Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture.

These facilities do not have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
