Michigan Farm Bureau backs DNR?s ban on feral swine

LANSING– Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, is happy to report the Michigan Farm Bureau voted to support the Department of Natural Resources ban on feral swine at their annual meeting.

In July of this year, legislation was proposed to regulate the sporting swine industry, but the measure was never voted on.  In the absence of laws regulating the industry, the ban was imposed by the DNR.

“I am thrilled Michigan Farm Bureau members voted to support the DNR ban on this dangerous and invasive species,” said Jones.
