I have been considering trying to get N.P.I.P. certified. I was wondering how much of a pain is it? Is it a really big ordeal, or somthing reasonable? I talked to them at the State fair and they said the first year they test all your breeders, and after that they do not have to test ducks and geese every year. They made it sound like no big deal, but is that true. It sounds like if you have a really large operation it is easier because they only test a percentage of the birds. In the certified breeders of missouri directory their was severall people that only had one or two breeds. They sounded like a very small operation. And they were N.P.I.P. certified. Thanks.
