CHICAGO,: 'March. 13. set a new top for the year at $8.50 as values "climbed 10 to 20 cents on light weight hogs. Active' demand from all sources for light hogs brought about a sharply competitive .trade in hogs scaling under 200 Ibs. Heavy hogs were alow and showed only part of the advance. Half of the fresh run of 20,000 hogs,was forwarded straignt to packing plants, and 5,000 hogs were carried over unsold from the previous session. Bulk of the desirable 170-210 Ibs. moved early at 58.25 to 8.45. While bovine trade saw spme activity on the part of buyers on out of town' accounts seeking desirable steers and local operators selecting light weight stock, the general trade was of small proportions. Scarcely 2,000 matured cattle and less than 1,000 calves made up the day's supply. Strictly choice beeves were conspicuous by their absence. Packers received 73 head of cattle on direct billing. Packers reported 4,877 lambs received on thru consignment, leaving approximately 7,000 sheep and lambs on sale. Competition was looked for between eastern shippers and city butchers for the choice medium weight lambs. Packers were indifferent at the outset, tho the tradeihad a generally steady undertone. Hogs dosed active 10-25c higher. Cattle finished unchanged' and sheep generally steady.
