All About Livestock

To raise livestock, you need a Pasture and a Herdsman. The minimum size for a pasture is 7 by 7 and the maximum size is 30 by 30.

 

Following is a list of the livestock that are available, showing what each produces. Those marked with an asterisk (*) are from original Banished.  The number of squares needed per animal is given along with the price of one animal at the trading post. This is the regular price - if you order a particular type of livestock from a trader, you will be charged a higher price!

 

Variations on the pasture include the fenceless pasture and the slope conforming pasture

 

Beef Cows (brown):

  • Purchase Price:  800
  • Space per Animal:  20; a 10 by 20 pasture will hold 10 Beef Cows
  • Produces: Leather, Beef and Bonemeal when slaughtered (note that Beef Cows age faster than Fresian Cows so they produce more Beef; however they do not produce Milk.)

Bison

  • Purchase Price: 800
  • Space per Animal: 20; a 10 by 20 Pasture will hold 10 Bison
  • Produces: Leather, Bison Meat and Bonemeal when slaughtered

Chickens* (brown): 

  • Purchase Price: 400
  • Space per Animal:  6; a 7 by 9 Pasture will hold 10 Chickens.
  • Produces:  Eggs; when slaughtered, produces Feathers and Chicken meat. Chickens produce more eggs than Leghorns, but less meat.

Deer

  • Purchase Price:  600
  • Space per Animal:  16; a 10 by 16 Pasture will hold 10 Deer
  • Produces:  Leather, Venison and Bonemeal when slaughtered

Friesian Cows* (black and white)

  • Purchase Price: 800
  • Space per Animal: 20; a 10 by 20 Pasture will hold 10 Friesians
  • Produces: Milk; when slaughtered, produces Leather, Beef and Bonemeal. Note that Beef Cows, who don't give Milk, age faster so they produce more Beef.

Horses

  • Purchase Price:  800
  • Space per Animal:  20; a 10 x 20 pasture will hold 10 Horses
  • Produces:  Leather, Cheval and Bonemeal when slaughtered (note that the Horses for Trade mod available at Kralyerg's Kave of Krazy Kontraptions, will allow you to use Horses for trade instead of food)

Leghorns (white):

  • Purchase Price 400
  • Space per Animal:  6; a 7 by 9 Pasture will hold 10 Leghorns
  • Produces:  Eggs; when slaughtered, produces Feathers and Chicken meat. Because they age faster than Chickens, they produce more meat; however they produce fewer eggs.

Llamas 

  • Purchase Price: 600
  • Space per Animal: 16; a 10 by 16 Pasture will hold 10 Llamas
  • Produces:  Wool; when slaughtered produces Charki (llama meat) and Bonemeal.

Pigs

  • Purchase Price: 550
  • Space per Animal:  16; a 10 by 16 Pasture will hold 10 Pigs
  • Produces: Leather, Pork and Bonemeal when slaughtered.

Sheep*

Each of these have a Butcher that will turn their meat into and Meat Cuts, Tallow for your Chandlery, and Sausage (Bacon if Pigs). The Smokehouse (introduced in CC:CotGL) will turn pork into bacon, other meats into jerky, as well as make smoked cheeses and smoked fish. The Saltery produces a variety of salted meats and the Soup Tinnery uses meats to produce Soup. Leather is used at the Tailor or the Clothier, and feathers are used by the bedding maker.
