When livestock is kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious green grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment plus the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot 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. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is good for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a more healthy balance of omega-3 plus 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 raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
