Prices on slaughter steers and heifers
declined at most midwest terminals. The down-
turns were influenced by lower dressed beef
prices and the seasonal pre-Thanksgiving week
shift in consumer demand to poultry. Most
slaughter steers at Chicago sold 504-$1.50
lower with bulk sales at other midwest centers
25-500 off. The week's hog receipts were
among the largest of the year. Prices on
barrows and gilts were steady to 250 lower for
the week. Slaughter lambs sold steady at most
centers.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts
of salable cattle at the 12 markets totaled
250,000 head or 20,000 less than in the pre-
vious week but 48,000 more than a year ago.
The number of slaughter steers sold out of
first hands at the 7 markets at 76,440 com-
pares with 75,460 the previous week and 69,484
a year ago. Prices declined on slaughter
steers and heifers at midwest markets with
lower dressed beef prices influencing the
downturns. At Chicago, slaughter steers sold
504-$2.00 lower, mostly 504-$1.50 off, with
Prime steers over 1200# and Choice under 1050#
showing the least decline. At other midwest
terminals fed steers sold unevenly steady to
$1.00 lower, however, the bulk of the steer
supply was 25-500 lower. Most decline was on
Standard and Good steers. Slaughter heifers
at Chicago closed 504-$1.50 lower, with sales
at other terminals steady to 50* lower, in-
stances $1.00 off. At most markets, slaugh-
ter cows were steady to 500 higher, instances
$1.00 up, however, sales were 50* lower at
Omaha and Utility and Commercial cows at
Chicago sold 504-$1.50 lower. Bulls ranged
from steady to $1.50 lower; vealers steady to
$2.00 lower.
At Chicago 25 loads of high-Choice and
Prime 1175-1390# slaughter steers brought
$28.25-28.50, load $28.75; same grades 1500-
1600# $25.00-27.00; most Choice and Prime
$25.00-28.00; Good $25.00-24.75 late. Choice

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
The movement of stocker and feeder steers
throughout major producing states continued
to taper off seasonally but supplies were
ample for a rather dull trade. Shipments of
stocker and feeder steers from the 10 markets
at 34,146 compared to 39,505 the week pre-
vious and 26,051 a year ago. Outgo of calves
from these markets totaled 57,482 compared to
34,642 and 26,474. Prices were lower on all
stocker and feeder classes and the average
price of stocker and feeder steers at the 10
markets at $23.65 was $3.53 below a year ago
and the lowest since February 1958. The
week's downturn was influenced by further de-
clines on slaughter cattle. Price trends on
stocker and feeder steers and heifers were
steady to $1.00 lower with stock calves weak
to $1.50 off, and stock cows weak to $1.00
lower.
Good and Choice 800-1000# feeder steers
sold at $20.50-235.50, liberal share $21.00-
22.50, few loads Choice, including partly
fattened usually under 950# $24.00-25.50,

HOGS Combined receipts in the Interior
Iowa-So. Minnesota area and at the 12 markets
were the largest in three years except for
the first week in November this year. The
bulk of the butcher supply was made up of mixed
No. 1, 2 and 35, 200-250# consignments. Sows
comprised from 9-14 percent of the supplies
at the various markets and made up almost 9
percent of the Interior run.
Price changes were moderate on a daily
basis. However, there was generally a weaken-
ing tendency as declining pork prices at
wholesale centers and slow movement of the
product, influenced by the seasonal poultry

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Sales of greasy domestic worsted wools
in the Boston market were limited. Prices
held about steady on all classes. In the
woolen trade, scoured pulled wools and
noils were slow but about steady. Activity
in the domestic primary areas centered in
Casper, Wyoming, Salt Lake City, Utah and
in Texas late last week where sealed bid.
sales were held and a fair volume of origi-
nal bag wools sold.
Cabled reports from Australia at mid-
week indicated a strong trend with Iron
Curtain countries and Japan active. Prices
in New Zealand were very firm with good
competition including Eastern Europe, Japan
and the United States dominating and Brad-
ford supporting moderately. Prices in
South Africa remained firm under general
competition with the U.S.A. participating.
Trading in South America was very slow.
Territory Wools Approximately
200,000 pounds of Wyoming wools were sold
in original bags at grease prices ranging
from 44-56# delivered Boston. Fine wools
were priced generally from 46-524, while
3/8s and 1/4 blood wools ranged from 52-560
in the grease. Original bag grading wools
sold in Salt Lake City at 46*1, grease
basis, delivered Boston.
Texas Wools A good volume of original
bag 12 months wools, bulk average to good
French combing length sold in Texas at an
estimated clean price around $1.20-1.23,
delivered Boston.
Mohair Recent mohair purchases in
Texas ranged from $1.01-1.061 for adult
and $1.41^-1.71- for kid hair to the ware-
house. Most sales were for export to Eng-
land and the Continent. A little contract-
ing was done at 91 f for adult and $1.162-
for kid hair for spring delivery.
Foreign Wools Sales in Montevideo
included super skirted 60s and 60/64s
around $1.02-1.03 in bond, while 56/58s and
58s sold around 990 clean fibers present,
for shipment. Foreign quotations at week's

