What is the silo in Stardew Valley and what is it for?

 Without a doubt, it is one of the most important buildings in Stardew Valley, so if you want to feed your animals, you should start by building the silo. For this reason, in this section of our complete Stardew Valley guide, we will tell you what the Silo is and what it is for.

What is the Silo for?

The silo is basically a structure that we can get at a low price, but that will be very useful, especially for feeding the animals. In addition, it is necessary for the winter season, where it is preferred that the animals are sheltered.

Specifically the silo, these are buildings where we can store hay (an element used to feed animals). Normally, these constructions are used more in the winter time, since at other times of the year, the animals choose to feed on the grass of your lands; but in the cold season, it is more complex.

How to build the silo?

It's best if you start building silos before stables or pens, as it saves time and we don't have to spend gold or worry about gathering hay quickly. If you want to save coins, it is better to opt for the silo, since the pens or stables range around 4,000 or 6,000 gold.

Now, as for the concrete construction, we must go to Robin's carpentry, which is located north of the town. Once there, we have to have the following materials:

  • 100 gold coins
  • 100 stones
  • 10 units of clay
  • 5 copper ingots

Then you will only have to take these materials to the oven and leave them for a while until the process ends. Finally, if you want more efficient silos, you can upgrade Corrals and Barns.
