Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited 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 animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then causes the animals being given antibiotics which is not great 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 livestock are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is ideal for consumers then 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 vitamin 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 raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
