lying box/cubicle


Explanation:
Cubicles are part of a so-called lying box or cubicle shed, also called a loose housing. The cows are fed at a location remote from the lying boxes or cubicles, and after feeding can walk through walking and dung channels to a lying box or cubicle where they can lie down for ruminating.
