Important Information

I don’t live in California anymore, and sometimes I miss all of its cheesy goodness. So when I saw last night’s FarmVille 2 update, I just missed it all the more. There was a lot added by Zynga, including a long-overdue cow house, called The Real California Dairy Barn. This building is a place to store all of your prized cows, which also reduces the amount of feed it takes to feed them, AND increases your maximum feed capacity by 25. Not too shabby!

You also get a free Real California Milk calf and the ability to buy more calves for coin.

Not only that, but they added some cowbell decorations that you can collect and play in… a similar fashion to a toy xylophone. There are 8 in all that you can earn, and all it takes is feeding adult and prized cows. I got a little out of control writing down some songs I liked. I hope you like them too.

Oh, did I mention that there’s 8 more quests to complete? A set of 3 and a set of 5. Don’t know why they seperated them out, but there is also a decoration reward for the very last quest. It’s about time that they made these quest rewards a little better. All in all, I’m really enjoying this update.


There’s a lot to cover, so please bear with me.

Songs for the Cow Bells


Also released last night were some new musical decorations that you can earn simply by feeding cows.   I got through it quickly by taking all of the prized cows I had been saving up and shoving them into my newly built cow barn.  Since it costs less to feed them, it takes less speed-feed too.. and I haven’t really been using it for anything else.  Below is a breakdown of how many cows you will need to feed to get them all:

Cowbell “Do” (low C)
Cowbell “Re” (D)
Cowbell “Mi” (E)
Cowbell “Fa” (F)
Cowbell “So” (G)
Cowbell “La” (A)
Cowbell “Ti” (B)
Beginner Cowbell (high C)
6 feedings
8 feedings
10 feedings
12 feedings
16 feedings
20 feedings
26 feedings
32 feedings
Total: 130 feedings

You can play the bells even before owning them by passing your mouse over the bell on the preview screen.  I could just be a kid at heart, but I really enjoyed messing around with them. Even to the point where I wrote some songs in bell notation, as  you’ll see below.

I would be honored if you added some of your own songs in the comments section. 🙂
