MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW
and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price trends on slaughter steers weighing
1200# and below and all weights of heifers
were 25#-$1.00 higher at most midwest terminals.
Slaughter steers above 1200# were steady to 500
higher except steers 1250# and up steady to 50#
lower at Chicago and those above 1150# steady
to 250 lower at St. Paul. Slaughter cows sold
500-$1.00 lower at most points and closed
$2.00-2.50 off at St. Paul. Stockers and
feeders were steady to 500 higher aside from
the weak to $1.00 lower trend at St. Paul.
Barrows and Gilts were generally 500-$1.00
higher as dressed pork advanced. Spring slaugh-
ter lambs closed steady to 500 lower at most
points and were $1.00 off at Fort Worth.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers 1200# down and heifers sold 250-$1.00
higher at midwest terminals in the sharpest
price advance for a like period in several
months. Steers over 1200# shared in the ad-
vance at most points with steady to 50 higher
prices but Chicago recorded a steady to 500
lower trend 'on weights over 1250# and at St.
Paul prices were steady to 250 lower on those
over 1150#. Increased marketing of slaughter
cows from western drought areas and the
southern states together with an influx of
Canadian cow beef prompted sharp declines in
the live and carcass trades. Slaughter cows
sold 500-$1.50 lower.- Bulls were steady to 500
lower. Vealers were steady at St. Louis but
steady to $1.00 lower in St. Paul. Receipts
at the 12 terminals were only slightly in-
creased over the previous week with Good and
Choice slaughter steers and heifers predomi-
nating. An increased percentage Good and
Choice steers 1200# and heavier influenced a
comparatively slow trade on such cattle.
Bulk of the Choice 850-1200# steers sold
from $21.75-25.50 while 1200-1500# weights went
from $20.25-22.50 with mixed high-Choice and
Prime 1525# at $21.00 in Chicago. Most Prime
and mixed Choice and Prime 1050-1450# steers
brought $22.00-24.50 in Chicago where a few
Prime 1275-1325d brought $25.00-25.50. Good
steers bulked at $20.00-22.25. A few high-
Choice and mixed Choice and Prime heifers
brought $25.00-25.50 while Choice sold at
$21.50-25.00 and Good $20.00-22.00. Utility
and Commercial cows brought $14.50-16.50; Can-
ner and Cutter $12.50-16.00.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Receipts at midwest terminal markets continued
relatively small. Medium and Good cattle made
up the largest percentage of supplies with the
Choice grade relatively scarce. Stock calves
were in very moderate supply with loadlots of
Choice scarce. Wheat harvesting through much
of the midwest limited attendance of country


buyers and trading was rather slow at some
markets. However, demand was good and prices at
most markets moved steady to 500 higher although
at St. Paul declines of 500-31.00 were recorded
on feeder steers and prices were weak to 500
lower on yearling stockers. Higher prices for
slaughter cattle along with increased compe-
tition from slaughter buyers for fleshy two-way
cattle influenced the upturns on stockers and
feeders.
Good and Choice 550-700#, yearling stock
steers sold from $22.00-26.00. Few loads Choice
550-600# cashed at $26.50-28.00 and a load 520J
Choice with a few Fancy reached 428.50. Medium
and low-Good ranged from $19.00-23.50. Good and
Choice 800-1050# feeder steers sold from j20.00-
24.00, including several loads partly fattened
steers from $22.00-23.00.At Sioux City a load of
Choice 805d brought $25.00. Good and Choice
stocker and feeder heifers cashed from 321.00-
24.00. At Denver couple loads 815-850# heifers
grading high-Good and low-Choice for slaughter
sold for further feeding at 022.00-22.25. A
few Choice and Fancy stock steer calves sold
from $29.50-50.00. Good and Choice steer calves
moved from $24.00-29.00, including Good 497# at
$26.25. Good and Choice heifer calves $22.00-
27.00. At St. Paul Medium and Good stock cows
$14.50-16.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog receipts at
the 12 terminals at 286,000 head reflected an
increase of 12 percent over the previous week
but were about the same as the corresponding
period a year ago. There was a noticeable drop
in the percentage of butchers over 250#; from
recent weeks, however, the bulk of the offerings
was again comprised of mixed No. 1-3 190-270,
barrows and gilts. The supply of uniform U. S.
No. 1-2, 190-220, lots proved somewhat more
plentiful but still limited. The average weight
of the barrows and gilts at the 8 markets was
230d compared with 234,I the previous week and
2291 a year earlier. Sows continued to be
marketed in liberal volume making up 25 to 30
percent at most of the western Cornbelt centers.
Prices advanced sharply for the second consecu-
tive week with the upturn pushing price levels
to the highest point in more than three months.
A sharply higher wholesale trade proved to be
the major factor contributing to the upswing
although rather moderate receipts at the start
of the week also were a supporting factor. A
feature of the week's trade was the broad de-
mand displayed by order buyers. Those interests
took 60 percent of the supply at Chicago and
25-50 Percent of the receipts at several of the
other markets. Barrows and gilts closed 250-
$1.25 higher, largely 50041.00 up for the
period. Sows were strong to 750 higher.
At the close of the week U. S. 1-2,









