MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price trends on slaughter steers were
generally steady to 500 higher over the Corn
Belt despite some unevenness. Slaughter heifers
closed steady to 250 higher, cows strong to 50f
higher for the most part. Stocker and feeder
cattle and calves fully steady, instances 500
higher. Upturns on dressed beef stimulated
outlet for slaughter cattle and influenced the
advances in the live trading. Prices on barrows
and gilts continued to advance following sharp
upturns late in the previous week and closed
steady to 500 higher despite downturns at the
close of the current week. Substantial advances
on pork loins and moderate upturns on other pork
cuts were instrumental in effecting the advance
in hog prices. Trends were also steady to 500
higher at most markets on spring slaughter lambs
although sales at St. Joseph and Fort Worth were
steady to 500 lower. Here again higher carlot
prices on the dressed product contributed to
the upturns.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers and heifers sold on a steady to higher
basis for the second consecutive week at most
midwest terminals. Receipts for the holiday-
shortened period were reduced by fully 12 per-
cent and this along with a generally higher
trend on carcass beef at major wholesale dressed
meat centers influenced the advance. Slaughter
steers were generally steady to 50 higher with
the greatest upturn on Choice and Prime weighing
1500# and below in most cases. However, in
Chicago, Choice and Prime steers 1250# and
heavier were steady to 250 lower. The decline
at that point chiefly due to near record temper-
atures resulting in heavy death losses on the
long-fed fat steers. Heifers sold steady to 250
higher. Cows and bulls were steady to 50
higher with some up 754 in Chicago. Vealers
were mostly steady to $1.00 higher at St. Paul
and St. Louis. Consist of the receipts at
major midwest terminals were little changed
from the previous week with slaughter steers and
heifers continuing to form the bulk in most
cases. Good to average-Choice grades predomi-
nated in the steer and heifer supply but several
centers received a small increase in the number
of high-Choice and Prime steers. The percentage
Prime in Chicago was up 2 percent from the 10
percent the prylous week. "
Several loaalsad f'nostly Prime 1150-1400#
steers brought $27.00-27.25 at Chicago where
bulk of the high-Choice and mixed Choice and
Prime sold from $5.25.25-26.75 with a few loads
high-Choice 1550-1525# froi.$24.25-25.00 at
midwe k.. Most average-Choioe $24.50-25.50;
Good send low-Choice $22.00-24.50. At other
midwest terminals high-Ch#ice and Prime steers


realized $25.25-25.75; bulk Choice $24.00-
25.00; mixed high-Good and low-Choice $25.00-
24.00; Good $21.50-23.50; Standard and low-
Good $18.00-21.50. Few loads high-Choice and
mi-xed Choice and Prime slaughter heifers
brought $24.00-24.75 with a few loads from
$25.00-25.25 at Chicago. Choice heifers
bulked at $23.00-24.50; Good and low-Choice
$20.00-23.00. Utility and Commercial cows
brought $15.50-16.00; Canners and Cutters
$11.50-14.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
With marketing interrupted by a Monday holiday,
receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and calves
at terminal markets fell considerably below the
previous week and were moderately below the
corresponding week a year ago. Average-Medium
to average Choice yearling and two-year-old
steers predominated. Relatively few offerings
averaged over 950#, but marketing included
scattered shipments of three-year-olds weighing
up to 1200#. Stock calves continued in rela-
tively small supply. Trading at midwest termi-
nals generally was fairly active on most all
classes and grades at steady to strong prices.
Moderate upturns in slaughter cattle prices the
past two weeks tended to encourage increased
interest in stockers and feeders at current price
levels but buyers generally were very price
conscious in the face of a reported record large
cattle and calf population.
A few Choice 800# steers brought $24.00,
other Good and Choice 800-1050# feeders $20.50-
25.50, few $23.85. At Omaha 7 loads Good and
Choice 1155-1208# steers sold to feeder buyers
at $20.50-20.65. Medium and low-Good feeders
cashed from $18.00-21.00. Scattered shipments
Choice stock steers, mostly 550-650# brought
$25.75-26.00, couple loads 558-543# $26.25-26.50.
Bulk Good and Choice 550-700# sold from $22.00-
25.50, Medium and low-Good $18.00-22.00. Few
loads Choice 525-574# heifers brought $24.50-
25.00, other Good and Choice yearling heifers
$19.00-24.00 with most sales from $19.00-23.00.
Good and Choice stock steer calves sold from
$22.00-28.75, mostly $27.00 down although a
package of Choice 312# reached $29.50. Good and
Choice heifer calves brought $20.00-26.00. A
limited number of Medium and Good stock cows sold
from $15.50-16.00; few loads Good two to four-
year old 775-850# mixed cows and heifers at
Denver $16.00-17.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog receipts at
the 12 markets for the holiday-shortened week
were only slightly reduced from the previous
five-day week but were 8 percent under the cor-
responding week a year ago. Marketings









