Bejstrup Mink I/S
At Bejstrup Mink I/S, the carts with furs could barely pass through the narrow doors. Nonetheless, every year 40,000-45,000 mink furs were pelted in the small pelting center.
Bejstrup Mink I/S has existed since 1967 until the forced closure of the Danish mink industry in 2020. The farm was run by father and son, Mogens and Lasse Jensen.
At the farm in North Jutland you could feel the passion ouse out as Lasse told passionately about the processes in the day-today operations and the farms lifelong process.
In 2002, Bejstrup Mink bought their first FIX-1 pinning machine and since then, they have ben keeping pace with developments as Minkpapir presented new and improved equipment for the pinning proces.

At Hans Jørgen Siem in Western Jutland, the pinning process ran smoothly using equipment from Minkpapir.
In the middle of the fur season in 2019, we visited Pelcenter Vestjylland. As you can see in the video, it was a large pelting centre with many FIX-2,7 pinning machines and other equipment from Minkpapir.
Pelscenter Vestjylland has existed since 2003.
In 1962, Svenn Gregersen started breeding mink, and has for more than 50 years pelted his own mink on the farm in North Jutland.
Svenn has, if anyone, experienced how the development of pinning machines has facilitated the pinning process and increased the size of the the furs. In addition, he has been part of the development and testing of the very early pinning machines.
Check out the video to see how the pinning proces takes place at Svenn’s farm in North Jutland.
