Pen markers provide a zone for pen animals to be held.
In Version 1.3 pen animals were introduced. While all animals are tamable, pen animals can no longer be trained or set to an allowed area and instead must be led to a designated pen; if they are not led to a designated pen or have an accessible path to exit the map, pen animals will slowly wander away. Pens can only be defined by a pen marker.
Pen markers are cheap and a requirement if you are to tame any pen animals. A pen is defined when a pen marker is placed within fences, walls, and doors preventing any exit to the sides of the map. However, unlike rooms pens take into account held open doors / fence gates and animal flaps allowing you to expand or restrict the area when needed. In addition to defining a pen, Pen markers provide various tools to help manage cattle. These are: An animals menu in order to select what animals are allowed in the pen (male / female option included), a food menu in order to determine the natural nutrition growth within the pen and the total consumption calculation, and an auto-cut menu to designate what plants are allowed to grow within the pen and what are not.
When managing pens make sure to check the nutrition grown compared to the nutrition consumed, if there nutrition grown is less than the nutrition consumed then animal starvation is inevitable.
