Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
