Sustainable livestock farming also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is far 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. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As 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, meat, milk which is ideal for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a more healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are greater as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you would like to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
