Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture.

These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock 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 good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
