Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
