Farmers Encouraged to Report Feral Hog Sightings

As farmers know, feral hogs can be detrimental to crops, pastures, and infrastructure, as well as a serious risk for the spread of disease to livestock. Wildlife agencies, in cooperation with various stakeholders across the commonwealth, have managed to suppress the population in Virginia, but there is still work to be done to achieve eradication. Farmers who see feral hogs or experience hog damage are encouraged to contact the Wildlife Conflict Helpline at 1 (855-571-9003).

Virginia Farm Bureau members with questions or concerns can also contact Stefanie Taillon at 804-363-9505 or stefanie.taillon@vafb.com.
