MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers and heifers were moder-
ately active at most midwest terminals with
prices generally steady to 25# higher, instances
50# up, except at Chicago where steers closed
unevenly 25-41.00 lower. Slaughter cows sold
steady to 500 lower with sales at Chicago and
Omaha 50#-$1.00 off. Stockers and feeders were
active and steady to 50# higher. Barrows and
gilts closed 250-750 higher despite increased
supplies. Slaughter lambs sold unevenly weak to
$1.00 lower as lower dressed prices offset any
effect that reduced numbers may have had.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Prices on
slaughter steers and heifers showed a moderate
advance for the second week at most midwest
terminals. Slaughter steers and heifers were
generally steady to 250 higher, instances 50#
up. The major exception was Chicago where
prices on steers turned sharply lower Wednesday
of the week under review and closed 254-$1.00
lower with the greatest decline on 1300-1600#.
An over-abundance of Choice and Prime steers
1300-1600# together with very liberal Wednesday
receipts prompted the decline at Chicago. Price
advances at other terminals were influenced by
a steady to $1.00 higher trend on carcass beef.
Cows sold steady to 50# lower with sales at Chi-
cago and Omaha 500-$1.00 off, reflecting de-
clines in the carcass trade. Bulls were steady
to 500 higher. Vealers were steady to $2.00
lower at St. Paul and steady to $1.00 higher at
St. Louis National Stockyards. Receipts at the
12 markets were little changed from the previous
week or the corresponding week last year.
Slaughter steers continued to predominate in the
supplies at most points with the bulk Good and
Choice. However, several major terminals re-
ceived a larger number of mixed Choice and Prime
loads and in Chicago the percentage Prime in the
steer supply advanced from 17 to 20 percent.
Load Prime 1240# slaughter steers brought
$27.25 in Chicago with bulk of the Choice and
Prime steers 1000-1300# $23.75-27.00, largely
$23.75-26.50 late in the week. At other points,
loadlots mixed Choice and Prime steers brought
$25.00-26.00 with the bulk of the high-Good and
Choice 900-1500# from $23.25-25.50. At several
terminals average to high-Choice 1500-1675#
steers sold from $235.00-24.50. Bulk Good steers
sold at $21.50-235.75; Standard and low-Good
$18.00-21.50. Loadlots of high-Choice and mixed
Choice and Prime slaughter heifers brought
$23.75-24.75 with a few $25.00 in Chicago. Bulk
of the Choice heifers sold at $22.50-24.00 with
Good from $20.25-22.75. Utility and Commercial
cows bulked at $12.75-15.50 with Canners and
Cutters from $10.50-15.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Price trends were higher on stocker and feeder
cattle and calves for the fifth consecutive week.


Marketings of stocker and feeder cattle were a
little below the liberal numbers of recent past
weeks. However, the volume of stock calves was
the largest so far this fall. Good to high-Choice
offerings continued to make up a large percentage
of supplies A good demand existed for most
classes and grades and in brisk trading prices
ruled steady to 50# higher at midwest terminals.
Good wheat pasture conditions in some areas of
the west and southwest have tended to increase
competition for stock cattle under 650# and in
the midwest demand was noticeably expanded for
700-800# steers to clean up stalk fields. At the
same time abundant supplies of grain feeds have
prompted increased interest in 800-l000# cattle.
However, many feeder buyers apparently are still
reluctant to take on steers over 1000# unless at
prices materially below those paid for lighter-
weights of the same grade. This due at least in
part to the continued price discrimination
against slaughter steers 1500# and heavier.
Bulk Good and Choice 550-750# yearling
steers sold from $22.50-26.00 and at Omaha 2
loads Choice 595 and 766# brought $26.50-27.00.
Medium and low-Good stock steers ranged from
$18.00-22.50. Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder
steers sold chiefly from $21.00-24.25, few loads
Choice and Fancy 800-900? $24.50-25.25, one load
827# $25.75. Good and Choice yearling heifers
brought $21.00-235.25. A few loads Choice and
Fancy steer calves brought $51.00-32.25; bulk
Good and Choice steer calves $24.00-30.50. Good
and Choice heifer calves bulked at $21.00-27.00,
several loads Choice and Fancy $27.50-50.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog receipts at
the 12 markets were 11 percent larger than the
previous week, but fell 24 percent short of the
corresponding week a year ago. Generally mixed
U. S. No. 1-3, 180-250# barrows and gilts made up
the bulk of the offerings, however, a sizeable
percentage of the volume at western Corn Belt
centers weighed 220-240#. Sows made up 7-12 per-
cent at the various points. Despite an increase
in receipts demand was dependable most of the
week. Higher prices on pork loins were a factor
prompting the upturn in live prices. Order buy-
ers at some points were not as aggressive as in
recent weeks, but broad packer demand generally
was the rule. Although some consignments were
sorted for weight and grade, most barrows and
gilts were offered and sold in mixed lots. Price
spreads on barrows and gilts were quite narrow
with the bulk selling within a 25-500 range.
Barrows and gilts closed largely 25-500 higher
with sales 50-75# higher at Chicago and 750 up
at St. Paul. Sows closed steady to 750 higher,
except 25* lower at St. Louis.
U. S. No. 1 and 1-2, and at some points
uniform in weight U. S. 1-3, 190-240# barrows
and gilts bulked late at r17.35-18.00, shipment
U. S. 1, 217// at Indianapolis reaching $18.25.






