I liked NAFAs new article posted about their 100% clearance on male breeder ranch mink in this sale. Heck I could get a pile of road killed pancake possum cleared for the right price grin

Does anyone know who sets and schedules the route dates ? Is it NAFA or the agent?

I put just 5 coyotes in a account by their self, just to see how the grade and price came out. For what ever reason NAFA decided to sell those 5 Coyotes for less than half the value they put on the Coyotes,I will never understand. These Coyotes were valued at $37.00 each and sold for $15.00 each. Talk about not giving a diddly XXXX about your fur producers. They had at least 8 months o sell those Yotes before another auction. I have never seen NAFA get so reckless with my fur. I can stand a 3 or 4 dollar drop in price, but to dump something valued at that kind of money, is pure disregard for there producers. I had 3 other accounts that had a pretty darn good amount of Coyotes in each account. Only one of the accounts came up to and over value. all my accounts had Coyotes that was all seasonable and the values were such that I could have made money on the accounts. Why in the holy heck did NAFA see fit to dump these Coyotes at dirt cheap prices when they knew these Coyotes would eventually sell at Value or darn close to it.
I just can't wrap my head around the reasoning of our Auction Company.

Other than the 2X and 3X sizes there currently is no known fur market for otter. Only 230 of all otter offered on this auction sold in the room, this may be one item that NAFA may be doing the shipper a better service selling at PT where they hopefully negotiate a better price. Other than the trinket trade there just is no market for this very attractive fur. Mostly because when you can buy a size 3-0 gold label ranch mink for $32 , why buy an otter that is not much bigger, costs three times the amount to dress, has heavier leather with a ton of cities paperwork, and a big cities charge for the buyer? Notice there are zero Grey fox being offered on this sale as well, no market!

Don,
Maybe trying to appease those that like high clearances and "want their money right away". I'm with you though, stick to the valuation or at least resonably close to it.
It does bring up a number of questions though.
How much discretion does the auctioneer have around the valuation?
Are valuations adjusted when it is obvious that lots are not selling at predetermined valuations.
Valuation can only be determined by what similar lots have sold for recently. With your coyote example, recent value should be obvious since there is an active market. But otter? How do you value them when no one is buying, even at discounted prices?

It seems to happen every year to reduce inventory to make room for the new season and fresh goods.Whatever hasn't sold at the Feb and March sales,seems they push to sell at whatever dollars they can get at the summer and fall sales.It doesn't matter,you can ask about any rep from Nafa and get a "Story" why but never makes any sense.

Redfoxtrap2008 - I would suggest you call the NAFA office in Stoughton and ask what is going on. I'm sure there is a reasonable explanation, but I can't think of one.


If Beav weren't in Alaska, he might be able to get a straight answer for you. He solved the mystery of the dressed muskrats at th May sale.

Still had almost 50 otter left for this sale and they sold 21 of them. All were XXL-LG with one being a 3 XL-XXL. Right at a 36 avg. These were on the sale.

Were those freshly shipped otter or Buy Backs from the May sale?

Average isn't too bad for today's market. IMO
