MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Cattle receipts at the 12 markets were
slightly less than the previous week, but con-
tinued about normal for the season of year at
269,000 head. Early price declines on slaughter
steers and heifers were more than recovered on
the close at most midwest terminals under the
influence of more moderate marketing after Mon-
day and a stronger trend in the dressed trade.
Slaughter steers and heifers closed generally
steady to 25# higher. Cows sold steady to 50#
lower. Stockers and feeders were mostly steady.
Barrows and gilts closed 504-$1.25 higher with
rather sharp advances late in the week pushing
prices to the highest levels since mid-August.
Spring slaughter lambs sold strong to 50# higher,
instances $1.00 up.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Distribution
of receipts and religious holidays during the
week played an important role in the slaughter
steer and heifer trade at major midwest termi-
nals. Supplies were only slightly reduced from
the previous week when cattle receipts were the
largest since October, 1959. However, better
than 50 percent of the week's total arrived on
Monday and this together with the bearish influ-
ence of lower wholesale carcass beef prices and
two non-koshering days the latter part of the
week prompted a lower trend. This trend was
reversed by midweek at several points as prices
responded to more moderate offerings after Mon-
day and a strong trend on carcass beef which re-
covered much of the early declines. Slaughter
steers and heifers sold steady to 250 higher at
most markets with steers at Chicago strong to
fully 500 higher. However, St. Joseph, Kansas
City and St. Louis closed steady to 500 lower.
Cows sold steady to 500 lower responding to de-
clines in the carcass trade. Bulls were mostly
steady although Chicago showed a 500-$1.00 lower
trend. Vealers sold $1.00-3.00 lower at St.
Louis and St. Paul. Slaughter steers and heifers
continued to form the bulk of the receipts but
several terminals received from 30-50 percent
stockers and feeders. Good to average-Choice
grades predominated in the slaughter steer and
heifer supply with only Chicago receiving any
sizable number of Prime.
Several loads of Prime 1175-1325# slaughter
steers brought $26.75-27.25 in Chicago where load-
lots mixed Choice and Prime steers bulked at
$24.75-26.50 with a few loads over 1400# $24.00.
At other points high-Choice and mixed Choice and
Prime steers sold at $24.50-25.25. High-Good
and Choice steers brought $25.00-25.25 with a few
loads Choice 1000-1200# included from $25.00-
25.25 at some terminals. Good steers bulked at
21.50-25.50 while Standard and low-Good sold
from $18.00-22.00. Mixed Choice and Prime
slaughter heifers moved from $23.75-24.60. Choice
heifers brought $22.50-24.00 and most Good sold


from $20.00-22.50. Utility and Commercial cows
sold at $15.50-16.00, Canners and Cutters at
$12.00-14.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
With the fall movement of stocker and feeder
cattle now well under way, supplies at midwest
terminal markets continued seasonally large.
High-Good and Choice 550-950# yearling and two-
year-old steers made up a relatively large per-
centage of supplies, but Medium to average-Good
grades continued to be well represented number-
wise. Three-year-old steers of Good and Choice
grades were rather scarce. Price trends and
degree of trading activity varied considerably
during the week. For the most part price levels
showed little net change from the previous week,
but at several markets early week trading was .-
fairly active at steady to stronger prices while
at the close trading in general was slow, steady
to easier, instances fully 50# lower.
Several loads Choice 550-650# stock steers
brought $26.25-26.50; majority Good and Choice
525-700# $22.00-26.00, few Good $21.00. Two
loads Choice 707# brought $26.00 and two loads
Choice 770# $25.50. However, not many above
725# exceeded $25.00. Medium and low-Good
stocker steers ranged from $18.00-22.50. A few
loads Choice 800-850# feeder steers brought
$24.00, bulk Good and Choice 800-1050# $20.50-
25.50. At Omaha a shipment Good and Choice 1150#
cashed at $20.50. Medium and low-Good feeder
steers sold from $18.00-21.00 and at Oklahoma
City some Medium brought $16.50. Good and Choice
yearling heifers brought $19.50-25.50. Not many
exceeded $25.00, but one shipment Choice 591#
heifers reached $24.00. Good and Choice stock
steer calves sold from $22.00-28.00, majority
$25.50-27.00. Same grades heifer calves ranged
from $20.00-25.00, two loads Choice 259-525#
$26.25-26.50.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog receipts at
the 12 markets were only slightly less than the
previous week, but dropped 19 percent under the
corresponding week a year ago. Bulk of the sup-
ply again was comprised of mixed U.S. No. 1-5
and lots No. 2-5 190-250# barrows and gilts with
sows making up from 7 17 percent at the various
centers. The average weight of barrows and
gilts at the 8 markets was 223, unchanged from
the previous week, but 4# above the corresponding
week last year. Sharply higher prices featured
the week' s hog market with the advance pushing
prices to the highest levels since mid-August.
Most of the upturn was recorded late in the
period under the influence of a broad shipper
demand and higher prices on the dressed product.
On Friday, prices on barrows and gilts were
largely 50f-$1.25 higher than the previous week's
close. The upturn at Chicago measured $1.00-


