MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price trends on slaughter heifers were very
uneven over the Corn Belt. Steer prices were
steady to 250 higher at most terminals with
instances 500 up. However, Standard to average-
Good steers closed steady to 250 lower at Sioux
City and Kansas City, and Choice and Prime offer-
ings weighing above 1200# 25-750 lower at
Chicago under the influence of liberal mid-week
marketing. Slaughter heifers sold steady to
500 higher aside from the steady to 500 lower
trends at Omaha and Chicago. Slaughter cows
closed steady to 500 lower. Stocker and feeder
cattle and calves sold steady to 500 higher.
Declines on dressed pork influenced 25#-$1.00
lower trends on barrows and gilts over most of
the midwest. Slaughter lambs closed steady to
500 higher at most markets.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
e
steers retained the rather shar aavnce of the
previous week for the most part. Cattle re-
ceipts at the 12 markets were 3 percent below
the previous week and carcass beef prices ranged
from steady to Z1.00 higher at major wholesale
centers. However, the Columbus Day holiday and
two non-koshering Jewish holidays the latter
part of week were bearish influences. Prices
ranged from steady to 250 higher, instances 50O
up at the majority of the midwest markets. How-
ever, at Chicago liberal receipts at midweek
influenced a 25-750 decline on Choice and Prime
1200-1530# steers and at Sioux City and Kansas
City Standard to average Good steers closed
steady to 250 lower. Slaughter heifers sold
steady to 500 higher, except steady to 250 lower
at Chicago and steady to 500 off at Omaha. Cow
prices were steady to 500 lower. Bulls sold
steady to $1.00 lower; vealers were steady at St.
Paul and St. Louis. Slaughter steers and heifers
continued to make up the bulk of the receipts at
most terminals although cow numbers increased at
some points. Good and Choice offerings predomi-
nated in the steer and heifer supply with high-
Choice and Prime in small supply. However, the
percentage Prime in the steer run at Chicago
Wednesday at 24 percent was the largest of the
year.
Several loads of mostly Prime 1175-1350#
steers brought 2?6.75-27.00 at Chicago where the
bulk of the Choice and Prime steers sold from
$23.75-26.50 including many loads of Choice and
mixed Choice and Prime 1350-153C0# weights from
$23.75-25.00. At other points a few loads of
high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime steers
sold at $24.50-26.00 with high-Choice 1535#
steers at $23.25 in Omaha. Bulk of the high-
Good and Choice steers sold from $23.00-25.00
with a few high-Choice 1050# to $25.75 at
Chicago. Good steers brought $21.50-22.75 and
most Standard and low-Good cashed from $18.00-
21.50. High-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime


slaughter heifers brought $25.75-25.00 while most
Choice sold at $22.00-24.00; Good and low-Choice
$20.50-22.50. Utility and Coruercial cows bulked
$13.00-15.50, Canners and Cutters $10.00-15.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
The movement of stocker and feeder cattle and
calves from range and pasture to market continued
large. Shipments of steers and calves from the
ten markets totaled about73,000 compared to 64,000
the previous week and 76,000 a year ago. The
movement of cattle from the southwest decreased
somewhat but this was offset by a seasonal
increase in numbers from western and northwestern
mountain areas. Overall quality continued at a
relatively high level with a large proportion of
the supplies being made up of average Good to
high-Choice offerings. Yearling and two-year-old
steers predominated but numbers of calves, while
not overly liberal, showed some increase over
earlier weeks this season. Heifer supplies gener-
ally were very moderate. Although receipts in-
cluded many cattle weighing under 650#, not many
were in really thin flesh, reflecting the good
grazing conditions this season. Favorable early
fall weather conditions and abundant supplies of
all types of feeds encouraged a widespread demand
and there was a large attendance of buyers at most
midwest markets. Trading generally was fairly
active at prices unevenly steady to 500 higher.
Scattered shipments of Choice 600-65C# stock
steers brought $26.00-26.50 and at St. Paul 2
loads Choice 725# brought $26.00 and a package of
Choice and Fancy 600Q at that market reached
$27.00. Meanwhile, majority Good and Choice 525-
700C stock steers sold from $22.00-25.50, Medium
and low-Good $18.00-22.00. Several loads, Choice,
partly fattened, 930-1025, feeders brought $24.00-
24.50 and a few loads of Choice 800-825# steers
off grass sold from t25.75-24.00. However, bulk
Good and Choice 800-1050# steers sold from $20.50-
23.50 with very few over 900# above $23.00. Medium
to low-Good feeders cashed from $17.50-20.50. Good
and Choice yearling heifers brought $19.00-23.00,
few $23.35. Few loads Choice stock steer calves
brought $29.00-30.00 and one load Choice and Fancy
305# Wyoming calves reached $32.00 at Omaha.
Other Good and Choice steer calves sold chiefly
from $23.00-28.00. Good and Choice heifer calves
realized $20.00-26.00, few 250# $28.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at the 12
terminals increased 9 percent over the previous
week and were the largest for any week since mid-
June. Despite the increase, supplies were 15 per-
cent below the corresponding week last year.There
was the normal seasonal increase in barrows and
gilts weighing 250# and heavier, but mixed U. S.
1-3, and No. 2-3, 190-250# barrows and gilts con-
tinued to predominate throughout the area. At
most markets the supply under 190# and over 270#








