When livestock is kept in the pasture-based system they are let to graze openly and eat nutritious green 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 raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised 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 a natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the animals being given antibiotics which is not good 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 secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. 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 healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are higher as well.
It’s no uncertainty that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you wish to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
