We adopted Vivien on December 5. When I saw her photo on the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA website, it was love at first sight. Her name then was Pretty Girl, and I was smitten.
She came to Charlottesville through the Best Friends Animal Society from a shelter in Houston established for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

When animals are raised 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 livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is 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. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then results in the animals being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits would be 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 often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised 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 much healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are greater as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you wish to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
