When livestock is 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 farming also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural 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 contributes to the animals being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock 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 good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often 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 then your conventional foods. Their nutritional 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 raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us humans.
