Price trends on slaughter cattle were
rather uneven at midwest markets while hogs
and sheep sold generally higher. At Chicago,
Choice and Prime slaughter steers under 1550#
closed steady to 500 higher for the week,
other steers steady to 50# lower. Elsewhere
in the midwest the general trend was steady
to 500 higher, however, at some points Stand-
ard and Good steers closed steady to 500 lower.
Barrows and gilts advanced late to close
steady to 50# higher at most terminals. How-
ever, sales were steady to weak in the In-
terior Iowa-So. Minnesota direct buying area.
Slaughter lambs sold steady to $1.25 higher,
largely 25-50# up.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Cattle
marketing decreased for the third week in a
row and excepting holiday weeks, receipts at
the 12 markets were smallest since June last
year. However, supplies were only 5 percent
less than in the previous week. Receipts
included a larger proportion of slaughter
steers and a smaller percentage of heifers
and cows. Also, the average weight of steers
increased at several markets, reaching 1180#
in Chicago or just 1# short of the heaviest
for any week in nearly a year. The further
decrease in cattle supplies was the result of
the previous week's price decline and soft
roads in many parts of the midwest. In this
connection, cattle are coming to market un-
usually muddy for this time of year, a result
of the warm, wet winter. Largely owing to
the further decrease in receipts, the re-
cent steer and heifer price decline ended on
the majority of weights and grades. Never-
theless, the trend was again uneven with
demand centering on cattle eligible to pro-
duce a carcass grading Good to Prime and
weighing 700# or less, while outlet was again
poor for steers over 1500#, particularly Stand-
ard and Good offerings. In Chicago, Choice
and Prime steers up to 1350# sold steady to
50# higher, all others steady to 500 lower.
Steer prices were steady to fully 500 higher
at most other markets except at one or two
points where Standard to average-Good offer-
ings sold steady to 500 lower. Average-Good
to Prime heifers sold strong to 50# higher,
other grades steady to 500 lower. At most
markets Canner and Cutter cows closed steady
to 50# higher but Utility to Standard sold
steady to 500 lower. However, at Omaha cow
prices were 50O-$1.00 lower, while the trend
was 50-750 higher at Oklahoma City. Bulls
sold weak to $1.00 lower; vealers barely
steady.
At Chicago, 2 loads Prime 1237# and
15309# slaughter steers cashed at $29.00; 50


loads mostly Prime 1045-1550# $28.50-28.75;
majority high-Choice and mixed Choice and
Prime 1150-1400# $26.75-28.25; Choice 1050-
1550# $25.00-27.50, 1400-1500# $24.00-25.50;
Good $22.50-25.50. Elsewhere high-Choice
and Prime 1050-1275# fed steers realized
$27.25-28.00, load 1174# $28.25 at Sioux
City; bulk Choice $24.00-26.50; Good and low-
Choice $22.00-25.00. Prime heifers brought
$27.00-27.75 over the area; bulk Choice
$24.00-26.50; most Good $21.50-24.50. Util-
ity and Commercial cows bulked at $14.00-
16.00, Canners and Cutters $12.00-15.00.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Shipments of stocker and feeder steers and
calves from the 10 markets totaled 26,355
head compared to 59,256 the previous week and
27,201 a year ago. Medium to low-Choice of-
ferings predominated in supplies with a rela-
tively large percent grading Good. Prices
on all classes were often maintained on
a steady basis. However, trading was some-
what uneven and to some extent a two-way
price trend developed. On sales that showed
a departure from steady it usually was a
case of yearling stockers and calves showing
strength, some sales as much as 500 higher.
Meanwhile, feeder steers, particularly over
900#, in some instances were 50# lower.
As has been the case on slaughter steers
in recent weeks, weight also continued to be
an important price determining factor on feed-
ers, the heavier the feeder the poorer the
demand. Muddy feedlot conditions often
proved a factor in reducing demand and cou-
pled with the knowledge of large numbers on
feed, prompted feeder buyers to proceed with
considerable caution. At the same time, with
abundant supplies of roughage and other feeds
on hand, apparently many growers are eager
to secure at least part of their spring and
summer requirements ahead of the grazing sea-
son and supplement feed until grass time
rather than wait another month and chance
added difficulties in securing desired num-
bers.
Good and Choice yearling stock steers
sold chiefly from $24.00-27.00, few loads
Choice 500-600# $27.50-29.00; Medium to low-
Good stockers $21.00-24.50. Good and Choice
800-1050# feeder steers brought $22.00-25.25
but not many over 900# exceeded $24.50. At
Chicago Medium 1109# sold at $19.75, same
grade 980# $20.75. Good and Choice yearling
heifers sold from $20.75-25.25. A few Choice
steer calves brought $531.50-52.00, majority
Good and Choice steer calves $26.00-51.00,
same grades heifer calves largely $25.00-
27.00, few to $28.50.


MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES






HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at
the 12 markets decreased 7 percent from the
previous week, but were a little above a year
ago. A large percentage of the run consisted
of uneven consignments of mixed U. S. No. 1,
2 and 5 and No. 2-3Sbarrows and gilts weigh-
ing from 190-260#, while lots of U. S. 1 and
1 and 2 offerings arrived in very limited
numbers. Sows made up between 5-10 per-
cent at the various points. Sorting at many
centers was infrequent, however, at some points
a few No. 1 and 2, 190-250# butchers were sorted
off No. 1, 2 and 5 lots. Weak to lower prices
were general during the early part of the
week, but late in the period reduced sup-
plies influenced price upturns that more than
offset the early declines. Compared with the
previous weeks close, barrows and gilts sold
steady to 500 higher over most of the area.
Sales were 50-754 higher at St. Joseph but
steady, instances 150 lower at Indianapolis;
sows steady to 75# higher, mostly steady to
50o up.
Mixed U. S. No. 1-5, 190-250# barrows
and gilts closed at $12.75-14.25, largely
$15.25-13.75. Selected lots of No. 1 and No.
1 and 2, generally averaging 190-250# and
largely sorted for both weight and grade uni-
formity brought $15.50-14.25 and up to $14.50
at Omaha and Chicago. Mixed No. 1-3, 270-
550# sows bulked at $10.50-12.25 with sales
to $12.50 at St. Louis National Stock Yards.
Feeder pigs closed steady to 50f lower
at So. St. Paul and were steady at Sioux City.
Good and Choice 100-160# feeder pigs at So.
St. Paul closed at $11.00-11.50; Medium and
Good 150-160# offerings at Sioux City $10.00-
11.00.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 5, live basis 200-220# bar-
rows and gilts was 860 per cwt. based on
wholesale carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at
Chicago January 28 to February 3, 1960 inclu-
sive.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area The week's supply was little changed
from the previous week but was 3 percent
under the corresponding week last year and
was the smallest for a full week since last
September. Mixed U. S. No. 1-5 butchers
180-240# comprised around 85 percent of the
butcher supply, the balance largely No. 2 and
3 grades and mainly under 280#. Sows comprised
slightly less than 5 percent of total receipts.
Closing prices compared with last Friday were
mostly steady to weak on butchers under 270#,
heavier weights firm to 250 higher, and sows
25# higher. U. S. No. 1-3 200-240# barrows
and gilts, including some 190-200# lots, sold
late at $12.45-13.25 with a moderate volume
of No. 1 and 2 selected lots at $13.25-13.50,
instances $15.60. Mixed No. 1-5 sows 270-
400# brought $10.50-12.00 with most sales
above $10.75; No. 1-5, 400-550# sows mostly
$9.50-11.00.


SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12
markets were 16 percent above the preceding
week and about 6 percent over the same
period last year. Wooled slaughter lambs
predominated the supply. Demand was fairly
good on most sessions at stronger prices and
for the week slaughter lambs sold steady
to $1.25 higher, largely 25-50f up. Slaugh-
ter ewes were steady to strong, instances
500 higher. Feeder lambs were steady to 500
higher.
During the week, most Good and Choice
90-115# wooled slaughter lambs sold from
$19.00-20.00, Choice 90-110# $20.00-20.50.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CART MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Normal receipts of
beef, lamb and pork were augmented by a carry-
over from, the previous week at most markets.
Below normal supplies of veal and calf were
fully adequate, instances excessive. Trading
on steer beef was moderately active, with hind-
quarters and ribs slowest moving at New York
and Philadelphia, and poor demand for ribs
and forequarters at Washington, and some carry-
over at these markets. Some beef unsold late
at Boston due mainly to. narrow demand. Veal
and calf met narrow outlet and weakness per-
meated the general price structure. Some car-
ryover was indicated at New York. Demand for
lamb was fairly good at all markets except
Boston, where heavy carryover was apparent.
However, a good clearance was effected at other
markets where prices were firm at the close.
The pork trade was rather featureless, with
demand only fair. Receipts although normal
were slightly curtailed from the previous week.
Clearance of pork was fairly complete at East-
ern Seaboard markets, other than at Boston
where a large volume was unsold late.
Compared with the previous week: Steer
beef prices were mostly steady to 50# higher
at Washington, but steady to $1.00 lower at
other points. Most sales were steady at New
York while the trend at Philadelphia was mainly
50 lower. Cow beef prices were 50f-$1,50 low-
er. Veal and calf sold mostly steady, some
sales at Baltimore steady to strong. Lamb
sales were mostly steady, instances $1.00 low-
er at Baltimore, and some $1.00 higher at Wash-
ington. Most sales of pork loins were steady
to $1.50 higher with bulk sales at New York
and Philadelphia $1.00 up. Prices on pork
loins at Boston were weak to $1.00 lower. Pork
spareribs were $1.00-2.00 lower at New York and
Philadelphia respectively, but steady else-
where. Boston butts and fresh skinned hams
were steady.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef and lamb
supplies were about normal. Moderate fresh
pork supply showed a slight decrease compared
to a week earlier. Veal receipts were small
with Choice and Prime offerings most limited.
Trading was moderately active on steer and heif-
er beef. Arm and squarecut chucks and rounds
met good demand with upturns on chucks par-
tially offset by lower selling ribs, partic-
ularly those over 30#. Loins also were rather
slow and prices declined slightly, however,
additional fabricating kept stocks from accu-
mulating. Trading on veal was slow throughout
but clearance of small supply was complete.
Carcass lamb and lamb hindsaddles were in mod-
erate demand, while fore-end cuts, especially
ribs were in poor demand. Trading was fairly


