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 great deal of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits.

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