There is one for sure there maybe two in WI that came from Europe. If there is a profit to be made in ranch fur there will be rancher raising that fur. This whole down scaling and market change is an opportunity for the industry to expand in more labor, political and economically lower cost regions of the world and there sure is enough money in the world to go that if those with the money choose to invest. With hundreds of ranchers now out of business a firm or individual with resources can hire or create as a partner some of the most skilled ranchers, breeders etc. in the world. If pelt numbers increased from roughly 50-80 million in a half a decade won't take long to grow back if there is a reason to do so.

I would think when it comes to the marketing of our wares we all have similar goals confused


Still holding out for Boco's predicted $8 rats? I think he meant top price. Normal M.O.

Apparently the mink farmers are banned until 2022, but received a bailout.

Yea dirt I am. Back in September I wonder how many ranchers felt mink would more than double? It’s happened before.

Who is selling rats? Not I.

Dirt, I've been saying we'll see 8 dollar rats in the next 12 to 18 months.

Tack on the castor value,Les,and beaver are one furbearer worth going after.
Can catch good numbers fairly quick and they are a pleasure to put up compared to other animals of their size.

At $20.00 averages on beaver I would rather catch some $6.00 coon. Easy to catch In numbers easy to carry to the truck. Coon put up Is about 15 min job from start to finish.

Sounds like rats continue be demand with little better prices, I don't think coon well go up more than a little by coming season, if can go trapping I hope an try get more rats , going order another dz 110s an 38 inch long h stands or stablizers , possibly try renew permission in some creeks I could go but trouble trap thieves around in sone an other trouble, that always problem with set bunch traps out in 1 location, ripoff, trap theft in Iowa is got be worse in country I heard , thieves are nasty around Iowa an do more than steal traps or some do, I don't like it that got ur addy on tag

Les, what are you going to do with all that cash? You are going to be living high on the hog, that's for sure. The girls hear about that they are going to be calling. Be Safe

In reality that’s where the money is. Millions of uniform and expensive skins per sale.

When Nafa collapsed they could not find anyone to even take over the wild fur.

Ranchers also support the auctions, where trappers tend to vacillate.

If you look at the sold catalogues for beaver you can see that probably just a few buyers bought them all. String after string of 50-60 beaver all at the same price.

I got $53 for this size and grade in the May 2013 FHA sale.

Do you have to have an account to see the actual lots? The only I could download was the 2-page highlights pdf.

There is a sold catalog you can click on on the home page for the current auction. Old ones are under Buyers at the top of the homepage.
