WISCONSIN - January 7, 2015 - A white mink stands upright in its cage at a massive mink farm in Wisconsin, USA, May 10, 2015. Mink farming is a huge business in Wisconsin with large farms using very modern buildings and technical science to harness the power of genetics to develop the highest grade fur for market. Yet, the life of a fur farmed mink is often a short one. At 7-8 months of age mink are either chosen for breeding stock or harvested for their fur.
