Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock 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 don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the animals being provided with 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 livestock 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 harm and even death.
