STEENBARGER-pens

Summer Steenbarger prefers the classic Salatin model of self-contained mobile pens, rotated over pasture in concert with beef cattle. She has replaced the lighter tarp shown here with much heavier, more durable industrial fabric. In winter, she houses her layer flocks in the shelters, parked on garden beds, to give the soil a big boost in fertility. (Photo courtesy of Summer Steenbarger)
