Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic 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 develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the animals being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the livestock are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
