Feral Swine Workshop and Trapping Demonstration

  • Union Co. Schools Agriscience Center 225 Lovell Drive Blairsville, GA, 30512 United States (map)

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.
