Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then results in 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 livestock are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
