Welcome to the Swine Herder’s Information Site.
The Swine Herder is a crucial part of your Town’s needs, not only part of the food production, but also provides you with all drops and by products. The Swine Herder will breed and butcher the pigs for you as long as you provide it with Carrots and an axe.
Click here for full information about the Swine’s hut block and using your Building Tool. Once the hut is placed, the Swine Herder will be automatically assigned (or you can manually assign one with the best “Traits” for a Swine Herder if you changed this in the settings tab in the Town Hall’s GUI.
You now officially have a “Swine Herder!” CONGRATULATIONS!
You will have to capture and bring in 2 pigs to the Swine Herder’s hut. The Herder will not catch and bring in any animal, only breed and butcher the ones in his hut area, so make sure you provide it with 2 initial pig.
The Swine Herder will currently work with minecraft pigs, but might work with some “modded” pigs (from other mods), as long as they are coded as pig and they have normal breeding behaviour. They will drop anything that is modified by another mod as well, so if another mod changes the drops (f.e.) to include bones or other type of meat the Swine Herder will collect these as well.
Note: The Swine Herder will only keep alive 2 of every kind of animal per hut level, so at level 5 they will have 10 animals in their holding pens alive to breed and butcher. this means they will keep MORE and have faster production and collection of meats, drops and by products. So:
