Do you follow the biosecurity guidelines for your property? Why or why not?

We do to a point. Mostly since I've gotten into more breeding stock with the poultry and we invested a lot of $$ in dairy sheep.
If someone is from a farm or has been visiting a different farm within the previous 2 weeks, they have to wear plastic boots and are not allowed IN the pens.
We are more lax with non-farm visitors.

All incoming animals are quarantined and we do not wear our farm boots/clothing off the property.

DH and I - totally winging life with our four children, DS1 (6.5yrs), DS2 (5yrs), DD (3yrs) and DS3 (1)!
