When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are let to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other green plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in lowering damage to the environment plus the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Animal 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 an organic life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then contributes to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will 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 often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed 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 reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us human beings.
