Fur Farming-Mink and Muskrat
Fur Farming-Mink and Muskrat-Does the mink and muskrat throw an odor similar to the skunk when disturbed? In raising mink would the pen become saturated with the odor and cause much scent. Would you advise a few being kept near city limits?
Not to a distance, as the skunk does. However, the mink has a very powerful and lasting scent. The muskrat scent is musk, like perfumery, and is not disagreeable. Not enough to hurt. I think that a great deal of fur is going to be raised in and near cities in the future, and you will find it profitable.
