When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are let to graze freely 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 raising also helps in minimizing damage to the environment and the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is far 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 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 sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then results in the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. 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 ideal 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 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 need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
