MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers were generally
steady to 50# lower at midwest markets. Most
decline was on steers grading Standard and
Good and on all grades 1500# up, these 75#-$1.50
lower at some markets. Lower prices an carlots
of dressed steer carcasses and the fact that
packer buyers attempted to reduce numbers of
livestock on hand due to the February 22 holi-
day were bearish factors in the live market.
This reduction in holdings also affected the
trade for other slaughter livestock, but was
usually offset by higher dressed prices and
moderate receipts. Barrows and gilts advanced
late to close strong to 50f higher for the week.
Slaughter lambs sold steady to 250 lower at
most points.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Despite
recent price upturns on virtually all slaughter
cattle, the 12 market receipts were down 2
percent from the previous week, but were
slightly above a year ago. A slow opening
trade on steers at lower prices served to
retard marketing later in the week. Never-
theless, early declines were extended in many
cases as buyers kept one eye on the approaching
slaughter holiday February 22, and the other
on price declines in the carlot dressed beef
trade. Good and Choice offerings again pre-
dominated in the steer and heifer supply, but
with the percentage of Good increased, the
spread in prices between Choice and Good widened
somewhat. The percentage of Prime in the steer
supply at Chicago dropped from 14 to 11 percent
for the week while the percentage Good increased
from 16 to 25. As a result, steers as well
as heifers grading Standard and Good found
narrow outlet and sold sharply lower at some
points.
The general trend on slaughter steers
was steady to 50f lower but ranged from steady
to $1.50 lower with all grades over 1500# and
all weights of Standard and Good under most
pressure. However, Choice steers sold steady
to 500 higher at St. Joseph and Sioux City.
Choice and Prime heifers closed steady to 50f
higher at some terminals but sales at Omaha,
So. St. Paul and Sioux City were steady to 50*
lower. Standard and Good heifers were usually
steady to $1.00 lower. Cow prices were steady
to $1.00 higher although advances at Chicago
more than erased with closing prices as much
as 500 lower. Bulls mostly steady to strong.
Vealers steady to $1.00 lower in So. St. Paul
but steady to $1.00 higher in St. Louis National
Stock Yards.
At Chicago a load Prime 1250# steers
cashed at $29.75; consignments largely Prime
1155-1350# $28.50-29.00, 20 loads at the later
price; high-Choice and Choice and Prime 1150-


1400# $26.75-28.50; bulk Choice $25.25-27.50
with a few high-Choice 900-1100# to $28.25
and same Choice 1545-1500# $24.50-25.00 late;
Good $22.50-26.00. At other midwest terminals
high-Choice and Prime 1000-1250# steers real-
ized $26.75-28.00, load mostly Prime 1250#
$28.25 at St. Joseph; most Choice 900-1250#
$25.00-27.00, 1250-1400# $24.00-26.00, Good
and low-Choice $22.50-25.50. Choice heifers
sold from $25.00-27.25 over the area with 2
loads Prime $28.25 at Chicago where high-
Choice and Prime heifers realized $27.25-
27.75; most Good heifers $21.50-24.50 and
to $25.25 at Chicago.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Seasonally light to moderate receipts of
stocker and feeder cattle and calves at ter-
minal markets were little different in number
than the previous week but over-all quality
was at a somewhat higher level as an increased
percentage of the supplies was made up of
average-Good to Choice offerings. Trading
was fairly active under a good demand. Prices
were steady to 50# higher and at several mar-
kets there were instances of a $1.00 upturn
on calves and yearlings. Feeder buyers showed
more inclination to compete with slaughter
buyers on partly fattened steers and the number
of fleshy two-way kinds purchased for further
feeding was larger than in recent weeks, A
growing demand for stockers is a normal develop-
ment in the weeks just ahead of a new grass
season.
Few loads Choice 500-575# stock steers
brought $29.00-50.00 and at Kansas City two
loads Choice 581-597# short yearlings reached
$52.00 and $52.55. Other Good and Choice
yearling stock steers sold chiefly from $24.00-
28.00; Medium and low-Good $21.00-24.50. Good
and Choice 800-1050# feeders bulked at $22.00-
25.50, including a moderate number Choice fleshy
900-1050# from $24.50-25.50; load Choice fleshy
700# yearlings brought $27.25. Medium feeders
sold from $19.50-22.00. Bulk Good and Choice
yearling heifers brought $22.50-25.50. Choice
and Fancy 510# steer calves brought $54.00,
few Choice 295# $55.00. Other Good and Choice
steer calves ranged $26.00-55.50, most sales
$27.00-52.00; same grades heifer calves chiefly
$25.00-28.00. Medium and Good stock cows
sold from $14.50-18.00, few young Good cows
$20.00-25.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Marketings con-
tinued to decrease at the 12 terminals where re-e.
ceipts were 8 percent less than the previous
week and the smallest for any week since Sep-
tember. At most of the centers, mixed U. S.
No. 1-5, 200-250# barrows and gilts made up the


