from 1978. Wisconsin, the major mink State, produced 978 thousand pelts, 3
percent fewer than the 1004 thousand pelts produce in 1978.


By color class, the number of pelts as a percent of the
production was: Standard, 36.1 percent; ranch wild, 6.1 percent;
19.5 percent; pastel, 17.2 percent; pearl, 5.0 percent; violet, 5.2
and the remaining color classes accounted for 10.9 percent.

dollars for pelts sold during the 1978 crop year. The average price per pelt
