Policy needs to recognise feral pig threat to SA agriculture, environment

Documents & Downloads

In general terms, Livestock SA supports the draft policy and its objectives on the management of feral pigs in South Australia. However, Livestock SA is disappointed that the draft policy gives scant attention to the disease risk posed by feral pigs. As Livestock SA represents sheep, beef cattle and goat producers, we are also worried at the risks of spreading diseases to these animals and are concerned that the draft policy does not go far enough. There needs to be a well funded coordinated program if the State is to ensure that there is not an increase in numbers of feral pigs in this State that threatens both our agriculture and the environment.
