Sustainable livestock raising also helps in lowering 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.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.

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 humans.