were the smallest for any week since early in
July which also included a holiday. Bulk of
the supply was comprised of No. 1-3, 190-250#
barrows and gilts with the percentage of sows
continuing to show a seasonal decline. Outlet
on shipper account was fairly broad at many of
the markets, those interests taking nearly 40
percent of the supply at Omaha and Kansas City.
Broad demand from all interests on most sessions
further extended a price upswing that had begun
late the previous week. Sizable advances on
pork loins and moderate upturns on other pork
cuts were factors contributing to the advance
in live prices. Part of the upturn was erased
late but barrows and gilts finished the period
generally steady to 500 higher, except Sioux
City where prices closed steady to 250 lower
and Sioux Falls 50-750 lower. Trends were
uneven on sows, in general prices were steady
to 75# lower at northwest Corn Belt terminals,
while sales at other centers were steady to 50
higher and 500-$1.00 up at Chicago.
At the close U. S. 1-2, and mixed No. 1-3,
190-250# barrows and gilts brought $16.25-16.90,
largely $16.25-16.75. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and
U. S. 2-3, 180-270# bulked at $15.75-16.50,
same grades 190-260# at Indianapolis $16.25-
16.60. U. S. 1-3, 270-600# sows sold largely
at $12.50-15.00, a few U. S. 1-2, 270-530/#
$15.25-15.50.
Prices on feeder pigs were steady to weak
at Sioux City but advanced 500 at St. Paul.
Medium to mostly Good 150-160# feeders sold at
$14.50-15.25 at Sioux City, while Good and
Choice, mostly Good 130-160# offerings at St.
Paul brought $14.50-15.00.

HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts were 12 percent more than the
previous week even though this was a holiday-
shortened week. However, marketing were 9
percent below the corresponding week last year
which also included Labor Day. Prices advanced
due to a good demand which was stimulated by
generally higher dressed pork prices. On
Thursday, a break in a week-long heat-wave
encouraged a sharp increase in marketing and
resulted in a portion of the advance being
erased. Closing butcher prices, compared with
the previous Friday, were 35-50( higher and
sows were 40-750 higher. Mixed No. 1-3, 200-
240# butchers sold late at $15.00-15.60 with
some mostly No. 1 and 2 lots from $15.50-16.00.
Mixed No. 1-3, 270-400# sows brought $13.25-
15.15; 400-550# mostly $11.75-15.65.

SHEEP AND LAMBS The 12-market sheep and
lamb receipts were slightly less than both the
previous week and a year ago. Higher dressed
lamb prices stimulated demand and trends on
spring slaughter lambs at most terminals were
steady to 500 higher, instances $1.00 up. How-
ever, sales at Ft. Worth and St. Joseph were
steady to 500 lower. Slaughter ewe prices were


uneven, mostly steady. Feeder lambs were mainly
steady, instances 500 lover.
Choice and Prime 85-115# spring slaughter
lambs, including limited numbers shorn with No. 1-
2 pelts closed from $18.00-19.50, instances
$20.00-21.00; Good and Choice $16.00-19.00, mainly
$17.00-19.00; Utility and Good $13.00-17.00. A
few shipments of Good and Choice 95-113# shorn
slaughter yearlings, No. 1 and fall shorn pelts,
realized $14.00-16.25. At Ft. Worth Cull and
Utility shorn yearlings $8.00-12.00. Cull to
Choice shorn slaughter ewes ranged from $2.00-
4.00, few to $5.00.
Good and Choice 50-85# feeder lambs brought
$15.00-17.25; around 5 loads mainly Choice 60-68#
western feeders $17.50-18.50, the latter price at
Omaha. Medium and Good feeders $13.00-16.00, Com-
mon and Medium $10.00-14.00. Few short-term
breeding ewes moved at $4.00-6.50.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area,
receipts for the holiday-shortened week were 7
percent less than a week earlier but slightly
over a year ago. Spring slaughter lamb prices
were steady to strong, instances 504 higher;
slaughter ewes were scarce and steady. On Friday,
Choice with a few Prime 80-105# spring slaughter
lambs delivered to packing plants sold from
$17.00-18.00, mostly $17.50-18.00; few Choice and
Prime high-yielding lambs $18.25-18.50. Good and

