MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers were generally
$1.00-1.50 higher over the Corn Belt with the
greatest upturn on steers weighing above 1200#.,
these advancing $2.00-2.50 at Chicago. Slaugh-
ter heifers sold 500-$1.50 higher, cows steady
to $1.00 up. Sharply higher dressed beef
prices, prompted by the fifth consecutive week
of moderate supplies, influenced the advance
on slaughter cattle. Stockers and feeders sold
strong to $1.00 higher. Butchers and sows, as
well as slaughter spring lambs, were generally
25-750 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers sold 750-$2.50 higher at midwestern termi-
nals in the largest one week advance of the year.
Price advances of $1.00-1.50 were recorded at
most points. Heifers were generally 500-$1.50
higher and cows sold steady to $1.00 higher.
Bulls were strong to 500 higher while vealers
were $1.00-5.00 higher at St. Louis and St.
Paul. Steers over 1200# enjoyed the greatest
price advance at most terminals as sharp dis-
counts on such cattle, which were so prevalent
during the past several months, were all but
removed. Receipts at midwest markets were
increased 7 percent but this marked the fifth
consecutive week of moderate supplies. This
factor and the resulting reduction in beef
supplies prompted the unusually sharp price
advance in slaughter cattle and a correspond-
ing situation in the dressed trade. This also
marked the fifth consecutive week of higher
prices and brought the general range of steer
prices back to the highest levels since last
spring. The average price of slaughter steers
in Chicago reached $24.66 Wednesday as compared
with $22.93 Wednesday of the previous week in
the greatest one week advance in five years.
Slaughter steers and heifers made up the bulk
of receipts at most points with the Good and
Choice grades predominating. However, the per-
centage Prime in Chicago.was increased to 12
percent and several points received an inr
creased showing high-Choice and Prime.
At Chicago, Choice and Prime steers closed
from $24.00-26.00, several loads Prime $26.25-
26.50, most Good $23.00-24.25. At other
markets some high-Choice and Prime steers sold
at $24.50-25.50 while bulk of the Choice all
weights brought $25.50-24.50 late, and Good
largely $22.00-24.00. High-Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime slaughter heifers sold at
$24.00-25.00 while bulk of the Choice brought
$23.00-24.25. Good heifers cashed at $21.00-
25.00. Utility and Commercial cows bulked at
$14.50-17.00; Canner and Cutter $13.00-15.50.

STOCK AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES A
good demand existed for moderate numbers of
stocker and feeder cattle and calves at terminal


markets,and in brisk trading, prices were
unevenly strong to $1.00 higher. This marked
the fourth consecutive week of advancing prices.
The higher trend was triggered by sharp ad-
vances on slaughter cattle. Stocker and feeder
buyers were fairly aggressive competitors on
most all weights and grades and displayed more
willingness to compete for partly fattened
1000-1100f steers suitable for an additional
short turn in the feedlot than at any time in
recent months. Even so, feedlot operators pur-
chased only a very moderate percent of the
fleshy two-way 800-1100# steers as packer buyer
competition often was too much for then.
Marketings failed to show the expansion in
numbers that often has occurred in prior years
during the forepart of August. This was a re-
flection of the continued good pasture condi-
tions that exist in some of the important graz-
ing areas of the southwest and western plains.
However, receipts again included sizeable num-
bers of Canadian origin, majority of these
being marketed at Sioux City.
Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers
brought $21.50-24.50, few loads 750-800#
$24.50-25.25. In contrast, same grades 900-
1050# usually cashed from $22.50-23.50. At
Sioux City Choice 1085# reputation steers sold
at $23.00 with 798# mates at $25.25. Good and
Choice 550-700# stock steers bulked at $23.00-
26.00, Choice 675# included at $26.00. Choice
535# sold at $26.40 but Choice under 600#
stockers continued relatively scarce. Medium
and low-Good stockers ranged $.20.00-23.50. Good
and Choice yearling heifers brought $21.00-
25.50, Choice fleshy 786Y included at t23.00.
Good and Choice steer calves sold chiefly from
$24.00-28.00 but a few 200-350# brought
$29.00-33.00. Good and Choice 350-500# heifer
calves brought $22.00-26.00, one string of
Good and Choice 275# $30.00-50.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at the
12 terminals were up 10 percent from the
previous week but 8 percent below the corre-
sponding week a year ago. Mixed No. 1-3, 190-
250# barrows and gilts made up the majority of
the supplies with several markets receiving an
increased number weighing under 200#. Butchers
over 250# were scarce. Sow receipts decreased
at some centers but still made up as much as
29 percent of the marketing at a few terminals.
Best demand continued to center on 210-240#
butchers. Order buyers again were aggressive
taking 60 percent of the apply at Indianapolis
and 40 percent at St. Joseph. A higher whole-
sale dressed pork trade had a stimulating
effect to the live market and prices reacted
from the lower trend of the previous week.
Prices showed some unevenness during the period
but compared with the previous week's close,









