When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are let to graze openly and eat nutritious grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in lowering damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree 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 have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then results in the animals being given 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 good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since 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 healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their nutritional levels are greater as well.
It’s no uncertainty 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.
