MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Salable receipts of all classes at the 12
markets were substantially larger than the
previous holiday shortened week with cattle re-
ceipts largest since mid-January. Price de-
clines were recorded on slaughter steers and
heifers and spring slaughter lambs under influ-
ence of the liberal marketing and substantial
price downturns in the dressed trade. Slaughter
steers and heifers closed generally steady to
750 lower with average-Choice and Prime steers
over 1201V $1.00-1.50 off at Chicago. Slaughter
cows sold steady to 500 higher as upturns on
dressed cow beef offset the effect of increased
supplies. Stockers and feeders were steady.
Barrows and gilts closed steady to 500 lower at
terminals, but 25-400 higher in the Interior.
Spring slaughter lambs were $1.00-2.50 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Increased
receipts and lower prices for carcass steer and
heifer beef at major wholesale meat centers had
a decidedly bearish influence on slaughter steer
and heifer prices at most terminals. Moderate
upturns on steers and heifers Monday were more
than erased on later sessions, as receipts con-
tinued large. Receipts at the 12 markets were
the largest since mid-January and 54 percent
greater than the holiday shortened period a week
earlier. Omaha received the largest volume for
any July week since 1956. Most weights and
grades of slaughter steers shared in the general
price decline, but steer yearlings 1150# and be-
low and steers grading Utility and Standard
showed the least decline in most cases.Greatest
price declines were recorded on liberal market-
ings of Choice steers 1250# and heavier and the
small volume of Prime. Steers were generally
steady to 750 lower with some as much as $1.00
lower in St. Paul and Choice and Prime over
1250# were $1.00-1.50 off in Chicago. Weight
was more a price determining factor than during
the past several weeks. Slaughter heifers sold
steady to 750 lower. Cows closed steady to 50
higher; bulls mostly steady. Good and Choice
slaughter steers and heifers comprised the bulk
of the receipts. The number of slaughter steers
sold out of first hands at the 7 markets totaled
96,376 head, largest for any week since January
and 14,600 head above the corresponding week
last year. Vealers sold steady to $1.00 lower
in St. Paul and mostly steady at St. Louis.
At Chicago, high-Choice and mixed Choice
and Prime slaughter steers brought $26.00-28.50,

Canners and Cutters $13.00-15.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Shipments of stocker and feeder steers and calves
at the 10 markets totaled 28,450 head compared
19,900 last week and 29,050 the corresponding
week one year earlier. The supply was largely
Medium and Good with a moderate volume of Choice.
Farm activity progressed rapidly during a com-
paratively dry period, and south of the Nebraska-
Kansas line wheat harvest had nearly reached com-
pletion and much of the corn had been laid by.
Common and Medium stocker steers and all heifers
were relatively slow. However, Good and Choice
steers found dependable outlets. Prices were
mostly steady except instances 500 higher on
Good and Choice yearling steers at Kansas City
and other southwest points. However, at St.Paul
a 500-$1.00 lower trend prevailed.
Good and Choice feeder steers ranged largely
$22.00-25.00, load Choice 900# $26.00 at Chicago
and load Choice 816# $25.65 at Kansas City.
Medium and Good brought $18.50-23.00; Common
$16.00-18.50. Few Choice yearling steers mostly
500-600# sold from $26.00-26.50, bulk Good and
Choice $22.50-25.50; Medium and Good lots
$18.50-23.00; some Common yearlings $14.00-
16.00. Numerous loads Good and Choice 725-775#
feeding heifers sold at Sioux City from $22.25-
23.50, few loads 700-75('- at Denver $24.00-
24.50. Bulk Good and Choice stocker and feeder
heifers brought $20.50-24.50, load 550# $25.00
at Sioux City. Medium and Good heifers brought
$17.00-21.00. Good and Choice stocker steer
calves sold from $23.00-30.00, liberal share
$25.00-28.50, small lot Choice E6, $30.35 at
Kansas City, and load mixed 290. $32.75 at Den-
ver. Small showing Good and Choice heifer
calves brought $21.00-25.50. Common, Medium
and Good stock cows were steady at $12.50-16.00.

