Excerpt from Livestock and Meat Situation
The number of cattle on feed in the 23 major States fell to 10 million head on July 1, the fewest since 1968. But the supply of feeder cattle over 500 pounds, not already in feed] ots, grew by 21 percent from last July. The weakening ... demand from feedlots for replacement cattle because of high feed costs and lack of funds, plus the forced movement of the large feeder cattle supply, will keep feeder cattle prices low. A range of $25 for the remainder of 1974 seems likely.
Hog slaughter this summer is expected to exceed last summer's unusually low level by 10-15 percent. But summer slaughter is seasonally lower than the spring, and barrow and gilt prices are expected to average in the mid-30's. Seasonally increasing hog slaughter this fall and increased supplies of lower grade beef are expected to keep hog prices in the low $30's this fall.
