Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta foturdoY, July 4, 1970 THE IHHBRIDGf HERALD 19 Ottawa Weekly Livestock Report OTTAWA (CP) Cattle de- liveries at the 10 public stock- yards from Monday to Thurs- day this week dropped sharply to from last week as a result of Wednesday's holi- day. The quality of the slaughter cattle offered was generally good and trade active to un- even with tower receipts. Choice and good carcasses graded accounted for about two-thirds of total slaughter un- der inspection. Exports of feeder cattle to the U.S. totalled only 33 head last week compared with 362 head a the same time a year ago. To date this year the total movement of feeder cattle at only head is starply be- low last year's movement of head. The lower movement cf feed- ers to the U.S. is largely due to the strong domestic demand for feed lot replacements along with the fact that beef heifers are being retained in breeding herds for expansion purposes. As in the previous weeks the replacement cattle market showed a wide difference' in weight and quality. Good feed- er steers at Toronto and Win- nipeg remained unchanged from the previous week at to and to respective- ly In Alberta, Calgary gained just 20 cents at to but Edmoton at to closed lower. Good stock steer calves ait Winnipeg showed lit- tle change from previous weeks at to about Edmonton remained at tc aiid Saskatoon also closec at a high of with a low of Most western markets ted insufficient offerings o- good calves which prevented the1 market becoming establish- ed and this was reflected in part by the holiday in mid' week.
