Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals 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 good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the livestock are able to produce drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
