Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment plus the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to the animals being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals 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 great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is good for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are greater as well.
It’s no uncertainty 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 humans.
