How do you get other types of livestock in Banished? I started with chickens, but can't find a way to get Cows or Sheep.

You can trade for other types of livestock once you get a trading post up and running and a merchant arrives who has them to trade.

  • Yeah I had trouble finding it when I was playing until I realized I could just look in the help file. I had tried googling it to no avail so I thought I'd add it somewhere someone else might find it.

If you have built a trading post but none of the traders that visit you have lifestock, build another one. Each trading post you build is visited by a different random selection of traders.
