MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices declined on slaughter steers and
heifers at most midwest markets despite cur-
tailed receipts. The downturns were influenced
by slow movement and lower prices on dressed
beef. Slaughter steers and heifers sold 25#-
$1.00 lower for the week. Barrows and gilts
closed steady to 25# lower over most of the
western Corn Belt while sales were strong to
500 higher in the eastern part of the area.
Slaughter lambs sold steady to 50 lower at
several points, but were steady to 250 higher
at Omaha, So. St. Paul and Sioux City.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Despite
sharply curtailed receipts, slaughter steers
and heifers suffered the sharpest price de-
cline in at least 7 weeks. Closing prices at
most markets were 254-$1.00 lower. At Sioux
City slaughter steer supplies were the smallest
since March 1959 and closing prices were steady
to 500 higher. Cattle supplies were unevenly
distributed for the second straight week with
weather again partly responsible. Marketings
were small after Tuesday due to icy roads and
the sharp price break which occurred in the
forepart of the week. As a result, supplies
for the period were down fully 10 percent, and
the smallest for any week since last August
excepting Holiday weeks. Dressed beef prices
continued to trend lower, and even though the
market showed slight rallying tendencies late,
early declines at most markets were far too
extensive to be erased. Most steers and heif-
ers were Good to average-Choice at the majority
of markets and graded somewhat lower on the
average than the week earlier. In Chicago,
however, Prime steers comprised fully 12 per-
cent of the steer supply, up somewhat from the
previous week and the same week a year ago. The
percentage of cows in supplies increased and
Prices were steady to $1.00 lower excepting
strong to 500 higher prices at Omaha and Sioux
City. Bulls sold steady to $1.00 lower; vealers
steady to strong.
Steers over 1300# remained hardest to
sell at some markets where heavy steers con-
tinued to run freely, while weights under 1150#
continued to get first call at all markets. In
Chicago, about 20 loads Prime 1150-1400# steers
$28.75-29.00, numerous loads mixed Choice and
Prime 1050-1350# $27.50-28.50 but loadlots
Commercial and Good 1500-1600# beeves $21.00-
21.75. Elsewhere, high-Choice and Prime steers
sold from $26.75-28.00, Choice 1000-1200# steers
bulking at $25.00-26.75, 1200-1400# $24.00-
25.50; Good largely $22.00-25.25. Prime heif-
ers sold up to $27.75 in Chicago and So. St. Paul
and up to $27.50 in Omaha. Bulk Choice heifers
$25.00-27.00, Good and low-Choice $21.50-25.00.
Most Utility and Commercial cows $14.00-16.50,


Canners and Cutters $12.00-15.00.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and
calves at terminal markets included moderate
numbers of high-Good and Choice stockers of
both yearling and calf ages as well as a mod-
erate number of well bred feeder fleshed cat-
tle. Adverse weather conditions in some in-
stances prompted a postponement in buying
plans and, along with this, recent downturns
in slaughter cattle prices and the estimate
of record numbers on feed this season were
factors influencing less aggressive buyer
competition than earlier this month. However,
considerable interest continued to exist in
stocker and feeder classes. Prices on stocker
and feeder steers at 10 markets last week
averaged $25.75, this about $4.00 below a
year ago while current slaughter steer prices
are only about $2.00 under a year ago. Thus,
with very abundant supplies of feeds stock-
piled throughout most of the major feeding
areas, outlet, even though slowed at times,
generally has been more than adequate for the
numbers currently being marketed. Stocker and
feeder prices for the most part were maintained
on a steady basis, the principal exception
being on steers 800# up, such kinds at sever-
al markets being unevenly weak to 50, and in
extremes 750-$1.00 lower in sympathy with down-
turns in slaughter cattle prices and lessened
packer buyer competition on fleshy two-way
kinds. In contrast, at Fort Worth prices
were generally strong to $1.00 higher.
Majority Good and Choice 800-950# feeder
steers brought $22.00-25.25, few Choice fleshy
800-825# $25.50-26.00 while Choice fleshy
1065# turned at $24.75. One load Good and
Choice fleshy 1100# sold at $22.50, the con-
tinued discrimination against weight in feeder
classes reflecting a similar condition in the
market for slaughter steers. Medium to low-
Good feeders 750-900# brought $19.00-22.50.
Good and Choice 600-750# stock steers bulked
$25.50-27.50, Choice 559# $29.50. Good and
Choice yearling heifers sold from $21.00-25.25.
Good and Choice steer calves went chiefly from
$26.00-31.00, few $51.50-52.00. Same grades
heifer calves $23.00-28.00, few up to $30.00.
Medium and Good stock cows in limited supply
from $14.00-18.00, few to $19.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at the
12 terminals were slightly smaller than a week
ago but about 5 percent larger than the same
week a year ago. Mixed U. S. No. 1-3, 200-250#
barrows and gilts again predominated in the
supply. Many of the western Corn Belt centers
continued to receive a substantial volume of








