Sustainable livestock raising also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock 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 farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then contributes to the livestock being provided with 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 animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. 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, beef, milk which is good for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their nutritional levels are higher as well.
It’s no uncertainty that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you wish to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
