MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW
and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Reduced marketing of all classes and
generally higher prices in the wholesale dressed
trade were factors influencing higher live
prices at most midwest terminals. The general
trend on slaughter steers was steady to 750
higher with sales at Chicago 500-$1.00 up.
Heifers were steady to 500 higher, except 500-
$1.00 higher at Chicago and Indianapolis. Cows
sold very uneven averaging about steady. Stock-
ers and feeders closed mostly steady, except
strong to 50 higher at Kansas City, but steady
to 500 lower at Sioux City and $1.00-$2.00 off
at Oklahoma City and Fort Worth. Barrows and
gilts advanced generally 250-50 over the Corn
Belt terminals and were steady to 150 higher in
the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area.Spring
slaughter lambs sold mostly 504-$1.00 higher,
old crop lambs and yearlings steady to 50O
higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Higher
dressed beef prices along with a slight re-
duction in marketing influenced upturns on
slaughter steers and heifers. At Chicago, re-
ceipts were the smallest since April and prices
advanced 504-$1.00, large share mostly 750-$1.00
up. At other markets steers closed steady to 750
higher for the most part, instances $1.00 up at
St. Paul. Slaughter heifers closed steady to
500 higher at most points with sales 504-$1.00
up at Chicago. Trends on slaughter cows were
very uneven averaging about steady. Vealers sold
steady to $1.00 lower. Slaughter steers and
heifers formed the bulk of receipts at most mid-
west markets. At Chicago, 4 percent of the
steers graded Prime, 71 percent Choice and 22
percent Good. Elsewhere Prime steers were scarce
with Good and Choice comprising the bulk in
about equal proportions.

In Chicago a few loads of high-Choice and
Prime slaughter steers brought $26.25-$29.00,
load Prime 1165# $30.50. Elsewhere average-
Choice to low-Prime sold mostly from $26.00-
$26.75, load high-Choice and Prime $27.00 in St.
Paul. Bulk Choice steers over the area cashed
at $24.75-$26.00, mixed high-Good and Choice
mostly $24.00-25.50; bulk Good $21.50-24.00;
Standard and low-Good $18.50-22.00. High-Choice
and Prime heifers brought $25.75-$26.50, few
loads mixed Choice and Prime in Chicago $26.50-
$27.75; bulk Choice heifers over the area
$24.50-25.75; Good and low-Choice $21.00-$24.50;
Standard and low-Good $18.00-$21.00. Utility
and Commercial cows brought mostly $14.50-16.50;
Canners and Cutters $12.00-$15.00.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Shipments of stocker and feeder steers and
calves at the 10 markets totaled 32,550 compared
29,400 the previous week and 25,400 the corre-


