124 Rats----$5.12 average----Total $634.85----minus 11% commission= $565.02

on April 17th, Groeny offered $466.25 with a $3.73 average for the same rats.

I guess it payed a little more to ship north with Toby Edwards to FHA this go around.

How much did you want for your rats from groeny when you tried to hawk them at the rat wagon?

I bet you would have still been on the groeny rocks bandwagon if he offered you 4.50 or 5.
Guess he wanted to keep the market depressed by not coming up even a little.

Seems he has the coon market right where he wants it?
Wonder how long that will last if Russia is allowed back into the market

My Winter/Spring rats also did well. All from St. Lawrence Co.

45 sold for an Ave of $5.42, Top of $6.40/ Low of $ 4.40.

Wish would have had a 100, but I had to much area to cover nuisance Beaver calls and not enough time with full time work to focus on the rats. I caught 25 beaver in 8 days and was only able to get 12 ready for the Toby Truck with the rest rolled/vacuum sealed and frozen for Fall evenings in the shed.

Mink a bit better this time, $11.50 and $8.50, both 1x selects.

I suppose that would be correct, but I don't look at deductions per animal type, but by total of all items sold.

Sorry but the total still has an 11% deduct. Just business.

And they charged me shipping costs above the commission when I shipped to them.

Yup, you can calculate averages in any manner that makes you feel good.

I calculate averages by how much money each hide puts in my pocket, so I deduct commissions.
