In general, animals raised for food are done so by the thousands under a single roof with no space to move around as they would like to. Since they are packed in such close confinement, if one of them gets sick it rapidly spreads sometimes causing excruciating pain, and that powerful antibiotics given to them makes it even worse for their health. Filthy conditions, overcrowding and stress all ensure that factory farms remain bug infested.
Pigs housed on factory farms are susceptible to a number of different diseases which can spread rapidly within and between herds. Highly infectious exotic diseases, such as foot and mouth disease, Classical Swine Fever (CSF) and African Swine Fever, are controlled in many countries by national eradication programmes, in which all pigs in any herd where the disease is detected are killed and their carcasses buried or burnt to prevent disease-spread.
Other, less serious diseases exist endemically within herds where their effects on health and welfare can be minimised. Many of these diseases, such as Enzootic Pneumonia (EP), Porcine Respiratory and Reproductive Syndrome (PRRS), erysipelas, Escherichia coli, and Post-Weaning Multisystemic Wasting Syndrome (PMWS), are controlled by routine vaccines.
Organic or not, once animals contract diseases that are too expensive to be treated, they go through mass eradication (aka animal holocaust) if you may say so. It's easy not to take part in this massacre - Just don't pay for it. Eat plants which is what they eat to get their nutrition. That way you don't have to filter your nutrients through someone else's dead body.
