Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
