Combined hog receipts at the 12 markets
and in the Interior Iowa-So. Minn. area were
the largest since the week ended December 1,
1956, this the main factor influencing the
50-75# decline on barrows and gilts. Trading
on slaughter steers and heifers was rather
slow at midwest terminals. Choice and Prime
fed steers sold mostly steady with other
grades steady to 500 lower. Slaughter heif-
ers closed steady to 25# lower except some
950# down steady to 50* higher. Slaughter
lambs sold 25#-$1.00 lower, mostly 500 off.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Salable
cattle at 12 markets for the week numbered
234,000 head or about 50,000 more than the
previous holiday week, and 12,000 larger than
a year ago. The percentage of slaughter
steers and heifers in the overall supply
continued to increase as the volume of
stockers and feeders showed a seasonal de-
crease. The percent of Choice and Prime
slaughter steers was proportionally smaller
and with demand centered on such kinds, prieoW
were mostly steady. At some markets demand
for steers over 1150# was narrow with prices
lower. Heifers over 950# were also in poorer
demand than the lighter offerings at most of
the centers. At Chicago high-Choice and
Prime slaughter steers were steady to 50
higher while Standard to average-Choice were
steady to 50 lower. At the other terminals,
Choice slaughter steers under 1150# sold
steady to as much as 250 higher while heavier
steers were steady to 25f lower, in extremes
50# lower. For the most part, steers grad-
ing Standard to low-Choice were steady to 50#
lower. At Chicago heifers over 950# were
steady to 25# lower and lighter weights
steady to 50# higher. Heifers at the other
terminals sold steady to 25f lower, extremes
50* lower. Cows found a ready outlet at all
markets and price advances ranged from 50f-
$2.00, mostly 50#-$1.00 higher with Sioux
City and Omaha showing advances of $1.00-
2.00. Vealers sold steady to $2.00 higher.
At Chicago Prime steers 1150-1550# sold
from $28.00-28.50, high-Choice and Prime
slaughter steers $26.25-27.75, Choice 950-
1100# $26.25-27.00, 1100-1500# $24.75-26.50.
Good to average-Choice $25.75-26.50, Good
$25.00-24.25. Average to high-Choice steers
at St. Louis National Stock Yards and Indian-
apolis sold from $27.00-27.50, Choice $25.50-
26.50 Good to low-Choice $23.00-25.50. Bulk
Choice slaughter steers at the other markets
sold at $24.50-25.50 with some mostly Choice
down to $24.00, and high-Choice and high-
Choice and Prime offerings at $25.75-26.75;
Good and low-Choice $22.00-24.50. At Chi-


cago, high-Choice and Prime heifers went at
$25.50-26.25, Good and Choice $22.50-25.25.
Elsewhere, Good and Choice heifers sold at
mostly $21.00-25.00, high-Choice and Prime

32.00, Choice and Prime to $54.00.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
The peak of the fall stocker and feeder move-
ment having passed, supplies diminished season-
ally, and with less of a selection around,
buyers showed renewed interest in procuring
replacements. Trading at most points was more
active than recently, and prices were firm to
$1,00 higher, instances of $1.00-2.00 up on
stock calves and some stock cows $1.00-1.50
higher. At Kansas City best clearance in
several weeks was effected at largely 500-$1.00
higher prices.

HOGS Combined receipts at the 12 ter-
minals and direct sales within the Interior
Iowa-So, Minnesota area were the largest since
the week ending December 1, 1956. The volume
was around 25 percent greater than the holiday
shortened supply of the previous week and 14
percent larger than the corresponding week last
year. The bulk of the butcher supply was mixed
U. S. No. 1-5, 190-270# offerings and included
fewer No. 1 and 2 under 210Q while there was
a general increase of No. 2 and 5 lots weigh-
ing 240-270#. Uniform lots of butchers
under 220# met fairly good demand while out-
let was rather poor for consignments above
240. Sows comprised from 8-14 percent of

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


NEW YORK Non-locally dressed: Supply
of Prime steer beef was small, Good and Choice
normal; calf and veal moderate; cow beef, lamb
and pork normal. Demand was poor on pork
loins on early sessions, however, lower prices
on Wednesday and thereafter influenced fairly
active trading, and clearances were generally
complete. Outlet was fair for steer beef,
lamb, Good and Choice veal, pork spareribs,
Boston butts and skinned hams. Trading was
slow for cow beef, calf, along with Standard
and Good veal carcasses. Chain outlets ab-
sorbed bulk of meat supply, and were partic-
ularly aggressive for steer hindquarters,
rounds, chucks, lamb hindsaddles, legs and
pork loins on late sessions. Compared with

ly steady, instances $1.00 higher; pork loins

on steer and heifer beef. Supplies were nor-
mal in all divisions. Beef ribs and loins
found adequate outlets while demand was poor
for arm and squarecut chucks. Cow beef active
and substantially higher. Veal trading was
slow but most sales were steady. Carcass
lamb trading was moderately active, Volume
accounts aggressive for fresh pork with best
demand for loins. Compared to the previous

er; cow beef $2.00-5.00 up; veal unchanged;

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading of greasy domestic worsted
wools continued moderately active as about
7 cars sold at steady prices. The supply
of medium grade and half-blood wools was
limited and best demand was toward fine
wools. Handlers of pulled wools reported
a modest volume sold with prices 20 higher.
Noils were more active with some dealers
reporting a substantial weight bought for
import at about 20 higher prices. Scoured
shorn woolen wools were generally slow but
there was a good demand for lambs wool.
Activity in the domestic primary areas was
limited due to small supplies.
Cabled reports from Australia at mid-
week showed the Continent, Eastern Europe,
Japan and England operating under very keen
competition. There was a good selection of
topmaking and spinners Merinos, come-backs
and cross-bred wools. Prices at all markets
were steady to 21 percent higher. Quotations
from South Africa were firm with general
competition. A sale will be held at Christ-
church, New Zealand December 4. Few sales
were made at South American markets.

around $1.11, while graded 50/54s staple
