PELT PRODUCTION DOWN: Mink pelt production in the United States in 1976 totaled
3.0 million pelts, down 1 percent from 1975. However,
Wisconsin, the major mink State, produced 926,000 pelts, up 1 percent from a
year ago. By color class, the number of pelts as a percent of the total 1976
production was: Standard, 32.9 percent; pastel, 21.9 percent; pearl, 8.9 percent;
demi-buff, 17.6 percent; violet, 7.9 percent and the remaining color classes
accounted for 10.8 percent.
