MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Lower wholesale dressed beef prices along
with continued liberal marketing of all slaugh-
ter classes of cattle were the main contributing
factors in lower live prices over the midwest
area. Slaughter steers and heifers were general-
ly 254-$1.00 lower with prices at several termi-
nals 50#-$1.00 off. Cow prices were 500-$1.00
lower. Stockers and feeders sold on an uneven
basis, mostly steady after losing some early
advance; however, stock cattle prices at Omaha
were steady to 500 higher, and 25-500 lower at
Kansas City. Slaughter hogs were also lower
with declines mostly 750-$1.25. Slightly in-
creased numbers and lower wholesale prices influ-
enced the trade. For the most part slaughter
spring lambs were steady to 500 higher; however,
declines of 500 occurred at St. Louis and
Chicago. Spring lambs at Indianapolis were
$1.00-1.50 lower.

SLAUGHTER CATTLE AND CALVES Slaughter
steers, heifers, and cows sold on a sharply lower
basis with further declines on carcass beef at
major wholesale dressed meat centers the major
factor. The average price of slaughter steers
fell to the lowest point in almost three years
at several major midwestern centers. Steer beef
prices were also the lowest since 1957 at some
points. Slaughter steers and heifers were 25
-41.00 lower while cows for the most part sold
504-$1.00 lower. Most terminals showed declines
up to 750 or $1.00 making this the sharpest one
week price break on both steers and heifers
since late June. Choice and Prime steers and
heifers suffered the greatest decline at most
markets. Narrow price spreads between various
grades of carcass beef contributed toward corre-
spondingly narrow price ranges on slaughter
steers and heifers. Increased cow supplies also
contributed toward the decline in cow prices but
total salable receipts at the twelve major termi-
nals were only slightly curtailed. Bulls sold
steady to 500 higher, but prices at Chicago were
500 to $1.00 lower. Vealers were steady to $1.00
lower in St. Paul, but mostly steady at St.
Louis. Good and Choice steers continued to pre-
dominate, but few loads better than average-
Choice were available at most points. The per-
centage Prime in the steer supply at Chicago in-
creased from 7 to 11 percent.
Three loads of Prime 1250-1350# steers sold
at $27.00 in Chicago on Monday, but only two
loads brought $26.75 at midweek. High-Choice and
mixed Choice and Prime steers sold at $25.25-
26.50 in Chicago with a few 1300-1450# weights
from $24.50-25.25. :,obd to average-Choice
brought $21.5Q-25.25 with average-Choice late at
$24.00-24.75. At the other points high-Choice
and Prime secured $25.00-25.50, bulk Choice
$23.50-25.00, High-Good and low-Choice $22.50-
23.50, bulk Good $21.00-23.00. Standard to low-
Good steers brought $17.00-21.00. A few loads of


high-Choice and mixed Choice and Prime heifers
sold from $24.00-25.00 with mixed high-Choice
and Prime to $25.50 in Chicago. Good and Choice
heifers brought $20.00-24.25. Utility and Com-
mercial cows brought $15.00-15.50, mostly $14.00-
15.50, Canners and Cutters $11.50-14.50.

STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
There was only a slight acceleration in the
marketward movement of stocker and feeder cattle
and calves at mid-western terminal markets.* Over-
all quality at terminal markets was at a slight-
ly higher level than earlier in the month, but
offerings better than low-Choice continued in a
decided minority. Early in the week trading
generally was fairly active, however, sharp
downturns in slaughter cattle prices during the
week tended to damper demand. At Omaha, prices
were steady to 50f higher but elsewhere early
strength generally was erased and by the end of
the week prices ranged from mostly steady to SO#
lower.
Choice, fleshy 800-900# feeder steers
brought $24.00-24.50, but the great majority of
Good and Choice 800-1050# steers sold from
$21.00-23.75, Medium and low-Good $18.00-21.00.
Two loads high-Choice 555# stock steers reached
$28.25. Good and Choice 525-700# yearling
steers sold from $22.00-26.25, relatively few
sales above $25.00. Medium and low-Good stockers
ranged $18.00-22.50. One load of Choice yearling
stock heifers reached $25.00, but most Good and
Choice yearling heifers sold from $20.00-23.50.
At the various mid-west terminal markets stock
calf supplies included relatively few load-lots
of Choice grade, but most Good and Choice steer
calves sold from $22.00-26.25; same grades
heifer calves $20.00-25.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Marketings of
hogs followed the pattern of recent weeks in
that receipts were larger than the previous peri-
od, but continued substantially under a year ago.
The barrow and gilt supply was comprised mainly
of mixed grade 190-25Q0 offerings with a moderate
showing of weights over 250#. Sharp price de-
clines featured the trade. Slightly increased
receipts and lower prices in the wholesale trade
combined as price depressing factors and slaugh-
ter hogs came under continuous price pressure
each session of the week. Demand in general was
best for barrows and gilts scaling 210-240# with
weights under 200# relatively hard to move. At
some of the points outlet to order buyers was
the poorest in several months. Compared with
the previous week's close, barrows and gilts
were 75f-$1.50 lower with most markets $1.00-
1.25 off. Sows were 500-$1.50 lower, mainly 75#-
$1.25 off.
At the close of the week U. S. 1-2, and
mixed 1-3, 190-250# barrows and gilts sold at
mainly $15.85-16.25. Mixed U. S. 1-3, and 2-3,


