Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited 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 farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then contributes to the livestock 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 will be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.

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.
