When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in lowering damage to the environment and the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to the animals being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce secretion which is great 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 farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is ideal for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their nutritional levels are greater as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
