No Mo’ Mink, More Problems

An amendment to ban mink farming could have ramifications on other the ag sectors.

The Animal Ag Alliance says that producers should be watching what happens at the federal level very closely.

Several animal rights groups back the amendment, saying that 80 percent of mink fur in the U.S. is sold to China. That could create trigger activists to target other animal ag industries. The Animal Ag Alliance says that as the bill moves to conference, farmers need to testify.
