Feral Swine Information Meetings in Blackwell and Pawnee
Feral hogs are a major problem for the agricultural community, as well as some urban communities, causing millions in damage to land and crops each year. Feral hogs pose disease risks to livestock, pets and humans.

Two events are scheduled next week to focus on efforts regarding this issue:

  • The Feral Swine Information Meeting hosted by the Oklahoma Conservation Commission and the Kay County Conservation District is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., May 24 in The Kay Room, 200 W. Doolin in Blackwell. RSVP to the Kay County Conservation District at (580) 362-2438.

  • The Feral Swine Information Meeting hosted by the Oklahoma Conservation Commission, the Osage County Conservation District and the Pawnee County conservation District, is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., May 25 in The Womens Center, 510 Memorial Road in Pawnee, OK. RSVP to the Osage County Conservation District, (918) 287-3570, Ext. 3.

Trey Lam, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission, said, “Feral hog damage to crops and natural resources has climbed to the top of local priority issues raised by local Conservation Districts. Assessing hog damage and identifying landowners needing feral hog control is a job ideally suited to the locally-led Conservation Districts.”

The Oklahoma Feral Swine project is strongly moving forward.
