Joel Salatin’s Egg Mobile System

The main function of the Egg Mobile System is to improve pastures using the egg mobile following. In this case the chicken system moves into a paddock 3 days after the cattle has been moved away from it. The chickens will then sanitise this paddock eating flies, insects, ticks, parasites, etc. that could otherwise be a problem due to the cattle being managed in high concentration numbers (rotational grazing). While providing this sanitation service the chickens also complement their diet. Another function provided by the chickens is to spread the manure left by the cattle in the paddock.
