These facilities have no sunlight or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the animals are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
