It is well known that multi-species farms are per se of great danger to perpetuate the presence of microorganisms such as Campylobacter and Salmonella. Especially when there are animals vaccinated against Samonella and subjected to a rigorous control plan and other species with which they coexist and are a source of infection are not.

Therefore, if this happens, it is important to manage the different species as separate farms and apply all biosecurity measures to each of them.

However, it will be challenging to avoid dissemination through animate vectors, so you will have to be very strict in this respect.
