Friends with benefits
This season we are experimenting with not only rotational, but ‘conjoint’ rotational grazing. With the sheep in the same paddock as chickens, in addition to expanding the biodiversity in the farm, and the benefits for the soil humus buildup, we also found a surprise benefit: having the sheep roam around encourages chickens to lay all their eggs in the proper laying boxes. Less hidden eggs amongst tall grass. All credits to Prue. #symbiosis #friends #friendsinhighplaces #eggs #pastured #pasturedeggs #farming #soil #biodiversity
