Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal 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 secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
