Grains, that I grow and pigs do not eat I am able to sell to maintain my profit.
On farming simulator growing 80 pigs you will have overproduction of pigs, so you will be forced to sell pigs twice a day, if you want to maintain maximum profitability and population growth wealth.
As I calculate 95 percent productivity of 75 pigs are making 2 baby pigs every two hours.
If we calculate numbers we get we can earn up to 12 little pigs every day per day.
As we have no big trailer we can use small one which contains of 9 grow pigs in it.
As we transport pigs to selling point we will receive up to 11000$.
