This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

In this Badge Bit you will shift animals over to a new paddock, move their shelter, and check they have water and minerals.

Here are some articles on it.
 - Raising Chickens 2.0
 - Chicken Paddock Shift
 - Stock Grass Farmer Report on Paddock Shifting Pigs
 - Pasture Post Pig Grazing
 - Advanced Cell Grazing
 - Paddock Design and Stockmanship Part 1
 - Paddock Design and Stockmanship Part 2

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - move animals to a new paddock
      - make sure they have good water and minerals
      - move the shelter

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - post a 2 minute video (sped up) of you doing this
      - moving the animals to a new paddock
      - moving the shelter
      - checking their water and minerals
Let's get him boys! We'll make him read this tiny ad!