was too small to provide a basis for quotations.
Prices followed an irregular course throughout
the week. Upturns were general during the first
half of the period. However, under the influence
of increased receipts and lower dressed pork
prices,demand narrowed considerably late Wednes-
day and through the balance of the week. As a
result the early advance was more than erased
and closing prices on barrows and gilts were
generally 25#-$1.00 lower for the period. Sows
were steady to 250 lower over much of the area
but steady to 500 higher at Indianapolis and
steady to 250 higher at Kansas City.
At the close of the week U. S. 1, and U. S.
1-2, and at some points uniform U. S. 1-3, 190-
250# barrows and gilts sold at $17.50-18.35;
mixed U. S. 1-3, and No. 2-3, 180-280# $16.75-
18.25, largely $17.00-17.75. U. S. 1-3, 270-550#
sows brought $13.25-16.50, most sales $13.50-
16.00.
Prices on feeder pigs were strong to 50O
higher at Sioux City and St. Paul. Good and
Choice 130-170# feeder pigs sold late at $16.00-
16.50 at both markets with a few Choice $16.75
at Sioux City and Medium and Good at that market
$15.50.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows and
gilts was $1.08 perowt.based on wholesale carlot
prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago October 6
to October 12, 1960,inclusive.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts were around 9 percent larger
than the previous week, but about 12 percent
less than the corresponding week last year. De-
mand was generally good and prices fully steady
through Wednesday, but demand was rather poor
late under the influence of fairly liberal sup-
plies and rather sharp price declines were
recorded. Closing prices were 50-600 lower on
both butchers and sows. Late sales of mixed
No.1-3 200-240. butchers were at $16.25-17.00
with some No. 1 and 2 selected lots $17.00-17.50;
No. 1-3 270-400r sows sold at $14.25-16.15, 400-
55,0 $12.60-14.75.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets were little changed from
a week earlier but 12 percent under a year ago.
Wooled slaughter lambs predominated in the re-
ceipts although shorn slaughter lambs and feeder
lambs continued to show a seasonal increase.
Higher prices for dressed lamb at wholesale cen-
ters prompted a fairly good demand for slaugh-
ter lambs and prices closed strong to fully 500
higher, instances $1.00 up. Slaughter ewes were
steady. Feeder lamb prices were uneven, largely
steady to 500 lower.
Choice and Prime 82-1134 wooled slaughter
lambs sold from $17.50-18.50 late in the period
and to $19.00 at a few markets; Good and Choice
$16.00-18.00, large share $16.50-17.50; Utility
and Good $12.50-16.50. Choice and Prime 85-115
shorn slaughter lambs with No. 1-2 pelts brought
$17.50-18.00, instances $18.50; load Choice and