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Active trading pre-
vailed on the Eastern Seaboard with virtually
all outlets aggressive at the wholesale mar-
kets. It was very evident that retail stocks
needed replenishing as majority fresh meats
moved well, with clearance good on all classes.
Pork moved readily and early at Eastern Sea-
board markets with loin prices higher at all
points. Pork receipts were mostly moderate at
Philadelphia and New York, otherwise normal.
Beef ribs, rounds and chucks met broad demand,
with other cuts fair to broad, while movement
of veal, calf and spring lamb was mostly ac-
tive. Supplies of beef, lamb, veal and calf
were normal except at New York, where unloads
these classes were decreased a bit.
Compared with previous weeks Steer beef
steady to $1.00 higher, bulk 50# higher, cow
beef steady to 50# higher, veal and calf
steady to $1.00 higher at all markets ex-
cept New York, where prices were fully $1.00
lower. Spring lamb prices were mostly steady
despite unevenness at some markets. Pork loin
prices advanced $1.00-7*00, with sales after
mid-week at New York $4i.00-7.00 higher. Other
pork cuts steady to $1.00 higher, except fresh
skinned hams $1.00 lower at New York and some
sales at Baltimore $1.00-2.00 lower. Kosher
steer forequarters closed strong to $1.00
higher, spring lamb prices advanced $1.00 and
$2.00. Quotations for kosher veal and calf
were unchanged.

CHICAGO Due to suspension of slaugh-
tering on Monday, fresh meat supplies for the
week were only moderate but generally adequate.
Most beef graded Good and Choice, Choice and
Prime lamb carcasses weighing 35-55# predomi-
nated and bulk of the pork loins weighed 8-
12#. Beef prices advanced on the initial
session influenced by somewhat reduced sup-
plies. The bulk moved as primal cuts with
activity on carcasses rather limited. Chucks,
ribs and rounds met a fair demand and sold
steady to slightly higher. On the other hand
loins moved slow but held mainly steady. Out-
lets were adequate for Good to Prime veal, but
poor for other grades. Spring lamb hindeaddles
and ribs moved fairly well while trading was
rather slow for stews and shoulders. Fresh
pork trade fairly active, daily upturns on
loins raising prices to their highest level
in two months.
Compared to the previous Friday: Steer
and heifer beef steady to 500 higher; veal un-
changed; spring lamb 50#-$1.00 higher; pork
loins $2.50-3.50 higher; Boston butts 4-8#
$1.00 higher; spareribs 3# down $1.00 higher.

PACIFIC COAST Supplies were mostly
moderate due to the holiday shortened work


week and with demand good, early clearances
were effected, particularly on beef and pork.
Overall demand centered on beef and fresh
pork with smoked pork slow. Compared with
the previous week: Steer and heifer beef
prices steady to weak. Cow beef mostly
steady; veal and calf little changed; spring
lamb steady; fresh pork strong to $2.00 higher,
some loins $3.00 higher in California. Smoked
hams and bacon weak to $2.00 lower over most
of ,the area; smoked picnics steady; lard
weak, instances $1.00 lower.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Sales of greasy domestic worsted wools
'in the Boston wool market were limited with
demand poor. There were occasional sales
of scoured pulled wools for woolen use at
about steady prices while noils showed a
little more action and sold steady. A few
cars of original bag wools sold in the Ter-
ritory States and a small quantity of wool
sold in Texas. Trading in the fleece wool
States was restricted.
Midweek reports from Australia indi-
cated trading at Melbourne was active with
keen competition. The Continent and Japan
were the principal operators with England
and Russia buying moderately, while the
United States and local mills were operating
sparingly. Prices at the Cape markets were
about unchanged with general competition.
Trading was slow in New Zealand and at South
American markets.
Fleece Wools Trading on spot fleece
wools was practically at a standstill.
Territory Wools An occasional car of
original bag mixed clips sold in Idaho
around 980-$1.00 clean basis delivered,
while original bag medium grade Wyoming wools
brought 34-360 grease basis to the warehouse
and was estimated to cost clean around $1.00,
delivered East. Late in the previous week
a car or two of bulk fine original bag wool
sold in Roswell, New Mexico at estimated
clean prices ranging from $1.08-1.12 de-
livered.
Texas Wools Buyers estimated good 12
months wools sold in Texas around $1.12-1.14,
delivered Bast.
Mohair Original bag mohair sold in
Texas at 71*# for adult and $1.01* for kid
hair to the warehouse.
Foreign Wools Trade in spot foreign
wools continued slow. Cabled quotations at
week's end follow with combing wools con-
verted to clean U. S. oil-combed yields and
short wools to scouring yields, in bond.
