Future Meetings

There are currently no meetings scheduled

Feral hogs cause an estimated $52 million of damage to agriculture annually in Texas and they are increasing in numbers across the state. They like to wallow in stream systems leading to sediment and bacteria entering our waterways.

We offer assistance through landowner visits, providing recommendations on ways to control feral hogs, as well as giving presentations to groups of landowners educating them on methods of feral hog control. In addition, we are working on writing several publications that will provide valuable information on controlling damage caused by feral hogs.

To assess how landowners are managing to reduce hogs we developed a statewide reporting system; this system is an effective tool that tracks management efforts and is available at http://feralhogreports.tamu.edu.

There are two types of reporting on the website, one for landowners and another for the general public. As a landowner, we would like you to join us in gathering information on feral hog reduction efforts through our secured login system. Information provided by individuals will be kept private. We will use this information as leverage to bring additional resources (grant dollars) in the fight against feral hogs. If you would rather provide me a written copy of your report, I would be glad to enter the data for you.

We have also developed a wide range of information and publications concerning feral hogs which can be found at:
