Types of products

Cattle produce several types of useful products, and are also capable of acting as a commodity in their own right, bringing you gold coins.

Below is a list of all possible sources of profit in livestock housing:

  • Milk production.
  • Beef production.
  • Production of cow manure.
  • Production of calf skins.
  • Getting young animals (birth of steers and heifers).
  • Exchange of young steers for State Farm coupons.
  • Renting out bulls-producers for gold coins.
  • Sale of cows and bulls at the Cattle Fair for gold coins.

Each age group of cattle has its own peculiarities of obtaining one or another type of production. Let's take a closer look at all these types of products and sources of profit.

Milk production

Milk is one of the main products of cattle.

Your animal must meet the following requirements to produce milk:

  • Sex of the animal: cow.
  • The age of the animal: from 61 to 420 days inclusive.
  • Weight of the animal: at least 320 kg.

Milk yields from each individual cow depend on her age and weight. Below are two tables to help you determine how much milk a cow will produce.

Table. Milk yields for cows aged 61 to 240 days under the condition of optimal feed ration

Weight of the cow (kg)Quantity Молоко milk at optimal feed ration (l/day)
320 to 4007.7 liters/day
400.001 to 4508,085
450.001 to 5008,47
500.001 to 5508,855
550.001 to 6009,24
600.001 to 6509,625
from 650.001 and up10,78

Table. Milk yields for cows aged 241 to 420 days under the condition of optimal feed ration

Weight of the cow (kg)Quantity Молоко milk at optimal feed ration (l/day)
320 to 4005,5
400.001 to 4505,775
450.001 to 5006,05
500.001 to 5506,325
550.001 to 6006,6
600.001 to 6506,875
from 650.001 and up7,7

If a cow receives a sub-optimal (incomplete) feed ration, production will be proportionally lower. If the animal is left hungry - there is no milk production on that day.

You can use the resulting milk in the following ways:

  • Serve in the Refectory as food for your clones (source of stamina).
  • Load it onto a pleasure craft to equip it for a voyage to distant shores.
  • Use for fattening young cattle.
  • Use for fattening young pigs.
  • Use as an ingredient for making some elixirs in the Innovation Center.
  • Sell on the Commodity Exchange in the Trade Guild.

Beef production

Beef is one of the main products of cattle.

In order to get beef you need to submit your cattle to the Meat Factory. Cattle of any sex, age and weight can be turned in. Processing one animal carcass at the Meat Factory costs 2 gold coins.

The amount of beef that can be obtained by cutting each particular animal depends on its age and weight:

  • If the age of the animal is up to 75 days (inclusive), the weight of the beef resulting from processing will be equal to 1/2 the weight of the carcass.
  • You will get proportionally less meat from animals aged 76-480 days (up to 0 kg at day 480).

The amount of beef obtained by cutting an animal over 75 days of age is calculated by the formula:

W = (m/2)*(480-A)/(480-75),

Where:

  • m - weight of the animal at the time of cutting.
  • A is the age of the animal in days (A > 75).

You can use the resulting beef in the following ways:

  • Serve in the Refectory as food for your clones (source of stamina).
  • Load it onto a pleasure craft to equip it for a voyage to distant shores.
  • Use as a guard dog food.
  • Use as dragon food.
  • Use as an ingredient for making some elixirs in the Innovation Center.
  • Sell on the Commodity Exchange in the Trade Guild.

If the weight of the animal delivered to the Meat Factory is 350 kg or more, you will also receive one calf skin.

Cow manure production

Cow manure is produced by animals of all genders, ages and weights.

The amount of manure produced by each individual animal depends on its age. Manure production has its own characteristics in each age group

Table. Manure production by cattle

GenderCow manure Manure at 1-60 days of ageCow manure Manure at 61-240 days of ageCow manure Manure at 241-420 days of ageCow manure Manure at 421-480 days of age
BullSmooth increase from 0.1 kg on day 1 to 28 kg on day 603225Smooth decrease from 21 kg on day 421 to 0.5 kg on day 480
CowSmooth increase from 0.1 kg on day 1 to 28 kg on day 602821Smooth decrease from 21 kg on day 421 to 0.5 kg on day 480

These values will be true if the animal receives the optimal (complete) feed ration required by the appropriate age group. If an animal receives a sub-optimal (incomplete) feed ration, production will be proportionally lower. If the animal is left hungry - there is no manure production on that day.

Cow manure is a valuable raw material for processing into Dukhan Uragan fertilizer. Manure can be processed under Business → Livestock → Manure and Fertilizer. You can use the resulting fertilizer for your agricultural fields (see "Business → Farming").

To get 1 kg of "Cow Breeze" fertilizer, you need to spend:

  • 7 kg of cow manure.
  • 0.002 gold coin.

A significant impact on the cost of processing cow manure into fertilizer "Cow Breeze" has a Cowshed.

If for some reason you do not want to process your own cow manure, you can sell it at the Fair. You can also sell the ready-made fertilizer "Cow Breeze" there.

Production of calf skins

Calf skins are an additional product that is obtained when an animal is cut at the Meat Factory. Processing one animal carcass at the Meat Factory costs 2 gold coins. You can get calfskin when cutting an animal of any gender and age - but only if the weight of the animal at the time of cutting is not less than 350 kg.

You can use the resulting calfskin in the following ways:

  • Use for top quality calfskin at the Tannery in the Principality or at the Settlement.
  • Sell at the Fair.

Exchanging young steers for State Farm coupons

Young steers less than 60 days old can be turned in to the State Farm Nursery. For each surrendered steer you will receive State Farm coupons, at the rate of: 1 coupon per 1 kg of weight of the animal (at the time of exchange).

Only steers can be exchanged. There is no such exchange for chicks.

You can use your State Farm coupons in the following ways:

  • Use to purchase State Farm securities or Meat Factory securities at a Securities Auction.
  • Use to make superfoods for your cattle.
  • Sell on the Commodity Exchange in the Trade Guild.
