MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price declines on slaughter steers and
heifers more than erased the previous week's ad-
vance. Slaughter cows and slaughter lambs
closed lower for the second consecutive week.
Lower prices in the wholesale dressed trade was
a major contributing factor. However, higher
prices on dressed pork was a factor which influ-
enced some price strength for butchers at most
major terminals. The general trend for slaughter
steers and heifers was 500-$1.00 lower. Slaughter
cows closed mostly $1.00-1.50 lower. Price
trends on stockers and feeders were uneven with
sales generally steady to 500 lower. Barrows
and gilts closed steady to 250 higher except
steady to 250 lower at St. Louis, St. Joseph and
Indianapolis. Spring lambs sold mostly $1.50-
2.50 lower. Old crop lambs were mostly $1.00-
2.00 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Price ad-
vances of a week earlier on slaughter steers and
heifers were more than erased by a sharply low-
er trend at the major terminals during the week.
Slaughter steers were generally 250 to 750 low-
er with St. Paul mostly $1.00 lower and Chicago
showing declines of as much as $1.50. The aver-
age price of slaughter steers sold out of first
hands at 7 major markets was $24.47, lowest
since the first week in January. A decidedly
lower trend on carcass beef in the wholesale
meat trade narrowed the demand for slaughter
cattle. Consequently, even though receipts were
little changed from the liberal numbers a week
earlier, the supply was more than adequate for
the prevailing demand. Good to average-Choice
grades continued to predominate in the slaughter
steer and heifer supply with Choice offerings
comprising 72 percent of the steers at Chicago.
Slaughter heifers sold steady to $1.00 lower,
most terminals showing declines of 500-750. Cows
sold 500-$2.00 lower with declines of $1.00-1.50
rather general. Bulls were steady to 50 lower
for the most part. Vealers sold $1.00 lower in
St. Paul but mostly steady at St. Louis.

Prime and mixed Choice and Prime steers
sold from $26.50-30.00 in Chicago but only one
load reached $29.50 at midweek. A few loads
high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime steers
brought ?``.50-27.00 at other terminals while
bulk high-Good and Choice steers sold from
-0,.50-26.00, high-Choice to $26.75 in Chicago
at midweek. Good steers bulked at $21.00-24.00.
A few loads mixed Choice and Prime heifers sold
at $26.00-26.50 and a few loads Prime brought
??'.00-28.25 in Chicago. Good and low-Choice
heifers sold from $20.50-24.50; most Choice
".T75-P'.00. Utility and Commercial cows
bulked at '14.50-17.00, Canners and Cutters
$12.00-15.00.


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and calves
at terminal markets continued seasonally moderate.
Medium and Good grades made up a relatively large
percentage of the supply. Shipments of mixed Good
and Choice grades were in moderate supply but
volume of Choice was limited. Trading was gener-
ally slow and prices unevenly steady to 500 lower.
At Kansas City 800-1000# feeder steers were 500-
$1.00 lower while 500-750# steers sold steady to
weak. At Fort Worth and Oklahoma City, Common
and Medium grades were $1.00-$2.00 lower. Wheat
harvesting, hay cutting and other field work
kept some potential buyers away from market cen-
ters but the most important factor influencing
a bearish and restricted demand for stockers and
feeders was the continued downward trend in
slaughter cattle prices. The grazing season is
now far enough along that there is little of the
urgency for stockers which was evidenced at the
beginning of the new grass season.
A few Choice, fleshy 750-850# feeder steers
brought $25.50-26.25 and Choice fleshy 700#
reached $27.25. However, bulk Good and Choice
800-1050# steers sold from $22.00-25.25, Medium
and low-Good mostly $20.00-22.00, few Medium
$18.00. Good and Choice yearling stock steers
brought $23.00-28.00, load Choice 525# $29.50.
Medium and low-Good stockers brought $18.00-23.50.
Choice 485# short yearling heifers brought $27.50,
Choice 550# $26.25. Other Good and Choice year-
ling heifers sold from $19.00-26.00, majority
$21.00-25.50. Two loads Choice fleshy 800C
feeder heifers sold at $24.25-24.50. Good and
Choice steer calves sold from $24.00-31.00, most
sales $26.00-29.00. Good and Choice heifer
calves brought $21.00-27.50. At Fort Worth Good
927# stock cows brought $17.00.

