Rent a boar breeder
One of the advantages of pig farming is the ability to produce your own young by mating your sows with boars.
Mating is not possible until the sow and boar are 31 days old and weigh 70 kg (animals must meet both conditions).
Your sow should also be ready for mating and pregnancy. You'll know it's ready when the entire bar above the heart icon in the lower right corner of the pig image is filled with orange.
You can choose to mate any boar exhibited for lease at State Farm based on the animal's characteristics and the cost of the lease.
Don't forget that the weight of the future offspring will directly depend on the weight of its parents. The heavier the boar will be at the time of mating, the greater will be the total weight of the piglets born.
Exposing the boar
Any resident of the Clone Earth with the status of "farmer" or higher can exhibit a boar breeder at the fair. A clone (and other clones from your account) must have a stamina rating of at least 0.
Your boar should be ready to mate, as indicated by the orange bar above the heart icon in the lower right corner of the boar image. You can exhibit the boar from the page "Business" → "Livestock" → "Pigs".
The seller will be charged a fee of 0.5% of the rental price when the lot is offered at the Fair. If you withdraw the lot, the commission is not refundable.
A commission of 4.5% of the rental price is charged upon the transaction.
Immediately after the boar is put on the fair, and after the moment of its production (once a day) the lot becomes unavailable for rent for a random period of time (from 5 to 30 minutes). After this period, the lot becomes available for rent again.
While at the State Farm, boars continue to feed and produce as usual.
Your State Farm Producers tab contains a list of your boars for rent. Here you will be able to return the animal to the barn (cancel the lot).
Mating takes place immediately after the sow owner pays the rent. Immediately after mating, the animals return to their cattle yards.
After mating, the boar will not be able to mate for 10 days and the sow will carry the litter for 35 days with an optimal feed ration.
If the feed ration is not optimal, the rest period of the boar, as well as the period of pregnancy of the sow will increase proportionally.