HOGS Terminal markets Marketings of
hogs expanded 335 percent over the previous holi-
day shortened week, but continued to drop under
the same week a year ago, being 8 percent under
last year. Mixed U. S. No. 1-3 and lots No. 2-
3 200-27C( barrows and gilts comprised the bulk
of the butcher supply. However, 180-200C hops
are now beginning to arrive in noticeable volume
at some of the western Corn Belt markets and the
average weight of barrows and gilts at the 8
markets was 228#. This was L5 lighter than the
previous week, but 8# heavier than the corre-
sponding week last year. It appears that sow
receipts are now beginnirg to approach the
season's peak, that class made up 17 percent at
the 8 markets compared 18 percent the previous


534








week and 19 percent the same week one year
earlier. Although dressed pork prices were
higher, live prices failed to respond, in fact,
some declines were recorded. Daily price
changes were usually minor with a moderate re-
covery late. Barrows and gilts closed steady to
500 lower with many of the markets in the
western area of the Corn Belt steady to 250
lower. Sows were steady to 250 off.
At the close U. S. No. 1 and 1-2, usually
190-2530# barrows and gilts but including some
lots up to 250# brought $18.00-18.50. Mixed U.
S. 1-3 and U. S. 2-3, 180-250# sold from $17.25-
18.00, mainly $17.50-18.00. U. S. 1-3, 270-600#
sows bulked at $13.00-16.00, some U. S. 1-2,
around 270-300# brought $16.25-16.50.
Prices on feeder pigs remained steady at
both St. Paul and Sioux City. Medium and Good
130-170# feeder pigs at Sioux City sold at
$16.00-16.50, Good and Choice $16.50-17.50.
Mostly Good 150-160# offerings at St. Paul
brought $16.00-16.50.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts were substantially larger than
the holiday shortened period the previous week
but slightly smaller than the corresponding
period last year. A good demand, influenced
somewhat by higher wholesale pork prices, re-
sulted in some upturns for slaughter hogs. Com-
pared to the previous Friday, closing prices for
butchers were 25-40* higher while sows were 100
higher. On Friday, U. S. No. 1-3 butchers 190-
240# brought $16.80-17.50, a moderate volume
No. 1 and 2 selected lots $17.50-17.85. No.1-3
270-400# sows brought $13.60-15.50; 400-550#
$12.25-14.25. Sows made up fully 18 percent of
the total receipts.

SHEEP AND LAMBS The 12 market receipts
were the largest in four weeks, around 40 per-
cent more than the holiday shortened supply last
week, and 20 percent over the corresponding week
last year. Increased slaughter lamb supplies
and declining carcass prices at wholesale meat
centers were major factors influencing the live
market to close considerably under the previous
week. Spring lambs closed $1.00-2.00 lower,
extremes $2.50 off, while shorn old crop lambs
and yearlings were $1.00-2.00 off. Shorn slaugh-
ter ewes sold steady to weak with instances 50f
lower; feeder lambs steady to $1.00 lower, ex-
cept 25-41.00 higher at Denver and Fort Worth,
respectively.
Choice and Prime 80-105# spring slaughter
lambs sold late at $19.00-20.50, a few to $21.50,
and early in the week comparable lambs brought
$20.50-22.50 and reached $23.00 at Chicago. Good
and Choice spring slaughter lambs sold from
$16.50-21.00 with most late sales $16.50-19.00;
Utility and Good $14.50-17.00. Good and Choice
92-121# old crop lambs and yearlings with No. 2
to fall shorn pelts sold around mid-week and
later from $15.00-18.00, Utility and Good old
crop lambs brought $10.00-14.00. Cull to Choice
shorn slaughter ewes sold from $3.00-6.50,
mostly $3.00-5.00.


