MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers and heifers generally
were steady to 50# lower and at St. Paul were
50#-$1.00 lower. The declines sent prices to
a new low since early 1957. Cows were steady
to 500 lower but held mostly steady at a ma-
jority of markets. Stockers and feeders gener-
ally were steady to 500 lower. Mixed price
trends marked a week of very uneven trading at
the various hog markets. Barrows and gilts
finished steady to 50 lower for the period
at some centers and steady to 25# higher at
others. Sows were mostly steady to 250 lower.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota areas
barrows and. gilts were steady to 25f higher;
sows steady to 250 lower. Trading also was
uneven both for old and new crop slaughter
lambs but prices in this division were mainly
steady to 500 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steer and heifer prices continued to decline
and reached a new low. since early 1957.
Further downturns in wholesale dressed beef
prices and continued liberal marketing of fed
cattle were principal factors influencing a
decidedly bearish demand. Slaughter steer
receipts at seven markets, with exception of
one week in May of this year and another in
July 1960, were largest for any week in the
7 years such records have been maintained. At
the same time heifer marketing were as large
or larger than any time in three months. At
midwest terminals both slaughter steers and
heifers were steady to 500 lower. At St. Paul
steers were 50#-$1.00 lower and heifers 75#-
$1.00 off. Weight continued to be a major
price determining factor, steers over 1150#
and heifers 1000# up generally being under
more price pressure than lighterweights. Heif-
ers 100O# down continued to sell as high or
higher than same grades of steers over 1150#,
indicating the popularity of 400-600# carcasses
as compared with beef from 700# up. Cows were
mostly steady but at St. Joseph and St. Louis
were steady to 500 lower. Bulls were generally
steady to strong. At St. Paul and St. Louis
vealers sold steady to $1.00 lower.
Bulk Choice 950-1300# steers brought
$21.00-23.00, some Choice 1300-1600# $20.00-
22.00. Good steers ranged $19.50-22.00 but
over 1100# shipments at $21.25-21.75 often
carried an end of Choice. In Chicago, Prime
and mixed Choice and Prime 1050-1400# steers
sold from $22.50-25.00 with 1400-1600# from
$21.25-23.00 and a shipment Choice 1700# at
$20.25. A few high-Choice and mixed Choice and
Prime heifers brought $23.00-25.50 but majority
Choice heifers went from $21.25-22.75, Good
and mixed Good and low-Choice $20.50-22.00.
Utility and Commercial cows bulked at $15.50-
17.50, Canner and Cutter $14.50-17.00,


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Stockers and feeders continued in seasonally
moderate supply at midwest terminals. Medium
and Good grades made up a large percentage of
the supplies. Stock calves were in very limi-
ted number and loadlots of Choice calves in
particular were scarce, although all classes
were in seasonally moderate supply, a somewhat
erratic demand prevailed. This unevenness was
reflected in decided variations in price trenrs
from one market to another. At Omaha, Kansas
City and Denver prices were maintained on a
steady basis and at Sioux Falls were steady to
$1.00 higher. However, at other terminals
prices usually were weak to 50# lower and at
St. Paul were weak to $1.00 lower. Stockers of
high-Good and Choice grades generally found
more reliable outlet than did the lower grades.
At most markets prices on fleshy feeder steers
tended to reflect the lower trend for slaughter
cattle. Thus, feeder steers over 800B showed
most weakness at those markets which registered.
a decline.
Several shipments of Choice 550-600# stock
steers brought $26.50-28.00, one load Choice
519# $28.50 and. shipment Choice and Fancy
around 540# $29.00. Bulk Good and Choice 550-
750# sold from $22.00-26.00. .Medium and low-
Good stockers brought $18.75-23.50. Good and
Choice 800-1050# feeder steers sold from $20.00-
22.50, few loads Choice 750-800# $23.00-25.50.
At Omaha two loads mostly Good 804# went at
$22.40 and at St. Paul Medium 950# Holsteins
landed at $18.00. Good and Choice yearling
heifers brought $20.00-24.25. Good and Choice
steer calves ranged from $24.00-50.00, mostly
$29.00 down; same grades heifer calves $21.50-
27.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog receipts at
twelve terminal markets fell 13 percent under
the previous week and also numbered slightly
less than the same week a year ago. Mixed
grade 190-270# barrows and gilts made up bulk
of the offerings with 190-250# kinds comprising
the big end of the receipts in the Eastern sec-
tion of the Cornbelt. Another sizable volume
of 270-300# butchers arrived at terminals in
the Western part of the area. Uniform consign-
ments of U. S. No. 1-2, 190-220# continued
relatively scarce with these offerings gener-
ally finding a dependable outlet as order buy-
ers competed rather aggressively for a share of
the available supplies. Sow percentages con-
tinued to increase seasonally, that class mak-
ing up 28 percent of the receipts at St. Paul
and 8 20 perceih at the other Western Corn-
belt centers. Prices were highly uneven during
the week. Upturns were rather general at the
start of the week but by midweek lower trends
had developed. Ba~rrs and gilts finished tha

