Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life compared to 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 do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce saliva 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 harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is ideal for consumers than 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 want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
