These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then leads to 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 lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be 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 frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