butchers over 270#. Sows comprised 6-11 per-
cent of the receipts at the various markets.
At most western Corn Belt centers, barrows and
gilts closed steady to 25# lower for the week
with the bulk of sales in the eastern part
of the area strong to 50# higher. Sows are
mostly 25-50# higher except steady at Omaha,
and 25# lower at Sioux City.
On closing rounds mixed No. 1-3, 190-250#
barrows and gilts sold from $12.75-13.50, more
uniform lots at some centers up to $13.75.
Selected lots of No. 1, and No. 1 and 2, usu-
ally averaging 190-250# and largely sorted
for both weight and grade uniformity brought
$13.50-14.25. Mixed No. 1-3, 270-550# sows
bulked at $10.50-12.00, but very few weighing
under 350# were available.
Feeder pigs closed steady at Sioux City
but were strong to 500 higher at So. St. Paul.
Good and Choice 100-160# feeder pigs at So.
St. Paul sold late at $11.00-12.00. Medium
and Good 130-160# offerings at Sioux City
brought $10.00-11.00.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Marketings were curtailed by adverse
weather conditions and poorer demand with the
result that receipts were the smallest for any
non-holiday week since last September. Bulk
of the supply again consisted of 200-240#
butchers with saws making up only about 5 per-
cent of offerings. Trading was fairly active
early in the week but rather slow late when
demand narrowed reflecting the slow action
and mostly lower price trends in the whole-
sale fresh pork trade. Prices for butchers
under 240# were steady to mostly 25# lower for
the week while heavier weights were steady to
15# higher. Sows were steady to 25# higher.
U. S. No. 1-3, 190-240# butchers sold late
from $12.45-13.55 with a small volume No. 1
and 2 $15.00-15.65. Mixed No. 1-3 270-400#
sows brought $10.50-11.75, 400-550# $8.75-
10.85.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Slaughter lamb sup-
plies at 12 markets were 13 percent under the
previous week's supply, and 19 percent less
than the comparable week last year. Wooled
slaughter lambs comprised the bulk of receipts
with Good and Choice predominating.
Compared with Friday the previous week,
closing slaughter lamb prices were steady to 50#
lower at several markets and steady to 25# high-
er at Omaha, So. St. Paul and Sioux City. Many
lambs, however, sold on a steady basis. Slaugh-
ter ewes sold steady to strong. Feeder lamb
prices were fully steady with some 50f higher
at Omaha and Kansas City.
Most Good and Choice wooled slaughter
lambs 90-115# sold at $18.50-20.00 with sever-
al loads and lots mostly Choice lambs 90-110#
$19.25-20.50 and four loads $20.75 late in
the week at Chicago. Utility and Good wooled
lambs ranged $16.00-19.50 with majority at
$17.00-18.50. Good to Choice shorn 90-110#


slaughter lambs with No. 1 and fall shorn
pelts brought $17.50-19.00. Cull to Choice
wooled and shorn slaughter ewes sold from $3.00-
6.50 and a few Choice $8.00 in Chicago.
Good and Choice feeder lambs 65-85# sold
at $18.00-19.50, Medium and Good $16.50-18.00.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area
slaughter lamb prices were steady to 25#
lower and slaughter ewes steady. Interior
area receipts were 9 percent less than the
previous week's supply, but 9 percent more
than the corresponding period last year. On
late rounds Good and Choice wooled slaughter
lambs 90-110# delivered to packing plants
sold at $18.00-19.00 with mostly Choice lambs
$19.00-19.25 under agreed weighing conditions
and to $19.50 in parts of southern Minnesota.
One consignment reached $20.00 at midweek.
Good and Choice lambs 110-120# and some Good
grade lambs 90-110# moved at $17.00-18.50.
Good and Choice 90-105# lambs with No. 1 and
fall shorn pelts went at $17.00-18.00.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Trading on fresh
meats was generally slow. Demand was poor
and clearance was incomplete as lower prices
failed to stimulate movement. Fairly complete
clearances were effected at Philadelphia,
but there was some carryover of steer beef
and pork loins at Washington, and a large
carryover of beef, lamb and pork at New York
and Boston. Supplies of most classes were
normal at Eastern Seaboard markets, except
veal and calf limited. Prices generally fol-
lowed a lower pattern, however, veal sold
higher at Washington and New York, and pork
spareribs advanced at most points. Compared
with the previous week: Steer beef prices
were uneven but averaged mostly steady at
Baltimore; prices declined 500-$2.00 at Phila-
delphia and Boston. The trend at Washington
steady to $1.50 off, while at New York the
small volume of Prime steer beef sold steady,
but Good and Choice closed weak to mostly 50#
lower. Cow beef sold steady to $1.50 lower;
veal steady at Boston and Baltimore, weak to
$1.00 lower at Philadelphia, steady to $1.00
higher at Washington. Prices for both veal
and calf were fully $1.00 higher at New York.
Lamb sales were on a weak to mostly lower
basis with declines at most points ranging
from $1.00-4.00. Pork loins closed $1.00-
5.00 lower, the bulk $2.00-5.00 off. Skinned
fresh hams sold mostly steady; Boston butts
steady to $2.00 lower; spareribs steady to
$2.00 higher, with the advance at Philadelphia,
Washington and New York.

