Fur Trade

Fur is mostly farmed from raising the following species on a farm; mink, fox, chinchilla, Finn raccoon, Rex rabbit, karakul sheep and some other furbearing animals. Over 80% of pelts used in the world fur trade come from farmed species.

50% of the pelts produced in North America today are from the wild. North America is the largest producer of high-quality wild furs, including muskrat, beaver, raccoon, marten, fox, coyote, bobcat and lynx. Some wild furs also come from Russia (sable), Europe (fox), South America (fox, nutria), and other regions.
