Raising Organic Chickens
We live in an age where the demand to grow and raised foods such as fruits, vegetables, and livestock in a more healthy way will not have any adverse effect on consumers. Too often we hear reports of individuals becoming ill because of the foods they consume.
I have heard, watch and read horror stories if I can use that term of persons raising livestock injecting them so they can be market size in a matter of weeks and while this may get them the profits they projected, it comes at the cost of many having to pay the price.
Choosing an organic lifestyle are great because though you may have to dig deeper it is worth it than having to spend more at the doctor’s office. In this article, we will be looking at the process in which animals as raised organically.
Organically raised animals
Organically raised animals are animals that are grown and raised without the use of harmful chemicals, growth hormones, drugs, pesticides, and antibiotics. Another feature of raising organic farm animals is the animals are not confined to conditions that are unfavorable but rather have the freedom to move about in open fields and pastures.
Also organically raised animals are not prone to disease nor are they stressed compared to animals which are confined making them more healthier and of better quality.
The crop or feed of organically raised animals is grown in such a way that the crop itself is grown without the use of chemicals and pesticides.
Factory farm animals
When it comes to factory-farmed animals it is quite the opposite, these animals are raised in harsh conditions, being confined in crowded areas, having to live in their own waste, stressed, sickly, facing injuries
being feed and injected with chemicals, drugs, growth hormones, and antibiotics. Often times being transported around in bad weather impairs their health.
Is it a wonder why people fall into many illnesses because of consuming these meats?
The United States Department Of Agriculture requires that certain standards must be met to operate an organic farm.
1. Organic farms must operate in ways to ensure and protect the health of the environment.
2. Ensure the safety and well-being of humans, animals, plants, and soil.
3. Promoting and helping to sustain the ecological system.
An organic slaughterhouse is kept in such a way where only organically grown animals are killed. The slaughterhouses are well kept and free of contamination.
The final word
There is more which can be said on this topic, also there are many arguments about organically raised animals but even though persons differ when it comes to this we can all agree that going organic is the better way.