HOGS Terminal markets Hog receipts at the 12
markets were 2 percent under the previous week
and 12 percent smaller than the corresponding
week a year earlier. Mixed No. 1-3 lots 200-270#
barrows and gilts predominated in the butcher
supply with weights under 200# relatively scarce
except at the eastern Corn Belt markets. Sows
made up 15 percent of the supply at the 8 markets
compared to 21 percent a year ago. Although
sorting of barrows and gilts was not general
there were many lots sorted for both grade and
weight. Price trends fluctuated considerably
over the area during the period under review.
Barrows and gilts closed steady to 25# higher
except steady to 250 lower at St. Louis, St.
Joseph and Indianapolis. Sows closed steady to
25# lower except steady to 250 higher at Indian-
apolis and 25-500 up at Chicago.
On Friday, U. S. 1 and mixed U.S.1-2,190-230#
barrows and gilts including many consignments
sorted for grade and weight sold at $17.00-18.25,









largely $17.25-17.75; mixed U. S. 1-3, and No.
2-3, 180-250# bulked at $16.75-17.50. Mixed U.
S. 1-5, 270-600# sows $12.75-15.75.
Feeder pig prices held steady at both Sioux
City and St. Paul. Medium and Good 130-160#
pigs at Sioux City sold at $16.00-16.50, few
$16.75. Good 130-160# feeders brought $15.50 to
mostly $16.00 at St. Paul.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S. No.
1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows and
gilts was 94# per cwt.based on wholesale carlot
prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago June 16 to
June 26, 1960,inclusive.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts were little changed from the
previous week, but about 10 percent below the
corresponding week last year. Barrows and gilts
closed 10-254 higher, sows mainly steady.
Mixed lots of U. S. 1-3, 190-240# butchers on
the close 416.30-17.10 with limited volume No.1

3, 270-400# sows $13.75-15.25, 400-550# $12.35-
14.15. Sows comprised around 15 percent of the
total receipts.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12 mar-
kets were 13 percent less than a week earlier
and 15 percent under a year ago. Spring
slaughter lambs predominated in the supply,.
Slaughter lamb prices were sharply lower for the
second week with the additional downturns influ-
enced by substantially lower wholesale dressed
lamb prices. Spring slaughter lambs were $1.50-
42.50 lower, instances $3.00-44.00 off; old
crop lambs and yearlings $1.00-42.00 lower,
extremes $2.50-53,00 off; slaughter ewes steady
to 500 lower, instances $1.00 off; feeder lambs
$1.00-1.50 lower except weak to 500 lower at
Sioux City.,
Choice and Prime 85-110# spring slaughter
lambs closed at $19.00-421.00,mostly $20.00-
$21.00, few Prime $21.50-$22.00 at Chicago; Good

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading was slow for greasy domestic
worsted wools in the Boston market with
prices about steady. Demand continued
good for medium grade fleeces but was very
limited for one-half blood wools. Woolen
wools were slow to move and practically no
interest in scoured shorn wools. Trading
was slow for pulled wools at unchanged
prices. There was little interest in noijs
and prices tended slightly easier.
The domestic primary markets were very
dull and greasy shorn wools in most parts
of the fleece wool States were out of the
growers hands. There were occasional
sales of original bag wools in Montana and
Wyoming and some 12 months and 8 months
wools sold in Texas.
The U. S. Department of Agriculture
announced on June 21 that shorn wool pay-
ments for the 1959 marketing year will
amount to 45.2 percent of the dollar re-
turns producers received from the sale of
shorn wool. This will result in an in-
centive payment to growers of $45.20 per
$100.00 received from the sale of shorn
wool during the marketing year.
Cabled reports from Australia at mid-.
week showed Japan and Continental buyers
the principal operators under restricted
competition with quotations par to 2-1 per-
cent lower. In Melbourne, a poor selection
was offered at about steady prices with
Japan and the Continent dominating. Greasy
Argentine carpet type wools were unchanre J
compared to a week ago while the Monte-
video market was dull and steady.
Fleece Wools Graded 60/62s good
French combing and staple wool sold around
$1.04 clean basis. Graded 56/58s staple
and good French combing wool brought $1.07-
1.08 clean basis while 50/56s staple fleeces
brought $1.05-1.06 and 50/56s baby combing
fleeces $1.02-1.05.
Country buyers were paying 38-40 for
fine and 48-500 for medium wools in Ohio
for the remaining unsold clips.
Territory Wools Original bag bulk
half-blood with some 3/8s and fine good
French combing and staple wool sold in
Wyoming around 400 grease basis to the
grower, while bulk 1/2 and 3/8s good
French combing and staple in original bags
sold at 52.900, grease basis, to the grower
in Montana.
Texas Wools Choice 12 months Texas
wool sold at $1.10-1.12 and average 12
months $1.07-1.10, while 8 months brought
$1.05-1.06 clean basis, delivered Boston.
Mohair A small quantity of mohair


