Only 13 Fur Farmers Attend Fur Commission USA Conference

This former mink farm (shown), which confined and killed tens of thousands of animals every year is now closed.

Challis Hobbs and the Fur Commission USA invited every mink farmer to their most recent meeting. Only 13 showed.

Only 60 mink farms remain in the U.S., down from 274 ten years ago.
