145 Fur Animals
Eat Horse Every

and are ready to become a pelt.
Mink born this spring will be a $20
to $30 pelt on the fur markets
this fall. Of course, a number are
kept for breeding.
They thrive in this section, and
horse meat is their favorite food,
taking five ounces a day. The
carcass of a mink is worthless as
a food for even other mink. Mr.
Moody uses it by grinding it up
fine, bones and all, and making
fertilizer from it for his farm.
The most valuable animal on the
Smoky Fur Farm is the silver fox.
Mr, Moody has 12 of these, and
they are kept in pens 30 by 4 feet.
Their pelts bring from f50 to $200
each. Sometimes when things go
wrong, the foxes bark so loud they
can be heard a half mile. The fox
does not multiply as fast as the
mink, yet they eat about the same
diet, and their carcass is likewise
useless except for fertilizer.
The 14 head of beavers is the
source of much comment. They
eat vegetables, and must have their
2-foot pool of water.
If a beaver only knew it, he
would get to live a lots longer on
a fur farm if he refused to go
near the water. Their long fur
gets matted and worthless unless
they give it a frequent shampoo.
Their sharp front feet act as a
comb, and after a play in the pool,
they sit for long periods on the
bank, combing their fur. Of course
this makes their fur fluffy, clean,
and untangled, and bring from $12
to $15 each, Mr. Moody has no
ticed some of the beavers stay
ing under water for five minutes
at a time. They will eat carrots,
cabbage, corn, potatoes, or almost
any garden product, but no meat.
The other 11 animals on the
farm are the Siberian Golden fitch.
Resembles in many respects the
American mink, except for color.
Mr. Moody started out with a pair
last fall, and the first litter netted
him nine, which makes eleven fitch
in all. They also confine their diet
to five ounces of horse meat a day.
Their pelts bring about $10 each.
Raising fitch in this section is
an experiment, and from all indi
cations this area suits them fine,
as other fitch raisers point out
that seven to the litter is high.
The mink, fox and fitch get 80
per cent meat and 20 per cent mix
tures of prepared food. The horse
meat is gotten by butchering old
worn out horses, and grinding up
bones, flesh and all. This is frozen
and used as needed. At present,
Mr. Moody's 145 animals are'eat-

group of students has carried into
Oklahoma the training received at
the college. This year, however,
a group of four undergraduate stu

will be gladly received and answer
ing an average horse every three
weeks.: Before all the babies ar
rived, one horse would feed his
animals about six or eight weeks.
Mr. Moody went to a fur grow
ers convention in Michigan and
there bought several pairs of ani
mals, and discussed problems with
some of the largest growers in the
United States and Canada.
He has given the project enough
testing and knows it is, profitable,
as well as interesting work since
he started two years ago.
