Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in restricted 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 sunlight 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 great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce saliva 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.
