These facilities do not have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.

Some of the benefits will be the animals are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
