The FarmVille 2 Studio and the Real California Milk association have teamed up together to bring you the storage building that you have been so eager to get. Introducing, the Cow Barn! Store your Prized Cows in this home and feed them all with a single click. If that isn't enough, Prized Cows in the Barn will also require less Feed and give +25 Feed Capacity!
Note: The Real California Milk stamp will be visible during the length of the promotion. Once the promo has ended, this stamp will disappear. To learn more about the Real California Milk association, click HERE.
If you are level 10 or higher, you will see the following pop-up. Click the green “Place on Farm” button to get started.
Once you have placed the Cow Barn onto your farm, Cornelius will stop by with an exclusive baby Real CA Cow!
Note: Your first Real CA Cow will not count towards your Animal Maximum Capacity. Additional Real CA Cows can be purchased in the General Store; each additional Cow will count towards the Animal max cap.
Building the Cow Barn:
Your next step is collecting construction parts. You will need the following items to start building your Cow Barn:
- Wrought Iron Hinges
- Dairy Fence Pipes
- Roof Shingles
Click on the “Ask” button to send requests for Dairy Fence Pipes and Roof Shingles to your Neighbors. If you do not wish to wait for your friends, you can skip any of these tasks for Farm Bucks.
Note: You can send a request for materials to your Friends every 18 hours.
Once you have collected the required items, click on the “Start Building!” button at the bottom of the construction Menu.
Now that the Cow Barn is almost complete, you will need a little help from your Neighbors to finish the job. The Cow Barn requires four additional mechanics, so click on the “Ask Friends” button to send some crew requests to your Friends. When they accept, you will see the spots in the Build Menu begin to fill. If you do not wish to wait for your friends, click the “Hire One” button to purchase crew members with Farm Bucks.
Using the Cow Barn:
Click on the Cow Barn to open the main menu.
Inside the Cow Barn, you will see placements that you can fill with Prized Cows. Prized Cows will take up one spot in your Barn regardless of breed (see below: Prized Highland Cow).
Adding & Removing Cows:
To add Prized Cows in the Barn, check the “Auto Fill” box and click on the green “Add Prized Cows” button. All of your Prized Cows will automatically walk into the Barn!
To remove a Prized Cow from the Barn, open the main menu and click on the red “–“ (minus symbol) box on the bottom left hand corner of the placement slot (see below: A).
The Cows cards have symbols on them to indicate different things:
A. Minus Symbol: Remove Cow
B. Feed: How much Feed the Cow will consume.
C. Swiss Cheese: How much the Cow will produce (see below: Feeding)
Prized Cows stored in the Barn will eat less Feed they normally do: 4 Feed for each Cow, regardless of what type. For example, a Cow that eats 13 Feed outside of the Barn will eat 4 Feed when inside the Barn.
Each time you harvest the Cow Barn you will get Swiss Cheese, which can be used in Crafting Kitchen Recipes. Fill your Cow Barn all the way to get the most Swiss Cheese when you harvest!
Note: The Swiss Cheese will automatically go into your Inventory.
- The timer for your Cow Barn will pause when placed in Storage, and then resume once placed back on your farm.
- If you do not wish to use the Cow Barn feature, it can be sold (frame only) or stored in your Inventory.
- If you want to see how much time you have left to harvest, hover your cursor over the Barn.
- You are limited to one Cow Barn per farm.
- Rotate the Barn to view a different angle!
