Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great 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 livestock are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. 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 good for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 and 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 want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
