Roch Hart and his company, Wildlife Protection Management, received assistance from New Mexico State University’s Arrowhead Center AgSprint program to develop an innovative, scalable and humane feeding station for wild horses that is equipped with the capability for remote injection of contraceptives.

Feeding stations developed for humane wild horse control

Technology used to humanely control wild horse populations can also be adapted to feral dogs, feral pigs, deer and other wild animals.

As a retired police officer, former plant manager, tour guide operator and photographer, Roch Hart maintains that he became a rancher almost by accident. It is through this position that he used entrepreneurial thinking to to identify a problem at his private, 20,000-acre ranch in New Mexico and develop a solution for a costly situation, according to an announcement from New Mexico State University.
