South Omaha , Feb. 1. Receipts of
cattle have been liberal , but the de
mand has been good and prices have
ruled steady to strong for the week.
The demand lias been good for all
kinds of stockers and feeders , especial
ly those of good quality. Good to
choice feeders are selling from $1.00
to $4.35 , while fair to good feeders are
bringing from $3.50 to $ 1.00. The mosl
of the fat cattle offered this week were
short fed steers and are selling from
$4.50 to $5.00. Choice matured cattle
would sell from $1.85 to $5.30. Butch
er stuff Is also in good demand at
strong prices , and we see no reason
why the market should not be stronger
each week from now on.
The hog market has ruled active the

With eastern mutton markets bver-
stocked with dressed meats am } re
ceipts of inferior sheep and lambs so
heavy at Dnffalo and Chicago , buyers
have forced sellers to make further
concessions In prices for mutton stock.
Missouri river prices have been so
high as compared with Chicago that
our markets have suffered nearly as
much decline as the eastern trade
shows. Our receipts have not been aa
heavy in proportion , but the quality
has been poorer. Values for fat sheep
and lambs are now 50c below the high
jx > lnt of the season. Dost lambs are
selling from $7.00 to $7.25 ; yearlings
$5.75 to $0.00 ; wethers $5.40 to $5.50 ;
ewes $1.90 to $5.15. Fair to good mut
ton stock shows a loss in values of
from 50 to 75c , lambs selling from
$0.25 to $6.75 ; yearlings $5.50 to $5.75 ;
wethors $5.00 to $5.40 ; ewes $4.00 to
We look for sheep values to react
soon , but do not look for much Im
provement In lamb prices In the near
future. There Is nothing new that wo
can say by way of advice regarding
shipments as so much has been said
In earlier letters. Feeders have the
future of this market In their own
bauds to "make or break , " and should
keep their unfinished stuff on feed ,
shipping only the good ones. It ia
solely on account of eastern feeders
buying so freely that these medium
grades are not selling lower. But the
capacity of these buyers Is limited.
If western feeders , who are short of
feed and compelled to ship on this ac
count will communicate with us , wo
can arrange to sell their stuff to feed
ers west of here.
Let us know when you ship and
when you reach the nearby feeding
points and remember the "National"
when billing your consignments.
Since our last letter we have made
the following sales of western sheep
and lambs :
471 Colorado fed Mexican wethers ,
average 101) ) , $5.05 ; 199 Nebraska fed
western ewes , average 112 , $5.00 ; 471
