When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly 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 green pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in reducing damage to the environment and 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 kept in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage 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 than your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are higher as well.
It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
