Check out our strategy guide for Dairy Dash, which includes general tips, explanations of machines and items, and a breakdown of what you can expect in each of the game’s 52 levels.

STRATEGY TIPS

  • In this game you have the whole family working on the farm. Mr. and Mrs. Smith, their daughter Emily and their son Ethan as well. This means that you can do several things at one time.
  • The biggest thing in this game is making huge chaining bonuses. If you can get making chains down to a science, then you can pass each level with an expert score.
  • You can chain several actions in advance. The orders will be performed in the order in which you executed them. The person closest to the next action will take care of the next task at hand.
  • Sometimes you have to focus on making smaller chains since making bigger ones can make the animals lose patience and become unhappy. It is recommended that in some levels you focus more on making several smaller chains in order to keep the animals happier longer.
  • Some items are obvious when it comes to making chaining bonuses such as serving water, feed and hay. You need to perform several of the same tasks back to back in order to make your chaining bonuses.
  • You can also chain with actions that are different in nature, I’m referring to anything that comes out of the workshop. You can make bonuses by chaining things like washing the animals, buying seeds or fertilizer. Even though these are all different tasks, they come from the same building so they can be used together.
  • When you hear the sound of a cricket you will know that the day is almost over. If you look over at the sun you will notice that it’s almost out of view. When it’s getting close to the end of the day you should not pick up any food. Leave it all for the end of the day so you can get a huge last minute chaining bonus. Once the rooster crows, pick up all your produce and leave the cheese for last.
  • Once you learn the pattern of an animal you will be able to predict their behavior. For example most animals will ask for food first, followed by water. Once they get the water they will give you whatever they produce (eggs, milk or wool) and then go to sleep. The exception to this rule is in level 42 when the animals will start asking for things in a different order than usual. You will not be able to predict what they are going to ask for.
  • Once an animal goes to sleep, they will begin a new round once they wake up. If you want the animals to produce more supplies then you have to pick up the food they just made or they will keep on sleeping until you do.
  • The amount of milk a cow and goat will generate corresponds with their level of their happiness. If at the time that your cows and goats produce milk they are not too happy you may only get 1 or 2 bottles of milk from them. On the other hand if they are very happy, they will give you three bottles of milk each.
  • Every action you perform with an animal will increase their heart slightly. If you want to keep an animal happy then you must take care of them quickly. The faster you take care of them the happier they will stay. Each thing you do increases their hear rate by a small percentage.
  • On the other hand if an animal is unhappy they will cause you to lose money. If an animal is kept waiting too long, they will get angry and points will be deducted from your total until you attend to them.
  • You can predict what the animals are going to do next. As soon as you see a cow stand up you know that they are going to ask for some hay. Have the hay ready so you can get it to them as soon as they ask for it.
  • If you see some of your people standing around after the rooster has crowed and you can’t understand why. It means that you forgot to pick up something somewhere on the ground. The game will not end until you pick up whatever needs to be picked up.
  • Preparation and planning are essential in this game. Always make sure that the moment your hay machine is empty that you fill it up right away. Click on several things in a row so you can have a head start on the rest of the day. By doing several actions in a row you can get more things done.
  • When Flo calls on the phone, answer it right away. Doing so will earn you a lot of extra money. Flo will ask for specific items for that day and she is willing to pay you twice as much as you would have normally received.
  • It’s very important to keep your goats happy as they net you the most money in this game since their milk is used to make cheese. Always tend to your goats as soon as possible. The happier they are the more milk they will produce.
  • Crows and wolves have to be taken care of immediately or it will affect your animals and your crop. As soon as you see either one show up, click on them and Lucky the dog will chase them away.
  • Lemonade, lemonade, lemonade – drink as much of it as possible. Drinking lemonade will make you work much faster than usual which means you can get a lot more things done in a short period of time.
  • Throw out the items that you don’t need in the compost bin. This bin will be located in different parts of the scene depending on which level you are on. At times the bin will have a recycling symbol on it.

ITEMS AND UPGRADES

Cheese Machine

  • You can only make cheese in this machine using goat’s milk.
  • It is better that once you make the cheese you let it sit and age.
  • Always collect all of it at the end of the day, the longer it sits the more value it has.
  • Waiting to collect the cheese also helps you in making large chaining bonuses at the end of the day.
  • You can look at the number above the cheese wheel to see how many pieces are stacked.
  • When the cheese making machine is around you cannot chain the pick-up of the goat’s milk with all the other produce. You can only chain it with the same type of milk since it goes into the cheese machine and not on the truck.

