Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits.