late sales of barrows and gilts were largely
25-75# higher. Sows found a broad demand and
closed steady to $1.00 higher, mainly 25-75#
up.
At the close U. S. No. 1-2, 200-230. bar-
rows and gilts sold up to $19.75 at Omaha.
Bulk of the U. S. 1-2, 200-240% offerings sold
at $18.75-19.00. Late sales of mixed U. S. 1-3
200-260# butchers were mainly at $18.25-18.75.
A limited number U. S. 1-2, 250-310# sows
brought $17.00-17.75, bulk U. S. 1-3, 270-600/'
$13.50-17.00.
Prices on feeder pigs advanced 500 at
St. Paul and were steady at Sioux City. Good
and Choice feeder pigs at both Sioux City and
St. Paul sold at $16.00-16.50.
HOGS Receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled around 292,000
head, an increase of 20 percent over the pre-
ceding week and 13 percent over the correspond-
ing week last year. Sows made up about 16 per-
cent of supplies. Barrows and gilts were
mainly 50-75# higher for the week while sows
advanced 25-60#. On Friday, mixed No. 1-3,
200-240# butchers sold from $17.50-18.10 with
a modest volume No. 1-2 $17.75-18.50. No. 1-3
270-400# sows brought $14.25-16.50; 400-550#/,
$12.35-14.25.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
markets totaled 75,000 head, or 4 percent
over the previous week and about the same
as a year ago. Spring slaughter lambs
accounted for the bulk of supply. At Denver
around 18 percent of the lambs were feeders.
Higher dressed lamb prices stimulated demand
on the live market and prices worked higher
despite increased marketing. Spring slaughter
lambs sold steady to $1.00 higher, mostly 25-
75# up. Slaughter ewes sold steady to 500
higher, instances $1.00 up. Feeder lambs were
largely steady, some strong to 50# higher at
Sioux City and Denver.
Choice and Prime 80-115# spring slaughter
lambs closed from $18.00-19.25, with sales to
$20.00 at Chicago. At Denver Choice to mostly
Prime lambs cashed at $19.00-20.75, short deck
Prime 107# $20.90. Good and Choice lambs sold
from $15.00-18.00, mostly $16.00-18.00. Few
Choice and Prime 80-101# shorn spring lambs
with No. 1 and 2 pelts brought $17.00-18.50.
Good and Choice 55-86# spring feeder
lambs bulked at $12.00-14.50, some Choice and
Fancy 63-75# western feeders $14.50-15.00.
The week s receipts within the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area at 11,500 head
were almost 42 percent more than the previous
week. Spring slaughter lamb prices advanced
50#-$1.00 in spite of increased numbers, other
classes were mainly steady.
Choice 80-105# spring slaughter lambs de-
livered to packing plants sold at $17.50-18.00,
few Choice and Prime high-yielding lots to
$18.50; Good and Choice 80-110# $15.00-17.00.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Major price advances were
recorded on steer beef and spring lamb with steer
carcasses $1.00-2.50 higher and lamb $1.00-5.00
up. Veal sold steady to $1.00 higher, however
at New York prices were uneven but mostly steady;
calf about steady. Pork loins sold $1.00-5.00
higher, mostly $1.00-5.00 up, fresh skinned hams
steady to $1.00 lower at New York, but steady to
$2.00 higher at other centers; Boston butts and
spareribs steady.
Kosher Choice and Prime steer forequarters
sold $2.00-5.50 higher; lamb $5.00-6.00 up; veal
and calf advanced $1.00-2.00. Trading was fairly
active with the best retailer demand far steer
beef and lamb. Clearance was complete on all
classes.
Supplies of fresh meats at New York and
Philadelphia were mainly moderate, while volume
was about normal at Washington and Baltimore.
Trading was active on steer and lamb carcasses
and cuts as retailer demand was good, particularly
at chain levels. Outlet was fair for cow beef.
In a rather active trade veal and calf cleared
well along the Eastern Seaboard. Pork sold fair-
ly active with outlet best on loins and Boston
butts late in the period.
CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef sold $2.00-
$5.00 higher; veal unchanged; spring lamb $1.00
higher; pork loins 8-16#$4.00-4.50 higher; Boston
butts 4-8# and spareribs 5# and down $1.00-1.50
lower.
Fresh meat supplies were moderate for the
week. Choice to low-Prime predominated in the
beef supply, most spring lamb weighed 55# and
down while bulk pork loins averaged 8-12#.
Carcass trading at the best time was only
moderately active. Chucks, rounds and ribs clear-
ed into most channels, and ranged from $2.00-4.00
higher. Beef loins were rather slow but followed
a slightly higher trend. Standard to Prime veal
in moderate demand. The spring lamb trade was
fairly active, hotel ribs slow, but other primal
cuts were readily absorbed. All pork cuts had a
good clearance through Wednesday, Boston butts
and spareribs some slower late. Pork loins scored
a daily gain.

