MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Livestock marketing increased sharply as
anticipated following the Labor Day week. Cattle
receipts were the largest since last October with
stocker and feeder steer shipments from the 10
markets up sharply. Prices on slaughter steers
were steady to 50 lower for the week at most
midwest markets with the trend 50#-1.00 off at
Chicago on Choice and Prime steers weighing over
1200# and 50-75# off on steers 1250# up at Omaha.
Slaughter heifers-were unevenly steady to $1.00
lower. Prices on slaughter cows were steady to
500 higher; stockers and feeders mostly steady.
The general trend on barrows and gilts was steady
to 25# higher. Spring slaughter lambs sold
mainly $1.00-1.50 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Lower whole-
sale dressed beef prices, and the forthcoming
non-slaughtering kosher holidays were bearish
factors contributing toward price declines on
steers and heifers at midwest terminals. Choice
and Prime steers 1200# and heavier underwent the
sharpest decline with the coming Jewish holidays
narrowing the demand on suiattle. Slaughter
steers sold steady to 506/except 50-75# lower at
Omaha on steers 1250# up, and 50#-1.00 off at
Chicago on Choice and Prime steers over 1200#.
Price spread between grades continued to narrow
with weight increasing in importance as a price
determining factor. Slaughter heifers were
steady to $1.00 lower, the greatest decline on
Standard and Good at most points. However, at
St. Paul prices were 500-1.00 lower on Good and
Choice heifers with Utility and Standard steady.
The increased supply of slaughter cows sold
steady to 50 higher reflecting upturns on
dressed cow beef. Bulls sold steady to 50# higher
at most terminals. Vealers were steady to $2.00
higher at St. Paul and St. Louis. Slaughter
steers and heifers continued to form the bulk of
the supply at most centers although several points
reported from 50-55 percent stocker and feeder
cattle. Good to average-Choice grades predomi-
nated in slaughter steer and heifer receipts al-
though several points again received a small
increase in the number of high-Choice and Prime.
A half dozen loads Prime 1200-1500# slaughter
steers sold from $27.00-27.25 at Chicago. Load-
lots Prime and mixed Choice and Prime 1000-1500#
steers brought $25.00-26.50 over the area with
same grades weighing 1500-1525# $24.00-25.50,
some high-Choice 1500-1500# $25.50-25.75 at Omaha.
High-Good and Choice slaughter steers bulked at
$25.00-25.25, most Good $21.25-23.50. A few
loads of mixed Choice and Prime slaughter heifers
brought $24.00-24.75 with two loads at $25.00 and
$25.25 in Chicago. Most Choice heifers brought
$22.00-24.00, Good $20.00-22.50. Utility and Com-
mercial cows cashed at $14.00-16.50, Canners and
Cutters $12.00-15.00.


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Mid-September found the movement of cattle
and calves from range and pastures to market
in full swing. Receipts of stockers and feed-
ers at terminal markets were the largest thus
far this season. Shipments from the 10 markets
totaled 65,000 head, compared with 54,700 the
previous week and 68,700 last year. At Kansas
City, Omaha, and Sioux City a total of 36,500
head were marketed and at Oklahoma City 12,000
stocker and feeder cattle and calves were on
offer. Although Medium and low-Good grades
were plentiful, high-Good and Choice offerings
made up a larger percentage of the supplies
than earlier this season. Scattered shipments
of 1100-1200# three-year-old steers were
marketed but majority of the steers ranged
from 500-950#. Stock calves continued in rela-
tively limited supply. Trading at midwest
terminals was fairly active at mostly steady
prices with occasional instances of weakness
under the influence of increased numbers and
a lower price trend for slaughter cattle.
However, at Oklahoma City prices on a liberal
supply were 500-1.00 lower and at Fort Worth
ruled unevenly steady to $1.00 lower.
A few loads Choice 800-850# steers brought
$24.00-24.50 and at Chicago Choice partly
fattened 950# were included at $24.00. Majori-
ty Good and Choice 800-1050# feeders cashed at
$20.50-25.75, Medium and low-Good $18.00-21.00.
Choice 1160# steers off Montana grass sold at
$22.00, a shipment Good and Choice 1109#
feeders $21.00. Choice 512# stock steers
brought $27.00, many loads Choice 525-600#
yearlings $25.75-26.00, other Good and Choice
525-750# stockers $22.00-25.50, Medium and
low-Good $18.00-22.00. Choice 545# stock
heifers brought $25.00, Choice 642# feeder
heifers $24.25; other Good and Choice yearling
heifers $19.00-24.00. Choice 274# mixed steer
and heifer Wyoming calves reached $29.00 but
most Good and Choice steer calves ranged from
$22.00-28.00, same grades heifer calves largely
$20.00-26.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets The marketward
movement of hogs at the 12 markets expanded 27
percent over the previous holiday-shortened
week but receipts were 15 percent under the
same week a year ago. Mixed lots of U. S. No.
1-3 and lots No. 2-3, 190-250# barrows and
gilts again made up the bulk of the supply,
however, there was some increase in weights
over 220# with the average weight of butchers
at many points figuring a few pounds heavier
than a week ago. Sows made up 8-17percent
of the receipts at the various markets. The
increased receipts generally found a dependable
outlet. Shipper demand was relatively broad








