AUSTIN -- Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples called upon all 254 Texas counties to participate in Hog Out Month -- a statewide challenge to decrease the state’s feral hog population. This challenge, according to an Aug. 30 Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) press release, will coordinate various feral hog removal strategies implemented across the state into one statewide effort.
It is estimated 2 million feral hogs live in Texas, causing hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage across the state each year. The statewide challenge, which kicks off Saturday, Oct. 1, during Hog Out Month, will run through Saturday, Dec. 31. Grants will be awarded to the five counties with the most hogs removed and highest participation in feral hog abatement programs. The deadline for counties to submit a notice of intent to participate is Friday, Sept. 30.
In October 2010, Staples kicked off the first county challenge to rally Texans to reduce the number of feral hogs in the state.
Additionally, TDA works with the Wildlife Services branch of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, which removes thousands of hogs annually through various feral hog abatement strategies that result in an estimated savings of more than $4 million to Texas landowners.
Landowners are encouraged to call their local AgriLife Extension Agent for information on feral hog control measures.
Counties may obtain a notice of intent to participate in the Hog Out Month challenge by calling 512-463-6695 or e-mailing Grants@TexasAgriculture.gov.
