MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Slaughter steers recovered some of the
price declines recorded the previous three
weeks, although heifers and cows continued to
work lower. Higher prices for steer beef in
the dressed trade was the major strengthening
factor on slaughter steers while further de-
clines for cow beef had a bearish effect on
cows. Slaughter steers closed generally steady
to 500 higher; heifers unevenly steady to 750
lower; cows 250-$1.00 lower. In the midwest
area stockers and feeders were mainly steady to
500 lower, except at Kansas City where some
sales were 500 higher. General price declines
were made on barrows and gilts for the second
consecutive week. At most midwest terminals
barrows and gilts closed steady to 500 lower;
in the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota area
prices were mostly steady. Sows closed steady
to 500 higher at most points. Spring slaughter
lambs were unevenly steady to 500 higher,except
steady to 500 lower at Kansas City and steady
to 250 lower at Omaha; slaughter ewes mostly
steady.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Improved
movement and a mildly stronger price trend on
steer and heifer beef at major wholesale
dressed meat centers prompted a limited advance
on slaughter steers during the period. This
was the first general advance in four weeks.
Steers were generally steady to 500 higher at
midwestern terminal markets, but the trend was
very uneven. Omaha was steady to 250 lower on
Good steers and St. Joseph was steady to 500
lower on Standard and Good offerings while
Utility and Standard were steady to 500 lower
in St. Paul. Heifers failed to follow the ad-
vance on steers in most cases and sold steady
to 750 lower with major declines on Standard
and Good offerings weighing less than 850#. A
50 750 higher trend prevailed on both steers
and heifers at St. Louis National Stockyards.
Cows were steady to $1.00 lower as cow beef
continued to decline at the wholesale level.
This was the third consecutive week of price
declines on cows and in St. Joseph the Utility
and Commercial grades were at the lowest point
in almost three years. Bulls sold steady to
$1.00 lower, Sioux City showing a $1.00-2.00
lower trend. Vealers were $1.00 higher at both
St. Paul and St. Louis with some high Choice to
$28.00 in St. Paul. Receipts at the major
terminals totaled 214,000 or about like that of
the previous week. Supplies continued to be
largely slaughter steers and heifers at most
points with the Good and Choice predominating.
Only 6 percent of the steers in Chicago were
Prime.
At Chicago high-Choice and Prime and Prime
steers sold from $26.00-27.50, 5 loads of Prime
$28.00-28.50. Good to average-Choice $22.50-


25.75. Elsewhere bulk Choice steers secured
$24.00-25.00, high-Choice and Prime $25.25-
26.00, Good and low-Choice $21.00-24.00, some
to $24.50. Most Standard and low-Good steers
$18.00-22.00. Bulk Choice heifers sold at
$23.25-25.00, a few high-Choice and Prime
$25.00-25.75, most Good and low-Choice $20.25-
25.50, Standard and low-Good $17.00-21.00.
Utility and Commercial cows $15.00-15.50, Can-
ners and Cutters $11.50-13.50, some to $14.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Much of the area west of the Missouri River dur-
ing the past couple of weeks has experienced
hot, relatively dry weather, but stock water
supplies and pasture conditions as a whole are
still good. With country buyers still mindful
of the persistent bearishness which had charac-
terized demand for slaughter cattle during much
of the past couple of months, stockers and
feeders at best found only a moderately active
outlet. Prices at midwestern terminals gener-
ally were little changed. Principal exceptions
in the midwest were at Kansas City where some
sales were 500 higher and at Omaha and Sioux
Falls where prices ruled steady to 50 lower.
At Denver, trading was mostly 500-$1.00 lower
with some lightweight stockers $1.50 off. Good
and Choice calves and Good yearlings at Fort
Worth sold $1.00-2.00 lower, at Oklahoma City
weak to mostly 500 lower with yearling heifers
and heifer calves $1.00-2.00 lower.
A few Choice 800-850# feeder steers brought
$24.00-24.50, part load Choice 745# $25.00.How-
ever, bulk Good and Choice 800-1,050# steers
sold from $20.50-23.50. At Omaha Choice 886#
Colorados turned at $23.75, several loads Good
and Choice 2 and 3 year old 900-1215# feeders
$21.25-22.50. Medium to low-Good feeders ranged
$17.50-21.00. Good and Choice 525-700# stock
steers bulked at $21.50-25.50, including two
loads Good and Choice thin Montana yearlings
$25.50; Medium and low-Good stockers $17.50-
22.00. Choice 560# heifers reached $24.75; ma-
jority Good and Choice $20.00-23.50; Good and
Choice steer calves $22.00-27.50, same grades
heifer calves $20.00-25.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets The salable sup-
ply of hogs at the 12 markets totaled 273,000
head, a decline of 1 percent compared with the
previous week and 13 percent short of a year
earlier. Majority of the barrows and gilts fell
in a weight spread of 190-260# with a very small
showing of offerings over 250#. At most termi-
nals there was a continued expansion of butchers
weighing 190-230#. The average weight of bar-
rows and gilts ranged from 214-236#, which was
2# to 3# lighter than the previous week. Sows
comprised 8 to 27 percent of the runs, an ex-
ception being at Sioux Falls with 55 percent.









