When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly 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 lowering damage to the environment plus the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on 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 don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot 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 secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being 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 much healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are higher 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 reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
