Collect the manure on daily bases and store somewhere outside of the shed.
You can also make an outlet to shed so that whenever the shed is cleaned the cow urine any leftover manure can flow into the field.
This can provides good drainage for cattle urine and excrete.
Shed should be cleaned daily to maintain the hygienic conditions.
