Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment plus the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is much 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 compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an all 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 develope and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great 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 livestock are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is good for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their supplement 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 healthy for us humans.
