Wildlife control forum is July 21 in Easton
EASTON — The Maryland Farm Bureau and the Department of Natural Resources will hold a free Farm Wildlife Control forum from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. July 21 at the Talbot Ag Center in Easton.
The forum is aimed at state residents and farm owners who want to learn how to address wildlife-caused damage on their farms.
Forum topics will include an update on the status of deer, obtaining and using Deer Management Permits and control options for nuisance and problem wildlife other than deer. Attendees also will receive updated Wildlife Management Manuals created by the Maryland Farm Bureau and DNR.
Animal damage on the farm can take a variety of forms, from deer eating crops to beavers flooding timber. Past surveys show that deer cause the most damage to crops in the state, followed by Canada geese and groundhogs. Many farmers run into millions of dollars in wildlife crop damage per year.
Donuts and coffee will be served. For more information, contact Colby Ferguson email@example.com. RSVP to the Maryland Farm Bureau at 410-922-3426 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
