Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then leads to the animals being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits.

Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