714









1.25 and was the greatest advance for any one
week there in over a year. Saws finished 25f-
$1.00 higher.
On the close U. S. No. 1-2, and at some
points uniform mixed U. S. 1-3, 190-250#
barrows and gilts sold at $17.25-18.00, most
sales $17.50-17.85. Mixed U. S. 1-5, and U. S.
2-5, 180-270# offerings brought $16.50-17.75,
largely $17.00-17.75. U. S. 1-35, 270-600# sows
sold at mainly $13.50-15.75, with some U. S.
1-2, 250-3550# $16.00-16.25.
Prices on feeder pigs advanced 500 at St.
Paul and were 504-$1.00 higher at Sioux City.
Medium and Good, mostly Good, 150-170# sold late
at Sioux City from $15.00-15.50, few Choice
$16.00, while Good and Choice 150-160# feeders
at St. Paul brought $15.50-16.00.

HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Hog receipts were 6 percent more than
the previous week, but 18 percent less than the
corresponding week last year. A generally good
daily demand, met by only moderate supplies,
prompted higher prices for the period with most
of the advance recorded from midweek on.
Barrows and gilts closed 754-$1.00 higher. Sows
270-55330# were 35-50# higher while heavier saws
sold 50-750 higher. Mixed U. S. No. 1-5 200-
240# barrows and gilts sold on the close at
$16.00-16.75 with limited number mostly No. 1
selected lots $16.75-17.00. No. 1-5 sows 270-
400W brought $14.00-15.75, 400-550# mostly No.
2-3 $12.35-14.50.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Sheep and lamb receipts
at the 12 markets were 32 percent less than the
rather large marketing a week earlier and 20
percent below a year ago. The supply was pre-
dominately wooled spring slaughter lambs. Feeder
lambs accounted for 25-40 percent of the lamb
marketing. Fairly good demand, against sharply
reduced numbers on offer, served to strengthen
prices at most terminals. Price advances were
made in the live trade despite downturns on the
dressed product. Spring slaughter lambs closed
strong to 500 higher and instances $1.00 up.
Slaughter ewes sold uneven, but mainly steady
with instances 25# higher. Feeder lambs were
steady to 500 lower, instances $1.00 off at Fort
Worth and Kansas City, but steady to 250 higher
at Denver.
Late in the week, Choice and Prime 85-13.11#
spring slaughter lambs, including limited
numbers of shorn lambs with No. 1-2 pelts, sold
from $17.00-18.50, largely $17.50-18.50; sales
at a few markets reached $19.00-19.25, the
latter price at Denver. Good and Choice brought
$15.50-18.00, mainly $16.00-17.50; Utility and
Good $12.00-16.00. A few shipments of Good and
Choice shorn slaughter yearlings with No. 1 and
fall shorn pelts brought $12.00-16.00. Cull to
Choice shorn slaughter ewes moved at $2.00-5.00
and few at $5.25.
Good and Choice 50-85# spring feeder lambs
brought $15.00-17.50 with western feeders at


