Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.

It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you would like to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us humans.
