    There were 10 buyers at the NYSTA sale. There were under 1000 rats on the sale. Thats not enough to draw any kind of conclusion from. More than likely a few guys fighting and overpaying in order to buy a handful of rats. The million brown mink that go on sale this week, will tell the new market story. By Friday, it will be history. After Kopenhagen, the handwriting will be on the wall for rat $$$ at NAFA and FHA at end of month. Sale at Bares this Sat. and MTPCA sale in Kzoo next week.

    OK. Increased attendance at Kopenhagen. Prices were slightly advanced, mainly due to the 10% decrease in US $$. Didn't translate into anything particularly promising. The market remains stagnant. Turning out to be no new news. Lots of trappers sales. The big Western coyote sales with thousands of skins=a weaker coyote and cat market. Same old, same old on the Eastern sales. Next big sale MTPCA sale in Kzoo, I'll be there.

    Thanks for the update Freepop and Furandhides.
    Looks like some decent highs and averages. Wish I could have made it.

    Those $$ about ave. now. market definitely softer. State auction, your gonna pay at least ,25 over market. If not, you go home empty.
