CATTLE_ FEEDIIG SITUATION _-_OCTOBER l. 1935

Information available at the beginning of October points to a material
increase in the number of cattle to be fed for market during the late fall and
winter feeding period this wxear over the small numbers fed a year earlier. It
appears that thLe increase in feeding will be general both in the Corn Belt
and in other areas where cattle are finished for market in considerable numbers,
With supplies of hay and roughage large and prices low in nearly all States,
and with feed :rain production much larger than last year .nd hog numbers
greatly reduced, there is a wide-spread tendency to turn to cattle feeding to
utilize available feed.

In the -Zrstern Corn Bolt States where cattle fecdin-s in the winter and
spring of 1934-35 was reduced little, i" any, a considerable increase is.indi-
cated for this .war. Shipment of stocker and feeder cattle, inspected at
stockyard markets, into tl-.is area during the three months July to September
this yoar was abo-.-t the largest on record for this period. Tht se largo inship-
ments follow record lp.rge inshipmcnts during the first six months of this year,
making a total for the nine months, January to Septumb-r, the largest in the 17
years for dn/ich records are available. Thu cattle bought in the first half of
the year were largely for msuTrneor grazing to be f, ud ou.t this coming Vi-nter,
rather than cattle for imnnediatc feeding.

In the western Corn Bolt States where cattle feeding in the winter of
1934-35 was greatly reduced as a. result of th. drought, a considerable in-
crease in feeding in the winter of 1935- 3, over a ye:r earlier is indicated.
This increase will be largest in the StPtes west of the MIirsouri River and
in Missouri where the 19S4 drought was most severe. Since corn production this
year in the States west of the .,iissouri River v.ill be much belo- average,
cattle feedin.rj in these Sta.tes this 'ear, w-hile much larger than last, is
expected to be considerably belol: average. Shipments of stocker and feeder
cattle, inspected at public stockyards i"'to the western Corn Belt States dur-
ing the three months, July to September, were the small st on record for these
months. There has been, however, a very heavy movement of stocker and feecder
cattle thro-Jh, large scale auction markets in some of these States as well
as a heavy :!over.nit direct from cattle growing areas to feed lots in these
States which did not co either through stoclvards or auction markets.

Reports from the far western States indicate a considerable increase
in cattle feeding this year over last in nearly all States. Feed supplies
this year are generally abur.da;--t and lox- priced Fnid cattle feeding is being
increased to utilize the feed. A co-.siderable in-crease in cattle feeding
in Texas, at cottonseed oil mills, a.id elsewhere, is reported as probable.
