Feral Swine

Feral hogs cause thousands of dollars of damage to land and crops every year.  Newberry Soil and Water Conservation District have been selected as one of two counties in South Carolina to be a local partner with the USDA for the feral hog pilot program.

If you are a landowner who knows or suspects their land has a feral hog problem, contact Joseph Berry at 803-597-3160 or  newberrysoilandwater@gmail.com for additional information.  The Animal Plant Health Inspection Service ( APHIS), an agency of the USDA, will provide and administer the trapping and dispose of the feral hogs.  In addition, NRCS has a cost-share assistance program to restore fields that have been severely damaged by feral hogs.
