1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE STEADY PRICES HELD IN SWINE Demand for Good to Choice r Steers Strong but for - Others Poor. CHICAGO, March 25 . CffO--In- creased receipts of cattle consisting largely of wheat packers classify as trashy offerings, canceled the ef- ;fect of the strong closing market of the previous day. Inquiry for good jto choice steers.was broad enough but medium and inferior kinds were 'not wanted. Packers received two cars of cattle direct-from Milwaukee out of the estimated run of 10,000, which was 3,000 larger than the "advance car report had indicated. Hog prices were held steady on a Bupply of 16,000 \fresh and 5,000 stale hogs. Packers received direct consignments of 2,000 and .they were not evenly distributed. Choice lights taken by yards traders and Shippers at $8.10 equaled Tuesday's top. Butchers of substantial weight went at $7.35@7.40, but the major packers did not give the early market good support. None of the 7,000 sheep and lambs yarded here today went direct to packers and with all buyers 3n the market higher prices were in-evitable. Lambs of quality were well above $9. . ·'· Hogs closed very slow, butchers mostly IOC or more lower. Cattle finished stronc to 25c higher ana steep fairly active, strong 'to unevenly higher. 5.50; utocker and feeder steers, good and choice (all weights) $6.75@9; common and medium (all weights) $5.25^0.75.
