    I am looking into getting my NPIP certification this year. I have goats within close proximity to my one chicken pen. How do you all handle the care of your goats and chickens while maintaining biosecurity?

    I am aware of cryptosporidiosis. Are there other transmittable diseases that I should worry about.

    Is this going to be an issue during my npip certification?
