MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices advanced on slaughter steers and hei-
fers Monday when receipts were below normal, but
part of the early upturns were later erased when
marketing were fairly liberal. Closing prices
were steady to 500 higher for the week, upturns
on steer and heifer carcasses a supporting factor.
Slaughter cows sold steady to $1.00 lower, large
share 5004-l.0O off. Price trends were uneven
on stockers and feeders with sales steady to 500
higher, instances $1.00 up at Kansas City and
Oklahoma City but weak to 50 lower at Sioux City
and mostly steady elsewhere. Hog prices were
steady to 500 lower in spite of decreased market-
ings. Sharply lower dressed lamb prices resulted
in 500-42.00 declines on Spring and old-crop
slaughter lambs with sales at most centers $1.00-
1.50 off.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers and heifers underwent the first general
price advance in six weeks with prices on both
classes steady to 500 higher and as much as 750
higher in Chicago. Cattle marketing at major
terminals were very erratic during the week even
though the total receipts were little changed
from a week earlier. Sharp price declines the
previous two weeks influenced producers to cur-
tail marketing and supplies Monday were the
smallest for that day since early April. Steer
and heifer prices reacted to these curtailed re-
ceipts and sold on a higher basis during the in-
itial session. Tuesday's receipts were the
largest for that day, excluding holiday weeks,
since June 1959, and part of the week's early
advance was erased. Price advances on carcass
steer and heifer beef at some major wholesale
centers Monday also stimulated trading but here
again part of the advance was erased on later
sessions. Good to average-Choice offerings con-
tinued to predominate in the steer and heifer
supply. Cows sold steady to $1.00 lower; bulls
steady to 500 lower at most points; vealers
steady to $o1.00 lower at So. St. Paul and St.
Louis National Stock Yards.
Loadlots Prime and mixed Choice and Prime
steers sold from $28.00-32.00 in Chicago with
seven loads mostly Prime from $30.00-52.00 at mid-
week. At other points a few mixed Choice and
Prime steers sold from $26.25-28.00. Choice
steers bulked at $24.75-26.75 with high-Choice up
to $28.00 in Chicago; Good steers $22.00-25.00.
A few loads mixed Choice and Prime heifers brought
2?:.50-27.75 and most Choice sold at $24.50-26.25.,
Good heifers brought $21.50-24.50. Utility and
Commercial cows sold from $15.50-18.00, Canners
and Cutters $12.50-17.00.

ST'CFER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
A somewhat erratic demand existed for the season-
ally moderate numbers of stocker and feeder
cattle and calves at terminal markets. This was


reflected in uneven trading which resulted in
very decided variations in price trends at the
different markets. At Omaha, Denver and So. St.
Jbseph prices were on a steady to weak basis and
at Sioux City sales were weak to 500 lower. Mean-
while, at other terminals prices ranged from
steady to 500 higher with instances $1.00 up.
Stockers grading high-Good and Choice generally
found more reliable outlet than did other grades,
while prices on fleshy feeder steers, particularly
those over 900#, tended to reflect the frequent
fluctuations in slaughter cattle prices during the
week. Variations in quality of offerings at the
different markets undoubtedly was a factor con-
tributing to an irregular demand while differences
in localized conditions such as pasture, weather,
etc. also played a part. These are factors which
tend to influence market unevenness during the
spring months in most years. To some extent the
inconsistency of the over-all demand in recent
weeks is contrary to what might have been expected
considering that pasture conditions in general
have been good, there are abundant supplies of all
types of grainfeeds and the price relationship be-
tween feeder and slaughter cattle remains somewhat
more favorable than a year ago. For example, the
average price of all stocker and feeder steers at
10 public markets during the month of May at $24.34
was $4.18 under a year ago while the average price
of all slaughter steers at seven major markets in
May was $25.72 or only $2.23 below a year ago.
Choice, fleshy 879# feeder steers brought
$27.00 and scattered shipments Choice 800-900#
$26.00-26.25; majority Good and Choice 800-1025#
steers $22.00-25.50. Medium and low-Good feeders
ranged $18.50-22.50, most sales $20.00-22.00.
Several loads Choice 541-554# stock steers sold
from $29.00-50.50, bulk Good and Choice yearling
stockers $23.00-28.00, Medium to low Good mostly
$20-10-24,00. Good and Choice yearling heifers
ranged $19.00-26.00, the majority $21.50-25o00.
Several loads Choice 400-460# stock steer calves
brought 431.00-52.00. Other Good and Choice steer
calves ranged $24.00-30.50, same grades heifer
calves $21.00-28,00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at the
12 markets were 8 percent below the previous week
and also 8 percent under a year earlier. The
supply at Eastern Corn Belt markets included an
increased number of 180-210# barrows and gilts,
however, butchers weighing 250-300# continued to
move rather freely over much of the area. Sows
comprised 13percent of supplies at the 8 markets
compared to 12 percent the week previous and 20
percent a year ago. Declining prices on pork
loins influenced lower hog prices. However, this
factor was partially offset by reduced receipts
and rather broad shipper outlet for 190-250# bar-
rows and gilts. Prices on butchers over most of
tie area closed steady to 250 lower, but were