spending week one year ago. The increase was
mainly at Kansas City and some points in the
Southwest. Ample rain was received over most of
the area and this interrupted small grain
harvesting in some sections. Trading was fairly
active and prices were mostly steady, except
steady to 500 higher at Kansas City, but steady
to 500 lower at Sioux City and $1.00-$2.00 off
at Oklahoma City and Fort Worth.
Choice fleshy 710# feeder steers brought
$25.50 at Denver, elsewhere bulk Good and Choice
750-1000# feeder steers sold from $22.00-25.25;
Medium and Good $18.00-$22.50, mostly $19.00-
$22.00, and a few Common sold from $15.50-$18.00.
Good and Choice 500-750# steers cashed at $22.50-
$26.00, load Choice 515# $27.00 at Sioux City
and load Choice 500# $28.00 at Omaha. Medium
and Good 500-750# brought $18.00-$25.50;Inferior
and Common $12.00-$17.50. Good and Choice
stocker and feeder heifers cashed at $19.00-
$24.00, uniformly Choice lots very scarce,while
most Medium and Good brought $18.00-$20.00. Good
and Choice steer calves bulked at $25.00-$50.00,
a few Choice 368# $31.80 at Kansas City and load
Choice 160# mixed steer, heifer and bull calves
$55.00, and two loads mixed 243# steer and
heifer calves $355.00. Good and Choice heifer
calves brought $20.00-$26.00. A few Medium and
Good stock cows sold at $14.00-$15.50; Common
and Medium $11.50-$13.00 at Fort Worth.
HOGS Terminal markets Marketings of
hogs continued to drop off at the 12 terminals.
Receipts were 3 percent under the previous
week, and 4 percent under the corresponding week
a year earlier and were the smallest for any
non-holiday week since November 1958. Consist
of the barrow and gilt supply was little
changed from recent weeks with the bulk comprised
of mixed U. S. No. 1, 2 and 3, 200-270# offer-
ings. Consignments of 180-200# were relatively
scarce, except at eastern Corn Belt markets.
Receipts of sows increased seasonally at some
centers, this class making up 8 30 percent at
the various points. Hog prices generally ad-
vanced due to slightly decreased marketing and
a steady to higher wholesale dressed trade.
'Relatively broad shipper demand also was a
stimulating factor in the strengthening of live
prices. These interests purchased nearly 42
percent of the supply at St. Joseph. Barrows
and gilts finished the period 254-500 higher
over most of the area except 504-$1.00 higher at
Chicago, but steady to 250 lower at Sioux Falls
and on weights 240# down at Indianapolis. Sows
closed largely steady to 500 higher, but steady
to 254 lower at Indianapolis and 250 lower at
Sioux Falls.
On Friday selected No. 1 and No. 1-2, 190-
250# barrows and gilts sold over much of the
area at $17.50-$18.25, same weights and grades







at Chicago $18.504-18.75. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and
U. S. 2-3, 180-250# butchers bulked at $17.25-
$17.75, 190-240# at Omaha $17.25-$18.00, and
190-230# at Chicago $17.50418.25. U. S. 1-3,
270-600# sows sold largely at $12.75-$16.00, few
U. S. 1-2, 270-300# $16.25.
Prices on feeder pigs advanced 500 at St.
Paul, but held steady at Sioux City. Good 130-
160# feeders brought $16.00-$16.50 at St. Paul
while same weights Medium and Good brought
$16.00-$16.50 at Sioux City, Good and Choice
$16.50-$17.00.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area General rains over the area curtailed
field work and consequently producers turned
their attention to hog marketing. The week's
volume was 3 percent above the previous week and
28 percent greater than the corresponding week
last year. Early price, advances were partially
erased on late rounds under the influence of
adequate supplies and in view of the approaching
holiday weekend. Barrows and gilts closed
steady to 150 higher; sows mostly 15f higher,
but few 450# and heavier closed 355 lower. U.S.
No. 1-3 190-240# butchers on the close brought
$16.45-$17.00 with moderate volume No. 1-2
selected lots $17.00-$17.50. Sows No. 1-5 270-
400# brought $13.50-$15.50; No. 2-3 400-550#
$12.00-$14.00.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts at the 12 mar-
kets were 15 percent less than the -previous
week and 12 percent under a year ago. Slaughter
lamb prices closed higher at most centers in
response to higher dressed lamb prices and re-
duced marketing. This upturn followed two weeks
of sharply lower prices. For the week, spring
slaughter lambs were mostly 25#-$1.00 higher,
extremes $1.50 up but at St. Paul prices were
steady to 25# lower and at Denver 504-$1.00 off.

steady to 50# higher at most markets, but 50#-
$1.00 lower at Denver. Slaughter ewes were

At Fort Worth, Medium and Good spring feeder
lambs brought $11.00-$14.00; Common to Good
shorn feeder lambs and yearlings $9.00-$12.00.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area, spring slaughter lambs were steady to
strong, instances 25-500 higher; old crop lambs


