CATTLE FEDIIUG SITJATIO :TOVMER 1, 1931.

The demand for stocker and feeder cattle tended to wealken further
during October and as a result the movement of such cattle into the Corn
Belt States during that month was relatively small although prices ,.ere
weak and declining during most of the month. The estimated number of
stockers and feeders inspected through markets shipped into the Corn Belt
States in October this year was 13 per cent smaller than in October last
year and 11 per cent below t -e 5-year October average and was probably the
smallest for the month in 10 years. The srall s'-.ioments in October re-
duced the total shipments into the Corn Belt States for the 4 months,
July to October, this year below the total of last year. T-e nuryber
'Tiis year was 2 per cent smaller thv.n last 'ear and 9 per cent smaller
than the 5-year average for th-is period.

The smaller shipments in October th-is year compared with last were
due to the decreased movement into the states west of thie :isissippi
River. Shipments into nearly all of thescstatcs were below last 'ear
with the largest decreases in the states "est of the :'issouri. The total
shipments into these states for the 4 months July to October -7as the
second smallest for the period in 13 years. Shipments into the states
east of the Mississilppi were larger in October this "car than last and
the largest for the month in six years. The shipments into these states
for the four months July to October iere nearly a third larger than the
small shipments of last yoar and the largest for the period in five years.

Reports from the feeding areas in the 1Western states i'..dicate
that the total number of cattle fed in these states as a vrlole for mar-
ket this coming winter rill be somewhat smaller than last winter. There
will probably be some increase in the Pacific Coast states, a decrease
in the Intermountain states and a decrease in t:-c 2locl0 Mou.itain states
due to the smaller number fed in Colorado. A consieierrble increase is
reported from Texas in the number of cattle to be fed there for market
this -inter. The movement of feeder cattle into the lancaster area
of Pennsylvania and Maryland to the end of October this year was near-
ly 85 per cent larger th'an the small move-ie.-t to th'e ssmc drte last
year.
