As Illinois trapping season nears, fur market shows some movement
I’ve had a number of long talks with Guy Groenewold (Groenewold Fur & Wool – the largest private fur buyer in North America) this year about the fur industry. GFW is interesting because they buy and sell fur every day all year long. This gives them a particularly useful insight about the fur industry at any given point in time (albeit biased by what furs they sell and how they sell them). Auctions give you a snapshop, GFW sales give you a much more nuanced and more accurate picture of what’s happening in the industry on a day to day basis.
