When animals are 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 animals welfare is greatly increased when they graze on green pasture.
Sustainable livestock raising also helps in minimising damage to the environment and the produces such as beef, eggs and milk is more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the animals 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 best for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently 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 more healthy balance of omega-3 plus omega-6 fats than your conventional foods. Their vitamin levels are greater as well.
It’s no uncertainty 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 healthy for us human beings.
