MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


The week's price trend on slaughter steers
was steady to 750 higher at most midwest markets
with sales at Chicago 7504-$1.50 up. Slaughter
heifers closed steady to 250 higher aside from
the 500-$1.00 upturns at Chicago. The advance
was stimulated by higher prices on steer and
heifer carcasses. However, lower trends on cow
beef influenced 25-500 declines on slaughter
cows at most points. Stocker and feeder cattle
and calves sold mostly steady at midwest points,
instances 500 higher. Barrows and gilts closed
5004-$1.00 higher under the influence of the
third consecutive week of higher prices on
dressed pork. Slaughter lambs sold weak to
$1.00 lower with sharply lower dressed prices a
major factor contributing to the downturns.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Reduced
slaughter steer and heifer supplies coupled with
a moderate advance on carcass beef influenced
upturns in steer and heifer prices. Sharp de-
clines the previous week and non-koshering Jew-
ish holidays the latter part of the week in
review prompted producers to curtail marketing.
Receipts at the 12 terminals were the largest
since October, 1959, but this was attributed to
increased marketing of cows and stockers and
feeders. Slaughter steers were generally steady
to 750 higher with the greatest advance on the
average-Good to Prime grades. At Chicago steers
sold 754-$1.50 higher with supplies there the
smallest since early April. Slaughter heifers
were mostly steady to 250 higher and 500-$41.00
up in Chicago. Increased numbers and lower
wholesale cow beef prices contributed to a 25#-
500 decline in live cow prices. Bulls were 500-
$1.00 lower. Vealers sold steady to $1.00 lower
in St. Paul and steady at St. Louis. Slaughter
steers and heifers continued to make up the bulk
of the receipts at most points with the Good and
Choice grades predominating. The percentage
Prime in the steer supply at Chicago fell from
16 percent to 10 percent and there was a very
limited number grading high-Choice and Prime at
other terminals.
A load of Prime 1178# steers brought $27.25
in Chicago where the bulk of the Choice and
Prime grades sold at $24,00-26.50, several
loads Prime 1150-1400?/ $26.50-26.75. At other
points a few loads of high-Choice and Prime
steers cashed from $24.50-26.00. Bulk Choice
steers $23.50-24.50, Good and low-Choice $21.50-
23.50, Standard and low-Good $18.00-21.50.
High-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime slaughter
heifers sold at 823.75-24.50 with 2 loads mostly
Prime $25.00 in Chicago. Choice heifers bulked
at $22.00-24.00; Good $20.00-22.50. Utility and
Commercial cows realized $12.50-15.00 with a few
from $15.50-16.00 while Canners and Cutters
brought .?10.50-13.50.


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Seasonally large volume marketing of stockers
and feeders continued in full swing. Receipts at
midwest markets were fully as large as in the
previous week and somewhat above the same week a
year ago when adverse weather conditions tended
to curtail numbers. Marketings of stock calves
were somewhat larger than in other recent past
weeks, but this class continued in relatively
moderate supply. The preponderant supply of 550-
950# yearling and two-year-old steers included a
liberal showing of Choice grade. Trading was
fairly active in the midwest with prices gener-
ally maintained on a steady basis, instances as
much as 500 higher. However, at Denver, where
supplies were largest thus far this season, the
trend was 25-500 lower, instances $1.00 lower.
Bulk Good and Choice 525-700# yearling
stock steers brought $22.00-25.50, moderate
numbers in the lower end of the Good grade $21.00-
21.50 and few loads high-Choice $25.75-26.00.
Numerous shipments of Choice yearlings were
included at $24.50-25.50. Medium and low-Good
stock steers sold from $18.00-21.50, few Common
$15.00-37.00. At So. St. Paul Choice 80Q0#
feeders reached $25.50 and at Chicago Choice
partly fattened 975# steers brought $25.75. Mean-
while, majority Good and Choice 800-1050# feeders
cashed from $20.50-23.50 with very few over 900#
exceeding $23.00. Medium to low-Good feeder
steers sold from $18.00-20.50. Several loads
Choice 550-670# heifers brought $23.75-24.00,
other Good and Choice yearling heifers $19.50-
23.50, majority sales $20.00-23.00. Few loads
Choice 300-425# stock steer calves brought 428.50-
29.00, and a part load 290# cashed at $30.00.
Majority Good and Choice steer calves, however,
sold from $25.00-28.00, small lots of Good $22.00.
Good and Choice heifer calves ranged $20.00-26.25,
most sales .?21.00-25.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Hog receipts at
the 12 terminals were only 2 percent less than
the preceding week,but 19 percent short of the
corresponding period a year ago. The run was
predominantly barrows and gilts weighing 190-
260# with an increase in those averaging 230-260#.
Sows comprised between 8-15 percent of the
receipts at most markets. Uniform price advances
of 500-$1.00 were recorded on barrows and gilts
at the majority of midwest markets. Sows were
25-750 higher. However, at St. Paul butchers and
sows sold steady to 250 higher and at St. Joseph
sows closed 7504-$1.00 higher. Influencing the
upturns were $1.00-2.00 higher trends on most
pork cuts.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1-2, and uniform mixed
No. 1-3, 190-25Q0# barrows and gilts brought
$18.00-18.75; mixed No. 1-5, and No. 2-3, 190-270#
brought $17.50-18.25 at most points except same









