MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers and heifers were
steady to 50f higher at most midwest markets
with upturns on carlots of dressed beef influ-
encing the advance. Slaughter cows were steady
to 50# higher aside from steady to 50 lower
trends at Sioux City and Chicago. The season-
ally increased volume of stockers and feeders
were fully steady to strong at most points.
Barrows and gilts closed steady to 50# higher at
midwest centers for the first weekly advance in
6 weeks. However, sales were 15-250 lower in
the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area.
Spring slaughter lambs were mainly 500-$1.00
lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Receipts of
salable cattle at the 12 markets were-7 percent
larger than the previous week and were the
largest for any week since mid-July. Slaughter
steer and heifer prices responded to advances
on carcass beef. Slaughter steers were gener-
ally steady to 500 higher with Sioux City
reporting a 50-750 higher trend on average-Good
to low-Prime. High-Good to Prime steers found
the broadest outlet at most points, although
Prime steers were only steady in Chicago. Heif-
ers were steady to 500 higher, although Omaha
and Sioux City reported a steady to 500 lower
trend on Standard and Good. Cows sold steady to
250 higher at most markets but Chicago and Sioux
City reported a steady to 500 lower trend and St.
Paul was as much as 500 higher on Utility and
Commercial. Bulls sold steady to 50 lower.
Vealers were weak to $1.00 lower at St. Paul and
steady at St. Louis. Slaughter steers and heif-
ers made up the bulk of the receipts at most
terminals and the Good to average-Choice offer-
ings continued to predominate. Only scattered
loads of high-Choice and Prime steers were
offered at most terminals and Prime accounted
for only about 10 percent of the steers in
Chicago.
At Chicago high-Choice and Choice and
Prime slaughter steers realized $25.25-26.50,
3 loads Prime 1200-1400# $26.75; most average-
Choice $24.50-25.25; mixed Good and Choice
$23.50-24.25; Good $22.00-25.25. Elsewhere in
the midwest a few loads high-Choice and low-
Prime steers cashed at $25.00-25.50; bulk
Choice $25.75-25.00; high-Good and low-Choice
$23.00-23.50; bulk Good $21.00-25.50. Over the
area Choice heifers brought $22.50-24.00; high-
Choice.and Prime $24.00-24.50 and up to $25.50
at Chfcago;.Good and low-Choice heifers $20.00-
23.Q0. Utility and Commercial cows bulked at
$135.50-16.00, Canners and Cutters $11.50-14.00.

STOCER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Ma6ketings of stocker and feeder cattle and
calves expanded as August drew to a close, sup-
plies at midwest temirdnal markets being the
larpget thus far this season. There was a


moderate increase in numbers of Good and Choice
two and three-year-old steers off grass but sup-
plies of stock calves continued limited. Trad-
ing at midwest markets displayed same unevenness
but in general was moderately active at mostly
steady prices. At several markets mild strength
was noted on stockers and at Sioux City yearlings
and stock calves sold strong to 50 higher. Mean-
while, at Omaha prices were steady to weak.
Several southwestern markets were steady to 500
lower while at Denver a sharp upturn in slaugh-
ter cattle prices was a factor influencing a
moderately stronger trend on fleshy feeder steers.
Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers
brought $21.00-23.75, few Choice 800# $24.00.
Three loads Good 1110# Montana steers sold at
$21.00 and a five-car string of Good 1197# three-
year-old feeders cashed at $20.00. Medium and
low-Good feeders ranged $18.00-21.00. Choice
600# stock steers brought $26.00, majority Good
and Choice yearling stockers $22.00-25.50,
Medium and low-Good $18.00-22.50. Several loads
Choice 500# heifers brought $25.00, other Good
and Choice stocker and feeder heifers $19.50-
24.25, including Choice fleshy 850# at $21.75.
Few sales Choice 500-550# stock steer calves
$28.00-28.75, bulk Good and Choice steer calves
$22.00-27.00. Good and Choice heifer calves
ranged $20.00-26.00, few Choice 245# $26.75.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog marketing
were sharply curtailed after midweek and prices
reacted with late advances more than offsetting
early declines. Barrows and gilts closed steady
to 500 higher, this the first weekly advance in
6 weeks. Sows sold steady to 500 higher at most
western Corn Belt centers, but steady to 50f
lower in the eastern part of the area. Mixed
No. 1-5 190-250# barrows and gilts predominated
in the supply with only a moderate number weigh-
ing over 250#.
On Friday U. S. 1-2, and mixed U. S. 1-5,
190-250# barrows and gilts sold mainly at $16.00-
16.50, with No. 1, 210-220# up to $16.75 at
Indianapolis. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and 2-5, 180-
280# brought $15.50-16.25, largely $15.75-16.25.
U. S. 1-5, 270-600# sows bulked at $12.75-15.00.
Feeder pig prices declined 25-50f at Sioux
City and were 50f off at St. Paul. Mostly Good
140-170# feeder pigs sold at $14.50-15.25 at
Sioux City with mostly Good 150-160# offerings
at St. Paul $14.00-14.50.

HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Reduced marketing Wednesday and succeed-
ing days resulted in around 10 percent less re-
ceipts than the previous week and about 17 per-
cent less than the corresponding week last year.
Curtailed supplies stimulated demand and price
advances were made on late rounds, but upturns
were not sufficient to erase earlier declines.
Closing prices compared with the previous Friday

iere 15-250 lower on butchers with sows steady
to 250 lower. Sows comprised about 13 percent
of total receipts. At the close mixed U. S. 1-5
200-240# butchers sold at $14.50-15.25 with a
moderate volume No. 1 and 2 at $15.25-15.65.
No. 1-3 270-400# sows brought $12.75-14.75, 400-
550# $10.85-15.25.

SHEEP AND IAMBS The 12 market sheep and
lamb receipts were 8 percent larger than a week
earlier, but little different than a year ago.
Slaughter lambs sold under pressure on most
sessions. Price downturns for dressed lamb in
combination with increased slaughter lamb market-
ings were bearish factors contributing to lower
prices at terminals. For the week, spring
slaughter lambs were unevenly steady to mostly
50-$1.00 lower, instances $1.50 off. Slaughter
ewes were mainly steady. Moderate numbers of
spring feeder lambs were steady at most markets,
but steady to 250 lower at Denver.
Choice and Prime 85-110# spring slaughter
lambs including limited numbers of shorn spring
lambs with No. 1 and 2 pelts sold from $18.00-
19.50 on the close with a few lots Prime $20.00-
21.00, the latter price at Chicago; Good and
Choice $16.00-18.00, few $18.50-19.00; Utility
and Good $12.50-16.50. Limited numbers of Good
and Choice 100-120# shorn slaughter yearlings
with No. 1 and fall shorn pelts brought $15.00-
15.00, 2 loads Choice 100-104# $15.50-16.50.
Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes $2.00-4.00,
few $4.50-5.00.
Good and Choice 50-85# spring feeder lambs
brought $15.00-16.50 including 70-85# lambs
$15.75-16.25 at Dewver; Choice 68-75# range
Colorado feeders $16.50-16.65 at Denver; Choice
65# western feeders $17.25-18.00 at Sioux City.
Medium and Good.feeders turned at $13.00-15.50.
Few Medium and Good short term to solid mouth
breeding ewes $4.50-8.50 per head; load four-
year-old breeding ewes $12.50 each at Kansas
City.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area, receipts were around 15 percent above
both a week and a year ago. Shorn spring slaugh-
ter lambs comprised around 15 percent of re-
ceipts. Slaughter lamb demand was only fair dur-
ing the week as expanded marketing coupled with
mainly lower dressed lamb prices were bearish
factors influencing price downturns in the
Interior area. For the week, spring slaughter
lambs and slaughter ewes were weak to 500 lower.
Choice 80-105# spring slaughter lambs delivered
to packing plants closed at $17.00-17.50 with
Choice and Prime to $18.00; Good and low-Choice
$15.50-17.00; Utility and Good $14.00-15.50.
Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes moved at
$2.00-4.00.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Sales of greasy domestic worsted wools
amounted to approximately five cars in the Boston
market as fine and half-blood wools sold at
slightly higher prices. Demand was poor for med-
ium grades. Trading on scoured wools for woolen
use was slow and prices were slightly easier in
some instances. Noils were slow to move but
prices were firm. Range sales in the territory
States were limited and little was done in the
fleece wool States. There were sales of 12
months wools in Texas.
Cabled reports from Australia showed quo-
tations advancing about two pence. There was
a good selection offered with the Continent,
Japan, England and American interests operating.
The New Zealand markets were quiet as offerings
of carpet type wools were unchanged to two pence
lower. Early reports from the opening sales in
the Cape showed quotations on combing wools about
15 percent lower than the May close due princi-
pally to tender and short wools caused by drought
conditions since last shearing in South Africa.
New clip wools out of Uruguay were offered
on a basis equivalent to Australian quotes.
Trading was slow in Buenos Aires with a few
offerings of carpet type wools.
Fleece Wools Graded 64s good French comb-
ing and staple fleeces brought from $1.10-1.12
clean basis while graded 56/58s baby combing
fleeces sold at $1.00.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good French
combing and saple wools sold from $1.135-1.15
clean basis, while graded 60/62s staple wools
brought $1.08-1.10 and 56/58s baby combing
wools moved around $1.02-1.05 clean basis.
Texas Wools Average 12 months wools sold
in Texas at $1.10-1.12 clean basis delivered
Boston while best 12 months sold from $1.12-
1.14 and Delaine type 12 months Texas wool was
purchased around $1.15 clean basis, delivered
Boston.
Foreign Wools Sales of spot foreign
wools were slow. Combing wools converted to
clean U. S. oil-combed yields and short wools
to scouring yields, in bond as follows:

