Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
