Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals 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 do not have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
