Can I be honest about Lone Oak?

Post by Vfarms » Sun Sep 29, 2019 8:42 pm

I really like every part of the map, but owning cows is a pain. With the big grass fields and the cool barn, I set up a dairy farm. Everything is too tight and cleaning up is a headache. Can anyone suggest a good dairy map? I’m on console.

Put a layer of straw down over the feeding area it's (somewhat) realistic and prevents cleaning up

I always placed straw to prevent the mess from animals, but lately started to use buckets to pick it up however, that idea of using the broom attachments by hand is a gold award winning idea for cleaning up

First of all, what are you trying to clean up with that's too big to go in the barn? I've used everything from a skid steer to a big wheel loader to both clean the feed area and remove manure. Maybe it's because I did it so much in FS17. It's much easier in 19 since the entire barn is the feed trigger. You don't even have to aim for the feeding trough. Just scoop it up and dump it right back in the same spot.

Second, what's this about placing straw to prevent animal messes? I'm assuming the game can't put silage where there is already something else.

Third, I've never used the brooms but that has my interests.

2nd point, yeah its sort of a cheat.
Before putting animals in pen or immediately after cleaning,use a bucket or similar to spread a thin layer over entire marked feed area, I used straw/woodchips but i figure anything that isn't a feed for the animals will work.
As you said it simply prevents the game from generating mess as there is already something there.
Edit: its unrealistic but a handy hack for the lazy farm simmer

You can pick up the broom?!? My mind is BLOWN, lol. Seriously I love things like this. I can't wait to try it out. MrSealyP needs to do a video showing the rest of the console world about this hidden magic.
