Sustainable livestock farming also helps in lowering damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have 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 great for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals 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 good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is ideal for consumers than 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 higher as well.
It’s no doubt 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 healthy for us humans.
