Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural 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 livestock. This then results in the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
