These facilities have no sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.

Some of the benefits would be the animals are able to produce drool which is great for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