646










190-280# barrows and gilts brought $15.50-16.00.
Earlier in the week, a few loads of U. S. 2-35,
and 5 300-350# butchers sold at $15.00-15.75. U.
S.1-3, 270-600# sows brought $12.25-15.50,
largely $12.50-15.00.
Prices on feeder pigs declined 50* at both
South St. Paul and Sioux City. Medium to mostly
Good 140-180C feeder pigs brought $15.00-15.25
at Sioux City, mostly Good 130-160# feeders at
South St. Paul sold at $14.50-15.00.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Iinnesota
Area Receipts of hogs were slightly larger
than in the preceding week, but some smaller
than a year ago. Mixed U. S. No. 1-3 200 to
240# butchers predominated in the supply with a
slight seasonal increase in marketing of weights
under 200#. Sows made up about 15 percent of
receipts. Butchers closed 854-$1.00 lower than
a week earlier, instances $1.25 off on weights
under 200#. Sows were 85f-$1.10 lower. Closing
prices were at lowest ooint since early March
with No. 1-3 200 to 240# butchers at $14.75-
15.50, a few lots No. 1-2 $15.50-15.85. No. 1-3
270 to 400# sows brought $13.00-15.00; 400 to
550# $11.00-15.40.

SHEEP AND LAMBS The 12 market receipts
of sheep and lambs were around 13 percent more
than the previous week and also 8 percent more
than last year. A fairly even distribution of
daily supplies and moderate activity in the
dressed lamb trade were supporting factors to a
reliable outlet in live trade. Prices on
slaughter spring lambs were mainly steady to 500
higher, but were steady to 500 lower at Chicago
and St. Louis, and $1.00-2.00 lower at Indian-
apolis. Slaughter ewes were mostly steady to 500
higher. Feeder lamb prices held steady.
Choice and Prime 85-1103 spring slaughter
lambs brought 318.50-20.00 with limited volume
Choice to mostly Prime lots 520.00-21.50, a few
$21.75-22.00 in Chicago early. Good and Choice
bulked at $16.50-18.50. Choice and Prime 85-112#
shorn spring lambs with No. 2 to fall shorn
pelts brought $18.50-20.00; Good and Choice
$17.00-18.50. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter
ewes bulked $2.00-4.00, a few $5.00.
Good and Choice 50-85# spring feeder lambs
moved at $15.00-18.00. Several lots Medium to
Good solid mouth breeding ewes sold at $10.00-
11.50 each, and some Good and Choice yearling
and two-year-old ewes brought $15.00 per head.
In the Interior Iowa Southern Minnesota
area, receipts were around 8 percent less than
both the previous week and a year ago. Spring
slaughter lambs made up the bulk of supply with
shorn slaughter yearlings and ewes accounting
for about 10 percent. Demand for spring slaugh-
ter lambs was good on most sessions, but closing
prices were steady to as much as 50 lower.
Other slaughter classes were steady to weak.
Choice and Prime 80-105, spring slaughter lambs
delivered to packing plants troucht $17.50-18.00
on late rounds with a few mostly Prime lots to
$18.50; Good to average-Choice mainly $16.00-


