Graze your animals to pause health and feeding.
We’re glad to announce the launch of Animal Grazing
You can now send your animals for grazing to pause their health check and feeding. During grazing, animals will not produce extracts.
From the start, the CropBytes community has actively shared their input to help us build a better experience for everyone. Animal grazing is another such feature that’s built with input from our community. We’re always listening!
Animal hibernation will now be grazing.
Let’s deep dive into how animal grazing works!
To send your animals for grazing, head to the barn and click graze. Grazing applies to all animals of the same type. Feeding for that day needs to be complete before the animals can be sent for grazing. Once animals are sent for grazing, a 7-day wait time is required for them to return. A fee is required for sending the animals for grazing.
Animals returning from grazing.
Animals will return back from grazing only after 7 days. Once animals are back, the feed will have to be given for that day. Missing feed will result in a loss of health. Once animals are back, they can’t be sent back for grazing for the next 7 days.
EG. If the user has 3 x Zing and 2 x Badshaw in his shed, He will need to feed all the animals in the shed before being able to send for grazing. Once complete, he can select Zing and pause it. All 3 Zings in the shed will be paused. Badshaw will not get affected.
The fee for grazing is applicable in CBX per animal for the 7-day grazing period.
