When livestock is kept 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 animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in minimising damage to the environment plus the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better than food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on green pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the livestock are able to produce drool 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 Health Benefits:
Livestock raised 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 plus 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 would like to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are reared in a healthy way and the produce is healthy for us human beings.
