Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree 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 grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the livestock are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is good 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 supplement levels are higher as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
