MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slajpbter cattle prices declined for the
third consecutive week as continued price de-
clines in the wholesale dressed trade influenced
a bearish demand at the live level. Salable re-
ceipts at the 12 markets totaled 212,000 head or
slightly more than the previous week and about
2 percent more than a year earlier. Slaughter
steers and heifers closed generally steady to
500 lower, cows 500-$1.50 lower; stockers and
feeders slow, steady to $1.00 lower. Trading
on barrows and gilts was very uneven with prices
steady to fully 250 lower at most points, sows
generally steady to 500 higher. Spring slaugh-
ter lambs were steady to 50 lower at Chicago,
Denver and St. Louis with prices at other leading
terminals steady to 500 higher and 500-$1.00 up
at Fort Worth. In the Interior Iowa-Southern
Minnesota area spring slaughter lambs sold
mostly steady, instances 50 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Cattle re-
ceipts at the 12 major terminal markets were
only slightly increased over the previous week.
Slaughter steers and heifers sold on a lower
basis for the third consecutive week as a con-
tinued slow movement of steer and heifer beef at
major wholesale dressed meat centers retarded
live trading. Slaughter steers and heifers were
generally steady to 500 lower, although St.
Joseph showed a strong to 500 higher trend.
St. Paul and St. Louis had a 50 to $1.00 lower
trend on Utility and Standard steers and heifers.
The average cost of slaughter steers continued
to decline and at Chicago fell to $24.88, the
lowest average since November, 1957. Increased
supplies of cows, including some from western
ranges and sharply lower carcass prices influ-
enced a 500 to $1.50 lower trend. An additional
factor in the cow trade was the increased volume
of foreign cow beef imports the past week. Bulls
were steady to $1.00 lower. Vealers sold
$1.00 lower at St. Paul with $28.00 paid for a
few high Choice while St. Louis showed a $2.00-
3.00 lower trend. Slaughter steers and heifers
made up the bulk of the receipts at most termi-
nals with Good and Choice grades predominating.
Prime steers made up 5 percent of the supply at
Chicago, but were scarce at other points. At 7
markets the average weight of slaughter steers
was 6# lighter at 1116# and the average cost was
$23.97.
Loadlots of high-Choice and mixed Choice and
Prime steers at Chicago sold at $25.50-27.50,and
a few consignments elsewhere brought $25.00-26.50
A load of high-Prime 1228# steers sold at $29.50
in Chicago. Bulk of the Good to average-Choice
steers over the midwest area sold at $21.00-
25.25 with most Good and low-Choice from $21.50-
24.50. Utility and Standard steers brought
$16.00-21.00. Mixed Choice and Prime slaughter


heifers sold from $24.75-25.75, bulk Choice
$23.50-25.00, Good and low-Choice $20.50-24.00,
and Standard and low-Good $17.00-21.25. Utility
and Commercial cows sold largely from $13.50-
16.50 and Canners and Cutters mainly $12.00-
14.75.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Receipts of stocker and feeder cattle and calves
at terminal markets were little different in
volume than the previous week. Quality as a
whole continued at a relatively low level with
Medium and Good grades making up a large percent
of supplies. High Good and Choice offerings
were slightly more plentiful than the previous
week, but very few were above low-Choice in grade.
Overall quality, as usually is the case at this
time of year, was well below that which normally
is seen during the fall months of heavy market-
ings. A major factor influencing a restricted
and bearish demand was the continued decline in
slaughter cattle prices. Stocker and feeder
buyers generally were inclined to proceed very
cautiously in the face of the persistent downward
pressure on beef cattle and as a result trading
was slow at prices unevenly steady to $1.00 lower.
The additional downturns following those of
earlier this month found many cattle selling
$5.00 to $6.00 per cwt. lower than the same week
a year ago.
Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers sold
from $20.75-24.40. A few Choice 800# brought
$25.00, but relatively few steers 950# up ex-
ceeded $23.50. Medium and low-Good feeders
ranged $18.00-21.00. Choice 615# stock steers
brought $26.50, Choice 524# $27.00; majority
Good and Choice 500-700# stockers $21.50-26.00,
Medium and low-Good $18.00-22.50. Good and
Choice 500-75Q0# heifers sold from $19.00-24.25,
including three load string Choice 700# at
$23.75. Load lots Choice calves were few and far
between. Good and Choice steer calves mostly
$23.00-28.00, same grades heifer calves $20.00-
26.75. At Indianapolis Choice 390# steers
brought $30.00. A few Medium and Good stock cows
sold from $15.50-16.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Salable receipts
at the 12 markets totaled 274,000 head or 7
percent more than the previous week, but 12 per-
cent less than a year ago, as receipts continued
to run less than during the summer months of
1959. Consignments of mixed U. S. No. 1,2 and
3 and lots No. 2 and 3 190-260# offerings made
up the bulk of the barrows and gilts, however,
weights over 250# were in small numbers at many
points. The average weight of all barrows and
gilts at the 8 markets was 226#, compared 229#
the previous week and 219# one year ago. Sows
comprised 55 percent of the run at Sioux Falls