463


mostly 50 off at Chicago and 25-50 lower at So.
St. Paul. However,at Kansas City prices were
steady to 250 higher. Sows sold steady to 500
lower at most centers, but were steady at So. St.
Paul and steady to 25# higher at Kansas City and
St. Louis National Stock Yards.

rows and gilts, usually sorted for weight and
grade closed at $17.25-18.00 and to $18.25 at
Indianapolis where 42 head sorted U. S. 1, 200-
212# sold at $18.50. Mixed U. S. 1 3, and No.
2 3, 190-250# butchers sold largely at $16.75-
17.50 with 180-240# at Indianapolis #17.00-18.00.
U. S. 1 3, 270-600# sows brought *12.75-15.75,
mainly $13.00-15.50.
Feeder pig prices remained steady at Sioux
City but declined 500 at So. St. Paul. Medium

HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts were around 10 percent less than
the previous week but about the same as in the
corresponding week last year. Butchers weighing
200-220# comprised approximately 50 percent of
the butcher run, 23 percent 220-240#, and 25 per-
cent over 240#. Sows made up 12 percent of total
receipts. Barrows and gilts sold mostly 15-25#
lower, sows 400 lower. Bulk of the decline
after mid-week with lower fes in the dressed
market a major influence. No. 1-5, 190-240#
butchers closed at $16.10-17.00, few No. 1 and
2 selected lots 417.00-17.50; mixed No. 1-3

14.15.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12 mar-
kets were 6 percent less than a week earlier, but
6 percent over a year ago. Seasonally increased
narketings of spring slaughter lambs comprised
bulk of the receipts with most grading Choice
and Prime. Sharply lower prices on both spring
and old crop slaughter lambs featured the weeks
trading with the declines influenced by sharp
downturns and dull trading on dressed lamb,
Spring and old crop slaughter lambs sold 500-2.00
lower, mostly $1.00-1.50 off. Slaughter ewes
were uneven, mostly steady. Feeder lambs were
steady to 50# higher at Omaha, otherwise the
trend was steady to 50f lower except $1.00 off at
Denver.

old crop slaughter lambs were $1.50-2.00 lower,

ewes weak to 500 lower. The supply included
around 75 percent spring slaughter lambs.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading was slow in the Boston wool
market. Best outlet centered on graded 3/8s
and 1/4 blood fleece wools. There was re-
newed interest in graded medium fleece baby
combing and clothing wools. Price trends
were steady to strong. Woolen wools were
moderately active and sold about steady,
while noils were slow to move at unchanged
prices. Buyers continued to take up all
medium grade fleece wools as shorn in the
fleece wool States while range sales in the
territories were very limited. Trading in
Texas was slow.
Midweek cables from Australia showed
Japan, China, Continental interests and
England active with quotations firm. All
other Dominion markets were closed for the
season. There were sales of carpet wools
in Buenos Aires to United States buyers.
Activity in Montevideo was limited.
Fleece Wools Graded 56/58s staple and
good French combing wool sold at $1.08 while
50/56s staple fleeces brought $1.05 clean
basis. Graded 56/58s baby combing fleece
wool sold around $1.03-1.04 while mixed 3/8s
and 1/4 blood clothing wool brought $1.03
and burry medium grade staple and good French
combing fleeces moved around $1.00-1.02
clean.
The Maryland pool of 65,000 pounds of
bulk medium wools sold as follows: Fine and
1/2 blood at 48.770, 5/8s, 1/4 and low 1/4
blood sold at 58.77#; medium grade clothing
wool at 55.770; medium rejects at 50.770, and
tags at 10.77#. The New Jersey pool of
61,000 pounds brought 58.153 for medium wools
while the Centre County pool in Pennsylvania
of 25,000 pounds brought 57.79f for medium
fleeces. All pool prices were f.o.b. ship-
ping point. Country buyers in Ohio were
paying 48-50f for medium wools while in
Missouri and Iowa, fine wool ranged from
59-424 and the medium wools from 47-48#. In
Indiana buyers paid 45-48# for mediums and
in Kentucky 50-553, but mostly 500, for all
medium grade wool.
Territory Wools Graded 56/58s staple
and good French combing wool sold at $1.08
clean basis in the spot market. In Washing-
ton the Colville pool of 14,648 pounds sold
recently at 435 for 3/8s and 1/4 blood wool;
the Colfax pool of 80,000 pounds of mixed
fleeces at 42.05# and in Oregon about 18,000
pounds of bulk 1/2 blood with some 3/8s
brought 45# f.o.b. Trading in other primary
areas was very dull.

