Secretary answering the phone in Stoughton said Check and fees would be made right in October. That leaves them 6 more days. If it doesnít happen NAFA is out of my picture. They also need to address the problem of grading 60 some sandhill caught coyotes as easterns. Furs shipped intact that end up damaged. They need to quit grading by zipcode of the shipper

IMO, if SAGA is looking out for their investments, they'd gain control of NAFA and close them down. It would benefit them two ways. First it would eliminate one big source for buyers and second, it would shut down some production of ranch furs which would also benefit them.

That is looking at it from a businesses perspective.

I agree. SAGA is after the North American mink production, some of which is the finest in the world. There are also labels involved, like Blackglma. In high fashion, labels are important. And yes, there are still mink coats in high fashion.

I can see that WissMiss, if it sells above production costs.

Without knowing the terms of their agreement, a good CEO would only keep solvent what will make them money. Time will tell what the terms are.

Blackgamma males selling at around $35 average. Not much value here.

The one thing I learned over the years from NAFA is every sale benefits from bringing the most buyers together.

Someone should call Kopenhagen.

Name me one country fur buyer other then groney that I could ship my fur to.
What would it cost me to ship 200 coon and 40 coyotes to some western fur buyer? So I don't like the grade and they ship them back on their dime. I'm still out my original shipping cost. That Is not going to happen.

What about Weibke? He is a major buyer and right on the Minnesota/Wisconsin border. Just as close as Groenwald, isnít he.

Weibke Is a 6 hour round trip from where I'm at. That's a bit of a haul to find out you don't like his prices. I don't think they run any routes.
Groney Is 15 miles from my door so as far as I can see he Is my only option If NAFA goes belly up.

So you ship them to auction and don't like the grade, you have no say and can't get them back and your out commission fees and drumming. Auction isn't always the highest price either, I've been shipping to buyers the past 3 years and am very happy with my results.

So no one Is stating how much these shipping cost are on a large shipment of fur. And I'm thinking coon aren't going to cut It on most of these western sales. You could be $200 $300.00 in the red before they even see that fur.
