Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture.

These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great 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 drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
