These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then causes the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.

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. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
