Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree 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 causes the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a great deal 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 saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.

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 question 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.
