Authorities cited 45-year-old Christopher Vaccaro in February after they said they found nearly 200 sick and malnourished goats, horses, chickens and peacocks on the farm in Millstone.

Only goats and a few chickens remain after the other animals were adopted.

Vaccaro pleaded guilty on Tuesday.

Chief humane law enforcement officer Victor “Buddy” Amato of the Monmouth County SPCA tells the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1iYZUjI ) the remaining goats need to be neutered in order for Vaccaro to manage the herd.

Vaccaro was fined $2,000. He’ll have to pay $500 with the rest suspended.
