CATTLE FEDIITG SITUATION 7EC.ii2R 1, 1S34.
Shipments of stocker and feeder cattle into the Corn Belt States dropped
sharply in November. The feeder movement in Hovembtr this year is 45 percent
below the 5 year (1929-33) average and is the s.nallest in 16 years. The total
movement from July to r-oveember is slightly less than that for the same period
last year and is the smallest on record. The snipmruents this year from July to
November are about 1,100,000 head compared with 1,120,000 last -year and 1,306,000
head f or the 5 jear average.
The 5 Corn Belt States east of the Mississippi River received 40 percent
of the total Corn Belt feeder shipments for the period from July to December
while for the 5 yers 1929-2-'.3 an average of 28 percent of the total Corn Belt
shipments went to t'.;c-j S' s. The siincnct. cf f lor cattle into the drought
States have been the smnallest c-n record. Due to short supplies and relatively
high prices of both hay a-d grain it is likely that a la-j r proportion of feeder
cattle in all Corn B-lt States will be w;7iter'.d on r-u.hage +l.n was anticipated
Shipments of stocker and feeder cattle from 4 mn.rkets into the Corn Belt
during July November were 5 percent larger thn last year, but the inb'Leri of
cattle weighing 800 pounds a-id above was 18 percent less than last year. Ship-
ments of cattle weig:hig less tnan 800 pounds were 10 percent above last year rnd
shipments of cows and neifers were 14 percent above l:.st year.
Reports from the western States indicate that the number of cattle fed
this winter will be co.sider-bly; szcll'r th-n last r -:c:-t in Calif --nl,
where the number fed rill to slightly above lest year. The greatest reductions
in feeding will be ii- the &r:fs v'hro the sugar beet crop was small this year.
Finishing cattle at cotton bied Lills in Texas and klaor.a is expected to be
on a small scale this Tinter.
