When livestock is 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 pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimizing damage to the environment and 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 kept in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then causes the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are 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 frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human 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 healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their nutritional 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 human beings.
