Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being provided with 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 would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
