I agree with beav. I was there in Port Jervis yesterday and he alrady knew what the average would be, had rats go for $7 down to $1 for a $4.50 average Lol
Same with beaver, but it beats being held at FHA for months.

Jbyrd, 8% commission at herkimer I think, that would be .39/ rat that would mean I cleared $4.54 add .32 / rat for glands that would be $4.86 net.

$6 average on 182 Missouri rats in the country.
They were exceptionally big rats. Only 8 of them were under 2xl.
If youíve got rats and have access to him, you need to give Trevor Barnes a shot at them.

I was at Port Jervis yesterday. I didn't have a lot to sell. Going there I figured if I came home with $600.00 I would be happy. Came home with $765.00.

You guys say you dont have to sell to groany if the price is not agreeable.You can take home what you think is undervalued-I hear that all the time on here as one of the advantages to selling to him over the auction.
Why not just sell the 7 and 6 dollar rats and walk with the ones he low balls you on-the 1 to 3 dollar piles.Take them home and sell him the 7 and 6 dollar ones.

Well there have been times when he won't do the deal unless you sell him all the rats. I know I walked with 150 coon one time. He graded them out In 3 piles. There were 18 $20.00 coon In one pile I wasn't happy with the prices on the other 2 piles. So I said well I'll sell you those 18 coon for $20.00 he said I can't do that. I need to buy them all. Don't know If things have changed or not.

I don't know It was a long time before ever went back. The other time I walked Is when I took him 700 rats that I had pre graded from several 1000 ND rats. He offered me $5.00 at a nose count I walked and got a average of $7.50 at NAFA.

Beav,

This is my point in case. He graded on a predetermined average. If everyone canít see that, I canít help.

He has orders to fill and he knows what the broker Is willing to pay. So he knows what he can pay and still make a profit.

So, you're saying it's more of a math exercise than actual grading?

Putting fur in 3 or 4 different piles is not grading,lol.
