I love the Flinthills in the fall. The colors of the mature grasses, combined with the golden sun of early morning or late afternoon are truly spectacular. Kansas is often thought of as flat and treeless, but in eastern Kansas, the hills are rolling and grass-covered and cattle still dot the countryside as we get closer and closer to winter.

When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are let to graze freely and eat nutritious 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 minimizing damage to the environment plus the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then causes the livestock 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 are 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 often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, 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 supplement 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 reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
