Renting a bull-breeder
One of the benefits of Livestock Breeding is the ability to get your own offspring by mating your cows to bulls. If you own no bulls, you can rent a bull of another clone from this section of the State Farm by paying the rent set by the owner of the animal.
Cows and bulls cannot be mated until they are %cow_min_breed_age% days old and %cow_min_breed_weight% kg (animals must meet both conditions).
Your cow must also be ready for mating and pregnancy. You'll know it's ready when the entire bar above the %icon_heart% heart icon in the lower right corner of the cow image is filled with orange.
You can choose to breed any bull offered for rent at the State Farm, based on its characteristics and the cost of renting.
Do not forget that the weight of the future offspring will directly depend on the weight of his parents. The heavier the bull will be at the time of mating, the greater will be the weight of the born calf.
Placing a bull-breeder for rent
Any resident of the Land of Clones with the status of "Peasant" and higher can put up a bull at the Fair. The "work efficiency" indicator of the clone (as well as other clones from your account) must be at least 0.
Your bull should be ready to mate, which will be seen by the full orange bar above the heart icon %icon_heart% in the lower right corner of the bull image. You can place a bull for rent from the page "Business" → Livestock Breeding" →"Cattle".
When placing a lot on the Fair, the seller is charged a commission in the amount of %commission_create%% of the rental price. When cancelling a lot, the commission is not refundable.
Upon the renting, a commission is charged in the amount of %commission_sell%% of the rental price.
The commissions go to the State Budget. The State, in turn, at the end of each working day pays this income to the following funds:
- 10% - to the Social Allowances Fund of the Land of Clones;
- 10% - to the fund of the Wonders of the World "Giant Sunflower";
- 10% - to the fund of the Wonders of the World "Great Ear;
- 20% - to the dividend fund of the State Farm Securities;
- 10% - to the dividend fund of the State Bank Securities;
- 20% - to the dividend fund of the Fair Securities.
Immediately after placing the bull at the fair, as well as after the moment of its production (1 time per 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.
Being at the State Farm, the bulls continue to eat and produce products as usual.
The tab "Your bulls-breeders at the State Farm" contains a list of your bulls for rent. Here you can return the animal to the farmyard (cancel the lot).
The mating takes place immediately after the owner of the cow pays the rent. Immediately after mating, the animals return to their farmyards.
After mating, the bull will not be able to mate for %bull_ready_to_matting_days% days, and the cow will gestate %cow_base_gestation_ticks% days with an optimal feed ration.
If the feed ration is not optimal, the rest period of the bull, as well as the period of pregnancy of the cow, will increase proportionally. You can read more about this in the section "Business" → "Livestock Breeding" → "Cattle" → "Help".
