When livestock is raised 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 farming also helps in lowering damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is far 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. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities 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 contributes to 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 number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. 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 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 higher as well.
It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
