Pass a law requiring cattle allowed to graze grass outside min. 8 hours per day

Many dairy cattle are kept in sheds for up to 24 hours a day, in some cases all year. They're fed diets which aren't healthy or natural for them. As a result of this, over-milking and preventing movement they typically become ill and are killed at 3 to 5 years old. Their natural lifespan is 20 years
