Length of the beds
Check the cows in these cubicles. They're lying in diagonals and their backs are hitting the metal. These cubicles are 1,70m, but cows are 2 meter. Go for longer beds.
Deep soft sand or chopped straw and lime and water is the new standard. In the Netherlands we converted 33 % of the matress barns into DEEP BEDS, with great effect on milk yield and longevity. A lot less lameness and wounds!
