FUR PRODUCTION In North America during the early 1900s, there was considerable interest in raising ferrets for their fur. European furriers were already buying and using ferret pelts. The early success of ferrets for fur production in North America was limited, partly because of the capricious behavior of fur buyers, the musky odor of the pelt, and the tendency for hair to fall from it . Nevertheless, commercial ferret farming for fur production has recently become more popular, and ferret farms exist in parts of the United States, Canada, certain countries in Europe, and New Zealand.
