MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Price advances were general at midwest
livestock terminals under the influence of moder-
ate marketing and higher prices in the dressed
trade. Slaughter steers and heifers closed 500-
$1.00 higher at most points to mark the fifth
consecutive week of higher prices. Cows were
steady to 50# higher with stockers and feeders
strong to mostly 500 higher, instances $1.00 up
in an active trade. Barrows and gilts closed
mostly 50#-$1.00 higher; sows largely 25-50#
up. Slaughter lambs were steady to 500 higher.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers and heifers showed an unusually sharp
Thanksgiving week price upturn. Higher prices
were recorded at all midwest terminals with most
points showing a 50#-$1.00 advance and sales at
Chicago were $1.25-1.75 higher. This was the
fifth consecutive week of higher prices and
brought prices on steers back to the levels of
early last summer. Continued moderate receipts
along with higher prices in the dressed trade
influenced the upturn at the live level. Cows
and bulls sold steady to 500 higher. Vealers
were steady at St. Paul and steady to $1.00
higher at St. Louis. The four-day receipts were
14 percent below the previous week, and 7 per-
cent less than a year earlier. Slaughter steers
and heifers made up the bulk of the supply at
most terminals although Sioux City and Kansas
City received 40 and 50 percent stockers and
feeders respectively. Good and Choice grades
predominated in the steer and heifer supply with
only a limited number of Prime offered except at
Chicago where Choice and Prime comprised the
bulk of the steer supply with Prime making up
fully 22 percent.
Scattered loads and lots of mixed Choice and
Prime slaughter steers brought $26.50-27.75 at
midwest terminals with bulk high-Good and Choice
selling from $24.50-26.50. In Chicago bulk
Choice and Prime steers brought $26.50-29.00 with
12 loads Prime at $29.00 late in the week. Over
the area Good steers bulked at $22.50-25.50 with
a few high-Good to $26.50 in Chicago. Loadlots
of mixed Choice and Prime slaughter heifers
brought $25.50-27.00 while Choice bulked at
$24.00-25.25 with most Choice from $25.00-26.50
in Chicago. Good heifers brought $21.50-24.50.
Utility and Commercial cows sold from $13.50-
16.25; Canner and Cutter $11.50-14.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Trading was active on stocker and feeder cattle
and calves at midwest terminals with prices
strong to mostly 50# higher, instances $1.00 up.
A consistent and progressively stronger price
trend has featured trading beginning with the
first week of October and prices were at the
highest levels since July. This marked the first
week thus far this year that stocker and feeder


prices were as high or higher than during the
corresponding week a year ago. The average
price of steers shipped from the 10 markets at
$25.50 compared to $22.79 the previous week and
$22.56 a year earlier. Upturns in slaughter
cattle prices in recent weeks have encouraged
widespread demand for stocker and feeder cattle,
Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder steers
brought $22.00-25.25, occasional shipments
around 800# $25.50-26.50 and 4 loads Choice,
partly fattened 1055# $25.75. Medium and low-
Good feeders bulked at $20.00-22.50. Good and
Choice yearling stock steers sold from $25.00-
27.00, Choice 695# included at $26.75. Few
loads Choice 500-550# short yearlings cashed at
$27.50-31.25. Medium and low-Good stockers
brought $20.00-235.50. Good and Choice yearling
heifers sold chiefly from $21.50-24.50. Good and
Choice stock steer calves ranged $24.00-32.00
with many loads of Choice at $50.00-52.00;
several shipments Choice and Fancy $52.50-55.50.
Good and Choice heifer calves brought $21.00-
28.00, 2 loads Choice and Fancy 402-466# $28.75-
29.50. An increased number of cows sold to
stocker and feeder buyers with majority Medium
and Good grades from $15.50-16.50. At Denver 4
loads 750-850# 2-4-year-old cows $18.00-20,00.

