Silverblue Females and Silverblue Velvet Females obtained sales percentages of 93 and 96 percent. Silverblue Females were sold at an average price of 176 DKK and Silverblue Velvet Females obtained an average price 220 DKK.

With this preliminary sale, Kopenhagen Fur has maintained the price levels from the February Auction. However, the sale has been characterized by uncertainty, which has influenced the sales percentage.

- It is mainly the larger skins that have influenced the sales percentage. When we don't sell 100 percent in the auction room, the customers often purchase a few skins afterwards which delays the updates on our auction app for our farmers, says Per Knudsen, Chief Auctioneer at Kopenhagen Fur.  

A total of 6,5 million skins will be offered during the April auction which will continue until Tuesday 2 May.
