Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
