Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then results in the animals being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally 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 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 would like to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us human beings.
