Summary: Feral swine have become increasingly detrimental in Georgia, causing significant damage to agricultural crops and natural resources throughout the State. The economic impact of feral hogs exceeded $150 million in 2016. A number of agricultural and natural resource organizations are partnering together to bring Georgia’s top experts on feral swine together in a series of educational workshops for farmers and landowners. Topics will include disease issues, swine biology, economics, water quality issues, effective control techniques, transport issues, and regulations to be followed by a question and answer panel of experts and trapping demonstration. Lunch will be provided.