period steady to 25# lower at some markets and
steady to 250 higher at others. Exceptions
however, were St. Paul where prices closed
steady to 50 higher and Sioux City where
prices wound up 25-500 lower. Sows closed the
period largely steady to 25# lower except at
St. Louis where an upturn of 250 was recorded.
At the close of the week U. S. No. 1 and 1-
2, 180-240# barrows and gilts brought $16.75-
17.25, some No. 1 at Indianapolis up to
$17,50. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and 2-5, 180-250Y
sold at $16.00-17.00, largely $16.25-16.75.
U. S. 1-3, 270-60CW sows brought $12.25-14.75,
most sales $12.75-14.75, limited number U. S.
1-2, 250-300 $15.00-15.25.
Prices on feeder pigs held steady at Sioux
City but were strong to 500 higher at St. Paul.
Good and Choice 150-160 offerings at the
latter market brought $16.00-16.50, some
mostly Good $15.00-16.00 while Good and Choice
130-17C# at Sioux City sold from $15.00-16.00.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area at 295,000, were little
different in volume than the previous week, but
1 percent larger than a year ago. Higher
prices at the start of the week more than off-
set a weak to slightly lower trend on following
days and as a result 180-240# barrows and gilts
were steady to 254 higher for the period.
Heavier weights steady to 150 higher. Sows
made up about 14 percent of the receipts and
closed steady to 25# lower.
On Friday, mixed U. S. 1-3 and 2-3 200-
220# barrows and gilts, as well as a few 190-
240#, sold from $16.00-16.50, and few mainly
No. 1 and 2 $16.50-16.75. U. S. 1-3 270-400#
sows went from $13.25-14.75, mostly $14.35
down, 400-550# sows $11.75-13.65.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Salable receipts at 12
terminals totaled 76,000 or 23 percent fewer
than the previous week and slightly less than
a year ago. Spring slaughter lambs comprised
bulk of supply at most markets, although shorn
old crop lambs accounted for half the supply at
Fort Worth. Improved demand and price strength
featured trading at some markets with sharply
reduced numbers a principal factor stimulating
competition. However, trading was very uneven
and while slaughter lambs were mainly steady to
50# higher, instances 75# up, prices in a few
instances were weak to 50# lower and at Fort
Worth were 50#-$1.00 lower. Slaughter ewes
were uneven, mostly steady to strong; feeder
lambs generally steady.
Choice and Prime 80-105# spring slaughter
lambs sold from $17.50-19.50, bulk late sales
$18.00-19.00 and small showing $19.60-20.00.
Limited volume Choice and Prime 105-112# $17.00-
18.50, few 115-127# $16.00-16.50; Good and
Choice 75-105# $16.50-18.50 at most points but
$15.00-16.00 at Fort Worth. A few Good spring
lambs sold from $15.00-17.00. Choice 90-114#
shorn old crop slaughter lambs No. 1, 2 and
fall shorn pelts and some shipments including a


