Story Of Seasons: Pioneers Of Olive Town – Livestock Guide

One of the main features of Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town is raising livestock to obtain various resources for crafting or selling for a profit. As you continue through the game, you’ll be able to own even more kinds of animals as you open up more farmland and repair more farm facilities.

Different types of livestock offer different products, but in order to keep them on your farm, you will need the right type of facility. For everything you need to know about obtaining, keeping, and breeding livestock, we’ve got it all covered right here.

Taking Care of Animals

Feeding Animals

You will need Fodder to feed your animals, this can either be purchased from the General Store or grown on your farm. Eventually, it will get pretty tiresome manually refilling all of the troughs in your barns and coops, but that is where Silo’s come in.

Repair the Dilapidated Silo in the third farm area to be able to store Fodder. You can then put Automatic Feeders (recipe obtained at Animal Care Level 6) in your barns and coops and link them to the Silo so that it will take Fodder from the Silo each morning to automatically feed your animals. You can then upgrade to a Silage to store even more Fodder at Nigel’s Handiworks.

You can ring the bell outside of your farm facilities on sunny days to allow your animals to graze. Allowing them to graze for longer than an hour each day also raises their stats.

Caring for Animals

You will need to care for your animals on a daily basis if you want to make the most out of raising livestock. As long as your animals are happy and fed, they will produce items every day in terms of milk and eggs. Fur and wool can take a little longer, as the animal needs to regrow its coat before you can shear it again. Produce does not carry over day-to-day, so you either collect it that day or lose it.

Your animals will indicate whether they need shearing, brushing, petting, milking, or something else with little icons above their head. Performing these actions will increase the animal’s happiness and friendship. 

Caring for your animals by feeding them, collecting produce, and petting them will all increase your Animal Care Level. As your Animal Care level increases, you will unlock new animal breeds, get boosts to animal friendship and happiness, unlock breeding, new crafting recipes, and more.

Happiness and Friendship

Your animals all have a Happiness and Friendship Level that can be viewed inside of any of your farm facilities. Raising both of these is important as it affects the following.

Friendship:

  • Breeding
  • Quality of products
  • Chance to get + quality products

Happiness:

  • Producing items
  • Chance to get + quality products

Buying and Developing Farm Facilities

Once you have repaired the Dilapidated Coop and Dilapidated Barn, you’ll be able to purchase more of them from Nigel’s Handiworks in Olive Town, so you can house as many animals as you like.

You’ll also be able to develop your farm facilities into bigger versions, such as a Big Barn or Big Coop, which will allow you to house more animals, but also allows you to apply Breeding Kits. Additionally, you can develop your Silo into a Silage to store more fodder at any one time.

Developing your farm facilities does not improve existing facilities, so for example, purchasing a Big Barn will still mean that you keep your standard barn.

Breeding Livestock

Once you have a Big Barn or Big Coop, you will be able to purchase Breeding Kits by speaking to Patricia in the Animal Shop in Olive Town. Once you choose the animal you wish to apply the Breeding Kit to, it will either become pregnant if it is cattle, or an egg will appear in the coop if it is a chicken. After a few days, the baby animal will be born/will hatch, and a few days after that, it will grow into a full adult and start producing items.

In order to breed animals, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Have a Big Barn and/or Coop
  • Animal Care Level 5
  • Have two of the same animal types (they don’t need to share the same breed, so you can breed a Chicken and a Silkie Chicken)
  • Have leveled the Friendship Level of the animal you wish to breed
  • Have space in your Barn or Coop for the baby animal
