Scope and content
After working on several farms in Manitoba the McGuckins moved to Winnipeg where they both obtained employment with a large department store. Missing the land, Mr. McGuckin soon began to tire of his job and when the opportunity of residing on a mink ranch came about he jumped at the chance. His enterprise has now expanded to the extent that he employs a Canadian family of five to help him raise and breed mink. Last year (1962) he marketed 1,600 mink pelts which brought an average price of $17. each. His gross income in 1962 was over $27,000. Their home, which is fully paid for, is valued at $25,000. The McGuckins have two children, Isabelle seven, and Roy one.