142





7-


bulk of the supply. At some markets in the
eastern Corn Belt, however, sizable numbers
weighing 180-200# were included in the receipts
Sows made up 5-11 percent of the supply at the
various markets. Price spreads continued quite
narrow as bulk 180-500# barrows and gilts are
sold within a $1.25 spread. Price trends were
somewhat uneven throughout the area during
the week. At many centers price strength de-
veloped early with weakness evident during the
middle of the week while advances were general
late on relatively small numbers. Compared
with the previous week' s close,, barrows and
gilts at most centers sold strong to 500 higher,
but steady to 250 lower at So. St. Paul. Sows
closed largely 25-500 higher.
At most terminals Friday, mixed U. S. No.
1-5, 190-250# barrows and gilts sold at $15.75-
14.25 with sales largely $15.25-13.50 at So.
St. Paul and at Indianapolis 180-270# offerings
brought $13.25-14.00. Selected lots of No. 1,
and No. 1 and 2, these largely sorted for
grade and weight uniformity 190-250# brought
$15.75-14.75, few reaching $15.00 at Omaha.
No. 1-5, 270-550# saows bulked at $11.25-12.75.
Feeder pigs sold steady at So. St. Paul
and strong at Sioux City. At.So. St. Paul
Good and Choice 100-160# feeder pigs brought
$11.00-11.50 while at Sioux City Medium and
Good 150-160# sold at $10.50-11.50, mainly
$11.00 up.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 5, live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 90f per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
February 11 to February 17, 1960 inclusive.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts of hogs were a little smaller
than in the previous week and considerably
below the corresponding period last year. De-
mand was generally good for fairly liberal sup-
plies early in the week and moderate advances
were recorded. However, demand was curtailed
later and marketing were retarded due to some
price weakness. Compared with the previous
Friday, late sales were strong to 150 higher
on butchers and mostly 250 higher on sows,
instances 40# up. U. S. No. 1-5 190-240# butch-
ers sold on Friday within a general range of
$12.55-15.40 with a limited volume of mostly
No. 1 and 2 grades $15.40-15.75; few lots se-
lected No. 1 delivered to plants reached $14.00.
Mixed No. 1-5 270-400# sows brought $10.75-
12.00; 400-550# largely $9.50-11.50.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12 mar-
kets were 6 percent more than the previous
week but 15 percent less than a year ago. Prices
were little changed from the previous week with
the general trend steady to 250 lower. However,
at Omaha where receipts were 46 percent larger
than the previous week, slaughter lambs sold
25#-$1.00 lower, wooled lambs mostly 75#-$1,.00


off. Denver was also the exception where
slaughter lambs sold 50-750 higher. Slaughter
ewes were steady to strong, instances 500
higher. Feeder lambs were steady to 500
higher, instances $1.00 up at Fort Worth.
Late in the week, Good and Choice 90-115#
wooled slaughter lambs sold from $19.50-20.50,
Choice mainly $20.00-21.00, few early to
$21.50. Good and Choice 80-110# shorn slaugh-
ter lambs with No. 1 and Fall pelts sold from
$18.50-19.50, consignments Choice $19.25-
19.75, and sparingly $20.00-20.50, at Chi-
cago. Cull to Choice slaughter ewes bulked
from $35.00-7.00.
Good and Choice 70-85# feeder lambs
realized $18.50-20.50, Medium and Good 60-
85# $16.00-18.50.
Slaughter lambs in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area were steady to strong
for the week with slaughter ewes steady. De-
mand was fairly good on most rounds with the
trade influenced by price strength for dressed
lamb. Interior receipts were 6 percent less
than the previous week but a little above
the same period last year. On Friday, Good
and Choice 90-110# wooled slaughter lambs
delivered to packing plants sold from $19.00-
20.00 mostly $19.50-20.00, Choice $20.00-
20.50. Good and Choice 90-105# shorn
slaughter lambs with No. 1 and Fall pelts
sold from $18.00-19.00p Choice to $19.25.
Cull to Choice wooled slaughter ewes ranged
from $2.00-5.00.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