sold in Texas at 9l1--924# for adult and
$1.2lf-1.22- for kid hair to the ware-
house. Practically all spring mohair is
now in the hands of dealers or sold for
shipment abroad.
Foreign Wools Interest in foreign
wools was very dull in the Boston market.
Cabled reports from Australia at week's
end showed little change in quotations
with some instances of prices in the
buyers' favor. Quotes follow with comb-
ing wools converted to clean U. S. oil-
combed yields, in bond.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Supplies of beef were
slightly below normal with veal and pork normal
and spring lamb excessive at Eastern Seaboard
markets. Moderately reduced receipts of spring
lamb were supplemented by carryover ranging
from small to liberal at most markets. Demand
was generally poor for carcasses and cuts.
Several cars of lamb were carried at New York
again this week and clearance was incomplete at
other points. Trading on beef and pork was
slow at the outset but active on the close with
demand moderately broad, and clearance fairly
complete for both classes. Veal and calf move-
ment was slow under rather poor demand and some
was carried at New York, predominately calf.
Improved demand for beef was partially influenced
by lower prices for carcasses and wholesale cuts.
Compared with previous week: Steer beef
weak to $1.00 lower at Washington and Baltimore,
steady to 50 higher at Philadelphia, steady
elsewhere. Cow beef was 500 higher at New York
but prices declined $1.00-1.50 at Philadelphia,
otherwise steady. Veal and calf $1.00-4.00
lower. Spring lamb prices were weak to $4.00
lower with most late sales at the full decline.
Pork loins closed $1.00-3.00 higher at New York,
weak to $2.00 lower at Baltimore and steady at
other markets. Other pork cuts sold steady to
$1.00 higher. Kosher steer beef, veal and calf
declined $1.00-2.00 and kosher spring lamb
prices were $2.00-5.00 lower, most late sales
$4.00-5.00 off.

CHICAGO Good and Choice grades predomi-
nated in normal beef supplies with Prime scarce.
Veal and fresh pork supplies were rather small.
Moderate spring lamb receipts consisted prima-
rily of 35-55# offerings. Steer and heifer beef
declined on Monday with prices little changed
thereafter. Trading was rather slow on beef
carcasses, chucks and rounds. Most interests
were active in the beef rib and loin trade, with
fabricated loin cuts moving exceptionally well.
Veal trade was generally slow but clearance good.
Trading on spring lamb was dull. Outlets were
adequate for all cuts except legs on early
sessions, however, late demand was confined
mostly to ribs and loins. Most fresh pork cuts
sold higher under a fair demand and reduced sup-
plies. Steer and heifer beef sold steady to
$1.00 lower; veal unchanged; spring lamb $3.00-
4.00 lower; pork loins $2.00-3.50 higher; Boston
butts $1.00 higher; spareribs fully steady to
$1.00 higher.

PACIFIC COAST The supply of beef was more
than -ideauLte for a rather limited demand. Clos-
ing of schools for the summer and unseasonal
warm weather in California tended to reduce


outlet. Liberal volume of calf and veal was
more than adequate for a poor demand. Spring
lamb was moderate but fully adequate. Trading
on fresh and cured pork cuts was slow with
clearance incomplete at Los Angeles. Beef
prices were weak to $1.00 lower; calf and veal
steady at Los Angeles and $1.00-2.00 lower
elsewhere; spring lamb $1.00-2.00 lower; fresh
pork steady to $1.00 higher in the Pacific
Northwest, mostly steady in Califormia, in-
stances $2.00 lower for fresh pork loins and
spareribs at Los Angeles; smoked skinned hams
and sliced bacon steady to $1.00 higher in
the Pacific Northwest, mostly steady in Cali-
fornia except smoked skinned hams $1.00 lower
at Los Angeles.

