Until further notice i will not be buying fur…between the market and lack of time with family things I just cant fit it in.
Here are some of the results that NAFA has posted for coyotes, muskrat, raccoon.
Coyotes and Fox have sold at the May auction and the heavy coyotes are still selling at 100%. Prices have come back to last years prices with the number of coyotes hitting 100,000 for this auction. Non prime coyotes are still struggling as well as red fox. All of the fox in this part of the country will be in the pale category to medium. We really dont have any deep cherry red coyotes like back east has. Here is a link to the results.
Well, I guessed wrong…coyotes look to have recovered to record highs for this sale at least. Make sure you get your coyotes sold while they are hot. I still am done buying for the year but if the next sale continues i will be buying next year for sure!
As coyotes recovered it looks as the same for bobcats. Still low compared to previous years
The first auction of the year is going to be on February 9th…will update what the market is doing after. Unfortunately I didnt recieve much good news this year on things recovering so I have stopped buying for the year as many of you already know. Stay tuned for some good news hopefully next week.
Looks like NAFA is in sell everything mode as things are finally selling but at lower prices. Coyotes dropped 35% for me this year which means next years on carcass prices will not be nearly as generous. But with things selling maybe new markets will arise and things will head in the right direction next year at auction! HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
Bobcats sold at a higher percentage. Prices were fair to good also it looks like.
Most of the wild fur has gone to auction and results are more of the same with coyotes looking like they topped out last year…prices were better than the first auction this year though.
