Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than 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 animals. This then leads to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a 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 secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
