When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are let to graze openly and eat nutritious green grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in lowering damage to the environment plus the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept 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 livestock 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 contributes to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a 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 drool 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 harm and even death.
Human Being 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 much healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are greater as well.
It’s no question 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 healthy for us humans.
