MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers and heifers sold steady
to 75# lower at most midwest markets. However,
the majority of sales at Chicago were 50#-$1.00
lower, and high-Choice and Prime steers as
well as all grades weighing over 1350# declined
$1.00-1.50. Slaughter cows were generally
steady to 500 lower. Stocker and feeder cattle
sold steady to 500 lower, calves mostly
steady. Trends were 25-75# higher on barrows
and gilts at most terminals, with sales strong
to 25# higher at St. Paul and in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota direct selling area.
Slaughter lamb prices were uneven. Old crop
offerings declined late to close steady to 50#
lower for the week at most points. Spring
lambs were generally steady to 50# higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers and heifers continued to follow the
lower trend which began the first week of
April and steer prices for the week in review
were the lowest since April, 1957. Slaughter
steers and heifers sold steady to 75# lower at
most midwest terminals. At Chicago, slaughter
heifers along with most steers average-Choice
and below under 1550# sold 50-$1.00 lower
while high-Choice and Prime steers all weights
and most steers over 15350# were $1.00-1.50
lower. Cows were uneven but largely steady
to 50f lower, the exceptions steady to 500,
higher trends at Kansas City and Sioux City.
Bulls were steady. Vealers sold steady to
$1.00 higher at St. Louis but only steady in
St. Paul. Both the lower trend on carcass
beef and fairly liberal receipts were factors
contributing to price declines in the live
trade with the forthcoming Memorial Day holi-
day an added bearish factor at some markets.
Receipts at major terminals were little
changed from the previous week with slaughter
steers and heifers predominating at most points.
Bulk of the steer and heifer supply graded
Good to average-Choice with very few high-
Choice and Prime offered. Steers and heifers
continued to sell in virtually the same price
range on a grade for grade basis with weight
considered.
Bulk of the high-Good and Choice 1000-
1550# steers sold from $21.25-25.00 with a
few high-Choice ajd mixed Choice and Prime from
$22.75-25.25. At Chicago, Prime and mixed
Choice and Prime 1050-1400# steers brought
$25.00-25.25 with a few Prime 1225-1550# at
$25.50-26.00 early in the period. Good steers
bulked at $20.00-22.00. A few high-Choice and
mixed Choice and Prime heifers sold from
$22.50-25.25 .while most Choice brought $21.50-
22.50 and Good $20.00-22.00. Utility and
Commercial cows sold at $15.50-17.50; Canner
and Cutter $13.50-16.50.


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Declining slaughter cattle prices continued to
cast a pall over the market for stockers and
feeders. Late May receipts of stocker and
feeder cattle and calves at terminal markets
were very moderate. At several centers limited
numbers proved a price supporting factor but
buyers generally were inclined to proceed very
cautiously and trading for the most part was on
an unevenly steady to 500 lower basis. Fleshy
steers 800# and heavier usually were under most
pressure and showed most decline. Stock calves
and 500-600# yearling stockers often were
steady to only moderately easier and at Kansas
City such offerings occasionally were as much
as 50# higher in contrast to the decidedly
bearish demand for fleshy feeders 800# up. The
current price relationship between slaughter
cattle and stockers and feeders offers less
encouragement for profitable feeding of cattle
than at this time a year ago and, naturally,
represents the dominant factor prompting a poor
demand for feedlot replacements. For example,
during the week ended May 18th, the average
price at 10 markets of all stocker and feeder
steers 500# and heavier was $22.41 or $2.09
lower than a year ago. However, .at Chicago
that week the average price of all Choice fed
steers at $25.58 was $5.97 under a year ago.
Bulk Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder
steers sold from $20.00-25.00. Several loads
Choice 800# brought $25.50-24.00 but on steers
over 950# buyers often were reluctant to go
above $21.50. Good and Choice yearling stock
steers ranged $22.00-27.50 but not many exceed-
ed $26.50. Here, too, weight was an important
price determining factor. Choice 558# realized
$27.50 while Choice 675# sold at $25.50. Good
and Choice yearling heifers brought $19.50-
23.75, few Choice $24.00-24.50. Good and
Choice steer calves brought $24.50-50.50, same
grades heifer calves largely $25.00-27.00, few
$27.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Marketings of
hogs at the 12 terminals again dropped slightly
below the previous week and were nearly 6 per-
cent under the corresponding week a year
earlier. However, receipts at Chicago were the
largest for any week for the year to date.
Consignments of mixed U. S. 1-5, 190-270#
barrows and gilts continued to comprise the
bulk of the offerings. Sows continued to move
to market at a small seasonal increase, that
class now making up nearly 20 percent of the
receipts at St. Paul. Prices reacted from the
sharply lower trend of the previous week.
Barrows and gilts were generally 25-75# higher,
except strong to 250 up at St. Paul. Sows
closed steady to 500 higher, although weights


