These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then contributes to the livestock being given antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number 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. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
