incredible I think that when I come out farming Simulator 19 I will not play any other game
Agreed! I just bought the below gear in advance of this game to enjoy it that much more! So stoked for all the changes!

It seems to me, that there is a faction on here who are not so happy about the changes made to FS19, I guess they would also be the first to complain if FS19 was just FS17 with new buildings and equipment, you might as well just keep FS17 and download some mods.

For me, FS19 is sounding like a massive improvement, I hope there is some more detailed animal husbandry, maybe different breeds, so you can choose which to buy, and maybe try to crossbreed cattle yourself. Maybe an idea for a future upgrade if not in FS19.

I say make it as realistic as possible, change what you want, FS17 is one of the best games I have ever played, so FS19 can only be better!!!

Thank you everyone at Giants for all your hard work!!
I agree.

On the animal parts, I would love to see it is more work with the animals, different breeds, more realistic look at them, that calves/lambs takes time before they are "grown".
I would also like to see that sheep are more fun to do, more use of them! its comic that all you can do is give them hay and water, then you get wool thats worth a hilarious amount of money (so not real)
I Hope for FS19 or atleast FS21, (if I still play this game) That sheep require straw for bedding and you get at least manure for it/ maybe slurry to.

Kinda hope you guys also make the texture more real on haybales, silage, manure etch. it sure dosn't look right as it it in fs17..

Slurry no but, manure yes. When I was at Agricultral college back in 1989 I did a work placement on a farm with a 500 ewe flock. As they lambed early in February they were brought inside into a large shed. They were bedded down in Straw so come April when they were put back out to grass there was indeed manure that had to be cleared out. Spent a good couple of days mucking out with a JCB loadall and carting it away with a Ford Tw20 and AS Marston 10 tonne trailer.

According to the USDA, sheep manure contains more nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash than both horse and cow manure. And one of the best things about it? It doesn't stink!
Because sheep make use of ingested sulfur compounds to produce wool, their manure does not have the unpleasant-smelling sulfides found in cow manure.
And unlike cow and chicken manure, sheep manure isn't 'hot,' which means it doesn't need aging,
And sheep manure is one of the best types of fertilizer.

Yea , I keep my sheep on steel mesh floor frames over the slurry pit . Come spring mix it with a tanker full of water then spread over fields. Unreal grass growth afterwards. I only use barley straw for bedding the lambing pens , wheat straw as feed. Wheat breaks up easier if they pull it in so the mesh doesn't get blocked up

I have never seen anyone here in Europe keep sheep indoors. Sheep are out there all day. As such no manure or slurry or whatever. Not impressed with the USDA quotes. :p

Yea Ireland is the same. When it's too cold or wet round November they go in until lambs are strong enough to survive outside, and know their mothers. Less hassle when they're lambing too

having watched the game play vids on youtube from LSinfo.. when placing the barn i see the ground alters slightly but it looks like it isn't a level base. There's a bit of a hump in there. Also, its got a dirt floor. I assume that you can select what material you have as a base?

and cutting down the trees for lumber.
Mr. Tan
Your post says "and cutting down trees for lumber."
Does this mean that we will actually be using the trees to build things?
Thanks.
And when will when we know more about hiring our canine friend?
Again thanks.

Land tax a thing?


Also.. maintenance cost on buildings. Repairing your farm house from time to time or upgrading the buildings or placing usable additions is something that could be considered. Ie ... in order to build section c of your barn/house u need section b completed... could also utilize the forestry job as shown in other sneak peaks. Hands on preservation of your farm would be interesting

Excellent point. I use this all the time...