Good and Choice 50-82# spring feeder lambs
brought $15.00-17.50 with a few mostly Choice
lots to $18.00. At Sioux City two consirrnpnts
sold at $18.V-18.50 and several loads 7E.-8,'
western feeders brought $18.50-19.50 at Sioux
Falls. Medium and Good feeders sold from $14.00
-16.00 over the midwest with comparable grades
at Fort Worth $12.00-14.00.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area, receipts were 27 percent larger than last
week and around 45 percent more than the corre-
sponding week last year. Prices on spring
slaughter lambs declined on each session and
closed $1.00-2.00 lower, mostly $1.50 off;other
classes were about steady. Choice and Prime
80-105# spring slaughter lambs delivered to
packing plants at the close brought from $18.00-
19.00 and a few high-yielding lots reached
$19.50; Good and low-Choice $17.00-18.00; few
Good 75-85# lots $16.50-17.50.
During the week a few small lots Good and
Choice old crop lambs and yearlings with No. 1
and 2 pelts brought $14.00-16.50; Utility
$11.00-12.00. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Trading on veal and pork
cuts was active. Normal supplies were adequate
at Washington, but reduced inshipments of veal
at other markets a bit short for prevailing out-
let, while slightly below normal pork supplies
at New York and Philadelphia amply satisfied
current moderate demand and loins were under
pressure at the close, notably at Philadelphia
where some were unsold late. Supplies of beef
and spring lamb were mostly normal. Trading on
beef and spring lamb was moderately active,
with demand generally fair and good clearance
at most markets. Some lamb carried at New York
along with a small volume of beef hinds and
ribs unsold at Philadelphia.
Steer beef closed steady to 50# lower at
Washington, with Choice $1.00 lower at New York
and Good 50# off. The trend at other markets
was steady to $1.00 higher; cow beef steady to
50# lower at New York, $1.00-1.50 higher at
Philadelphia, steady at other markets. Veal
sold steady to weak at Baltimore, but otherwise
steady to $4.00 higher, the full upturn at New
York where calf sold steady to $1.00 higher.
Spring lamb prices were steady to $3.00 lower
with bulk at New York $1.00-3.00 off. Pork
loins closed weak to $1.00 lower at Philadelphia
as early advance was fully erased, but at other
markets loins closed steady to $2.00 higher.
Other pork cuts mostly steady except at Washing-
ton where Boston butts advanced $2.00-3.00 and
spareribs $1.00-2.00. Kosher steer beef was
around $1.00 lower, kosher spring lamb closed
steady as early upturns were erased late.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef and spring
lamb supplies were moderate with beef consisting
primarily of Good and Choice. Spring lamb car-
casses comprised largely of 30-55# weights. Veal
and fresh pork supplies were below normal. Trad-
ing was only moderately active for carcass beef
in local wholesale houses with prices following
a lower trend. A fair demand prevailed for
chucks and rounds early, but price declines were
recorded after midweek in a slow trade. Addition-
al fabricating kept loins moving well while ribs
were slow and worked lower. Demand was moderate
for all grades of veal at firm prices due mainly
to small offerings. Sharp price declines on
lamb erased the upturns of the past couple of
weeks with trading only moderately active. Loins
and ribs sold best of primal lamb cuts, with
legs dull. Outlets were fairly broad for fresh
pork cuts, loins advancing to their highest
level since June 16th last year, while Boston
butts sold higher than anytime since Dec. 18,
1958. Steer and heifer beef closed 50-1.00
lower; veal unchanged; spring lamb $1.50-2.50
lower; pork loins $1.00-2.00 higher; Boston butts
$1.00 higher; spareribs steady to $1.00 higher.


