If your cows aren’t using their free-stalls as you intend, perhaps the design doesn’t meet their comfort criteria. According to Ken Nordlund, University of Wisconsin veterinarian, you may need to redesign your stalls, such as:
Improving surface cushion.
Enlarging stalls for big cows.
Removing lunge-and-bob obstructions, such as high brisket boards.
Moving neck rails forward.
