  • Storage sheds

FarmVille is a popular social networking game. When you begin playing, you must build your resources by caring for crops, trees and animals. Once you've gotten into the game, your focus can shift. If your game seems to be going slowly, it's almost certainly not your computer. It might be because you've got too much on hand.

Reduce your livestock. The heart of the problem lies with your FarmVille animals and the fact that they are script programs that run through java script. Java script enables your Farmville animals to be animated, but when you have a lot of animals, the java script application bogs down your browser. There are two basic ways to cut your livestock to speed up your game.

Go to the Market and choose the "Building" tab. There you will see the various buildings that you can purchase, either with FarmVille dollars or coins. Purchase a chicken coop and store up to 20 of your chickens, then sell the rest of your chickens. Purchase as many Dairy Farms as needed to store your cows. Because you can obtain unlimited Dairy Farms, you will not have to sell any cows. Sell all of the rest of your animals. This will eliminate the scripting issues and you will be able to plant, plow and harvest with great speed.

Sell all of your animals. This might seem counter-productive, but remember that gaining higher levels in FarmVille is mainly done through harvesting crops, so your focus should be on planting and harvesting crops. You always can get animals from your FarmVille neighbors.

Tip

  • If your new to the FarmVille game, save your resources by focusing primarily on getting cows and chickens and storing them in their respective buildings.

Tip

  • Remember that once you sell an animal you will be able to replace it later only by buying it or obtaining it from a neighbor.
