Managed Intensive Grazing (MIG) setup for pigs and chickens. Central pig sty is fixed, providing eight gates for allowing hogs into various pasture areas. Fixed cross fencing provides four paddocks, 100 feet on a side each. Design allows ten pigs 5000 sq. ft. (half a paddock) of grazing for two weeks, completing one lap around the yard in sixteen weeks. 100 chickens rotate around a paddock, 2500 square feet per week, four weeks in one paddock, then rotate into area pigs vacate. Management of paddock rotation is such that chickens enter a space where pigs haven't been for two weeks, allowing parasites to die and forage to re-grow.
