U.S. Economic Outlook – A New Year and a New Administration: The Trump presidency promises to be a dramatic shift away from the policies of the past eight years. At this point, there is still a great deal of uncertainty about the actual policies that will be implemented and their potential effects on the US and global economies. While some of the new administration’s proposals should be positive for the US economy, risk and uncertainty has definitely increased given the sharp rhetoric of the campaign and transition period. In this webinar on Wednesday, February 22, David Fortin, RISI Senior Economist, will discuss the current state of the US economy, as well as a near-term outlook given the potential changes.

When livestock is raised 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 reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree 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 leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole 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 drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage 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 more healthy balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their nutritional levels are greater as well.
It’s no uncertainty that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
