MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

andLOT SALS

RANGE AND' FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers and heifers
declined at midwest markets under the influence
of price downturns on steer and heifer carcasses.
Slaughter steers were generally 25-500 lower,
heifers sold steady to 250 lower, instances 500
off. Cows were strong to 500 higher, the upturn.
prompted by higher prices for cow beef. Stockers
and feeders were fairly active and steady to 500
higher. Barrows and gilts closed generally 50-
$1.00 lower as prices for pork cuts declined for
the second consecutive week. Slaughter lambs
were firm, instances 250 higher.

SLA JGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steer and heifer prices turned lower under the
bearish influence of a decidedly lower carcass
trade at major wholesale centers. These declines
offset any bullish influence the small reduction
in supplies may have had and slaughter steers
were steady to 75 lower, mostly 25-500 off. In
Chicago some Prime 1300-1500# steers were $1.00
lower and at most midwest points weights over
1250# underwent the sharpest decline. Slaughter
heifers were steady to 258 lower, instances 50
off, while cows sold on a strong to 500 higher
basis. Bulls were steady to 50 higher and
vealers sold steady in St. Paul and $1.00-2.00
higher at St. Louis National Stockyards. Re-
ceipts at the 12 markets were about 6 percent
below the previous week and the number of steers
sold out of first hands at the 7 markets were
smallest in 4 weeks. The Good and Choice grades
predominated in the steer and heifer supply.
High-Choice and Prime loads were rather limited
at most points but in Chicago the 15 percent
Prime in the steer supply was equal to the high
for the year to date.
Loadlots of Choice and Prime steers sold at
$23.00-26.50 in Chicago with nothing over $26.25
at midweek when several loads of Prime 1350-1500#
weights sold from $24.50-25.25 and Choice steers
these weights brought $23.00-23.75. At other
points loadlots of high-Choice and mixed Choice
and Prime steers l050-1. it sold at $24.00-26.00.
Bulk high-Good and Choice steers $23.00-24.75
with Choice 1300-1425# weights at $23.00-23.75
in Sioux City. Most Good steers went at $21.00-
22.75. High-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime
slaughter heifers moved from $23.50-24.75 and
most Choice brought $21.75-23.75; Good $20.00-
22.00. Utility and Commercial cows bulked at
$13.00-15.50, Canners and Cutters at $10.50-
13.50.

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. However, even
though marketing were seasonally large, numbers
fell below those of the same week a year ago
when the peak of the 1959 movement was recorded.
Marketings this fall have been somewhat later


than in many.past seasons, reflecting the rela-
tively good lpte season pasture conditions as
well as the tendency some growers had shown the
past month an~ a half to defer marketing in
hopes that 'prices would strengthen. Good to
high-Choice offerings made up a large percentage
.pf "current supplies. Calf receipts were the
largest thus far this season, and included many
shipments grading Choice. Although many 2-year-
old steers were marketed, relatively few steers
over 1000# sold to feeder buyers. Trading at
midwestern markets was fairly active at prices
unevenly steady to 50 higher. Most strength
was shown on calves and yearlings under 650#.
Choice 586# stock steers brought $26.50 and
a moderate number of yearlings sold at $26.00,
including a sizeable string weighing 720#. Other
Good and Choice 525-750# steers bulked at $22.00-
25.50, Medium and low-Good $18.50-22.00. Several
loads Choice, fleshy, 800-850# feeder steers
brought $24.00-24.50 but majority Good and Choice
800-1000# sold from $21.00-25.50, few Good 1050#
$20.25. Medium and low-Good feeders realized
$18.00-21.00. Majority Good and Choice yearling
heifers cashed from $21.00-23.00, including 5
loads Choice 771# Colorado heifers at $22.25.
Choice and Fancy 415# stock steer calves brought
$31.00, many loads Choice $30.00; other Good
and Choice steer calves $23.00-29.00. Good and
Choice heifer calves bulked at $20.50-27.50,load
Choice and Fancy 326# $29.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets The marketward
movement of hogs to the 12 markets decreased 4
percent from the previous week and were nearly
24 percent below the corresponding period of a
year ago. Mixed No. 1-3 190-250# butchers com-
prised the bulk of the supply. The percentage
of sows at the various markets ranged from 8 to
13. Price declines on dressed pork influenced a
rather sharp downturn in live prices for the
second consecutive week despite moderate market-
ings. Barrows and gilts closed generally 50#-
$1.00 lower with extremes ranging from 25#-$1.25
off. Sows closed the period steady to 75# lower,
largely 25-500 off.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1, and 1-2, and at some
points uniform in weight U. S. 1-3, 190-250#

