Just an FYI: You can mow crops in the stock game. Don't need a combine for straw!

Wait really? You just mow wheat and you get straw

level 2

But what happens to the wheat then? You lose the harvest and get only straw?

If you don't need the wheat and are just doing cowpighorse the straw is fine.

I haven't done a yield analysis yet tho.

level 4

True enough, though it begs the question... wouldn't it be more profitable in the long run if you just use the cheapest combine for 84000 to get the wheat + straw. Then sell off the wheat, keep the straw and use the profits for something else. Would take a few harvests of wheat before the combine paid for itself, but after that it would be straight profits... and wheat.

level 5

Yeah, would be an option but you have to buy an extra field thats the problem

level 6

Why? You plant wheat Harvest to get wheat while straw swaths enables and the pickup straw with baler or wagon. All this is from 1 field. Why do I need to buy an extra field?

level 5

I'm with you. Seems like throwing/mowing away money to me.

I wonder if this is paving the way for swathers and pickup headers.

there's a mow-crop mod for 17

level 3

I would like mowers to remove light bushs / brush but no leave it to the plow!

Honestly we need a bush hog.

level 1

Is there a better way (console) than the hay barn to store straw? I harvested like 4 fields and filled the barn easily...bale mechanics are a bitch and you’re limited on the number of bales rendered.

I guess it doesn’t really matter if I don’t have animals yet, but storing for a “demand” sell its better than just loading > selling.
