MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers and heifers
turned lower following a five-week advance.
Steers were steady to 750 lower at most Corn
Belt markets with heifers steady to 500 off.
Slaughter cows sold steady to 500 higher.
Stocker and feeder cattle and calves were
generally fully steady, instances $1.00 higher.
Barrows and gilts closed strong to 500 higher
for the week with sows steady to 25# up. Price
trends on slaughter lambs were unevenly weak
to $1.00 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers sold steady to 750 lower at most midwest
terminals reversing the higher trend prevalent
during the previous five weeks. This erased a
portion of the unusually sharp advance a week
earlier. Increased marketing of steers over
1500# prompted a 500-$1.25 price decline on
such cattle in.Chicago. Heifers were gener-
ally steady to 500 lower with some sales $1.00
lower in St. Paul and Chicago. Cow prices
were influenced by a rather sharp advance in
the dressed trade and were mostly steady to
500 higher. Bulls sold steady to 500 higher
while vealers were steady at both St. Paul and
St. Louis. The previous week's sharp price
advance prompted producers to accelerate mar-
keting thereby increasing receipts 5 percent
to the largest since early July. This factor
played the dominating bearish role in the lower
trend on steers and heifers. Lower carcass
prices at major centers also influenced trading.
Good and Choice slaughter steers and heifers
made up bulk of supplies with high-Choice and
Prime steers and heifers rather scarce at most
markets, although at Chicago the percentage
Prime reached 15 percent, the highest since
March.
At Chicago several loads of mostly Prime
1150-1550# steers brought $25.75-26.25, bulk
Choice and Prime 900-1400# $25.75-25.50. At
other points high-Choice and Prime steers
brought $24.50-25.50 while Choice 900-1500#
bulked at $25.00-24.50. Some Choice and Prime
1550-1650# steers sold from $22.50-24.00. Good
steers brought $21.75-25.50. High-Choice
add mixed Choice and Prime slaughter heifers
sold at $24.00-25.00 while Choice brought
$25.00-24.25 add Good $21.00-25.00. Utility
and Commercial cows sold at $15.00-17.50;
Canner and Cutter $15.00-15.75.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and
calves at terminal markets were somewhat in-
creased over the previous week but even so were
not overly large in volume. Although overall
quality remained at a relatively low level,
slight improvement was noted during the period
under review. Medium to low-Choice composed
the bulk of the supply and large share of the


run was made up of 550-850#. steers. Moderate
numbers of.'900-1050# steers'were also available.
Sioux City continued to receive substantial num-
bers of cattle of Canadian orAigin. Slaughter
cattle prices at most markets ended their up-
swing of the recent past weeks and this had
somewhat of a tempering effect on the stocker
and feeder trend. A relatively good demand was
evidenced for stockers and feeders and prices
for the most part were fully steady although at
some markets advances of 500 and in extremes
$1.00 were recorded.
Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers
sold from 121.50-24.50, few loads Choice 845-
911# $24.65-25.00. Medium and low-Good feeders
ranged $19.00-22.00. At Sioux City 5 loads
Choice 552-600# stock steers cashed at $26.75-
27.00. However, most Good and Choice 550-700#
stock steers moved from $25.00-26.50, 3 loads
Choice 705-764# $26.00. Medium and low-Good
stockers brought $20.00-25.50. Good and Choice
stocker and feeder heifers cashed $21.50-25.25
including 2 loads Choice thin 5819 at $25.25,
Good and Choice 787# $22.00. Good and Choice
steer calves bulked from $24.00-28.00, few
loads Choice 550-450# $29.00-31.75. Good and
Choice 550-500# heifer calves cleared $22.00-
26.50, load Choice 351# $27.00. Few Medium
and Good stock cows sold from $15.00-19.50, two
loads Good 760# $20.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets The midwest hog
trade developed moderate price upturns as
marketing at the 12 terminals fell 6 percent
below the previous week and 11 percent below
a year ago. Bulk of the supply consisted of
mixed No. 1-5, 200-250# barrows and gilts with
weights over 250# relatively scarce. Sows com-
prised 29 percent of the receipts at SLouz
City; 27 percent at Omaha and from 9 24 per-
cen+ at the other centers. Although butchers
well hng under 210# were in somewhat better de-
mand than during recent weeks, the best outlet
continued to center on 210 250# offerings.
Compared with the previous week's close,
barrows and gilts closed strong to 50# higher
while sows are strong to mostly 250 higher.
Major packers resisted the advances because of
downturns in the wholesale trade but order
buyers proved to be aggressive operators on
most sessions. The latter interests purchased
49 percent of the St. Joseph supply and took
near 55 percent of the volume at Omaha. The
price spread on butchers continued quite narrow
with a range of 25-50f taking a large percent-
age of the run at the various markets.
On Friday, U. 8. 1-2, 190-240# barrows and
gilts sold at $18.75-19.50, largely $19.00-
19.25. Mixed U. S. 1-5, 190-260# sold late
from $18.50-19.00, and up to $19.25. However,
No. 1-5, 200-250# closed at $18.00-18.25 at
Sioux Falls. No. 1-5, 270-550# sows brought









