Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sun light 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 great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good 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.
