Farmers and ranchers are constantly adopting new ways of raising animals that keep animal well-being the top priority. Today’s methods of caring for livestock have been designed with the health and well-being of both animals and humans in mind. Simply put, healthy and content animals are the goal for farmers and ranchers, and many of the technological advancements ensure just that.
For example, housing for animals is designed to meet their specific needs through well ventilated, temperature controlled, clean environments with ready access to nutritious foods and fresh water. When animals do get sick, they are placed in separate housing and promptly treated through professional veterinary care. Housing design also makes giving birth less stressful and helps to protect young animals. These are only a few of many examples of steps farmers take daily to ensure they are doing right by the animals, land and environment.
