Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock 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 don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole 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 digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
