On November 21, it was announced that the Flint River Soil and Water Conservation District was awarded $1.5 million for a three year project in the Feral Swine Eradication and Control Pilot Program in the Albany project area. The Albany project area includes parts of Calhoun, Baker, Terrell, and Dougherty Counties. Drs. Hemant Naikare and Yung-Yi C. Mosley of the CVM’s Tifton Diagnostic and Investigational Laboratory are collaborators in the project.
Their role in the project is to conduct microbial source tracking on water samples to determine if feral swine are the source of fecal coliform. Read the complete story from Flint River Soil and Water Conservation District.
