When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious green grass and other 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 more nutritious and taste better then 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 pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that 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 ideal for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a much healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their nutritional levels are greater as well.
It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you wish to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us human beings.
