Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
