Harvesting items from animals no longer requires wasting precious time chasing after them. During last Saturday's Weekly Workshop, we built a few different kinds of animal harvesters that worked in different ways, but for this guide we will be building the most compact and easy to use harvesters we made over the weekend.
How to Create an Automatic Cow, Pig, and Sheep Harvester
The cow, pig, and sheep harvester is an easy way to collect dropped items from any one of the three animal mobs at a time or all at once. For the sake of demonstrating an example, I will first use sheep in the harvester.
Step 1 Build the Frame
Step 2 Build Piston Water Controllers
Step 3 Add Your Mob and Harvest Their Items
How to Create an All-In-One Cow, Pig, Sheep and Chicken Harvester
With this harvester, we will combine two types of harvesters: one for pigs, cows, or sheep and another for chickens. This way the amount of energy spent in collecting their dropped items is cut in half.
Step 4 Build the All-In-One Harvester Frame
Step 5 Fill the Top Platform with Water
Step 6 Complete the Cow and Pig Harvester
Now that you have a method for automating all of your animal harvesting into one convenient machine, you can spend more of your day exploring the landscape, hunting monsters, or in quality time with pet wolf.
