Animal cleanliness (straw trick)

Post by dapals51 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 7:29 pm

Did seasons get rid of the straw trick and do we now have to keep pens clean?

Straw trick?

As for cleanliness, you.use a bucket on a loader of some sort. :)

I play using seasons and still use the straw trick. Just spread it in front of the feeding trough. Its still there after a full season 100% cleanliness all year :)

Doesn't straw rot if left in the open? You might have better chances using wood chips that what I do

Im playing on woodshire using that maps cow pen. The trough is inside a building. Im pretty sure thats why it hasnt rotted. Woodchips do work better for outside troughs.

If you use a modded animal pasture that isn't seasons ready the straw would rot even if it had a roof over so I always use wood chips personally just in case.

It might not work on Lone oak because the straw just activates the trigger for the straw fill

You can still use the woodchips, which could be also considered realistic.
