Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to 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 are the livestock are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
