Livestock that are raised in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole lot 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 digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
