Letter From our Regular Correspond
ent at Kansas City.
Kansas Oily. April 25, 1!H0. -For
tunately for cattle sellers i broad
outlet developed last week, which en
abled salesmen to dean up every
thing without much effort, and tit
highest average prices of the year.
Heavy steers were a drug, When
ever light handy weights could be se
cured, and the close was 15 to 25
lower than the best time of the
week on heavy weights. Light, steers
and she stuff also lost a little of
their edge, but still they finished
better than the close of previous
week. Stockers and feeders were a
disappointment to owners, as buyers
refused to take stock steers except
at a reduction of 15 to 30 cents the
last half of the week, and even feed
er buyers balked when tlie competi
tion on fleshy steers from packers
became too aggressive. The run of
cattle today is 9,000 head, market
steady to weak on heavy steers and
on sin' stuff, but light steers are
strong to 10 higher. Some 1,000 lb
steers sold today at $8.2o, other lots
at 1*8.in, and bulk of stems at $7.00
to *$8.00. Choice heifers bring up to
$8.00, and heavy cows up to $7.50,
bulk of she stuff $5 to $7.
The rebound of the hog market
from the bottom, which was struck
last Tuesday, amounts to 30 to 35
cents, including a gain of in cents
today. Packers had figured that the
slight advance in prices granted by
i them the hist half of the week would
start, a flood of hogs this week to
market, but found themselves mis
taken today, wh< n only « 5,500 head
catne in, and had to pay higher prices
to fill their orders. Retailers are
said to be still charging maximum
prices over the counters and eonsurnp
tion is at a low ebb, otherwise pack
ers would buy more freely, figuring
from which it don’t seem likely that
prices will suffei much for awhile.
Top today is $9 40.