851


Mixed U. S. 1-5 and 2-3 190-260# closed at
$17.00-17.50, with same grades 1l80-250C at Indian-
apolis $17.50-17.85. U. S. 1-3, 270-60Q# sows
sold at $15.00-16.50, largely $13.50-16.00.
Feeder pigs closed strong to 50# higher at
St. Paul and fully steady at Sioux City. Good
and Choice 150-160# at St. Paul brought $16.00-
16.50, comparable grades and weights at Sioux
City $15.50-16.25, few Choice $16.50.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Fairly liberal receipts on Monday and late
in the week pushed the weeks supply to around
11 percent larger than the previous week, but
receipts were still fully 6 percent less than
the corresponding week last year. Prices
fluctuated considerably as early declines of
about 50f were more than recovered by Thursday,
but Friday's losses left little strength for the
week. Closing sales were steady to 10f higher
on 180-220# butchers with heavier weights strong
to 25# higher. Sows comprised q percent of re-*
ceipts and sold 10-25f higher. Mixed U. S. No.
1-5 200-240# barrows and gilts closed the week
at $16.00-16.75 with limited volume No. 1 and 2
lots $16.50-17.15. No. 1-3 270-400# sows sold
at $14.10-16.00; 400-55Q0# $12.60-14.75.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets were 25 percent less
than the previous week and 13 percent under the
comparable period last year. Despite the sharp
reduction in marketing at terminals, slaughter
lamb prices worked lower with price downturns
on dressed lamb a principal factor affecting the
live trade. Slaughter lambs, predominately
wooled, comprised bulk of the receipts. Slaugh-'
ter lambs were weak to $1.00 lower with sales at
Kansas City $1.50 off. Slaughter ewes were
steady to 500 higher. Feeder lambs were uneven,
largely steady to 50 higher with the full up-
turn at Denver, however, feeders were 500
lower at Sioux Falls and St. Joseph.
On late rounds, Choice and Prime 85-110#
wooled slaughter lambs, some to 117#, sold from
$16.50-18.00, up to $18.50 in Denver. Good and
Choice brought $15.00-17.50 largely $15.50-16.50,
Utility and Good $12.00-15.50. Choice and Prime
95-112# shorn slaughter lambs, most with No. 1
pelts, $16.25-17.50 late in the week with Good
and Choice $15.00-16.50 and sparingly to $17.00.
Cull to Choice slaughter ewes moved at $2.50-
5.25.
Good and Choice 61-82# western feeder lambs
brought $15.00-16.50; Choice 60-78# $16.50-
17.25; Good and Choice native feeders $14.00-
16.00; Medium and Good $12.00-15.50. On a per-
head basis Good and Choice yearling breeding
ewes $15.00-16.00; solid mouth breeders $6.00-
12.00; short term $5.50-7.00.
Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area were 7 percent
less than a week earlier, but 26 percent more
than the same period last year. Slaughter lambs
were 50# lower, instances $1.00 off; slaughter
ewes steady. On Friday, Choice with some Prime