11







over 500# were 25f lower at St. Joseph. Upturns
in the wholesale pork trade was the primary
factor for the advance in the live market. De-
mand from order buyers proved broad at most
centers and this also tended to have a stimula-
ting influence to the trade. These interests
generally preferred barrows and gilts grading
U. S. No. 1-2, and uniform consignments of U. S.
1-5, weighing 190-250#. However, shippers
often had to take butchers weighing over 230#
to fill existing orders. About 65 percent of
the run at Indianapolis and 50 percent of the
Chicago supply went to order buyers.
U. S. No. 1-2, 180-240# barrows and gilt.s
closed largely at $16.75-17.50 in the western
Corn Belt but from $17.50-18,00 at Chicago,
Indianapolis and St. Louis. Mixed U. S. 1-5,
180-250# brought $16.00-17.50, most sales
$16.50-17.00. U. S. 1-3, 270-600# sows sold
at $15.25-15.25,
Prices on feeder pigs were steady. Good
and Choice 150-170# feeders at Sioux City
brought $15.50-16.25, same grades 150-160# at
St. Paul $15.50-16.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 5 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 800 per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
May 19 to May 25 inclusive.
HOGS Receipts of butchers and sows in
the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area at
516,000 were around 5 percent more than
week ago and about 7 percent greater than
year ago. A portion of price advances made
through Wednesday was erased onlater rounds
to result in closing prices for 180-240#
barrows and gilts mainly 250 higher for the
week and heavier weights 10-250 higher. Sows
closed 25-35# higher and made up about 10 per-
cent of total receipts.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1-5 190-24Q0 barrows
and gilts sold from $15.75-16.50 with limited
volume mostly No. 1 and 2 selected 200-220#Q
lots to $16.75. U. S. No. 1-3 270-400# sows
bulked at $13.75-14.75; 400-550# $12.25-14.25.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
markets numbered 104,000 around 16 percent
less than the previous week but 6 percent over
last year. Curtailed numbers at Fort Worth
accounted for most of the reduction in the 12
market receipts. Shorn old crop slaughter
lambs comprised bulk of the midwest supply,
although expanded marketing of spring lambs
predominated at St. Joseph and many other
southern points. Prices advanced on early
sessions but subsequent downturns more than
offset the advance. Old crop slaughter lambs
were mostly steady to 50# lower, instances
$1.00 off. Exceptions to the lower trends were
steady to 250 higher prices at St. Joseph and
steady, instances 500 higher trends at Fort
Worth. Spring slaughter lambs were steady to
50# higher aside from 50#-$1.00 downturns at


