The feral hog dilemma in Texas seems to be a curse that won’t go away, but rather seems to be intensifying. Dr. Billy Higginbotham, Extension Specialist, Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Overton, will speak to soil and water conservation district directors attending the 71st annual meeting of Soil and Water Conservation Districts about the current feral hog problem in the state. The annual meeting, which draws some 600 conservation district officials from over the state, will be held Monday through Wednesday, Oct. 24-26, in San Antonio at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort.

Higginbotham will talk about current research supporting control efforts with respect to the feral hog dilemma in Texas in an afternoon workshop on Tuesday. He will also talk about the reasons behind the current feral hog population levels in the state, as well as the legal control methods and best management practices associated with each method. The characteristics of damage caused by the hogs also will be addressed.

According to a recent study by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M University Institute for Renewable Natural Resources, about 134 million acres, or 79 percent of the state’s total of 170 million acres, is feral hog habitat.

For more information, call 254-773-2250.
