In an auction room that was very active and full throughout the day, the sale of both White and Pearl male and female mink achieved high clearances. Prices were firm on most regular goods. However, short nap White mink increased modestly over recent levels.
Today’s biggest buyer was Hong Kong/China with Korea, again, strongly supporting better qualities.
Lynx Cats sold 75% of the fresh goods with better qualities and colors achieving strong price advances over 2017. The average for Western Lynx Cats was $378.99 with a top price of $2,400.00.
