The welfare of each fur-bearing animal in a fur farm should be highly considered not just to comply with animal ethics, local, and animal policies but also to obtain quality furs. Along with a balanced diet, good housing conditions, and proper care and handling, this helps develop fur-bearing animals that are less stressed. A study at Aarhus university demonstrated a high correlation between mink behavior and fur quality. A veterinarian should be available to advise for health-related concerns for the animals kept at the fur farm.

Mink enteritis virus (MEV) strain used for mink vaccine production has been propagated in adherent culture of embryonic feline lung fibroblasts (E-FL). Roller bottle culture of these cell lines is limiting in terms of scale-up of adherent cells; Esco VacciXcell fixed-bed bioreactors including TideXcell® and CelCradle™, provides the linear scalability of scaling up instead of scaling out.
