Effects Edit

  • Increases the gather rate from Berry Bushes, Chickens and Ducks by 30% and Herdables (Cows, Goats, Pigs and Yaks) by 15%.

This technology makes gathering rate from Herdables and non-wild animals as fast as gathering from wild animals with Hunting Dogs Tech.


Humans started domesticating animals for consumption as early as 11,000 BC with evidence of domesticated sheep being found in Southwest Asia. Ducks, goats, pigs, chickens, water buffalo, and silkmoths all followed suit and were widely cultivated in Ancient China.
