When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment and the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage 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 more healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are greater 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 raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us human beings.
