LITTLE ROCK –The Arkansas Agriculture Department’s Livestock and Poultry Commission met last Friday and took the following actions:

  • The commission approved proposed rules that would allow the issuance of permits for the use of aircraft in the eradication of feral hogs. Feral hog airborne eradication permits may only be used for the protection of land, water, wildlife, livestock, domestic animals, timber, human life, or crops.
  • The commission approved proposed rule changes to the Disbursement of State Funds for Fairs and Livestock Shows Program. The rule changes include moving the deadline for submission of application forms from May 30 to March 1, and authorizing a method of allocating surplus construction funds.