IESS THAN CARLOT MBAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Despite an end to the
strike which closed approximately 257 stares in
the Washington area, repercussions were still
evident in the Eastern Seaboard meat traffic.
Restocking of stores drew heavily from above
normal receipts of beef and pork at strike af-
fected markets, and readily cleared small sup-
plies of lamb and veal. However, supplies of
beef slightly exceeded outlet at Washington,
with some carryover evident, particularly ribs.
Near complete clearance was in view at Phila-
delphia, under renewed volume lot buying, which
was instrumental in dissolving what appeared
as burdensome supplies, due to poor distributive
demand. Supplies were normal at Boston except
volume of beef small, with poor clearance for
beef and pork under rather narrow outlet. Be-
low normal receipts of all classes at New York
met fairly broad demand, and clearance generally
complete for cow beef, veal, calf, lamb and pork.
However, small lots of steer forest, arm chucks,
and in instances hinds failed to clear. Prices
for meats generally followed a steady to higher
trend.
Compared with the previous week: Steer
beef steady to 500 higher; cow beef steady to
$1.50 higher with some upturn at all markets ex-
cept Baltimore; veal and calf prices mostly
steady, instances strong on veal at Baltimore
and New York. Lamb sold steady to $2.00 higher,
with the full advance at New York on the closing
session. Sales of pork loins were on a steady
to $3.00 higher basis, the bulk $1.00-2.00
higher, and closing sales at New York fully
$3.00 up. Other fresh pork cuts were steady to
$1.00 higher, with the only decline for the week
recorded at Philadelphia, where Boston butts
sold #1.00-2.00 lower.

CHICAGO Supplies were generally moderate
in the beef, lamb and fresh pork divisions. Good
and low-Choice carcasses predominating in the
beef receipts, and most pork loins weighed 8-120.
Veal supply remained small. Steer and heifer
beef prices held steady after Monday when
slight declines were recorded, trading generally
moderately active. Beef arriving too late for
last week's trade because of bad weather was
carried over and resulted in curtailed buying
at the outset. Arm and squarecut beef chucks
and ribs had fairly broad outlets, while demand
for rounds was poor and prices declined $1.00.
Loins were also slow but prices held steady. A
moderately active early veal trade slowed with
considerable price resistance at the close.
Lamb in moderate demand, good clearance all cuts
except stews and shoulders. Fresh pork trading
was mostly slow, however, loins advanced. Com-
pared to the previous Fridays Steer and heifer
beef steady to 500 lower; cow beef steady to 500


higher; real weak; lamb 500-$1.00 higher;
pork loins 8-16# 50#41.00 ups other pork
cuts steady.

PACIFIC COAST Choice steer beef con-
tinued in moderate supply while other grades
of steer beef were somewhat more plentiful.
Cow beef was limited at Portland and San
Francisco, and moderate elsewhere. Calf was
in moderate supply at San Francisco, slightly
liberal on 200-300# carcasses at Los Angeles
and very limited at Portland. Lamb was
in rather limited supply and trading mod-
erately active. Fresh and cured pork cuts
were moderate but adequate with some accum-
lations of loins and smoked skinned hams
at Los Angeles. Prices compared with the
previous week's closes Steer beef unevenly
steady to $1.00 higher in California but
steady to $1.00 lower in the Pacific North-
west; cow beef steady to $1.00 lower at Los
Angeles but $1.00 higher elsewhere; lamb
strong to $2.00 higher; calf and veal mostly
steady except instances $4.00 lower on calf
at Los Angeles; fresh pork loins steady to
$5.00 higher; other fresh pork steady to
$2.00 higher; smoked skinned hams and sliced
bacon steady to $2.00 higher, the advance
in the Pacific Northwest; lard steady ex-
cept 500 higher at Los Angeles.