$16.50-17.75, 5350-400# $15.50-17.25, 400-550#
$14.00-15.75.
Feeder pig prices were steady at Sioux
City but advanced 500 at St. Paul. Good and
Choice 140-170ff offerings at Sioux City sold at
$15.50-16.00, same grades 150-160# at St. Paul
$16.50-17.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 5 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 953 per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
August 10 to August 16, 1961 inclusive.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled around 270,000
head, a decrease of 8 percent from the pre-
ceding week and 4 percent below a year
earlier. Barrows and gilts weighing 200-250#
made up the bulk of supplies with sows com-
prising around 14 percent of the receipts.
Prices for barrows and gilts were mainly steady
to 25# higher for the week, sows mostly 25f
higher. On Friday, mixed No. 1-5, 200-240#
butchers sold from $17.50-18.25 with a limited
volume mostly No. 1 and 2 $17.85-18.65; No.
1-5 270-400# sows brought $14.50-16.75; 400-
550f, $12.60-14.75.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
terminals totaled 89,000 compared to 75,000
the previous week and 79,000 a year ago. Spring
slaughter lambs comprised the bulk of supplies.
A slow and lower dressed lamb trade along with
increased receipts influenced lower live
prices. Spring slaughter lambs closed unevenly
steady to $1.00 lower with several markets
50#-$1.00 off. However, sales at Fort Worth
were steady to 25# higher and at Kansas City
were mostly 50#-$1.00 higher. Slaughter ewes
sold mainly steady, feeder lambs steady to
50f higher.
Most Choice and Prime 75-112# spring
slaughter lambs sold at $17.50-19.00, mostly
$17.50-18.50 on late rounds. Few high-Choice
and Prime cashed at $19.00-19.75 around mid-
week and earlier and two small lots 95-100#
reached $21.00 Thursday in Chicago. Good and
Choice lambs brought $15.00-18.00, mostly
Choice $16.00-17.50 late. Limited showing
Choice and Prime 82-94# shorn spring slaugh-
ter lambs with No. 1 to 5 pelts sold from
$17.00-18.50. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter
ewes bulked at $5.00-4.50.
Good and Choice 55-80# spring feeder lambs
brought $12.00-15.00, few Choice and Fancy
65-75# western lambs $16.00 at Omaha and Sioux
City.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area
sheep and lamb receipts at approximately 8,800
head were around 25 percent under the previous
week and about one-half the volume of a year
ago. Spring slaughter lambs closed mainly 500
lover, instances $1.00 off, shorn slaughter
ewes steady.
Choice and Prime, mostly Choice, 80-105#
spring slaughter lambs delivered to packing
plants brought $16.50-17.00, latter price rather