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


NEW YORK Non-locally dressed: Bulk
of the week's fresh meat supply sold to inde-
pendent retail and hotel and restaurant out-
lets as demand by chain store buyers was rath-
er poor. Outlet was fair for Prime steer
hindquarters along with Choice and Prime short
loins and ribs. A fair demand also prevailed
for lamb, veal and calf foresaddles and most
pork. Outlet was narrow for Good and Choice
steer hindquarters, arm chucks, veal and calf
hindsaddles and cow beef carcasses. Supplies
of railstocks and pork were moderate to nor-
mal, with the larger percentage of fresh
meats on offer prior to Wednesday. Compared
with Friday, the week previous: Prime steer
carcass prices 50f higher, Good and Choice
$1.00 lower; cow beef and calf $1.00 lower;
veal $2.00 off; lamb weak to $1.50 lower,
mainly $1.00 off; pork loins $3.00 lower;
spareribs $2.00 off; other pork cuts weak to
$1.00 lower.
Locally dressed: Production of rail-
stocks and pork was below normal during the
pre-holiday week. Prices for Prime steer
hindquarters strong to $1.00 higher, Choice
50f to mainly $1.00 lower; Choice and Prime
ribs $1.00-2.00 higher; arm chucks $1.00-2.00
lower. Quotations on veal hindsaddles were
unchanged, however, bulk sales were in the
lower half of price quotations. Calf hind-
saddles sold $2.00-4.00 lower; lamb carcasses
$1.00-2.00 off; pork loins $3.00-4.00 lower.
Demand was fair for Prime steer hindquarters,
Choice and Prime ribs, short loins and pork,
but poor for other fresh meats. Kosher re-
tailers absorbed normal quantities of steer
ribs, but trading was slow for other kosher
steer beef wholesale cuts, lamb, veal and
particularly calf kosher foresaddles.

CHICAGO Steer beef carcasses 700# up
and heifer over 600# comprised the bulk of
normal supply in this division. Volume of
other fresh meats was also normal. Rather
broad outlet prevailed for beef ribs 30# and
down but demand for more abundant heavier
weights was rather poor. Early trading was
fairly active for chucks and rounds but prices
declined late in a slow trade. Beef loins
were slow throughout. Carcass beef prices de-
clined in a slow trade. Downturns on most
primal beef cuts proved bearish in the car-
cass trade. Demand for veal was narrow. Trad-
ing for lamb was slow, best demand for stews
and shoulders. Fresh pork trade slow on in-
itial sessions, however, volume accounts rath-
er aggressive loin buyers after Tuesday and
early decline was recovered. Compared to the
previous Friday: Steer and heifer beef 50f-
$1.00 lower; cow beef $1.00-1.50 lower; veal
and lamb $1.00-2.00 lower; pork loins 8-16#
steady to $1.00 higher; Boston butts 4-8#


steady to 500 lower; spareribs 5# down $1.00-
2.00 lower.
Choice and Prime squarecut beef chucks
brought $59.00-41.00; same grades of rounds
$52.00-54.50; Prime loins $76.00-90.00, Choice
$65.00-75.00; Prime ribs $56.00-60.00, Choice
$50.00-56.00; Choice and Prime kosher style
chucks $40.00-41.00. Lamb hindsaddles sold
at $52.00-56.00; legs $51.00-55.00; loins
$52.00-57.00; ribs $48.00-55.00; stews $23.00-
26.00; shoulders $55.00-56.00.

PACIFIC COAST Choice steer beef under
700# continued in rather limited supply while
other steer and cow beef was liberal and
clearance was incomplete. Calf and veal was
in rather small supply; lamb a little above
normal; most fresh and cured pork liberal ex-
cept smoked skinned hams moderate at Los An-
geles and Portland. Trading the first part
of the week was fairly active. However, later
in the week demand was curtailed and trading
at all points slow, this typical of a pre-
Thanksgiving week. Prices compared with last
week's close: Steer beef steady to $1.00
lower; cow beef $1.00-2.00 lower; calf and
veal steady, except some sales $1.00 lower at
San Francisco; lamb $1.00-2.00 lower; fresh
pork loins $1.00-4.00 lower; other fresh pork
steady to $2.00 lower except spareribs $1.00-
3.00 lower; smoked skinned hams generally
$1.00-3.00 higher except $1.00-2.00 lower at
San Francisco; sliced bacon steady to $2.00
lower; lard steady.
Choice steer beef under 650# brought
mostly $41.50-46.00, some sales reaching $47.00
at Seattle, 650-700# $41.00-45.00, 700-800#
$59.00-45.00; Good steer under 700# $58.00-
44.00.

SHIPS SAILINGS WITH MEAT FOR U. S. The
Agricultural Attache in Australia reported the
following ships sailings for the United States
with frozen beef: The Orcades sailed October
27 with 123,200# for San Francisco and
55,760# for Los Angeles; Pioneer Surf, Octo-
ber 31 with 647,360# for New York, 98,560#
for Boston and 47,040# for Chicago; City
of Birkenhead, October 31 with 1,061,760# for
New York and 134,400# for Philadelphia.
Note: Cities listed indicate locations
of purchasers and in some instances meat may
be diverted for sale to other areas.

CARLOT MEAT REPORT Declines on dressed
beef and lamb during the week and the seasonal
pre-Thanksgiving week shift in demand to poul-
try items were factors influencing a slow
trade. Compared with the previous week, steer
beef sold 50f-$1.50 lower, mostly $1.00 off;
heifer beef 500-$1.00 lower. Lanb carcasses
closed $1.00-2.00 off.
