Sustainable livestock raising also helps in lowering damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, 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. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then contributes to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
