“Feral hogs or wild pigs are responsible for millions of dollars of damage annually throughout Texas and are a pest in other states as well,” said Lyle Larson, the show’s originator. “And brush control is always a major land-management issue in this state and others.”
Dr. Bob Lyons, Texas AgriLife Extension Service range specialist at the Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Uvalde, will present a Brush Control 101 program at 10 a.m. on Oct. 14.
Also during the show, Dr. Jim Gallagher, AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist for the Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Uvalde, will present two educational programs relating to feral hogs.
