These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then contributes to the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