$16.00-17.50. An 8-load-string of Choice 66#
Wyoming feeders reached $18.00 and 4 loads aver-
aging 62# $18.50 at Omaha. Medium and Good
feeders sold at $12.00-16.00, Common and Medium
$10.00-12.00. A few shipments of Good solid
mouth breeding ewes brought $7.50-12.00 per head,
while a few short-term ewes went out at $4.00-
8.00.
Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area
receipts were 4 percent more than the previous
week, and 2 percent less than a year ago.
Spring slaughter lambs were strong to 500 higher,
instances $1.00 up with the advance confined
mainly to lambs grading Choice and Prime.Slaugh-
ter ewes were steady to weak. On Friday, Choice
and Prime 80-105# spring slaughter lambs de-
livered to packing plants sold from $17.00-18.00,
few Choice and Prime reached $18.50 in one
section; Good and Choice $15.50-17.50. Cull to

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRAIE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Fully normal supplies of
steer beef were ample for the current demand.
Hindquarters were hardest to move in the beef
division with few lots unsold, otherwise clear-
ance complete. Normal supplies of veal, calf,
spring lamb and pork met a generally good demand
with fairly complete clearance. Most interests
were active in the trade and fully normal tonnage
absorbed by virtually all outlets. Best movement
of meats at New York and Philadelphia occurred on
sessions previous to close of business on Wednes-
day as majority wholesale establishments at these
markets were closed thereafter for Jewish Holy
Day observance.
Compared with previous week: Steer beef
closed steady to $1.00 lower, bulk at Philadelphia
off 50# and full decline posted at Washington
while declines of 50# in New York were confined
to some Good grade carcasses. Cow beef sold
steady to 50 higher; veal $1.00-3.00 higher at
Philadelphia, and steady to weak at New York,
with calf fully $1.00 lower at the latter market,
otherwise prices unchanged. Spring lamb sold
steady to $2.00 lower with most sales at New York
fully $1.00 off. Pork loins were $1.00-2.00
lower at Baltimore and steady to 50 lower at
Washington, although prices advanced $1.00 in
Philadelphia and the trend at New York was steady
to $1.50 higher, the upturn limited to late clos-
ing sales. Other pork cuts were steady to $2.00
higher in the Washington-Baltimore area while at
other markets spareribs were mostly $1.00 lower,
Boston butts and fresh skinned hams steady to
$1.00 higher. Trading for kosher dressed meats
was brisk on the opening session with demand
broad. However, demand was poor Tuesday and
Wednesday. Prices for kosher steer forequarters
were steady to 50# higher; spring lamb $1.00-2.00
up; veal and calf steady.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef and spring
lamb offerings were normal but supplies of fresh
pork were only moderate. The veal supply was
very moderate. Bulk of the beef supply was Good
and Choice while Utility and Standard veal was
most plentiful. Beef followed a lower trend the
forepart of the week but the decline was more
than recovered on late advances. Good steer car-
casses was the only class failing to advance late.
Chucks and ribs were active throughout, but action
improved at midweek and these found a good outlet
on the close. Loins were again slow but clearance
was generally good. Outlet for spring lamb was
rather narrow with hindeaddles finding the best
demand. Good to Prime veal moved readily but
lower grades were available in sufficient quanti-
ty to prompt a slow trade at lower price levels
making for a two-way trend on this class. Spare-
ribs were rather slow, but otherwise fresh pork
trade became progressively more active during the
week with pork loins registering substantial ad-


vances. Compared to the previous Friday: Steer
and heifer beef sold steady to 50# higher but
largely steady to strong; spring lamb steady to
50 lower; Good to Prime veal steady, lower
grades $1.00 lower. Pork loins and Boston butts
4-8# closed $1.00-2.00 higher, spareribs 3#
down steady to weak.

