14.00-16.00, Utility and Good
$13.00-15.00. Few Good and Choice 95-112# shorn
old crop slaughter lambs and yearlings, mainly
yearlings No. 1-3 pelts, $11.50-15.00, also some
Choice at $14.00-15.00. Cull to Choice shorn
slaughter ewes brought $1.50-6.00, mainly $2.50-
4.50.
Choice and Fancy 55-80# spring feeder lambs
turned at $14.00-15.00, small lot to $16.00 at
Omaha; Good and Choice 50-84# $11.00-14.00, few
$15.00 at Omaha; Medium and Good $10.00-11.00.
Few 71# yearling ewes $10.50 at Ft. Worth, two-
year-old through solid-mouth breeding ewes
$5.00-8.00.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area sheep
and lamb receipts numbered 12,800 head, 30 per-
cent less than last week and 15 percent under a
year ago. Demand for slaughter lambs only fair
and was decidedly narrow on Utility and Good
grades. Choice and Prime spring slaughter lambs
were 500 to mostly $1.00 lower with Utility and
Good $1.00-2.00 off. Slaughter ewes were steady.
On Friday, Choice and a few Prime 80-105#
spring slaughter lambs sold from $16.50-17.00,
few high-yielding shipments $17.25-17.50; Good
and Choice 80-110# $14.50-16.50, Utility and
Good $11.00-13.50. Cull to Good shorn slaughter
ewes $1.50-3.50.

COLORADO, SOUTHERN WYOMING, WESTERN
KANSAS AND WESTERN NEBRASKA A reduced volume
of steer sales direct at Colorado feedlots
traced partly to higher asking prices and
broad local outlet for heifer beef. The
number going to the West Coast showed a slight
increase, however. Demand was broadest for
heifers scaling under 950# which sold steady
to strong, instances 250 higher, others and
steers holding mostly steady. In Colorado,
66 loads average to high-Choice li71-1300#
steers $21.50-23.00, including 6 loads 1200-






564
1250# on West Coast account at $21.50-22.50;
Choice 975# $22.85. Ninty-four loads Choice
heifers 799-1025# $22.00-23.25, mostly $22.50-

packers. Two loads Choice heifers 1025# $22.60.
Very few stocker and feeder sales were con-
firmed despite widespread inquiry, buyers and
sellers usually wide apart in their ideas of
market values. Fall contracts in instances re-
flected a strong to slightly higher price trend.
Wyoming: 110 Choice 950# two-year-old steers
$22.25, August 1 delivery. One load Good and
Choice 660# yearling heifers $21.25. Nebraska:

delivery. Four loads Good 1200# three-year-old
steers $19.00, some comparable grade two-year-
old heifers also $19.00.
Local packers continued to draw heavily
upon other trade areas, mainly Idaho, for lambs.
A few sales were made in Colorado at steady
prices, 2 loads mixed Choice and Prime 95-100#
San Luis Valley spring lambs at $18.75. Three
loads of Choice 100# old-crop shorn lambs, No.
1 and 2 pelts, brought $14.50.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold steady
to mostly 50 lower, except Philadelphia firm
to 50f higher and Prime at New York $1.00-1.50
lower; cow beef mostly steady with Philadelphia
fully 50 higher; veal fully steady at Washing-
ton and steady to $1.00 lower at other markets;
spring lamb steady to $2.00 lower, mostly $1.00-
2.00 off; pork loins were $1.00-4.00 lower,
Boston butts steady to $2.00 lower, spareribs
steady to $3.00 lower, fresh skinned hams steady
to $2.00 higher.
Kosher steer forequarters were 50 lower
while spring lamb, veal and calf closed steady
to weak.
Trading on beef was fairly active for car-
casses and cuts with virtually all outlets
participating. Clearance was good at Eastern
markets except small carry-over at Washington.
Supplies were normal, but increased volume of
Prime steer carcasses at New York exceeded de-
mand and sold at the same price as Choice in
many instances. Demand for veal and calf was
generally fair and despite moderate receipts
there was carry-over at some markets. Lamb
moved well on early sessions with chains absorb-
ing bulk but outlet narrowed after mid-period.
Small lots of spring lamb were unsold at New
York, Baltimore and Washington, and receipts at
these points plentiful. Pork loins sold mostly
lower with demand uneven at various markets.
Late demand at New York turned fairly good and
loins cleared fully steady to strong. Other
pork cuts met fairly good demand at all markets.

CHICAGO The week's trend on steer and
heifer beef was about steady, veal and spring
lamb unchanged, pork loins steady to $2.50 up,
advance 12-16# weights,Boston butts $1.50-2.00
higher, spareribs 3# down steady.
Beef and spring lamb supplies normal with
the bulk grading Choice, most spring lamb
carcasses weighed 55# and down. Veal supply
moderate, near normal fresh pork offerings at
the outset decreased to small. Pork loins 8-
12# most plentiful throughout the week, 12-16#
range rather scarce late in the period.
Trading was largely on primal cuts in the
beef division with chucks, rounds and ribs 35#
and down having adequate outlets. Heavier ribs
and particularly loins were slow, dealers fabri-
cating as many loins as possible to keep inven-
tories moving. Carcass beef trade rather
limited. Standard to Prime veal sold in a
moderately active trade, other grades slow and
declines were recorded. Only a moderate demand
for spring lamb but primal cuts moved well with
the exception of legs. Most dealers in need of
breaking type lamb. Fresh pork trade generally
was slow but supplies shortened as the week
progressed influencing higher prices.


