In the July-ithrough-Septemr ber quarter, fed-cattle slaughter was off seven percent from a year earlier, but total cattle slaughter was up 16%. FutrelJ said reports from packers fail to confirm a non-fed slaughter increase of such magnitude. As a result, the economist concludes that a fairly large number of cattle are being fed moderate amounts of grain before slaughter, yet are not reported as "fed" animals at slaughter. Whatever the explanation for the disparity in figures, it appears the cattle-on-f eed count is a less reliable indicator of future marketings than i n 'the past due to current abnormal production and marketing decisions. As a result, the economist says it is extremely difficult to forecast the level and composition of U. S. cattle slaughter. Although the supply of fed cattle is likely to continue declining well into 1975, Futrell says relatively large total supplies of beef are likely to prevent any sharp upturn in cattle prices in the next several months. However, limited Auction Sales EVERY Tues. 1:00 p.m. Hogs and sheep will be sold the first part of sale, DeVRIES AUCTION CO. BUFFALO CENTER, IOWA strength seems likely in the final weeks of 1974 with December choice steer prices in Iowa expected to average in the 41 to 43-dollar range. Prices in the first quarter of 1975 should average somewhere between 42 and 45-dollars. Futrell said smaller supplies of pork and chicken will be strengthening influences on the 1975 beef market, while a significant negative factor is ;he current prospect for rela- ;ively slow economic conditions in 1975.
