MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Cattle receipts at 12 markets were smallest
for a non-holiday week since April. Slaughter
steers sold 25-750 higher, with slaughter heifers
steady to 500 higher. Weight continues to be a
major price determining factor. Cows sold uneven
steady to 500 higher to 500 lower, with stockers
and feeders steady to 500 higher. Barrows and
gilts 25-500, instances 75& up, sows 50-75#
higher. Spring slaughter lambs steady to $1.00
lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AVD CALVES Moderate
supplies and a 504-$1.00 higher trend in the car-
cass trade at major markets prompted the third'
consecutive week of higher, steer and heifer prices.
Slaughter steers sold mostly 25-750 higher. Heifers
were steady to 50# higher. Cows were steady to
500 higher except at St. Paul and St. Joseph
which were 500 lower. Bulls were steady to 500
lower and both St. Paul and St. Louis quoted
vealers and slaughter calves steady. Stockers
and feeders steady to 500 higher. Weight con-
tinued to be an important price determining factor
on steers. Heavyweight steers grading Prime often
sold at the same price level as light weight Good
grade steers. This caused all steers to sell
within a narrow price spread with Good to average-
Choice slaughter steers and heifers predominating
the supplies.
Most Choice 900-1250# steers $21.75-23.25
with several loads Choice and Prime 1250-1400#
$22.50-23.25. At Chicago, a load of Prime 1320#
steers $24.25 and two loads Prime 1250-1280#
$24.00. Mixed Choice and Prime steers weighing
up to 1500# sold down to $21.25 and at St. Paul,
a load of Choice 1672# $20.50. Good steers
$20.50-22.00. Several loads mixed Choice and
Prime heifers $23.00-23.25; six loads average
Choice to low-Prime 875-950# at Kansas City $23.00-
23.50. Bulk Good and Choice heifers $20.00-23.00.
Utility and Commercial cows $14.50-16.50; Canners
and Cutters $13.00-15.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Above normal seasonal pasture conditions, except
in the drought affected areas of Montana and the
Dakotas tended to reduce stocker and feeder re-
ceipts at most midwest markets. At Sioux City
receipts included a sizable number of cattle of
North Dakota and Canadian origin. Over-all quality
continued at a relatively low level but trading
was fairly active at steady to 50& higher prices.
Feedlot operators showed increased interest in
fleshy cattle suitable for an additional short
turn in feed lot but more aggressive competition
from slaughter buyers on fleshy two-way steers
resulted in only limited numbers of such kinds
being routed into feeder channels. Feeder buyer
demand centered largely on 750-850# steers with
a moderate outlet for weights up to 950# as most
buyers were reluctant to purchase steers weighing
1000# or more.


Two loads Choice 822-834# feeder steers
brought $23.25-23.35; majority Good and
Choice 800-1000# $21.00-23.00, load 1078#
$21.50; Medium and low-Good $18.50-21.50.
Good and Choice 550-750# stock steers $22.00-
25.50, one load Choice 575# $25.75; Medium
and low-Good $19.00-22.50. Good and Choice
yearling heifers brought $19.15-23.00. At
Omaha Choice fleshy 787# heifers brought
$22.00, while at Kansas City Choice 805# sold
at $20.85. Good and Choice steer calves
ranged from $23.50-29.50, most sales $28.00
down. Good and Choice heifer calves brought
$21.00-26.00.
HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at 12
markets decreased 2 percent from the previous
week and the week's total at 245,000 was the
smallest for any week since July 1955, except
for holiday-shortened weeks. Haying and har-
vesting operations were in full swing over a
large part of the midwest and this was an im-
portant factor curtailing hog marketing. At
some markets there was a seasonal increase of
barrows and gilts under 200# while butchers
above 250# were scarce at several centers.
This was reflected in the average weight of
barrows and gilts at the 8 markets, which
dropped to 222* or 3# below the previous week
and compared with 226# the corresponding week
last year. There was a shift in both the con-
sist and weight of sows at several centers.
St. Joseph reported the largest percentage of
sows since August, 1957 at 16 percent, but
St. Paul had a cutback to 28 percent from 34
percent a week ago. Sows weighing over 400#
were scarce, giving impetus for sharply higher
prices. Barrows and gilts 200# up closed
25-500 higher, instances 750 up with liditer-
weight hogs very uneven, selling steady to
$1.00 higher. Sows sold 50-75W higher with
buyers more receptive to weights above 400#.
Omaha recorded a $19.50 top, while
several of the markets reached $19.25-19.35.
Several markets reported their best prices
in a year. On Friday, U. S. No. 1-2, 190-240*
barrows and gilts brought $18.75-19.00. Most
U. S. 1-3, 190-250* $18.25-18.75, a rather
narrow spread on those weights and grades
being the vogue. Sows 270-600# at $13.25-
16.75, top $17.75.
Feeder pigs advanced 500 at St. Paul and
gained 50-754 at Sioux City. Good and Choice
130-170# feeder piga at Sioux City brought
$16.00-16.50 with Choice at $17.00. At
St. Paul, Good and Choice 130-160# cleared at
$17.00-17.50.

HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled around
254,000 head, about the same volume as a week
earlier and a year ago. Demand was generally







good and receipts at times were below trade re-
quirements despite one major plant being out of
the market on most days. Out-of-State shipping
orders were also broad, especially for hogs to
be shipped south and west. Prices reached their
highest levels of the season with barrows and
gilts 25-65,, mostly 40-600 higher, while sows
were mainly 25-500 higher. On Friday, mixed
U. S. No. 1-3 and No. 2-3 200-240# barrows and
gilts sold from $17.35-18.00 with a small volume
No. 1 and 2 grade selections $18.00-18.25.
No. 1-3, 270-400# sows brought $14.00-16.00; 400-
550#, $12.25-14.00.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Supplies of sheep and
lambs at the twelve markets totaled 66,000 head,
compared with 68,000 last week and 71,000 a year
ago. Frequent rains in the midwest tended to
curb marketing. Prices were uneven, with spring
slaughter lambs selling steady to 500 lower with
some sales $1.00 lower at Fort Worth and Chicago,
however steady to slightly higher prices were
revealed at Sioux City, Omaha, and Sioux Falls.
Shorn slaughter ewes were mostly steady to 500
lower, although Sioux City was strong to 250
higher. Most feeder lambs sold mostly steady.
Choice and Prime 80-111# spring slaughter
lambs sold at $17.00-18.50, mostly $18.00 down.
At Denver, Choice and Prime lambs 89-111# bulked
at $18.00-18.50 with a few loads and lots $18.50-
18.90. Good to mostly Choice lambs brought
$15.50-17.50; Good with a few Choice $14.00-16.00;
Utility and Good $11.00-15.50, mostly $13.00-
14.50. Good and Choice 95-114# shorn old-crop
slaughter lambs and yearlings with No. 3 to fall
shorn pelts $11.00-15.25. Cull to Choice shorn
slaughter ewes $1.50-5.50, bulk $2.50-4.00.
Choice to Fancy 50-75# spring feeder lambs
$14.00-15.00; Good and Choice 56-88# $10.00-
14.50, mostly $12.50 up. A few yearling to two-
year-old breeding ewes sold at $8.00-10.00,
solid-mouth ewes $5.00-7.00. At Sioux City Good
yearling to 3-year-old breeding ewes sold at
$13.50-15.50 per head.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area sheep
and lamb receipts numbered 9,700 compared to
12,800 the previous week and 13,900 a year ago.
Several rains during the week tended to curtail
the receipts, however, demand was only fair on
dressed lamb and on Friday spring slaughter lambs
closed mostly steady to 500 higher for the week
while other classes were largely steady.
On Friday, Choice and a few Prime spring
slaughter lambs 80-105# delivered to packing
plants brought $16.50-17.50; a few high-yielding
lambs reached $18.00 in one area; Good and Choice
80-110# $14.50-16.50, Utility and Good $12.50-
14.50. Cull to Good shorn slaughter ewes $1.50-
3.50.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Sales of greasy domestic worsted wools in
the Boston market increased to approximately 14
cars with demand principally for fine wools.
Prices were generally strong with advances of
2-40 on fine wools. Activity in woolen wools
and noils was very dull at about steady rates.
Trading in the territory States was slow
and very little wool remained unsold. Mill buy-
ers and topmakers continued to buy wool in Texas
at strong prices while only occasional lots were
sold by country buyers in the fleece wool States.
Regular auctions in the Dominion markets
were closed for the season. The first crutching
sale for the season in New Zealand was held at
Wanganui, July 27. Crutchings at Wellington
also were auctioned at this sale. There were
very limited offerings from South Africa. The
South American markets continued quiet with
limited offerings of small quantities of super
skirted wools out of Montevideo and some carpet
wools were offered from Buenos Aires.
Fleece Wools Graded fine staple delaine
wool sold at $1.25 clean basis while graded 64s
good French combing and staple wool brought
$1.20 and 56/58s baby combing fleece wool moved
in a range of .97-$1.01 and graded 50/54s good
French combing and staple brought from $1.00-
1.02 clean basis.
Territory Wools Graded 648 good French
combing and staple wool sold in a range from
$1.20-1.25 while average French combing 64s
brought from $1.12-1.14 and good French combing
and staple 60/62s moved at $1.12 clean basis.
Graded 56/58s staple and good French combing
wool sold at $1.03 clean.
RANGE SALES: Montana A light shrinking
clip amounting to about 70,000 pounds of fine,
half and three-eighths wool sold in Dillon at
43.0# grease basis. Very little wool remained
unsold in Montana.
Texas Wools Occasional sales of best 12
months wool sold in Texas in a range of $1.20-
1.25 while 8 months wool brought $1.10-1.12
clean basis delivered East.
Mohair Spring adult mohair sold at 86-1/20
to the warehouse while contracting of the fall
clip continued at 81-1/20 for adult and 41.11-1/2
for kid to the warehouse. A little mohair top,
bulk 24s grade for worsted consumption, was moved
in the Boston market at steady prices.
Foreign Wools Trade in spot foreign wools
continued about at a standstill. Spot greasy
Buenos Aires November second clip combing wools
sold around 76-1/20 while fleeces sold for ship-
ment from 76-780 clean fibers present. Cabled
reports at week's end follow with combing wools
converted to clean U. S. oil-combed yields, in
bond.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef sold mostly
steady but there was a 500 advance in Washing-
ton, and weakness permeated the New York market.
Cow beef was steady to 50# higher; veal steady
to $3.00 lower, mainly $1.00-2.00 off; calf
$2.00-3.00 lower; spring lamb steady to $2.50
lower, most sales $1.00 or more down. Pork
loins were steady to $2.00 higher, except
Baltimore $1.00-2.00 lower; spareribs steady to
$2.00 lower; other pork cuts mostly steady,
with fresh skinned hams $1.00 higher in New
York.
Kosher steer forequarters were steady;
spring lamb $2.00-3.00 lower; veal and calf
$2.00-3.00 off.
Trading was generally slow on all fresh
meats, however, the outlet for beef was better
than the other classes. For the most part.
clearance was incomplete, while hindquarters
constituted most of the carryover. Some veal
and calf were unsold at New York and Phila-
delphia. The spring lamb trade was very slow,
and there was a moderate carryover at New York,
Washington and Philadelphia. Supplies of rail-
stocks were normal and mostly in excess of
prevailing demand. Pork receipts were moderate
to normal. Demand was mostly fair for pork
cuts which cleared well at all markets except
Baltimore.

