Pig

Pigs were one of the first animals domesticated by humans. They are an efficient source of meat, and are easy to feed because they will eat almost anything.

Pigs, called sows if female, are a domesticated animal, obtainable from both land and space traders. Pigs are omnivorous, making them easy to feed. They will eat live plants and so should be kept away from the growing zones.

Summary[edit]

Pigs are pen animals. Once tamed, pen animals cannot and do not need to be trained any further. But if left outside of a pen or caravan hitching spot, pen animals will eventually roam outside your colony. Making a caravan is not required to tie animals to a caravan hitching spot.

Analysis[edit]

Pigs are worse for food : grass than a variety of other grazers, from cows and chickens, to horses, ibex, and alpacas. Even chinchillas are better. The pig's niche is as the most nutritionally efficient omnivore, that does not require taming upkeep. By locking them into a corpse freezer full of dead raiders, this permits the conversion of long pork into pork pork.

Wild boars are the next most efficient omnivore (without training upkeep). Boars are worse for nutrition, but are better at surviving cold temperatures (and can be found in the wild).

Nutrition[edit]

When slaughtered, a pig yields 48 meat and 20 leather as a piglet; 119 meat and 36 as a juvenile; or 238 meat and 68 leather as an adult. 1 meat is equal to 0.05 nutrition.

An adult pig consumes 0.8 nutrition per day, and a female creates up to 0.23 offspring per day.

  • When offspring are slaughtered as babies, a female pig will produce 0.56 nutrition of meat per day, giving a potential nutrition efficiency of 69.8% (not counting males).
  • If the offspring are allowed to grow to adulthood, they will consume an additional 2.4 nutrition per day, but will instead yield 2.77 nutrition per day as they are slaughtered, resulting in a potential nutrition efficiency of 86.5%.

When considering a population of equal numbers of males and females, these nutrition efficiencies fall to 34.9% for baby slaughter and 69.2% for adult slaughter.

The next best pen-omnivore, the wild boar, has an potential nutrition efficiency of 71.1% (or 56.5% nutrient efficient with 1:1 female:male). For comparison, a horse has a base nutrient efficiency of 150.6%, much higher than a pig or wild boar. Chickens, ibex, and deer reach similar numbers.

*As of version 1.1.2610, all animals can be tamed. The percentage of likelihood of success depends on factors such as the Animals Wildness Percentage, Pawn Handling Skill, and others. More information can be found on the animals page.
