These facilities don’t have sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then leads to the animals being provided with 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 would be the animals are able to produce saliva which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive tract. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
