Farmers, forestry workers and Murray Local Lands Service will take aim at foxes north of Moama, starting this week.
Murray Local Lands Service biosecurity officer Scott Watkins said more than 13,000 baits will be laid throughout the region, to try to reduce fox numbers.
Mr Watkins said while authorities tended to rely on anecdotal information, he believed fox numbers were on par with recent years.
