Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life than 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 have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
