Sheep hurdle floor fixings

I’m looking for suggestions on floor fixings to hold sheep hurdles/race joiners to the shed floor. I’m looking for alternatives to just a rawl bolts/thunderbolts as I want to beable to take the handling system to bits and clean out with the loader or use the shed for other uses at different times of year so they need to fit flush with the floor. Do I bite the bullet and just concrete in 50mm sockets? Has anyone done anything different?

Doesn't take a lot to hold. We had temp pens with just 20mm round bar on bottom of 40mm box post dropped into 22mm holes in the concrete. As long as it's not too long and straight a run it would be fine. Big masonry drill soon drills a dozen holes to try.
