When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in lowering damage to the environment and the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then causes the animals being given 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 are the livestock are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is ideal for consumers than livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a more healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are greater 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.
