When animals are kept in the pasture-based system they are let to graze freely and eat nutritious grass and other green plants that are easily digested by their bodies. The animals 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 pork, eggs and milk is far 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. Animals 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 develop and affect the livestock. This then contributes 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 will be the livestock are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
Human Being Health Benefits:
Livestock raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs, beef, milk which is good for consumers than 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 higher 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.
