Building materials needed for completion.

  • 25px 3 Wrought Iron Hinge

  • 25px 3 Dairy Fence Pipe

  • 25px 3 Roof Shingles

Neighbors will be needed to finish “building” your Cow Shed.

The Prized Cow Shed can store up to 12 prized Cows and halves the amount of  Feed needed to feed them. It increases your feed capacity by 25. The prized cows stored in the Prized Cow Shed will not count toward your Animal Population.  12 Speed-Feeds are needed to instantly harvest it again, or you will have to wait  18 hours.

Using the Cow Barn:

Inside the Cow Barn, you will see placements that you can fill with Prized Cows.


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.

Swiss Cheese:

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.


Additional Information:

  • 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.
