The NC Feral Swine Task Force invites you to attend a feral swine listening session for livestock and crop producers at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Anson County, in Wadesboro, NC on Thursday, May 23, 2019, from 6–8 p.m. The NC Feral Swine Task Force was formed in 2018 and consists of representatives from the N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (NCDA&CS), the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), the NC Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC), USDA APHIS Veterinary Services (VS), and USDA Wildlife Services (WS).

The agenda will include a short presentation from NCWRC and WS about their missions and services they offer to control feral swine in NC. After these presentations, you will have the opportunity to discuss the problems you are experiencing with feral swine. We want to hear about the issues you are having on your farms, and help you find solutions to these problems.

Informational brochures regarding feral swine will be available, and feral swine disease testing kits from NCDA&CS will be given to those who shoot feral swine.

Snacks and drinks will be furnished for the meeting.

We are asking for participants to RSVP so enough materials can be prepared.

Please contact the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Anson County Center in Wadesboro at 704-694-2915 to register for this session.
