VICE PRESIDENT’S REPORT

Hope all is going well to each and everyone out there in the fur shed. The first auction is now over. The markets were down, but each dollar you get is still more than you had. No one is forcing you to go out and harvest the furs and nobody is forcing you to sell your harvest. It is totally unnecessary for anyone to throw a fit in a public place and in front of a group of people that were there to make the best of it.

Auction results were as follows:

Badger — Four sold, High $10.50, Average $4.63
Beaver — Nine sold, High $6, Average $5.05
Bobcat — 11 sold, High $48, Average $23.23
’Coon — 548 sold, High $15.50, Average $8.30
Coyote — 26 sold, High $11, Average $8.27
Mink — 1 sold, $10
Muskrat — 17 sold, High $3, Average $2.81
Opossum — 27 sold, High $0.50, Average $0.31
Red Fox — 9 sold, High $13, Average $ 9.11
Skunk — 2 sold, High $0.50, Average $0.38

Until next time, happy furharvesting.

— Roger Macy