Barrows and gilts showed a stronger trend until
midweek when the majority of the sales were
made on a lower basis. Barrows and gilts
closed generally steady to 500 lower except at
St. Paul where prices were mostly steady to 250
higher. As a rule sows found broad outlets
with prices steady to 50 higher, largely 250
up, except 250 lower at Omaha.
At the close, U. S. No. 1 and mixed 1-2
190-240# barrows and gilts brought $18.00-18.75,
largely $18.00-18.50. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and 2-
5, 190-250# cashed at $17.50-18.50, largely
$17.75-18.25 with weights up to 270# falling
within the price range at Chicago. U. S. 1-3
270-600# sows sold largely at $14.00-17.00,some
U. S. 1-2, 270-350# $17.25-17.50.
Feeder pigs were steady at Sioux City and
St. Paul. Medium to mostly Good 130-170#
brought $16.50-17.00, a few mostly Choice
$17.25-17.50.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.
No. 1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows
and gilts was 890 per cwt. based on wholesale
carlot prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago
July 28, to August 5, 1960 inclusive.

HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts totaled 298,000 head or 8 per-
cent more than the previous week, but 13 percent
fewer than a year ago. An increase in the move-
ment of butchers under 220# and a decrease in
the proportion cf butchers over 220# were inter-
esting developments which were reflected in the
trade through nan owing of the overall price
range late in the week. Demand was moderately
good until the close when slow action in the
wholesale dressed pork trade along with a liber-
al Thursday run narrowed the outlets. Prices
were uneven during the week with little change
on butchers. Sows were mostly 25-30# higher.
On Friday, U. S. No. 1-3 190-240# butchers
brought $17.25-18.00, a few No. 1-2 up to $18.25.
No. 1-3 270-400# sows sold from $14.50-16.65;
400-550# $13.00-15.15.

SHEEP AND LAMBS Receipts at the 12 mar-
kets were about 10 percent increased over both
the previous week and a year ago. Spring
slaughter lambs predominated in the receipts
and included limited numbers of shorn lambs.
The expanded marketing and higher wholesale
dressed lamb prices had little effect on the
live trade. Spring lambs at most terminal mar-
kets were steady, however, prices were weak to
500 lower at Kansas City, steady to fully 250
lower at Omaha, but steady to 500 higher at
St. Louis and strong to 250 higher at Denver.
Slaughter ewes were steady, instances 500 lower.
Feeder lambs were uneven, steady at a few termi-
nals, but 25-50# lower at Denver, strong to 50#
higher at St. Paul and 500-$1.25 higher at Fort
Worth.
Choice and Prime 85-113# spring slaughter
lambs closed at $18.00-20.00, Prime lots sold
from $20.50-21.00 at a few markets. Good and
Choice brought $2"7 -1.5 mainly $17.50-


