You didn't say if this is a barn for livestock or a shed for equipment, it makes a difference. I like rebar. especially around the perimeter, and a lot depends on the base.

A girlfriend of my wife has been an Iron Worker, (rod buster) for 30-years. She was telling me one time she placed the rods for a slab on 12-inch centers. She said when the slab dried it cracked at every bar! Makes you wonder what the coverage was. Most places require 3-inches, but in some slabs that can be hard to do. A lot of home owners make the mistake of placing the bar right on the ground, or standing on it while making the pour. Need to use lots of dobies if you plan on standing on top of the bar.

That sounds to me like the concrete was poured way to wet! Some people like to soup it up so its self leveling, and it makes for very weak concrete, and a lot of shrinkage. Also maybe the rebar was too close to the surface, or it was not floated enough.
