not much to talk about because everything was bought back. Stupid to have 2 auctions this close together, especially in a down market. They should split the difference and run routes accordingly.

Nothing is just about what happened with everything but coyote and they did not set the world on fire either. Should be an interesting NAFA Report.

This was my first time using NAFA and I must say I like the simplicity of the process. I have a question though. I received lotting letters ( I think that is what its called) for my beaver, coyote, and muskrat but I never received anything for my foxes. Is that normal?

If you sent grey fox, wild silver fox and certain grades/sections of red fox - they were not offered on this sale. They are being held for the next sale - February 2019. You will receive a lotting letter on them on the first day of inspection. Which is about 7 months from now, give or take a few weeks.

It is too bad they did this but they did not have enough fresh goods to be put decent lots. Do they didn't.

For future reference, in the current state of the fur market, you should make every effort to get your fur on the middle sale. That is THE major sale of the year. The July sale (and the August sale in 2019) are clean up sales. The time to be buying not selling.

PDH.. what do you mean recieved? I have never gotten anything from them pre-auction in the mail. lotting letters are the grade of your fur with the lot number. I find mine online in my account. I have 13 fox on the auction . 11 are baught back. $9 bucks is the high one;-)

In the old days, I mean really old days, you would receive a lotting letter from the auction company a few days before the sale. I mean a real, honest to goodness, paper letter via snail mail.

I'm quite sure PDH is talking about his on-line lotting letter.

Agreed I thought my stuff was gonna be in the May sale kinda ticks me off, if nafa don't want crap from are section don't take it, but don't fanagle crap they might not get no more of my fur at least from me! I did ok on rats nothing else sold I'll see about my coon on sunday! If my buyers was reachable id have never sent them to Canada in the first place! Oh well lessons learned!

Indiana always has a pickup route for the May auction. I just drive my stuff across the river into southern Indiana and throw it on the truck. Been doing that for a few years now. Fur gets on the May auction.

Nafa should only have one sale a year. More clearances and higher prices.

Other auctions should only have one sale a year too.

So you think 80 million ranch mink could be sold all at one time?

My online account showed my other furs along with their grades and lot numbers. The foxes didn't show up in my account at all. Sounds like foxes didn't sell so I guess that's why.

Has Nafa ever sold 80 million ranch mink in one year before?
