Sustainable livestock raising also helps in minimizing damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on 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 have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a great deal 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. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is ideal for consumers than 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 want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us humans.
