Re: Pigs - Are they worth having?

I did some detailed analysis on this some months ago. The raw data showed that cows are the most profitable animal - however it did not take into account great demands on wool (and there isn't one for milk), so it's very possible that sheep are just as good if you wait for GDs and get good prices. F...

Re: whats better

Hey mate. I didn't do exhaustive testing, but I do know I have avoided selling at my placeable heating plant for a few days. I was doing a lot of field expansion, and created around 8 big 40k tippers of chips. I alternated a little bit, taking every third or so to the sawmill. I found that I crushed...

Re: Is doing a silage operation worth it?

Thanks for that @TopSoil! I was able to edit the price to make it not go down and make it like FS15. :chinese: Hey JD - what attribute is it exactly that you change to prevent selling volume to impact price? I never bothered to figure that out, always assumed it had to do with that list of fruits a...

Re: Is doing a silage operation worth it?

I've started doing corn silage a couple weeks ago. The forage harvester is not cheap! The next problem is if you do too much, you wreck the price of silage at the BGA. However, I think I'm in a decent rhythm with it now. Can do 300k or so silage just about every game day without completely ruining t...

Re: Where do the animals go to

Well when a mommy pig and daddy pig get to drinking one night some oinking and squealing later mommy pig is disappointed and daddy pig is passed out. Short time later a fleet of storks arrive with lil piglets. Then after the farmer gets them good and fat he sends them off to the farm in the sky. Th...

Re: Forestry

To the economics degree graduate in me, it's actually rather sensible and halfway expected. If 4 and 5 meter length logs are easiest to handle, I could assume that they become more commonly produced. Thus, 8 meter lengths more rare. Rarity is often an upward influence on price. Further, some structu...

Re: Sleep?????

I speed up time usually also, I find I can barely function after 11pm, especially if clouds are out. That said, a couple days ago the nighttime was a clear sky, and the moonlight was enough to do a whole harvest cycle on 4 fields the way I'm farming these days. The hired worker runs the harvester ju...

Re: Is it slurry or not?

If you look closer, you'll notice the icons are different. Slurry shows a little picture of a slurry trailer - digestate shows a solid circle with a blank cut out of it in the same shape as the slurry trailer icon.

Re: Forestry

I am starting out with forestry. Really just clearing fields for grass mowing. I did a field with the ScorpionKing and the big green chipper. I still havent finished moving all the chip piles. Then I tried cutting down a tree by hand and loading it with a loader, MAN that is soo much faster! But I ...
