Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
