MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


The week's volume of salable cattle at
the 12 markets was near normal despite the fact
that all major midwest terminals were closed on
Monday. Lower prices and dull trading on
dressed beef along with the liberal late week
receipts influenced lower trends. Slaughter
steers sold unevenly steady to $1.00 lower for
the week, heifers steady to 750 off. Trends
on slaughter cows were uneven but were gener-
ally steady to 500 lower. Stockers and feeders
sold steady to 50* lower. Hog and sheep mar-
ketings were substantially decreased by the
holiday. iPrice trends on hogs were mainly 25-
500 higher. Spring slaughter lambs closed steady
to 500 higher at most points while old crop
lambs were steady to 500 lower aside from the
50-750 advance at Omaha.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Salable cat-
tle receipts at the 12 markets during the holi-
day shortened week were only 8 percent below
the previous week and were slightly below the
full marketing week a year earlier. All major
midwest terminals were closed Monday which is
normally the big marketing day. However, sup-
plies later in the period were often of record
proportions which raised the week's total to
about normal. Thus with the late week receipts
liberal and demand curtailed by lower prices and
slow trading on dressed beef, slaughter cattle
prices declined. Slaughter steers sold steady
to $1.00 lower. Two non-slaughtering Jewish
holidays also played a part in reducing outlet,
particularly at Chicago where most late sales
were 504-$1.00 off. Fed heifers closed steady
to 75# lower. Cows were generally steady to 500
lower but the Utility and Commercial grades sold
as much as $1.00 lower in So. St. Joseph and
the trend was steady to 25t higher in Omaha.
Bulls were steady to 50# lower although sales
at Sioux City were $1.00-1.50 lower but strong
to 500 higher at So. St. Paul. Vealers sold
strong to $2.00 higher at So. St. Paul and St.
Louis National Stock Yards.
Three loads Prime 1250# fed steers cashed
at $32.00-32.50 at Chicago; Prime and mixed Choice
and Prime 1050-1350# $28.75-31.50; high-Choice
$27.25-29.25; average-Choice $25.75-28.25,
closed $25.75-27.25; mixed high-Good and low-
Choice late $25.50-26.00; Good $22.50-25.50. At
other midwest points high-Choice steers realized
$27.00-27.50, small volume high-Choice with
Prime end $27.50-28.00, load Prime $28.50 at
Sioux City; bulk Choice $25.50-27.00; mixed high-
Good and low-Choice $25.00-25.50; most Good $22.50-
25.00; Standard and low-Good $18.50-22.50. High-
Choice and Prime heifers brought $27.25-27.75
at Chicago with Prime 1130# $28.75. Elsewhere
high-Choice heifers, some with an end-Prime
cashed at $27.00-27.25; most Choice over the
area $25.50-27.00; Good and low-Choice $22.00-


25.50. Utility and Commercial cows bulked
at $16.00-18.00, Canners and Cutters $13.50-
16.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Shipments of stocker and feeder steers from
the 10 markets totaled 18,649 and compares
with 22,232 the previous week and 17,103 a
year ago. Majority of the stockers and feed-
ers were Medium to high-Good grades with only
a very moderate number of Choice offerings.
Moderate numbers proved somewhat of a support-
ing factor, prices at some markets being main-
tained on a mostly steady basis. However,
a weaker undertone often was discernible and
at Kansas City, So. St. Joseph and Chicago
where prices were steady to 500 lower, in-
stances $1.00 off at Kansas City. Further
declines in slaughter cattle prices were a
factor influencing a bearish country demand
but, at the same time, lessened competition
from slaughterers in some instances brought
prices down to a level which attracted feeder
buyer interest and moderate numbers of partly
fattened cattle of a kind which generally
had gone for immediate slaughter in recent
past weeks, instead were routed into feeder
channels.
Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers
sold from $22.50-26.00, relatively few over
950# exceeding $25.00. At Chicago, Choice
1075# already showing a considerable degree of
finish brought $26.00, but at Omaha a few loads
of 800-1070# including some partly fattened,
went from $22.50-24.50. Choice fleshy 752#
yearlings brought $27.25 and Choice fleshy
695# reached $27.50. Good and Choice yearling
stock steers brought $24.00-28.25 but yearlings
similar to those at $29.00-31.50 in the previ-
ous week were virtually absent during the
period under review. Medium and low-Good
stockers ranged $19.00-24.50. Good and Choice
yearling heifers sold from $21.50-26.00, Choice
525# $27.00. Good and Choice stock steer
calves brought $25.00-31.00, same grades heif-
er calves $22.50-28.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets The Monday
holiday effected a substantial decrease in
the week' s hog marketing. Receipts at the
12 markets were 14 percent below the previous
week and 11 percent below a year earlier. The
decrease in supplies along with higher dressed
pork prices influenced upturns on hogs. The
week's trend was 25-500 higher at most Corn
Belt terminals despite some decline on Friday
when receipts were fairly large. Mixed con-
signments of U. S. No. 1, 2 and 3, 200-260#
barrows and gilts predominated in supplies.
Sows comprised from 6-22 percent of the total
at the various points, or around 5 percent






