Thanks to funding through the 2018 Farm Bill, the Alabama Soil and Water Conservation Committee (ASWCC) has launched a program to help property owners in certain areas of Alabama control feral swine.
The Alabama Feral Swine Control Program, funded by a grant through USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), allowed ASWCC to launch a three-year program to help farmers in select portions of Alabama remove wild pigs from their property.
According to a release from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the program allows landowners to receive assistance to conduct wild pig removal operations and/or receive substantial rebates on purchases of high-tech trapping equipment. This equipment will enable farmers to more easily catch and remove problem wild pigs.
More information about this program will be presented during a Feral Swine Control Program being held April 28 in Bay Minette, Alabama.