for both butchers and sows throughout the entire
week. Price spreads between weights and grades
continued rather narrow over much of the area
with bulk of the barrows and gilts selling with-
in a 25-500 price spread. Compared with the
previous week's close, barrows and gilts were
steady to 254 higher over much of the Corn Belt,
however, prices at Omaha and Sioux City ranged
25-500 higher while Chicago closed steady to
254 lower. Sow prices were uneven. Closing
sales were strong to 754 higher at most north-
west Corn Belt terminals, but generally steady
to 254 lower elsewhere.
On Friday, No. 1-2, 190-250# barrows and
gilts brought $16.50-17.00, mainly $16.60-16.75.
Mixed U. S. 1-3, and U. S. 2-5, 180-280# offer-
ings $16.00-16.65, bulk $16.25-16.50. U. S. 1-
3, 270-600# sows brought $12.75-15.00 for the
most part, with U. S. 1-2, 250-3350# sows
$15.25-15.50 at a few points.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.No.
1 over No. 5 live basis 200-220# barrows and
gilts was 910 per cwt. based on wholesale car-
lot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago Sep-
tember 8 to September 14, 1960, inclusive.
Feeder pig prices held steady at Sioux City
but were strong to 500 higher at St. Paul. Good
and Choice, mostly Good 130-160# offerings
brought $15.00-15.50 late at St. Paul while Med-
ium to mostly Good 130-170# feeders at Sioux
City sold from $14.50-15.00, few Good and Choice
$15.25.

HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts were around 9 percent more than
the previous week, but around 22 percent less
than the corresponding week last year. Demand
was good on most sessions and the daily move-
ment appeared barely adequate for slaughter
requirements. Price variations were small
with strength around midweek resulting in
butcher sales closing 15-254 higher and sows
steady to 254 higher for the week. Sows made
up around 10 percent of the receipts. Mixed
No. 1-3 butchers 200-2404 sold from $15.25-
15.75 on Friday with a limited volume No. 1 and
2 lots $15.75-16.15. No. 1-3 270-400# sows
brought $15.50-15.40, 400-550# $11.50-13.80.

SHEEP AND LAMBS The 12-market sheep and
lamb receipts were 66 percent above the holiday-
shortened previous week but about the same as
a year ago. Spring slaughter lambs continued to
predominate in supplies with a large share grad-
ing Choice. However, the volume of spring
feeders increased substantially at several
points. For the week, slaughter lambs were
unevenly 500 to mostly $1.00-1.50 lower,
instances $2.00-2.50 off. The decline was
influenced by lower dressed lamb prices.
Slaughter ewes were mostly steady,
instances strong to 500 higher. Feeder lambs
were mostly steady, but were steady to 254
higher at Denver and 500 up at St. Paul.
Choice and Prime 85-106# spring slaughter
lambs, including a limited volume of shorn lambs


