Where to Tan Cowhides in Far Cry 2

Cowhide is rare in Far Cry 2 but there are a few places you can get a lot of it. For a low-level player, the easiest place to get some cowhide is the Falador area. There are quite a few cows in this area. You can find them south of Falador, north of Yanille, and west of the Nightmare Zone.

Bark tanning

You can learn how to prepare and process cowhides with bark tanning by reading this article. First, prepare a pan with a large amount of water and a half-carrier bag of bark. Then, place the pan outside or on a vent so that the steam can escape. Place the hide into the pan and leave it to soak for one hour. The hide will turn a rich, dark color, and the resulting liquid will be a concentrated stock solution. Make sure that you allow the hide to cool completely before you begin tanning. Otherwise, the tanning process could ruin your skin.

Using baking soda

Tanning cowhides is an art form, but the traditional method leaves your hide with a bluish-gray hue and is quite labor-intensive. However, this method is worth a try if you want to restore the natural color and pattern of your cowhide. Traditional tanning uses tanninnic acid from tree bark, which can take up to 6 months. This process can also stain the cowhide, so you need to make sure you use enough of the substance.

Using a tannery

Using a tannery to prepare cowhides is the ultimate way to create a custom leather product. It allows you to personalize your product in many ways and is a great way to add flair to your F2P world. There are many benefits to this process, and the best part is that it can be done at home, saving you a ton of time.

Stockpiling cowhide

To make more money in Farmville 2, you should stock up on cowhide. You can purchase it from your General Store and the Davenport Homestead, both located on the left side of the front door. It can also be bought from any other General Store and is located on the counter to the right of the merchant. Cowhide is worth 209 but soft leather is worth more than hard leather.


Pre-tanning cowhides in a free-to-produce (F2P) tanning process involves drumming each hide for about five minutes. Next, the hides are soaked in a mixture that contains sodium formate and 2 quarts of water. After that, the hides are buried in bark and left to dry naturally for six weeks. This process is the most common way of tanning cowhides.
