Thanks for the reply and with my latest game 2 stockbreeders were not needed for 1 paddock indeed, but in the previous game I build a max size paddock slightly too far away from a home and storehouse and the worker just had to run so far it took very long just to collect the milk and a second stockbreeder in this case would’ve probably solved the problem. That being said the problem was bad planning, but in my opinion the option to have 2 would still be nice just in case situations like these occur for some reason.

    Interesting, then I change it back to max 2 in the version I’m working on now and then.


Hello, I have a question about this.
Ingame I can only find a paddock instead of a pasture which can also be 25×25 which at this size can only hold 20 cows while in the vanilla game a 20×20 holds 20 cows, do they work differently? Also it says here 1-2 herdsman,but I do not see an option for more than 1 worker. Did I miss something?

thanks in advance, Arjen


    After a little bit of testing I’m guessing the vanilla game can hold 1 cow for every 20 squares of pasture and the north paddock only 1 cow for every 30 squares so I guess that’s figured out already. I still wonder how I can get 2 villagers to work in one single pasture as it currently seems my best bet is to have two 12×25 paddocks instead of one 25×25 since a 24×25 should also host 20 cows.

    The page was not up to date with the latest mod version, now it’s correct.

    And you are right about 30 tiles required by a cow. A second stockbreeder can’t be added anymore because it did not make it more productive anyway
