Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory facilities the livestock 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 results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is good for consumers than livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats than 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 good for us humans.
