Pasture containing grasses, wildflowers and herbs is the natural diet of cattle and sheep. Yet today, very few animals are fed on pasture alone. Many farmers now try to produce their meat as quickly as possible, by feeding things like cereals and imported soya, and keeping them indoors for some, or all of the time. So animals are vanishing from our fields and the tasty, healthy food they produce from grazing grass is hard to find.
The Pasture-Fed Livestock Association brings together British farmers committed to producing high quality food in a more natural way.