in Texas at 91l- for adult and $1.211 for
(kid hair to the warehouse.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Normal supplies of all
classes of fresh meats were fully adequate at
Eastern Seaboard markets. Fairly active trad-
ing and moderately broad demand for most meats
made for good clearance at all markets except
New York. At that market, demand for beef
improved markedly following dullness on the
initial session, with chain buyers most ag-
gressive but activity for other meats was gener-
ally slow. Some calf was carried over at New
York, several lots of pork loins were sent to
freezers, and around 10 cars of lamb were unsold
late.
Compared with the previous week: Steer
beef generally steady; cow beef mostly steady
but prices at Philadelphia advanced 500-$1.00;
veal steady to $2,00 lower, mostly $1.00-2.00
off; calf $1.00 t: mostly $2.00 lower at New
York. Lamb prices declined $1.00-3.00, bulk
late sales at the full decline. Pork loins
closed $1.00-4.CX lower; other pork cuts sold
mostly steady, instances $1.00 higher on Boston
butts at Philadelphia and New York, and spare-
ribs advanced $2.00-5.00 at New York; fresh
skinned hams $1.00 lower. Kosher dressed steer
forequarters and related wholesale cuts sold
steady. Kosher spring lamb closed steady as
early upturns of $1.00-2.00 were erased after
midweek; kosher veal and calf weak.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef and fresh
pork supply normal, veal and spring lamb moder-
ate, all classes fully adequate for trade re-
quirements, and excessive in instances. Prime
beef relatively scarce, Good and Choice making
up the bulk. Spring lamb 35-55# predominated
in the lamb division. Steer and heifer car-
casses and forequarters sold in a slow trade
except chucks which met fair demand late. Hind-
quarters enjoyed best clearance, volume accounts
absorbing the bulk. Veal declined for the
second straight week in a dull trade. Rather
limited activity on spring lamb, however most
cute cleared well till midweek when movement
slowed. Outlets were narrow for pork loins with
downturns recorded on each session. Boston butts
and spareribs sold fairly active. Compared to
the previous Friday: Steer and heifer beef
steady to 50# higher; veal fully $1.00 lower;
spring lamb $1.00-2.00 lower; pork loins $2.50-
3.00 lower; Boston butts steady; spareribs 500-
$1.00 higher.

PACIFIC COAST Steer beef was in rather
liberal supply at most points on the West Coast
and somewhat exceeding a rather slow movement.
Cow beef was moderate but adequate at Los Angelesp
and fairly liberal elsewhere. Volume of calf and
veal above normal and excessive for 1;c' demand.


Large shipments of spring lamb to the East
Coast left local supplies normal and clearance
was generally complete. Fresh and cured pork
was liberal at Los Angeles with trading slow,
supplies elsewhere were moderate, but adequate
for a fair demand. Steer beef sold steady to
$1.00 lower, the decline mainly at Los Angeles;
cow beef steady at Los Angeles and weak to
$2.00 lower at Portland and San Francisco;
calf steady at Los Angeles and weak to $6.00
lower elsewhere; spring lamb steady to $1.00
lower; fresh pork loins steady to $2.00 lower;
other fresh and cured pork steady to $1.00
lower, the decline mainly in the Pacific North-
west; lard mostly steady.
