When livestock is raised 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 pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment and the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is 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. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals 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 great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, 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 plus omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their nutritional levels are greater 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 raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
