Forum offers defenses against wild pigs
Feral hog session set for Wednesday in Roswell

Audry Olmsted, NMSU News Center

ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – Feral hogs are notorious for wreaking havoc on farm and rangeland in New Mexico. They also carry diseases that livestock can contract and they destroy crops.

New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service in Roswell has teamed with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services to host the “Southeastern New Mexico Feral Hog Symposium.” The Wednesday event will give area farmers and ranchers the most current information on how to protect themselves and their land from these creatures.

The free symposium will be held from 9 a.m. to noon and will be held at the Farm Bureau Building at the Eastern New Mexico State Fairgrounds.

“The most important information we want participants to learn from this symposium is just how much damage feral hogs can cause,” said Sandra Key Barraza, agricultural agent for Chaves County Extension. “The diseases they carry can become a monetary issue for livestock producers if their animals get sick.

“Whether they already have feral hogs – or might have them in the future – producers will receive the tools and knowledge they need to successfully manage feral hogs at this symposium.”

At the symposium, Sam Smallidge, NMSU Extension wildlife specialist, will discuss the history of the wild pigs.

Brian Archuleta, district supervisor for the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and Wildlife Services in Roswell, will talk about the biology of feral hogs. He will also provide information on the impact they have on farm and rangeland, legislation about the creatures and how to control them.

Adam Wright, with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, will discuss laws and regulations pertaining to feral hogs, hunting and spotlighting.

Barraza said there will be an outdoor demonstration of current equipment and techniques being used to manage feral hogs in New Mexico such as cage traps, corral traps, feeders, bait tubes, radio telemetry and trap transmitters.

The New Mexico Livestock Board will be on hand to address specific questions regarding the effects of feral hogs on livestock in the state.
