The Alapaha Conservation District is excited to announce their participation in Georgia Association of Conservation District(GACD)’s Feral Swine District Initiative. Landowners in Berrien, Clinch, Cook, Echols, Lanier and Lowndes Counties are invited to participate in the District’s feral swine control services.
Several Conservation Districts in Georgia have partnered with GACD for funding to acquire feral swine control equipment. Conservation Districts then contract with local Hog Control Custodians who perform eradication services within the District.
Landowners and producers across the state report that GACD’s Feral Swine District Initiative has made a tremendous difference in reducing feral swine damage. Farmers who have been forced to make a decision not to plant peanuts, corn, or soybeans in some of their best soils due to feral swine damage are now considering planting these crops.
