BROWNWOOD — Texas Cooperative Extension will host a feral hog workshop at 8 a.m. June 8 at the Brown County Fairgrounds.
The fairgrounds are located on U.S. Highway 377 South near Brownwood.
Five Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units will be offered — three general and two integrated pest management.
“We will offer the latest information on feral hogs,” said Scott Anderson, Extension agent for Brown County. “Most agricultural producers hate them and view them as an insidious menace threatening their livelihood. But many hunters like having them around.
“We’ll weigh the pros and cons at this meeting, and Dr. Dale Rollins, Extension wildlife specialist at San Angelo, will discuss this “Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde” situation feral hogs present.”
Other topics will include: “Feral Hogs in Texas – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” “Feral Hog Biology,” “Controlling Feral Hogs,” “Hunting Hogs,” and “Your Feral Hog IQ.”
Individual pre-registration is $15 by June 5 and $20 thereafter.