17.50. Cull to Choice shorn slaughter ewes
bulked $2.00-4.00.

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Supplies of fresh meats
were ample in all instances. Unloads at New
York and Philadelphia were around 80% normal in
all divisions, with cut-back by larger whole-
salers equivalent to a car or two, and beef
receipts at Washington were reduced slightly.
Movement of rail stocks and pork was slow with
clearance fairly complete for bulk of fresh
meats. Beef ribs and loin cuts had broad out-
let, while demand was generally poor for steer
chucks and hinds, which sold on a lower basis.
Chain buyers absorbed above normal share of the
latter cuts at New York, being particularly
active for locally dressed product and assigned
some to future delivery. Turnover of cow beef
was slow but dependable. Demand for veal and
calf was good, and slightly favored foresaddles
which sold fully $2.00 higher at New York, but
carcass prices continued unchanged. Broad de-
mand prevailed for spring lamb, pork loins sold
quite prompt at all points except New York where
demand narrowed after the opening session.
Compared with the previous week: Steer
beef fully 50-$1.00 lower at New York and
Washington, otherwise steady to 50 lower. Cow
beef sold steady to 50 higher; veal and calf
mostly steady, with veal $1.00-2.00 higher at
Washington; spring lamb steady to $1.00 higher
at Baltimore and Washington, elsewhere steady to
$1.00 lower. Pork loins $1.00-4.00 higher, ex-
cept at New York $1.00-3.00 lower; other pork
cuts steady to $2.00 lower. Kosher steer fore-
quarters were weak to $1.50 lower; kosher spring
lamb generally weak; veal and calf kosher fore-
saddles fully steady to strong.

CHICAGO Steer and heifer beef supplies
were normal, veal and fresh pork moderate. While
there were a few more lambs available, supplies
were still relatively small. Pork loins were
largely 8-12# averages. The carcass beef trade
was slow with prices declining for the second
consecutive week. Arm and squarecut chucks and
loins were very slow and sold lower, more than
offsetting minor advances on ribs. Ribs were
readily absorbed, mainly because fewer fore-
quarters were cut. Outlets were adequate for
rounds but prices were only steady. Veal moder-
ately active at upturns of late last week, best
action on Good to Prime. All spring lamb cuts
moved well through midweek but ribs and loins
were slow at the close. Fresh pork trade was
slow on each session. Steer and heifer beef
closed 50#-$1.00 lower, veal steady, spring lamb
about steady, pork loins $1.00-2.00 lower, Boston
butts 4-8# and spareribs $1.50-2.00 lower.

PACIFIC COAST Trading on steer beef was
generally slow with supplies moderate. The cow
beef trade was fairly active with supplies liberal


Veal and calf were plentiful with a surplus in
the San Francisco area. Spring lamb was in
moderate to liberal supply and trading generally
slow but active in southern California. Slow
trade prevailed on fresh pork. Steer and heifer
beef prices were steady to 50 lower, sales in
the San Francisco area as much as $1.00 lower
and bookings for next week generally $1.00 lower
in Seattle. Cow beef was firm in the Northwest
but weak to $1.00 lower in California, most loss
at Los Angeles. Veal and calf sold steady ex-
cept $1.00-2.00 lower in San Francisco, some
Standard and Utility $2.00-4.00 off. Spring
lamb sold on a strong basis, instances $1.00
higher in Los Angeles. Fresh pork was weak to
$1.00 lower, spots $2.00-3.00 lower on loins
and spareribs in Seattle and San Francisco.
Smoked hams and bacon sold steady to $2.00
lower, mostly $1.00-2.00 off with other smoked
items and refined lard mostly steady.

-BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW--------------------------------------------------
BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIM


Sales of greasy domestic worsted wools in the
Boston market were limited with approximately three
cars moved. Prices were unchanged. There were oc-
casional sales of mostly scoured pulled woolen wools
at about steady prices with a slightly easier
tendency in some instances. Trade in noils was
very slow at nominal rates. Activity in all the
domestic primary areas was extremely quiet with very
few sales noted.
As auctions resumed in Australia a varied se-
lection of wools were offered in Sydney with prices
about 5 percent lower than the July close while at
Melbourne there was a good selection of topmaking
Merino fleeces offered. Quotations from Perth showed
prices 5-7 percent below the August 1 sale. On the
second day of sales there was a reluctance on the
part of the growers to sell and some wools were with-
drawn. There was a better tone at midweek with
prices unchanged but firm. Continental interests,
Japan and England, were competing throughout. Offer-
ings from New Zealand were mainly of carpet types
while South Africa quoted mostly scoured wools
steady. Quotations from Montevideo were lower in
sympathy with the Australian auctions while Buenos
Aires carpet wool prices were about unchanged.
Fleece Wools Graded 64s average French comb-
ing fleece wools sold at $1.05 clean basis, while
graded 56/58s staple and good French combing brought
$1.08 on a core and 50/56s staple fleeces moved at
$1.06 on a core test.
Territory Wools Sales of territory wools were
very slow.
Texas Wools Turnover in Texas was extremely
slow as prices were unchanged.
Mohair A small weight of mostly adult mohair
sold in Texas at 73 to the warehouse. Buyers were
offering 71 # for adult hair to the warehouse.


Foreign Wools Some shippers in South
Africa were offering wools firm for shipment
prior to the re-opening of auctions at Capetown,
Durban and Port Elizabeth on September 1. Aua-
tralian quotations below are ex-Sydney. All
quotes converted to clean U. S. oil-combed yields
in bond.
