Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then contributes to the animals being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is ideal for consumers than livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are greater as well.
It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
