Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.

Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce drool which is great 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.