with No. 1-2 pelts, brought $17.00-18.00 on
late rounds, few sales $18.25-18.50; Good and
Choice $15.50-17.50, mainly $16.00-17.00. Cull
to Choice shorn slaughter ewes $2.00-4.50, few
$5.00.
Good and Choice 50-85# feeder lambs sold
from $15.00-17.50, largely $16.00-17.50. At
Omaha, Choice 64-72# Wyoming feeders brought
$17.50-18.75, 2 loads 53-55# $19.25. Medium and
Good feeders realized $12.00-16.00.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota Area,
receipts were 8 percent over a week earlier but
7 percent under last year. Spring slaughter
lambs closed 500-1.00 lower, slaughter ewes weak.
On Friday, Choice including some Prime 80-105/f
spring slaughter lambs sold from $17.00-17.50
delivered to packing plants; Good and low-Choice
$15.00-17.00. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter
ewes brought $2.00-4.00.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading for greasy domestic worsted
wools in the Boston market was practically
at a standstill and price trends were nomi-
nally steady. Sales of woolen wools were
limited at about unchanged prices. Sales
volume was small in noils at steady prices.
Cabled reports from Australia showed
prices at Sydney and Perth advanced about
two pence with the Continent and Eastern
Europe dominating and good clearances were
reported. Quotations from South Africa
were unchanged under generally good demand.
Greasy Buenos Aires carpet wool types were
off about two cents while the Montevideo
market was quiet with some topmaker interest
in 60s and 60/64s.
Fleece Wools Graded 64s good French
combing and staple fleeces sold around
$1.10 clean basis.
Territory Wools There were occasional
sales of original bag fine and half-blood
wools in Wyoming around $1.05 clean basis,
delivered Boston. During the first two
selling days at Albuquerque, New Mexico
original bag bulk fine good French combing
and staple wool brought from $1.05-1.07
clean basis delivered.
Texas Wools At the sealed bid sale
held in Del Rio about 530,000# were offered
and all wool was sold. Fall ewes wool
brought from 38-40# in the grease and was
estimated around 88-90# scoured basis, de-
livered Boston while lambs wool sold mostly
from 43-450 grease basis to the warehouse
and was estimated to cost from 93-950
scoured basis, delivered East. Choice
graded good French combing Sonora 12 months
wool sold at 500 to the warehouse and cost
clean around $1.15 delivered while original
bag good 12 months wool moved at $1.12 de-
livered Boston.
Mohair A modest weight of mohair sold
at 71 -for adult and $1.06* for kid hair
to the warehouse. Trading in the local mar-
ket was very slow.
Foreign Wools Trade in spot foreign
wools was dormant. Cabled reports at week's
end follow with combing wools converted to
clean U. S. oil-combed yields and short
wools to scouring yields, in bond.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Trading was fairly ac-
tive under a generally good demand at Eastern
Seaboard markets. Best buyer action noted in
several weeks prevailed at Philadelphia. At
New York retailers were particularly active for
steer rounds, ribs, arm chucks and spring lamb
while at Washington outlet was broad for steer
forequarters. Fair trade for spring lamb at
New York moved bulk into chain store channels.
Railstocks and pork cleared well at most points.
Volume of all classes at New York was moderate,
however, generally normal at other markets.
Compared with previous week: Steer beef
closed steady to 50f up; cow beef strong to main-
ly 50# higher. Choice and Prime veal sold strong
at New York, however, Standard and Good veal
and bulk calf closed $1.00 lower. At other
markets the trend for veal was strong to $4.00O
higher, with upturns of $2.00-4.00 recorded at
Philadelphia. Spring lamb closed steady to
mostly $1.00 higher. Price trends for pork
loins were uneven at New York and Washington,
at the latter market loins sold early at $1.00-
2.00 advances but late declines left the week's
trend steady to $2.00 lower. At New York loins
closed steady to $3.00 lower, bulk averaged
steady. Loin prices were steady to $3.00
higher at Baltimore and Philadelphia. Over
the area Boston butts steady to mainly $1.00
higher; spareribs steady to $2.00 lower, except
$1.00 higher at Philadelphia; fresh skinned hams
mostly steady. Trading was brisk for kosher
dressed meats during the pre-Jewish holiday
week and clearances broad for all classes. Ko-
sher steer forequarters sold strong to mostly
$1.00 higher; spring lamb $1.00 to mostly $2.00
up. Major portion of kosher veal and calf
closed $2.00 higher.

CHICAGO Supplies of all fresh meats
were normal, except veal moderate. Bulk of the
beef supply was Good and Choice. Lamb car-
casses weighing 55-65# continued scarce. Only
a small percentage of the veal supply graded
Choice and Prime with Standard and below most
plentiful. Beef followed a lower trend due
mainly to a slow carcass and hindquarter trade.
Loins were particularly slow and accumulated
to burdensome proportions in most coolers. Most
interests were active in the chuck and rib
trade with daily clearance usually complete.
Outlets were adequate for spring lamb and hind-
saddles, however, stews and shoulders were slow
with sellers discounting price in many instances
to move. Rather small supply of Good to Prime
veal readily absorbed, but Standard and below
hard to sell. Fresh pork trade at the outset
was fair, however, action slowed and loins
registered their first decline in better than
two weeks.