180-240d barrows and gilts bulked at 418.25-
18.75 with a range of $18.00-19.00, the latter
price paid at Chicago and the highest there
since February. Mixed U. S. 1-5, and 2-3, 180-
250, sold at Q17.75-18.75, most sales ,17.75-
18.50. U. S. 1-3, 270-600,/ sows brought $15.00-
15.50 for the most part with a limited number
of U. S. 1-2, 250-500,j $15.75-16.00.
Prices on feeder pigs closed steady at
Sioux City and steady to strong at St. Paul.
Good and Choice 130-160,/ feeders at St. Paul
sold at ?16.00-16.50, Good $15.50-16.00. Good
and Choice, mostly Good, 150-1701 at Sioux City
brought 315.50-16.00, few $16.25.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area at 290,000 head were
5% above the previous week and about 11 per-
cent more than a year ago. Compared with the
previous Friday, closing sales were mainly 750
higher on 180-220, barrows and gilts with
heavier weights 754-'1.00 up. Sows sold 50-750
higher with most advance on weights under 360d.
On Friday, mixed U. S. 1-3 and 2-3 200-
240d barrows and gilts brought 417.00-17.75
with No. 1 and 2 lots '17.50-18.00. Most U. S.
1-5 270-400,j sows brought .1l4.00-15.00, No. 2-53
400-550# bulked at $12.25-15.75.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at 12 terminal
markets totaled 70,000 head, a slight increase
over the previous week and 19 percent over
last year. The swing to spring slaughter lambs
was virtually completed as old-crop offerings
made up 10 percent or less of the supply at
most Corn Belt terminals. Price strength for
spring slaughter lambs on early sessions was
more than erased at most markets with closing
levels steady to 500 lower, instances $1.00 off.
However, at St. Joseph sales were steady to
500 higher. Old crop slaughter lambs and year-
lings were steady to 500 lower aside from the
steady to 50 higher trend at Omaha. Slaughter
ewes were steady to 50O higher. Feeder lambs
sold steady to 500 lower.
Choice and Prime 80-110# spring slaughter
lambs sold from $18.50-20.00 on early rounds
and to $21.25 at Chicago but closing levels
at most points were $18.00-19.50. Good and
Choice $17.00-18.50, mainly Good $15.00-17.00.
Choice 90-11131 shorn old-crop slaughter lambs

brought $14.00-16.00, instances $16.50 and deck
82U lambs $17.00 at Omaha; Good and Choice
90-114# lambs and yearlings $12.00-14.00. Cull
to Choice shorn ewes $2.00-5.00, few $6.00.
Choice 55-801 spring feeder lambs $15.50-
17.00 at Omahaj Good and Choice 55-89# feeders
$11.00-15.50.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota sheep
and lamb receipts totaled 17,400 head, which
was 22 percent over the previous week and 54
percent more than a year ago. The increase in
numbers and lower dressed lamb prices influ-
enced weak to 500 lower prices on slaughter
lambs, slaughter ewes were steady. Spring


lambs comprised fully 75 percent of receipts.
On Friday, Choice and Prime 80-105;j spring
slaughter lambs delivered to packing plants sold
at $18.00-19.00, Good and Choice ;17.00-18.25,
and few Good $16.50-17.00. Limited supply

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Sales of greasy domestic conbiing wools in
the Boston market were limited to appro:i-iately
eight cars of mostly fine grades at about steady
prices. Occasional lots of both scoured and
greasy domestic pulled wools sold steady while
noils showed a slightly easier trend in a slow
trade. Most woolen mills will be closed the
first two weeks in July for the annual vacation
and inventory period while many combing and
weaving plants will continue operations.
Range sales were limited to Montana and
Wyoming in the territory States while a modest
weight of twelve and eight months wool was sold
in Texas and little was done in the fleece wool
section as practically all wool was out of the
growers' hands.
Auctions at Sydney, Australia showed quo-
tations slightly easier due to a poor selection
of combing wools. Japan was the principal buyer
with the United Kingdom and France supporting
the market. The Cape and New Zealand auctions
were closed for the season with small offerings
of slipe wools out of New Zealand. The South
American markets were dormant.
Fleece Wools Graded fine staple delaine
wool sold around $1.17 while graded 6hs French
combing fleeces brought around $1.07-1.08 and
graded good French combing and staple 60/62s
moved at $1.00-1.02 clean basis. Practically
all wool was cleaned up in most areas of the'
middle Western States.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good French
combing and staple territory wool sold at $1.18
while graded 56/58s staple and good French
brought $1.05 clean basis. There was fairly
broad inquiry for graded fine and graded 3/8s
territory wools in the Boston market.
RANGE SALES F'LL,'W: Around Casper, Wyoming
approximately 120,000# of original bag wool h0
percent fine and 60 percent half-blood sold at
3h-1/80 grease basis and was estimated to cost
clean around $1.08 delivered East while another
clip of about 60,000# bulk fine French combing
wool brought 3610 grease basis, f.o.b.
At Miles City, Montana about 22,000# of
fine and half-blood wool in original bags sold
at 380 grease basis and was estimated around
$1.03 clean basis, delivered. At Roundup, ap-
proximately 4,000# of bulk fine yearlings and
ewes wool sold at h6# grease basis, delivered
at Billings. At Melstone and Grass Range a
total of about 14,000# of fine and half-blood
wool brought 4hl f.o.b. while approximately
85,000# of bulk medium wool sold at 4h0 at
Ingomar. Approximately 92,000# of original bag
fine and half-blood wools sold in western Montana
at h5-L6f grease basis, f.o.b. and in northern
Montana 90,000# of bulk fine and half-blood sold
on a core test at $1.115 clean basis, delivered
Boston.
Texas Wools Best 12 months original bag
wools sold in Texas around $1.22-1.25 while
average to good French combing was moved in a


