Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to 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 have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals 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.

Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is good for consumers then 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 nutritional levels are greater as well.
It’s no question 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.
