These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the animals. This then results in the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not good for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits.

Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