CHICAGO Beef sold steady to 500 higher,
veal $1.50-2.00 lower, spring lamb $1.00 lower,
pork loins 8-16# 50o-1.00 lower, other pork
cuts unchanged.
Steer and heifer beef and spring lamb
supplies were normal with Choice comprising
the largest percentage of beef. Lamb weighing
55-65# continued scarce. Moderate veal and
fresh pork offerings were on hand.
At the best time carcass beef trading was
only moderately active but advanced replace-
ments and fairly good movement of the various
primal cuts pushed selling prices slightly
higher. Arm and square cut beef chucks as well
as rounds moved well and prices showed a degree
of improvement. Ribs were in moderate demand,
loins slow at mostly steady rates. Veal
followed a lower trend in a slow trade with
boning type carcasses hardest to sell. Spring
lamb opened at a moderately active pace but
slowed after midweek. Most buyers preferred
primal lamb cuts and all moved fairly well
except legs. For the most part fresh pork
trade was only moderately active, but demand
inoreated for Boston butts somewhat after
Wednesday.

PACIFIC COAST Steer beef sold steady;
cow beef steady in the Northwest, but weak to
500 lower in California. Calf, veal and spring


lamb sold steady with the exception of a $1.00
decline on spring lamb in the Northwest.

SHORN WOOL PRODUCTION, 1961


WOOL CLIP DOWN 1 PERCENT Wool shorn and to be shorn in 1961 is estimated at
263,591,000 pounds (grease basis), according to the Crop Reporting Board. Wool pro-
duction at this level is 1 percent below the 266,563,000 pounds for 1960 but 11 per-
cent higher than the 1950-59 average. This year's shorn wool production is equiva-
lent to 118,616,000 pounds clean basis, compared with 119,953,000 pounds clean basis
for 1960.
The total number of sheep shorn and to be shorn in 1961, estimated at 30,956,000
head, is 1 percent below last year but 10 percent above the 10-year average. The
average weight per fleece, 8.52 pounds, compares with 8.55 pounds last year and the
1950-59 average of 8.40 pounds.

WESTERN STATES UNCHANGED In the 13 Western sheep States (11 Western States,
South Dakota and Texas) shorn wool production is estimated at 192,214,000 pounds
(grease basis) approximately the same as the 1960 clip but 14 percent above the
10-year average. Wool production was smaller in 7 of these States and larger in 6.
Sheep shorn and to be shorn in 1961 at 21,465,000 head are 1 percent up from
1960 and 12 percent higher than the average. The average fleece weight for these
States, 8.95 pounds this year, is below last year's 9.01 pounds.
Texas, the leading sheep State, expects a wool crop of 54,349,000 pounds- up 5
percent from 1960 and 19 percent above average. All of this increase is due to more
sheep shorn, since the average weight per fleece is unchanged. Shorn wool production
in Wyoming, the second leading State, is down 2 percent from 1960.

NATIVE STATES DOWN 5 PERCENT A wool clip of 71,377,000 pounds is expected this
year in the 35 native or "fleece" wool States (excludes 13 Western States). This is
down 5 percent from last year, but is 5 percent above average. The smaller production
for 1961 is the result of both a decline in weight per fleece -- 7.52 pounds this
year and 7.57 pounds last -- and a decline in sheep shorn, 4 percent fewer than last
year.
Of the native sheep States, 23 show a decline in wool production compared with
1960, 3 States are unchanged and 9 States expect a larger wool clip this year.