411
Omaha and St. Louis, Slaughter ewes were
steady to 50f lower. Feeder lambs were steady,
instances 500 higher at Fort Worth.
Choice with a few Prime 90-112# shorn old
crop slaughter lambs No. 1,2 and fall shorn
pelts sold from $14.00-15.50, few shipments
90-105# to $16.00 and a deck 90# $17.00 at
Chicago. Choice 115-120# $15.00-14.50, 120-
141# $9.00-15.25. Good and Choice 80-115#
$12.00-15.00. Few shipments Good and Choice
80-125# wooled slaughter lambs $15.00-15.00,
few $16.00. Choice and Prime 80-105# spring
lambs $18.00-19.00, few $20.00; 105-115#
$16.00-18.00. Good and Choice $16.00-18.00,
Utility and Good $14.00-17.00. Cull to Choice
shorn slaughter ewes $1.50-6.00, mostly $2.50-
5.50.
At Fort Worth, Medium and Good 77-91#
shorn feeders with No. 1-2 pelts $8.00-9.50;
Good and Choice 70-78# spring feeders $12.00-
12.50. At Omaha, Good and Choice 64-79# spring
feeders $14.50-16.00.
Receipts in the Interior Iowa-Southern
Minnesota area at 25,500 were 9 percent less
than the previous week but 16 percent over
last year. The fairly broad numbers marketed
combined with lower dressed lamb prices as
bearish factors influenced price downturns
on the live trade. Old crop slaughter lambs
were largely weak to 50f lower. Spring slaugh-
ter lambs were unevenly steady to weak,
instances 500 lower. Slaughter ewes were
steady. Shorn old crop slaughter lambs made up
around 75 percent of the week's supply.
On Friday, Choice 90-105# shorn old crop
slaughter lambs with No. 1 and 2 pelts brought
$14.00-15.00 delivered to packing plants;
Choice 105-115# $13.00-14.50, 115-120# $12.50-
15.50; Good and Choice 90-110# $12.50-14.50.
Limited numbers of Choice 90-11Q# wooled lambs
brought $14.50-16.00, 110-12Q0 $15.00-15.00;
Good and Choice 90-110# 415.00-15.00. Choice
and Prime 80-95# spring slaughter lambs $17.50-
18.50; Good and Choice 80-100# $16.50-18.00.
Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes sold at
$2.00-4.50 few to $5.00.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer carcass prices were
weak to $2.00 lower with declines of $1.00 re-
corded in most instances; cow beef mainly steady
to 500 higher; veal steady to weak at New York
and Philadelphia and weak to $3.00 lower at
Baltimore, while at Washington the trend was
steady to $2.00 higher. Quotations for calf
carcasses were unchanged. Old crop lamb sold
steady to $2.00 lower, except at New York prices
were steady to $1.00 higher. Spring lamb was
largely steady to $1.00 lower, the downturns
recorded late at New York; pork loins steady to
$2.00 higher at most points; Boston butts steady;
spareribs generally steady to $1.00 higher; fresh
skinned hams steady to $3.00 off, most sales
$1.00 lower.
Choice and Prime kosher steer forequarters
sold 50#-$2.50 lower, mostly $1.00-2.00 off.
Kosher lamb foresaddles were weak to $2.00 lower;
veal and calf unchanged.
Supplies of steer beef and lamb were rather
liberal and fully normal volume was generally
offered. Old crop and spring lamb was well
represented in various markets. Pre-holiday
trade for steer beef was moderately active with
demand fair, particularly on Wednesday and
thereafter as outlet broadened for steer beef due
mainly to lower prices at retail levels. Demand
was rather poor for cow beef. Small retailers
were aggressive for veal and calf carcasses but
volume buyers purchased very sparingly and trade
was generally slow. Sales volume for lamb was
below normal, particularly at New York and Wash-
ington. Pork loins were rather slow at most
points while other pork cuts cleared fairly well
in an active trade. Moderate volume of steer
beef and lamb went unsold at Washington and New
York and at the latter market small lots of pork
loins were carried.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold $1.00-
1.50 lower, veal and lamb unchanged, pork loins
$1.50-2.00 higher, Boston butts steady, spare-
ribs steady to $1.00 higher.
Normal supplies were on hand in the beef
and lamb divisions, Good and Choice grades most
plentiful both classes, lamb mostly weighing over
55#. Fresh pork offerings moderate while veal
continued rather small.
Price trends on beef continued lower, this
the eighth straight week in which declines have
been recorded. Rather limited carcass activity
at wholesale as bulk of beef moved in primal cuts.
At the outset it Was mainly a rib and loin trade
but by midweek all cuts had adequate outlets.
Not too much price change noted except chucks
shipping early next week at $1.50-2.00 over those
for current use. Standard and Good veal under 80#
sold in a fairly active trade, heavier weights
along with Choice and Prime slow. Lamb trade


only moderately active at best. Lamb ribs and
loins most wanted items through Wednesday,
later all cuts cleared on an even basis. Brisk
trade for spareribs each session, while narrow
early demand for pork loins and Boston butts
becoming fairly broad as the week progressed.