PACIFIC COAST Steer beef supplies were
fully adequate for a fair demand at all points,
except Choice 500-600# carcasses limited at
Los Angeles and 700-800# in the Pacific North-
west. Supply of heifer beef was below normal
while cow beef was fully adequate for a con-
tinued fair demand. Calf and veal supplies
were about normal although 200-300# calf car-
casses comprised bulk of offerings in Los An-
geles. Spring lamb supplies were moderate at
Los Angeles but rather liberal at Portland and
San Francisco. Trading was generally slow,
except fair at Los Angeles. Fresh pork cuts
were limited and inadequate for a good demand
while smoked meats were more than adequate for
poor outlets. Beef closed about steady; calf
and veal mostly steady, except $1.00-4.00 higher
at San Francisco; spring lamb mostly steady,
instances $1.00 lower on Choice and Prime
45-55# carcasses at Los Angeles; fresh pork
loins $2.00-6.00 higher; other fresh pork cuts
strong to $2.00 higher except instances $1.00
lower on spareribs at Los Angeles; cured pork
and lard mostly steady.

CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

MIDWEST CARLOT DRESSED MEAT SUMMARY -
General price declines were recorded on steer
and heifer beef under a limited demand and
slightly above normal supplies with clearance
incomplete at several centers. A good demand
for below normal supply of cow beef resulted in
complete clearance this class. Supply of lamb

$2.00 up. Spring lamb carcasses 500-$2.50
lower, mostly $2.00-2.50 off. Pork loins closed
50#-$1.50 higher; fresh skinned hams 500-$1.00
higher; butts mostly $1.00 higher. Hog sides
mostly 504 higher.
Choice 600-700# steer beef brought $40.00-
41.00; 700-800# $39.25-40.50; Good 600-800#
$38.00-39.75; Choice 500-700# heifer beef

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading for greasy domestic worsted wools
in the Boston market was very limited as most
mills remained closed for the vacation period.
There were a few sales of scoured pulled wools
although demand was generally poor and prices
slightly easier. Noils were slow to move at
about unchanged prices. Activity in the do-
mestic primary areas was slow. There were oc-
casional sales of 12 months wools in Texas at
firm prices, while little was done in the
territory States.
Sales in Australia terminated at Newcastle
and Auckland on July 14, prices opened some-
what easier, but closed firm with a fair se-
lection of wools offered. The Continent and
local mills were the principal operators with
Japan and England offering moderate support.
Prices in New Zealand and South Africa were
unchanged, while coarse B.A. wools were slight-
ly firmer and Montevideo mostly unchanged.
Fleece Wools Demand continued good for
limited offerings of fleece quarter-blood
wools in the Boston market. A moderate amount
of graded short French combing 64s fleece wool
brought 98-990 clean basis, delivered East.
Graded fine delaine wool brought around $1.10-
1.12 clean basis, delivered. Practically all
wool in the fleece wool States had been sold
or shipped to warehouses.
Territory Wools A substantial volume of
medium to fine original bag wool sold in Montana
from 39-440 grease basis, f.o.b. Approximately
25,000# original bag bulk fine wool sold in
Wyoming at 380 in the grease and about 12,000#
at 40o f.o.b. was estimated to cost clean
around $1.05, delivered East.
Texas Wools There were occasional sales
of 12 months wool in Texas around $1.10-1.12
for staple and good French combing length while
odd lots of 8 months wool brought $1.05-1.07
clean basis, delivered East.
Mohair Trading in the local market was
slow as dealers were making deliveries of
previous sales.
Foreign Wools Trade in spot foreign
wools was very limited. All Dominion markets
are now closed until late August and early
September. Latest quotations follow on comb-
ing wools converted to clean U. S. oil-combed
yields, in bond.

CATTLE AND CALVES ON FEED JULY 1, 1960


CATTLE ON FEED IN 26 STATES Cattle and calves on feed for market in 26 major feeding
States totaled 5,576,000 head on July 1, 1960, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This
number was 16 percent less than the 6,649,000 on feed in these States on April 1, and compares
with 7,206,000 on January 1.

FEEDING UP 4 PERCENT OVER 1959 in 21 STATES In the 21 States for which comparable 1959
data are available, a total of 5,376,000 head were on feed July 1--4 percent more than the
5,169,000 head on feed a year earlier. Larger numbers on feed July 1 were shown for 14 States,
1 State was unchanged, and 6 were down from July 1, 1959. The number of cattle on feed in this
group of States declined 16 percent from April 1 to July 1, compared with a 13 percent decline in
the same period in 1959.

