When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are let to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other 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 reducing damage to the environment and the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is ideal for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are greater as well.
It’s no uncertainty 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 healthy for us humans.
