Close Proximity Duck System

Nicholas Burtner visits Jack Spirko, owner of The Survival Podcast, at his Nine Mile Farm where just a few years ago was a rocky barren dried up landscape. Jack integrated a paddock shifting system and in just a short amount of time – everything has greened up. It is simple and anyone can do it.

This video is a really good example of how a little bit of planning can go a long way in setting up a successful system. Jack discus’s a few of the challenges he had, namely the ducks muddying up their water at night, and how that was resolved.

Both Jack and Nicholas have some very helpful and practical advise so we do encourage those into hands on systems to drop by and check them out.

Just as an example, Jack is in series two of his Duck Chronicles.
