Coyotes Rule the Day
As expected, the sale of Coyotes was the highlight of today’s auction as the need for this article in the fashion
trade continues to strengthen.
NAFA’s offering of over 51,000 Coyotes sold 100% at significantly advancing levels under strong competition
from Hong Kong, China and Italy in particular.
A fresh collection of sundry owner Muskrats was sold 98%, mainly to Chinese buyers.
There was also improved demand for Raccoons and that translated to a 75% sale of the fresh sundry owner
goods. All sections had good interest with the bigger, heavier Westerns meeting some price resistance.
Lynx sold under strong competition, selling 80% primarily to the Greek/Russian market.
A small collection of sundry owner Beaver sold 72%.
Today’s results have created a positive atmosphere in anticipation of tomorrow’s mink sale.
