Hello & thank you for contacting OSU Extension with your question regarding NPIP Certification.

You can contact the Ohio Poultry Association via their website @ http://www.ohpoultry.org/NPIP/index.cfm where they have all of the information on the National Poultry Improvement Plan, including a link to Ohio's NPIP form. Additionally, there are links that you can click to find for more information on proper bird handling, best management practices, testing your flock, or to request more information on pullorum testers or classes near you.

If you would like to contact Ann Chanon, your Agriculture & Natural Resources Extension Educator in Lorain Co., you can do so by calling her at 440-326-5851. The office is open Mon. - Fri., 8:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m., Closed Noon-1:00 p.m. daily.
