Q&A HogStop Oral Contraceptive Bait
What is HogStop and How do I use it?
HogStop is a mixture of ingredients, commonly found in some livestock feeds, that is fed to feral hogs to reduce their numbers on your farm or ranch. It acts as a male contraception on feral boar hogs. Sperm counts in feral boar hogs are reduced and hence fertility. Births of baby pigs are decreased and feral hog populations decrease over time. HogStop is not a poison that will kill the hogs. It should be fed in hog-specific feeders that are designed to keep out all other species.
