Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
