Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then causes 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 lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
