When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious grass and other green 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 meat, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal 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 an organic life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a 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 good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Since 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, 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 vitamin 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 humans.
