MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers and heifers closed gener-
ally steady to 500 lower at midwest terminals
under the influence of lower prices in the
dressed trade. Cows were steady to 750 lower at
most points, to offset most of the upturn re-
corded on this class the previous week. Stockers
and feeders closed very uneven, averaging about
steady. Barrows and gilts were steady to 500
lower; sows uneven averaging about steady. At
most terminals slaughter lambs closed steady to
50 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Despite a
small decrease in cattle receipts at the 12
markets, most price changes were toward lower
levels. Nevertheless, quite a bit of irregu-
larity was noted, particularly in cows. In a
general way, slaughter steers sold steady to 50
lower, except in Chicago where declines extended
to $1.00,but at Sioux City where the supply of
slaughter steers was smallest for any week in
over a year, prices were steady to 500 higher.
Good to Prime steers in Chicago declined 500-
$1.00 and reached new lows since last November.
A continued slow wholesale dressed trade was a
bearish factor in the live trade. Heifers
closed generally steady to 50f lower with down-
turns running to $1.25 on Good to Prime grades
in Chicago. At most points cows sold steady to
750 lower, some $1.00 off in Chicago. However,
at Sioux Falls, Kansas City and Oklahoma City
prices were unevenly steady to 758 higher. Bulls
finished mostly steady to 500 higher, while
vealers were steady to $2.00 lower in St. Paul
but $1.00 higher in St. Louis. Good and Choice
steers and heifers continued to form the bulk of
supplies at most markets. The percentage of
Prime steers in Chicago was 14 percent,down
slightly from recent weeks, but still much
greater than usual for this season of the year.
In Chicago 12 loads Prime 1040-1560#
slaughter steers $27.75-28.25 with bulk Prime
and mixed Choice and Prime 1100-1400# $26.50-
27.50. High-Choice and Prime 950-1275# steers
at other markets $26.00-26.50, load 1122#f
$26.60 in Omaha where high-Choice and Prime
1038-1328# brought $25.25-25.75. Bulk Choice
900-1300# at most points $24.00-25.50, in Chicago
$24.50-26.25, bulk Good $21.50-24.25. Prime
heifers reached $26.25 early but nothing above
$25.50 at midweek. Bulk Choice heifers $23.50-
25.00, Good largely $21.00-23.50. Utility and
Commercial cows $16.00-18.00, Canner and Cutter
$13.50-16.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and calves
at terminal markets were seasonally moderate and
showed little change from last week or a year
earlier. Quality was at a fairly high level for
this time of year. Good and Choice grades pre-
dominated. A large percent of the supplies


consisted of yearling steers. Stock calves were
in moderate numbers at several markets but two-
year-old steers were relatively scarce. There
was considerable unevenness both in the degree
of activity and price trends at the different
markets. Most aggressive demand centered on
calves and 500-700# yearling stockers. Such
kinds were well maintained at steady prices and
at Oklahoma City and Fort Worth were strong to
50 higher. At Sioux City prices were fully
500 higher, instances $1.00 up. Buyers were
noticeably more cautious on steers over 750#
than on lighterweight cattle and at midwest
markets other than Sioux City fleshy 750-1050#
feeders at best were only moderately active at
steady to easier prices, instances 50* lower.
Further downturns in slaughter cattle prices
tended to discourage feeder buyer interest at
current price levels and only a small percent
of the fleshy two-way cattle on offer went back
to the country for further feeding.
Bulk Good and Choice 550-750# stock steers
brought $23.50-27.50; a moderate number of
Choice $28.00-30.00; load Choice and Fancy 530#
$31.00. Medium and low-Good stockers bulked at
$20.00-24.00. Several loads Choice around 8'-n1#
feeders brought $25.25-25.50, majority Good and
Choice 800-105Q0 steers $22.00-25.00, few Good
900-950# $21.50. At St. Paul Good and Choice
976# feeders sold at $23.00. Good and Choice
yearling heifers sold chiefly from $22.00-25.00,
few loads Choice 530-575# $26.00-27.00. Occa-
sional shipments of Choice steer calves brought
$32.00-32.50 and at Denver Choice 300# reached
$33.60. Bulk Good and Choice steer calves went
from $25.00-31.00, same grades heifer calves
$22.00-28.00; two loads Choice 400# heifers
$28.75-29.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Marketings of
hogs at the 12 markets totaled 284,000 head, 4
percent below the previous week and 18 percent
under a year ago. Bulk of the supply was com-
prised of shipments of mixed U. S. No. 1,2 and
3 190-260# barrows and gilts with a moderate
volume of 270-300# at western Corn Belt markets.
The average weight of barrows and gilts at the
8 markets was 232#, compared 231# the previous
week and 229# a year ago. Sows made up 5 to
10 percent of the receipts. Despite the re-
duced supply, demand continued generally
sluggish most of the week. A declining price
trend on most fresh pork cuts at the wholesale
dressed meat centers no doubt was the main
factor influencing the bearishness in the live
trade. Trading generally moved rather slowly
at most centers during the week. Price spreads
between weight groups were quite narrow with a
large share of the 180-270# butchers selling in
a 50 range. The top price at the various
markets was usually paid for U. S. No. 1-2, 180-
240# barrows and gilts, however, shipments of










