These facilities do not have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then leads to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce secretion which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