and 7-28 percent at the other points. Price
trends on barrows and gilts were uneven over the
area, but generally moved lower in response to
a generally lower wholesale trade. Barrows and
gilts closed steady to fully 250 lower at most
markets but finished steady to 250 higher at
Chicago and St. Paul. Sows usually found a de-
pendable outlet and prices in general were
steady to 500 higher, except steady to 250 low-
er at Indianapolis and St. Louis.
At the close, U. S. No. 1 and mixed U. S.
1-2, 190-240# barrows and gilts brought $18.25-
19.00, largely $18.50-18.75. Mixed U.S. 1-3
and U.S. 2-3, 190-250# bulked at $18.00-18.50,
with weights up to 270# falling within that
price range at Chicago. U. S. 1-3, 270-600Q?
sows sold largely from $13.75-16.75, few U. S.
1-2, 270-300!i $17.00-17.25.
Feeder pigs were steady at Sioux City and
St. Paul. Medium and Good 130-160# feeder pigs
sold at Sioux City from $16.50-17.00, while
mostly Good same weights at St. Paul brought
$16.50-17.00.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Salable receipts totaled 276,000 head,
compared 263,000 the previous week and 329,000
one year ago. Marketing was rather liberal
early in the week as higher prices and some rain-
fall, which retarded field work, stimulated
selling, but the movement slowed later under the
influence of hot, dry weather and lower prices
Tuesday through Thursday. Demand as a general
rule was moderate, but by some individual buyers
rather poor. Prices strengthened Friday and at
the close butchers were mostly 100 higher; sows
steady to 100 higher. On Friday, U. S. No. 1-3
butchers 190-240# brought $17.15-18.00, a moder-
ate volume mostly No. 1 and 2 $17.75-18.25, few
No. 1 $18.50. No. 1 to 3 270-400c sows sold from
$14.20-16.40; 400-550# $12.70-14.90.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Salable receipts at the
12 markets totaled 71,000 head or 17 percent
more than the previous week but 6 percent fewer
than a year ago. Continued price declines in
the wholesale dressed lamb trade and the ex-
panded slaughter lamb receipts had a bearish
influence on the live trade. Spring slaughter
lambs closed steady to 500 lower at Chicago,
Denver and St. Louis with prices at other leading
terminals steady to 500 higher and 500-$1.00 up
at Fort Worth. Old crop lambs and yearlings were
in limited supply. Prices were 750 lower at
Kansas City, but 500-?1.00 higher at Fort Worth.
Slaughter ewes were steady to 500 lower; feeder
lambs steady to 500 lower, instances 750-$1.00
off.
Choice and Prime 85-11C. spring slaughter
lambs closed at $18.50-20.00 sparingly '20.50-
21.00, latter price at Chicago; part deck
Choice and Prime 90/ reached $22.00 at Chicago
on Thursday. Good and Choice spring lambs
brought $17.00-19.50, Utility and Good $14.00-
18.00. Good and Choice 96-120# shorn old crop


slaughter lambs and yearlings with No. 1 pelts
brought $13.00-15.25, few to $16.50; Cull and
Utility yearlings $8.00-15.00 at Fort Worth.
Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes sold from
$2.50-5.00, few $5.75.

