Rats and Other Vermin Control on the Farm


Tuesday, February 23, 2021
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

While viewing wildlife in their natural habitat can be fun, when wildlife invade livestock facilities and grain storage, they can cause major losses. Rats, mice, and other rodents can infest grain and livestock feed and make it un-sellable and un-usable as feed. Wildlife such as racoons, fox, and weasels can invade poultry houses and kill and maim birds. Pastured animals are subject to predation by a number of wildlife species.

Learning how to reduce wildlife losses on the farm to feed, grain, and livestock mortalities with recommended practices will help improve farm profitability.
