With Farming Simulator 17, you discover how to keep and tend animals in this latest entry in the agriculture series. There are more options for farmers than ever before, with the possibility to keep cows, sheep, chickens and, for the first time in the series, pigs!
Players who properly tend to their animals will be able to bring in more income for their farms! Fresh straw for bedding and suitable food for each animal’s diet means more wool from sheep flocks and more milk produced by cow herds. Each animal requires a specially crafted diet, with a careful balance between different food types which you can grow yourself on your own farm. Many vehicles and tools, including many new pieces of equipment, are dedicated to the tending of animals a selection of which you can see in the trailer below.
Keep the feeding areas tidy and clean, properly feed and water your animals, and offer them fresh bedding regularly. Doing this will cause your animals’ happiness to raise, maximizing their levels of reproduction. Keeping up with these needs means smart farmers can make a good profit by buying small groups of animals, then selling them in larger numbers after they multiply!
Farming Simulator 17 releases 25th October on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
