When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are allowed to graze openly and eat nutritious green grass and other plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The livestock welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment plus the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life than 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 don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best 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 livestock are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock farmed on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, 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 than your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are greater as well.
It’s no question that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you would like to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
