Sustainable livestock farming also helps in lowering damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then contributes to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals 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 tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised 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 healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are higher 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 human beings.
