    Free range livestock and domestic poultry are those permitted to graze or forage rather than being confined to a feedlot.

    It is a method of farming where the animals are allowed to roam free and not be contained in any way. Like a stall or particular small living space. “Farmers practice free range to achieve free-range or humane certification (and thus capture high prices), to reduce feed costs, to improve the happiness and liveliness of their animals, to produce a higher-quality product, and as a method of raising multiple crops on the same land.” Free range may apply to meat, eggs or dairy farming. Free range can also refer to the ability of some ranchers who own enough land to not even fence their livestock.
