Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on 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 sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then causes the animals being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the livestock are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
