Livestock 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 a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole 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 drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
