Looking to build a new pen. I need enough room for 50 momas plus calves at times. Any threads out there or ideas anyone has would be appreciated!

I built a set last fall and ended up using a set of plans off of Prieferts website. Nothing fancy but it works better than expected. Pretty much has a single alley down the middle that leads to a tub and has the pens on each side of the ally. One side has 3 bigger pens for cows and other side has 2 smaller pens for calves. I did add a trap to catch them in before the corrals. It's probably 80x100 pipe uprights and top rail wrapped in stay tuff. Some of the set ups I've been in have so many gates, pens, and allys I get confused trying to sort. Think I have maybe 8 gates total.

I looked it up again. I based it off of Prieferts Rough Stock 200 hd design. I did size it down some but built so I can add on fairly easy. I left off the big trap around the chute too.