18.50; Utility and Good $14.00-17.50. Good
and Choice 85-115# shorn old crop slaughter
lambs and yearlings with No. 1 and fall shorn
pelts brought $13.00-15.50, few sales $16.00-
17.00; Utility and Good yearlings $10.00-13.00
at Fort Worth. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter
ewes ranged from $2.00-5.50, mostly $2.50-4.50.
Good and Choice 50-97# spring feeder lambs
sold from $15.00-17.50; Choice 60-72# feeders
$17.50-18.50, latter price at Omaha and Chicago;
Medium and Good feeders 412.50-15.50.
In the Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
area, spring slaughter lambs were strong to 50
higher, instances $1.00 up. Slaughter yearlings
and slaughter ewes were steady to weak. Reduced
marketing of spring lambs coupled with strength
for dressed lamb were factors supporting price
advances in the live trade. Receipts of 25,100
head were 4 percent less than a week earlier,
but 9 percent more than a year ago. On Friday,
Choice with a few Prime 80-105# spring slaughter
lambs delivered to packing plants sold from
$18.00-18.50; Prime lots $18.50-19.00, and one
section reached $19.50. Good and low-Choice
spring lambs brought $16.00-18.00 mainly $16.50
-18.00. Good and Choice 100-115# shorn slaugh-
ter yearlings with No. 1 and fall shorn pelts
brought $12.00-14.00, few to 415.00; Utility
and Good $10.00-12.00. Cull to Choice shorn
slaughter ewes brought $2.00-4.00, few 44.50-
5.00.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Practically all whole-
sale units on the Eastern Seaboard worked with
fresh product most of the week as the small
carry-over moved out early. Receipts of all
classes were slightly reduced at New York but
normal elsewhere with beef and spring lamb in-
creased a bit at Philadelphia. Supplies were
generally ample at most markets and movement
of meat rather slow, however, trading was
slow at Baltimore and supplies appeared
plentiful. Outlet at New York was generally
broader than the previous week as retailers,
particularly chain accounts, were more ac-
tive in local markets indicating wide inter-
est for beef rounds and chucks, most veal,
calf and lamb cuts and on late sessions
absorbed the larger portion of available pork
loins. Steer beef closed steady to $1.50
higher but prices at Baltimore were steady
to weak; cow beef 50#-$2.00 lower, veal and
calf weak to $3.00 lower. Spring lamb sold
$1.00-2.00 lower, instances $3.00 off at
Philadelphia, steady to $2.00 lower at Balti-
more; Washington mostly steady, instances
$1.00 higher and New York about steady.
Pork loins steady to mostly $1.00 higher at
New York, other pork cuts fully steady; pork
loins elsewhere steady to $5.00 lower, other
pork cuts steady to $2.00 lower. Kosher
steer forequarters closed strong to 500
higher, Choice and Prime kosher spring lamb
around $2.00 lower.

CHICAGO Beef, spring lamb and fresh
pork offerings were normal, with bulk of the
beef supply Good and Choice; lamb, for the
most part, Choice and weighing under 55#.
Veal receipts were moderate. Wholesale car-
cass beef trade generally was moderately
active and after a slow start most primal
beef cuts met a fairly broad demand. Chucks
moved especially well and showed a gain of
$2.00 with a fair volume sold into the fol-
lowing week. Rounds, ribs and loins were
unchanged. There was a fair outlet for
spring lamb and hindsaddles, while fore-
end cuts and ribs were relatively slow.
Most interests were active in the trade for
Boston butts and spareribs, pork loins were
rather slow- with preference on the smaller
volume 12-16# loins. For the week, steer
and heifer beef steady to 50# higher, veal
steady, spring lamb mostly steady, pork
loins and Boston butts steady to 500 lower,
sparer ib steady

PA"'7ITV COAST Beef continued in
rather liberal supply and was more than
adecua i most instances for the 1i rltU
L,-.:.- demanrd Trading was slow at: 4
.r- ie: m-ra acti acte at othn~


points. Veal and calf was fully adequate for
a fair demand while spring lamb continued liberal
and more than adequate for the slow movement.
There was some -accumulation of fresh and cured
pork cuts at Los Angeles and in the Pacific
Northwest. All beef sold steady to $1.00 lower,
except bull beef steady. Calf was steady at
Los Angeles while veal and calf was weak to
$1.00 lower elsewhere on the West Coast.
Spring lamb sold steady to $1.00 lower; most
fresh and cured pork cuts steady except fresh
pork loins steady to $1.00 lower at Los Angeles
and Portland and $1.00-3.00 higher at San
Francisco; sliced bacon $1.00-4.00 higher;
lard steady to 500 higher, the advance at Los
Angeles.

