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 animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in minimizing damage to the environment plus the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is 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 do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number 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 frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage 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 healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are higher as well.
It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you want to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is good for us humans.
