Brief Project Summary:

Oklahoma Wildlife Services has utilized a variety of methods to reduce feral swine damage to crops such as thermal imaging, wireless trail cameras, and corral traps. Wildlife Services has been using tripwire for corral trap gates, and in some instances, other animals have triggered the trap door, making it difficult to catch the swine. With this project Wildlife Services will add trapping gate units, wireless trail cameras, material for new corral traps, and two grain carts. This will reduce the likelihood of non-target species triggering corral trap doors, and increase the feral swine capture, which will help Oklahoma soybean producers alleviate damages to their fields.

Information And Results
Project Deliverables

Oklahoma WS will also be in contact and share information about the disease study with the National Feral Swine program and be a part of trainings for using state-of-the-art devices as well as train others to use devices to help prevent threat to soybean producers, human health and safety. WS proposes that the Oklahoma Soybean Board assist with the cost of the procurement. WS will regularly conduct outreach and workshops with stakeholders on management efforts to educate the public about feral swine that have a negative impact on Oklahoma’s agricultural producers.

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