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading for greasy domestic worsted
wools in the Boston market was slow with
only a few cars sold. The demand was pri-
marily for half-blood wools at about steady
prices. Trading for woolen wools and noils
was slow, with noils prices unchanged, but
woolen wools tending slightly easier. Trading
in the primary markets was slow, but a small
volume of wool sold in Texas at steady prices.
There were only a few sales in the fleece
wool areas as most wool had been previously
sold.
Cabled reports from Australia covering
the sale at Perth on August 2 and 3 showed
the Continent dominating with prices about
steady compared to the last Sydney sale.
There were occasional sales in Montevideo of
super skirted wools while in Buenos Aires
there were occasional sales of carpet wools
to the United States.
Fleece Wools Graded 60/62s good French
combing and staple fleeces sold at $1.05-1.06
clean basis while average to good French comb-
ing 60/62e brought $1.02 clean.
Territory Wools There were no reported
sales of territory wools.
Texas Wools A few clips of good French
combing and staple 12 months wools in original
bags brought around $1.10-1.12 clean delivered
East.
Mohair Occasional lots of early shorn
fall mohair sold at 81l for adult and $l.11i
for kid hair to the warehouse.
Foreign Wools Trading for spot foreign
wools was slow. Quotations at week's close
follow with combing wools converted to clean
U. S. oil-combed yields, in bond.

SHORN WOOL PRODUCTION, 1960
WOOL CLIP UP 3 PERCENT Wool shorn and to be shorn in 1960 is estimated at
265,264,000 pounds (grease basis), according to the Crop Reporting Board. Wool pro-
duction at this level, the largest in 14 years, is 3 percent above the 257,182,000
pounds for 1959 and 15 percent higher than the 1949-58 average. This year's shorn
wool production is equivalent to 119,569,000 pounds clean basis, compared with
115,732,000 pounds clean basis for 1959.
The total number of sheep shorn and expected to be shorn in 1960, estimated at
32,117,000 head, is 4 percent above last year and 16 percent above the 10-year aver-
age. The average weight per fleece at 8.26 pounds compares with 8.51 pounds both for
last year and the 1949-58 average.

WESTERN STATES UP 6 PERCENT In the 13 Western sheep States (11 Western States,
South Dakota and Texas) shorn wool production is estimated at 189,254,000 pounds
(grease basis)--a 6 percent increase over the 1959 clip and 15 percent above the
average. All of these Western sheep States, except Utah, show larger wool pro-
duction this year than in 1959.
Sheep shorn and to be shorn in 1960 at 21,999,000 head are up 6 percent from 1959
and 16 percent higher than the average. The average fleece weight for these States at
8.60 pounds this year is about the same as the 8.65 pounds per fleece last year.
Texas, the leading sheep State, expects a wool crop of 49,969,000 pounds-- up
7 percent from 1959 and 10 percent above average. All of this increase is due to more
sheep shorn, as average weight per fleece is slightly lower. Shorn wool production in
Wyoming, the second leading State, is up 8 percent from 1959.

NATIVE STATES DOWN 5 PERCENT A wool clip of 76,030,000 pounds is expected this
year in the 35 Native or "fleece" wool States (excludes 15 Western States). This is
down 5 percent from last year, but 15 percent above average. The smaller production
for 1960 is the result of both a decline in weight per fleece-7.51 pounds this year
and 7.65 pounds last--and 1 percent fewer sheep shorn.
In this Native sheep area, 24 States show a decline in wool production compared
with 1959, 5 States are unchanged, and 8 States expect a larger wool crop this year.
