Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in confined factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then results in 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 lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