NORTH CENTRAL STATES UP 1 PERCENT In the 12 North Central States, cattle and calves on
feed totaled 3,719,000 head on July 1-- an increase of 1 percent over July 1, 1959. Iowa, the
leading State was up 6 percent, and Nebraska, the second leading State, was up 1 percent.

SIX WESTERN STATES SHOW 11 PERCENT INCREASE In the 6 Western States for which comparable
data are available (Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and California), cattle on feed
totaled 1,409,000 on July 1, 1960--11 percent more than a year earlier. Nearly two-thirds of the
increase in these States was in California, which on July 1 this year accounted for over half of
the 6-State total. Of this group, only Colorado showed a decline from July 1 last year.

MARKETING UP 4 PERCENT PLACEMENTS DOWN 6 PERCENT Marketings of fed cattle from the 21
States totaled 3,042,000 head in the April-June quarter, 4 percent more than in the same period
of 1959. In the North Central States, marketing were up 1 percent, while in the 6 Western
States marketing were up 10 percent.
Beef steers and heifers (Prime, Choice, and Good grades) sold out of first hands for slaugh-
ter at 12 major markets during April, May and June were 1 percent below the same period in 1959.
These data do not include direct sales to packing plants, mixed lots of steers and heifers, and
some deliveries bought on prior contracts.
Cattle and calves placed on feed in the 21 States during April, May, and June this year
totaled 2,033,000 head, 6 percent less than in the sare period in 1959. Shipments of stocker and
feeder cattle into 8 Corn Belt States (for which data are available) during April and May this
year were 21 percent lower than for the same two months in 1959.

TIME ON FEED In the 26 States, 37 percent of the cattle and calves on feed July 1, 1960
had been on feed less than 3 months; 33 percent had been on feed from 3 to 6 months; and 30 per-
cent had been on feed more than 6 months.
For the 21 States with comparable data, cattle on feed less than 3 months were 5 percent
below July 1, 1959, while the number on feed 3 to 6 months was up 7 percent from a year earlier
and the number on feed more than 6 months was 13 percent higher. In these 21 States, cattle and
calves by length of time on feed as a percent of total this year and last were: under 3 months,
37 and 40 percent; 3 to 6 months, 53 and 32 percent; and over 6 months, 30 and 28 percent.

MARKETING INTENTIONS Reports from cattle feeders in 21 States indicate that they intend
to market 58 percent of their current inventory during July, August and September. This would be
3,118,000 head of fed cattle, 6 percent above the comparable marketing of 2,937,000 head during
the third quarter of 1959. The combined total of expected marketing of fed cattle from the 26
States for July, August, and September is 3,249,000 head. From this total of anticipated
quarterly marketing, cattle feeders in the 26 States reported that they planned to sell 31 per-
cent in July, 35 percent in August, and 34 percent in September.

COLD STORAGE HOLDINGS OF MEATS AND LARD, JUNE 30, 1960

Seasonal reductions in warehouse stocks of red meats were less than usual.
The 44-million-pound net reduction during June compares with declines of 64 million
a year earlier and the 74 million average. Warehouse holdings of 590 million
pounds on July 1 were 1 percent above that date last year and 12 percent above aver-
age. Net losses in beef stocks of 7 million pounds exceeded reductions a year
earlier by 2 million ut were 2 million less than the 1955-59 average. Although the
141 million pounds of beef in storage on July 1 were 16 percent below the same date
last year, stocks were 12 percent above average. Pork stocks during June displayed
a reduced seasonal out-movement. The 32-million pound reduction compares with de-
clines of 52 million during June of a year earlier and the average of 59 million.
On July 1 pork stocks totaled 354 million pounds. These were 13 percent above hold-
ings on July 1, 1959 and average.
