When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze freely and eat nutritious green grass and other 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 and the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept 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 facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then contributes to the livestock 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 would be the animals are able to produce drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human 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 much healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are higher as well.
It’s no uncertainty that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us humans.
