These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a great deal of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