active on fresh pork, although spareribs
slowed at the close.
Compared to the previous Friday: Steer
and heifer beef steady to $1.00 higher; cow
beef steady to 50 lower; veal steady;
lamb steady to $1.50 higher; pork loins
8-16# steady to 500 higher; Boston butts
steady to $1.00 higher, spareribs 53# down
steady.


PACIFIC COAST Steer beef receipts
were again in adequate to slightly excessive
volume for a continued rather listless move-
ment. Choice carcasses under 600#, how-
ever, were still in limited supply at Los
Angeles. Cow beef was moderate at Los An-
geles but rather liberal at other markets
on the West Coast while calf and veal was
moderate to small. Lamb was fully adequate
while fresh and cured pork cuts were in
liberal supply with some accumulations of
smoked skinned hams at Los Angeles.
Prices compared to the previous weeks a
close: Steer beef steady to $1.00 lower;
cow beef unevenly steady to $1.00 higher
,at Los Angeles and $1.00 lower at Portland;
calf and veal mostly steady; lamb steady to
$1.00 lower; fresh and cured pork mostly
steady except for Boston butts instances
$2.00 lower at San Francisco and sliced ba-
con instances $1.00 higher in the Pacific
Northwest.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

Trading was moderately active on
steer and heifer beef at midwest points
but slow at the large consuming area as of
New York and Philadelphia. Beef supplies
were below normal at New York and Phila-
delphia but normal elsewhere. Good demand
prevailed for Choice offerings at most
centers except New York where outlet was
generally poor. Good carcasses met rather
narrow demand with some carryover, partic-
ularly at Omaha. Steer and heifer beef
sold generally higher with the most ad-
vance on Choice steer beef. Lamb car-
casses were sharply higher under a good
demand.
Compared to the previous week's close:
Steer beef at New York sold 504-$1.00 high-
er, elsewhere mostly 50 higher, instances
$1.00 up. Heifer beef sold steady to
500 higher at Chicago, Omaha and Denver,
instances $1.00 higher at Omaha. Prices
on lamb carcasses advanced sharply at most
points with carcasses 504-$1.50 higher at
Chicago, Omaha and New York, $1.00-2.00
up at Denver and strong to $1.50 higher
at Philadelphia.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading in the Boston wool market
was very slow. Prices of domestic worsted
wools were weak while woolen wool prices
continued about steady. Pulled woolen
wools, however, were strong.
The Australian and South African
markets opened weak on Monday but firmed
somewhat by midweek. Cabled reports from
New Zealand were erratic at midweek
following a lower price trend on Monday,.
Activity in South American markets was
slow and prices were lower.
Fleece, Wools There was very little
activity in fleece wools. A relatively
small weight of Delaine wool sold around
$1.25, clean. Shearing has started in
some sections of Ohio and Indiana.
Country buyers were paying around 48-52#
in Ohio and between 45-500 in Indiana
to the grower.
Territory Wools A large weight of
territory fine wool sold the latter part
of last week between $1.22-1.27 clean.
This included original bag and graded
wools. Around 9,000 fleeces of 5/8s and
1/4.blood Idaho were contracted at 52.750
in the grease, estimated to cost $1.17
for the 5/8s blood and $1.12 for the 1/4
blood clean. In Montana, around 525,000
pounds of medium and fine ewe wool was
contracted for early shearing between
46-49 ,in the grease. Activity in con-
tracting slowed this week due to lower
prices.
Texas Wools Activity in Telas
wools was slow. A sizable supply of
clippings sold from 21t-25# in the grease,
f.o.b. Texas, estimated to cost 90-950
clean, landed Boston.
Mohair Activity in mohair was ex-
tremely limited. Sales were insufficient
to establish a price level. Shearing
will begin in about two weeks, weather
permitting.
Foreign Wools Cabled reports at
week's end indicated little change from
midweek in the Dominion markets. Quo-
tations follow: Combing wools converted
to U. S. oil-combed yields and short wools
to scouring yields, in bond.
