Cattle farm produces Beef.png beef from cattle pastures. It can be built both in the Old World and New World, it doesn't require any fertility, only fields are needed to operate.

Productivity

The Old and New World versions of this building are significantly different.

In the Old World it takes 120 seconds to produce 1 ton of beef so the production rate is 0,5 ton of beef per minute. To achieve 100% productivity the farm needs 4 pastures (size: 3x4).

In the New World it takes 60 seconds to produce 1 ton of beef so the production rate is 1 ton of beef per minute. To achieve 100% productivity the farm needs 6 pastures (size: 3x4).

Productivity can be changed by adjusting working conditions and using items. Electricity has no effect on cattle farms.

Due to different production rates and number of pastures needed, the New World version of the cattle farm is more cost and space efficient - it produces more beef using less space overall. To achieve the same productivity 2 Old World farms are needed while in the New World only 1 farm. In the first case 8 pastures, 2 buildings are needed, in the second case only 6 pastures and 1 building. The maintenance cost is also lower in case of the New World (-25 vs -100). However, given how much space in the New World is needed, it is recommended to produce beef in the Old World, or to keep your production in the same region as it is needed.

Beef usage and production chains

Beef is a resource needed in production of two important needs: Canned food.png canned food - a basic need of Artisans.png Artisans and Engineers.png Engineers; and Tortilla.png tortillas - a basic need of Obreros.png Obreros.

Beef can be used during expeditions as extra rations, it grants 10 bonus points to force skill per 50 tons. It can also be sold for 80 coins, or purchased for 200 coins per ton (by passive trading).

All production chains which utilize beef are listed below.
