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 livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then leads to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a lot 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. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
