Questions about pig farming #
Question: Do I need to build any building to buy pigs for my clones?
Answer: No, it is not necessary. However, if you are serious about raising livestock, it is recommended to build a pig barn. This building will provide you with significant advantages when breeding pigs, increasing the weight of the offspring and making it easier to care for the animals.
Question: Suppose I have a clone with the status of “bourgeois”. This clone already has 10 pigs. If one of the sows of this clone gives birth to a boar, what will happen to the “extra piglets”? After all, this clone cannot contain more animals.
Answer: You noticed correctly. A clone with “bourgeois” status cannot contain more than 10 pigs. If one of the sows of this clone gives birth to piglets, the “extra” piglets will not remain with this clone. If you have another clone that can accept “extra” piglets, they will be transferred to him. If there are no other clones available for adoption, then such a boar will automatically be sent to the state farm nursery, and you will be awarded state farm coupons in accordance with the established rules.
Question: What will happen if the “extra” animal is not a boar, but a piglet-sow?
Answer: If you have another clone that can take in an “extra” sow, then she will be transferred to this clone. In the event that you no longer have clones that could accept the sow, and all your clones have already reached the maximum number of pigs, such a sow will be transferred to the state free of charge.
Question: Is there a limit to the boar/sow ratio within the total number of pigs in a clone?
Answer: No, there are no restrictions on the ratio between the number of boars and sows in your herd. For example, a bourgeois may have either 10 sows or 10 boars, or any other ratio.
Question: Is it necessary to build a pigsty if I want to increase the size of my herd to a certain number of animals?
Answer: No, building a pigsty is not necessary even if you increase the number of pigs in your herd.
Question: Is there a limit to how much fertilizer can be produced from swine manure by the Biotechnology Department in a 24-hour period?
Answer: No, there is no such restriction. You can produce any amount of Pork Breeze fertilizer at one time or over the course of 24 hours.
Question: Are there any restrictions on the number of pork carcasses that can be processed in a meat factory in a day?
Answer: No, there are no restrictions on the number of pork carcasses processed at a meat factory during the day. You can process as many carcasses as you like at one time or throughout the day.
Question: Do I need to build any building to mate the pigs?
Answer: No, this is not necessary, especially if you are going to rent a boar at a boar fair. However, if you plan to seriously engage in livestock farming, it is recommended to build a pig barn. This building will give you great advantages when breeding pigs, increasing the weight of the offspring and making it easier to care for the animals.
Question: I have a sow. She became pregnant at 330 days of age. What will happen to the offspring, since the piglets should be born when the sow is more than 350 days old?
Answer: Do not worry. Your sow cannot mate after she reaches 350 days of age, but she can still bear offspring from matings that occurred earlier. The sow’s pregnancy will proceed normally, and the piglets will be born at the appointed time.
Question: Is it possible to purchase solar plates only in the alchemy laboratory?
Answer: No, not only. Pre-made solar wafers are also available for purchase on the Trade Guild Commodity Exchange.
Question: What happens if I have more animals than the pig barn can accommodate when it is built? For example, I have 100 animals, and I am building a pigsty to accommodate 20 animals.
Answer: In this case, not all of your animals will be able to fit into the pigsty. You don’t get to choose which of your animals go into the sty and which ones stay in their owners’ barnyards. Those animals that do not enter the sty will remain in the barnyards and will not receive the benefits provided by the sty, such as mating within the sty and breeding benefits.
Question: Why is my boar’s muscle mass decreasing?
Answer: Muscle mass is a relative value, measured as a percentage of the animal’s total weight, and cannot be below a certain value of 10,000 units. When an animal gains weight, the absolute mass of its muscles remains unchanged. Because of this, the relative importance of muscle mass may decrease.
Let’s take an example: imagine you have a boar that weighs 100 kg and its muscle mass is 10,000 units (10% of weight). The total weight of the boar is 100,000 units (100%).
One training gives +16 units. to muscle mass. Muscle mass in kilograms after training will be equal to: 100 • (10,016 / 100,000) = 10.016 kg.
After the feeding process (subject to an optimal diet), the following will happen: the new weight of the animal will be 100.5 kg. This means that the muscle mass from this weight is equal to: 10.016 / 100.5 • 100,000 = 9,966 units. But since this figure cannot fall below 10,000, it becomes equal to 10,000. When an animal loses weight (for example, in the absence of food), the “muscle mass” indicator remains unchanged.
