Texas: Wild Hog Workshop Scheduled May 23 in Seguin

    The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas State Soil and Water Board will present the Geronimo Creek Feral Hog Workshop from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. May 23 at the Ag Heritage Center, 290 Cordova Road, Seguin.

    Registration begins at 8 a.m.

    Speakers will include representatives of AgriLife Extension, Texas Animal Health Commission, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Wildlife Services and the Texas Department of Agriculture.

    Topics will include basic ecology and biology, feral hog effects on the Brazos River watershed, regulations for transporting, disease concerns, population dynamics and control techniques, including traps, as well as hunting regulations. There also will be discussion of feral hog resources available to the landowner.

    “Each year feral hogs do millions of dollars of damage to property, crops and watersheds, as well as serving as potential vectors for disease,” said Jeff Hanselka, AgriLife Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources, Guadalupe County. “This program will give participants some useful information about feral hogs, especially their behavior and ways to manage them.”

    Hanselka said they have applied for five Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units — two general, two integrated pest management and one in laws and regulations — for commercial, non-commercial and private applicators attending the program.

    The cost is $25 and includes lunch. Preregistration is required by May 20 to ensure an accurate meal count.

    Preregister by calling the AgriLife Extension office for Guadalupe County at 830-303-3889 or email Hanselka at