sold from $15.00-17.50, including Choice 65-86#
feeders at $17.00-17.50; Medium and Good feed-
ers brought $12.00-15.00 and Good anq Choice 56-
62# western feeders brought $18.00 at Sioux
Falls early in the week.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area, spring slaughter lambs were mostly
steady, instances 500 higher on Choice and Prime.
Slaughter yearlings were weak; slaughter ewes
weak to 50 lower. Receipts were 20 percent
larger than the previous week,but 5 percent
fewer than a year ago. On Friday, Choice and
Prime 85-105# spring slaughter lambs delivered
to packing plants brought $17.50-18.50, a few
Prime lots $19.00; Good and low-Choice $16.00-
17.50. Good and Choice 100-115# shorn slaugh-
ter yearlings with No. 1 pelts brought $12.00-
14.00, few to $15.00; Utility and Good $10.00-
12.00. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes
$2.00-4.00, few $4.50-5.00.

BOSTON WOOL

Trading in the Boston wool market was dull
with very little greasy domestic combing wools
moved. There was a fair demand for fine and
half-blood grades and prices held about steady.
Trading for woolen wools and noils was slow and
about steady. Occasional sales of 12 months
wools were made in Texas. A substantial volume
of original bag clips was consigned to warehouses
in Utah, Colorado and California. Most medium
grade wools were cleaned up in the fleece wool
States.
Summer sales of crutchings started July 28
at Wanganui, New Zealand with a good selection
of crutchings and early shorn second shear wools
offered. The New Zealand and Australian carpet
mills were operating freely. The Australian
and Cape markets were closed for the season.
The first sale of the 1960-1961 selling season
in Australia will be held at Perth on August 2
and 53 The South American markets were dull.
Fleece Wools Graded 56/58s staple fleece
wool sold at $1.07 clean basis, while baby
combing 50/54s brought $1.03.
Territory Wools Approximately 135,000
pounds of bulk fine good French combing and
staple wool in original bags sold in Wyoming at
340 grease basis, f.o.b. Trading in the Boston
market was slow with a spot lot of greasy Cali-
fornia bulk 58s lambs wool sold at 850 clean
basis.
Texas Wools Occasional sales of 12 months
Texas wool brought $1.10-1.15, mostly $1.f0-
1.12 clean basis, delivered Boston. Approxi-
mately 300,000-400,000 pounds of 8 months wool
remained unsold in Texas.
Mohair Most handlers of mohair were
making deliveries of tops sold at an earlier
date. Trading for original bag hair in Texas
was very slow with little interest in contract-
ing the fall clip.
Foreign Wools Sales of spot foreign
wools were practically at a standstill. Cabled
reports from the New Zealand sale at Wanganui
showed prices of crutchings and early shorn
wools unchanged from the last sale.
Carpet Wools Trading in spot carpet wools
was dull. Greasy pulled spot Argentine carpet
wool sold at 740 while greasy pulled New Zealand
wool brought 735 clean basis. B. A. November
second clip carpet wools were sold for shipment
at 801-0 clean fibers present. Quotations from
Argentina were firm with November wools offered
at 81 and March wools around 735. Super white
Pakistan/India vicaneer wools were priced at
791 with super white Joria at 78 clean
fibers present for shipment. A report on the
Liverpool sale held July 15 showed prices 2
percent to 5 percent lower than the previous
auction.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD The wholesale fresh
meat trade was dull throughout the week. Below
normal sales tonnage, cost minus selling, and
constant pressure to clear available stocks
were depressing features in the week's trade.
Outlet on early sessions was generally slow,
but showed mild improvement after midweek.
Carryover of steer beef at New York was equiva-
lent to around a carlot at most establishments
and a small tonnage cow beef, while pork loins
were frozen for the second consecutive week.
Some veal and spring lamb were unsold at Wash-
ington. Supplies were mostly normal on the
Eastern Seaboard, except for slight reduction
of steer beef at Washington. Steer beef closed
steady to $2.00 lower, major portion 500-$1.00
lower; cow beef unevenly steady to $2.00 lower,
bulk declines at New York and Philadelphia;
veal weak to $3.00 lower, with least change at
Washington, and calf at New York $1.00-2.00
lower; lamb steady to $4.00 lower, with the
maximum decline at New York and Washington $1.00.
Pork loins weak to $3.00 lower, mostly $1.00-
2.00 down; other pork cuts steady to $2.00
higher, except fresh skinned hams at New York,
steady to $1.00 lower. Outlet was poor for
kosher meat and clearance incomplete on all
sessions. Choice and Prime kosher steer fore-
quarters were mainly $1.00-2.00 lower, spring
lamb $1.00-5.00 off.

