Using a Net Launcher, Livestock may be captured and tamed after which they start producing items for the player.
The following animals can be tamed as livestock:
|Goat||An ordinary goat||1x|
|Llama||An ordinary llama||1x|
When livestock are tamed, they must be fed with grass from Grass Plots to produce the provided items listed above. A single Grass Plot takes 5 minutes to grow, and the animals eat from it every 8 minutes on normal mode (for other difficulties, see the Game Modes page). As such, it's enough to have a single Grass Plot per animal, though it is recommended to have more as a buffer in case the player forgets to water them. A Sprinkler can assist this process by automatically watering empty Grass Plots, but will require a Battery to work, and the battery must be changed manually when it runs out. When connected to an Electric Purifier through Water Pipes, the player does not need to worry about refilling the sprinkler with water.
If cared for, Cluckers lay Eggs, Goats can be Milked with a Bucket, and Llamas can be Sheared to get Wool. A lot of items and mechanics rely on animal produce, so having Livestock on the raft is a necessity to unlock late-game items. The head of the livestock animals lowers if they get hungry, and they stop all production of animal products. Resupplying the animals with grass will enable them to produce again.
