Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory facilities the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then results in the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
