NAFA opened its February 2017 auction with one of the largest buyer attendances we have seen for a Coyote sale in the last 10 years.
All major trimming markets competed aggressively and as expected, prices increased sharply for nearly all Western sections. In the Western Coyotes, price advances exceeded our expectations and resulted in the highest averages obtained over the last three years. Better colour Easterns also advanced and commercial sections sold, but did not experience the same price increases.
Throughout the sale, better quality, paler skins were well sought after and Italy, Hong Kong, Canada and mainland China were the main buyers.
The Top Lot of Coyote was purchased by Rebellato Graziano S.A.S of Italy for $46o.
A small number of Ranch Fox sold 100% at advancing levels.
