The LSU AgCenter says feral hogs cause an estimated $91 million in damage to agriculture and timberlands in Louisiana every year.

A new study reveals that feral hogs cost landowners more than $66 million in crop losses a year, along with nearly $25 million in other expenses.

The study was based on nearly a thousand responses to a 2021 survey, representing almost 660,000 acres of farms, pastures, and woods.

About nine million feral hogs are spread across at least 34 states, and are found in all 64 of Louisiana's parishes.