CHICAGO Volume of beef, lamb and fresh
pork increased somewhat over the previous
week and was near normal. Supply of veal was
small. Beef supply included liberal showing
steer carcasses over 700#. Carcass beef trade
was rather slow, prices lower on initial
sessions following declines late in the pre-
vious week. Prices firmed somewhat on Wednes-
day when livestock receipts at the 12 markets
were nearly 50 percent less than a week
earlier. Beef ribs 30# and down cleared
satisfactorily but trading on other primal
beef cuts was generally slow. However, lower
price levels stimulated chuck movement some-
what at the close. Veal trade was dull but
sellers were able to clear small supplies.
Moderate demand prevailed for carcass lamb
with best action in this division on hindsad-
dles, legs and loins. Pork loins and spare-
ribs found adequate outlet while demand was
poor for Boston butts. Compared to the pre-
vious Friday: Steer and heifer beef 504-$1.00
lower; veal steady to $1.00 higher; lamb steady


to $1.00 lower; pork loins steady to $1.00
lower; Boston butts steady; spareribs 50-
$1.00 higher.


PACIFIC COAST Choice steer beef car-
casses under 600# continued in limited sup-
ply while Choice 600-900# along with Stand-
ard and Good was fairly liberal. Trading
on beef was generally slow and at Los Angeles,
clearances were incomplete. Calf and veal
were in moderate to small supply with lamb
carcasses under 55# moderate. Lamb car-
c&casses weighing 55-65# were more than ade-
quate for a poor demand. Fresh and cured
pork cuts were also more than adequate for
a slow movement with fairly large accumula-
tions of loins, N. Y. shoulders and smoked
skinned hams at Los Angeles. Prices com-
pared to the previous week's close: Steer
beef steady to 50# lower; cow beef weak to
$2.00 lower; calf mostly steady; veal steady,
instances $2.00 higher; lamb steady to $1.00
lower, the decline mostly on carcasses over
55#; fresh pork loins $2.00-4.00 lower; other
fresh and cured pork steady to $1.00 lower
except sliced bacon instances $2.00 higher
at San Francisco.




CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


Trading on steer and heifer beef was
generally slow with demand poor. Lamb car-
cass trading was only moderately active at
best. Volume of sales was below normal at
most points. At Chicago, steer and heifer
carcasses closed steady to $1.00 lower for
the week with most decline on Good, all
weights, and Choice 700-900#. Choice steer
beef sold mostly $1.00 lower at New York,
some sales $2.00 off, with Good $1.00-2.50
lower, mainly $2.00 off. All grades of
steer beef sold 500-$1.50 lower at Phila-
delphia. At Denver, sales were $1.00-1.50
lower on steer beef and 500-$1.00 lower on
heifer. At Omaha, Choice steer beef closed
$1.00-1.50 lower, Good $1.00-2.00 lower and
heifer 50#-$1.00 off. Price trends on
lamb were very uneven. Sales were steady
at Chicago, steady to 500 lower at Phila-
delphia and $1.00-1.50 off at Omaha. At
New York lamb sold $1.00-2.00 lower with most
decline on carcasses 55-65#, while at Den-
ver, 35-55# lamb sold $1.00 lower but 55-
65# carcasses were mostly steady.

in demand and sales were reported at 87-900
clean. Three-eights and quarter-blood
fleece wools were in demand but there were
none offered.
Territory Wools Northern Montana
reported the contracting of 8,500 fleeces
mixed 3/89 and 1/2-blood and including
2,000 fleeces 10 months ewes wool at $1.14
per pound, clean basis, landed Boston. Two
clips totalling 7,000 fleeces, mixed fine
and half-blood went at $1.13 to $1.13,
clean basis, landed Boston. About 3,000
mixed grade fleeces were contracted for
47-49# per grease pound, F.O.B. Montana.

inactive. The only reported sales were
clippings at 21J-240, grease basis.
