[править] Rent a bull for breeding
One of the advantages of cattle breeding is the ability to get your own calves, mating your cows with bulls. If you do not own a bull, you can rent it from another clone in this section of the State Farm by paying the rent assigned by the animal owner.
Mating is not possible until both animals reach the age of %cow_min_breed_age% days and weight of %cow_min_breed_weight% kg (animals must meet both conditions).
Your cow must also be ready for mating and gestation. You will realize that it is ready when the whole column above the heart icon %icon_heart% in the lower right corner of the cow image is filled with red.
You can choose for mating any bull placed for rent in a State Farm based on its characteristics and rental cost.
Do not forget that the weight of the future offspring will directly depend on the weight of his parents, and therefore, the heavier the bull at the time of mating, the greater the weight of the born calf.
[править] Placing bulls for rent
Any resident of the Land of Clones with social status of the peasant and higher whose Energy not below 0, can place his own bulls at the Rent-a-Bull Fair. At the same time, your bull must be ready for mating, which will be seen by the full filling of the red column above the heart icon %icon_heart% in the lower right corner of the bull image. You can place the bull for rent at the "Cattle" page of the "Business - Livestock Breeding" game section.
When placing a lot at the Fair, the seller is charged a Commission of %commission_create%% of the specified price. When removing the lot, the Commission is not returned.
Upon the transaction, the seller is charged a Commission of %commission_sell%% of the rent price.
At the end of each working day, the State Farm pays the withheld commissions to the following reserves:
- 10% - to the Social Reserves of the Land of Clones
- 10% - to the Reserves of Wonder of the World “Giant Sunflower”
- 10% - to the Reserves of Wonder of the World “Great Ear”
- 20% - to the State Farm’s Securities Reserves
- 10% - to the State Bank’s Securities Reserves
- 20% - to the Fair’s Securities Reserves
Immediately after the placing of bull, as well as after it produces of products (once a day), the lot becomes unavailable for rent for a random period of time (from 5 to 30 minutes).
While they are on the State Farm, the bulls continue to eat and produce products as usual.
On the "your bulls-breeders on he State Farm" tab is a list of your bulls, placed for rent. Here you can cancel the bull's placing for rent and return it to the Barnyard.
[править] After the mating
Mating occurs immediately after the payment of the rent, then the animals return to their barnyards. After mating, the bull will not be able to the next mate for %bull_ready_to_matting_days% days, and the cow will bear offspring for %cow_base_gestation_ticks% days with an optimal feed diet.If the feed diet is suboptimal - the rest period of the bull, as well as the period of gestation of the cow will increase proportionally. You can read more about it in the "Cattle" help section.
