When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious green grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in minimizing damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised 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 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 livestock being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot 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 digestive system. 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 then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a much healthier balance of omega-3 plus 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 want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us human beings.
