When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are let 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 green pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment plus the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted 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 livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then causes the animals being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal 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 saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised 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 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 would like to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
