Questions about pig farming

Question: Do I have to build some kind of building to acquire pigs for my clones?

Answer: No, not necessarily. But if you plan to engage in livestock breeding in earnest - we recommend building a pigsty. This building gives you significant advantages when raising livestock, increases the weight of the litter and makes it more convenient to keep the animals.

Question: Let's say I have a clone in the "Philistine" status. This clone already has 10 head of pigs. If one of the sows of this clone brings a litter (boar), what happens to this "extra" boar? This clone can't have any more animals, can it?

Answer: Yes, this clone will not be able to keep such an "extra" piggy. If you have another clone in your account who can accept an "extra" piglet, that piglet will be given to him. If you have no more clones or if all your clones already have the maximum number of pigs, that boar will automatically go to the State Farm Nursery and you will receive State Farm coupons according to the standard rules.

Question: What if this "extra" animal were not a boar, but a sow pig?

Answer: If you have another clone in your account who can accept an "extra" sow, that piglet will be given to him. If you have no more clones or if all your clones already have the maximum number of pigs - such a sow will be given to the state free of charge.

Question: Is there a limit to the ratio of boars/sows within the total number of pigs in a clone?

Answer: No, there are no such restrictions. For example, a burgher can have both 10 sows and 10 boars - as well as in any other ratio.

Question: Do I have to build a pigsty when I increase my herd to a certain size?

Answer: It's not necessary.

Question: Does the Biotechnology Division have a limit on the volume of pig manure fertilizer produced per day?

Answer: No, there are no such restrictions. You can produce as much Pig Ambrosia fertilizer as you want in one go or in one 24-hour period.

Question: Is there a limit on the number of pork carcasses processed by the Meat Factory per day?

Answer: No, there are no such restrictions. You can process as many carcasses as you want at one time or in one 24-hour period.

Question: Do I have to build some kind of building to mate pigs?

Answer: No, it is not necessary if you will be renting a boar from the Piggery Fair. But if you plan to engage in livestock breeding in earnest - we recommend building a pigsty. This building gives you significant advantages when raising livestock, increases the weight of the litter and makes it more convenient to keep the animals.

Question: I have a sow. She became pregnant at 330 days of age. What will happen to the litter, because the piglets should be born when the sow is over 350 days old?

Answer: Don't worry. Your sow cannot mate after she is 350 days old, but she can still bear litter from a mating that took place earlier. Her pregnancy will proceed as usual and the piglets will be born on time.

Question: Solar Plates can only be purchased from the Alchemy Lab?

Answer: No, not only that. You can also buy ready-made solar plates at the Merchants' Guild Commodity Exchange.

Question: What happens if I have more animals than can fit in the pig barn when I build it? For example, if I have 100 animals, and I build a pigsty for 20?

Answer: It makes sense that in this situation, not all of your animals would be able to get into the pigsty. You can't choose which of your animals will go into the pigsty and which will stay in their owners' backyards. Accordingly, those of your animals that are not in the pigsty will not benefit from its presence. That is, they won't be able to mate outside of the Progeny Pig Fair, their litter won't weigh more than usual, they won't be able to feed from the pig barn feeder, and so on.

Question: Why is my boar's muscle mass decreasing?

Answer: Muscle mass is a relative value that is measured as a percentage of an animal's total weight and cannot be less than 10,000 units. (10% of the weight of the animal). When the animal eats and gains weight, the absolute value of muscle mass (in kilograms) remains unchanged. That is why the relative index (in units) is falling. Let's look at a concrete example.

Suppose an animal weighs 100 kg, its muscle mass is 10,000 units. (10%). The total weight of the animal is 100,000 units. (100%).

One workout gives +16 units to muscle mass. Muscle mass in kilograms after training will be: 100 - (10016 / 100000) = 10.016 kg.

After the feeding process (assuming an optimal diet) the following will happen: the new weight of the animal will be 100.5 kg. So the muscle mass index from this weight is: 10,016 / 100.5 - 100000 = 9,966 units. But since it cannot fall below 10,000, it becomes 10,000. When an animal loses weight (e.g. in the absence of feed), the "muscle mass" indicator remains unchanged.
