When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment plus the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised 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 organic life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then results in the animals being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number 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. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often 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 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are greater as well.
It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you would like to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
