Pigs produce ~1.9 truffles/day if you let them out the entire day, but they’re not the best choice for “intensive capitalism”. They are great if you have a bit of extra space available and do not want more than 1 barn.
Disclaimer: These tests were performed in 1.2 beta build.
Greetings, today i ran a test to see how frequently pigs and rabbits would produce. I’ve let them do their thing for 71 days and i’ve collected the results (pigs grow 4 days later, so only 67 days for them).
Rabbits consistently produce once every 4 days regardless of friendship, however, their produce will improve with it.
Meanwhile, pigs, on average, produce once every 7.4 days!
Over 67 days, 2 pigs produced 19 truffle.
Over 33 days at 5 stars, they produced 9 truffle.
Which leads to an efficiency of ~14%.
Additionally, friendship level did not improve truffle quality, this doesn’t matter since botanist is a thing, but it’s worth noting that 0 star pigs produce just as often as 5 star pigs.
Lastly, they don’t produce during winter and rainy days.
conclusion: pigs are terribad in the current 1.2 beta build, don’t bother with them (unless you’re looking to complete bundles and/or roleplay).