these same grades scaling up to 255# and promis-
ing a high yield of lean cuts also commanded
peak prices at some centers. Barrows and gilts
closed steady to 500 lower, large share steady
to 25 lower. Sows were highly uneven, averag-
ing about steady.
At the close U. S. No. 1-2, 180-240#
barrows and gilts brought largely $17.50-18.00,
up to $18.25 at a few points. Mixed U. S. 1,2
and 3 180-250# sold at $17.00-17.75, most sales
$17.00-17.50, this latter range including
weights up to 270# at Chicago and up to 280# at
Sioux City. U. S. 2-3, 280-360# butchers brought
$16.25-17.00. U. S. 1-3, 270-600# sows sold
over an extreme range of $14.50-16.75, largely
S15.00-16.50.
Prices on feeder pigs declined 25-500 at
St. Paul, but held steady at Sioux City. Good
and Choice 130-160# at St. Paul brought $16.75-
17.25, with same grades 130-170# at Sioux City
$16.50-17.00, a few Choice $17.25.
HOGS Hog receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area totaled 343,000 head,
7 percent less than the previous week, but little
changed from a year ago. Supplies were quite
evenly distributed on a daily basis and, after
a slight advance on Monday, prices weakened
gradually. Barrows and gilts closed weak to 250
lower; sows 15-250 lower.
On Friday, mixed U. S. 1,2 and 3 200-240#
barrows and gilts, and including a few 190-200;/,
sold at $16.50-17.25 with No. 1 and 2 lots at
$17.00-17.50 and few mainly No. 1 selected lots
reached $17.75. U. S. 1-3 270-4004 sows cleared
from $14.75-16.30; 400-550# 13.50-15.50.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets totaled 106,000 head,
about. the same as the previous week but
9 percent more than a year earlier. Seasonally
increased numbers of shorn slaughter lambs were
marketed and spring slaughter lambs began to
move in volume at southern terminals. Prices on
slaughter lambs declined under the influence of
lower dressed prices. Slaughter lambs were
generally steady to 500 lower. However, shorn
lambs 500-$1.00 lower at Fort Worth and all
slaughter lambs were steady to 500 higher at
Chicago. Slaughter ewes were steady. Feeding
and shearing lambs were steady to 500 lower, the
declines at Omaha and Fort Worth.
Choice and Prime 80-114# wooled slaughter
lambs brought $17.00-17.75 on the close, a
limited volume $18.00-18.50; Choice and Prime
115-125/ $15.75-17.00. Good and Choice 90-115#

and Prime 86# spring lambs $21.00 with Good and


Choice 80-100# $18.00-19.00 late sales mainly
$18.00. Cull to Choice wooled and shorn slaugh-