PACIFIC COAST Steer beef sold mostly
steady, except in the Northwest where some
sales of Choice carcasses under 700# were 50#
lower and Choice 700-800# sold strong to $1.00
higher; cow beef steady; calf and veal steady
to $2.00 higher in California, mostly steady
to instances $1.00 lower in the Northwest.
Lamb was strong to $2.00 higher in California,
the advance in Los Angeles, and weak to $1.00
lower in the Northwest. Fresh pork loins sold
from $2.00-4.50 lower, other fresh cuts some-
what uneven but mostly steady. Smoked pork
sold largely steady, except for a $1.00 ad-
vance on hams in the Northwest and a $2.00
decline on bacon in Los Angeles.
Supplies of steer beef were usually ade-
quate, although Choice grade in the Los Angeles
area was below normal and 700-800# Choice car-
casses in the Northwest were short of the de-
mand. Supplies of other meats were moderate
but about adequate for a good demand.

CALF CROP, 1961


CALF CROP 1 PERCENT Hg3gER
The 1961 calf crop is expected to total 39,658,000 head, according to the
Crop Reporting Board. A calf crop this size is 1 percent more than both the 1960
calf crop and the 1950-59 average, and the largest since 1957.
The larger calf crop this year is the result of more cows and heifers on farms.
Cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1961 totaled 46,275,000 head, up
1 percent from the 45,871,000 head on January 1, 1960.
The number of calves born and expected to be born this year expressed as a
percentage of cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1 is 86 percent, the
same as both 1960 and the 10-year average. This percentage is not strictly a calvir
rate, since the January 1 inventory of cows and heifers 2 year old and older does
not include all heifers which give birth to calves during the year and includes
some cows that die or are slaughtered before calving. This percentage is calculated
to show trend in productivity over a period of time and may fluctuate from year
to year due to variation in cow slaughter and trends in breeding herd replacement.
NORTH CENTRAL STATES
A calf crop of 16,212,000 head is expected for the North Central States-- 1
percent higher than in 1960, but 3 percent below the 1950-59 average. The East
North Central States expect 5,730,000 calves, the same as last year, but the
West North Central States show a crop of 10,482,000 calves, 2 percent above 1960.
The expected 1961 calf crop for the North Central Region is 90 percent of the
cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1961, up 1 point from 1960.
SOU'ERN STATES
In the South Atlantic States the 1961 calf crop, at 2,942,000 head, is down
24,000 head or 1 percent from 1960. In the South Central States the calf crop for
the year is expected to total 10,692,000 head, 1 percent higher than last year.
The calf crop in the South Atlantic States, as a percent of cows and heifers 2
years old and older was 77 percent--the same as a year earlier. In the South
Central States, it was 82 percent,down 1 point from a year earlier.
WESTERN STATES
The 1961 calf crop in the Western States is estimated at 6,991,000 head
compared with 6,943,000 head in 1960. The 10-year average calf crop for this region
is 6,620,000 head. The number of calves born and to be born as a percent of cows
and heifers 2 years old and older January 1 is 87 percent-1 point higher than last
year.
NORTH ATLANTIC STATES
In this region the calf crop for 1961 is expected to total 2,821,000 heid,
down 3,000 head from a year earlier. The calf crop as a percent of cows 2 years
old and older was 84 percent, off 2 points from last year.

LAMB CROP, 1961


LAMB CROP I PERCENT LARGER

The 1961 lamb crop totaled 21, 532, 000 head, 1 percent larger than the
21,323,000 lambs produced in 1960 and 10 percent above the 1950-59 average,
according to the Crop Reporting Board. The 13 Western sheep States (11 Western
States, South Dakota and Texas) produced 2 percent more lambs in 1961 than in
1960 and 14 percent more than average. The lamb crop in the 35 native sheep
States (excludes the 13 Western States) is 2 percent smaller than last .year but
2 percent above average. In Texas, where approximately 15 percent of the
Nation's lambs are produced, the 1961 crop is 4 percent above 1960 and 18 per-
cent above average.

LAMBING PERCENTAGE UNCHANGED

The lamb crop percentage (number of lambs saved per 100 ewes, 1 year.old
or older on farms and ranches January 1) this year is 95, the same as a year
earlier but 2 points above the average. The Western States lambing percentage
at 91 is also unchanged from a year earlier, but the lambing percentage in the
native States at 105 is I point above last year. The Texas lambing percentage
at 79 compares with 80 in 1960 and the average of 73.

The number of breeding ewes 1 year old and older on farms and ranches on
January 1, 1961 was 1 percent above 1960, but ewe lambs under 1 year old were
11 percent below January 1, 1960.

WESTERN STATES

The 1961 lamb crop in the 13 Western States totaled 14, 248, 000 head--2 per-
cent above the 1.3, 906, 000 lambs saved in 1960 and 14 percent above average.
The number of breeding ewes 1 year old and older on farms and ranches on
January 1, 1961 was 2 percent above 1960. The number of early lambs (dropped
before March 15) in the Western States was 3 percent more than a year earlier.

NATIVE STATES

The lamb crop at 7, 284, 000 head in the 35 native sheep States is 2 percent
below 1960, but 2 percent above average. A decline in the number of breeding
ewes more than offset the increase in thelambing percentage resulting in the
smaller lamb crop. In the 35 native States the lamb crop was smaller in 20
States, unchanged in 5 States, and larger in 10 States.
