Mille Merrild (1988)
I grew up on a farm in West Denmark with mink and broiler chickens as main produce. After high school, I worked for a year at my parents fur farms, which taught me to appreciate and respect the animals and the use of them. Educated within communication and always with a great interest in societal matters and politics, my passion for the fur industry was natural as the industry is much discussed in media. My motivation and dedication to fur farming is fueled by the criticism as my main belief is that human beings should not go against history of mankind and that as long as the use of animals is respectful and considerate, the end use is less relevant.
Today, I live in Brussels where I work in communication for the European Fur Breeders’ Association (EFBA).