Compared to the previous Friday: Steer
and heifer beef closed steady to $1.00 lower;
Good to Prime veal steady, Standard $1.00-2.00
lower; spring lamb fully $1.00 lower; pork
loins $2.50-3.50 lower, Boston butts 4-8# 50#-
$1.00 higher, spareribs 3# down $1.00 lower.

PACIFIC COAST Supplies of steer beef
were slightly below normal, attributed mainly
to the previous week's holiday curtailed slaugh-
ter. The Los Angeles area, however, was amply
supplied. Cow beef was in short supply in the
northwest but adequate in California. Trading
was fairly active with smaller supplies the
main supporting factor. Supply of veal and
calf was liberal. Ample supply spring lamb met
only a fair demand. Fresh pork was active,
smoked cuts rather slow. Steer beef closed
steady to $1.00 lower, the decline mainly in
California and on carcasses over 650#; cow beef
strong to $1.00 higher; calf and veal steady to
weak with Good $1.00 lower in Los Angeles;
spring lamb steady; fresh pork generally steady
to $1.00 higher, with loins in Portland $2.00-
3.00 higher but in Los Angeles loins and spare-
ribs weak to $2.00 off; smoked hams weak to
$1.00 lower, except picnics $1.00-3.00 lower
in California, other cured pork steady. Lard
steady to 50# lower.

PIG CROP REPORT SEPTEMBER 1960


The number of sows farrowed and intended to farrow in the fall of 1960 (June
through November) for 10 Corn Belt States is 3 percent smaller than in 1959, about
the same as 1958, but 14 percent larger than the 1949-58 average, according to the
Crop Reporting Board. The number is now estimated at 4,270,000 for the 10 States
(Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, Ne-
braska, and Kansas). Farrowings are below a year earlier in 7 States but above last
year in South Dakota. Nebraska, and Kansas. Decreases are 8 percent in Ohio and Wis-
consin, 6 percent in Indiana, 5 percent in Missouri, 2 percent in Illinois and Iowa,
and 1 percent in Minnesota. The September 1 survey indicates a decrease of 10,000
sows from the farrowing intentions reported for these States as of June 1, 1960. The
10 States included in this report accounted for 73 percent of the United States 1959
total pig crop.

Sows farrowed in the 10 States during June, July, and August totaled 2,232,000
head, 7 percent less than during the seme period a year earlier. This was 1 percent
less than was indicated for this period in June. June-August farrowings for these 10
States represent 52 percent of the estimated June-November total compared with the
10-year average of 51 percent. Farmers' reports indicate that the number of sows far-
rowed in June, July, and August were smaller than for the same months a year earlier,
with the largest decline in June.

Sows bred and intended for farrowing in September, October, and November this year
in the 10 States total 2,038,000 head, 3 percent more than a year earlier and 11 per-
cent above average. This is 1 percent more than the farrowing intentions reported for
these States in June.

Reported breeding intentions indicate 1,789,000 sows to farrow during the 1961
winter quarter (December 1960 through February 1961) compared with 1,713,000 sOWs
farrowed during the same period a year earlier, an increase of 4 percent. All States
except Indiana and Nebraska indicate more sows will be farrowed during this quarter
than farrowed a year earlier. Increases are South Dakota, 30 percent; Iowa, 7 percent;
Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri, 5 percent; Wisconsin, 4 percent; and Kansas,
2 percent.

The number of all hogs and pigs on farms September 1, 1960 in 10 States totaled
45,819.000 head. This is 12 percent less than the 52,008,000 head a year earlier.
Decreases in hogs on farms this September compared to last year range from 8 percent
in Ohio to 25 percent in South Dakota. Hogs and pigs 6 months old and over totaled
8,200,000 head, 17 percent less than last year. The number under 6 months of age was
11 percent less than last September. Hogs and pigs 3 to 6 months of age were 13 per-
cent below those held a year earlier. Pigs under 3 months of age were 7 percent below
last year, while sows farrowed June-August were also 7 percent below a year earlier.
This indicates the litter size for June-August to be about the same as a year earlier.
The 15,616,000 pigs under 3 months old on farms September 1 accounted for 34 percent
of all hogs. Pigs 3-6 months of age totaled 22,003,000 head, or 48 percent of all hogs.
The report for these 10 States is made possible by matching funds provided
jointly by State agencies and the United States Department of Agriculture under pro-
visions of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946.