Prime 110# lambs with No. 1 pelts $19.25 at
Chicago. Good and Choice shorn slaughter lambs
$16.00-17.50, some sales $18.00. Cull to Choice
slaughter ewes ranged from $2.00-5.25.
Most Good and Choice 62-90# western feeder
lambs brought $15.50-16.75; Choice 49-75# $16.50-
17.00; load high-Choice 57# western feeders
$17.75 at Omaha. Good and Choice native feeders
13.50-15.50. Good and Choice solid mouth breed-
ing ewes $9.00-12.00 per head; part deck Good
and Choice two-year-old breeding ewes $17.00 each
at Sioux City.
Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area were 29 percent over
a week earlier but little changed from last year.
Slaughter lambs were 50#-$1.00 higher than the
previous week's close. Slaughter ewes were
steady. Seasonally increased marketing of shorn
lambs comprised around 40 percent of the lamb
supply. On Friday, Choice and Prime 80-105#
wooled and shorn slaughter lambs with No. 1 and 2
pelts sold from $17.00-18.00; Good and Choice
sold at $15.50-17.25; Cull to Choice slaughter
ewes $2.00-4.00.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Supplies of rail stocks
were mostly normal and receipts of pork moderate
to normal. Demand for fresh meats was generally
good this week, although at some markets move-
ment was less prompt than during the week pro-
vious. Slowness, notably applied to activity
for beef hinds and ribe when compared to extreme-
ly broad outlet for chucks. Clearance was fairly
complete in all divisions. However, there were
accumulations of steer hinds and ribs at Phila-
delphia and some ribs at New York proved trouble-
some late and clearance was accomplished mostly
through price concessions.
Steer beef sold steady to $1.00 higher with
advances of 500-$1.00 at New York; cow beef
steady to $1.00 lower; veal and calf mostly
steady; lamb steady to $2.00 lower at all markets
except New York where prices advanced 500-$1.00;
pork loins steady to $2.00 higher, with some up-
turn at all points except New York, where sales
were mainly on a steady basis; other pork cuts
steady to $2.00 higher except a steady to $1.00
lower trend at Washington. Trading was generally
moderately active for kosher dressed meats.
Prices for kosher steer forequarters were strong
to $1.50 up, bulk 500-$1.00 higher. Kosher lamb
foresaddles sold strong to $2.00 higher while a
steady trend prevailed for kosher veal and calf
forces.

CHICAGO Normal supplies of beef, lamb and
fresh pork along with moderate veal offerings
were adequate for demand. Good and Choice beef
offered most liberally. Carcass beef trading was
only moderately active. Chucks and rounds found
broad outlet at 504-$1.00 higher prices while the
price pattern on ribs and loins was weak to lower
in a generally dull trade. The volume of Choice
and Prime veal was somewhat increased but these
were still the first to clear in a moderate trade,
while more abundant offerings of Utility to Good
veal sold in a slow trade. Lamb trading was

hindquarters were slow.' Veal and calf was in
moderate supply with demand fair. Fresh pork
supply was moderate with supplies in San Fran-


cisco short of actual noeels. Smoked pork was in
ample supply for a continued limited demand.

weak to $1.00 lower except at Los Angeles where
prices ruled strong to $1.00 higher. Veal and
calf was mostly steady while lamb sold steady at
California points but weak to $1.00 lower in the
Northwest. Fresh pork was steady to $2.00
higher, with most advance in San Francisco.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic worsted wools
in the Boston market continued slow but with
more interest in graded 50/54s fleeces. Prices
were slightly lower. Movement of woolen wools
and noils was extremely slow. A fair volume of
greasy quarter-blood sold in the fleece wool
States and occasional lots of original bag 12
months good French combing and staple sold in
Texas. Sales in the territory States were very
limited.
Midweek cables from Australia showed eastern
Europe, Japan and England participating. There
was a poor selection of mostly B and C fault
fleeces offered at Sydney. The Melbourne market
showed a good selection of topmaking merino comie-
backs and crossbreds offered with the Continent,
Japan and England dominating with prices holding
steady to firm. Prices at South African markets
held firm with France the principal operator.
There were occasional offerings of carpet type
wools from New Zealand at about steady prices.
The South American markets continued dull, but
with occasional sales of coarse wools sold for
shipment to the United States.
Fleece Wools There was more activity in
medium fleece wools as graded 50/54s sold around
$1.03-1.04 clean basis. Dealers estimated
graded 56/58s fleece wool from $1.02-1.07.
Territory Wools Trading remained slow.
Texas Wools Original bag average style
12 months good French combing and staple wools
held steady around $1.12 and choice delaine type
wools brought from $1.15-1.18 clean basis, de-
livered Boston. Approximately one million pounds
of fall wool will be offered at sealed bid sale
at Del Rio on October 18 and 19.
Mohair Turnover of mohair was very dull
with occasional small lots of original bag woois
at 76 for adult and $l.11l for kid hair to the
warehouse; straight kid hair $1.50-1.60 to the
warehouse.
Foreign Wools Trade in spot foreign wools
slow. Cabled quotations at week's end follow
with combing wools converted to clean U. S.
oil-combed yields and short wools to scouring
yields, in bond.

