Livestock 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 a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then causes the animals being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, meat, milk which is good for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a much healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are greater as well.
It’s no doubt 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 human beings.
