Sheep Market Slumps
As Demand for Wool
And Pelts Is Small
No demand for wool and the
clothing trade dull with money
scarce is the reason given by sev
eral live stock commission men at
the Omaha stock yards for the
slump in the sheep market the past
"The recent decline in sheep and
lambs may be attributed to the very
sluggish demand for pelts at lower
prices and the fact that live mutton
had become so high that its meat
product was selling out of line with
beef and pork," Oakley C. Willis,
general manager of the local Ar
mour plant, said Wednesday.
Continuing, Mr. Willis said the
trade was due for a downward re
vision of values and that he doubted
that the importation of mutton from
New Zealand was responsible for
the drop in prices.
'"Sheep pelts are not wanted at
this time and as much of our reve
nue on sheep comes from the wool
pulleries it is no more than natural
that sheep and lamb prices should
fall. About a month ago the local
plant of Armour & Co. sold over
15,000 wooled pelts at $4.25 and
$4.35 and these same pelts today are
hard to move at $3 and less.
"Recently we billed a fw pelts to
our own woolery at Katv.as City'
and they were credited to us at $3,
but this figure must be considered
an extreme outside price orf the
open market. Sheared pelts taken (
from shorn lambs are worth only
