These facilities do not have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.

Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
