Sustainable livestock raising also helps in lowering 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 confined 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 farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight 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 lot 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 gastrointestinal system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is good 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 supplement levels are higher as well.
It’s no uncertainty 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 healthy for us humans.
