Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory farms the animals 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 results in the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the livestock are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
