When animals are raised in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious grass and other green plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is good for consumers than 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 supplement levels are higher as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
