When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other 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 pork, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals 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. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is good for consumers than 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 supplement levels are greater as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