HOGS Terminal Markets The Thanksgiving
holiday interrupted normal marketing of hogs and
receipts at the 12 markets were reduced 22 per-
cent from both a week ago and the corresponding
week last year. Bulk of the offerings consisted
of mixed U. S. No. 1-3 and No. 2-3 190-260#
barrows and gilts with a normal seasonal increase
in weights over 250# and the average weight over
the area was the heaviest of the season todate,
Despite the traditional Thanksgiving competition
of poultry substantial price advances were re-
corded on pork loins. This fact combined with
reduced supplies influenced sharp upturns in
live hog prices. Even at the advance, outlet
was good to all interests with one-third of the
run at St. Joseph going on order buyer accounts.
Barrows and gilts closed mostly 50#-$1.00 higher.
Sows finished steady to 75# higher, largely 25-
500 up.
U. S. No. 1 and 1-2, and at some markets
uniform in weight U. S. 1-35, 190-240# barrows
and gilts bulked late at $17.85-18.85. At Indian-
apolis 125-head of U. S. 1, 200-220# offerings
sold at $19.25 while a shipment U. S. 1, 210# at
Chicago brought $19.00 establishing a new high
there since August as well as equalling the high-
est at that market since December, 1958. Mixed
U. S. 1-5, and 2-3, 180-260# sold at $17.50-18.75,
largely $17.75-18.50. U. S. 1-5, 270-600# sows
brought $15.25-16.50, mainly $13.75-16.00.
Prices on feeder pigs advanced 504-$1.00 at
St. Paul and were 50# higher at Sioux City. Late
sales Good and Choice 150-16Q0# at St. Paul

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets were 29 percent less
than a week earlier and slightly under a year

prices were factors promoting upturns on slaugh-
ter lambs. Wooled slaughter lambs predominated
in the supply. Slaughter lambs and slaughter
ewes along with feeder lambs were steady to 500

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Consumer attention was
generally focused on traditional Thanksgiving
turkeys which were offered abundantly and priced
contrastingly below current levels for red meats
and pork. Nevertheless, there was a moderately
broad demand at retail for non-traditional meats
which was reflected in moderately active trading
for bulk fresh meats. Demand was broad for steer
hinds, rounds and ribs along with pork loins and
Boston butts. Choice and Prime veal was scarce
and short of trade requirements, otherwise de-
mand in that division was rather poor. Outlet
for lamb was moderate. Supplies of beef, veal,
calf, and lamb were near normal for a Holiday
week with pork moderate. Clearance was generally
good for all classes.
Steer beef sold steady to $1.00 higher, bulk
strong to 50 higher; cow beef steady to 50
higher; veal and calf mostly steady; lamb steady
to $1.00 higher; pork loins were mainly $1.00-
3.00 higher; other pork cuts mostly steady ex-
cept fresh skinned hams at Philadelphia $2.00-
3.00 higher.
Kosher steer beef sold 504-$2.00 higher
while lamb closed weak to $1.00 lower. Kosher
veal and calf sold steady for the week.

CHICAGO Supplies of fresh meats were
about normal for the holiday week. High-Good
and Choice comprised the bulk of the beef supply
with lamb carcasses largely 50-65#. Most fresh
meat items followed a higher trend during the
Thanksgiving week. Demand in the beef division
was centered mostly on ribs and rounds, however,
loins and chucks cleared satisfactorily in most
instances with bulk of the beef supply moving as
primal cuts. Veal was moderately active. Out-
lets were fairly broad for lamb and hindeaddles,
however, fore end cuts were slow. The fresh
pork trade was moderately active. Steer and
heifer beef closed mostly $1.00-2.00 higher;
veal unchanged; lamb $1.00 higher; pork loins
$4.00-4.50 higher; Boston butts 4-8# and spare-
ribs 3# down fully steady.

PACIFIC COAST Limited preholiday demand
prevailed on a moderate supply of most weights
and grades of beef, except Choice 500-600# steer
carcasses scarce. Veal and calf supply was gen-
erally ample, except veal limited in Los Angeles.
Lamb was in liberal supply with trading slow.


Fresh and cured pork movement was slow with small
volume unsold. Steer and cow beef along with
calf and veal sold strong to $1.00 higher. Lamb
was steady; fresh pork mostly steady to $1.00
lower with loins $1.00-2.00 off in the North-
west. Cured pork closed steady to strong with
smoked hams in San Francisco strong to $1.00
higher, instances $3.00 up.
