Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to 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 lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the livestock 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 damage and even death.

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 raised in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us humans.
