Fattening sheep and livestock read for slaughter

Grass finishing - Grass finishing is the term thats used for fattening sheep/livestock up prior to their slaughter. this means they mostly just graze on the fields.  

Grain finishing - Grain finishing is the term thats used for fattening up sheep and livestock prior to their slaughter. This means that theyre given more grain as well as their hay. the grain helps to increase their fat.

My experience when keeping my lambs, which i wanted to fatten up during the summer, proved that giving too much of the grain can lead to bloat if not contolled.
