Dairy Farmer  CF

Historical background

Cattle were raised almost everywhere in medieval Europe, for their dairy products -- milk, cheese, butter; as draft animals -- the indispensable ox; and for their meat, tallow, and hides. Peasants might own at best a few cows and a yoke or two of oxen. They were also bred in certain parts of Normandy, Wales and Ireland, on small dairy or feeder farms. Nobles, peasants, churches and monasteries on the other hand, could raise considerable stock on the basis of small herds ( greyes) averaging twenty to thirty head.

How does it work?

Use your Job Log to breed up to Rank cows. You can milk cows after cooldown time. A standard roll determines if you produce anything.

You can process the milk into cheese (with the Cheese Vat) of butter (Butter Churn). Alternatively you can ask a Butcher to deal with your cow.

You can only breed cows in temperate and tropical rural areas.

Use your Job Log on the ground when you reached your maximum amount of spawns (ie: as many as you have ranks in this job) to remove all the animals you previously spawned. Thia can be handy when you lose one or more after moving between areas.