CATTLE AND CALVES ON FEED OCTOBER 1, 1960

On October 1, 1960, a total of 5,075,000 head of cattle and calves were on feed for market in the
26 major feeding States, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This was an increase of 1 percent from
the 5,001,000 head on feed in these States October 1, 1959, but was down seasonally from the 5,590,000
head on feed July 1 this year. The July 1 to October 1 decline for the 21 States with comparable 1959
data was 10 percent this year compared with 7 percent in 1959.
Larger numbers were on feed October 1 in 11 States, 1 State was unchanged and 14 States were down.
Most of the increases in cattle feeding from a year earlier occurred in Western States.
The number of cattle and calves on feed October 1 in the 12 North Central States totaled 3,069,000
head--5 percent below the 3,215,000 head on October 1 last year. Iowa,- the leading State, was unchanged
from last year but Nebraska, the second ranking State in this region, was down 10 percent. Kansas,
North Dakota, and Minnesota show the only gains in cattle feeding in the North Central States.
In the 11 Western States there were 1,703,000 head of cattle and calves on feed October 1 compared
with 1,510,000 head last October--a 13 percent increase. California, which accounts for 45 percent of
the cattle on feed in these Western States, had 20 percent more on feed and Colorado, the second ranking
Western State, was up 18 percent. Idaho, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and Oregon had fewer cattle on feed
than a year earlier.
Cattle and calves placed on feed in the 21 States totaled 2,598,000 head in the July-September
quarter, 2 percent less than in the same period of 1959. Shipments of stocker and feeder cattle into 8
Corn Belt States (for which data are available) during July and August this year were 17 percent below
the same two months in 1959.
Fed cattle marketing during July, August, and September in the 21 States amounted to 3,135,000
head, 3 percent above the same period a year earlier. In the North Central States 'a3 >oinps were up 5
percent.
Beef steers and heifers (grading Prime, Choice and Good) sold out of first hands for F-iurhter at
12 major livestock markets during July, August, and September totaled 1 percent above the sane 3 months
in 1959. These data do not include direct sales to packing plants, mixed lots of steers and heifers,and
some deliveries bought on prior contracts.
Of the cattle and calves on feed in the 26 States October 1, those weighing under 500 pounds were 6
percent of the total or the same as a year earlier; the number 500-699 pounds made up 19 percent on
October 1 this year and 17 percent a year earlier; and the 700-899 pound group accounted for 35 and 34
percent, respectively. The number weighing 900-1,099 pounds at 33 percent compares with 35 percent a
year earlier and those weighing 1,100 pounds and over amounted to 7 percent of the total, 1 percentage
point less than last year.
A breakdown of the October 1 number on feed in the 26 States by weight groups shows larger numbers
than a year earlier in the 500-699 and 700-899 pound groups but numbers in all other groups were down.
The number weighing less than 500 pounds totaled 315,000 head on October 1, compared with 322,000 a year
earlier-down 2 percent; the 500-699 pound groups amounted to )-7,000 head--up 130,000 head, or 15 per-
cent; and the 700-899 pound group at 1,752,000 head was up 52,000 head. The 900-1,0(,- pound group
totaled 1,663,000 head-down 60,000 head or 3 percent; and the number weighing over 1,100 pounds at
358,000 head was down 41,000 head.
In the 26 States, 70 percent of the cattle and calves on feed October 1 were steers and steer
calves, 29 percent were heifers and heifer calves, and 1 percent were cows and other. This is the same
percentage breakdown as on July 1 this year and October 1 a year earlier.
In the 26 States, cattle and calves by length of time on feed as a percent of the total this year
and last were: under 3 months, 52 and 54 percent; 3 to 6 months, 26 and 25 percent; and over 6 months,
22 and 21 percent.
Reports from cattle feeders in the 26 States indicate that they intend to market 59 percent of the
October 1 number on feed during October, November, and December. This would be 2,993,000 head of fed
cattle, 3 percent above the comparable marketing of 2,894,000 head during the fourth quarter of 1959.
From this total of anticipated quarterly marketing, cattle feeders in the 26 States reported that th y
expected to sell 35 percent in October, 30 percent in November, and 35 percent in December.
