Back in the middle of the month, we brought you news concerning the then-unreleased Cattle Drive Timed Mission in FrontierVille. Now, just in time for the launch of a new year, Zynga has released the Timed Mission to the public. As we told you then, you'll need to complete three tasks to finish this mission: Sell 20 Adult Cows, Collect 20 Rodeo Hats and Collect 20 Feed Bags.
Now that the mission has launched, we know that you'll have until January 7 to accept the mission on your account, and you'll need to complete it within a four day time limit in order to receive your reward of a single Horse and 250 XP.
As for collecting the items themselves, the Rodeo Hats are collected through individual gift requests that you send to your friends, while the Bags of Feed are collected through general wall posts, where your friends receive a Feed Bag every time they help by giving you one.
Remember, you don't need to actually start the mission until January 7, so if you know you don't have 20 Adult Cows on your Homestead, feel free to take a few days to grow your cows to adulthood before starting the mission. In this way, you won't have to worry about whether or not you can make it to 20 Adult Cows within a four day time limit!
As we get closer to the new year, we'll make sure to let you know if Zynga releases any other missions, or even a themed mission to celebrate.
What do you think of the Cattle Drive Timed Mission? Do you think it's an easy mission, since we gave you a heads-up on the requirements, or are you struggling to grow your Cows in time? Let us know in the comments.
