Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then contributes to the animals being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