few yearlings, $14.00-15.50, Choice 90-105# No.
1 and fall shorn pelts F15.00-16.00, latter
price at Chicago; Good and Choice $15.00-14.50,
few loads mainly Good, No. 2 pelts, $11.40-
12.50. At Fort Worth Good and Choice 84-111#
old-crop lambs bulked at $10.00-11.00. Cull to
Choice shorn slaughter ewes brought $2.00-4.50,
few $5.00-6.00.
Good and Choice 50-85# spring feeder lambs
sold from $12.00-15.50, limited number Choice
45-70# feeders $15.00-16.00 and at Sioux Falls
two decks $17.00. Medium and Good 60-70# spring
feeders at Fort Worth brought $10.50-11.50.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota sheep and
lamb receipts at 14,300 head were 6 percent
smaller than the previous week and 14 percent
under a year ago. A steady to $1.00 lower
trend in the wholesale carcass trade was influ-
ential in effecting lower live prices despite
smaller receipts. Compared with Friday of the
previous week spring slaughter lambs sold
steady to 250 lower, instances 500 off; shorn
old crop lambs and slaughter ewes weak to 50#
lower.
On Friday, Choice and Prime 80-95# spring
slaughter lambs delivered to packing plants
sold from $17.50-18.50, limited volume $19.00
in one section. Good and Choice 80-100# went
from $16.50-17.50. Choice 90-105# shorn old-
crop slaughter lambs with No. 2 to fall shorn
pelts, and including some yearlings, moved at
$13.50-14.00 and few to $14.50. Good and
Choice 105-115# mixed lambs and yearlings
cleared from $12.50-14.00. Cull to Good shorn
slaughter ewes brought $1.50-3.50.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic combing wools was
dull in the Boston market with only an occasional
car moved. Prices on fine wools held about un-
changed with a slightly easier tone on medium
wools. There were a few sales of mostly scoured
shorn woolen wools and noils at about steady
prices. Buyers continued active in Texas while a
fair volume of bulk fine original bag wools was
sold in Montana while trading was limited in the
fleece wool States.
Midweek cables from Australia showed a poor
selection of free wools as most offerings con-
tained "B" and "C" fault. Japan was the princi-
pal operator as prices held about unchanged.
Carpet type wools held firm in Argentina and
trading was limited in Montevideo. The New
Zealand and Cape auctions were closed for the
season.
The Crop Reporting Board of the U. S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture announced the average price
received by farmers for wool on May 15, 1961 was
42.5# per grease pound. This compared to 41.10
for April 15, 1961 and 45.10 for May 15, 1960.
Fleece Wools Original bag medium grade
fleeces sold at 980 clean basis on a core test.
Results of the final Pennsylvania County pools of
bulk medium wools follow: Susquehanna 24,000
pounds 53.060, Sullivan 16,000 pounds 52.36,
Crawford 62,000 pounds 52.23.
Territory Wools Trading in the local market
was very slow.
RANI SALES FOLLOW: Montana The Carbon
County Pool of approximately 150,000# mixed fine,
half and three-eighths sold at 400, grease basis,
F.0.B. High Line area About 64,000# bulk fine
and half 41-44# while a car of bulk fine original
bag wool sold at an estimated clean cost of $1.10
delivered Boston. Around Great Falls 15,000#
bulk fine and half-blood ranged from 36.75# for
heavy shrinking to 400 for moderate shrinking
wools. At Lewistown 40,000#, light shrinking,
mixed fine, half and three-eighths 43.25; Deer
Lodge and Dillon 55,000# fine and half-blood 43;
Stanford, light shrinking bulk fine and half,
edge of three-eighths 46.750; Glendive 11,000#
bulk fine and half 41 and around Miles City
25,000# heavy shrinking bulk fine and half-blood
at 38 and about 180,000# of moderate shrinking
fine and half from 40-42.25, all grease basis,
F.O.B.
Texas Wools Original bag good French comb-
ing and staple length, 12 months Texas wool sold
around $1.22 while a modest weight of original
bag wools sold in Texas around $1.20-1.22 clean
basis, delivered East.
Mohair Original bag adult mohair was now
priced at 86.5 to the warehouse while a fair
weight sold recently at a low price of 81.5#.
Some kid hair alone sold at $1.315 to the ware-
house.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
steady to $2.00 lower, bulk off 504-$1.00
with full decline at New York on Good carcasses
upward of 800 #; cow beef steady to 500 higher;
veal weak to $4.00 lower and calf mostly $2.00
off; spring lamb mostly steady, but weak at
New York and Baltimore; pork loins steady to
$5.00 lower, the declines in the Washington-
Baltimore area; spareribs steady to $5.00 higher;
other pork cuts steady to $5.00 lower.
Kosher dressed steer forequarters were
$1.00 lower and kosher spring lamb foresaddles
weak to $1.00 lower with veal generally weak.
Supplies of beef, veal and lamb were
normal with beef quite liberal at New York and
Philadelphia and receipts of pork mostly moder-
ate to normal. Hot, humid weather early in the
week slightly retarded movement of meats as
retailers reported a lull in consumer outlet.
However, at mid-week fairly active trading pre-
vailed with demand generally good. Beef moved
best of the various classes, particularly loins
and hindquarters, while chain buyers absorbed
large number chucks on closing sessions. Beef
clearance was fairly complete. Cow beef was
very slow. Veal and calf met relatively poor
outlet and prices were lower in most instances
and clearance incomplete at New York. Lamb
loins and ribs outsold chucks and legs while
carcass sales were below normal. Spareribs
moved readily but other pork cuts slow and under
pressure for the most part. Pork was fairly
well sold out at close.

CHICAGO Beef mostly steady, veal fully
$1.00 lower, lamb and spring lamb steady, pork
loins $1.50-2.50 higher, Boston butts 4-8#
unchanged, spareribs 5# down $1.50-2.00 higher.
Beef, lamb and fresh pork supplies were
normal for the period, Choice steer carcasses
over 700# predominant in the beef division.
Spring lambs which have been increasing in
numbers the past several weeks represented the
bulk of the lamb supplies. Veal supply moderate,
more high Good and Choice on the market than most
recently.
Carcass beef prices went unchanged but
trading was generally slow, best action center-
ing on cuts. Outlets were broad for hindquarters
and equivalents Monday through Wednesday, fore-
quarter meat particularly chucks were hard to
sell. In the later trade chuck prices firmed
as considerable demand developed for product for
the following week. Second consecutive week of
downturns on veal with trading slow. Moderate
demand for carcass lamb. Ribs, loins and backs
moved into most channels, but legs, stews and
shoulders were slow, particularly legs weighing
over 16# per pair. Fair demand for spareribs on


on each session, pork loins and Boston butts
slow after Monday, however loins advanced.
Current level on spareribs the highest since
August 1958 and recently have sold above loins
for the first time this year.

PACIFIC COAST Steer and heifer beef
