Beef Barn (How to design)

500 by 150 Cattle barn with a center feed alley, and curtains on both sides of the barn.

I'm wondering if anyone on here has any experience with cattle barns. Thinking about a bedded pack, Should I slope the bed pack floor towards the scraper alley just behind the feed bunk or should it be a flat concrete slab? Any and all ideas would be very welcome. Thank-you.

we are currently building a 50x400 bed pack and we slopped the bed pack to scrape alley

Hello **** Thanks for the reply. Do you know the amount of slope that you used and did you see this method being used somewhere ?