CARLOT M2AT TRADE *REVIEWS

layed purchasing by buyers at Eastern cen-
ters in view of the holiday Monday Feb. 22.

on 800-900# steer carcasses and Good all
weights. Denver the exception where Choice

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading of greasy domestic worsted
wools was limited in the Boston market as
prices tended easier. Demand continued
rather good for greasy medium grade fleece
wools and a few sales were made. Turnover
of woolen wools and noils was slow at
steady prices.
There was a little activity in the
fleece wool States as prices were slightly
lower. Shearing had commenced in Texas
but trading was limited. Few sales were
recorded in the territory States.
Cabled reports from all the Dominion
markets showed prices declining. Sales at
South American markets were slightly lower
while carpet prices declined under a poor
demand.
Fleece Wools A few sales of graded
50/54s staple fleece wool brought $1.00
clean basis for May-June delivery. Prices
for medium grade wools to the growers in
Ohio ranged around 50# grease basis, while
45-500 was the price range in Indiana for
wool now being shorn.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good
French combing and staple territory wool
brought around $1.20 clean basis in the
Boston market. About 100,000 pounds of
wool sold at 460 grease basis in Arizona
and approximately 40,000 pounds of medium
lambs wool brought 45-46#, grease basis in
Northern Colorado.
Mohair Shearing was well under way
in Texas and prices were generally at
$1.011 for adult and $1.51i for kid mohair
to the warehouse with a small quantity sold
at 96# and $1.261 respectively. In the
mohair paragraph of last week's issue, the
sentence starting in the second line should
have read as follows: "It is estimated
that approximately one-half the Spring 1960
clip is still unsold."
Foreign Wools Cabled reports at
week's end showed prices at all foreign
markets slightly weaker. Quotations follow
on combing wools converted to clean U. S.
oil-combed yields and short wools to scour-
ing yields in bond.

CALF CROP, 1959

CALF CROP UP 2 PERCENT

The 1959 calf crop totaled 41, 046, 000 head, 2 percent larger than the 1958
calf crop of 40,409, 000 head, according to the Crop Reporting Board. The in-
crease shown for 1959 reversed the down trend of the previous 4 years. The 1959
calf crop was 4 percent below the record-high 1954 crop of 42, 601, 000 calves,
but was 7 percent above the 1948-57 average. All regionsexcept the North Atlan-
tic and East North Central show larger calf crops in 1959.

The larger calf crop during the past year was due primarily to the larger
number of cows and heifers on farms. The number of cows and heifers 2 years
old and older January 1, 1959 amounted to 47, 001, 000 head, compared with
46, 520, 000 head January 1 a year earlier, and by January 1, 1960 had increased
to 48, 594, 000 head.
The number of calves born in 1959, expressed as a percent of the cows and
heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1959, at 87 percent was the same as 1958.
This percentage is not strictly a calving rate, since the January 1 inventory of
cows and heifers 2 years old and older does not include all heifers which give
birth to calves during the year and includes some cows that die or are slaughtered
before calving. This percentage is calculated to show trend in productivity over
a period of time. It may fluctuate from year to year due to variation in cow
slaughter and trends in breeding herd replacement.
NORTH CENTRAL STATES
The 1959 calf crop totaled 16. 795, 000 head in the North Central States, up
1 percent from 1958 and 2 percent larger than the 10-year average. The East
North Central States had a 2 percent smaller calf crop while the West North Cen-
tral States, with nearly two-thirds of the North Central total, had a 2 percent
larger calf crop.
The 1959 calf crop for the North Central Region was 91 percent of the cows
and heifers 2 years old and older the first of the year, the same as in 1958.

SOUTHERN STATES
In the South Central States the 1959 calf crop at 10, 847, 000 head exceeded
a year earlier by 3 percent and in the South Atlantic States the calf crop totaled
3, 320, 000 head, 1 percent larger than in 1958. The calf crop as a percent of cows
and heifers 2 years old and older was 85 percent in the South Central States, and
in the South Atlantic States, 79 percent--both up I point from 1958.
WESTERN STATES
The calf crop in the 11 Western States at 7, 191, 000 head, was 3 percent
larger than in 1958. All States in this region showed larger calf crops in 1959.
The calf crop as a percent of cows 2 years old and older was 88 percent, unchang-
ed from a year earlier.
NORTH ATLANTIC STATES
The calf crop of 2, 893, 000 head for 1959 in the North Atlantic States com-
pares with 2, 910, 000 head a year earlier. The calf crop was 85 percent of cows
and heifers 2 years old and older, up I point from a year earlier.
