When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are let to graze openly and eat nutritious green grass and other green plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment plus the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed 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 than 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 wish to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
