Pig products

Pigs produce several types of useful products, and are also capable of acting as a commodity themselves, bringing you gold coins.

All possible sources of profit in pig keeping are listed below:

  • Pork production.
  • Bacon production.
  • Production of pig manure.
  • Obtaining young animals (birth of boars and sows).
  • Exchange of young boars for State Farm coupons.
  • Renting out boars-producers for gold coins.
  • Sows and boars for sale at the Pig Fair for gold coins.
  • Prizes for high sports achievements of boars.

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

Pork production

Pork is one of the main products of the pork industry.

To get pork you need to submit your cattle to the Meat Factory. Cattle of any sex and weight can be delivered. The pig must be between 1 and 350 days old inclusive. Processing one animal carcass at the Meat Factory costs 2 gold coins. You can also get bacon when you cut the animal.

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

  • If the age of the animal is up to 100 days (inclusive), the weight of the pork resulting from processing will be equal to 1/2 the weight of the carcass.
  • From animals aged 101-350 days you will get proportionally less meat (up to 0 kg at day 350).

The amount of pork obtained by cutting an animal over 100 days of age is calculated by the formula:

W = (m/2)*(350-A)/(350-100),

Where:

  • m - weight of the animal at the time of cutting;
  • A - age of the animal in days (100 < A < 350).

You can use the resulting pork 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.

Bacon production

To get bacon you need to deliver your cattle to the Meat Factory. Cattle of any sex and weight can be delivered. But to produce bacon, the pig must be between 101 and 350 days old inclusive. Processing one animal carcass at the Meat Factory costs 2 gold coins. When cutting the animal, you can also get pork.

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

  • If the animal is less than 100 days old, you will not get bacon, only pork.
  • From animals 101-350 days old, you will get bacon in proportionally greater quantities from 0 kg on day 100 to 1/2 the carcass weight of the animal on day 350.

The amount of bacon obtained by cutting an animal more than 100 days old is calculated according to the formula:

W = (m/2)*(A-100)/(350-100),

Where:

  • m - weight of the animal at the time of cutting;
  • A - age of the animal in days (100 < A < 350).

You can use the resulting bacon 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.
  • Sell on the Commodity Exchange in the Trade Guild.

Pig manure production

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

The amount of manure produced by each individual animal depends on its age. In each age group of pigs, manure production has its own characteristics.

Table. Pig manure production by age group

Age of the animal, daysPig manure Manure, kg/day
1-300,1 → 8
31-3508
351-3808 → 0,1

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

Pig manure is a valuable raw material for processing into "Pig Ambre" 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 Pork Ambre fertilizer, you need to spend:

  • 4 kg of pig manure.
  • 0.002 gold coin.

A significant impact on the cost of processing pig manure into "Pig Ambre" fertilizer is the presence of the Pig House.

If for any reason you do not want to process pig manure yourself, you can sell it at the Fair. There you can also sell ready-made Pig's Ambre fertilizer.

Exchange of young boars for State Farm coupons

Young boars less than 30 days old can be turned in to the State Farm Nursery. For each boar you surrender, you will receive State Farm coupons, at the rate of: 1 coupon per 1 kg of animal weight at the time of exchange.

Only boars can be exchanged. There is no such exchange for sows.

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 produce Super Feed for your cattle.
  • Sell on the Commodity Exchange in the Trade Guild.
