LULING -- The Texas AgriLife Extension Service, in cooperation with the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board, will conduct a free Feral Hog Management Workshop Tuesday, Feb. 14, from 8:30 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. in the Luling Civic Center.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. Five Texas Department of Agriculture pesticide applicator continuing education units are being offered -- two general, two integrated pest management, and one laws and regulations.

Topics at the workshop will include feral swine biology, population dynamics, the impact of feral hogs in the Plum Creek Watershed, Plum Creek Watershed Protection Plan implementation, a research update, feral hog hunting laws and regulations, agricultural regulations related to feral hogs, and control, safety, and disease concerns.

According to the Texas Department of Agriculture, Texas has one of the largest feral hog populations of any state, and AgriLife Extension has estimated that the destructive habits of hogs cause about $52 million in damages annually to Texas farms, ranches, and the state’s agriculture industry. Feral hogs are also significant contributors of pollutants to creeks and rivers across the state.

Workshop attendees are asked to preregister through the AgriLife Extension office for Caldwell County by Friday, Feb. 10, to ensure an accurate count for meals and handouts.

The workshop includes lunch, refreshments, and handouts.

For more information or to preregister, visit the office at 1403 Blackjack St., Suite B, in Lockhart or call 512-398-3122 or email

Additional information on feral hogs and feral hog control is available at feralhogs and
