According to Madhhab: 

Hanafi

Reference: 

1440-153

Question: 

a person, after doing his Waajib Qurbani donated the skin, or rather, gifts the skin of the Qurbani animal to the owner of the farm where Qurbani was carried out. once the owner takes possession of the skin which was gifted to him, he sells it to a particular person. the funds accrued from the sale of the skin is then donated as Lillah to a particular institute. 
Is the sale of the skin valid as the normal Mas'ala is that selling of Qurbani meat is not permitted? 
Is the Lillah donation to the institute in order? 

Answer: 
The laws pertaining to the meat/skin of the Qurbani animal apply to the person offering the Qurbani, hence it is not permissible for him to sell the meat/skin of the Qurbani animal. It is however permissible for him to gift the meat/skin of the Qurbani animal to whomsoever he wishes. (Fataawa Mahmudiyyah Vol. 17 Pg. 459) 
In the mentioned scenario he has gifted the skin to the owner of the farm. Once the owner of the farm took possession of the skin he could do as he pleases with it, the sale and donation would therefore be in order. (Fataawa Mahmudiyyah Vol. 17 Pg. 462)