feeders $14.50-16.00. Good and Choice shearing
lambs 90-118# $16.25-17.00.
Receipts of sheep and lambs in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area were 25 percent be-
low a week earlier but 7 percent more than last
year. Despite the rather sharp reduction in
marketing, demand was only fair and prices for
slaughter lambs were weak to 500 lower. Slaugh-
ter ewes were steady. An increased volume of
shorn slaughter lambs accounted for 40-50
percent of the lamb supply.
Choice and Prime 80-105# wooled slaughter
lambs brought $16.50-17.25 on the close with
most sales $17.00-17.25; a moderate volume of

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading in the Boston wool market was slow

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Steer beef prices were
steady to $1.00 lower with least decline at New
York; cow beef sold steady to $2.00 higher; veal
and calf steady to $2.00 higher. Lamb closed
steady to $2.00 higher, except small tonnage at
close in New York fully $1.00 lower. Pork loins
were steady to $3.00 lower; Boston butts steady
to $2.00 higher; spareribs and fresh skinned
hams steady to $2.00 lower.
Kosher dressed steer forequarters closed
steady to 500 lower; veal and calf $1.00-2.00
higher; lamb steady to $3.00 higher.
Good clearance prevailed despite a slow
trade with reduced receipts largely instrumental
in clean-up of beef, lamb and pork. Lower prices
also assisted in clearance on beef and pork
loins. Steer ribs and loins far out-sold other
beef cuts, but rounds and hinds showed improve-
ment while chucks, carcasses and rough cuts were
poor. Cow beef activity was fair, however, less
urgent than previous week. Veal and calf cleared
promptly. Feature of lamb by large chain stores
influenced active trading on this class. Boston
pork butts were in good demand with other pork
cuts, particularly loins, under pressure due to
poor outlets.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef closed
steady to $1.00 lover, mostly 500-$1.00 off;
Standard veal about steady, Good to Prime $1.00-
2.00 lower; lamb mostly 50# lower. Pork loins
$3.00-3.50 lower; Boston butts 4-8# and spare-
ribs 3# down steady to 50# higher.
Moderate supplies of all classes of fresh
meats proved more than ample to meet current
demand. Beef for the most part graded Good and
Choice, with bulk lamb 55-70# offerings. Carcass
beef was slow and followed a lower trend with
most bearish factor in this division substan-
tially lower prices on arm and squarecut chucks
and rounds. Outlets were fairly broad for ribs,
loins and fabricated loin cuts but only slight
price advances were recorded. Moderate demand
prevailed for Standard veal, however, demand
for Good to Prime rather narrow. An early
moderately active carcass lamb trade was rather
slow after midweek with buyers concentrating
mostly on primal cuts, particularly legs. Lamb
ribs were rather hard to move. Trading rather
brisk for Boston butts, but pork loins and spare-
ribs generally slow. Daily declines were re-
corded on pork loins and prices currently are
at the lowest levels since last May.

PACIFIC COAST Steer beef sold mostly
steady to 50# lower, except Choice 500-725# was
50#-$1.00 higher in Seattle. Cow beef was mostly
steady to 50# lower, the decline in Los Angeles.


Calf and veal sold steady to $2.00 lower in
California and strong to $1.00 higher in the
northwest. Old crop lamb sold mostly $1.00
higher in the northwest, but steady in Cali-
fornia, with sales of spring laab in California
weak to $3.00 lower. Fresh pork was steady to
$2.00 lower, smoked pork generally weak to $1.00
lower, except picnics $3.00 higher in San Fran-
cisco.
The pre-Easter demand for dressed meats
centered on smoked hams and spring lamb, with
beef rib and loin cuts also in good demand.
Otherwise normal supplies usually exceeded the
current narrow demand and trading was generally
slow. Most of the activity on spring lamb was
confined to California.

$3.00 lower. Supplies most classes slightly
below normal with trading slow under a rather
poor demand.
