These facilities do not have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then leads to the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce secretion which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
