Mixed Results on Day Two of NAFA Wild Fur Sale

May 20, 2014

NAFA’s Wild Fur sale continued today with differing results, depending on the article. Beaver met resistance mainly due to the lower mink prices but also the cost of dressing Beaver remains an issue.

Coyotes, however, sold under strong competition and all the better quality trimming pelts sold 100 % at very firm prices, while the commercial goods were easier. This is a result of the popularity of winter parkas driven mainly by top-end Italian, European and Canadian fashion houses.

Lynx Cats sold under strong competition, mostly at firm to slightly easier prices and dominated by Greece, with good support from Italy and other markets. The better quality goods with clear bellies were in very strong demand.

Lynx sold 70% with Greece, once again, dominating the purchases.

Red fox sold 95% under good competition. Grey fox sold 30%.
