John Deere American Farmer
Easy Money by moving Angus cattle
Here's a cheat that works by instantly increasing the weight of your Angus cattle. To do this you need to have at least three pastures. The first two pastures can be the minimum size square. It works better if the third pasture is large. First you buy a few angus cattle and place them in the first pasture and wait for them to gain some weight, but not reach maturity. The second pasture is not used for keeping cattle, but is there to enable you to use the rotate pasture command.
When you're ready for some easy money, buy as many angus cattle as you can and place these in the third pasture. The initial weight will be 300 pounds. Then transfer one of your cows from the first pasture to the third pasture. All of the cattle in the third pasture will instantly be the same weight as the one that was transferred in. Then sell all the cattle in the third pasture. You can do this over and over, as long as you keep a few angus cattle in the first pasture that have a decent weight.
