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.
