Im not sure what is the fastest way to get slurry from the animals
Keep your cows and pigs at 100% productivity, and you'll get slurry as fast as possible. The more animals you have, the more slurry you get.

Re: Oilseed Radish

Things do have to be done in a specific order, which in most cases makes sense. But I do think that planting a cover crop, then seeding with a fertilizing seeder, should give you two fert steps. Using a fertilizing cultivator, then a fertilizing seeder should also give you two steps, but currently d...

I find them easier since the update with the new lift attachment
New lift attachment for a tractor, or for a telehander? I found that the bale tines were MUCH easier to use with the telehandler, because the bags just fell off the included tool all the time :).

Re: A simulator? No, just a game.

The point isn't realism, the point is the ILLUSION of realism. Enough real elements to sell you on the world, then enough game elements to keep it fun. If this was a true simulator, it would sell maybe a few thousand copies, rather than the one million or more sold so far, and we'd never get another...

Re: Lime storage

And I can't imagine that is the way farmers do it in real life. Don't know much about RL-farming. But I can't imagine, that they fill up the spreader by Standing next to a palet and magically transfering the lime, or seed to the spreader... You don't have to do that in FS either! Or, actually, with...

Re: Crop destruction on harvested cotton / needs lime

Same here, after harvesting cotton, the wheel tracks in the field are brown (which I think means they're in a withered state?) and wont' accept lime.

I thought it was cultivating or discing that was required after sunflowers and corn. Not a using a plough.... that is a lot of pain and suffering.
You can use a subsoiler, they're generally a little faster and wider than ploughs for the same HP requirement.

If you have periodic ploughing enabled in options then you might need to plough after any crop.
No, it's after corn, sunflower and root crops, specifically. You need to plough everytime you've harvested one of those, never otherwise.

Re: WEEDS WEEDS AND MORE WEEDS

Weeds patern is buggy. Weeds starts growing from top to bottom, but if your neighbor has weeds in his field, you will see weeds in your field too no matter if you used plow and herbicide. I don't. WIth growth on Normal, I only see weeds grow once per harvest. And once I remove them, they don't come...

I find I hate about 1/2 the tractors sounds in general regardless of distance.
It's odd that there's such a difference... The Masseys sound good in general, but many tractors have a strangely whiny engine note, like the big Deeres and a few others.

Re: Ever been addicted to a certain crop?(no drugs allowed)

I've always liked corn. It's not the most efficient crop, but it just looks so good, and feels so good to harvest. Maybe it's the color? But for money I tend to rotate canola and beans, with the occasional crop of oats for horse food and straw. In FS19, I might have to do some cotton once I can affo...

I actually prefer it this way, feels more immersive if the sounds is lower when we're further away.

Re: Gotta question about cows...

In terms of bales TMR takes 2 Straw 1 Hay 1 Silage for a perfect mix. I don't think that will make TMR. Straw can't be more than 33%, so you can either use two hay, one silage and one straw, OR two silage, one hay and one straw. But the easiest (though more expensive) way is to simply use two silag...

A chicken trailer would be nice, but we really, really need a horse trailer. Transporting them two at a time doesn't really cut it.
