RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Livestock receipts at the 12 markets
during the holiday shortened week were irn-
creased from the previous week which included
Christmas. Supplies of cattle and hogs were
above the holiday period a year ago while
sheep and lamb marketing fell below a year
earlier. Prices on slaughter steers at Chi-
cago were steady for the week. At most other
midwest terminals fed steers sold steady to
50* lower except Choice and Prime steers
under 1150# were generally steady to 25*
higher at Missouri River markets. Barrows
and gilts sold 25#-$1.00 lower over the Corn
Belt. Slaughter lamb prices advanced 500-
$1.00.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Salable
cattle receipts at the 12 markets were 8 per-
cent greater than the previous week and 15
percent above a year ago. Trading on Choice
and Prime slaughter steers weighing 1150#
down was fairly active under a good demand.
However, trading on steers over 1150# was dull
with demand only fair. Good and Choice slaugh-
ter steers made up the bulk of the fed steer

cago prices on slaughter steers were steady

heifers closed steady to 500 lower, however,
Choice heifers were steady at some markets
and instances 25# higher. Trading on slaugh-
ter cows was active and prices advanced 50#-
$1.50. Bulls sold steady to 500 higher at
most points. Prices an vealers were steady

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


NEW YORK Non-locally dressed: Supplies
were normal except veal and calf moderate.
Trading was rather slow with best action on
Wednesday and Thursday. Demand for steer beef
centered mainly on rounds and forequarter cuts.
Demand was good for lamb late in the period.
Pork met good outlet at the outset, but demand
was only fair at the close. A good clearance
on all classes except a few small lots of
beef hindquarters were unsold.
Compared with the previous week: Prime
steer beef steady, Good and Choice 500 higher;
cow beef 50# higher; veal and calf $1.00
higher; lamb steady to mostly $1.00 higher;
pork loins steady to $2.50 lower, with most of
the decline occurring at the close; fresh
skinned hams $1.00 higher; other fresh pork
cuts $1.00 higher.
Locally dressed: Production of steer
beef, lamb and pork was normal, with output of
veal and calf sharply reduced. Outlet was
fairly broad for steer hindquarters and ribs
and hindsaddles of veal and calf, but demand
was poor for beef arm chucks. Trading on pork
loins and lamb slow late in the week. Kosher
retailers were very active for lamb, with
trading brisk in instances, while demand for
kosher beef, veal and calf was only fair.
Prices for beef cuts were little changed for
the week. Veal and calf hindsaddles sold
mostly $2.00 higher, and lamb carcapses steady
to $1.00 higher. Pork loins sold largely
steady. Prices on kosher steer forequarters
were steady to weak; lamb $5.00-6.00 higher.
Advances of $3.00-5.00 on kosher dressed veal
and calf were mainly influenced by sharp cut-
back in production.

CHICAGO Supplies of beef and fresh
pork were normal for the holiday week, receipts
of veal and lamb were moderate. Trading was
slow on most beef primal cuts. Carcass veal
and lamb trade only moderately active, however,
prices advanced under the influence of higher
replacement costs and reduced supplies. Bos-
ton butts and spareribs were in fair demand,
but outlet was poor for pork loins.

and heifer beef steady to 50# lower; cow beef
steady to 50# higher; veal steady; lamb fully
$1.00 higher; pork loins weak; Boston butts and

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


During the past two holiday.weeks,
trading in the Boston wool market was re-
stricted because of the year-end holidays
and to limited supplies. In the two weeks
approximately 14 cars of greasy wools were
sold at firm prices. There was a con-.
tinued good demand for quarter-blood fleece
wools but outlet was rather poor for fine
grades. Trading on woolen wools con-
tinued very slow, most sales being in the
pulled wool class. Scoured shorn wools
and noils were slow to move at firm prices.
Activity in the domestic primary markets
was very slow. All the Dominion markets
were closed for the year-end holiday.
Fleece Wools Graded fine staple
Ohio Delaine sold at $1.50 clean basis,
while graded 56/589 staple and good French
combing brought $1.14-1.15. Graded 50/54s
staple wool sold at $1.12 clean; medium
grade fleece lambs wool 46-490 grease
basis and was estimated to cost clean
around 88-900. Medium crutchings brought
280 and tags ranged from 14-19#, in the
grease.
Territory Wools Graded 64s choice
good French combing and staple wool sold
at $1.50 clean basis. A fair weight of
original bag bulk fine, some half-blood
with occasional 5/8s, bulk good French
and staple Wyoming wool sold in Casper
at 52.02# per grease pound delivered
Boston while a smaller quantity of bulk
fine good French combing and staple sold
at Douglas at 500 f.o.b. Light shrinking
lambs wool sold in Oregon at 45A# grease
basis.
Texas Wools During Christmas week
over 1,000,000 pounds of original bag 12
months good French combing and staple
wool sold in Texas at $1.25-1.50 clean
basis, delivered Boston. Dealers estimate
approximately 1,500,000 pounds of 12 months
wool remain unsold in Texas.
Mohair Contracting of the spring
mohair clp in Texas had subsided, but a
few sales were consummated at $1.01i for
adult and $1.51 for kid hair to the ware-
house.
Foreign Wools The Dominion markets
closed for the holidays firm. Combing
wools converted to clean U. S. oil-combed
yields and short wools to scouring yields,
in bond.
