Straw pack for 50 cows - What do you think?

Straw pack for 50 cows, 4 large crossovers between resting and eating area! Large feeding lane. Well done! (air and fly control are big success factors as well). What do you think?

Joep it's a very good idea. But I wonder they haven't made beds for the rest of cows. We generally have similar arrangements less the straws. The difference is that we spread a layer of sand for rest of cows.
The sand dries up soon as the urine of cows goes down immediately.
In such case do we still need sand beds for cows?

A free moving compost or sand yard is excellent! Beds can be a bit cleaner and less work
