Who likes the thought of eating chemicals? That’s right, absolutely no one! So why do we allow the industry to infuse animal products with chemicals?
How do chemicals make their way into animal products?
Let’s look at the meat industry.
Industrial mass-produced meat is more often than not livestock fed on secondary crops like corn and soy, as opposed to regenerative pasture grazing. These crops are mass produced by pumping them full of fertilizers and pesticides.
This is required because pastures are abused and overgrazed until they cannot support the head of stock a farmer requires to make a profit. The only way to keep stock alive is to supplement their diet with chemical-laden feed.
The result is we all get a nice dose of chemicals in the meat we buy. We all know this, it’s just easier to forget about it, right?
How can we prevent this?
A surprising way to combat this is to encourage regenerative pasture raising. Also called mob grazing, this technique involves rotating livestock between smaller blocks of pasture. It maintains pasture levels, retains topsoil, encourages greater and sustainable pasture production all while improving the health of the land. This way, the stock can be fed without the use of secondary feed which has been pumped with fertilizers and pesticides.
What’s the result?
The meat that enters supermarkets would no longer contain chemicals originating in fertilizers and pesticides, and would no longer enter your body.
Topsoil would be retained and environmental health managed. This would result in the replacement of fertilizers and pesticides with natural processes associated with a healthy ecosystem.
It’s a win-win situation for all the following:
- Farmers, who don’t need to buy as much feed
- Livestock, who live healthier and thus happier lives
- The environment, which is less impacted
- Humans, who get healthier animal products
Join us for animal-friendly, environmentally responsible, economically sound, and deliciously healthy meat.
