In Farming Simulator 19 there are five species of animals that you can breed, these are: pigs, chicken, sheep, cows and a new species: horses. Each of them is characterized by different requirements, different benefits, different amount of workload.
Feed available in the shop
You can start breeding animals as soon as you start the game. Farming Simulator 19 makes it easier to fulfill the needs of animals - in the Store you can buy:
- bales of hay, straw or silage,
- mixed feedingstuffs for pigs,
- sacks of oats and wheat.
Before starting each husbandry you have to buy a place (animal pen) where you will keep it. Each pen has two dimensions, and you can place any number of pens on the map. Remember, however, that the maintenance fee is charged daily, even if you do not keep animals in them.
In the following chapters we present a detailed description of each animal: how to feed them, what they produce and whether it is profitable.
Every animal must have their pen cleaned up. Do that by using any of the front loader shovels to pick up feed that can spill outside a pen. This feed can be put back into the feeder.
Your animals also need water. Take any water tanker and fill it with water from:
- Tanks on the map (like the one in the picture above),
- Any bodies of water,
- A tank build on your parcel - Placeables category in the Shop.
The following chapters contain detailed descriptions of every animal species available in the game. Here, you can learn how to feed them, what you can get from these animals and learn about profitability.
