Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the livestock are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