80-105# wooled and shorn slaughter lambs, most
shorn lambs with No. 1 pelts, sold from $16.00-
16,75 delivered to packing plants with a large
share at $16.50. Few Choice and Prime brought
$17.00-17.50 in a couple of sections. Choice
and Prime 105-115# slaughter lambs along with
Good and Choice 80-110# offerings sold from
$15.00-16.50; Utility and Good $12.00-14.50.
Cull to Choice slaughter ewes, most with fall
shorn to full wooled pelts, $2.00-4.00.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS TRAN CARLOT MBAT TRAIE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Trading on the close at
most eastern Seaboard markets waa dull, however,
clearance vas generally complete, except for
small carryover of beef hindquarters at most
points and a small volume of veal, calf and lamb
was unsold at Neow Tork. Demand for pork was
fairly good throughout the week. Supplies of
all fresh meats were near normal.
Steer beef closed steady to $1.00 higher,
except Philadelphia, weak to $1.00 lower; cow
beef mostly steady to weak, with Philadelphia
$1.00-2.00 off; veal was very uneven, strong to
$3.00 higher at Philadelphia, steady to $1.00
higher at Washington. However, prices were
steady to weak at Baltimore and both veal and
calf sold weak to $1.00 lower at New Tork. Lamb
sold steady to $1.00 lower, instances $2.00 off.
Pork loina were steady to mostly $1.00 higher,
instances $2.00 up at Philadelphia. Other pork
cuts mostly steady, except $1.00 off at Phila-
delphia. Demand was fair for kosher steer beetf
and small lots of Choice and Prime veal, how-
ever, Standard and Good veal along with calf and
lamb met poor demand. Prices for kosher steer
forequarters were mainly steady to 500 lower;
lamb foresaddles $1.00-2.00 lower. Choice and
Prime veal and calf foresaddles closed steady to
$1.00 higher, Standard and Good steady.

CHICAGO All clasaea of fresh meat were in
normal volume. Most beef graded high-Good and
Choice. Outlet was broad for chucks and moderate
for carcass beef, rounds, ribs and loins. Most
beef cuts closed steady with early upturns on
chucks erased late. A fairly large percentage
of the loins were absorbed in the form of fabri-
cated cuts. Trading on veal was rather slow.
Trading for lamb was fairly active. Lamb legs,
etews and shoulders found good outlet, while
demand was rather poor for center cuts, particu-
larly ribs. Trading was generally slow on fresh
pork, but loins were fairly active at the close.
Steer and heifer beef closed steady to 50#
higher; veal unchanged; lamb steady to 50# lower;
pork loins steady to 50# lower; Boston butts
$1.00-1.50 lower; spareribs steady.

PACIFIC COAST Supplies of steer and cow
beef were liberal and more than adequate for the
prevailing demand. The moderate volume of calf
was about in balance with the outlet. Lamb
supplies were normal and rather burdensome for
a limited demand. Trading on smoked and fresh
pork was slow and some loins were carried over.
Steer and heifer beef sold steady in Cali-
fornia and weak to $1.00 lower in the Pacific
northwest; cow beef steady; calf and veal uneven,


steady to $2.00 lower in California but strong
to $1.00 higher in the northwest; lamb unchanged;
pork loins weak to $2.00 lower; other fresh pork
cuts steady to $1.00 higher; smoked pork steady
to $1.00 higher.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading for greasy domestic worsted
wools in the Boston market was slow as most
interests were attending sealed bid sales
in the western States. Prices were steady
to strong. Trading was fairly active for
woolen wools and noils at firm prices.
Supply of good scoured pulled wools was
scarce. Topmakers were buying up greasy
pulled combing length wools. Approximately
500,000# of bulk fine wools sold at the
sealed bid sale held in Stockton, Cali-
fornia at steady to firm prices. Trading
in Texas was rather slow with few sales of
12 months wools. Trading in-the fleece
wool States was slow.
Midweek cables from Australia showed
prices advancing three to four pence with
good demand from all sections. The New
Zealand market opened on a firm basis.
Continental interests dominated with
generally good demand from other countries.
The South African markets advanced about
two pence with the United Kingdom, Italy
and the Continent the principal operators.
The South American markets were dull with
topmakers buying occasional small lots of
Montevideo wools. Occasional Buenos Aires
carpet type wools were sold to the United
States.
Fleece Wools Limited sales of med-
ium grade fleece lambs wool sold from 76-
780 clean basis.
Territory Wools At the sealed bid
sale at Stockton, California graded 64s
French combing wool was estimated at $1.05
and graded 64s good French combing and
staple wool $1.10-1.12. Bulk half-blood
shorn lambs wool sold at 41.80 grease bass
and was estimated to cost clean from 76-78#
delivered Boston. Original bag bulk fine
wools were estimated to cost around $1.07
clean basis, delivered. Showing of wools
for sealed bids will be held at Des Moines
on November 14 and Minneapolis November 15
with a combined sale on November 16 at
Minneapolis.
Texas Wools Occasional lots of aver-
age 12 months good French combing and staple
wool in original bags sold for $1.15-1.15
clean basis, delivered Boston with 12 months
delaine type wools selling around $1.15-
1.18.
Mohair Trading for mohair in Texas
was slow with few lots sold at 75# for
adult and $1.08! for kid hair to the ware-
house.
Foreign Wools Cabled quotations from
all Dominion markets closed strong. Quotes
follow with combing wools converted to clean
U. S. oil-combed yields and short wools to