CHICAGO Overall fresh meat supplies while
near normal were fully adequate to excessive for
trade requirements. Steer and heifer beef,
spring lamb and fresh pork supplies were normal,
and veal offerings moderate. Heifer beef repre-
sented only a small portion of the total beef
supply after Wednesday. Carcass cutting aver-
aged well below normal because of the poor move-
ment of primal cuts but the short supply of ribs
found normal outlet. All grades of veal were
lower in a dull trade. Spring lamb declined for
the third straight week sending prices to a new
low for the year; demand improved somewhat for
lamb legs but there was little call for fore-
quarter meat. Boston butts and spareribs scored
modest advance in a fairly active trade. Pork
loins on the other hand met a narrow demand.
For the week, steer and heifer beef held about
steady, veal $1.00 lower, spring lamb 50o-$1.00
lower, pork loins 8-16# $1.00-1.50 lower, Boston
butts steady to 50 higher, spareribs $1.00-1.50
higher.

PACIFIC COAST Steer 'eef continued in
liberal supply with some accumulations mainly
on Standard and low-Good carcasses at Los An-
geles. Trading was rather slow at all points
on the West Coast. Cow beef exceeded demaLnd as
the movement of foreign boneless cow beef imports
were considerably increased the past week. Calf


and veal were fully adequate to slightly liberal
and trading continued slow, Choice 150-200# calf
limited to odd carcasses at Los Angeles. Spring
lamb supplies were also more than adequate for
a poor demand and shipments to the Eastern Sea-
board were curtailed somewhat the past week.

LAMB CROP,. 1960

LAMB CROP 2 PERCENT LARGER The 1960 lamb crop totaled 21,584,000 head, 2 per-
cent larger than the 21,218,000 lambs produced in 1959 and 11 percent above the
1949-58 average, according to the Crop Reporting Board. The 13 Western sheep States
(11 Western States, South Dakota and Texas) produced 4 percent more lambs in 1960
than in 1959 and 12 percent more than average. The lamb crop in the 35 Native sheep
States is 2 percent smaller than last year but 10 percent above average. In Texas,
where approximately 15 percent of the Nation's lambs are produced, the 1960 crop is
5 percent above 1959 and 14 percent above average.
LAMBING PERCENTAGE DOWN The lamb crop percentage (number of lambs saved per
100 ewes, 1 year of age or older on farms and ranches January 1) this year is 95 which
is 1 point below last year but 3 points above the average. The Western States lambing
percentage at 90 is 1 point below last year, and the lambing percentage in the Native
States at 104 is 2 points below last year. The Texas lambing percentage at 79 com-
pares with 82 in 1959 and the average of 72.
The number of breeding ewes 1 year old and older on farms and ranches on Jan. 1,
1960 was 3 percent above 1959 and ewe lambs under 1 year old were 2 percent above
January 1, 1959.

WESTERN STATES The 1960 lamb crop in the 13 Western States totaled 13,810,000
head--4 percent above the 13,292,000 lambs saved in 1959 and 12 percent above average.
The number of breeding ewes 1 year old and older on farms and ranches on Jan. 1, 1960
was 5 percent above 1959. The number of early lambs (dropped before March 15) in the
Western States was 9 percent more than a year earlier.

NATIVE STATES The lamb crop at 7,774,000 head in the 35 Native sheep States
(all States except 13 Western States) is 2 percent below 1959, but 10 percent above
average. A small decline in the number of breeding ewes and a decrease in the lambing
percentage resulted in the smaller lamb crop. In the 35 Native States the lamb crop
was smaller in 18 States, unchanged in 7 States, and larger in 10 States.