sales $16.75-17.25. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and 2-35,
180-260# bulked at $16.50-17.00 with an extreme
range of $16.25-17.25. During the week a moder-
ate number of U. S. 2-3, and 5, 260-520# butchers
at some western Cornbelt points brought $15.50-
16.75. U. S. 1-3, 270-600# sows sold late in
the week at $153.00-16.00.
Feeder pig prices declined 500 at Sioux
City and St. Paul. At the close Good and Choice
130-160# feeder pigs brought $15.50-16.00, some
Choice at Sioux City $16.25.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading for greasy domestic worsted
wools was slow, however,active for 1/4
blood fleece wools. Prices were unchanged.
Demand was poor for fine and 1/2 blood
wools. Movement of woolen wools also slow
with some activity for noils. Pulled wools
were slow and prices were steady to weak.
Major turnover was in 1/4 blood wools in
the fleece wool States and fall wools in
Texas. Activity in the territory States
continued very slow.
Cabled reports from Australia showed
prices steady for the week, although there
was considerable unevenness. Buyers from
Japan and the Continent were the most ag-
gressive. Prices at New Zealand auctions
opened well below the August close. Compe-
tition was general with Eastern Europe and
China dominating. South American markets
were very slow with a slight weakening
tendency.
Fleece Wools A fairly substantial
quantity of fleece 1/4 blood wools sold
around $1.04 clean, with small volume 3/8p
blood around $1.06. Sales are scheduled
in Des Moines and Minneapolis in mid-
November.
Territory Wools Sales of territory
wools were limited. Sales are to be held
in Stockton, California and Salt Lake City
in late October and early November.
Texas Wools At the sealed bid sale
in Del Rio on the 18th approximately
116,000 pounds sold of the 400,000 pounds
offered. Lambs wool brought 90-95# while
fall ewe wool sold for 85-85# clean,
landed Boston.
Mohair Sales of mohair were about
steady at 762L for adult and $1.11- for
kid hair to the warehouse.
Foreign Wools Australian auctions
closed firm at the end of the week while
the Cape closed slightly higher. Activity
in spot foreign wool very slow. Cabled
quotations on various foreign type follow
with combing wools converted to clean U. S.
oil-combed yields and short wools to scour-
ing yields, in bond.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Practically all meats
shared in the general price declines with trad-
ing dull at all Eastern Seaboard markets. Beef
rounds and hindquarters met good outlets with
demand on loin cuts fair, while forequarters and
equivalents were hard to move. Steer ribs and
chucks met severe set-backs at New York, as de-
mand was poor and prices dropped as much as $6.00
on these cuts. Lamb movement was moderately
active early in the week, but extremely uneven
on the close. Veal and calf was moderately
active at most markets, with best demand for
hindsaddles and cutting operations were mini-
mized. Moderately broad demand for pork cuts
dwindled sharply at midweek, with late demand
extremely poor. Supplies of all classes were
mostly normal. Clearance was good, except small
tonnage of all classes unsold at New York.
Steer beef sold steady to mostly 50# lower,
except at New York, where progressive declines
reflected $1.00-3.00 lower carcass prices. Cow
beef mostly steady, except 50# up at Philadelphia;
veal and calf steady to $2.00 lower. Lamb prices
were largely steady except weak to mostly $1.00
lower at Philadelphia and late bulk 500 off at
New York. Pork loins declined $2.00-6.00, other
pork cuts steady to $5.00 lower, with butts show-
ing the larger downturn. Kosher lamb sold fully
steady, with veal generally weak and kosher steer
beef 500-$1.00 lower.

CHICAGO Supplies of all fresh meats were
normal and fully adequate for the existing demand.
The supply of steer and heifer beef was largely
high-Good and Choice. With the exception of lamb
which followed a higher trend, prices worked
lower in all divisions. Carcass beef sales were
rather limited as most beef sold as primal cuts.
Trading was moderately active for beef rounds,
ribs and loins but slow on chucks. Fair demand
for fabricated cuts aided in the clearance of
loins. Trading for veal was slow throughout.
Outlet was fairly broad for carcass lamb, hind-
saddles and equivalents, particularly legs. De-
mand was moderate for Boston butts, otherwise
trading on fresh pork was slow.
Steer and heifer beef closed 500-$1.00
lower; veal $1.00-2.00 lower; lamb 500-$1.00
higher; pork loins 8-16f $2.50-3.50 lower; Boston
butts 4-8# $1.50-2.00 lower; spareribs 3# down
$1.00 lower.

PACIFIC COAST Large supplies of fresh pork
and continued liberal receipts of Good and Choice
beef and Choice lamb met a selective demand. The
supply of cow beef was below normal. Smoked pork


was in liberal supply for the moderate demand.
Steer and heifer beef sold steady to $1.00 lower
with primal cuts sharing the decline, loins
occasionally $2.00-3.00 lower in the northwest;
