Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing 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 raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.

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 raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us human beings.
