This is our latest version and is a small map with tight roads and gateways and now includes the Pig and Beef Fattening mods.
Map has 27 fields and some grassed areas for cutting grass , hay or silage to feed your animals. You will have plenty to do on this narrow little map but choose your equipment carefully as big machinery will not fit.
Birchwood includes the standard crops and two additional Multi Fruit crops of Oats and Rye. You will also have to run your Milk to the Dairy to sell as there is no milk truck running.
With the Fattening mods, you purchase the animals like you would with the in game animals You feed, water and put straw down and in return they produce manure and slurry to either spread on the fields or can be run to sale at the garden centre and you also fatten them for sale.
If you wait until after they have all fattened they will then start to produce more animals in each mod so you don’t have to purchase any more and then run this like a breading mod.
You can sell your Wool pallets at the Lidl Shop and you if you want to get full production with your animals you will need to fill up your water trailer mods at the water pipe next to the bridge near the dairy or at the pond just behind the Arable farms silo area as the map has the water mod installed (in game water trailer does not work with this, see the link below)
There are four farm locations on the map, Arable, Dairy, Pig and Beef Fattening Mods and the Sheep farm. There are also four sale locations at the Mill, Inn, Lidl and the Butchers for your Fattening Mods. Birchwood also includes a BGA for the local towns needs, a bale sale and the Manure Mod.
There is a silage clamp at both the Dairy Farm, Pig / Beef Farm, and also 2 pits at the BGA.
There is also a food storage for your animals feed and bedding at both the Dairy and and Pig / Beef Farms too.
The map also has the Woolpallet collector that holds 15 pallets so you don’t have to keep an eye on your wool pallets to often (depending on the number of sheep that you have)
Map is a low spec and has been tested to run with all computers that can run FS13.
