When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are let to graze freely and eat nutritious green grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment and 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 kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree 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 sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is good for consumers than livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a more healthy balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are greater as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you would like to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