weights and grades at Indianapolis and St. Louis
$18.25-18.65. U. S. 1-3, 270-550# sows sold at
$13.75-16.25, some U. S. 1-2, 250-350# $16.50
at several markets.
Sales on feeder pigs were generally steady
at Sioux City and St. Paul. Good and Choice
feeder pigs at both terminals ranged from $15.50-
16.25, some Medium and Good $15.00.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area The week's hog receipts were just
slightly larger than the previous week, but fully
25 percent less than corresponding week last
year. A rather slow daily movement in the face
of a generally good demand tended to strengthen
prices gradually. Closing sales compared with
the previous Friday were mainly 60-750 higher on
butchers; sows 600 to largely 750 higher. Mixed
U. S. No. 1-3, 200-240# butchers sold late from
$16.95-17.50 with a moderate volume mostly No. 1
and 2 lots at $17.50-18.00. No. 1-3 270-400#
sows sold at $14.70-16.65, 400-550# $13.20-15.25.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets were 10 percent more
than a week ago and 18 percent over last year.
Marketings showed a seasonal increase in shorn
slaughter lambs and also included an increased
volume of feeder lambs. Rather liberal market-
ings coupled with lowe: dressed lamb prices were
bearish factors influencing price downturns at
many terminals. For the week, slaughter lambs
were weak to $1.00 lower but mainly 504-$1.00
lower at most markets and $1.00-1.50 off at
Chicago. Slaughter ewes were steady. Feeder
lambs sold unevenly steady to 500 lower.
Choice and Prime 82-113# wooled slaughter
lambs sold from $17.00-18.00 late in the week
and to $18.25 at Denver; mostly Prime lambs
reached $19.00 at Chicago and St. Louis. Good
and Choice slaughter lambs brought $15.50-17.75,
mostly $16.00 up. Choice and Prime 90-113# shorn
slaughter lambs with No. 1 and 2 pelts sold at
$17.00-17.75, load $18.75 at Chicago; most Good

ter ewes sold from $2.00-5.25. Good and Choice

feeders $13.00-16.00. Good and Choice solid
mouth breeding ewes brought $10.00-13.00 per head.
Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior Iowa-
Southern Minnesota area were 19 percent less than
a week earlier, and 13 percent under last year.
Slaughter lambs sold 750 to fully $1.00 lower;
slaughter ewes steady. Late in the period, Choice
and Prime 80-1054 wooled and shorn slaughter
lambs with No. 1 and 2 pelts sold from $16.50-
17.00; Good and Choice $14.50-16.50. Cull to

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Pork held the spotlight
and sold in an active trade with clearances
broad. Good demand prevailed for beef rounds,
chucks and forequarters, Choice and Prime veal,
lamb legs and chuck cuts, while other primal cuts
of railstock classes found only moderate outlet.
Sales of beef and lamb carcasses were below
normal and beef hindquarters met poor demand at
some points. Beef supplies were normal at most
eastern seaboard centers. Volume of Choice and
Prime veal was scarce, other grades as well as
calf about normal. Lamb supply was normal at
most points, except receipts at New York swelled
to liberal proportions through increased offer-
ings from local kill sources partially operating
under non-kosher output during holy days.
Steer beef closed steady to 50# higher with
New York showing the advance; cow beef steady
to $1.00 lower. A weak to $3.00 lower trend was
recorded on veal at Philadelphia while veal sold
steady to mostly $1.00 lower at. New York and calf
fully $1.00 lower, otherwise veal prices were
steady to $2.00 higher, the upturn for Choice and
Prime at Washington. Lamb prices were steady to
$2.00 lower. Pork loins sold steady to $3.00
higher and closed at high time of the week, other
pork cuts were steady to $2.00 higher, except
spareribs at New York and Philadelphia $1.00-2.00
lower. Prices were mainly steady for kosher
steer forequarters; lamb mainly $1.00 off; veal
and calf closed steady to mainly $2.00 off.

