All mink farms must close down

In March next year all mink farms in the Netherlands have to stop. Recently, 40 farms already had to close down because the corona virus had been discovered in the minks.

A lot of people think it’s pathetic and are against animals being kept for their fur. That is why there was already an agreement to ban breeding from 2024. In 4 years time. But because the government finds it dangerous that the animals can get the corona virus, the breeding farms have to close down before then

No new mink

There are currently 120 mink farms left in the Netherlands. They are still allowed to use the minks that are already there for their fur. After that, the companies are not allowed to take any new minks.
