Livestock that are kept in confined 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 sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
