When livestock is raised in the pasture-based system they are let 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 green pasture.
Sustainable livestock farming also helps in minimising damage to the environment plus the produces such as meat, eggs and milk is much more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on green pasture can move around and live an all natural 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 grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is ideal for consumers then livestock raised on grains. Adding to that, pasture raised foods have a healthier balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats then your conventional foods. Their supplement levels are greater as well.
It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you wish to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us humans.
