These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then results in the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the livestock 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 frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
