Build a solid block layer above the ocean parts of the ticking area around your farm. I'm wondering if the number of livestock I have affects my ability to spawn monsters for grinding. My only idea is the aversion obelisk from ender.io but I'm still a ways away from that. this is a bug that has been in the game for a very long time.