427


below a year earlier.
Mixed U. S. 1-2, 190-250# barrows and
gilts closed from $16.75-18.00, mostly $17.25-
17.75. Bulk mixed No. 1-3 and No. 2-3 180-
260# $16.50-17.50, U. S. 1-3, 270-60(1 sows
sold mainly at $13.00-15.25.
Feeder pig prices were steady at Sioux
City but advanced $1.00 at So. St. Paul in a
reaction to sharp downturns the previous week.
Medium and Good 130-160# feeder pigs sold at
both markets from $15.50-16.00, a few Good
and Choice reaching t16.25 at Sioux City.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Weather and soil conditions were favor-
able for spring field work during the forepart,
of the week and the marketward movement of
hogs waa curtailed. Small suinlies carried
over the week-end and holiday along with smaller
receipts created a supply shortage durinfr this
period. Consequently, prices moved Pe-neraly
upward to reach the highest general levels
since January 1959. A little of the early up-
turn was lost on Friday as an expansion in mar-
keting on Thursday followed rainfall in several
parts of the area. Closing prices compared
with the preceding Friday were 25-550 higher
on butchers, mostly 35-500 higher, while sows
were 25-40 biigher. There was a slight increase
in the proportion of butchers over 270# while
the volume of U. S. No. 1 and 2 grades was
smaller than in recent weeks. Sows made up
about 10 percent of the supplies. U. S. No.
1-5, 190-240# butchers sold late from $16.05-
16.75 with a limited volume of No. 1 and 2
at $16.75-17.10. Mixed No. 1-3 270-4X31C sows
brought $13.65-14.90; 400-550# $12.15-14.25.

SHEEP AND IAMBS The four-day suorly of
sheep and lambs at the 12 markets was around
17 percent less than the previous week, but
5 percent more than the corresponding week last
year. Lower wholesale dressed lamb prices had
a bearish influence upon the live market, but
on the other hand reduced supplies influenced
strengthening of prices at a few markets.
Spring slaughter )lajbs were steady to 500
higher at most points, however, sales were 50#
lower at St. Louis and 50-75# off at Sioux
Falls. Shorn old crop slaughter lambs sold
steady to 500 lower except 50-750 higher at
Omaha. Shorn slaughter ewes were mainly steady.
Choice and Prine 82-100, spring slah-chter
lambs sold during the week at $22.00-24.00
with a few loads and lots reachinrF .2.50 at
Indianapolis. Good and Choice spring lambs

21.50; Good and Choice 86-U11 $18.rc0-2'.50.
Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes bulked
from $3.00-6.00.
Feeder lambs sold mostly steady except
at Fort Worth where sales were $1.00-2.00 low-
er. Medium to Choice 50-75# spring feeders
$17.50-21.50; Medium and Good at Fort h., ti


I2 00-15.00. In the Interior Iowa-Southern
Minnesota areas the supply was around 5 percent
less than the previous week, but around 5
percent more than a year aro. Around 75-80
percent of receipts were old crop shorn lambs.
Closinp :a'-ihter lamb prices were weak to 50f

