Animals that graze on pastureland eat a diverse and natural diet. They grow healthier and stronger than animals raised in conventional feedlots. Meat and dairy products from these pasture-fed animals are more nutritious than factory-farmed foods. On small farms, animals such as goats, sheep and cows eat weeds and supply a natural fertilizer. Huge livestock feedlots put out large emissions of methane gas, but grazing animals on rangeland reduces that substantially.
