ok so aside from havnig to travel sometimes long distances to find cattle, ever try to get one back to your farm and put it in a pen yet to get milk for cake?
i tend to have a lot of sheep spawning on my farm (no jokes about canadians and ppl from nebraska or wisconsin). im pondering perhaps slaughtering them to see if i get some cows to spawn closer to home.
even so getting one into a pen should be interesting.. fishing rod? i dunno.
wheres my lasso!
I've been herding up sheep, pigs and chickens myself. It's very difficult and annoying. I've been using a fishing rod but it doesn't really work very well, so I had to resort to making narrow pathways to my pens lined with 2 vertical blocks of dirt. It's annoying to clean up later but it's the only reliable way to captures animals for now, until they implement some system by which animals follow you.