PIG CROP REPORT JUNE 1960


The 1960 spring pig crop totaled 49,303,000 head, down 16 percent from the spring crop of 1959,
accorninr to the Crop Reporting Board. The number of sows farrowing during the spring months totaled
7,060,000, 15 percent below the spring of 1959. The number of pigs saved per litter was 6.95, com-
pared with 7.07 for the spring of 1959. Reports on breeding intentions indicate that 5,889,000 sows
will farrow between June 1 and December 1 this year. This would be a drop of 4 percent from the
6,138,000 litters during the fall months of 1959. If these farrowing intentions are carried out ana
if the number of pigs saved per litter is equal to the average, with an allowance for upward trend,
the 1960 fall pig crop will be 41.5 million head. The combined spring and fall pig crops for 1960
would then be 90.6 million head, down 11 percent from the 1959 pig crop and 1 percent below the 1949-
58 average.
The number of hogs 6 months old and older on farms and ranches June 1 was 7 percent less than
the corresponding date a year ago.
This report is based on a survey of 169,000 farms and ranches. The survey data, were obtained
largely in cooperation with the Post Office Department through rural mail carriers.

Spring Pig Crop down 16 percent
The number of pigs saved in the spring of 1960 (December 1959 through May 1960) is estimated at
49,103,000 head. This is 16 percent below the 1959 spring pig crop of 58,578,000 head, and 10 percent
below the 1949-58 average.
The 1960 spring crop was smaller than a year earlier in all regions. A sharp decrease of 19 per-
cent occurred in the West North Central region. Other regions decreased as follows: North Atlantic,
1 percent; East North Central, 12 percent; South Atlantic, South Central, and West, each 16 percent.
Except for the South Atlantic region, the spring pig crop was below the 1949-58 average.
Sows farrowed in the spring of 1960 totaled 7,060,000 head, 15 percent less than the previous
spring and 13 percent below average. Farrowings this spring were down 3 percent from breeding inten-
tions as reported last December, with all regions showing fewer farrowings than intended. The per-
centages by regions that the 1960 spring sows farrowed were of 1959 compared with the intentions as
reported last December are as follows: North Atlantic, 100 percent now, 102 percent in December;
East North Central, 89 and 91; West North Central, 82 and 85; South Atlantic, 86 and 91; South Central,
87 and 91; and West, 86 and 93 percent.
Pigs saved per litter this spring averaged 6.95 compared with 7.07 pigs saved last spring. The
10-year average is 6.76 pigs. All regions show a smaller number of pigs per litter than in 1959, but
litter sizes were above the 1949-58 average.
The trend toward a greater percentage of farrowings during the first quarter (December through
February), evident in the previous 11 years, was reversed in the 1960 spring season. The December-
February quarter accounted for 37.4 percent of the spring farrowings compared with 58.5 percent a
year earlier, however, a larger percent of total farrowings occurred in December this year than the
previous year. By months, the percentage of the farrowings this spring compared with the spring of
1959 are as follows: December 1959, 7.4 percent compared with 6.8 in December 1958; January 1960,
11.4 percent compared with 12.5 percent in January 1959; February, 18.6 percent compared with 19.2;
March, 25.1 and 25.6; April 23.4 and 22.9; and May, 14.1 and 15.0 percent.

1960 Fall Intentions down 4 percent
Reports on breeding intentions indicate that 5,889,000 sows will farrow during June through
November of 1960. If these intentions are realized, the number of sows farrowing this fall will be
4 percent less than farrowings during the fall of 1959, but 9 percent more than the average. Compared
with last year, all regions showed decreases in the number of sows intended for fall farrowing. The
largest percent decrease is reported in the South Atlantic which is down 9 percent. The South Central
and the West each show an 8 percent decrease. The East North Central is down 5 percent, the North
Atlantic down 3 percent, and the West North Central down 1 percent.
These changes from last year are based on breeding intentions reported by farmers about June 1.
If fall farrowing intentions materialize and the number of pigs saved per litter equals the aver-
age, with an allowance for upward trend, the 1960 fall pig crop will be about 41,500,000 head. This
would be 3 percent below 1959, but 14 percent above the 10.-year average. The combined pig crop for 1960
would be about 90,603,000 head, 11 percent below last year, and 1 percent below average.

Hogs over 6 months on farms June 1 down 7 percent
The number of hogs over 6 months old (including sows) on farms June 1, was 15,559,000 head, a
decrease of 7 percent from the 16,643,000 head on hand a year earlier. The lower inventory reflects
the decrease in breeding stock held for 1960 farrowings and the relatively heavy marketing since
January 1. Total commercial hog slaughter January through April 1960 was 5 percent above a year
earlier.
