Sustainable livestock farming also helps in reducing 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.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms 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 results in the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good 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 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 harm and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is ideal for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a more healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are greater as well.
It’s no uncertainty 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 healthy for us humans.
