We have a few new faces here at Breezy Hill Farm, and we couldn’t be happier about it. The babies and the mamas all are healthy and doing fine. Also they are cute.
First up we have Kronos.
We named him after the Greek god of time because he ignored the calendar and arrived a whopping SEVENTEEN DAYS LATE. Maybe he was just waiting for Mother’s Day, because it seemed appropriate. He was born to our beautiful Rhapsody, who no doubt was thrilled when he finally arrived!…

When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are let to graze freely and eat nutritious green 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 pork, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better than 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 organic life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals 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 good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage 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 much 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 need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
