Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept 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 facilities the animals 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 animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot 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 drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