PACIFIC COAST Prices on steer beef ad-
vanced 50#-$1.00, cow steady to $1.00 higher with
the advance limited to California. Veal and calf
sold mostly steady, with volume sales veal in the
Northwest $1.00 higher. Spring lamb sold steady
to $1.00 higher, but mostly steady in San Fran-
cisco. Fresh pork prices were largely steady,
some sales of loins $2.00 lower in San Francisco


and fresh hams and loins $1.00 higher in
the Northwest. Smoked pork held mostly
steady, instances $1.00 higher on bone-
less hams and sliced bacon.
Moderate supplies of beef were in
fairly broad demand and trading was mod-
erately active. Veal and calf supplies
were adequate for the current rather
limited demand. Lamb continued in ample
supply and trading was only moderately
active. Pork supplies were somewhat
short of the moderate demand.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


The movement of greasy domestic worsted
wools was slightly less than the previous week
with approximately eight cars moved. There was
generally good demand for all wools, particularly
fine grades which were rather scarce. Carpet
wool sold a bit slower as dealers met narrowed
interest by mill operators. Noils were moved in
moderate quantities at steady to strong prices
and the market for fine, medium and carpet wools
was firm to 24 higher.
Trading in the territory States continued
slow and reports from recent seal bid sale at
Albuquerque indicated rather poor demand with
around 50 percent of estimated 1,600,000 pounds
sold. At that sale bulk of long staple fine wool
brought 52-55# grease basis and some light
shrinkage fleeces from the Wagon Mound area sold
at 55-450. Indian wool sold from 25-553, bulk 280
up. Eastern buyers absorbed a major portion of
the transactions and prices were estimated on a
clean basis at around $1.10-1.25.
There was very little activity in Texas and
the fleece wool States.
The Crop Reporting Board of the United
States Department of Agriculture announced the
average price received by farmers for wool on
July 15, 1961 was 41.50 per grease pound. This
compared to 42.5# for June 15, 1961 and 42.44
for July 15, 1960.
Foreign markets remained rather inactive.
Some carpet wools sold in Buenos Aires and there
were some offerings of Pakistan, Anatolian and
Australian variety.
Fleece Wools Graded 64/70s good French
combing and staple fleece wool sold at $1.20-
$1.22, clean basis. Graded 56/58s staple and
good French combing $1.04-1.07 and 50/54s staple
fleeces brought $1.02-1.04 clean.
Territory Wools Graded 60/64s good French
combing and staple wool sold at $1.15-1.18 and
graded 56/58s staple and good French combing
brought $1.07-1.08 clean basis.
Texas Wools Mostly inactive.
Mohair Local market largely unchanged from
the previous week.
Foreign Wools Supplies of spot foreign
wools were limited and trading slow. Formal
sales of cape wools were made at prices two cents
below detailed quotations shown below. Cabled
reports at week's end follow with combing wools
converted to clean U.S. oil-combed yields, in
bond.
