Why pasture-fed is so important
Pasture is better for animals
Compelling scientific research shows animals fed on pasture are less stressed, live longer and are more fertile than those farmed intensively.
Produces higher quality meat and milk
Food from animals that are grass-fed is healthier for humans to eat than meat produced from grain-fed cattle and sheep.
Good for the environment
Pasture for Life farms often have a positive carbon footprint – putting goodness back into soils rather than depleting them. They also support more wildlife.
Uses local resources
Grass is the UK’s national crop but is often under-utilised. There is great potential to produce more food from Britain’s grassland, reducing the need to import feeds from abroad.
