**TL;DR: For efficient farming, use Min/Max Chickens for baking and consider eggs for holiday events.**

**Animal Feeding Costs**

- Feed costs $50 per bucket (5 feeds), adding $10/day to upkeep.
- I’m not calculating barn rent costs.

**Chicken Math**

- Each basket you grind sells for $80.
- Daily chicken cost is $17.
- Profit per chicken is $63/day.
- With 6 chickens: $378/day, totaling $1,512 in 4 days.

**Cow Math**

- A brown cow costs $600, with $120 daily upkeep ($1,080 total).
- From one cow, you can get 3 meats ($960 each) and a case of shank (4 at $260 each), totaling $3,920 in value.
- Profit after costs is $2,840.

**Processing in the Workshop**

- Workshop processing can increase profits, but meat becomes the weakest output.
- Use the barn for dairy cows and goats, and chickens for eggs to maximize profits.

**Baking Considerations**

- The main issue in baking calculations may stem from egg pricing.
- A basket of eggs costs $17; regular milk is about $120, and goat milk is $150.
- For a pie: Goat milk + egg + expensive wheat ($280) totals $447.
- Selling 4 pies at $250 each gives $1,000.
- Profit per pie batch is $1,553 (after update you now get 2 pies).

**Final Thoughts**

Optimize your farm layout for maximum daily profit.
