Nice to have: barns slaughtering schedule


I currently have two barns with 16 cows. Each spring I get 8 new cows (according to the message). They slaughter them one by one immediately rather than taking their time during the year. This makes an incredible amount of meat in a very short time.

Current mitigation:

I have a root cellar that accepts only meat next to my barns (meat is deactivated in all other storages).
I have 6 (yes 6) smokers also next to the barn (that accept only meat too - no fish).
Once the slaughtering starts, my smokers try to keep up with the flow, but even having 6 of them is not enough, I still get some spoiled meat in the end. I could put even more smokers, but that’s just madness.

I could also do the slaughtering manually (go down from 16 to 13 during the year) … but that’s a bit annoying.

Possible solution:

If a barn needs 4 cows slaughtered, it slaughters 1 every 3 months. And if the system could be “global” (not per barn but all barns) it would be even better. 8 new cows, slaughter 1 per month.


For me I think the smokers need to be improved, like a lv2 smoker, that can handle bigger influxes of meat.

Indeed, it would be nice.
But still being able to better distribute the meat supply during the year would generate less waste.
