These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the livestock being provided with 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 system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
