Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then contributes to the animals being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the livestock are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
