Missouri Ag Connection - 06/03/2020
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is offering a new video series chronicling the impact feral swine have on Americans' livelihoods through damage to agricultural and natural resources. The first in the series, Episode 1- Mississippi looks at the impacts feral swine have on large and small farmers as well as the levee system, natural resources, and archaeological sites.
The National Feral Swine Damage Management Program was established in 2014 with the overarching goal to protect agricultural and natural resources, property, animal health, and human health and safety by managing damage caused by feral swine in the United States and its territories. This video series was facilitated by the program to share the deeper stories of those who are impacted by feral swine.