was slow at about unchanged prices. Greasy
Buenos Aires November second clip carpet wools
were quoted around 76-770, March wools 72-735
and fleeces around 780 clean fibers present
for shipment. Good New Zealand carpet crutch-
ings around 700, early shorn wools 75f and
fleeces around 180. White Montgomery, India
wools at 760 and yellow Montgomery at 67i
clean fibers present, all for shipment. Ap-
proximately 5,330 bales, including 100 bales
of Afghanistan carpet wools, will be offered
at auction on September 7 at Liverpool,
England.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Trading was moderately
active for most fresh meats with early slowness
in instances followed by broad demand on closing
sessions. Hot, humid weather in some sectors
hampered early activity at both wholesale and
retail levels. Supplies of beef were slightly
below normal, and other classes moderate to near
normal. Clearance of all meats was generally
complete. Compared with the previous week's
close: Steer beef steady to $1.00 lower, mostly
50#-$1.00 off except at Washington where sales
were steady to 50# higher; cow beef 50#-$1.00
lower at Philadelphia, otherwise steady. Veal
sold steady to $2.00 higher except at New York,
where prices for both veal and calf were steady
to weak. Spring lamb closed steady to $1.00
higher at Philadelphia, weak to $2.00 lower at
New York, the bulk 500-$1.00 off and the trend
at Washington was steady to 50# lower, with
other markets steady. Pork loins sold steady to
$2.00 lower with some decline at all markets
except Philadelphia, other pork cuts weak to
$4.00 lower, bulk off $1.00-2.00. Softness
permeated kosher dressed meats with kosher dressed
steer forequarters steady to $2.00 lower, mostly
$1.00-2.00 off; kosher veal foresaddles $1.00-
4.00 lower and kosher spring lamb steady to
mostly $1.00 lower.

CHICAGO Supplies of beef, spring lamb and
fresh pork were normal. Beef prices advanced on
early sessions in moderately active trading with
higher live prices contributing strength. Part
of the upturn was erased, however, when movement
of primal cuts slowed. Arm and squarecut chucks,
rounds and ribs had adequate outlets through
Tuesday, but chucks were slow from midweek on.
Demand was poor for beef loins on each session.
Good to Prime veal met a fair demand at fully
steady prices. A moderately active lamb trade
at the outlet slowed, limited showing weights
over 55# excepted. Fresh pork trade generally
was slow. Compared to the previous Friday:
Steer and heifer beef steady to $1.00 higher,
mostly steady to 50# higher; veal fully steady;
spring lamb steady to $1.00 lower; pork loins
steady to 50# higher; Boston butts steady to
$1.00 lower; spareribs steady.

PACIFIC COAST Good and Choice steer and
heifer beef supplies were ample to excessive for
a limited pre-holiday demand. Cow beef supply
was moderate but trading generally slow with de-
mand poor. Veal and calf receipts seasonally
increased and generally plentiful with an
abundance in San Francisco. Offering of spring
lamb somewhat liberal. Fresh pork trade dull
despite moderate supply. Smoked pork continued
