Focus Home Interactive released a brand new gameplay trailer for Giants Software’s Farming Simulator 17 showcasing how to care for your farm animals.

Additionally, farmers have more options 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. 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.


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 increase, 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.

Farming Simulator 17 releases on October 25 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
