A Guide To Animal Husbandry In Medieval Dynasty

Along with farming and hunting in Medieval Dynasty, you will have the opportunity to take care of a variety of animals. As you increase your farming technology points, you will unlock new animal husbandry buildings to add to your village. From these buildings, you can assign workers to collect materials and breed animals for you.

To increase your farming technology points, you will need to farm. Various farm-related activities will increase your total technology points, allowing you to build and craft new things. First, let’s take a look at providing food for your future animals.

Animal Feed

All of your animals (excluding bees) will rely on animal feed as their food source. This can be crafted at a barn workbench with the following materials.

  • 1 Rye Grain
  • 1 Oat Green
  • 5 Straw

The scheme for animal feed will unlock when you acquire 100 farming points. With enough points, you can purchase the scheme for 50 coins. If you don’t have enough materials to make your own animal feed, that’s okay. Animal feed can also be purchased from farming vendors in town. If you want to boost your crafting skill, you can also buy the rye and oat separately to make your own. Straw can easily be gathered from around water sourcesso you don’t have to worry about running out.

Animals require different amounts of feed depending on their type and age. Overall, the larger an animal is, the more food it will require. Additionally, baby animals consume less food. For example, a chick just needs around three animal feed portions per year, while an adult hen needs six. Full-grown horses, on the other hand, will need 24 portions of animal feed per year.

Every animal husbandry building will have a trough where you can place food. As you fill the trough, the percentage will increase, indicating the amount of food in it. To add the animal feed, just interact with the trough with food in your inventory.
