Max Armstrong offers more insight into the challenge of feral pigs

Max Armstrong continues his conversation about feral pigs including money included in the last farm bill to support eradication of the problem. The money is available for swine removal and restoration of damage. However, Max points to some obstacles to reducing the population, including their ability to outpace and outbreed most control issues. Some call it a "wild pig chase." And Max points to another issue – hunting feral swine is a business for some.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
