Help USDA Estimate Feral Swine Damage to U.S. Agriculture

Help USDA Estimate Feral Swine Damage to U.S. Agriculture

USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), in coordination with the National Feral Swine Damage Management Program, is conducting a Feral Swine Survey. We will use the data we collect to:

  • Estimate the costs of feral swine damage to agricultural commodities
  • Better understand the impacts of this invasive species on U.S. agriculture
  • Help stakeholders make informed feral swine management decisions and more effectively allocate resources to reduce damage

NASS mailed questionnaires to more than 11,000 producers growing corn, soybeans, wheat, rice, peanuts, and sorghum in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas during the last week of June 2022. If you or someone you know received a survey, please be sure to send in your responses by August 12, 2022.
