When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in lowering damage to the environment plus the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted 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 livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then contributes to the animals being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised 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 more healthy balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats than 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 wish to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us humans.