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Supplies of rail
stocks were generally ample at all market cen-
ters despite the fact that slaughter operations
were suspended Memorial Day and production
was curtailed Wednesday and Thursday, when
Jewish Holidays were observed. Available sup-
plies of beef, pork, lamb, veal and calf were
moderate to near normal. However, at New
York on the closing session, pork supplies
were on the small side. Pork held the spot-
light, particularly loins and spareribs with
trading fairly active, and prices closed high-
er. Complete clearances of pork were made in
most instances. Demand was rather poor for
steer beef. Steer hindquarters and arm
chucks sold fairly active on early sessions
at New York and Philadelphia, however, as the
week progressed demand narrowed. Steer hind-
quarters, ribs and chucks comprised bulk of
small to moderate carryover at most markets.
Movement of cow beef was mostly slow, with best
outlet at New York. Trading was generally slow
on old crop and spring lamb, with the latter
largely offered. Small volume of lamb unsold
late at Washington and Philadelphia. Despite
poor outlet for lamb at New York, clearances
were generally complete, due to reduced re-
ceipts. The trade encountered for veal was
mostly slow, however, fairly active for fore-
saddles at New York and good demand prevailed
at Washington where clearances were complete.
Compared with previous week: Steer beef
mainly 504 lower, instances $1.00 off at Phila-
delphia and Washington; cow beef steady to
504 off; old crop and spring lamb unchanged
at Philadelphia and Washington, however, steady

volume of beef, lamb and fresh pork fully ade-
quate for trade requirements. Most steer and
heifer beef .radpd Good to average-Choice.
r-'r- -rinr lamb was available than recently,
but old crop lamb still predominated. Pork
loins for the most part averaged 12-164. De-
mand vas narrow for carcass beef and most primal
cuts and this influenced lower prices despite
reduced rm lles due to suspended slaurhteringr
activities on ?' mng,1. Choice and Prime veal
sold lower in a dull trade, while Utility to
Good was in fair demand and sold higher. Lamb
trade -enerally was slow, however, most inter-
est corpetpd for loins and ribs while stews

ly active; Boston butts and spareribs moderate-

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trade in the Boston wool market con-
tinued rather quiet. Demand was good for
graded quarter-blood fleece wools but poor
for fine wools. Prices on medium wools
held steady. Woolen wools and noils were
slow to move with prices on noils slightly
easier. Additional sealed bid sales were
held in the fleece wool States while a
few pools were sold in the territory areas.
Sales were limited in Texas.
Cabled reports from Australia at mid-
week showed prices firm with Japan buying
heavily and England supporting. The New
Zealand sales closed very firm with good
competition. At the Cape sales, short
wools held firm with very little combing
wools offered, as England and France were
the principal buyers with support from West
GermaWy and the United States. Buenos
Aires carpet wools were slightly higher
with United States buyers operating. There
was very little interest in Montevideo as
prices held unchanged.
Fleece Wools Graded 56/588 staple
and good French combing fleece wool sold
around $1.08 while graded 50/56s staple
fleeces brought $1.04-1.05 clean. Pennsyl-
vania pools of medium grade wools sold as
follows: Mercer County 44,000 pounds
57.590; Venango County 16,000 pounds 57.08#;
Indiana County 61,000 pounds 58.180, all
grease basis f.o.b.
Country buyers were paying 48-50# for
medium fleeces to the grower in Ohio and
Pennsylvania, while buyers were paying 400
for fine wool. Grease prices to the growers
in Kentucky ranged from 48-53# but mostly
500 for clear white wool.
Territory Wools Trade in spot terri-
tory wools was slow, while in the far West
graded 64s average to good French combing
sold at $1.10j 60/62s average to good.
French combing at $1.05,graded 50/56s
staple and good French combing territory
wool sold at $1.02, clean basis, de-
livered Eoston. Bulk fine Navajo wools
sold recently in New Mexico around 50-324
to the growers with estimated clean costs
ranging from $1.00-1.05, delivered East.
The Yellowstone pool of mixed wools brought
50.653, grease basis, in Montana. The
Park County pool sold at 48.190; the
Broadwater pool mostly half and fine at
46,68#. Bulk 1/2 and 5/8s Wyoming wools
sold at 400 while heavy shrinking fine and
1/2 blood brought 30f, grease basis f.o.b.
e,:as Wools Range sales in Texas
were mn. at abcut. last week's price level.
Mohair Tradinr on mohair was slow.
