Farming Simulator 22: Buy & feed animals – information on all animal species

In the LS22 you can buy animals again, feed them and enjoy their yields. You can keep horses, cows, sheep, pigs, chickens and even beehives. Here you can find out what you have to pay attention to with the animal species, how to keep the stable clean and give them water.

Buy animals & bring them to the farm

Before you buy animals from the local animal dealer, you must first build the necessary stable facilities for keeping them on your farm. To do this, open the construction mode and go to the middle tab “Animals”. Here you can now look at all the stables for cows, sheep, pigs, horses, chickens and bees and decide on the right one.

Once the stable is in place, you can directly Buy animals using the paw symbol at the stables or you visit the animal dealer on your card and buy appropriate species. After the purchase, you can now bring the animals to the farm yourself in a cattle truck or you can leave the delivery to the cattle dealer. Of course, this costs you something.

Provide, feed & breed animals with water

If your animals have arrived safely in the stable, you have to take care of them adequately. You don’t have to actively take care of the water supply, all your animals get water automatically when they are in the barn.

You have to feed them yourself, however and you also have to change the bedding with the straw spreader from time to time. Simply unload the relevant feed at the unloading symbol in front of the stable.

If you do everything right, your animals will become happy and old. In the process, they then multiply as a reward and increase your livestock. This is how breeding works in the game.

In the following, we will give you more information about the individual animal species and what you have to consider with them.

Cows

  • Suitable feed: Grass (40% effectiveness), hay (80% effectiveness), millet, silage and total mixed rations (best forage, 100% effectiveness)
  • Products: Milk, manure and manure

Cows come in different breeds that bring you different profits. For example, Braun-Swiss and Holstein cows are best suited for dairy farming, while Angus and Limousin bring more profit. The milk quantities and sales prices of the cow breeds differ accordingly.

Make sure you give your cows Total Mix (TMR) if you want to improve their milk production. You produce TMR by mixing hay, straw, silage and mineral feed in a mixer wagon. By feeding cows, they also produce manure, which you can collect in the manure tank or a septic tank.

If you use straw bedding in the cowshed, you also create manure. For this you have to place a dung heap in construction mode (under the silo extensions) next to the barn.

Cows have the following characteristics:

  • Bless you: Increase this value by unloading straw in the stable.
  • Reproduction: As soon as cows reach the age of 18 months and are accordingly healthy, they start to reproduce.

Horses

  • Suitable feed: Hay (40% effectiveness), oats and millet (each 60% effectiveness)

You can train horses for a high selling price. Purchased horses are automatically given a name that you can change in the animal menu. By training a horse, its fitness level increases and the higher the level, the higher the selling price. Ride your horses daily to increase your fitness level. At the top left you will see a percentage display that fills up while you are riding. If this has reached 100%, you have covered the daily riding needs.

Horses have the following characteristics:

  • Bless you: Increase this value by unloading straw in the stable.
  • Cleanliness: Groom your horses regularly so that the value for cleanliness stays at the top. To do this, step up to the horse until the brush symbol appears. Then press the interaction button.
  • Fitness: Increased by daily riding.
  • Daily riding: Shows the daily riding requirement in percent.

Pigs

  • Suitable feed: Corn and millet (50% effectiveness), wheat and barley (25% effectiveness), rapeseed, sunflower and soybeans (20% effectiveness), potatoes and sugar beet (5% effectiveness)
  • Products: Manure and manure

Pigs can breed and sell for a high price if you take good care of them. By feeding pigs, they also produce manure, which you can collect in the manure tank or a sump. If you use straw bedding in the pigsty, you also create manure. For this you have to place a dung heap in construction mode (under the silo extensions) next to the barn.

Pigs have the following characteristics:

  • Bless you: Increase this value by unloading straw in the stable.
  • Reproduction: As soon as pigs reach the age of 6 months and are accordingly healthy, they start to reproduce.

Sheep

  • Suitable feed: Grass and hay (100% effectiveness)
  • Products: Wool

Sheep give you wool as a special product. To sell wool, you have to load the finished pallets with a pallet fork at the sheep pasture and then bring it to the spinning mill on the map. Alternatively, you can bring wool to your production facility for further processing.

Sheep have the following characteristics:

  • Bless you: Increase this value by unloading straw in the stable.
  • Reproduction: As soon as sheep reach the age of 8 months and are accordingly healthy, they start to reproduce.

Chicken

  • Suitable feed: Wheat, barley and millet (100% effectiveness)
  • Products: Owner

After chickens have laid eggs, egg pallets appear next to the hen house. Loads them with a forklift onto a suitable transport trailer and either takes them to another production facility for further processing or to a point of sale.

Chickens have the following characteristics:

  • Bless you: Increase this value by unloading feed at the stable.
  • Reproduction: As soon as chickens reach the age of 6 months and are accordingly healthy, they start to reproduce.

Beehives

Beehives are a specialty among animals. They produce honey that can be sold directly or processed further. You can freely determine the zone to which the honey should be delivered. In addition, beehives increase the yield of rapeseed, sunflower and potato fields if you place them near these fields.

You can see more details about the care of the animal species in LS 22 in the following video of the YT channel Cornhub:
