Game InfoEdit

Bonus resource.

  • Base yield:
    • 1 20xFood5 Food
  • Modifiers:
    • +1 20xProduction5 Production from Pasture improvement
    • +1 20xProduction5 Production from Stable


Cattle are found only on open grassland terrain, and as such are a great 20xFood5 Food booster, providing 3 20xFood5 Food without any improvement. They allow you to build a Stable building in a nearby city; when combined with a Pasture improvement, the tile also yields +2 20xProduction5 Production to help your production.

Historical InfoEdit

Some of the earliest domesticated animals in history, cows, oxen and other bovines have been used for livestock, dairy, and as draft animals. In addition, cattle skin has been used for leather, and its dung as a fuel source. Many tribal civilizations count a person's wealth by how many cattle he or she possesses.