rane of $1.18-1.22 and a modest weight. of
8 months wool sold around $1.08-1.10 clean
basis, delivered East.
Mohair "'rvir.al bag adult mohair sold
recer.tl' at P62 to the warehouse as prices
held firm. A small quantity of kid hair
brought [1.31i f.o.b.

64/70s Cape spinners wool sold for shipment

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CAILOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef carcasses
sold mostly steady to 500 higher but at Balti-
more the trend was steady to $1.00 off; cow beef
mainly 500-$1.00 lower. Veal and calf unchanged
at New York and Philadelphia, however, $1.00-2.00
lower at other centers. Spring lamb prices were
uneven, bulk sold $1.00-2.00 higher while at
Philadelphia declines of $1.00-2.00 were recorded.
Advances of $2.00-7.00 were recorded on pork
loins, major portion $4.00-7.00 higher on small
supplies late in the week. Spareribs mostly
$2.00-5.00 up; other pork cuts steady to $2.00
higher.
Choice and Prime kosher steer forequarters
along with veal and calf sold steady; spring lamb
steady to mostly $1.00 up.
Steer beef supply was liberal and receipts
near normal while volume of other railstocks was
moderate. Small to moderate quantity of pork was
on offer and at New York most sales on late
sessions were made on locally dressed loins which
predominated. Trading was mainly moderately
active for fresh meats during the pro-holiday
period. Most retailers centered demand on steer
beef and pork, and clearance was generally com-
plete. Veal moved rather slow. In the lamb
division buyers showed preference for loins and
ribs, but demand was poor for other cuts and
particularly carcasses 30-50#. Pork moved at a
fairly brisk pace with best outlet for loins and
spareribs.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold steady
to 500 higher, veal $1.00-1.50 higher, spring
lamb steady to $1.00 lower, pork loins $7.50-9.50
higher, Boston butts $2.00-3.00 higher, spareribs
$3.00-5.00 up. Beef supply was about normal with
high-Good through Choice grades predominating.
Veal supply mostly small, spring lamb moderate,
bulk lamb carcasses 50# and down. Fresh pork
volume was small.
Wholesale carcass beef trade generally was
slow. Current demand was also rather narrow for
chucks, rounds and ribs over 30#, however, on
late sessions demand improved for chucks shipping
the following week. Good daily clearance ribs
under 30# and loins. Veal trade was slow for the
most part, however, prices moved upward under the
bullish influence of small supplies. A moderately
active lamb trade slowed by midweek. At the out-
set all cuts cleared evenly except legs, mostly
a rib and loin trade at the close. Spareribs
moved extremely well and demand was fair for pork
loins and Boston butts. Pork loins advanced daily
and currently are selling at their highest level
since October 1960.

PACIFIC COAST Steer beef sold steady to
500 higher, cow beef steady, except 500 higher


in Los Angeles. Veal and calf mostly steady.
Spring lamb steady to $1.00 lower. Fresh
pork loins $1.00-5.00 higher, spareribs $1.00-
2.00 higher, other fresh pork steady to $2.00
higher except New York shoulders weak to $1.00
lower in Los Angeles. Cured pork steady to
$2.00 higher, most upturn in San Francisco.
End of month and pro-Fourth of July holi-
day supplies of most meats were moderate. The
main exception lamb which was in abundant
supply throughout the West Coast area and
supply pork fairly liberal in southern Cali-
fornia. Demand centered on beef loins and
ribs, pork spareribs and loins. Trading for
those items active, otherwise trading rather
slow.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

MIDWEST CARLOT DRESSED MEAT SUMMARY -
Steer and heifer beef closed steady to 50f
higher with most advance on carcasses under
700#, cow beef mostly $1.50 lower, spring
lamb steady, pork loins $5.00-6.00 higher,
butts $1.50-3.00 higher, hams steady, pork
