Denmark is the world’s largest producer of mink skins. The country began instituting a series of protective measures in the summer of 2020 to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) on Danish mink farms, but outbreaks have persisted. After an increase in cases in late September, the Danish government has opted to cull mink farms infected with COVID-19, those suspected of being infected, as well as healthy herds within a radius of 8 kilometers of an infected herd. In total, roughly one million mink are expected to be culled over the coming months. While the government’s decision was supported by the Danish Mink Breeders Association, the industry has expressed disappointment with the Government’s compensation program.