and yearlings and slaughter ewes were scarce and
about steady. Interior receipts were slightly
over last week and 8 percent over a year ago.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading in the Boston wool market was
slow as the annual mill vacation period ap-
proached. Most mills will close at the end
of the week for periods ranging up to four
weeks, however, some worsted mills and
combers will continue operations during tha
period. Trading on greasy domestic worsted
wools in the Boston market was slow with
prices unchanged. There was a continued
good demand for medium fleeces. Trade on
woolen wools was slow and prices were
slightly easier. Most of the medium wools
in the fleece wool States were out of first
hands. There was increased activity in the
northwestern States as well as in Texas.
Cabled reports from Australia showed
quotations declined about 2j percent.
Japan and the Continent were the principal
operators at Brisbane. Prices in Geelong
were weak. Other foreign wool markets were
dull.
Fleece Wools Graded 60/62s good
French combing and staple fleeces sold
around $1.04-1.05 clean, while 56/58s
brought from $1.06-1.08 and 50/54s moved
at $1.04-1.05. Graded low quarter-blood
46/48s staple fleeces sold around $1.02
while medium lambs wool grading 58/56s
brought 85-87# clean basis.
Territory Wools In Montana, South of
Dillon and in Idaho bulk fine and 1/2 blood
wools with some 3/8S sold in original bags
at 45-44# grease basis, f.o.b. and were
estimated to cost clean from $1.05-1.10 de-
livered East. In Oregon and northwestern
Idaho bulk medium wools with some half-
blood sold around 45-44W# and cost from
$1.07-1.12 clean basis delivered.
Texas Wools Approximately 500,000-
400,000 pounds of 12 months wool sold in
Texas. Delaine type 12 months 70s sold at
40-41" f.o.b. and was estimated to cost
clean from $1.10-1.12 delivered Boston
with 12 months 64s and 64/70s at 45-494
and estimated at around $1.08-1.10 clean
basis, delivered.
Mohair Trading on mohair in Texas
was very slow. There were recent sales at
91-92* for adult and $1.21l-1.22i for
kid hair to the warehouse.
Foreign Wools The Australian auctions
were nearing the end of the selling season
and prices were easier. The following quotes
on combing wools were converted to clean
U. S. oil-combed yields, in bond.

Carpet Wools The spot carpet wool
trade was slow as mills prepared to close
for the vacation period. A Buenos Aires
November second clip brought 790 clean
fibers present. Greasy B. A. November
wools were offered for shipment at 78-800,
March wools around 75-74#, fleeces from
82-84., lambs wool 760 clean fibers present
and a scoured November wool at 79j#. New
Zealand crutchings, type 702 were offered
for shipment at 76#, 705 at 750 and early
shorn wool at 77f clean fibers present.
From Pakistan/India pale yellow Fazilka
wool was offered at 720 for shipment.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Fairly complete clear-
ance of fresh meats prevailed on the Eastern
Seaboard markets. Supplies were below normal
for the most part with moderate cut-back in
receipts due to approaching Holiday and desire
to clear sales coolers prior to the long non-
operative weekend. Trading was extremely un-
even throughout the week. Steer ribs and loins
were in best demand at most markets with all
cuts in good demand at Philadelphia. Carryover
of veal, calf, and spring lamb at New York,
supplemented moderate receipts and was a bearish
influence. Movement of veal and lamb was slow
at Baltimore, but moderately active at other
markets. Trading on pork cuts was active, re-
sulting in early clearances. Most pork cuts
sold higher with spareribs and loins showing
most advance.

higher; veal fully $2.00 lower; spring lamb
steady; pork loins and Boston butts 500-$1.00
higher; spareribs $2.00-2.50 higher.

fairly liberal in California with some accumu-
lations mainly on rounds and arm chucks, al-
though trading was moderately active. Cow beef
was fully adequate for a rather limited pre-
holiday demand. Trading was rather slow for
calf and with supplies above normal, clearance
was incomplete. Spring lamb continued in


liberal supply with accumulations of Choice
and Prime 45-55# at Los Angeles where trading
was slow. Fresh pork supplies were moderate
and cleared fairly well while smoked meats
continued to accumulate at Los Angeles. Steer,
heifer and cow beef sold steady to $1.00 lower;
calf and veal mostly steady, instances $2.00
lower on veal in the Pacific Northwest; spring
lamb weak to $2.00 lower; fresh pork loins and
spareribs strong to $2.00 higher; other fresh
