When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other green plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural 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 develope and affect the livestock. This then results in the animals being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is ideal for consumers than livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a much healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are higher as well.
It’s no doubt 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.
