When animals are 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 green pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then results in the animals being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is good for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a more healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their nutritional levels are higher as well.
It’s no uncertainty 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 good for us humans.
