Livestock that are raised in limited 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 facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then causes the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a lot 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. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