PACIFIC COAST The supply of steer beef
was rather liberal but clearance was generally
complete. Volume of cow beef was moderate for
fair demand. Choice veal was rather scarce,
otherwise veal and calf was ample. Trading was
moderately active for normal supplies of spring
lamb, and fairly active for fresh and smoked
pork. Steer beef closed steady to $1.00 lower;
cow beef steady; calf and veal unchanged at most
points; spring lamb steady to $1.00 lower except
steady to $1.00 higher at San Francisco. Pork
loins sold steady to $1.00 lower in California
while Boston butts and fresh hams advanced $1.00
at Los Angeles, otherwise fresh pork was steady;
smoked pork mostly steady.

CARLOT MEAT TRADM REVIEWS

MIDWEST CARLOT DRESSED MEAT SUMMARY -
Prices declined on steer and cow beef and spring
lamb carcasses although part of the early de-
clines were recovered late on steer beef. Prices
advanced on pork as outlet exceeded below normal
supplies. Clearance was generally complete on
all classes. Steer beef closed steady to $1.00
lower; heifer beef mostly 25# higher; cow beef
steady to $1.00 lower; Choice and Prime spring
lamb very uneven averaging near steady. Pork
loins and pork butts $1.00-2.50 higher; fresh

CARLOT SUMMARY Chicago, Denver, New York
and Philadelphia. Bearish effects of the non-
slaughtering Jewish Holidays influenced a very
uneven trade at the close. However, demand for
non-kosher meats improved as the week progressed.
Steer and heifer beef closed steady to $1.00
lower, except steady to 500 higher at Chicago.
Cow beef closed weak to $1.00 lower, mostly 50#-
$1.00 off; spring lamb steady to 500 lower, with
New York 500-$1.00 off. Pork loins sold $1.00-
2.00 higher.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading for greasy domestic worsted wools
was slow at the Boston market. Not enough
grease wool was sold to test prices. A small
quantity of graded fine wool and medium fleeces
was sold. There was a fair demand for woolen
wools. Demand was good for clear fine noils
at firm prices. One or two topmakers were ac-
tive in the western States buying up mostly fine
wool during the previous week. Trading in
Texas was slow, and only few sales were made
in the fleece wool S-ates.
Midweek cables from Australia showed Japan
and the Continent dominating with animated
competition and prices tending upward. A good
selection of topmaking merino wools were offered.
Quotations from South Africa showed a stronger
trend with large French houses operating. There
was a fair demand for coarse Buenos Aires carpet
wools. Little was done in Montevideo at un-
changed prices.
Fleece Wools There was a slight demand
for 5/8s and 1/4 blood fleece wools but not
enough sold for a price test.
Territory Wools Graded 64s good French
combing and staple territory wool sold around
$1.15-1.14 clean basis. Graded 64s staple
Wyoming and Montana wool brought $1.15 delivered
Boston while bulk fine and half-blood Wyoming
wools in original bags brought $1.05-1.08 clean
basis delivered. Approximately 2,500,000 to
2,750,000# of original bag bulk fine wool was
offered at sealed bid sale at Albuquerque and
approximately one-third of this was sold. Bulk
fine good French combing and staple wool brought
mostly $1.05-1.10 clean basis, delivered.
Texas Wools Prices in Texas were slightly
stronger with good 12 months wool selling front,
$1.12-1.14 while choice Delaine type wool in
original bags brought around $1.18 clean basis
delivered Boston.
Mohair Original bag mohair sold in Texas
at 712 for adult and $1.01-1.06 for kid hair
to the warehouse while straight kid mohair moved
at $1.40-1.50 to the warehouses. Trade in th
Boston market was slow.
Foreign Wools Trading for spot foreign
wools was practically at a standstill. 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.
