Importance of livestock in an organic farming system
“An organic farm is a living ecosystem where live stock are integrated into the farm’s operation, playing a vital role in maintaining soil health and promoting biodiversity.”
Truzt Organic and Natural Products we are adopting some live stocks in our Truzt Organic farm to get a better yield and healthy food.
“Organic farming practices ensure that live stock are free to graze on natural pastures, eat non-GMO feed and live in humane conditions. This results in healthier animals and higher-quality products for consumers.”
In organic farming, animals play several important roles, including:
Soil fertility: Animals such as cows, sheep, and chickens can help to improve soil fertility by providing manure that can be used as a natural fertilizer.
Pest control: Birds and bats can help to control pests by eating insects, while chickens can scratch through the soil and eat weeds
Pollination: Bees and other insects are essential for pollinating plants, which is necessary for crop production.
Grazing: Animals such as sheep and cows can be used for grazing, which helps to control the growth of weeds and maintain the health of the pasture.
Biodynamic farming: Animals are also integral to the practice of biodynamic farming, which involves using cows, sheep, and other animals to create a self-sustaining ecosystem.
“Raising live stock on an organic farm is not just about producing meat and dairy products, it’s about creating a sustainable and healthy ecosystem. Organic farms use natural methods to care for their animals, promoting their well-being and protecting the environment.”
