Kansas City Stock Yards, July
17, 1911. The cattle run here
last week was cut in two, as com-
pared with the previous week,
the big decrease due to more
favorable outlook in the country.
Naturally the market improved
under this treatment, the close
10 to 40 higher on killing kinds,
and 50 to 90 cents on stockers
and feeders. The best grades of
fat cattle advanced the least, the
lower grades getting the biggest
gains, as the latter had to sell at
ruinous rates at the close of prev-
ious week. The market here
advanced all week, while Chicago
prices declined just as steadily,
an anomolous condition, due to
unequal distribution of the sup-
plies at the various markets.
Kansas City territory has receiv-
ed a fair amount of rain during
the past two weeks, and the dry
weather influence on receipts at
this market has practically been
removed. The run here today is
11,000 head, including 1600 head
of quarantine cattle. It is said
that receipts from quarantine
territory will be small tor some
time ahead, as shippers will
either put as much weight on
their cattle as they can, or wait
fur an improvoment in market
prices, while pastures hold out.
Top dry lot steers bring $6.60 to
$6.75, and all corn fed cattle sell
above $6.00. Kansas pasture!
cattle bring $5.50 to $6.15, from
the flint hills, and other native
grass cattle sell at a range of
$4.b0 to $6.00. Quarantine steers
bring $3.90 to $4.75 for most
droves, a few up to $5.00, and
light steers down to $3.25, cows
in quarantine division at $2.50 to
$4.00, native cows $2.25 to $4.75,
bulls $2.75 to $4.50, veal calves
$5.5&to $6.50, stock steers $3.25
to $5.00, feeders $4.00 to $5.50.
Hog prices closed a little lower
last week, the result of a big
fight on the part of packers on
the rising tendency of the mar-
ket, but it looks like this victory
of the buyers would be short
lived. The run today is small,
7000 head, and prices bounded
up 5 to 10 cents this morning,
top $6.60, bulk $6.25 to $6.50.
More light trashy hogs are ap-
pearing than formerly, hence the
wider spread in prices. Light
weights have forfeited their lead
in prices, heavy weights now at
the top, medium weights a little
below the heavies, light weights
today at $6.15 to $6.50, as that
class embraces the big end of the
trash. It looks like higher prices
Sheep and lambs are holding
about even on prices with a week
ago, though the market has been
up and down. Natives make up
the big end of the receipts, and
the quality is extremely uneven.
Packers buy up the best droves
at strong prices, but medium and
low grades have a tendency to
drag. Run is 5500 today, mar-
ket strong, top lambs $7.00,
wethers $4.25, ewes $3.75, stock
and breeding ewes worth $2.50
