Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then causes the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole 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 drool 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 damage and even death.