freely and few high-yielding lambs $17.25-17.50;
Good and Choice 414.00-16.00. Cull to Good
shorn slaughter eves $1.50-3.50.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Practically all wool met good demand this
week and sales were estimated at around twelve
to fourteen cars. Greasy domestic and worsted
types moved readily where available, but stocks
were limited from most sources. Trade on carpet
wool was slow. Movement of woolen wools was
moderate as demand was only fair. Demand by
carpet mills was poor and current inventories
appeared ample while noils moved under a fair
demand.
Prices were higher with bulk fine and.
medium wools mostly 2-64 higher over the past
two weeks. There was good demand for foreign
wools but supplies were rather limited. Reports
from sales scheduled at Dunedin, New Zealand
on Monday, August 14, showed fair interest and
the trend firm to mostly two cents higher.
Fleece Wools Graded fine delaine wool
sold around $1.24-1.25, while greasy 60/629
good French combing and staple brought $1.12
clean.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good French
combing and staple sold at $1.22. good French
combing and staple half-blood 60/62s brought
$1.16 and quarter-blood good French combing
and staple at $1.06, clean basis.
Reports of range sales were nil and there
was very little activity in Texas.
Mohair Small lots of mohair were con-
tracted at 8110 for adult fall clip and $1.ll4
for kid mohair to warehouse.
Foreign Wools Interest was generally
good for most foreign wools and a moderate to
fair amount turned at firm to two cents higher
prices. Types and descriptions of foreign
wools used in these reports follow:

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
$1.00 higher at most Eastern centers but held
steady at New York. Cow beef was .50#-$1.00
higher. Upturns of $1.00-4.00 occurred on veal,
mostly $2.00 or more higher. Generally spring
lamb sold steady to $2.00 higher, and pork loins
were steady to $3.00 up; however, -a lower trend
prevailed at New York where lamb closed $2.00-
3.00 lower and downturns of $1.00-2.00 were
posted on pork loins. Along the Eastern Seaboard
Boston butts and spareribs were largely steady
to $1.00 lower; fresh skinned hams $1.00-3.00
higher.
Prices for kosher steer forequarters were
50o to mostly $1.00 lower; lamb $1.00 to $5.00
off; veal and calf mostly $1.00-2.00 up. Kosher
meats were rather slow with demand fair for veal,
calf, steer ribs, plates and briskets.
Supplies of cow beef.were small; veal moder-
ate to near normal, but receipts at New York
were rather small late in the week; lamb moderate
to near normal; pork moderate. Demand was moder-
ate for steer carcasses and cuts, however, clear-
ance was normal. Prices for steer hindquarters
at New York were steady to $1.00 higher; ribs
$1.00-3.00 up; armchucks $2.00-35.00 lower. Out-
let for cow beef and veal was good. Trading on
lamb was moderately active with action very poor
for carcasses and legs at New York late. Pork
cleared good in an active trade with demand
broad early.

CHICAGO Beef sold steady to 500 lower,
veal $1.50-5.00 higher, spring lamb about steady,
pork loins 8-16# $2.50-3.00 lower, Boston butts
4-8# $1.00 lower, spareribs 3# down steady.
Beef, spring lamb and fresh pork offerings
were moderate, and beef supplies for the most
part were Choice to low Prime. Thale was a
slight increase in spring lamb over 55#; however,
carcasses scaling less represented the bulk.
There was a moderate supply of veal early but
small late.
Lower beef prices on the initial session
climaxed a two-week period of consistent ad-
vances. A slow carcass trade at wholesale along
with lower rates on chucks, which were slow,
proved bearish. Curtailed breakage of fore-
quarters kept rib inventories low and these
cleared readily. Beef loins were on the slow
side, rounds in fair demand through Wednesday
and slow thereafter. Veal trade was moderately
active but upturns were prompted by higher re-
placement costs late last week .and decreased
numbers. Generally demand for spring lamb was
moderate, but loins and hotel ribs slow, and
other primal cuts found adequate outlets' Freqb
pork trade was mostly slow, some spots having
fair early movement on pork loins and butts.


PACIFIC COAST Beef prices were very un-
even. Steer 'bef mnder 7WO#- and all weights of
heifw- -ef sold steady to 50 lower, but steer
carcasses over 700# were steady to 50# higher
in Los Angeles; all steer and heifer steady in
San Francisco and mostly 50 to $1.00 higher
in the Northwest. Cow beef was firm to $1.00
higher; calf and veal steady to $2.00 higher,
most advance in San Francisco; lamb steady to
$1.00 higher; pork steady to 2.00 higher.
The supply of beef was moderate except
steer carcasses over 700# were below normal.
Supplies other meats were moderate to smaller.
Fairly good demand for most meats and trading
moderately active.