PACIFIC COAST Beef, calf and veal steady
to $1.00 lower except steady on cow beef, veal
and calf in San Francisco. Spring lamb steady
in California, but $2.00-2.25 lower in the
northwest. Pork again uneven, steady to $1.00
lower, except loins firm to $1.00 higher in
Los Angeles.
Supplies most meats fairly liberal, de-
mand moderate to poor, trading generally slow,
demand in the northwest for most meats poorest
of any week in quite some time. In-shipments
of beef to California from Colorado combined
with the Memorial Day holiday as major price
weakening factors.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

MIDWEST CARLOT DRESSED MEAT SUMMARY -
Compared with the previous week's close, late

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic worsted wools
in the Boston market was limited with demand
rather poor. The recent decline in the futures
market caused buyers to be more hesitant. How-
ever a good demand prevailed for medium wools at
firm prices while fine and half-blood wools were
2-53 lower. Activity in woolen wools was re-
stricted while trading on noils remained dull
at slightly easier prices. There was a modest
turnover of combing wools in the territory
States while good demand for medium fleece wools
continued while only limited interest was shown
for fine grades. Topmakers continued active in
Texas as prices showed a slightly easier tenden-
cy.
The Australian auctions offered a poor
selection of mostly "B" and "C" fault wools with
Eastern Europe and Japan the chief operators in
a firm market. In New Zealand, Continental
buyers were active in 46s-50s with Japan operat-
ing in 501 and finer qualities. The Napier mar-
ket was uneven at midweek. France was the
principal buyer in the Cape markets with prices
weak. Buenos Aires carpet wools were slow to
move with a somewhat easier tone while prices in
Montevideo declined about 2#.
Fleece Wools Original bag medium grade
fleece wools sold around $1.01-1.02, clean basis
while graded 50/54s staple fleeces sold in a
range of $1.00-1.02 and 56/58s staple and good
French combing around $1.04-1.05, clean.
Results of Pennsylvania County Pools were
as follows: Somerset 52,000# 56.82#, Blair
22,000# 56.45;, Northumberland 27,000# 56.62#,
Lawrence 98,000# 55.62#, Franklin 41,000#
56.58#, Tioga 51,0000# 56.780, Berks 40,000#
57.020. Tennessee Pools follow: Dickson 55.56#
for clear wool and Columbia 56.770 for clear
wool.
Territory Wools Graded territory 64s good
French combing and staple wool sold at $1.18-
1.20. The Yellowstone Pool of about 250,000#
sold in Montana at 43.020 while the Columbus Pool
of approximately two-thirds medium and one-third
fine wool brought 51.553 with clean prices de-
livered Boston estimated at $1.14 for fine, $1.10
for half-blood and $1.05 for quarter-blood. In
the White Sulphur Springs area approxi-
mately 150,000# of bulk fine and half-blood
brought $1.11-1.15 clean basis delivered; the
Stillwater Pool of about 450,000# bulk medium
grade sold at 51.355; the Gallatin Pool approxi-
mately 220,000# bulk medium wools 49.68#; the
Drummond Pool 60,000# medium wools at 500 while
around Whitehall about 150,000# bulk quarter-
blood 47.88#, Livingston area 17,000# bulk fine
wool 420, around Helena 50,000# bulk fine and
half 420, the Stanford area about 12,000# of
fine and half 41.50 and in the Harlowton area
approximately 33,000# of bulk fine and half-
blood wool ranged from 55-400 grease basis de-
pending on shrinkage.


Texas Wools Some topmakers were buying
actively in Texas ranging from $1.20-1.25
lean basis delivered for 12 months wool while
8 months wools were purchased in a range from
$1.08-1.15 clean basis, delivered.
Mohair Very slow with no sales con-
firmed.
Foreign Wools Trade in spot foreign
wools continued dull. Quotations from all
foreign wool centers were easier and sales
were made in the buyers' favor. Cabled re-
ports at week's end follow with combing wools
converted to clean U. S. oil-combed yields
and short wools to scouring yields, in bond.

at 81-82# clean fibers present. Greasy New
