Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then causes 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 will be the animals are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
