When livestock is kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other green plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment plus the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot 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 tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is ideal for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are higher as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us human beings.
