Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture.

These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then results in 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 would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