Hay Bailing Machine

  • Your Hay Bailing Machine is what turns feed into hay.
  • You will use the hay from the machine to feed your cows and your sheep.
  • You cannot produce additional hay unless you’ve used up everything that you made previously.
  • Depending on which level you are on you can make 1 or 2 bales of hay at a time.
  • Make sure that your machines are full at all times. Cows and sheep can be very impatient and they don’t like to wait for their food.
  • It takes a little while for the machine to process the feed. Look at the timer above the machine so you can see how long it will take to be ready. Do other things while you wait for the hay to be ready.

Workshop

  • The workshop is where you get certain supplies for your farm.You can obtain seeds or fertilizers for your garden.
  • You can get the cleaning supplies to clean your animals with from there.
  • Clean animals are happy animals so make sure you wash them right away.
  • Always keep in mind that you can combine any of these items to make chaining bonuses.

Lemonade

  • The lemonade stand will appear on level 7.
  • Drinking lemonade will give your helpers a big boost of energy.
  • Their energy burst only lasts for a little while.
  • Drinking lemonade does not affect your chaining bonuses.
  • Drinking lemonade can come in handy when you’re trying to service your animals quickly.
  • Taking care of animals quickly means that they will be happier and will make more produce for you.
  • In the beginning stages you will be responsible for making sure that the lemonade stand is full at all time.
  • You can tell how many glasses are ready by the number above the machine.
  • As soon as the son Ethan appears (level 39) you will no longer need to make your own lemonade. Ethan will make it automatically.

Chopping wood

  • Starting in level 21 you will be able to chop some wood in order to fix the chicken shed.
  • Once you see the stack of wood highlighted, click on it and Mr. Smith will chop it up.
  • It can sometimes take a while to do but fixing the shed will keep your chickens happy.
  • If the sheds are not fixed right away then your chickens will become unhappy and may start deducting points from your total.
  • While Mr. Smith is chopping wood you have to make sure that your other helpers are working extra fast. Give them some lemonade so they can get things done quicker.

Lucky the Dog

  • Lucky the dog will appear starting in level 14.
  • Lucky is there to chase the crows and wolves away.
  • Whenever you see crows or wolves appear click on them and Lucky will chase them away.

Ethan

  • Will make his first appearance around level 38.
  • When he shows up he will automatically make the lemonade for you so you do not have to worry about it anymore.
  • He will also be in charge of answering the telephone when Flo calls in her orders.
  • When you hear the phone ring, Ethan will stand still in one place and his body will be highlighted in green. Just click on Ethan at this time and you’ll be able to read what Flo needs for that day.
  • At times you will see Ethan flapping his arms around, he mostly does that when the crows and the wolves appear. Don’t try to click on him at that point since it doesn’t do anything to him.

SCORING

  • Dairy Dash has a good way to summarize your scores at the end of every level.
  • In the level summary you will see a breakdown of how you did in each of the following 3 categories.

Chaining bonus

  • When you do similar actions in a row you will receive chaining bonuses.
  • This is the best way for you to obtain expert scores in this game.
  • The more things you chain in a row, the higher your bonus multiplier will be.
  • We have more detailed examples of chaining bonuses under the "Strategy Tips" section at the beginning of this guide.

Truck bonus

  • In levels in which you see the truck appear, you need to repair it as soon as you see the wrench icon appear over it.
  • When the truck is broken Mr. Smith needs to fix it right away.
  • You cannot get extra points for taking produce to the market while your truck is broken.
  • Having the truck fixed means that you will be able to earn more for your produce because you will not need to rent a truck in order to take the produce to the market.
  • You will earn 50% more for your produce when you pick it up after the truck is fixed.So do not deliver goods until the truck is fixed.

Flo Bonus

  • You can earn a Flo Bonus by answering the phone whenever it rings at the farm.
  • Flo will always be the one on the phone asking for special orders.
  • Flo will not call in orders in every level. You will know Flo is calling when you hear the telephone ringing.
  • Whenever she requests a special item she will pay you twice the amount of money you would have normally received for a product.

Bonus Score

  • Your bonus score is the total amount of all three bonuses combined (the Flo Bonus, the Truck Bonus and your Chain Bonus)

MINI-GAMES

  • There are 3 mini games that appear in the game every few levels.
  • Even though there is a goal assigned for each one, if you don’t pass the level you can still advance in the game.
  • The purpose of the mini game is to accumulate bonus points.
  • If you make your goal you will see a star icon next to that level when you complete it.

  • Make sure that you do not catch rotten fruit because if you do, points will be taken away from your total.
  • You can tell a fruit is about to drop once it starts shaking on the tree.
  • Always place your basket on the side that has the most fruit falling down at one time.
