There are many benefits to moving our chickens and turkeys to fresh pasture every day but one of the most important is SOIL HEALTH! By allowing our chickens and turkeys to scratch around and leave their waste behind, it leaves a nice layer of natural fertilizer and adds organic matter backing to the soil. If we kept them in one spot too long, they would “burn” the ground with too much nitrogen. As farmers, it is one of our most important duties to leave the soil and environment better every day!
