Cow Pasture: Breed even more animals now!
The Cow Pasture is now available to breed more animals in FarmVille! Harvesting the animals inside the Cow Pasture counts towards Animal Mastery! And guess what? More animals in your Cow Pasture means more chances of finding adorable Calves! Build your Cow Pasture and start growing these cute little animals today!
The Cow Pasture is the sixth of seven total new breeding buildings to be released.
Farmers with an Animal Trough will receive a message to replace it with a new Cow Pasture, Livestock Pen, Zoo, Pet Run or Wildlife Habitat. But do not fear, the Cow Pasture, the Livestock Pen, the Zoo, the Pet Run, Wildlife Habitat, and other forthcoming breeding pens will offer you even more opportunities to claim Animals!
Note:Now that the new Cow Pasture is here, the Dairy Farm will no longer be available in the Market.
- Players will be able to keep their existing Dairy Farms.
- The old Dairy Farms won’t produce calves for any new cows (but current cows will still produce calves that you can share).
- Once the Cow Pasture is released, the first time a you click an old Dairy Farm, you’ll be presented with the option to trade-in all their old Dairy Farms for an exclusive cow and Animal Feed. If you decline, you’ll be presented with the offer again every once in a while.
- To get calves that you can keep and share, place a new Cow Pasture! All cows can produce a calf in the new Cow Pasture!
Breeding your Cow Pasture Animals:
You can breed a wide variety of Cow Pasture animals, such as cows, shorthorns, longhorns, yaks, bovines, and oxen.
You don’t need pairs of animals to find a Calf; you just need one of any particular cow in your Cow Pasture to have a chance of finding its Calf upon harvesting the Cow Pasture!

You will need the following Building Materials to complete your Cow Pasture:
- 10x Hay Bundle
- 10x Stone
- 10x Tin Sheet
There are four ways of obtaining Building Materials:

You can store up to 20 animals in each Cow Pasture that you own. Like Orchards, you can have more than one Cow Pasture on your farm and can choose which Cow Pasture you would like to use to store a specific Cow Pasture animal.
Clicking on the Cow Pasture gives you the option to:
- Look inside
- Apply Instant Grow
You can view all your current animals inside your Cow Pasture, including Animal Mastery status and quantity, when selecting the “Look Inside” option. You can also use Animal Instant Grow which will be applied to all animals inside the Cow Pasture:
Cows that are qualified for the Cow Pasture but are not placed inside the Cow Pasture (whether you own these animals or not) appear translucent:
Some cows are available in the Market.
Harvesting your animals inside the Cow Pasture:
You will see a pink arrow above the Cow Pasture once it’s ready for harvest and an orange illumination around when hovering over:
When you harvest your Cow Pasture for coins and Animal Mastery, you have a chance to find a Calf! The more animals inside your Cow Pasture, the better your chances of finding a Calf upon harvest.
To qualify to create a Calf, a cow must be in the Cow Pasture from before 10% harvest progress until the Cow Pasture is harvested.
When you find a Calf, you’ll have the option to share an extra one with your friends!
All calves produced by the Cow Pasture can be shared with friends via the Newsfeed! So keep a lookout in your Newsfeed for Calves that you can claim from your friends!
You don’t need pairs of animals to find a Calf from your own Cow Pasture; you just need one of any particular animals in your Cow Pasture to have a chance of finding its Calf upon harvesting the Cow Pasture!
When you don’t find a Calf upon harvest, you will find Animal Feed which you can use to feed Mystery Babies from breeding pens like the Wildlife Habitat, Pet Run, Zoo, and Livestock Pen!
When you find a Calf after harvest, you will be able to place the little baby on your farm. There will be a green illumination hovering over open areas on your farm:
After placing your new little baby on the farm, you will have eight options:
- Grow Up! – Use Farm Cash to complete animal immediately
- Apply Instant Grow
- Store Item
Your Calf will remain a baby unless you choose to ‘Grow Up!’ using Farm Cash.
Calves of cows who came from the Mystery Game can’t be grown up; these adult cows are exclusive to the Mystery Game and will have “Mystery Game Exclusive” in their menus when you click on the baby.
Don’t forget: To qualify to create a Calf, an animal must be in the Cow Pasture from before 10% harvest progress until the Cow Pasture is harvested.
COMING SOON: Calf mastery!
When trying to move an animal, the appropriate Cow Pasture will illuminate in blue and then you can place inside:
The last three animals placed inside your Cow Pasture will be featured after exiting the “Look Inside” option:
We hope you enjoy breeding a greater variety of animals and continuing to collect your Animal Mastery signs!
Happy breeding, Farmers!
