Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