CHICAGO Supplies in the beef, lamb and
fresh pork divisions were normal, beef for the
most part grading Choice. Moderate veal offer-
ings included only a very limited showing of
Choice and Prime. Steer and heifer beef trade
was only moderately active. Beef chucks and
rounds were in good demand, chucks selling $1.50-
2.00 above the previous week's close. Beef loins
on the other hand were very slow and inventories
in most coolers were burdensome. Loins sold
lower, offsetting the advance on chucks. Moder-
ately broad outlet for ribs narrowed somewhat as
the week progressed. Choice and Prime veal was
readily absorbed, however, other grades which
were more plentiful, proved hard to sell. Car-
case lamb trade opened moderately active but
slowed after Tuesday. Legs cleared at a brisk
pace, all interests active, other primal cuts
slow. Quoted fresh pork cuts found equal dis-
tribution in a fairly active trade. Prices on
steer and heifer beef were steady; Choice and
Prime veal steady, other grades $1.00 lower;
lamb $1.00-2.00 lower; pork loins 8-16# $1.00-
1.50 higher; Boston butts steady to 50# higher;
spareribs 3# down steady.
rather
PACIFIC COAST Trading was/slow on a liberal
supply of steer beef. Cow beef was in moderate


supply but generally adequate. Trading was
moderately active on an ample supply of calf,
however, 150-200# carcasses were limited in
Los Angeles. Lamb was adequate for a fairly
active trade. Fresh pork cuts were liberal
for a slow movement in Los Angeles, but inade-
quate for a good demand at other points along
the Pacific Coast. Smoked pork was slightly
liberal for a rather slow movement. Steer beef
sold weak to mostly $1.00 lower, instances $2.00
off in the Northwest; cow beef mostly steady
with instances $1.00 higher at Los Angeles; calf
steady to $1.00 lower, extremes $2.00 off; lamb
steady in California and weak to $1.00 lower in
the Northwest; fresh pork steady to $1.00 higher
except spareribs $1.00 lower at Los Angeles;
smoked pork steady to $1.00 higher, the advance
generally at Los Angeles, while bacon sold weak
to $1.00 lower in the Pacific Northwest.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Sales of greasy domestic worsted wools were
limited in the Boston market as prices tended
easier. Occasional small lots of woolen wools
sold slightly easier. There was good demand for
clear spot noils at about steady prices. Ac-
tivity in the territory States had subsided and
trading in the fleece wool States was practical-
ly at a standstill. Limited sales of 12 months
and fall wools were made in Texas.
Cabled reports at midweek from Geelong,
Australia showed the Continent, Japan and
England the principal operators with competition
broad and best wools were firm, others unchanged.
At Newcastle, the Continent, eastern Europe ana
Japan were the principal operators with wools
selling lower. In South Africa, France and Italy
dominated with the United States and England buy-
ing sparingly. Long fleece wools were very firm
with other wools easier. Trading at New Zealand
and South American markets was very slow.
Fleece Wools Graded low 1/4 blood 46/48s
staple fleece wool sold at 950 clean basis, while
occasional small lots of graded 50/54s fleeces!
brought from 980-$1.00 clean basis.
Territory Wools Sales of territory wools
were limited.
Texas Wools Original bag average 12 months
good French combing and staple wool sold around
$1.12 while choice delaine type 12 months brought
around $1.18 clean basis delivered Boston. Oc-
casional lots of fall wool sold from 36-40#
grease basis to the warehouse and was estimated
around 90-930 scoured basis, delivered.
Mohair Original bag mohair brought 76
for alTtand $1.11- for kid hair to the ware-
house while straight kid mohair sold near $1.51F
to the warehouse. Turnover in the Boston market
was rather slow but with small sampling orders
of matching from the woolen mills. Mohair top
was moved in small lots as follows: Bulk 26s
around $1.70, 28s around $1.85-1.90, and 32s
around $2.75.
Foreign Wools Trading on foreign wools
was dull. Cabled quotations at week's end
follow, with combing wools converted to clean
U. S. oil-combed yields and short wools to
scouring yields, in bond.
