When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious grass and other green 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 meat, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is great 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.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is good for consumers than 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 nutritional levels are higher as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us humans.
